Reality: The companies are strong enough to get a door and tire the audience’s attention needed to create and curate compelling content.

Expectation: Using paid social automatically states that you’ll have more conversions, including likes, shares, and comments for your respective Facebook page and website.
Reality: Social advertising merely helps facilitate access to more people. It doesn’t change the quality of your message you want to share.
