    Haha....catchy title huh?

    Anyway, I bought into all the hype and so many of the recent courses talking about so many making BANK posting CPA offers on Facebook.....

    After a week and posting like 10 different offers, I can tell you that it is not all that it is cracked up to be. I am sure some lucky few are still making coin but for the most part...there is so much competition on many offers that the minimum suggested bids to even get some impressions are like 2 to 3 times the average epc's for the offers?

    There are litterally like 6 people (just in my area) promoting the one page lead submit for the Criminal Justice Schools ..."Now Hiring Cops" "SWAT Members Needed Now" .....lol

    The good ole "Cartoon Yourself" from MyWebFace and Zwinky have min bids of like twice the average epc's just to get some impressions.

    It seems to me, no matter how I tweak the demographics targeting, the minimum bids just keep rising and if I don't meet them, I don't even see any impressions at all

    Obviously, the only other thing I can try is some really "out of the box" offers which are not yet oversaturated on Facebook....but I think PPC and Media Buying are a way better use of my time at this point.

    Not sure how anyone is really making bank based on my experience but I must be missing something??

    Any thoughts or ideas as to what I am missing?...

    Well I can tell you from looking everyday....most of the ads in my area anyway have gone local and are for Dr.'s and local events and other things different from the traditional CPA offers....which is not how it always was...

    As I said, Im sure its still being done successfully....but it is also saturated and competitive as hell and as soon as you have any success with something, people copy you and run the offer into the ground pretty quickly

    BTW...I'm also talking about doing FB all white hat....I know this is BHW but I am just saying....I'm not doing any BH stuff with FB...just straight up running offers and trying to profit 100% WH....

    Facebook ads are very powerful. Internet marketing is always a constant strive to change, it's just the name of the game. Expect that if you're pushing CPA you'll have competition. There is more than just CPA that you can profit off of with Facebook ads.

    Just think, why would they be bidding "twice the average EPC (which is often inaccurate as it's networkwide I'm assuming)" if they were operating at a loss? See what they're doing, whether it be go through a LP or direct linking, and do it better. No one runs shit if it's not making the money.

    I've been making quite alot from selling affiliate products on FB for the last 2 weeks. Im sure if i can get people to actually get their cards out and buy things, it shouldnt be too difficult to get them to sign free offers. Im going to try CPA with FB soon, i just need to get acepted first LOL

    Oh/. and my suggestion. Dont waste your time or money on ads on facebook. You can get much more targeted traffic just by posting in groups etc.

    Ha its all about your approach dude, I pull in about $40 a day just with two facebook accounts posting once a day.

    When things are not working for you, often times it is your approach on the subject. Are you twisting the method etc... Following it by the book in most cases will not get you far, it will simply give you an example.
