    Hey All !!

    I was hoping to give something back to this awesome community, so I decided to make a thread and answer and help almost all questions and members who need help with Facebook ads. Oh I know how frustrating their ads can be, so I know how you feel.

    A little bit about me: I started doing IM about 2 years ago, I started with SEO (yuck!) oh man how I hate SEO now. Even though I managed to rank a couple of sites but none of them actually lasted with those damn penguin panda updates. So about 1 year ago I started learning about adwords (which was super hard to get low CPC) and Facebook ads. After about 7 months of struggle with Facebook, I finally found my stride and landed a couple of local small business.

    I just want to mention that I do not do any cloaking, redirecting or any of that. I work mainly with white and grey hat niches.
    Also please do not PM your questions, feel free to post it here so everyone can see and gain from it !

    Thanks All !


    Below are a few questions that have been answered in the previous thread:

    Which niches are you running that don't require a cloaker but are successful? Do you always have a landing page or do you also direct link to the offer?

    Do you run a single FB ad account? Are FB ads more targeted than other platforms? If so, how do you display ads to the right people?

    Thanks.

    Any niche is allowed within facebooks advertising guidlines does not need a cloaker.
    Facebook does not allow direct linking.

    Facebook does not allow direct linking.
    NewsFeeds are waaaaaaaaay better . RHS is usually used for branding not for actions.

    I only use one account.
    Fb is targetting people who have shown interest while other PPC platform like adwords are targeting users who are actively searching for something.

    For example if you have a product that noone is searching for then facebook is perfect for you, because they may shown interest to something similar.
    I target via demographics and interests.

    Thanks for that.

    I'm hearing that FB news feed is where all the action is.

    Just another few questions; what would you recommend newbs avoid when starting out? And do you use any third-party software/services to get the most out of your ads?

    For newbies, I highly suggest going with promoted posts because its a few simple targeting options then when they feel comfortable going to ad creation by clicking the ad create button where most people create their ads then finally using power editor to get the most flexibility.

    Mobile newsfeeds are great as well !

    When promoting you niche, you need to:
    1) create a facebook page
    2) research your niche to see who your audience may be
    3) research similar niches to see what they have done before
    4) what makes you better than the rest ? focus on what makes you better and why they should use you.

    keep optimizing your results.
    Goodluck !

    Any niche on FB is successful as long as you put the work in. They ALL work - You just need the proper optimization done in order to be profitable and scale from there.

    do these coupons work worldwide?

    because last time I chatted with the support of fatcow, the guy said it only works in USA.
    after 3 days I talked to another guy, he said they work worldwide.
    I do not really need hosting, the only reason to buy is this coupon, so it has to be sure that I can use it in Europe

    I see fb ads manager recently updated again, the following are the biding options :
    1. Optimize for website clicks.
    2. Optimize for clicks.
    3. Optimize for impressions.
    So which option do you use for bidding now?

    Thanks awaiting your reply.

    I was thinking of creating a new account with ads enabled using vcc, creating a new page, adding a coupon, using all funds, then making my main account admin of that page.

    Is this more effort than its worth? It seems ad coupons are pretty tough to come by recently. Can't seem to find a seller that has them in stock.

    I'm just trying out FB ads, on a micro-budget for gf's artwork store (trying to catch some xmas gift market).

    FB suggests that to drive website clicks CPM is the preferred model, but I thought CPC would give better control of my budget for a new campaign with no idea of CTR yet. But I read that by allowing FB to optimise for website clicks, CPM will give me higher CTR thus improve my quality rating and hence reduce CPC. In your experience is this correct?

    Also what sort of CTR should I expect when compared to adwords (which I have a small amount of experience with). ANy other tips would be greatly appereciated as I am just getting started with FB ads and find it a little harder to get my head around than adwords.
