ATTENTION: FACEBOOK ADVERTISERS
How this cold-traffic Facebook campaign pocketed $7.06 for every $1 spent by targeting secret interests.
Struggling to get your Facebook ads running profitably?
My weird discovery will surprise you.
For the past few years I've used Facebook ads to promote a wide variety of things. From t-shirts to affiliate offers to now mainly my own digital products.
Facebook ads are still my most profitable paid traffic source, but back in the days it used to be a lot easier than it is now.
There was always competition, but not like today.
What happens when 10+ million advertisers compete with you for the same audiences?
It drives up your ad costs, devours your ROAS and makes it increasingly difficult to run profitable Facebook ad campaigns.
Increasing ad costs are a direct consequence of the ever growing number of Facebook advertisers.
More than 10 million according to a recent count.
The competition amongst advertisers drives up the bids for ad impressions in Facebook's ad auction.
Exactly how they like it.
More reach + more competition equals more profits.
For Facebook that is.
In the beginning it was not that bad but over time my ads became more and more expensive.
To the point where I was forced to turn off campaigns because they were only costing me money.
I had to find a solution first, instead of throwing more money into a leaking bucket.
So I started digging.
Guess what I found?
Facebook buries interests. There are actually thousands you could be using.
These hidden interests are more targeted and the audience contains fewer people whom Facebook incorrectly sees as interested.
Here's what I did:
I removed the "public" interests from my targeting and added these hidden ones.
Then I also layered these to force Facebook to show my ads just to the people in my target audience that shared more than one hidden interest.
Finally I excluded all my website visitors to make sure the campaign would reach 100% cold traffic.
The results were undeniable.
By using these hidden interests, my campaign reached a 706% return on ad spend.
Meaning, I made $7.06 for every $1 spent. To cold traffic.
Even after scaling the volume, the campaign still banked $4.80 using this hidden interest technique.
That's when I realized that the key to turning Facebook ads into profits, is targeting untapped audiences.
When you target interests with low competition (because hardly anyone knows they exist), you drastically slash your costs and improve your ROAS.
That means you can make more money from the exact same ad spend.
And use the extra profits to buy more ads!
So how do you unearth the 1000's of hidden interests that Facebook is trying to bury?
Facebook has a backdoor that gives access to more targeting data.
Everyone knows Facebook Ads Manager. Us marketing folks use it to create our ads and setup targeting.
But there's another entrance to Facebook's targeting options.
This one is much less known.
Facebook's Marketing API, created for software developers.
I discovered that through this API you can get access to many more interests than just the handful that are auto-populated inside Facebook Ads Manager.
And while they aren't suggested, you can enter them into Facebook Ads Manager when setting up your targeting.
Just like any other interest.
The only way to access the thousands of interests that Facebook hides, is learning how to code or...
with a tool that can see under the surface!
Uncover 1000's of hidden interests you can use to run more profitable Facebook ad campaigns.
This easy-to-use software lets advertisers like you search 1000's of hidden interests via Facebook's API - in seconds!
So you can:

Thanks to privacy initiatives (like iOS updates), interest targeting is now your best bet.
Future-proof your targeting by relying less on the algorithm.
For years, marketers have increased their reliance on Facebook's algorithm by leveraging lookalike audiences.
Or even giving Facebook full control by using broad targeting.
But any algorithm is only as good as the data it is fed.
Recently privacy initiatives, such as ITP and the iOS updates, have had a major impact on Facebook's ability to collect cookie data on websites outside of their ownership.
And as a result, using targeting options that require this data now leads to higher costs that eat away your profits.
The good news is:
Interest targeting is unaffected by all of this.
Because Facebook largely infers interests from user behavior within their own platform, such as: profile information, page likes, groups and the content users engage with.
Interest-based targeting is what once attracted millions of advertisers to Facebook.
And where they're now fleeing back to, to get the lowest costs and highest returns.
My target audience is extremely niche and using Facebook's limited suggestions just wasn't cutting it. The amount of hidden interests I found through InterestExplorer were in the hundreds. I layered these and the results have been outstanding!

Yes, you get all future software updates and new features free for life.
... and answers to other questions:
Yes, whenever Facebook makes changes or updates to their data we'll update our software. We also add new features or make improvements to existing features based on user feedback. Updates are always included and free.
InterestExplorer supports all 43 languages that Facebook supports in their API. The default language is English, because most interests are available in English. Select any of the other Asian, European of African languages to find hidden local interests.
Most tools don't have access to the same Facebook API, because developers need to get explicit approval from Facebook to use it. Also some other tools store interest data, which means interests might not be available anymore for targeting. InterestExplorer presents more interests for the same searches and always checks if interests are available right now. It's without a doubt the best solution out there, we've tried them all.
Absolutely. We offer a 30 day "no questions asked" money back guarantee.
To use our search tool that uncovers hidden interests, you don't have to connect your Facebook account.
No, absolutely not. We've built InterestExplorer in accordance with Facebook's terms of service and use just their official API's. Facebook developers that want to publish apps using this functionality, need to pass Facebook's strict app approval process which includes a manual review by one of Facebook's employees. InterestExplorer passed this process and is fully approved by Facebook.
