    Just started a facebook ads campaign on a page
    which I intend to build into a brand/community.

    So far targeting UK, USA and Australia only and this
    is my results so far which I think is pretty cool. Will be
    interesting to see how this translates into metrics down
    the track.

    Congratulations! Did these 32 clicks convert? If yes, how much did you earn?

    This is a brand new page which I haven't monetized
    just yet. I'm looking at building a solid base with ads
    and hoping that will drive organic growth. Which I will
    then hopefully convert into a bit of business.

    That said, I'm not looking to necessarily profit from this
    experience, rather its a learning one.

    Lovely. How long will you run your ads today? Are you split testing it with other ads?

    Very interesting. I wonder if FB ads will be an alternative for publishers as well, going outside of FB...that'd give adsense a run for their money.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Never heard of "greg davis" will do some digging
    around on him and see if it is "his" supposed method.
    I doubt I would be the first person to think of this.


    Targeting, are you ready? UK, USA and Australia. No
    other countries are being targeted.

    Would love to hear your method. My CTR was 1.4% for my first campaign :O

    Looking for some advice if you are willing to share!

    Travel.

    Before I share my stuff, I want to make sure I can do
    two things. Firstly, I'd like to see if I can duplicate the
    method. If I can't then it's no point trying to share as
    you'll probably just lose money as it could be a fluke. Secondly,
    I'll have a crack at monetizing it, as that will definitely be
    cool.

    Very nice numbers and It's refreshing to read that you're prepared to write this off as a 'test'. So, for that comment I give you a big pat on the back!

    Hope the numbers continue to stack up and you do indeed end up with rewards.

    Good luck OP!
