For those of you who are not advertising on Facebook already (and even if you are) and want to give it a try, now there is a completely free way to test the waters.

Update: We are now offering $100 to one lucky fan of our Facebook page each month. Simply “like” our page for more details.

Click here to enter our monthly $100 Facebook advertising coupon code giveaway.

Log into facebook and add the Visa Business Network App. Once added, Facebook will send you a coupon code with instructions on how to add the credit to your account.Perfect if you want to test the waters on facebook and perfect if you’re already spending a fortune with them. There’s more to PPC than just the big three :)

Seems like Alexia was WAY ahead of me finding this. Also, Master Mulley is running a competition for the best stats on a facebook campaign. Have a look!

    I added the Visa Business Network App but never got a email or a msg with the coupon. How long does it take to get the coupon code?

    Love the advice and the blog, good to see you back with a new post. What has been your experience with advertising on Facebook? To me it seems as if users would just tune out all of the banners/ads becuase people are so engaged in their social community. I mean banner ads are pretty much dead as a viable advertising platform as a whole these days.

    Don’t get me wrong, we still run huge online media campaigns with banner ads of all shapes and sizes for clients but they are definitely not nearly as effective as they used to be.

    Never really thought about about trying Facebook for advertising. Though I guess it is worth a shot if it’s free. It will make an intresting experiment at least

    Aren’t Facebook already syndicating Google Ads to an extent? I know if you type in any of my sites I’m advertising they’ll at least pop up under mails sent via Facebook?

    Thanks – Will give it a try, but I wonder given the stats I’ve seen on click through on FaceBook if I will get much for $100, but good to get a go for nothing. Cheers.

    Excellento ! $100 should get a nice few leads all right. I’ve never used FaceBook Ads, but I like the idea about being able to drill down to the demographics. Damien has a nice guide to it here : http://www.mulley.net/2007/11/21/how-to-advertise-on-facebook-a-perspective-from-ireland/

    John : I applied and got my confirmation almost instantly. You should get an email with the voucher code. Maybe you should remove it and try again. (sorry about 2nd post, feel free to merge them)

    @John, you don’t even need to fill out your profile. I got the mail within seconds of adding the app.

    @Organic SEO Consultant, I ahve found that the work well in some verticals and not as well in others. You just have to jump in and see.

    @Sally, You’re welcome. (was going to unlink your comment).

    @Janine, go for it! Damien’s competition is more than enough incentive!

    @Aisling, no, Google have nothing to do with facebook or their ad serving.

    @James, no probs but it’s not me that’s giving it away ;) Handy if you want to get some quick traffic to something or want to test a new affiliate offer.

    I love facebook adds as the ability to tighten in on a specific demographic is great for me. That said I was thrilled at a $100 coupon. But I have not gotten an email? I installed the applications, but no coupon code. How long does this take?

    Just started with my first Facebook ad two days ago. Although CTR is abysmal, that is not surprising considering that the ads are demo-targeted rather than keyword-targeted. But the good news is that they were still able to send me my maximum number of clicks per day, and the traffic has a much lower bounce rate than Google AdWords traffic.

    Hi,

    Once in a while I get these promotions, however I usually don’t use them since I always have the sensation that one will be prompt with requests to sign for this and for that.
    Maybe that’s why my promotions don’t work that well either :-)

    best regards,

    José

    Awesome. Just saved me $100.

    Another place to get a Facebook coupon is Godaddy. Order an eligible product and you get a $50 Facebook ad credit. I believe it’s only for new accounts though.

    I dont believe, these coupons work perfect. Instead, these are all big companies’ craps, with what they collect the datas of people… Free coupons in any case are used for non-targeted advertisements out of understanding…

    A hundred bucks is a nice tidy amount to test the Facebook waters, and see if you get any results…I’m game to give it a try. Although, I’ve heard that Facebook has been placing a lot of restrictions on their PPC marketers lately.

    I tried facebook advertising in August. For $8, I received 16 very targeted clicks; one of whom converted into a customer. The profit of that one customer was thousands of times greater than the investment.

    I got excited reading your article, only to be cooled off at the end with your update that the offer has ended. But I thank you for at least I learned of another way to get free advertising and I will now search for similar ways on Google (maybe Mastercard will be offering one soon, too)
