    I'm going to have a journey with my website (Opencart) and get paid traffic from FB. This is my first time I used paid traffic with FB (website clicks)
    My website is build before in the past weeks and have a responsive theme (not fully functional yet)
    My goal is to reach a profit of at least 50$ per day.

    My campaign is for website clicks (to my product page) mobile/tablet/right side only. Age of 35-55 and female as my ads are made for woman.

    Few days ago I have tested a small campaign after choosing the best picture. This campaign was for 2 days only.
    Results on FB:
    Clicks: 1376
    Views 52,300
    CPC: 0,015$
    CTR: 4,05%
    Total spend: 21,65$
    170likes on the add
    27 replies


    Website: 5 orders
    Profit: 27$
    Netto profit 5,35$
    5 registered users


    My first experience with this and I was pretty satisfied. wanted to try another campaign but make better pictures and text.

    So yesterday I have tested 5 pictures from one of my products which I sell on my website. Today I have choose the best picture to use for my campaign.

    My stats for this picture are until now:
    FB stats
    Clicks: 236
    Views: 7000
    CTR:5,33%
    CPC: 0.01. My other pictures had a CPC of 0,02/0,03. I choose this one because it has a very low CPC of less than 0,01
    Spend so far: 2.41$
    51 likes on the add
    4 replies

    Website: 1 order
    Profit: 13$
    Netto: 10,50$

    Work what I will be doing the next few days is fixing my website. It is still very basic and not very professional. However it is ranking on Google on the first page but this keyword is not very high on demand. So I rely on traffic from mostly Facebook.

    I keep this thread updated with my journey. Any advice or questions welcome. Thanks!

    You setup opencart yourself or asked someone to do it?

    Good luck!

    I did 75% it for myself and Hired a person on ODESK to do the other 25%. Mostly adding products and small layout changes and fixing errors.
    Total spend on the website is around 60$ and my free time around 20 hours.

    I'm doing dropshipping but mention the shipping times very well on my website. Actually I do ship it to my house then forward it.

    Do you using Power Editor to minimize the CPC cost ?

    No I'm using the normal way to create a campaign however I have filtered out some ways which gets the CTR low. Only mobile/tablet has a high CTR in my experience the same as the age. (35+). As I checked in my add the age 55-64 has 6.7%CTR.

    Look into Multi Product , just launched by Facebook. If you are promoting a variety of products. This will prove extremely beneficial.

    Wow nice results! People can say whatever they want, but paid traffic IS efficient, if you know how to set it up.

    Good luck on your journey, it looks like it's not gonna take long for you to achieve that $50 a day.

    I'm targeting an Asian country. And indeed cellphone accessories.
