In 2013, the online advertising revenue in United States has reached 3.1 billion and Facebook Inc. holds 7.4% of the market share (*3) next to Google Inc. and will be expanding around the world.
The Facebook advertising costs vary depending on the quality of the advertising content that optimization of creative has been important to maximize its effect. We think it is effective to repeat the comparative verification test by adding small correction of text and images to pursue the best creative.
Features of “ReFUEL4” (https://refuel4.com/)
The mechanism of “ReFUEL4” is that when companies input Facebook Advertising size, budget, advertising plan, and color taste of the “offer,” the creators around the world will create the advertising banner and videos in listed condition to submit. Without hiring the creators, you can visualize and check the effectiveness like “which ad creative is producing what kind of effect” on the management screen. Also we adopted pay-per fee structure that the cost is generated according to the actual CTR (*4), and this would significantly reduce the time and cost required to optimize such creative.
In addition, by registering to “ReFUEL4,” the creators will be free from the time and be able to get creative business around the world on the internet. This will lead to the creation of new business opportunities.
