Getting $0.00 clicks on Facebook Ads (Part 1)

64 replies
$0.00 clicks, yay free traffic (lol)!

Did you know you can get a $0.00 CPC from Facebook?

It isn't literally $0.00, its just <$0.005 which rounds down to $0.00. But still, that's cheaper than PPV traffic (and a lot better quality too). Anything cheaper and better than PPV is something you are going to want to use in your business NO MATTER WHAT.

Which is why I'm going to teach you how to tame FB into giving you near free traffic!

--------------------LET THE TRAINING BEGIN------------------------------

Getting $0.00 is real hard to do. I'll be honest, I don't have more than 2 ads that get $0.00 clicks.

However, there is a simple formula to attaining this.

HIGH CTR + HIGH VOLUME = LOW CPC

Let's start off by talking about how to get a high CTR.

What's a CTR (Click Through Rate)?

The % of people that click your ad after seeing it. On Facebook the average CTR is generally %0.25. Want $0.00 clicks? Well try aiming for a %3 CTR AT THE MINIMUM!

Alright, now that we've got a goal, let's see how to get there.

First off, understand that your ad's picture influences 70% of the CTR. The other 30% is influenced by your headline and copy. People say otherwise, but this is what my testing shows.

So, if you want a high CTR, you need to have an image that will get people to click.

Now there are a number of ways to get a high CTR image, but I'll tell you 2 strategies that work best.

Strategy #1:

Add a border or a side ribbon of an EYE CATCHING color! If you've got an eye popping neon green or hot pink, people will have no choice but to look over and see what your ad says.

So that is super important, getting the user to actually look at the ad first. Now we want to generate a click using...

Strategy #2:

Use an image that will pique the user's interest. This is can be a little tough to figure out, so it calls for a lot of testing. I'll give you an example...

If the ad headline says "5 Foods That Make You Fat"

And your ad image is a bar of chocolate...

users won't be as interested in clicking (because they know chocolate will make them fat).

HOWEVER, what if we had a picture of an apple?

Well guess what, a huge alarm goes off in the head... "hey I thought apples were healthy for you???"

CLICK.

Tadah! That's how its done. Here is an example ad image that can be used to generate a high CTR for a "car insurance quote" type offer.



You can see me using both strategies 1 and 2 here.

Strategy 1: I've got the bright green ribbon at the side.

Strategy 2: A sweet car that's been beat up. ALARM "Oh %$#@ what happened to that car"

CLICK.

Okay, so by now you should have the high CTR part covered.

Let's talk about high volume.

What does volume mean? Well its lingo for a lot of traffic. And guess what, you are going to need a lot of clicks coming in through your ad if you want to drop that CPC down to $0.00

Long gone are your days of targeting 10,000 potential users. Ramp that number up and make sure your ad reaches at least 1,000,000 people.

That's volume.

So we've got the two parts of the equation. Take this information and plug it into your Facebook Advertising Campaigns.

And if you do things right, your CPC will be going downhill

Please note: This requires a MASSIVE amount of skill. Why?

Well, you are targeting a HUGE amount of people. and you are trying to get a HUGE CTR.

And that's a paradox, because the more people you target, the smaller your CTR gets.

So we need to make sure that our CTR stays insanely high, AND that our ad is shown to enough people so we can get lots of clicks (which will ultimately drop our CPC to $0.00).

I've got a few more tricks up my sleeve to do exactly that But my hands are hurting from typing too much, so you'll have to wait for part 2 of this post where I unload the gravy and show you my last few ninja secrets on getting $0.00 clicks.

Until then, make the best out of this information, and if I helped you out, click the "Thanks" button below!

Jacob

P.S. Even though the $0.00 click is really hard to get, that gives you no reason to not apply these tactics and drop your click cost down to the $0.01 - $0.05 range.

Use FB in your marketing, get cheap clicks, then make A TON OF MONEY.

    Does this refer to the demographics and estimated reach after we drill down into our niche in the likes & interests keywords/categories while making a Facebook ad?

