      You ever bought something using those Shopify ads ? I have used Shopify account to sell latest gizmos and conversion rate is awful.

      On the flip side don’t turn off your microphone access to FB or Insta otherwise you will lose your targeted ads.

      Re My only concern is nobody I talked to ever mentions buying anything on FB.

      Anecdotal evidence is the best evidence.

    FB ads are better than Adwords 9/10 times. They are cheaper and much more precisely targetable. You’re just either selling junk or bad at optimizing/marketing.

      Have you sold anything using FB ads ? Nobody trusts brandless websites that sell women’s beauty products from China

      Then your problems isn’t the platform but your shitty brandless website.

      People see ads on FB and buy the same on amazon. It comes to your door in a day or two. FB stuff takes weeks. Expensive as well. Real story

      I’ve never tried to sell crap via shopify. I worked at a marketing firm which ran FB ads for big clients and usually ROI was much higher on FB ads than Adwords/Bing ads

    I've worked for marketing team prior to joining FB. Fb had great ROI compared to most marketing channels. Heard same feedback from many folks during casual conversations.

    Are you trying to say that everyone is dumb for running ads on fb? We do make 50B+ a year. So there is atleast something that we are doing right.

    Complaining that the product is poorly built, commenting on how great Amazon prime is, taking examples from a small sample. The post just looks like you are trying to make yourself feel good. There are 2b+ ppl using fb products. So it ain't so bad.

      OP
      First reasonable answer.

      I’m not trying to make myself feel good though I’m Amazon Employee so it’s easy to make that conclusion. What will be the best method to check 50B claim. Quarterly reports ?

      Product is solid built. You can target like anything but I don’t see any one close who opens their wallet on FB.

      OP
      It’s as random as yours. Lets stick to the question. Any data showing FB revenues from ads and how it has progressed in last few years ? Or IG or WhatsApp revenues ?

    • Facebook qwertyuip
      Mine is not random. Now I understand how you don't realize the way ad business works.

      What part you want me to learn about ? I have used FB ads for Shopify, PPC ads for amazon FBA and Google ads for local businesses.

      FB revenue question and how it progressed?
      It is public information on any quarterly report. You really should be a senator.

    Ads are not always for direct immediate conversion. If you see a coke advrt., Fb makes money even without you clicking it.

    Always liked the Amazon idea of looking deeper when the data and the anecdotes don't match.

    I disagree with the idea that we should just throw data at peoples' stories.

    Probably means we're missing some key part of the market (e.g Op's demographic)

    OP, can you share a little bit more about yourself/your circles?

    FB gets paid when you see an ad. You don't even need to buy anything. Companies pay a lot of money to just get their brand out there.

    Look at the mobile app stores. Top 25 in the gaming category spend at the very minimum a million $ a day in just FB ads.

      $1m a day each ? 🤔
