Calling ALL Social Media Wizzards & GURUs on ADM out there!! - Check this out! Need some advice please??

**Listen I need to hear from ALL of the Social Media Warlocks, Wizzards, Witches & GURUs on ADM!! Need your thoughts/advice/facts/stats about this topic that Pat Nash posted yesterday - 

Are Facebook Geo-targeting Ads worth it for dealerships?

Ken Beam and myself have been inundated with a lot of marketing material concerning Facebook Geo-targeting Ads.

We've been told they work great for dealerships. When we had a conference call with Facebook to discuss these ads in particular, they

couldn't give us one case study of a dealership utilizing these geo-targeting ads. Manufacturers using them yes. Dealerships, no.

So my question is, does anyone have any case studies of dealerships utilizing Facebook geo-targeting ads to generate business?

Specifically, a suburban dealership that has had success with these Facebook ads. I say that because our two dealerships are modest size dealerships

in a suburban setting. A 500,000 sq/ft monolith wouldn't be an accurate comparison. Any proof via dealership case studies would be greatly appreciated.

Always taking it easy in Florida =)

Good luck with your search on case studies for dealerships, I don't think I've ever seen a paid ad from a dealership.

I didn't just google an answer, I've read this e-book and found the information in it to be helpful as your FB Rep thought it would be.

Hey Ketty............ appreciate it but that`s exactly the answer I`m not looking for...

Not interested in those type of generic stats as to how popular this type of advertising is amongst of businesses other than Auto Dealers......period. 

"Does anyone have any case studies of dealerships utilizing Facebook geo-targeting ads to generate business?" >>>>>>>>>>> A case study or example of a dealer that is utilizing these ads.


That is the question my Dear.................. 


As for just Googling answers....well.............anyone can do that Ketty.


I want real-time examples not the typical "Social-Media is the greatest thing since slice-bread" answer. In a nut shell, I want facts not opinions. 


Lastly when we spoke to the Facebook Rep, he sent us the same link you did Ketty!~ lol


Thanks Ketty -
