How to Grow Your SaaS Startup with Facebook Ads

Summary

Most people associate Facebook ads with promoting B2C products. But it can also work surprisingly well in B2B markets – as you’ll hear in this interview with Aaron Zakowski, owner of a SaaS marketing agency focused on using Facebook advertising.

It’s not as easy to promote B2B on Facebook and many SaaS businesses burn through money with very little to show for it. What you need is a tried and tested framework…

3 lessons…

  • B2B People are people as well – they use Facebook just like everyone else.
  • It’s usually more effective to advertise on mobile (cheaper, bigger audience) but that doesn’t mean your software needs to have a mobile version – Aaron has found that B2B often cross converts on desktop after seeing a mobile ad.
  • Photos of people usually works best for creatives. But not standard stock ones. If you can, use photos of real people in your team. But, as with everything in paid ads – test, test, test.
