I have been playing around with Facebook’s promoted posts feature. Curious if anyone has been toying with this and if its paying off. I have done a few small promos but I think with the next item release I am going to do a $100 promoted post (50k – 120K reach) and see what happens.

Has anyone done anything over the $50 mark, if so please share!

I did the 10$ one and i think it paid off but i can’t be sure. I can only go as high as 10. How can you select more than 10?

I have a fan page with 8.000 likes

I’ve done $10 promotions a few times and it definitely brings more views. I can’t say whether or not it paid off, but definitely more people saw it.

I tried it once with $10 for an architecture page, I don’t know weather it helped or not, I got more likes, but after the adverts ended the likes were still growing, I would say that even faster.

Just 3 answers and I can see something that really worries me: all of those who answered have no clue whether it helped payed off or not. Will be following this discussion, looks interesting. Oh and, sorry for the off-topic Tyler, carry on guys :)

Hmmm not sure maybe they give each page different options based on their reach. I just assumed the “budgets” where the same for everyone:

I used goo.gl to track clicks on the links, while I know exactly how much traffic the item got from the posting Envato’s analytics for authors fall short in knowing what traffic converted.

I do not get those options either, do you have to turn them on. I only have 100 likes though, could that be the reason?
