    • Even when foreign language text was used with US English audience …
      • Takeaway-> IMAGE makes by far the most difference
      Source:Shoemoney.com http://fcow.co/SM
    • Types of Facebook Ads / Images which get most clicks
      Photos of people consistently outperform logos -> Facebook themselves say this
      Attractive women with big “personality”… (Shoemoney’s study)
      Pictures illustrating the result / desire
      Ads which “blend” in with the look and feel of Facebook e.g. Shoemoney’s Dating ads ->“Browse my pics (42)”
      Image Source:Shoemoney.com http://fcow.co/SM
    • Cranking up Saturation + Contrast increases CTR (study by aimclear.com), try free image tool IrfanView
      Image Source: aimclear.com
    • How to steal competitors customer information to laser target Facebook Ads
      Aged 35-50+
      High Income
      College / Grad School
    • Facebook Ads: Higher CTR = Lower CPC
      For CPC 0.10 EUR -> need CTR 0.20%-0.30% (Source: akom360.de)
      • Start with CPC -> once high CTR, flip to CPM = cheaper
      • Watch CPM campaigns carefully -> can waste money if CTR drops
    • The Real Money from online Business is REPEAT Customers
      It is far cheaper to market to an existing customerthan to a
      new customer
    • First time customers
      Questions, Scammers, Timewasters,
      Hassles … NO TRUST
      Image:gottatopic.com & swing-smarter-baseball-hitting-drills.com
    • Repeat customers = Trust, Rapport, Relationship
      The value in a “business” is your list of people and the relationship you have with those people
    • If you send traffic straight to an affiliate offer -> you are leaving money on the table
      Capture lead via Email / Facebook -> market to them many times over
      Once customer opts in -> give good tips -> more trust -> more likely to follow recommendations and buy
      Good affiliate offers reflect lifetime customer value / ongoing commissions

    • CatchOfTheDay.com.au
      2 brothers= $200 million
