    Ok guys let me tell you a little story,

    Why is my title saying 1 day no blackhatworld...? well im reading here every day and spend to much time on it, I know so much allready and I need to stop reading and use what I already know, before wanting to do it perfectly... Just start!!!! Stop reading more information your head is full, atleast mine is, Im allready in the IM bussiness for several years, sometimes I have good months then bad months, but my main problem is when thing are going good, I STOP or take it slower, go drinking more often or whatever it is that I do.

    I was with the first few people that had a streaming tv show/movie site, but I was to lazy to keep building on it. I had a super nice facebook page, ready to make money, but to lazy to build a site around it, now its too late again...

    Change your lifestyle, start running every morning at 7:15AM for 45 minutes, take a shower, breakfast, start working, take a sigaret break after 2 hours, etc etc etc. and finish your day with some more running and then shower and a tvshow to finish the day!

    So now about my little succes today, this is not a guide or something like it! I can't bring you to making money, you have to do it yourself....

    Yesterday I started setting up a facebook campaign, I allready did a lott of advertising on facebook, but Im not a Pro at all, I spend in total around $3-4k. But I now know where to becarefull of. If you wanna start FB advertising, well its hard... start with CPC and be ready to lose some money.

    So I started my campaign after I had an idea flashing true my head, I was drinking at a friends place, but I borrowed his computer and stayed on there, for about 6 hours optimizing my campaign, could not let it go, since I knew I had a golden nugget.

    I made about 50 variations and I saw some real nice CTR 0,7% and above! FUCK YEAH!! Second time I have ctr's this high! Below a pictures of my fb stats.

    With clicks comming in for less then a cent. Even with advertisers shaving me like some new zealand sheep. I still made around $500 profit so far, spread over different networks, to find out who's the bad guy :)

    Good Luck guys!

    Hopefully I can do this tommorow again!

    Dude,

    Good Shit! Plus I love how you gave some background. I'm tired of the "I made money threads" with no details.

    Now those who are working with facebook, know that it's possible.

    "SHAVED LIKE A NEW ZEALAND SHEEP!" I love that line!!

    Let's hope it continues tomorrow!

    Real nice job, so you were paying CPM right?

    I know I could make some money with FB ads, just can't seem to find the right CPC. Everything I have tried costs to much.

    Would it be ok for a PM?

    Yes it sounds stupid and everyone is saying the same stuff, but its the only way to go, first educate and learn then put it into practice and find out people do anything for free stuff, hahahah!

    Thanks! Wanted to share something since most of the stuff I use is shared on this forum, but I gave it a big spin with the stuff I did already know.

    Not that im giving a lott of details, but I think it isn't about the numbers but about the mindset, but I don't wanna scream to hard since the money isn't in my bank account yet.

    And facebook yes! there money enough to be made, but I had a lott of luck with my first campaign 1,5 years back, so I knew there was money and everytime I had a shit campaign I blamed it on myself and bad luck.. :)

    Yes I you have a nice CTR, CPM is the way to go, CPC is nice to play it safe, but to be honest with a good ctr even CPC prices go down like crazy as you can see in the pic I bid 0,80CPM but only pay like, Facebook loves HIGH CTR ads. Because they think its quality I guess.

    Try something where people will go for on the streets of something happens or something which people will defend. Also building nice targetted fanpages is nice since you can keep on sending cpa offers offers to them if you play it nice.

    Congrats on your success!

    So you're saying that you've spent 3k-4k before you got started with this campaign right ? This campaign only costs you 180$ to make 500$ profit.

    Good stuff!

    Yep this is very easy to get into the habit of just reading forums and tooling around on the internet instead of putting in the work to make money.

    y

    No I meant I spent 3k-4k overtime to learn the basics and earn some money with facebook. Try a lot of things out, but now I know more and more and need to do less testing then in the beginning. And yes this campaign cost me 180$ to make $500 profit

    Gonna find out the next days :)

    I am sure BHW peeps dont want to hear this because we learn much from here.

    But we only make $$ when we are AWAY from here. made over $10K since Jan 1 and always when I am AWAY from BHW.

    Keep putting up the good fight brother!

    I am just starting out with IM/ affiliate marketing, but I can already see the real money is made from carefully designed ads being run on Facebook or google. Only problem is I am too much of a pussy to be trying that since i'm a noob. I don't want to lose my money, so I think I will stay on bhw and soak up as much knowledge as possible for a while.

    Nicely done, FB campaigns can be a bitch. I lost about $500 first time I did a campaign, second time I put in $1500 and made back a tiny bit over $1500 so wasn't a successful campaign either.

    Also I totally agree with you when you were talking about changing your lifestyle. Drinking all the time isn't all it's cracked out to be, you only have one body and one mind to last your entire life. Might as well take care of it while you still can :)

    Well Excellent Return. you would have earned more money if you have used voucher and saved that money in advertising in facebook.

    Anyway, $300 profit is not bad, and excellent work.
