Facebook remains number 1 as a social media marketing platform for e-commerce. With almost 2 billion users per day, there is a strong domestic and global audience of consumers ready to discover and engage with your brand if your product and content is on point. There are several types of content marketing tricks to help you stand out, and some Facebook Ads tips to ensure your digital marketing dollars are spent effectively.

Facebook users are already accustomed to sharing giveaway posts unlike most other platforms and they’ll feel rewarded as a follower of your page. Canva is a good free design tool to create images and GIFs perfect for giveaways and exclusive offers content.
