86. Facebook Ad Burnout• Over time, the same ad will be less interesting to an audience• CTR decreases and CPC increases
87. How To Fight “Ad Burnout”Change up the imageRewrite the copyCreate a promotion or somethingnewsy to tell them aboutPause the ad for a few weeks and thenrun it again
88. Not Granular Enough: $4.15 per fanComments: This is one of my first Facebook ad campaigns ever, and a great example ofhow not to do it. Notice how different the targets are from one another and how thead copy doesn’t mention them at all. This ad makes the mistake of assuming you careabout what I’m promoting, and has no call to action at all, thus the low CTR and highCPC.
89. 3,599 fans for $76.09 … 2 cents per fanComments: Slightly more than 2 cents per fan. Check out the clever use of “loooove”to grab attention and emphasize the passion. Keep in mind, though, this ad may be aviolation of trademark, so watch out for that and don’t use other people’s trademarksor you’ll be at legal risk and Facebook can even shut your account down.
90. 1,118 fans for $36.13… 3 cents per fanComments: A little over 3 cents per fan. Part of the key to high CTR is the right image.With horses, it’s not easy to get the whole horse into a 110x80 image and still seemuch. For viewers to connect emotionally with the image, they have to be able to seeit, so only the head is shown here, and this is a nice, friendly looking horse.
91. 753 fans for $12.23 … 1.6 cents per fanComments: Another ad questionable in terms of using someone else’s likeness. Thetwo advertising guidelines that apply are:• 4b. Ads must clearly represent the company, product, or brand that is being advertised.• 5a. Ads must not be false, misleading, fraudulent, or deceptive.• 12a. Ads cannot include any content that infringes upon the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity or other personal or proprietary right.
92. 30 cents per fanComments: Here’s an ad that doesn’t violate the guidelines but manages to get 30cent fans. For an odd target like this, that’s actually pretty good.
93. 25 cents per fan
94. More ads from Corey McNeilComments: Corey is an expert SEOand a FanReach student who hasstudied the heck out of ourmaterial, and we talk about hisresults in a lot of our videos andcourses.He only shows CPC here but you canestimate cost per fan from theaction:click ratio here… respectively6 cents, 20 cents, 75 cents and 90cents.See how the cheapest cost per fan isthe simplest ad? NO BRAINERmarketing, buddy!
95. 458 Fans for $24.34 = 4.5 Cents Per FanMark’s business works great on Facebook and poorly with AdWords. This is becausehis product is a hybrid of two or three interests… people who love baseball or softballand the people who want to give roses to them. Baseball plus romance. AdWords isbuilt to harvest people with specific popular interests- only a fraction of those who likethose sports ALSO want to give roses. Only a fraction of those who want to give roseslike those sports. That leads to a bad CTR and low quality score in AdWords and a highCPC. But in Facebook, Mark can cheaply gather people who like all of those things andthen market to them repeatedly on the fan page, and it works - he gets a 473% ROI onhis fan acqusition ad spend.
96. B2B Facebook Fan AcquisitionIf you slicing and dicing doesn’t get you cheap fans, goextremely general. Less competition there.
97. B2B Facebook Fan AcquisitionYou still need to think about your B2B peopleand what their goals and dreams are. Pumpthese up in the image and ad copy to increaseCTR.
