Today I want to tell you how I earned $11k in 11 days with Adsterra using Facebook Ad Manager.
The workflow is the following: Facebook > Your Domain > Ads
It is not perfect, and Facebook sometimes doesn’t approve my ads, bans my FB accounts, etc. But anyway, here is what I earned:
My manager from Adsterra advised me to concentrate on mobile South Africa traffic, and I did. All this traffic is pure 3g 4g South Africa.
So, how do you start?
First of all, you need a domain. Don’t use free hostings like blogspot, or you might be banned for sure. Facebook doesn’t like blogspot.
You can go to Namecheap and buy a domain for less than $9, and for the first month of hosting for $1. You don’t need to be a web specialist to create a site, all files will be automatically installed, and you just start working in a minute.
I placed a fake player and several fake download buttons on my promoted page.
Secondly, you need an account in Adsterra. You can use my referral link to register 🙂 https://publishers.adsterra.com/invite/ndqkz
After you have been approved, get a direct link code, ask for an anti-adblock solution. This code contains different ads for different verticals.
Take your direct ad link and attach it to your fake player and buttons. It’s a Facebook safe option.
Now you need to launch the Facebook Ad campaign. Hope you know how to do it, if not, follow Facebook instructions, it’s easy as pice of cake.
You need several Facebook accounts with business accounts created.
Click the Create button, choose Ad.
Click on Traffic
Scroll down, set up your budget, billing method and ad campaign.
I used the following targetings: South Africa, age 18-50, gender all, Behaviours > Mobile Device User > Network Connection > 3G & 4G
Add a link to your webpage with the ad codes.
By my experience thumbnails with play button and light erotic context collect more clicks. But the chance of being banned by Facebook is higher. It depends on some luck.
Here is how my best performing thumbnails:
Don’t use these images, by the time you are reading the article, they are already blacklisted by Facebook. You need to find new images every time. You need unique images.
The best strategy is to have multiple Facebook accounts with 1-2 campaigns running at the same time. Don’t invest more than $10-20 per campaign. Facebook for some reason delivers less clicks if you invest more.
Wait till the money is spent and invest again.
Look at your conversion rate from Facebook impression into Facebook Clicks. Try to keep it above 12%. If it is less, change your thumbnail.
Not all people who clicked your ad on Facebook will click on your direct link ads. It is normal. Try to keep conversion rate from Facebook Clicks into Adsterra impressions higher than 80%.
If it is less, change your landing page. Change the player image, buttons, put them in different places, make them bigger, blinking, etc.
