    Facebook, the little country with the 800 million users has taught me some lessons the pass couple days that I did not learn in almost a lifetime. So after 336 sign ups and spending just $35. I can tell people that facebook is a science. If you know what you are doing, you can master it.

    On June 7, 2012 I tried a small ad, the thing did not gather a single sign up. I spend $10 and just had a couple clicks. I was frustrated. I went into research. Sunday, I decided to try again. This time, I would do a couple things differently and I create a second ad and I was blown away. Not only the rate of sign ups but the science.

    So I was targeting a simple niche. I loaded a video on an optimize press and then use the power of fb to niche the marketing. I was floored when I noticed that in the first hour, I was getting real sign ups. Now I did not have a shopping cart on the landing page. It was an optin since I will be teaching a series then opening a shopping cart. But to get that crowd was almost unbelievable.

    The scared part of me said, you getting spam, so I actually went into the aweber account and start looking at the names, and emails to verify. Then as if I was crazy, I went to another of my fb fan pages, put another $35 spending to see who would like the page and today if you look at it, you will see I have 297 likes almost all was from the $35. Now I have tried some SEO services, link wheel and backlinking before but they never improved anything, I never even see the results of the investment. so now with this piece of experiment on FB, I used my copywriting skills and I can say to anyone with doubts, keep plugging away. Success will come soon.

    I think people who don't know how to set up a campaign get frustrated easily with crowds, you can get people to sign up for anything you set up a good strategy. I might not close all 336 but with 6 people already asking me for the product already, I have already made more than 300% my investment. I sell a product for $297 and the investment was worth every minute.

    @Justalady, I changed the ad and made it compelling. Then I went to the right niche. that's the science part. In fact, according to aweber, I had 510 signups, but only 336 hit the submit button the right way. I dont always believe them, but I actually took ppl name and email and run it on fb to see that they are human and not machines. The art to this thing is copy writing, you need to master that to succeed.

    Your math isn't consistent but the concept is very valid and with the right offers very profitable. The last large fb campaign I did was to get very specifically selected subscribers for a drip campaign...I mean email newsletter, and after social connections my gross cost per subscriber was about 35 cents, and my average revenue per subscriber was about $1.50.

    Ok. Now I will try to respond as best as I can, to as much as I can.

    First off, the Optimize press allows you to easily embed a video into a sales page or squeeze pages. If you know what to bid on and who to target, you dont have to pay expensive for a click. I was paying about .5-8cents per click. As I said, you have to drill down to a small niche that got a passion. Then to the person who ask about my research, I read a bunch of things, I can't say is one thing I read that did it. When I read the first set of things about fb ads, I was frustrated but pm me and I can give some specifics.

    then to the person on the info product, my product is a course, it cost about $35 to produce a piece. It's a couple cds, a dvd and modules. The module are online. So my margins are good. Even if you consider my production and editing cost to $60-$90, the profit margin is still good.

    People in a unique niche are very targeted, I think the biggest thing is the copy writing because I literally changed my first ad to make it actionable.

    Hope that give some help. PM me for anything else...because I cannot keep up with this thread.

    Regards :)

    honestly whats the point of saying all this without giving us screen shots of your exact method.

    for one it proves to us your method is legit

    second it lets us know what to do.

    if you cant supply quality content your just bragging and boasting. Give to the community bro. dont show off your dick.
