    Howdy,

    First time poster here - just wondering, is it worth it to buy a 5k FB account and then use it to directly contact friends with a CPA offer? Will it pay off conversion-wise, or will it normally cost me more than the cost of the account?

    test it?

    your asking if it will pay you back without providing any information, not that it would matter much anyways.

    if it was me, and I was marketing on FB for the first time (which I don't, so take it for what it's worth), I would start with something small, learn how to avoid being banned, and then start buying the more expensive FB accounts (I'm guessing one with 5k friends costs more then one with no friends where you add a few, even if they are just yourself). Start with your little FB account and see what you can do to not get banned and even make a buck or two. Then like everything else, just scale your efforts.

    the problem with buying accounts is that they are often spammed to death so the users are blind to ads. But an old account may give you other privileges..i dunno.

    you'd be better off buying a facebook bot and making your own.

    buying PVA ( phone verified accounts) facebook accounts on the other hand is well worth it. saves you allot of time.

    getting a lot of FB PVAs, a good Facebook bot and good proxies to start your FB marketing, it will be a good start...

    i think its better off buying accounts that havent been spammed with like 1-2k friends, then getting the other 3k friends yourself, as i find its easier starting off with a few friends.

    Excellent info there...

    I have been considering all this for a while and I found that I can just buy PVA's with no friends and basic info and do it manually...

    Today I discovered FFAP... which will cost me the same as someone was offering me a 5k page!

    My aim in 100 accounts with 250k friends total within 1 month. The challenge is set :rolleyes:
