True or False? "Facebook is the Best Place to Advertise Your Product or Service"

What do you think about this statement? Here are my thoughts on the matter - please feel free to look at this argument, disagree, agree, pick apart or reorganize it. This is not about having the right answer, it's about thinking about this argument and how you feel about.

My Observations

Facebook at approximately 1.2 billion users as of January 2014 and still growing. It is the fastest growing and largest social network around and in my option one of the better places to advertise your business. However, there is a big caveat - if you are trying to get organic traffic, entice people through posts on pages or interactions on group pages, unfortunately you are are throwing time out the window. To make Facebook work for you and your business you MUST invest in your business and advertising.

You should think about it this way...

You have an awesome thing to tell people about. In fact, you have a beautiful site, great products and amazing copy but if no one knows about it then you will never sell anything. You have to tell your target audience about what you have to offer, what you do and how they can benefit from your products or services. How do you do this? Marketing! Marketing is basically a way for you to share your message with a bunch of people you may or may not know so they can buy what you offer.

So back to Facebook...

How can Facebook be a successful marketing tool for your business? Easy, you have to hand over the money. As Mari Smith, one of my most favorite public speakers and experts on Facebook believes, Facebook is where it is at but we have had it good for a long time - the free ride has come to an end (just like it did with Google) and it will make everything work better in the end.
