    Created a FB ad account. Set up an ad, targeted it, set up a budget etc. Got the ad approved but nothing. No impressions in 24 hours at all.
    Trying to get clicks / traffic to my landing page website. Nothing I've tried gets the ad to show to anyone. Starting to think FB ads are a load of garbage.

    Tried CPC and CPM. Tried varing the costs from middle of the reccomended CPC and CPM and even over the recommended CPC and CPM bids and nothing. Almost 2 days wasted so far. FB no help either.

    Thanks.

    I've been trying that all night even taking it well above the recommended CPC / CPM and still nothing.
    If I carry on I'll be paying well over £1 per click or well over £3 - 4 per 1000 impressions.

    The offer I'm promoting only converts £4 at best per sign up. Seems the prices facebook wants me to put in are extremely over inflated for my expected returns.

    Where's all these £0.20 CPC facebook ads I've read about people getting?

    Try deleting the campaign and setting it up again.

    I've done away with the campaign completely and created a new one for Boost Post using the power editor.
    Set my audience and location which narrowed it down to around 8 Million Potentials but only around 12,000 online per day. Set daily budget to £3.50 per day and to show over 3 days. Optimised for post engagement with most post impressions for the best price enabled.

    The advert was approved about half hour ago. As of yet, no impressions, interractions etc.

    EDIT: Finally got one to kick off..... Just out of the blue started spewing out stats. Fingers crossed the ad does what it's designed to do.
