    I launched my First Ad campaign for a Teespring T-shirt that I have designed . I have a few questions on how I should optimize it for better results.
    A bit info about my niche. I've designed the T-shirt for Pot-smokers in 20-30 age bracket living in US . The objective of the campaign is to send people to the buying page and have them buy the T-shirt.

    My budget is $50 . I've set Daily Spend budget to $5 for a period of 7 days of which $4 was already spent today. I got 4 clicks to my site so far which means each click cost me about $1 . I found out later that I have the option to set the amount I want to pay per click. So here is my first question - Should I let Facebook decide the price or should I price it myself ? If I price it myself what should be the amount I pay for maximum leads ? I have currently set it to $0.08/click.

    I've targeted my audience by using pretty generic terms such as marijuana lovers/legalize marijuana etc . I wanted to make my targeting more specific by adding a few pages in the Interest section. Although, Facebook does not give me the option to select those pages even though they are pretty big (Example: The stoners cookbook. ) Here is the second question-Should I upload custom audience as I feel I am unable to properly target the people in my niche ? Is there a way to scrape likers of a particular page?

    There is option called Online Spenders in the behaviour section. Will selecting this option help me separate buyers from the non buyers ? Also,which should I select Online Spenders(Active) or Online Spenders (Engaged)

    Also,I'd appriciate any other suggestion that you may have. Looking forward to your insights
    Thank you :)

    Hi There,

    Im only after launching my very first split test on fb.

    I have got anywhere from a 10% to 20% CTR with a CPC of 1c , spent 6euro to date, directed 700 people to my site and got 200 fb likes in less the 48hrs.

    I scraped my uids for my niche (50000) and uploaded them along with my campaign

    Again my very first attempt at any PPC, complete I.M Virgin
