    • Short for cost-per-click, advertisers pay based on the number of clicks on their ad
    • EXAMPLE
    • Set your CPC at $0.50/per click
    • 1000 impressions (views) were served with 50 clicks on your ad

    •  
    • Start your CPC bid low
    • More targeting = more expensive
    • Pay more = your ad targets a very specific demographic example: women, age 30, Ohio, married
    • Pay less = your ad targets a broad demographic example: women from the United States
    How many ads have you placed on Facebook?
  • 10. Determine Ad Performance, CTR
