[TUTORIAL] How To Get 1 Cent Per Click For Facebook Ads

    If you are using Facebook ads to market/promote your product or anything, here is a tutorial how you can save more money for your advertising. Instead of paying $0.15-$0.50 per click, you may get only $0.01 per click.

    Tutorial
    1. If you are targeting specific location for your ads, you can add your location in your ads itself. This will somehow reduce the unneccessary clicks.
    2. Select your location(lets say USA, UK, Australia and etc.).
    3. Age range - 13 to max
    4. Select gender as both.
    5. Coming to Campaign, Pricing and Schedule section make sure "Run my Campaign Starting Today" is selected.
    6. Campaign budget: Set it for $5/day
    7. Optimization: Select "Optimize for clicks" and "manually bid for clicks"
    8. Go back to the location and play a little around by adding and removing the locations. If you are promoting any affiliate or CPA offers USA, UK, Australia, are going to be your targeting locations but just to bring you CPC down add some highly populated locations. like Peru, India, Mexico, Indonesia, argentina, sri lanka (This will drastically lower your CPC's). Oce you are happy with CPC try removing the locations you just added and you are done.
    9. Lets hope that there is no clicks from location that you add later. You don't have to worry because, by putting location into your ads itself, this reduce this risk.

    Hello,

    I have tried it, but once you remove the new locations you added, the CPC will be higher again.

    Very nice strategy, I was looking for some info to start investing on FB ads and this is great. Thanks a lot for sharing with us.

    BTW I see many people selling ebooks on 1cent clicks on FB ads, are they using this very same method?

    Surely this is just false profits? Your CPC may be lower but you're also paying for traffic from useless locations (if you're pushing offers that are location based). Furthermore, the average CPC will be lower but the clicks coming from UK/US etc will still be just as high as they were in the first place. You're simply making your average click appear lower because you're adding in clicks from locations that are of no use to you. It's a complete false economy, not useful at all.

    WebDev does have a point. It might be worth testing but the real test is the end result - not just clicks but profits.

    Also, when advertising on FB, I would NEVER start the age choice so young. 25 is the youngest I'll go when looking for clicks from people who buy. Also, FB lets you select from all kinds of things when choosing your target audience. People's buying patterns, job titles, income levels, etc.

    I've recently discovered that the single best way to make profits from FB advertising is to have a high ticket item (something that will generate you a big commission) and target people with big money who are active online buyers. There are ways to do this. And it beats selling one dollar ebooks hands down.

    You can not target your ads to 13 years old Facebook users. Minimum age requirement is 18 years.

    Once you ad highly populated area like India, Pakistan etc and you set manual bidding, your average CPC will go down because majority of the traffic will be coming from these countries but once you remove these countries from ad set, your ad set will go to "Under Review" mode for one more time as you have made some changes and then you will see that you are not getting enough impressions as you are not bidding enough to compete with other competitors in US/Australian market so you will have to increase the bid. In that case, your CPC will go higher.

    BTW just for your consideration, 1 cent targeted "Cost Per Website Click" is not possible even in India or Peru. They charges higher than that and "Relevancy Score" is an important factor now. Gone those days when such tricks was working.
