I hear people saying they can get 0-1c clicks to website on Facebook, even in the make money online niche...is that BS? Or is it possible? If so, How???? I'm paying through the nose with these clicks to website and not making ROI on it. Some tips would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

    Depending on a large number of factors that you have to get right, it's possible to get less than 1 cent clicks. This is after optimizing of course - you will never start out near that. Most importantly, it will be due to retargeting. If you are not already using that, start now.

    Yes it's possible...

    As it's mostly done through a post that has gone viral and getting copious amounts of shares.

    (along with an already highly-targeted audience)

    It's kind of true.

    Facebook counts a lot of things as "clicks" that us marketers don't consider clicks. I consider a click to be a click to my website or click to my link. Facebook counts that plus likes, shares and comments as clicks. So the people claiming penny clicks or $0.0000001 clicks are not being 100% accurate.

    You can get cheap "clicks" on video views but they're not real clicks to your website.

    Hey myattitude...most likely people claiming that are using other engagements versus clicks to websites. I've worked in tons of niches for clients and myself and know tons of "tricks" and never once got it as low as that. I know tons of marketers as well and they never have got it that low from clicks to website. Like said through inside facebook conversions possible depending on tons of factors but not on clicks to your website.

    And javisto...you have several options through facebook marketing anywhere from inside facebook like contests, likes etc or off facebook like bringing clicks to your site (not a fanpage inside facebook) and more...
