    A lot of ads i see on facebook have been designed to make them look like they are part of the facebook website and not an actual ad. I see lots of "You have 3 Messages" ads, and by the looks of it they seem to work, even if they are kind of tricking people to click them.

    Yeah don't treat Facebook Ads like AdWords. You need to be promoting a Facebook page and getting people to "Like" it. Develop a following and thats where you will make your money, by having permission to communicate with them for free in future.

    I have been an FB user for years and I have never once been lured to click a single ad. I think it may be because the page is so full of other detail that I dont even notice the ads...

    I might be wrong but i dont think ads are too viable there.

    Oh yes, we market on Facebook all the time. People think it's expensive, but when you really get down to it you are generally paying about $1.50 - $2.00 per click. Which isn't bad considering the amount of views and likes your pages or websites will receive. We use it mainly for the branding side of things. The more our faces and names are visible for the eyes to see, the more people know who we are and what we are about, the better :)

    The one thing that is great about Facebook Ads is that you can target your market very well. I wouldn't recommend advertising by impressions because you will burn your ad very quickly. Unless you are targeting a very low amount of people then you can base it on CPM. However, if you are targeting over 1 million people, the amount of views your ad will receive will be in the 10's of thousands or more, so it adds up very quickly.

    Regards,

    I've actually tried FB ads, but I never got them to convert very well....it was a loss for me every time. So, nice to see some guidance here...maybe I'll try that again someday...

    You could make a fan page, and use the CPM not Cost Per Click. Yes, you'll have to pay, but you can get really low clicks doing it this way. Pick a subject you like and make an ad asking people "click the "Like" if you like or love ....." but instead of directly marketing to people, ask them to like it at first. Post some great videos from YouTube, keep them entertained and every now and again throw in a product that relates to your topic. Make sure you set a limit on your ad though when it comes to advertising. I like to start with $2 a day to see if it's going to be worth my money. If it isn't showing many likes, I stop the ad. I watch it very closely so I'm not throwing money away. Anyway, with Facebook you can have a very targeted audience. You can take the most popular websites in your niche and look them up on Quantcast.com to find out what the audience is for that niche and target that within Facebook. You don't want to target thousands of people though, a good number to shoot for is between 20,000 and 50,000.

    Make Friends On Hubpages

    You can become ‘fans’ of other HubPage authors and vote on hubs. Like any social networking community, this can help you get more exposure and more out of the tool. Hubs with plenty of votes get more exposure in the community and because your votes could result in returned votes for your Hubs, this is a good thing!

    When someone chooses to befriend you on this site, they see your latest hubs when they log in and get e-mail notification of newly published hubs so they can become frequent viewers of your pages! Visiting other hubs and commenting can help bring other ‘hubbers’ to your hubs!

    Make Use Of Your Profile Page

    People who read your Hubs will check out your profile to learn more about you and may click through to links you post in your profile.

    one tip to facebook advertising is to try the international markets outside USA.

    the clicks are cheap. go for english speaking countries such as singapore. they are quite affluent and clicks are cheap
    which means a better ROI for your facebook advertising.

    Thankfully it's not hard to grab people's attention on Facebook, but you should pay for an ad that blends into their interface but stands out. The great part about Facebook is it's cheap for targeted advertisement. Just about everyone is on Facebook so you can appeal to a wide variety of niches.

    Facebook advertising is a little steep to get a grip on compared with the likes of Adwords, but profits can be made, just takes a little more time splitting and testing