      Yes, I am referring to the estimated reach (I talk more about getting volume in part 2)

      Basically you've got to understand that when you are going for $0.00, your demographic has got to be "big enough".

      Don't try and target people that want to learn how to juggle. It won't work.

      On the flip side, you can easily target people that play the video game "Call Of Duty".

      See the difference?

      And remember, even when you are targeting Call Of Duty players, you've got to have broad demographics.

      Example:

      Demographic #1: Males between the ages of 20 - 30 that are a fan of Call Of Duty 5

      Demographic #2: Both genders of the age 18 - 40 that are a fan of Call Of Duty 4, 5 or 6.

      Demo 1 might only have 100,000, whereas demo 2 would have 1,000,000 people.

    Great Post, a couple questions for you.

    Are you using his with only CPC or could this be used towards CPM as well? OR is CPM out of the question for this strategy because of the High Volume?

    Also, is this international targeting or U.S.?

    I'll be implementing your stuff tonite to see what happens.

    I once got 1.25% on FB and was so ecstatic! Then it went down,down,down, and nothing converted .

      I always start all my ads with CPC and nowadays that is the only thing I use.

      However, I know of some people that use an equation (don't know what it is, but it has got something to do with CTR and eCPM) to decide whether or not to switch their ads to CPM or stay with CPC.

      I'm sure if you do a quick search on Google something will turn up.

      Also, is this international targeting or U.S.?

      Usually a mix. Now that I've walked away from CPA and barely use it anymore, the question of country targeting becomes really easy.

      In fact, I hate Facebook for not letting me target all countries (you have to pick at least one and I can't be bothered to type every country out).

      I have never gotten a $0.00 click for U.S. only targeting. I won't say it can't be done (because it has been done by others), but I haven't tried it so I'll leave that for you to test.

      However I can say that some countries have insanely high CTRs *cough* Mexio *cough* for no apparent reason. I guess they just like clicking on ads? (who knew, lol)

      I once got 1.25% on FB and was so ecstatic! Then it went down,down,down, and nothing converted

      Back in the day FB's ad placement algorithm was horrible. I say it has gotten a bit better now, but still, you won't know the true CTR for an ad unless you run it for about a day.

      Yeah, its all about the volume and not the ROI. I'll be digging deep on how this works in part 2.

      But just think of it like this...

      Would you pay .50 a click and get a $1.00 EPC (50 cent profit per click) and get 10 clicks a day? ($5/day profit)

      Or would you pay .05 a click and get a .15 EPC (10 cent profit per click) and get 1000 clicks a day? ($100/day profit)

      When trying to get a high CTR, I'll be honest, you have to be really ballsy because you lose a fair amount of money upfront.

      Be careful though, this whole high CTR approach doesn't work on all PPC networks.

    CTR and images that stand out are one thing, but conversions and profits are the real indicator. Yes you can get cheap clicks in some countries, but who cares if they don't convert. If your ad is of a car crash and you're sending them to some free credit report offer, you better have a wicked landing page to transition them at least.

      Right on my friend. (car crash for auto insurance though )

      Doing this in U.S.A. can get you clicks as cheap as $0.04. You have to give up conversions, but the volume is where the real money is at.

      This is definitely good for CPL type stuff. Build a list with cheap traffic once, sell to them forever. That's how its done.

      Hey Jacob,

      well after an enthusiastic start, it kind of fell apart at the end somewhat.

      Since cheaper ads are a 'must have' for me, I entered into this with great enthusiasm.

      I did all the things in Parts 1 and 2 of your posts in constructing my latest Ad - just to test the system.

      I had the brightly colored border. I had a great pic, I bid a couple of cents under the suggested maximum price. I had the Ad go to a newly created FB page instead of my offer page.

      When my Ad was approved, which took a good deal longer than usual for reasons unknown, my $100 daily limit was used up in less than an hour - with clicks costing me a staggering $1.49 - twice what I've been paying with the same Ad previously.

