    I'm sure this is a nooby question but I've only just started a CPA campaign and haven't used Facebook ads before either, anyway under the connections section when you create a new facebook ad, there's an option to target people who aren't connected to your page and below it is a text box that says your page, group or whatever, but every time I try to enter my page name in there the text disappears, I even tried entering the URL but still nothing, anyone know why this might be? Thanks for any help in advance

    I can't help with your issue, but I'd love to hear results of your CPA campaign with Facebook. Been recently considering doing one myself.

    No problem, I think I have a good method, as I've got a lot of hits on my pages from ads, but they they all get blocked after 15 minutes or less, to be honest I don't really have a good knowledge of proxies and that's what's holding me back at the moment, anyway I'd be happy to help you out when I get a good campaign going, any idea what sort of campaign you're going to create?

    To be honest not yet. I have so many other things I need to work on first it's not even funny. I just got my publishing rights back on my FB page of >mil fans, so I'm just beginning basically.

    While your on that page, open another tab of your facebook page copy the page name then paste it into the box, a drop down menu should appear click the page in the drop down menu and it will automatically enter it in the tab.
