Not long ago, I asked Facebook marketing expert Andrea Vahl to re-write a blog post for us called The Truth About Facebook Ads: Do They Actually Work?
The original post, which I wrote about 2 years ago, referenced Forrester research that highlighted the fact that marketing directors at large corporations rank Facebook at the bottom of their list of viable tools for marketing.But a lot has changed since then.Today, Facebook has upped its game and has enhanced its targeting capabilities so that it actually can be a viable tool, if you know what you're doing.That's Where Andrea Vahl Came In
Our team knows a good bit about Facebook and how to leverage it for business, but whenever I have a question about Facebook the first person I ask is Andrea Vahl or her business partner Phyllis Khare. And when it came time to re-write our post about Facebook with new and updated information, I asked Andrea to take a stab at it since she know it inside and out.So, when it was time to do an interview about Facebook for my new podcast, who was the first person I turned to? Andrea Vahl, of course. After all, she's the co-author of Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies
and the co-founder of the Social Media Manager School
