New Case Study: 750% ROI Diet Ads $25 -> $190 in a single day.

48 replies






And they say diet is dead. I'm up $200 on my campaign spend and hit my B/E last night. Shooting for 150% ROI across the board. Changed my targeting yesterday and I went from the red to way in the green.

The secret - if your getting clicks and no conversions. Focus on who the people your marketing to are and how they feel about themselves. :p

This is CPA marketing on Facebook PPC with Garcinia/Green Coffee.

    'Damn, I'm fat.'

    'Damn I wish I hadn't eaten ALL that food.'

    'I wish there was an easy way to lose weight fast!'

    I like it Did you pre-sell with a landing page?

    Oh yea sexy LP. I'm up to $224 now from $33 spend. Shooting for $500 today per $100 spent. Insane.

    Other note, your landing pages content should be used in your demographic targeting.

    Interesting stuff.

    Targeting: Are you hitting the typical 'lose weight' 'dieting' type specific interests or are you looking at other areas? If so, what? I not asking for the exact special interests that you are using but rather a general direction that you are looking at, AKA your mindset.

    Any other specific information? Gender, age range and specifically WHY are you at those points? What's the mental process behind it?

    Lastly, I'm unfamiliar with that stat screen. What CPA network is that? I'm not trying to chase the offer you are using, but rather look into more networks besides the ones I'm in currently.

    Also, good job on your success. Sorry if I'm breaking up the cheerleading a little bit.

      Are you prepared to actually talk about your campaign (because I do have a few questions) or is it more of a 'look how awesome I am' thread? Either thing is fine, but I would like to know what the intention is so I don't put you in a position that you didn't want to be in.

        See my revision - that is obviously not all there is.

        That would be like me saying that I made $500 by redirecting a visitor from one page to another and saying 'That's all there is to cloaking.'

        Or maybe that I made $1,000 by making people click on my adsense ads when they didn't know it - then when asked about it saying 'Well, that's all there is to clickjacking.'

        Visit the links and you will obviously see there is far more information. So if you don't have anything to add to the conversation, leave.

      It is CAKE and Facebooks Ad graph. I can't share my specifics obviously. But I gave the whole campaign away outside of the ad copy and demographic.

      Oh. I'm using actual ad units: direct link to a landing page that presells the offer and then I rotate different diet offers. I use nothing about being fat. That makes people feel bad and they will hate your ad and not click on it or you'll see a very low conversion rate to click rate.

          I have found not every niche should use CPM ads.

          I am seeing .10 to .17 cent clicks across the whole campaign in the US.

          Facebook sees people are clicking your ad so they will serve more volume which enables more clicks. You can keep lowering your bid and you'll notice your CPC will fall if you keep your account funded.

    Why wouldn't you keep something like on the down low? Why am I having a hard time believing this? Not that it's not possible - by ANY means - just when you find that 1 gold nugget, you don't go around telling everyone about it.

    But if it's real - good for you.

      You have to cloak this stuff on FB or they will ban you since FB has always hated rebills and there's no way they will allow this on their platform.

      Your ads may not break the rules but directing users to rebills sure does. If you're using bait and switch, it's only a matter of time now before FB finds out.

      Here is the past few days through testing new ads, demographics, etc. Next week I'm going to open this bad boy up. I'm seeing 16:1 and 6:1 depending on the trial step they chose.

      *****I'm telling you what I'm doing.*****
      DIET TRIALS I host them on my small network Login - My Facebook Formula Network it is part of the picture of the WSO on my sig.

      The straight-sale happened by accident due to a cap on the offer. I've actually made $710 or so once they adjust the payout by $20 or so.

        Ok so you're using a Landing page, not direct linking...Direct linking would be from your FB ads directly to the offer page.

    Lots of detailed stuff in here.

    I love how you say the secret is in the demographics, I do tons of fan pages, and my testing like yours always gets way better results, when i target better and my adcopy is honing in on that particular groups frustrations.

    Thanks mate. Awesome post.

    the "other" forum keeps telling me how FB is purging all diet ads and that you're gonna get you account(s) killed for promoting diet, especially since you're direct linking to your landing page. HOWEVER, i know that you can KILL on FB with this method.

    Let us know how this goes. HIGHLY interested.

    hey man very cool and thanks for taking time out of your day to post your results and success. I've never really been good with fb ads and found them to be a pain. It's good to hear that you can still make money with cpa on fb and you're giving away a free gem to all of us here.

    I hope you are using "legit" lp/presale and not a farticle or flog . If you are doing anything blackhatish I suggest you to take it down before they ban your account. But since you said you are not cloaking, I have a feeling you are doing this the white hat way .

    And btw to folks over here, you can still run various stuff on fb if you do it smart. I.E. I got my bingo/gambling ads approved on fb and I was doing 150%-200% ROI daily. You can do the same with diet, just think out of the box!

    Congrats on your success ZephyrIon! Don't stop here, scale and keep split testing.
    Cheers

    Cloaking Facebook will always work. But it's a zero sums game in the end.
