Facebook Ads and Google Ads continue to evolve.
It's not so much "if"you use them anymore, but "how", "when", and "which".
Ads help drive traffic and grow leads when used properly. With the rapid rise of Facebook Ads the question often is, "What works best, Facebook Ads or Google Ads?"
In this episode of Halftime Mike I dive into this practical question and give you answers. This episode flows out of our own work for using both ad platforms for our own sites (TabSite.com and DigitalHill.com) as well as our work on behalf of clients. When I saw the infographic below, I knew I wanted to dive into this topic a bit further and give you my own take!
Here's a quick breakdown on strengths for each ad type. Remember, today it's not so much "if" you need to use ads but "when" and "which one".
The Winner... I use them both, and they both have merits and uses, but I like Facebook marketing the best.
It has by far the most powerful demographic targeting options that allow you to reach the people that have demonstrated an interest in your product or service, so your ROI is higher. But, don't exclude Google for mobile ads and immediate sales!
Remember, Ads help you AMPLIFY what you are already doing with your content and helps you in the Attraction, Lead Capture, and Conversion areas of the Digital Marketing Funnel.

I’m a Indiana Hoosier native where basketball is the top sport. Every team heads to the locker room at halftime to evaluate the first half and create a updated plan for the second half. That plan includes adjustments based on reviewing what worked and what didn't. The “halftime” is a key review point where the game stops, the team pulls away to huddle in the locker room away from the fans, and they come out prepared and ready to succeed in the second half.
That’s what this podcast is all about, taking the time to pull away for bit to evaluate, learn, and set some strategies for your business to succeed in the second half. Join me by subscribing and let me be your “business halftime” to help you find great success going forward!
