Social media marketing can be a very effective thing, and at SES San Jose, more than a few people drove this point home during a session called "Turning the Social Web Into Real ROI."  The session focused on Facebook, in particular.

Coverage of the SES San Jose conference continues at WebProNews Videos.  Stay with WebProNews for more notes and videos from the event this week.

Tim Kendall, Facebook‘s director of monetization, began the session by saying that, while a lot of people fixate on the clickthrough rate, this shouldn’t be an issue with customers paying based on the cost per click.  Facebook delivers so many millions of impressions, he argued, that a low clickthrough rate is natural.

Sean Heywood, Managing Partner at the MR Barber Shop & Urban Lounge, then picked up the "go Facebook" thread by sharing a success story.  Facebook ads allow his small business to experiment for as little as $5 per day.  He said that he’s seen a quick, impressive ROI from this, and indeed, that Facebook works better than search for his company.

Performics, a much larger firm, is also fond of Facebook.  Claudia Virgilio, one of its vice presidents, even reported a victory on the clickthrough front.  Apparently the budget for one client’s ad campaign was split equally between Facebook and search, and Facebook delivered 58 percent of impressions and 52 percent of clicks.  What’s more, the ROI ended up being 42 percent higher for Facebook ads versus search ads.

Finally, Rogelio (Ro) Choy, RockYou‘s chief revenue officer, shared some thoughts.  He’s a huge proponent of fan pages versus website marketing, and he stated that the value of fan pages is the multiplier effect.  Things will often spread between friends with similar tastes, increasing clickthrough rates.  To not make the investment in marketing your Facebook fan page is ludicrous, according to Choy.

As for how to promote things, he suggested pointing people to an activity.  Don’t just drive brand exposure in social media; drive brand engagement.

      3) $6.00

      A great Business opportunity that was proven to work on Oprah and 20/20. This is a safe, risk free opportunity to start your own business with just $6.00.


      STEP 1:
      The first thing to do is highlight and SAVE this entire post in word or notebook on your computer so you Can come back to it later. After that, if you are not already a PayPal user you need to go to the PayPal website which is http://www.paypal.com.

      If you want to receive credit card payments from other people, than you will need to sign up for PREMIER or Business account (not just PERSONAL account). This is highly
      recommended to allow others easy payment options. In order to place the initial $6 into your account will have to verify your bank account with PAYPAL (which may take a few days). PAYPAL is 100% secure and used by millions of people worldwide.

      STEP 2:
      Here is where the action occurs. The first thing to do is send a $1.00 payment to each of the 6 e-mail addresses on the current list from your PAYPAL account. To do this quickly and successfully, follow these simple steps:

      1. Login to PayPal and click on the “Send Money” tab near the top of
      the screen

      2. In the “Recipient’s Email” field enter the email address

      3. In the “Amount” field enter “1” (This is your $1.00 payment)

      4. In the “Category” field select “Service” (Keeping it legal)

      5. In the “Subject” field type “EMAIL LIST” and in the “NOTE” field
      enter “PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST”. By doing this, you are
      creating a service and maintaining the legality of the system by
      “paying” for the service.

      6. Finally, click on the “Continue” button to complete the payment.
      Repeat these steps for each of the 6 email addresses. That’s it! By
      sending the $1.00 payment to each address, you are implementing the
      compounding POWER of the system. You will reap what you sow!

      Here is the current e-mail list:

      1) boa420@hotmail.com
      2) cbr_mc@yahoo.com
      3) rl_belen@yahoo.com
      4) abaragus@gmail.com
      5) cathymz@yahoo.com
      6) Dorsey_corey@yahoo.com

      STEP 3:
Now take the #1 e-mail off of the list that you see above (from your saved file), move the other addresses up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc.) and add YOUR email address (the one used for your PayPal
account) as number 6 on the list. This is the only part of the
document that should be changed.
      ** Make sure your email address is
the one you have registered with PayPal **

      STEP 4
      Post your amended article to at least 200 news groups or message boards. Keep in mind there are tens of thousands of groups on line! All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post the more you make- as well as everyone else on the list!
      You will make money geometrically. For example, lets assume everyone receives 5 replies ( a small response rate).

      You send out the MINIMUM 200 postings and receive $5.00.
      Those 5 people post 200 and receive $5.00 each, you receive $25.00
      Those 25 people post 200 and receive $5.00 each , you receive $125.00
      Those 125 post 200 and receive $5.00 each, you receive $625.00
      Those 625 post 200 and receive $5.00 each , you receive $3,125.00
      Those 3125 post 200 and receive $5.00 each , you receive $15,625.00

      Eventually your name will be moved to the top of the list and then dropped from the list
      altogether. But, on the above example you will have made $15,625. Imagine your return with 10, 20 or 30 replies
      With this kind of return, YOU
