    Depends on product - should say
    For personal experience, it was absolutely zero for our business which sell cars as could not register any incremental volumes
    But, as a feedback - there are couple of our references n friends who have an online store - it turned well to them

    So again - depends on one business model

    Advertising on Facebook gets a bad rap. I've used it so far to attract fans to a Facebook Page, not to convert directly into buyers on a site. I think it's a good tool for that. It cost me from 30 cents to a dollar for a new fan using this approach, depending on the target market and the ad.
    I would go about creating a pro Facebook page first before investing in Facebook ads.

    In Social Media many sites offers you paid marketing but there are very few site who have good numbers of Genuine visitors So its necessary for you to pick right Website for Social Media Paid marketing. And if its question about the leads then its depends but it almost works as i have tried Facebook ad Campaign and really its working, i'm good numbers of Public reaches and good numbers of targeted audience into my Page. So here i can say that you may go for The same.

    Social media ads are on the rise, however you cannot rely on them for promotion of every genre of products. For instance you want to market a machinery or equipment, you cannot display ads on facebook. Social media ads are good enough for only healthcare, lifestyle, and technology products.

    I think social media works when you can complete the sale on the actual social site directly. Its a lot harder to take customers away from the network to complete a transaction. It must be nice for a site like Facebook to charge for advertisements and then send the paid clicks back to its network.

    I cannot be 100% sure, but our experience wasn't so good.
