Free advertising coupons from FB - Whats the deal?
FB has sent me a message saying they are giving me Rs. 1500 worth of couposn to advertise my FB fan page? Anyone else got it? Is it useful for blogs? Any ideas on how best to use it?
I too got that. I even tried using it, but it requires an online transaction of INR 0.0
Though I never used it, cause advertising on Fb wouldn't really help in promoting my blog.
But I guess content specific blogs, specially cooking, photography etc can gain a lot from Fb promotions.
I got it as well...Would be a lot useful if we have a FB page..
But Unlike Google ads..this requires CC details..only after which we can enter our coupon code..
was worth it though
Thanks Ritwik and Bala. I am a bit hesitiant to share credit card details. I do have a FB page. But I am wordering if it would help me who has a story/poetry blog.
Well..All I can say is that it's worth it..At least in case of my page..it worked..and I know many ppl who had tried their luck with FB credits and were tasted a bit of success but FB ads is not effective as Google adwords
And btw..If u add ur CC details..U will be charged $1 which will be reversed automatically..
and also remember to set the maximum budget in ur ads if u create one to INR 1500 else..u will be charged in a real deal
The Fool, I used it quite successfully. In the promo period (while using that 1500) I got about 40-50 new Likes. I registered my CC with lowest limit. I just tell you that FB charges in dollars, so you would have to calculate the converted amount before hand; it will help you in putting your upper limit of expected expenditure.
I was debited some 6dollars in addition to free 1500 rupees. It's worth giving a shot...
But they do not let you move without giving the CC informaton or am I missing something?
It is useful for the blogs, but do note that there are lot of bots/spammers that click on FB page promotions and spam about their site there. You should see this clearly in many brand's pages. I rather pay an amount depending on the site I am advertising in buysellads.com! This is effective. If you want cheap, google adsense makes more sense.
FB ad for bloggers, especially creative writing and opinion, translates poorly to results. To some extent promoted posts pull in some engagement, but facebook is not the right platform for link promotion anyway. With paid likes, if you can get a 10% engagement, I would say you are doing good. That is not what FB will say though.
