It depends on the type of AD.  Display Campaigns take longer to "learn" and begin delivering impressing. Search Campaigns have a "learning curve" which I found to be shorter.

Here is a really useful guide for FB ads that work.

I am running $1.25/day ads, and I am still getting around 1000 to 2000 page reads per day for most days.

A free book and a $9/day ad with good targeting and copy should generate good results, at least in the clicks department. FB ads can be daunting at first, but they will be automatic once you create a set or two. One word of advice: make sure you calculate your ad budget good. Unlike Amazon, FB takes your money almost daily.

EDIT: The hardest part of FB ads is finding interest groups as indie authors (and most trads) are not targetable.

Before following this guide, I had 0 results.

Actually, most of the stuff on the Kindlepreneur website is good.

I wonder whar they were thinking. Maybe it had to do with blurbd, thinking they could write better ones than we could. I think it's an all around market problem. As I've said before, we now have to compete with streaming movies.

Even Bookbub doesn't seem to be selling our books the way they once did, although they keep raising their prices - perhaps to compensate for their losing bottom line.

I've hadn't promoted in several Goodreads groups until a couple of weeks ago and sales are starting to pick up a little. Wish I could find more groups like that. Again, for me it's the problem of saturating the market. There has to be a way to find new markets without paying an arm and a leg.

I just made the first book in my MT Romance Series free, so hopefully it will sell the other books in the series. Hopefully! All we can do is keep trying new things and new places.

AMS is wonky enough for me to have almost completely given up on them. I have noticed that even auto ads take a while to warm up. Drop your daily budget to a few dollars, then watch the ads that day, as soon as they start hitting, up the daily budget. Sometimes that will work. Alternatively, I've noticed when I pause my ads for a day or two then restart them, it seems to kick start them too.

That makes me scratch my head.

How is 900 clicks even comparable to my 300. You literally got triple the amount. I mean they both resulted in almost nothing, but what is their definition of an acceptable range. Because 1/3 doesn't seem that way to me!

Mine was a freebie.

I don't think I've ever turned a profit with Freebooksy/Bargainbooksy. If I wanted to advertise, I'd go with Fussy Librarian. I always made  money with them but that was before Zon interfered with my audiobook sales. Also, Fussy has priced themselves out of my range. They raise their prices whenever there is a jump in subscribers and justifiably so.

It just released the day I set up the ads, but has a couple sales.

Seems like a Catch-22. How can it sell if no one can be directed to the page?

Guess I'll have to set up some FB ads. bleh.

I'm afraid you're right about that.

Is the ad delivering.

The no data simply means it hasn't shown it to anyone.

I havent had a an ad take more than 12 hours.
