In a word, "it depends." There is no equation/solution that guarantees X likes and Y followers for spending $Z.

It depends on the perceived value of your page (people decide on their own to like or follow your page). It depends on how you spend $100. It depends on how well you target your campaign(s).

You could easily spend $100 (or even $1,000) and end up with 0 likes and 0 followers. You could also get thousands of likes and followers without spending even $1.

A better question to ask is what you plan to do to leverage any likes/followers you get to make sure you're actually getting value for the money you spend to get those likes/followers. Someone could easily create 100 fake user accounts and give you 100 likes and followers for $100. But those accounts will never do anything more for your page, giving you no real value for the money you spent.

If your customers use Facebook and Instagram, absolulutely worth your spendings but they use Google searchs, maps etc. search ads will be more effective.

It all depends on the target audience. If your selected audience is huge then you get more benefit from the Facebook promotion.

I have seen both in Facebook - campaigns that do well and those that don't bring results. Read the FB suggestions carefully, try to be as precise as possible in defining your audience.

I tinkered for a while and now spend $30 au per day and it brings in 2,000 new likes. They predicted more likes/followers for that spend but to be honest Iím more than happy.

The final analysis will be not "likes" but "conversions" or "biz". Spend your money as you see fit ... and if "likes" is the target, then you got your dollar's worth. If you didn't make a sale, well, that's a different kettle of fish.

Meanwhile, bear in mind that FB is about FB first, you second. If that is okay, then yes, expenditures can have some benefit!

I agree with the above. I also think itís worthless getting a bunch of likes if thereís no reason to stay. You have to give them a reason to like the page and want to be a part of the community/group.

FB is definitely about FB first and if you do get 100 new likes (or whatever), remember that not all of them are going to see your posts in their feed.

Going slightly off topic, I think itís worthwhile pursuing other ways to get info about your site/business to people. Search engines, social media, newsletters, push notifications. We are all at the mercy of algorithm changes that can hit unannounced and seriously impact traffic. Thatís not just Google but social media too.

It depends upon the
1. Ad type ( which type of add you are running)
2. Budget - one is Daily Budget and Second is Life Time Budget.
3. Bid Strategy

It's hard to answer if it's worth or not. In some cases 10 followers can mean and have more important impact than 100 followers. So you should compare and count by yourself how much you can spend for advertising that the goal would be worth the money you spent.

It depends on the business you do. Mostly facebook spends less compared to AdWords. Even results will also vary accordingly.
