Yahoo has been the King of display (banner ads) marketing for a very long time. Well, that is about to change with Facebook ad revenues increasing at breakneck speed.
“Yahoo!’s US display ad revenues will increase by double digits each year from 2010 through 2012. Despite that, not only will Facebook’s display revenues surpass Yahoo!’s this year, Google’s revenues will exceed Yahoo!’s next year,” said David Hallerman, principal analyst at eMarketer. “What that leapfrogging trend confirms is the strong demand among brand marketers for online display ad placements.”
So why is Facebook catching up and passing internet giants that have been ingrained with business owners, national brands and agencies for so long? The answer is simple - the eyeballs are on Facebook AND they are cheap.
Facebook Ads is a great branding tool! Whether you send the traffic to their Facebook Page or your website is up to you. For as little as $1000, you can have your branded message viewed by literally millions of consumers in your market area. You can even target by age, gender and just about anything asked of people when they create their FB account.
