Default Possible idea... narrower targeting...

Hi Mike,

My thoughts are that it would be better if you targeted specific industries of people who might want to build their own websites...

I'm not sure who... Family-run restaurants? Psychic healers? Life coaches? I'd have to do research!

That way, your pitch can be much more specific... (and in my opinion, more compelling)

A "back end" could be a "done for you" deal... Some will want to hire your web-building services because of your book! (They might get it and then think, "I don't have time"...)

You don't need to create the website yourself... Partner with a website building business, and take a commission for bringing them the business

Best wishes!

So, getting straight to the point:

I'm using facebook ADS to sell an e-book I wrote: "Build Your Own Website By Yourself Without Putting Up With Anyone".

The audience are women 45 - 64 years old. I find that women are more open minded. Is both for hobby and professional/business owner. The market is so small here in Portugal that I try to include both hobby and professional/business owner.

The ad is simply a sales letter in text + 1 e-book cover image.

SITUATION: Sometimes I sell at a profit, sometimes not.

The ad works to be sent a message directly in the Facebook Page chat I do not redirect to any landing page outside.

It's all done via chat only.

The Customer pays for the e-book by PayPal or another mechanism, and I send him the E-book in .pdf file through the chat. Simple as that.

And it has worked beautifully, no dramas. So far I've only had 1 refund where the person wrongly thought that the e-book was written with texts copied directly from Google.

The help I ask of you is:

Bearing in mind that sometimes I make a profit and sometimes I don't, it makes me believe that there is indeed some interest in the e-book, and I keep my faith in it.

But obviously I wanted it to be predictably stable with profit.

What do you think it can be done to change the situation?

Do you think this situation can be solved by changing just the copy or the image? The image is simply the e-book cover, I test different covers and backgrounds.

Do you think it would drastically change if I redirected people to an outside landing page?

I tested different markets here in Portugal. I test in English language to other countries. I tested many markets. I tested using emojis too.

I send below the copy and the image attached.

Thank you all.
