    damn thats good, i have a really low ctr, but i don't target my ads, i pretty much leave them on full exposure, as i doubt anyone would click an ad that they were not interested in, on facebook especially. reperoonied up.

    Thanks for sharing. The ctr is high because facebook "optimized" it by placing it towards the top of the page. Think about it. If an ad is "hidden" like at the bottom. Then it's ctr is low. But you are also bidding lower cpm. So getting high ctr does not mean it's most cost efficient, it just means more people click it given the same impression because you are paying higher price for that position. You need to test whether if you manual bid would be more cost effective.

    Well actually if you target your demo just right and you have the "right" ad then by using optimized you can get $0.01 clicks.... just check out the link in the original OP.

    Luke had 24% CTR..... regardless if he was bidding $1 CPM he was getting HELLA cheap clicks from the US. You would not be able to get cheap clicks like that with manual bidding.

    Kinda surprised FB approved an ad run titled "sexy hot." They are usually quite the sticklers.

    Try out Automatic Optimized Bidding.

    You will see 2%+ CTR if your ad has a good image and you have targeted the demographic correctly.


    Let us know how it goes :)

    Yes man, will try that in a few niches and post results. It's just that I never thought that it could work but with a 2% CTR it is nice. The CPC will go down by a lot from that then.

    Yeah, according to Luke from Peerfly its best to keep the budget low for like 1 week while it optimizes the campaign for you then up the daily budget if you are happy with the CTR and avg. CPC.

    Luke is a complete douche, his blog is full of promo posts. Don't waste your time.
    You can also see 7search blog post there, he says that its profitable, lol

    Not a big fan of peerfly or Luke but that 7search post was one of my first profitable attempts at CPA. Didn't make much as 7search is limited but it make enough to buy GSA SER and C Breaker. Thanks Luke! It's all in the twist ;)

    Nice one about videos. Witht those cpc stats you can get some hella cheap real views with likes and comments! No services needed... As long as your video don't suck eggs.
