What is paid social and how does it work?

Paid social advertising is when a business pays to place targeted ads within the different social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and LinkedIn. Much the same as paid search, you’ll pay a specific amount each time a user clicks on one of your ads.

Your social ads can feature text, images, and video in line with highly-targeted advertising options (specific groups, locations, and people). Once published they will appear within your target audience’s social media feeds alongside organic content.

What's the difference between paid search and paid social?

Paid search relates to running paid ads within the search engines – responding to your customer’s search intent – while paid social enables you to approach your target audience via targeted advertising across social media.

If you’re looking for a short-term solution paid search is your best bet – the tools text ads are a great option for quickly attracting customers who are ready to convert. Whereas paid social is a long-term, creative solution, helping you to build relationships and gradually generate interest in your services among your target audience.

How do paid social and organic social posts differ?

Paid social advertising relates to targeted ads within the different social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and LinkedIn.

Organic social posts are those published to a social media platform with no advertising spend to support them, an effective way to communicate with your followers for free.

Why should I use paid social ads over organic content?

Paid social enables you to segment different groups, locations, and people with highly granular, cost-effective digital advertising. You can also easily review your spending and see which ads are delivering the most success for your business.

With no advertising spend behind them organic social posts are great for updating your existing customers and followers, but you’ll find they’re far harder to reach anyone unaware of your services.

Which social media platforms do you use?

At LOCALiQ we work with a wide range of social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and LinkedIn. Our digital marketing specialists can support you with paid ads on any of these channels, creating and designing a paid social strategy perfectly tailored to your business. Contact our friendly team today to see how we can help.

Are Facebook ads worth the money?

Whether you want to inspire more clicks or to encourage people to learn about your product, buy a ticket or download an e-book, Facebook web ads are a great way to get people clicking to your website and visiting the pages that you’d like them to see.

Did you know Facebook reaches 59% of the world’s social networking population? Plus, look at the many benefits to the platforms ads below:

Easily reach your site

The entire ad is clickable, so people will be directed to your web page whether they click the image or the button.

Drive your CTAs

Choose the call-to-action button that correlates to your goal to get people to take your desired action.

Grab people’s attention

You can feature thumb-stopping videos, photos or image carousels in your website ads.

When is the best time to post my social ads?

Generally, the best engagement times for UK social ads are between 9 – 10am Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with these also being the most successful days to post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Sunday’s usually see the least engagement.

How much do paid social ads cost?

The cost-per-click across the social media platforms varies for each channel. Here are the average UK-costs for an advert on each site or app.

Facebook – £0.40 per click
Twitter – £79 per month
Instagram – £0.50 per click
TikTok – £6 per click
LinkedIn – £4-£6 per click
