    In my next campaign, I will try that since this was just a test to find winning campaign, and now that I have found the adcopy, I can monetize with next campaign :)

    ^^ Why are you shouting?? lol

    I've tried FB ads on numerous occasions. Works ok for getting 'Likes' to a Page, but never made anything using a hoplink. I guess because FB users aren't on there to buy, and because of that I don't think I'll continue with them. Would love to hear some success stories though :D

    Big bids :eek:

    I would start with .1 bid and if you still don't get impressions after 1 hour start raising the bid by .01 until you start to get impressions, with time the bid will start to cost less and less. The ideal is .05 or less.

    Your CTR isn't excellent, I'm sure you can improve it testing more ads.
    Higher CTR/Impressions the lower the CPC will go.

    With a .4% CTR you can get .03 or .02 cost per click.

    Good luck :)

    Are you kidding lol, with .1+0.01, it would take days to get impression on ad lol, may be 0.10 + 0.10(hr) would be good :)

    This was my first time of a free coupon I got from facebook :p. Bought 20 coupons yesterday, gonna try this weekend :)

    @athleted123 - That would be my next target, I guess its time to gear up my coding skills to build an autobidder, because I cant check 20 accounts with over 100 adverts on each for next 20 days, it has to be automatic or else it makes no sense.

    Will soon come up with a tool which may be seen in BST thread for PPC guys :D

    Okay, after rinse and repeat I came to following conclusion. Never ever start a campaign with lower epc and put lower budget on all ads, start above 0.30, once you start getting impressions, brush out the low performing ads.

    Low CPC on country like US can only be attained on long run. I am currently on 0.11 CPC but email offers are not converting any good. Still trying.

    Yup I am doing that only, due to my niche, I am trying ads with CPM too so I can compare what is profitable.

    I haven't done a lot of FB PPC but for some reason I've always had the impression that a CTR of 0.8% was minimum or you should scrap the campaign as it's not doing well enough. Or is it 0.08%?
