Zero clicks. Zilch. Nada. Facebook ran my ad 1,086 times, but no one clicked. Yesterday I decided to do a Facebook ad experiment, ponying up 5 whole dollars from my own personal funds for a one-day maximum CPC campaign spend.
Today I’m re-running the campaign. This time ’round I’m sticking with the same exact ad creative but targeting a much broader audience of “people in the United States who like Baking, Rock, Punk, or Punk Rock.” According to the system, that brings my audience up to 682,600 as opposed to yesterday’s narrower 185,960 potential ad viewers.
That whopping $5 daily minimum is still burning a whole in my pocket, Facebook. Help me spend it!
