£10 Advertising Test

Advertising Clicks

I released a blog post yesterday regarding my advertising test between Google Ads and Bing Ads, but ex-AsOne team member Ben, posed the question, “Wonder what kinda results you’d get between FB ads vs. Bing?”

So I have compared Facebook, Bing, Twitter and Google, all for £10, and have a few charts that you can view to see clearly how they stacked up against each other.

The Data

Medium  Spent  Avg. CPC Impressions Clicks Avg. CTR
Facebook  £10.00  £0.17 85,000 60 0.048%
Twitter  £10.00  £0.12 2,861 82 2.940%
Google Ads  £10.00  £0.28 1,766 36 2.040%
Bing Ads  £10.00  £0.09 5,943 110 1.851%
TOTAL  £40.00  £0.16 23892.5 72 1.72%

To summarise

Bing is beating Google for everything apart from click through rate, but this comes down to cost. If you pay a lot on Google, you will see results, but this tends to be for the big boys.

Facebook and Twitter ads are seen by a lot of people, but don’t really turn into visits.

Obviously the results would be different for every website, and each month, but this was just a quick test to show the major differences and that your thoughts that Google would bring the best results could be quite wrong. Although, it is still worthy of having a presence on Google, so don’t quickly move all of your money over to Bing. Create a marketing strategy, then trial and test it.
