I made a post about this on WickedFire, here. Anybody who thinks they can use the suggestions in the thread and apply it accordingly, feel free to do so.
Here’s an example of one of my campaigns on Facebook. This particular campaign wasn’t profitable, but I believed it had potential. This is also a recurring niche for those of you who are familiar with big sporting events and can take advantage.
Alright, I’ve blown through a decent amount of my $250 in Facebook coupons in my account. I have yet to get a SINGLE conversion using Facebook.
I wanted to get some insight on what I’m doing wrong in a particular campaign. Sorry if I’m outing anybody’s niche right here. I tried this as and I knew I would get some conversions for it because people feel strongly about their college football team.
I didn’t get the opportunity to split test because I only threw this offer up the Tuesday before the game.
Here’s my ad:
It is direct linking to the offer which is here: Sportsviews – Sports Social Network
I was targeting males between 16 and 24 years old in Florida and Oklahoma. I had a CTR of 0.07% and was paying and average of $0.28 per click. The payout was $3 per signup and I sent them 66 clicks and didn’t see a single conversion.
I know my targeting could’ve been better using keywords such as Florida Gators and/or Oklahoma Sooners. But I was in a hurry to launch this campaign.
After trying god knows how many campaigns over at facebook I finally found one that was profitable. I have to give a big thanks to Aequitas over at the WickedFire forums. He makes it easy for any affiliate marketer to make some money using facebook ads. He’s literally giving away gold in the Faceboook Ads post over at WickedFire. If you haven’t read it’s multitude of pages, I suggest giving it a read.

I recently have been talking to a rep over at Facebook and he’s been extremely helpful. If you guys need to talk to one yourself, go hit up WickedFire and look for the user Facebook. His name is Keith and he’s awesome.
I also found out from him that if you’ve been in touch previously with ANY other rep, that is your dedicated rep. So in my case I talked to another guy at facebook and he’s the one that is assigned to me. Just a heads up to all you people that have been in touch with a facebook rep.

I found a few template landing pages over on WickedFire and am putting one of them to use on one of my Facebook campaigns. I haven’t had any conversions with it yet, but I also haven’t had many clicks either so I’m not concerned about it, yet.
Well, I spent my free $100 and the $30 I added to my own account and made a whopping $62. At least I made my $30 back plus my domain registration fee and hosting for a couple months. I think I’ll just take a step back and get better at doing PPC on Facebook before I tackle Yahoo again.
