    After 4 days of testing, I'm now getting about
    average $0.02 per clicks on facebook ads.

    Comparable to PPV in terms of price, but PPV
    is per view while FBads is clicks from interested
    party.

    I ran a very tight keyword campaign in FB.

    Started of with pay per clicks and once I trim the
    keywords to make it targeted I changed to CPM.

    In PPC it was average $0.24 per clicks.

    Have not monitize it yet since I was only testing
    FBads. The clicks are all going to a fan page.

    I was thinking of setting up FBML and placing
    opt-in email and then market stuff through emails.

    Looks like 2010 is going to be the year that I will
    make FBads square off against PPV ;)

    FB ads (especially when marketing a group) has a number of drawbacks. For one, FB is getting ban happy on groups that try to sell to their members (or promote CPA or whatever). It would piss me off to no end to spend money building up a FB group only to have one of their dumbass mods kill the group.

    Also, PPV may not be 'solicitated' but with careful targetting the visitors are DEFINATELY interested. If you know what a user is looking at online, you know what they are interested in unless they somehow ended up on the page accidentally (which, lets be honest, rarely happens with the more popular sites you would want to target anyways).

    PPV also gives you way more flexibility in your creatives (simply because they are huge..).

    Not saying your FB campaign isn't a winner, just saying that PPV could be a nice compliment to it.

    Thanks for the heads up about the banning... I didn't
    realize that they are proactive about that now.

    Nonetheless, if based on the idea of marketing through
    opt-in emails via Static FBML instead of going through
    the fan pages or groups, our accounts will be safe.

    The best part about FBads is the viral effect... spend a bit
    and get a bit more traffic for free :D

    I still do not know which one is better because I have yet
    to properly test both PPV and FBads.

    I agree with what you said about PPV being a nice compliment
    to FBads.

    I hope both do well, because if you learn something from
    the Adwords banning going on now it should be never to
    put all your traffic hope into one basket :p

    I am beginning to wonder if people actually
    read post or just the headlines :lmao:

    The techniques involves getting emails through
    opt-in set up via Static FBML
    .


    Got nothing to do with direct linking affiliate ads or
    promoting whatever the hell you want to promote
    on FB itself.

    You harvest emails, send them quality articles and
    do your promo in the EMAIL... if you promote even
    PORN or BEASTIALITY shite in the Opt-In EMAIL,
    FB can't do anything about that.

    /rant

    Ok, so yeah, FBads seems like a good and cheap way
    to test as alternative traffic source :dancing:
