    I'm looking to buy $65.00 in Facebook ads in the next few days. I heard a majority might be bots. What are your experiences with FB ads? Please only reply if you have had real experience with them <3

    create a fan page.. and make your fb ads to like your fan page.. don't send them directly to an offer.

    Well I'll be using a new video game release keys niche for PPD. It should be a little more successful then actually selling something.
    I was kind of just wondering how many of them you think would be bots.

    I've read fb ads case studies.. and they said it was easier to get them to like a fan page then convert them on your LP. since they're already on facebook. then you have more chances to convert them later on. but this was also before the reach factor. so i'm not sure if it's still the best way to go. unless you know how to broaden your reach with your status updates.

    That's a good idea. I was just wondering how many of them would be bots, or other peoples experiences if they are bots are not. As mentioned, I will be using PPD and not trying to sell something.

    Of all the companies I have consulted for, I have never advised one to use facebook ads. There are more creative/ cost effective tactics that can be used to generate traffic. It just takes a little more creativity to do it right.

    There are much better ways to advertise than the traditional CPC/ CPM methods, it just takes a little ingenuity.

    Yea that's what I heard. Does anyone know of an alternative? I've never bought ads before.

    I haven't tried creating page and driving traffic to page, but from my experience FB isn't profitable, I tried gaming, spent $80 and made $40 :)

    I've dumped thousands into FB ads and never had success. But, I know someone doing very very well with it, so it's really depends on what you're marketing and how good you are at it.
