    Hi Guys,

    welcome to my CPI + FB ADs journey that I want to share with you guys. I have been mainly reading the last few month and feel like I need to give back :)

    I discovered this "whitehadish" method a few months ago in my own newsfeed, which is basically just running FB ADs (with creative postings) to CPI offers, not using the FB app promotion program, but the regular fb program, which is cheaper and allows abitrage. I have been doing this the past 4 months (next to my day job 4-5h / day) and got really lucky with one super ROI+ campaign, where I made some good $$$. The good thing about this method is that it seems fairly whithad, at least me or one other guy i know who ran this, never lost an account, so FB doesn't care too much.

    I haven't seen many people doing this or talking about it, so I am gonna share my journey here. I am also planning to start a skype mastermind group for CPI + Facebook. PM me if you are interested.

    Here is where I stand after roughly 4 month:
    - 250 + Campaigns started
    - 9 were positive, the rest lost money
    - FB Spend: about 9k at this point
    - Return: 16 k (75% from 1 app campaign though)

    I am doing AM full time now (since november) and see how far I can scale this. My goal is 1k / day in profits.. so I will keep you posted here and also share some insights on how I am doing this. I will try to post every day!

    Good luck OP. Do you mind sharing with us how much money did you spend until you start seeing positive results?

    I got very lucky in the start and was positive after about 30$ spend on my third campaign and made a couple hundred $ with a 150% ROI + campaign.. however after this I realized that I was quite lucky the hard way.. next 20-30 campaigns failed. However since the CPI is usually only 1.5-3.5 $ and I spend max 3 times the lead price, you can test most campaigns with 5-8$ spend.

    You can't really test a campaign with less than 100$, let alone 5$.
    If you're short on money the least is 1 campaign - 10 different creatives - 5$ each a day for 7 days= 350$

    Seems an interesting thread to follow along. I would appreciate if you could share your method to "Create Ad copy" for fb ads. As you mentioned, you did 250+ campaigns, do you write your copy manually OR you have some tool to spy on Other people's ads? Mind to share?

    @adbuzz: PM me for networks, don't wanna drop any names here..
    @ppaizon217: Yes and no.. if you run pops or display I agree, but on facebook you don't need so many variations and if i tired 2-3 targeting and didn't get a conversion I move on.

    So basically the method I am using, is more about creating really compelling ads that are not perceived as ads. So I create fanapges that look like "real people" and create ads that look like your buddy could have post this with a soft CTA at the end. I am gonna uplaod an example here. I have been mainly focusing on gaming apps and cut real gameplay videos together. So I spend sometimes 2-3 h on creating one "compelling" posting. Therefore its very different than pops or such, where you rip and copy landers and try a million sources and countries. This method is more about creativity, copy writing and finding extremely good video content.