      And what did I get for my money?

      Well clearly, I got just half the clicks for my $100 that I usually get?

      Other than that, all I got was a whole swag of 'Likes', where people had been directed to the FB Page, then I suppose had not been sure what to do, and had clicked the 'Like' tab instead of the one next to it which was the one that would send them to my site, even though the correct tab was clearly labelled for my offer.

      Even when I was setting this system up, a couple of things were really haunting me.....

      - Firstly, how would it be obvious to people that I was wanting them to click one tab versus another (well, clearly I see now that they didn't!), and ....

      - Secondly, why would we think that a person responding to an Ad would be happy to, or even be expected to, click two buttons to get to the eventual offer page?

      I'm new to much of this, but as far as I can tell, my newbie, no experience, but common sense based expectations and apprehensions seem to have proven to be spot on.

      Can Jacob, or anyone else, tell me if I've missed some huge point here?

      Thanks guys
      Paul

        Hey Paul,

        Oh no! You weren't supposed to send people to the "timeline" part of your page!

        Sorry, I know there is a lot to your post, but I could barely read through everything once I got to the part where you said that you sent them to your page.

        Yes, I would expect probably 1/200 people to click the page tab of your website. No one is interested in it, and that is not the clear "direction" of any fan page (to click on the page tab). Remember, these people are running through a bunch of social media "noise" with notifications, chats popping up, other ads, like buttons etc.

        Okay, well for starters I'm really happy you took action.

        Next: In FB you have the option of sending the visitors directly to a specific page tab. In the ad you created, there is a drop down menu that says "Timeline". Change that to the name of your page tab.

        "1.49/click". Ouch, don't know how that happened. I think you either had some not so good targeting, or your targeting was simply too broad.

        Start specific first, and then move outwards. Remember, $0.00 clicks will do you know good if the website you are sending it to can't make money from those visitors! Instead of trying to grab $0.00 clicks when starting out, try and concentrate on your landing page/sales funnel. Once you've got that down, concentrate on lowering your click cost and driving volume.

        Your story made my head spin a little. Let me know if I missed something. Again, I'm glad you've taken action. You are already ahead of 90% of people. The $100 you've spent was a priceless investment in your education!

        EDIT: Just adding some more stuff...

        "I had the Ad go to a newly created FB page instead of my offer page."

        Make your offer page a page tab in your FB page in the way I explained it in the "how I get almost any FB ad approved" video.

        You have also got fans on your fan page. Deliver value to them and then pitch them your offer page. That'll help you recoup some of your cost.

          Hi Jacob,

          thanks for replying, I appreciate your time.

          There might be more to this than the explanation you've provided. I did read the instructions ultra cautiously, and I understood the instruction NOT to send traffic to my timeline. I've just taken a fresh look to be doubly sure, and the 'Landing View' is definitely set to my App Name.

          In fact, as I was carefully following your video instructions, the layout of my FB page looked exactly like yours in the video.

          When you had finished the installation procedure, your video showed your FB page, where people land after clicking on your Ad presumably, with several Tabs, one of which is the Tab called 'My Blog' - which takes people to your blog.

          I have exactly the same set-up. When people click on my Ad, they come to my FB page where they see 3 Tabs (Photos/Likes/My App Name).

          As far as I can tell, this is exactly as you seem to have been telling us to do.

          The problem was that instead of clicking on the MY APP NAME tab, they clicked on the LIKE Tab.

          So I suppose my original question still stands. What is there that would make it obvious to a visitor, that the MY APP NAME tab is the one they should click next. I'm sure my batch of 50 visitors were more or less average in intellect etc, and they all seem to have clicked the LIKE tab.

          From what I'm saying, I'm sure I've done it right.

          To make sure I understand, when people click on our add, we're supposed to send them to our FB Page, right? By Page, I mean the newly created Page with the same Title as our Ad. That's what I've done, and when I click on the correct Tab on this page, it does take me to my squeeze page. It looks like it works as it should.

