Social media is a powerful marketing tool to reach your audience and create an online presence for your brand. However, when it comes to advertising, technology is a prerequisite and has always played a vital part in its dispersal and attainability. From flyers promoting the local shopping mart to pop-up ads appearing on your phone, technology has made advertising much more readily available.
It did not take long for companies to realize the power of utilizing social media platforms to get their brands noticed. In the past several years, space has become more restricted and competitive for brands and businesses to get themselves seen on these platforms.
This led to Facebook offering its “Pay-Per-Click” or PPC campaigns.
