If there is one thing you MUST have in order to earn an income online – it’s targeted TRAFFIC!
I have been experimenting with a lot of traffic tactics lately. There are many free and paid traffic tactics and BOTH work great. Like with anything there are pros and cons to both ways of getting traffic.
While I like boths types there’s something about paid traffic that I love! I’m quite sure it has something to do with INSTANT traffic. No waiting for months to see if an offer converts! You can find out within hours really.
The best part is that if you create a product and sales funnel that converts and becomes profitable then you can afford to spend money on ads and continue to siphon leads/customers 24 hrs/7 days a week. Now that’s smart.
Enter Facebook Ads
If you are looking for a lot of targeted traffic FAST then use Facebook ads! I’ve been playing around with Facebook ads over the past week and have learned so much thanks to Amy’s awesome training. But one thing I’m shocked about is that for the most part I’ve been paying .07-.11 per click, which is pretty good if you know anything about paid traffic. When I played around with Google Adwords I NEVER got that low.
There are a lot of ways to use Facebook ads to drive traffic. Here are 3 things I’m using it to do right now:
1. Drive Traffic to Blog Posts – If you want more engagement or more eyeballs on your content then use Facebook ads to get more people to your blog posts.
2. Drive Traffic to Opt-in Page – If you want more leads coming into your business then use Facebook ads to drive traffic to your squeeze page.
3. Build More Likes on Business Page – If you want more likes to build social proof then use Facebook ads to drive traffic to ‘Like’ your page.
I went from around 178 likes to more than 1100 likes off of a couple of days promotion and spent less than $50 (my first time using Facebook Ads too)! I also got a lot of opt-ins (though I wasn’t tracking very closely). The key to low cost per click is to have pictures that pop and ad copy that speaks to your market. The higher your click thru rate the better it is for you! Of course, you should always test to make sure you have the best possible ad running.
