I hope you'll weigh in here. And anybody else who has experience in Facebook advertising and has gotten real results.

Nobody wants to throw money away.

I am helping my son promote a concert that he will have in a very specific niche - neo-classical piano.

Specific niche, narrow location, limited time = Facebook Ads possibility?

I am looking for some advice on how best to use them.

Help!?

I'm not big on facebook ads. I just don't trust them. But, hey, that's just me, so ignore my caution.

This sounds like a great place for an active twitter account and a local hashtag.

I used Facebook to promote a band I played in. After spending $100 per gig announcement, exposure (according to Facebook) was around 2,000 to 3,000 additional people.
We never discovered anyone who attended the concert by seeing the FB event, with the exception of our friends that were already following us.
Here is something we know works: have some 4-ups (on 8-1/2 X 11) advertisements and pass out on windshields in a 2-block radius. Printing on your own printer and then taking to Kinko's to have them cut (around $4 total). You can also target areas where your target clientele hang out.

In short, I found using Facebook to get new customers doesn't work with bands or Second Amendment gatherings.

It takes me years to grow my Facebook fan page to 78 people.
