Hey warriors,
I am going to promote clickbank affiliate product. But I'm confused for the traffic source. Which you guys think is better ? Facebook or Bing ?

Thanks before it.

    The one that can help you to make money is the best,the one that you try it and experience it and you feel good is the best...Don't listen to somebody else,just try it and just do it...Really this kind of stuff is like finding a woman to get married,intuitively most people would feel the pretty one is the best,but as long as you stay together for sometime,you would feel this is not true...the one that you suite each other is the best.

    It depends on various things ...

    -> Ur comfortability
    -> CPC
    -> Type of niche
    -> Ability to retarget & reap benefits
    -> How well your funnel is ...
    -> Your Goal

    Eg., If you are in niche like dog training ... You may want to target Dog Owners by sharing a video or getting them to view your ad multiple times to get them on to your page or list. In such cases FB might be beneficial ... it would b easy to get people like your page or post & possibly target them later. On the contrary, it might be tough to get sales from people who like the video just for the sake of it ...

    Where as with Bing you would end up reaching them only when they need that service. It might be less complicated funnel in such case.

    In either cases ... just make sure you start using FB PIXEL o your website immediately ... if you get on to FB ads later ... it would be helpful ...

    Just my 2 cents ... Dint mean to confuse you though.

    I think Facebook is better than Bing because Facebook allows users to target the audience of their ads by many factors, including interests and job titles.

    I have been having great success with Bing. However, it all comes down to testing and tracking.

    With the right ad and the right keywords, I've seen click through rates on Bing of over 12%. Make sure that your landing page is optimized so that your visitor actually clicks through to your clickbank product page.

    A strong call to action is mandatory.

    Personally, Facebook is still interruption marketing. People don't go on Facebook to get sold to... At least in my opinion; which is why I focus on Bing.

    Plus I find ad cost on Bing to be a little less expensive than on Facebook.

    The real answer is; which one can you laser target more effectively while still maintaining your ROI?

    It's all about sending the most relevant traffic to your offer at an adspend that makes you money.

    I.E., it's the basics of all sales. It's all about traffic and conversions. In the end, nothing else matters.

    So, dig down deep and see which you can target towards your offer better.

    you could afford all these two advertising platforms and use them to complement each other.
    But if you can't, consider who your main audience is (are they active on Facebook? do they prefer using Bing for online searches?), what your needs are and what your budget is when deciding which platform to go with. You can always change your approach--
    keep a close eye on the traffic that results from your campaign to ensure you're using the platform that's right for your business.
    Try Both

    As well as what everyone else said, Bing is good to get sales by using keywords beginning with "Buy..." to catch people who are looking to spend money now. Facebook on the other hand is good for growing a following and building your brand, to grow trust, making it more likely that people will buy off you in the future.

    But, as others have said, this will need testing, as generalities don't always apply to specific cases.

    I can only really comment on Facebook ads and not Bing (although I recently got a voucher and intend to spend it).

    I'm getting email subscribers via Facebook for £1.27 each and then selling services via email marketing campaigns.

    It's incredibly effective and completely transformed my business. I really can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work for you as well.

    The best tutorial is this one by Noah Kagan (AppSumo). He helped to build the Facebook ads platform and has over 1 million subscribers:

    I think you should go for Facebook ads rather than Bing ads. Facebook has great potential for businesses which are highly active in social media. Bing has smaller user audience than Facebook. Facebook has Option to advertise to people based on interests they've listed on the website. Facebook has feature to include rich media (photos and video) in your ads to make them more appealing.

    facebook is social media platform and Bing is a search engine. So Obviously Bing ads very important but one thing very necessary that is facebook creates more engagement than any other.So be careful...

    As per my personal exprience, facebook ads is not giving that much ROI. and Bing ads is really cool nowadays. As Google having lots of competitors and high CTR, Bing ads is giving very lower rates and good result. Yes Impression wont be that much as compared to google but you will get good quality clicks in less impressions, that is a plus point.

    So i would suggest Bing Ads.

    Both are good at their own place but there is one major difference which is:
    1. Facebook is a social media tool which have option for Ads
    2. Bing is search engine like google which also run Ads but on search engine or placement of Ads on partner websites only...
    whereas Facebook Ads can be run only and shown on Facebook only..

    Don't forget that in Facebook is more about making them aware of your service and creating the feeling that they need it.

    SEM is fulfilling a need they already know about.

    I think Facebook is better but they have routinely fudged their numbers.

    How about both?

    Obviously, facebook ads are better than Bing ads. Because most of the users are active on Facebook. So you can go with facebook ads.

    I prefer to use Adwords for most of my PPC campaigns since it has the most traffic. I do like using Bing ads for the same reason as Adwords, but the traffic just doesn't compare to Adwords. Setting up the same campaign on Adwords and Bing Ads will allow you to target almost everyone in the world, which is nice. I really like using facebook for eCommerce websites because it's good for market research and building your brand.

    Those are different channels targeting people on different points of their buying journey.

    Bing search ads are more geared to a person already searching for solution
    Facebook ads ads are great for grabbing attention of a cold traffic, that doesn't realize they have a problem or there is a solution to their long lasting problem.

    Bing for sure...Facebook is full of bots and fake traffic so you end up paying for a lot of bad clicks and unlike something like adwords there is no refund recourse for that click fraud.

    Good question for attracting digital marketer like me...
    As all know both are providing ads on paid basis but there is only difference that is facebook allow to connect with any community via frequent posting where as bing is purely advertisement platform....

    But, your ads must be a good styling to get more click or convert to your client.

    You should try building your list first. Then you should ask, Facebook or Bing, which is better for building my list?

    I say Facebook

    Yeah with this question it's really test test test. Sure you can get really narrowed down with the targetting that FB offers, but often times we have found better results on Bing. I can not honestly say I could recommend one over the other in any sort of definitive way, just test it.

    This depends on so many different things. It's kind of the equivalent of asking whats better - trucks or cars?

    They are each used for different things. If you are asking strictly from a "make money online" standpoint, I would tell you to use Facebook for eCommerce and Bing Ads for affiliate stuff. Running affiliate stuff on Facebook is not going to work very well long-term, unless its super clean PPL or eCom offers.

    Bing ads for promoting affiliate stuff and fb ads for promoting cpl campaigns. The competition is low on Bing and it's the best chance for affiliates to make the most out of it.

    Facebook ads is better than bing ads, because facebook allows advertisers to utilize data based on location, demographics, interests and psycho graphics to target users.
