    Hi everyone,

    I've been trying to do some CPA with PPC these last few days (without success), I used adcenter and adwords.
    I've find it annoying that the average CPC from G keyword tools is always much less than what I'll have to pay at the end and much more than what I'll get with my adsense site haha :)

    Anyway, I've heard a lot about FB and 7search, does anyone have more success with adword/adcenter than these ?
    I've also found it quite hard to get a good CTR on email submit since 95% are for trademark gift/coupon, and with adword CPC it's definitely not helping.

    Should I consider using only adword/adcenter/fb voucher to run my ads and then be able to bid higher for less money or do you think a successful PPC campaign should work without ?

    Thanks to enlighten me on those CPA newbie questions :D

    I tried FB+Cpa and failed, used 50$ and made back 8$.
    I did a lot of research before submitting my ads.

    Use one of your website URL and redirect them directly or indirectly to the CPA offer, but maybe that's not allowed and they'll ban me ;)

    CPC is a serious field. Try FB And have a budget of $500 at least. The budget you have put into it can be considered as "testing" but i am sure you learned from that failure. Failure after failure until you get a profitable campaign and then scale the shit of it.
    Good luck!

    I have been trying CPA for the last month as well and still can't find a profitable match. This is driving me insane. :(

    Let me tell you something about FB.

    The amount of targeting you can do for some FB ads is ridiculous. The Custom Audiences feature is great, as you can target demographics by country, age, gender and interests.

    Here's the best part though. If you've been building an email list (and if not, why haven't you), import those emails into facebook custom audiences. Now, not every email will be registered with facebook, but a surprisingly high number (reports of 50-70%) of emails submitted to a list on your site will be the same as the email registered with facebook.

    Consider this, you're now targetting people who have visited your site, were interested enough to leave an email, and may have or may in the future fulfill your CPA. You can use Custom Audiences to filter this group even further and before you know it, you have an extremely targeted Facebook ad, which will ultimately reduce spend and potentially increase your conversion rates.
