Shortly after the release of Jumbo Egg Hunt 2 I decided to try promoting it with ads on Facebook. After researching the possible outcomes, and analyzing the process and costs, I decided to set up three separate ads for this one app. This was my first ad experience on Facebook, but their process was very easy for me to understand and I was able to quickly set up targeted ads.
I only spent $22.36 but my ads had a combined campaign reach of over 90,000 in 12 days. The campaign reach amount is the number of unique users that saw the ad. The total number of ad impressions was over 190,000. I wish the CTR(click-through rate) would have been better, but considering my total amount spent, I’m still satisfied with the number of clicks received. I decided on having a small budget for each campaign since I was mainly using this as an experiment to test the waters of advertising on Facebook. I know some people absolutely avoid clicking on ads even if the product or service interests them. So there’s actually a good chance some people may have checked out the app without clicking on the advertisement.
I decided to post the graphs and data below for other independent app developers and/or anybody else that might be interested in advertising on Facebook. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me. I don’t disclose downloads/sales so please don’t ask about those numbers. Overall, I’m satisfied with my results, and I will consider setting up ads on Facebook again in the future. Well, its Mothers Day and I’m about the to meet up with my awesome mom & grandma so that’s it for this post. Happy Mothers Day to all the other wonderful moms out there!
