Though I’ve been writing for nearing four years now, when it comes to marketing I am still a newb! I know I must do it, it’s the only way to reach the masses. However I find it boring and costly. So you can take my following proof at face value – this is my take on just winging it.
The most I can glean from the experience myself is that Facebook LIES. I’ve told them as much and they’ve not yet responded.
I posted an ad to drive people to my WordPress Blog. This is Facebook’s Analytics for 7 days – $20.00 max spending. I thought, hey that’s not too shabby, 20$ is worth that many eyes. Perhaps I’ve even sold a book or two from the clicks to a sale on my blog.
(And one comment that I can’t find anywhere)
The WordPress Analytics paint a completely different picture.
101 total views and only 53 from Facebook…..hmmm….who’s lying here?
So I guess, unless you’re a marketing whiz, or already have a name for yourself, be-wary of who to decide to pay for promotions.
Has anyone else done testing with similar, or GOOD results?
