Facebook Driving school marketing update

I have now completed my driving school advertising campaign on facebook, and the results weren't very encouraging for my niche of business.

The driving instructor adverts to promote a page of mine ran for almost 3 weeks, and the results are as follows.

1. Stuck to my budget which is good.

2. Ad had over 51,041 impressions, with only 22 clicks which is a very poor click through rate considering it was targeted at UK members who said they were interested in driving lessons. It seems to me that a lot of peope on there just like to hang out, post pictures and while away time!

3. This leads me to believe that facebook is not a good place to advertise on as a driving school owner. If you have had better success using a CPC marketing campaign on facebook, I would love to hear your experience.

4. I did manage to reach my target, but only 5 of the subscribers were a direct result of my ads.

I will be trying driving school advertising on google later on in the year which seems to have a more targeted audience via Adwords, but might be a little more expensive.

  1. Interesting to see your experience with Facebook. It was something I considered earlier this year. I agree that it's probably not the best place to advertise. Too much other stuff going on!
