    I have spent $43.32 on facebook last two days & only earned $4. Got 92 clicks but only 3 converted. I'm so done with facebook. But still have $100 to go. Any suggestions to profit from here?

    The fanpage route still works where you make a fanpage and direct traffic to your fanpage. Now building a fanpage itself takes only a few minutes but getting fans takes some time. So, I suggest that you make a fanpage and then wait a few days at least until you have a couple hundred followers before you start promoting offers. An ad with a like button will get fans to your fanpage.

    You have to lose money, to make money!

    Have you done PPC before? Did you track your clicks and keywords etc? Have you tested different offers?

    I usually split testing based on age.
    First research demographic on POF or Quancast, alexa and ad planner is good too.
    then adding tracking to know image ctr and convertion, so i adding keyword such us IMG01_3035.
    IMG01 means which picture get the best ctr and 3055 is age between 30-35
    You may split test based on interest too in other campaign.

    Apart from my previous lose. This is my new stats.
    [​IMG]

    Only 2 conversions. Got some info though. But still not worth it. Facebook really sucking my blood. When I setup CPC ad, they drive traffic like crazy charging me $1.50 per click. When it's CPM there's hardly any clicks. If there's, they they're expensive than CPC. I don't think Facebook expecting me to pay that bill ;) Suckers.

    I was promoting dating offer. Got another conversion. So 3 total. CRT is ok with CPC but conversion rate is disappointing.

    I am profitable with gaming and entertainment related offers. Dating is a pain because of the ad approval team.

    You may want to switch to CPM when dealing with Facebook. Doing PPC on Facebook is usually best when you are trying to get a good view rate on a Facebook Fan Page (and unfortunately they are drastically changing that).
