Joining forces with Facebook is a natural extension of providing additional advertising options to more than 11 million monthly visitors, the majority of whom own or work at a small business.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
Manta.com, the fastest growing business information site on the Internet, has launched an ad credit program that helps Manta members promote their businesses on Facebook through Facebook Ads.
Facebook Ads allow business owners to precisely target their marketing messages to an active audience of 200 million people on Facebook. By using Facebook Ads, businesses gain a new channel for engaging with current customers and driving new business.
"The Manta community will enjoy the visibility that their business can achieve utilizing this new program. It's another benefit for our growing membership," said Pamela Springer, CEO of ECNext, which runs Manta.com. "Joining forces with Facebook is a natural extension of providing additional advertising options to more than 11 million monthly visitors, the majority of whom own or work at a small business."
The benefits of a Manta registration include enabling members to view additional data on companies, to update information on a company and to connect with other members. And now, a registration gives new members an opportunity to try out Facebook Ads for free.
Facebook's mission is to give people the power to make the world more open and connected. Because people are on Facebook to discover and share information through the lens of their friends, Facebook Ads are an ideal solution for advertisers.
With Facebook Ads, Manta members can reach out to a new segment of customers in their target market by delivering relevant ad messages based on people's real interests and connections.
"We believe that Facebook Ads represent a great opportunity for our small business owners," Springer said. "Our goal is to help the Manta member, in this case small business owners, operate more effectively and efficiently."
Manta.com is the trusted authority for finding the hard-to-find information on more than 60 million small and midsize companies worldwide--and their related industries and products. Manta's community of business members interact to contribute and connect with other members in researching and engaging with the most up-to-date database of company profiles around the world.
