Clicking On Those Links!
Recently I experimented with advertising my Craft Show Sales web site on Facebook. I only got charged by Facebook when folks started clicking on those links.
Weaponizing My Click Strategy – Clicking On Those Links
My Facebook advertising experiment didn’t work. I ended up paying about $25 for “clicks” to a targeted audience. But I got no purchases.
But I did realize I could penalize companies I don’t like by clicking on their advertising links.
So every time I see a Chick-Filay or Homo Depot ad, I click on that fucker.
Maybe it’s petty. And perhaps it won’t have any impact at all. But just knowing that these asshole companies get charged each time I click on their ad, makes me happy.
And if hundreds of people joined me, it would increase the impact.
If you’re someone who wants to see targeted ads for things you like, this tactic isn’t for you. Because clicking on companies you hate, will make more of those ads appear. And less ads that you might care about.
Personally, I don’t purchase items by going through a social media advertisement. I feel like I’m being manipulated. So when something like this shows up in my feed:
I click the shit out of that link. Yes, it means I see a lot more photos of the Trump-with-a-goiter coin on my feed. But if enough people do this without ordering the coin, it will eventually go away!
So close! I have been doing a lot of work on the Knowledge is Key Shawl.
The final shawl will look almost as good as Michael’s.
But at the bottom, you can see I only have one small motif to knit before I bind off and finish this beauty.
