Alternatives to Facebook Ads

18 replies
Hello Warriors,

I am having extreme issues getting traffic for my social media shop site. Basically I've been trying to use Facebook but get errors and such. I can't use Adwords either as my site violates their policies.

What are some alternatives to these and what can I do to expand traffic. I only run on two forums and I find posting extremely difficult.


Thanks,
Disruption

    I'm having the opposite problem. I have been sending stacks of traffic to sites within my niche and been looking to apply the principles to other areas. I've created a bunch of Clickbank ads in FB and have had CPCs as low as .04, but the conversions are so low that it's not worthwhile.

    Anyone feel like they have a high conversion landing page and want to give it a whirl, hit me up

        POF = PlentyOfFish. It's the biggest dating website, and they have a very nice integrated self-served ads system.

        However, traffic doesn't really work that well for all kind of niches.

    it really does depends upon your niche, but pinterest has also started ads, you can contact them and see if you can make it in
    Also stumbleupon works good for entertainment like sites, so it really does depends on niche, but you have more than couple options to avail

      What errors are you getting? Do you mean your ad is getting disapproved? FB ads can be effective, but like any paid traffic strategy, learning the ropes can take some time. It may be worthwhile to get past your hurdles on FB rather than moving to another platform. If you are B2B, LinkedIn could be another platform to consider.
