The best part about this is that you don’t even have to ever touch the actual product, nor do you have to spend a dime on manufacturing these products. They do all the work for you. You just upload the design, choose the items you want your design to be on, and they’ll handle the rest (i.e. manufacturing, payment, shipping, and handling, returns…).
Interesting, your CPC is high for sure. You’re operating in a competitive market, but the click price still seems inflated. The big thing for me with FB ads is paying for reach just never sits right with me – if you reach an extra 4000 people, so what? If no action is taken – a click for example, then what are you gaining from it? You want people to read your blog, the fact that the post that mentions the blog reached extra people isn’t that valuable for you. Sure, they may think of your blog next time but you can’t measure that. I always advise people to pay for actions.
There are entire books written on how to become a virtual assistant, so this job is definitely worthy of more research. My advice: Focus on one niche (I just hired Lisa Morosky of VA for Bloggers, for instance.) Also, reach out to potential customers directly and let them know what you can do for them instead of hitting up freelance web sites. Finally, you may want to consider resources such as AssistU, which provides training for up-and-coming virtual assistants.
Then predictive sites are for you. Introduced by the Chicago Board Options Exchange in 2008, binary options are financial contracts that let you earn money by predicting the rise or fall of financial assets. You can buy them at binary option brokers.
Another option is to do surveys. Like many other options on this list, you won’t make a living doing surveys, but you can earn cash, prizes or points towards gift cards. Here’s a few survey sites to try out. Note, survey sites, like mystery shopping, should be free to join.
I also recommend to not use the Audience Network placement – they include third party apps and websites that are outside of Facebook and usually don’t generate the results you want. What’s worse, you can’t control the context of those websites, so your ad might be showing up to the right audience but on a very strange piece of content.
For example, you may hope to draw more business to your kitchen store. Instead of just advertising that you have blenders for sale, you might experiment with things that people can make with your blender, such as a demonstration of how to make healthy smoothies or jazzy margaritas. This provides the consumer with more value than if you just say that you have a blender on sale.
YouTube’s video Ads are auto-play as well, both on the homepage and in the cheaper pre-video location. And they’re, if anything, harder to disengage with. With Facebook Video Ads you simply have to keep scrolling down whereas YouTube Ads have to be actively skipped or closed. So we’re talking about a very similar system, with a similar target market and, tops, a 100% increase in Reach for Facebook Video Ads over YouTube video Ads.
Facebook will split revenue from ads watched between all videos watched in a single session, determining the payouts by how long the viewer spends with each video. So, if you watched a one-minute video from Funny or Die and a four-minute video from Fox Sports with an ad in between, Funny or Die would get a fifth of 55% of the ad revenue and Fox Sports would get four-fifths of the 55% of revenue.
At last count, more than two billion people were using Facebook. And those users are highly engaged with the content posted on the network: More than 800 million people like something on Facebook every single day.
Something unique that MyPoints offers that most other similar companies don’t offer is the ability to earn cash back on some in-store purchases at select stores. Also, although their online store cashback rates aren’t the highest in the industry (ironically, Swagbucks beats them on several offers), do have special offers that other companies don’t have, such as a bonus to sign up for Amazon Prime.
