    I have been researching Facebook ads for about 2 weeks now. Finally decided to start up 2 campaigns 2 days ago, one running only one ad set, and the other running two ad sets (testing broad audience vs narrow). I need help understanding whether or not these statistics look good as of right now. I see some engagements going through the FB ads, and the website averages about 20 unique visitors per day (on avg, may be more sometimes). However the problem is that there are no sales. Nobody clicking the Shop Now button, etc. And the only people engaging as in liking the promoted FB posts etc, are people who are outside of US (although I target US only). Do I just let the FB ads sit there and wait until they get optimized?

    Image below are the stats for my 2 campaigns (two different niches)

    These are the 3 total ad sets from the 2 campaigns.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I average $0.03 cost per engagement, so i think you need to adjust maybe. That is my opinion.

    Doesn't looks so good, Last year when I was using Facebook add, I was getting around 130-150 pagelikes per 10-12 $. This month I am gonna restart my Facebook add campaign for some new websites, so I hope it will work as the last time.

    From what I have read, it takes about 5-6 days for FB ads to fully optimize. Once they do, the price will drop dramatically. I've been running the ads for about 2 almost 3 days now. So expecting for costs to come down in the next couple of days fingers crossed. :eek:

    I definitely believe you. How long has your campaign been running?
