Factors for the price determination
The price of advertising (whether social media or search engine) is calculated based on supply and demand. The more users are relevant for a certain industry, the more expensive the price, the more competitors from a certain industry are active in a certain keyword or in a certain group, the more expensive the price. Conversely, keywords and target groups with less competition cost less.
