Will facebook take all the money

by derprinz 15 replies
Hi
If i set a daily budget of 15 dollars on facebook ads and if the clicks cost 10 dollars for example, would Facebook take 15 or 10 ?

Another question please : when targeting US , which is the best time to set?

Thanks

    Facebook will do everything possible to get all of the daily set budget, I mean why not... you have told them, please bill me $15, why would they only take $10?

    If you set a daily budget for $15 and only $10 is used you will only be billed $10 and not $15. Considering everything is in real time your only billed on whats used. Keep in mind it's very rare for facebook to stay "under budget" this only happens if your target audience is very small and / or specific.

    When it comes to targetting the USA. It depends on what industry & age your targetting. Try and put yourself in your target audicances shoes and ask yourself. What would be the most convenient time for me?

    best of luck!

      I don't think that he meant $10 per click.

      What I think he meant is $10 per day.

    After taking all the money,
    they disapproved and say

    Your ad wasn't approved because it uses too much text in its image, which violates Facebook's Ad Guidelines. Ads that show in the News Feed can't include more than 20% text. You'll still be charged for any impressions or clicks your ad received before it was disapproved.


    20% text !!!!!!!!!!!!! Now i have to buy a software to tell if it's more than 20% or not !!!!!!!

      When your ad is disaproved because it is more than 20% text, You can click through to use Facebooks own tool that shows you if it is more than 20% or not!

    It will only take what it delivers to you as promised. Believe anyone saying it will do everything possible to take all you pledged daily.

    Facebook has millions of traffic daily that you won't be able to put up all the funds required to exhaust it, so you are left with the option of pay as you go.

    Just make it all round the clock, what matters is filtering down your campaign.

    Don't worry Facebook will charge only 10 $ .
    And their is also no issue about ad disapproval because your money will be refundable in such condition.

      Here's a link to the 20% Text Overlay tool, use it to see if you have too much text or not.

      Code:
      https://www.facebook.com/ads/tools/text_overlay
      Facebook always tries to use your full budget, so always remember to pick the right amount that you are willing to spend. to make your budget last longer you can submit the ad at night (keep it paused) and when its approved you can run it first thing in the morning. If you start running an ad at 9pm FB will try to spend your whole budget before 00:00 (LA Time).

    Have you tried setting up a Page, then boosting your own Posts? I find that I get a greater CTR on that, as opposed to traditional FB ads.