          My problems are, I think, that the PPC was far too high for reasons I don't understand, as I did everything you said. And visitors seem to not know they have to press the App Name or Button with the same name as the Ad they've just clicked on a few seconds ago.

          Is my thinking correct here Jacob, or anyone? Am I missing some major point. That is quite possible by the way, as I am new to much of this.

          Any pointers or help greatly appreciated.

          Cheers,
          Paul

            "As far as I can tell, this is exactly as you seem to have been telling us to do. "

            I think there is a huge misunderstanding of some sort.

            I would never have said to send traffic to the Page directly. I'm sorry if I somehow gave that impression, but I highly doubt that the way I set everything up in the instructional video would ever build a funnel the way you are explaining it.

            Like I said in my previous post, I would expect about 1/200 people to click on your MY APP NAME tab from your page. The "main view" of the page where people are going to (in your case) is the Timeline view.

            I'm not sure what has happened, but your visitors should never see that view. They should automatically be sent to your MY APP NAME page tab. This is all set inside your FB Ad setup.

            I actually reviewed my video and I can confirm that I set everything up 100% correct.

            I think you might have made a mistake when you set up your ad. Even though you triple checked, mistakes still happen.

            I suggest you start fresh and create a new ad and do exactly what I do in the video (practically step by step). It should probably end up right the second time.

            Cheers!

            Jacob

    Thanks for the info but PPC coach is rite. Unless you have a killer offer / landing page then would it be worth it to have a flashy picture. I would rather have a more qualified click and pay 50 cents more then have a click that just clicks because of the picture and doesn't really care about the ad.

    But definitly a helpful and well written article! Thank you!!

      that is solid advice, I like the apple idea for foods that make you fat.

      Reminds me of an ad I saw some time ago saying, "The Second Largest Cause of Cavities" with a picture of a pear.

    With the countries I'm targeting, I am seriously going broad over here (age gap of 10 years) but the demo is so small the numbers often add up to only 20k to 30k audience. Ads are fully optimized, lots of split testing (I've tried many things) but CTR always suffers, I'm getting like 0.02~0.04%. Bids are high but I don't seem to get enough impressions sometimes.

    Although conversions are the key thing here, my ads are definitely not getting HIGH enough CTR to get a LOW enough CPC to increase the profit margin.

    Very nice and detailed info. Even thought $0.00 clicks can be hard to get, if people can reduce their cost per click by a considerable margin by following these tips, it can be an awesome thing for them.

    Thats great dude but I had to stop using FaceBook a while ago because I think they were doing something like making clicks so I had to end up paying more.

    I know it's hard to understand what I'm saying but I just don't trust them. But hey if it's working for you then that's great.

      Personally, I would never assume that FB ever sends fake traffic.

      I know when I was starting out I blamed a lot of ad networks of sending "fake traffic". Although some do (very few) most send real traffic. What I didn't understand is that people click away very easily etc. so it is hard to get conversions.

      ----------------------
      E.g. Sent 20 clicks to a Clickbank affiliate link and no sale? Most people start thinking traffic is fake at this point. Reality? You probably won't get a sale after 100 clicks.

      Solution? Constantly split test your ads and your demographics. If possible, throw up a pre-sell page to increase conversions.
      ---------------------

      Of course I don't know your exact scenario, I'm just saying that you might be in the same mindset that I was in about 3 years ago.

          It does click to your website. Maybe I'm not understanding your question?

    I'm late to the game here but I thought I might chime in on something that bothered me intensely for awhile, and then I figured it out and bam, my CTR started to go crazy.

    No I didn't go purchase some stupid software to make 100 filters. Gimp and Photoshop or even pixlr.com can do that for you.

    I use a site everyone has access to and maybe some know how to use but others have completely overlooked. This site allows me to pretty much lock down which image in which niche is going to be successful before I even launch a campaign on Facebook or anywhere else for that matter.

    If anyone is still reading this thread, I tell you once I hear back ...
