    Hi guys!

    I have a question about the facebook reach number... whenever I put US/UK/Canada/Australia, I get 90-200 reaches for $1, which really sucks, so I never target them... I target high reach countries such as Philippines/India/etc... and 95% of my visitors are from the Philippines. (And by high number of reaches, I mean 15k-22k for only $1) The only bad thing, that they never click on ads and I get nothing from them.

    So I was wondering, how do you guys target US/UK/Canada/Australia? I don't believe you spend $100+ only to reach 2000-3000 of them... Is there something I'm missing?

    Thanks!

    what exactly you use?
    PPC or pay per 1000 views?

    it can happen that your post is not interesting at all for these people or you can create your target by only uploading those of your competitors fans using a software like socialleadfox

    That's because the cost per click is partly determined by the clickthrough rate; you should really check out this video:

    How are all the popular movies/tv shows not interesting to these countries? Harry potter, Guardians of the galaxy, The walking dead, etc...

    I watched the video, the guy is right, but he didn't solve the problem he mentions...

    Thanks so much, man! Your guide was very helpful. I will give it a try! (Now I finally understand why people want to scrape IDs from facebook...)
    Sad part that I'm going to scrape manually since I don't have the money to invest on ULead.

    No advertisers are going to pay for india traffic that's why it is so cheap. The US/UK/Canada etc. are the more expensive ones. try like $50 a day but let it go for a couple days. Let it monetize and it could monetize to a price your comfortable with. You need to spend money to make money sometimes. If it was easy then everyone would be doing it.

    Am into Facebook advertising and sincerely, there are "top countries" which you can't target, if you don't have the money. Except your post go viral, getting traffic from Facebook ads is cost and might ruin you if you don't follow the advise of a pro.

    That's because those are english shows made for US, CA, UK and other countries where the first language is english.

    Just because a show is popular in your local country doesn't mean it will be popular in parts of the world.

    @brothers13 - I tried yesterday to send to the US WITHOUT putting anything in the interest, and it was "reach 12k-22k" and I was pumped! So I put $2 on it to test the traffic... but unfortunately these $2 only got me 5 clicks on my link to my website, and my $2 ended... seriously? $2 for 5 clicks when the reach was 12k-22k? I still would not believe someone would actually do such thing.
    (I used ads by impressions)

    @sbndnb - Free of charge? :D :)

    @Paper-boy - That's exactly my point... These shows are meant for the first language english speakers such as US/UK/Australia/etc... so why is my reach 90-200 when I put the Movies/Tv shows in the interest? And when I put non-english speakers countries with the same interests, I get 12k-20k reaches... I don't know, after 2-3 weeks of testing this facebook ads, I still don't understand how it works... It just doesn't make sense to me.

    Excuse me if I understood you wrong.
