How Can a Car Dealer Target Its Own Customers in Facebook

Facebook has always been the leader in being able to target potential customers because of their ability to know just about everything about you. Where Google Adwords is able to target by keyword in the search results, Facebook has been able to dive deeper.

Beyond just being able to target by location, age, sex, and interests, you can take your targeting to the next level by only showing your ads to customers that have purchased from you before.
