    I have been unsuccessful in getting my ads approved on facebook. The last decline I received gave this message.
    Code:
        * Please review the specific reason(s) for your ad's disapproval below. If you have further questions, we recommend reviewing our list of Common Ad Mistakes. You can also consult our Terms of Use and Advertising Guidelines for more information.
        * The content advertised by this ad is restricted. Per sections 8 and 9 of Facebook's Advertising Guidelines, this content is prohibited from being advertised on Facebook. Ads for this product, service or site will not be accepted in any form, and may result in your account being disabled.
    I read everything and can't figure out what is wrong with my ad or my site. There is another person with a very similar site (may be where I got the idea for mine) that has an ad running all the time. I looked everywhere and can't find a way to contact anyone from the ad department to find out what I need to do to be compliant. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Likewise, though I am not actively running a campaign at the moment.

    Facebook is a very very tough market to dominate. When college students like myself go on facebook we are usually not in the "purchasing" mode. We are there to talk to friends etc etc. Facebook is more of a networking platform. People on facebook that are looking to purchase something will usually check out the marketplace on facebook.... With that being said it's not entirely impossible to make a buck.

    Does facebook manually approve ads? The flyers were decent but the traffic was just terrible quality. Such uninterested users!

    Tip might be to market to girls or market dating / singles stuff to guys. That is why everyone is on fb anyways ;)

    Facebook is not even worth it. Once you get your ad approved, which takes 7 variations of the same ad and 10 days. You then have a good ad for about 2 days, then the same people see it over and over again.

    Its so hard to get a good CTR.

    As with any marketing campaign, it depends on whether you're targeting the right audience or not. I've run FB campaigns with extremely high CTR's (30%+) converting at almost 10%. These were not with CPA offers mind you, but I can attest to FB being a very profitable advertising platform if it is leveraged properly.

    An AM has been nagging me to get on FB ads. He says some are making an absolute killing.

    I'm not, but I found flipkart on facebook three and a half years ago. Now that has become the largest e-commerce website in India.

    Exactly the reason why I stopped my facebook campaign a year ago. Waste of money if you ask me. Google adwords is any day much better IMO!
