    I want to run an ad on Facebook

    - $20/Day
    - CPC
    - Targeted: Country, Age, Sex & Relationship

    I check the CPC and this is what it gives me...

    ... What if I MAX BID is like... $0.08 or something? What happens then?

    Any advice?

    Also, AdWords gave me $100 card to use.
    Does Facebook do the same thing? Or no?

    Depends on whether or not other advertisers are outbidding you. I've easily been able to get some $0.05 clicks before but it doesn't always last forever.

    A common technique would be to lowball it & slowly raise it up a few cents whenever you don't get clicks for a span of 12 - 24 hours.

    So... Just to make sure... If I get 0 clicks in 24 hours, I should raise it up couple of cents?

    What is the winning formula?

    $0.08/click, and a very high CTR?
    My site has a $7/month subscription...

    So if its $1.00/click, 1 in 7 need to subscribe, or I'm loosing money...

    $0.50/click, I need 1 in 18 to sign up
    $0.25/click, I need 1 in 32 to sign up
    0.12/click, I need 1 in 64 to sign up

    Hmm....

    Hmm...

    Don't work it out on $7. Enless 100% of members cancel within 30 days?

    Work out the average amount of months users subscribe, than you have a figure to work out the max you can spend and min conversion to be able to make bank from FB ads.

    F*ck $1 a click.

    Try $0.10 - $0.30

    There suggested bids are always wrong, but i usually leave as so i can get enough impressions and receive that first click. Then i lower it.

    Yeah... I'll probably start at $0.01, wait 24 hours, if no responds then move to $0.10, etc.

    I'm still debating weather I should do the subscription at $7 or $9.97... I think on the site I will say $7, but when they'll go on PayPal (or whatever) to checkout, it'll be $9.97, and I hope that people will go like, "$2... whatever".

    And if not... then I'll test split other stuff
