4 Reasons Why Facebook’s New Buy Button Is a Win for Marketers - AllFacebook

UpTempo Group's curator insight, Today, 2:11 PM

Last week, Facebook was experimenting with a new “buy button” feature, allowing businesses to sell merchandise directly on the social media platform. The button — available on desktop and mobile ads and page posts — is currently limited to a few small and midsized businesses in the U.S.

 

This is an extremely smart business move for Facebook. Facebook users are not able purchase merchandise on their Newsfeed, where small businesses can market to consumers on the biggest social networking website.

 

Many digital marketers wonder how this will affect them. Here is how it can become very beneficial:

 

It’s an easy way to convert your audience where they’re spending time: The buy button eliminates the need to pull Facebook users away from the site to make transactions, enabling higher conversion rates through frictionless purchases.

 

Facebook recognizes that shopping has become more social: 92 percent of today’s consumers say they trust word-of-mouth more than advertising. Recognizing this trend, most retailers and brands have invested in marketing tactics that leverage user-generated content like user photos, ratings and reviews. 

 

It’s a smart tactic for demonstrating Facebook’s return on investment: The direct impact of Facebook marketing on revenue has always been tough to measure. And while there are many methods for proving social media ROI, measuring direct response is the cleanest.
