    I am new to FB ads and I'm experimenting with different niches. I know capturing emails is essential when it comes to campaigns. Wix seems promising and more importantly its free. Does it hurt sales?

    Thanks?

    Do WordPress. Later on if your site gets bigger and you want to upgrade or add certain features it's a lot easier to do. Customization and plug ins of WordPress really are great. Plus it's free also, just have to pay for hosting.

    It doesn't look professional as they put their own ads on the bottom. I'd be more worried about it getting accepted by FB.

    Create a free wordpress subdomain and you can create many landing pages there without getting your sales hurt. OR Buy a cheap domain like $1 for .com domain from any domain provider. and use there your landing pages and good luck with your sales then.

    I built my new webshop/concept with wix. It's really easy to use but 2 thing are really making me sad at the moment...
    1. You can't add a SSL
    2. The payment options are very limited

    Thanks, also is it better to get page likes first, or should I jump right into creating ad campaigns?

    Do not use Wix or any other free service like a WordPress subdomain for landing pages. If you have money to spend on ad campaigns you have enough to spend on a domain and hosting. Installing WordPress is free and there are landing page builders that are more robust than Wix. To answer your question, I'd imagine that using Wix will hurt sales, yes.

    If you insist on not paying $9 for a domain name I'd recommend you use blogspot.

    I have a domain already with WordPress installed but it isn't related to niche. Would that be better than a free landing page?
    Is it recommended to buy a domain for every niche you experiment with?

    Or do I run a small campaign sending directly to the offer and then once I see potential in it I run another but with a landing page?

    Thanks

    I prefer using wordpress as it has more options than wix + you can upgrade and have your domain on it as well as lots of plugins which is very useful

    Neither is a great option IMO.

    Is it recommended to buy a domain for every niche you experiment with?

    I'd buy a generic domain and create a folder for each new niche.

    Or do I run a small campaign sending directly to the offer and then once I see potential in it I run another but with a landing page?

    You could do that but direct linking isn't always accepted and there are probably many cases where a direct linking campaign isn't profitable but a landing page campaign is. I'd buy a generic domain and set up new folders for each new niche/LP you are going to test. Once one is profitable, maybe buy a new domain related to the niche and see if it helps conversions.

    I would not recommend it. Doesn't cost that much to get a basic hosting plan. You make one sale a month that more than enough covers your hosting cost. Going with a real hosting plan gives you room to grow.

    You expect people to buy when the seller himself is using a free service..

    Do something with the footer then you are good to go

    That 0.01 is for the first month. It's much more after that. I suggest go with Dreamhost. There's a coupon where it only costs $20 and you can host unlimited domains.

    Then just shop around for domains. You can find them for $1-$5.
