Facebook Advertising - Part 2

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 1:58pm Saturday 03 January 2009    Print Article

Following on from my previous post on Facebook Advertising Part 1 I have collected a number of adverts that are currently showing on Facebook related to recruitment. These are only a small example of adverts targeting my profile.

As you can see, attaching an image to the advert is very effective.

But it hasn't taken long for a number of scam adverts to appear on the site. The attached image on the right, the role looks too good to be true. It redirects you to a ebook which you have to purchase to find out how to make money.

Sounds a bit like the job adverts apearing on SEEK

Have you seen any other interesting examples of social recruitment advertising? I would be keen to hear from you.

We're going to give Facebook a try in 2009. We're a regional jobs board, so I expect that we'll be able to get fairly targeted results by only displaying ads in our geographical area (Canberra and surrounds). I think it would be tougher to get an ROI on a national scale.

I have noticed that Six Figures has been doing a lot of Facebook advertising - their ads have been ubiquitous every time I have been on Facebook. Kelly Magowan from Six Figures told me that they're getting a good return from their campaign, so we'll give it a go too.

If you see any recruitment related adverts worth sharing, feel free to email them to me.

Facebook ads are said to have pinpoint accuracy when targeting certain demographics.

Another example of a company using facebook's diy advertising platform.

Here is another "Get Rich Quick" scheme. Dodgy.

Not sure how to post a picture on here, but I have over 100 FB ad examples to share (that we used for our clients).

Hi Vikram,

Great, love to see some examples from Canada. I will send you an email now. Cheers. Thomas
