    only if you can find a way to target people who own pools....thats the trcik with FB ads...finding the "likes" and "interests" that coincide with your niche. and if its a local business you would need to target your immediate area also which i do not think you can do in FB.

    adwords might be a better solution.

    That's true. I'm trying to think how I could do it. Oh you can't do by location? Hmm... Adwords will work, I just need to figure out how to do it! Haha, I'm more familiar with SEO.

    Yea, but the thing is that local advertising is so cheap, you can reach all the FBers within say 25 miles of your local area repeatedly an not spend $20 per day advertising. Check me out at 3w.businessfanpage (dot) net

    I'll design you up something real proper.

    SEO and google maps might be more what you're after.

    Have you claim Google Places for the business?

    You will rank easily for local terms.
