    Hey there, is facebook ads considered PPC? (if it does, i wonder why there's no a sub forum for it)anyway, I'm thinking about trying it in order to bring traffic to some website of mine, but when I went to facebook's advertising section, i see that the first step is to "create a facebook page".I have no interest in doing so as i want to send traffic to my site, can someone elaborate me the concept of facebook ads, is it meant only for people with facebook pages??

    When you create your ad you enter the URL you want to send the visitors to, either a FB page, or your own website.

    Judging from what is currently running for me, it's not... There is a cost for the impressions too (although it is negligible)..

    It is a form of PPC.You don't need a FB page to run it.It is required if you want your ad to show in the news feed.Just select the External Website option for targeting traffic to your website..

    you can make your way up on facebook ads with only vouchers from fiverr
    its a little tricky tho, you have to buy vcc on fiverr aswell to create new accounts
    and i dont even know how to pass the phone verification , i havent done it in months, but you can try

    facebook ads you can link to facebook pages or apps within facebook
    or you can llink to a external website, you cannot direct link to cpa offers o any other offer as an affiliate because they will ban your ass, hope it helps
    Cheers

    I want to use only one voucher, just to see what it is like (if I find facebook ads good for me, I'll use my CC)
    I can link to an external website that carries in it an affiliate link though, right?

    Yes it can be PPC but I think there are also some other options.

    does it mean I can apply the voucher after I open my account? is there a time limit for applying it? I remember that in adwords it used to be around 14 days.

    mmm so I didn't understand how do they differentiate whether your campaign is funded from real money or by a voucher, if you must apply it when you open the account....?

    Talk to him regarding FB coupons
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/199158-abuhanifa.html

    He has a method where he can generates hundreds of them that work perfectly also for veteran FB accounts.
    * I have tried his coupons many times, never had any issues

    You don't need a page to advertise in facebook. Just use your website url and advertise in facebook. That's the best solution.

    a big online ad agency posted a stat lately that something like people are 28x more likely to click on a sponsored post in the news feed (tied to a FB page) so might want to look at that over the sidebar ads

    you can still work in an external url
