Have your account been blocked by Facebook for joining and posting to groups?
Have your account been reported as fake?
In late time Facebook change a lot in their rules and algorithm.
I see everyday that a lot of accounts are wasted because of this, and I see the need to show and help you how to save your account from this.
First let me tell this, Facebook advertising to Facebook groups is the best targeted advertising on the net and it’s free.
Problem starts with a lack of information or knowledge about advertising, and particularly Facebook advertising.
User experience is now 110% important to Facebook, and in my experience with users of Total Auto Poster most accounts are being blocked because of that.
What is user experience and what even that means?
Every post you made on Facebook has option for review. So every post is on constantly monitoring from Facebook. If you collect more negative feedback from other users, your account will be blocked. That means, if you advertise your ad to some group and other users report you for spam, you are done, your account is blocked.
So you need to pay attention in what groups you are posting your ad.
In advertising you need to pay attention on every detail in your ad, and you need to think about people who will see your ad.
Maybe you want to provoke people with your ad, everyone want that, and we all know that kind of ad works the best, but because of provoking you get a lot of people angry, pissed, even sad(I know, you will say ‘Who cares’ – answer is simple, FACEBOOK CARES).
Facebook constantly working on new ways to give people a value, to keep them safe from inappropriate content.
Until year ago, and earlier you didn’t need to pay attention to that. You could write what ever you want and post it to groups no matter is your post welcome there or not. You didn’t need to care about other people reporting you from spam, because your account would not be blocked, only link you have posted would be marked as spam, and that was not worry too because you had a lot of shorteners where you could create new link.
And what Facebook did? He blocked 99% of shorteners, and still blocking. I personally created new shortener, with new domain, for Facebook unknown. As soon as I posted it on Facebook just for test on my wall, it was not even ad, just clear link, domain was marked as spam and that was ‘good buy’ to shorteners.
Of course, we stopped using shorteners but still continuing with same mistakes.
In every activation email for Total Auto Poster, beside credentials for poster I would send links to Facebook advertising rules and guidelines, but unfortunately 99.9% of users never read them.
That is your first mistake in Facebook advertising. Yes, I know, it worked before, no matter what you wrote or what kind of picture you put in your post it worked, and that rules were there too, and no one were blocked.
Key word in this is ‘It worked’ – PAST TENSE
It is not working any more and it’s important that before you start advertising on Facebook be sure that you are following their rules.
First rule that I have learned from Facebook is that you can not put image which has more than 20% of text on it.
If you want to use word ‘Facebook’ in your ad it has to be written with capital: ‘Facebook’ and need to be same size as other text.
You can not use Facebook logo for your ad.
This rule is obvious but from experience need to be mentioned, you can not post your ad in groups where it is not allowed, and you can not post your ad with Total Auto Poster to group where it says that you can not use poster or any other automated tool.
This is from Facebook Terms:
‘We respect other people’s rights, and expect you to do the same.
1. You will not post content or take any action on Facebook that infringes or violates someone else’s rights or otherwise violates the law.
2. We can remove any content or information you post on Facebook if we believe that it violates this Statement or our policies.
3. We provide you with tools to help you protect your intellectual property rights. To learn more, visit our How to Report Claims of Intellectual Property Infringement page.
4. If we remove your content for infringing someone else’s copyright, and you believe we removed it by mistake, we will provide you with an opportunity to appeal.
5. If you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights, we will disable your account when appropriate.
6. You will not use our copyrights or Trademarks or any confusingly similar marks, except as expressly permitted by our Brand Usage Guidelines or with our prior written permission.
8. You will not post anyone’s identification documents or sensitive financial information on Facebook.
9. You will not tag users or send email invitations to non-users without their consent. Facebook offers social reporting tools to enable users to provide feedback about tagging.‘
This is from Ads Policies, from prohibited contents:
‘Ads must not constitute, facilitate, or promote illegal products, services or activities. Ads targeted to minors must not promote products, services, or content that are inappropriate, illegal, or unsafe, or that exploit, mislead, or exert undue pressure on the age groups targeted.‘
If you are in some money making program, you can not post your ad like: “Earn 100000$ for month” or similar, because you can not guarantee for that figure (your lines need to be accurate 100% without small letters in contracts), you need to find a way to attract your new clients, associates, affiliates but with realistic approach, and by that I don’t mean that you decrease your figure like “Earn 1$ for month” you can not promise even that, no matter how good your program is, this sentence is not right nor true.
Beside your text and image in your ad Facebook also follow your link and checks the web page you are promoting. That web page need to be with Facebook rules and policy too.
Do you now understand what are you doing wrong in Facebook advertising?
Advertising is not simply posting on Facebook walls, pages and groups. It has to have some sense, and you need to learn and read little bit before you start with your advertising.
You can be mad on Facebook as much as you want but
as first it is their website and they are making the rules,
and as second they are right.
