I need advice from more experienced affiliate marketers. My facebook ads account got flagged back in November 2014 and I can't use it since. I contacted Facebook support twice, provided all the info and a detailed description. I received one standard reply telling me they'll look into it. I didn't get any further replies since. It's been five months, so I think it's not going to happen. I toyed with Facebook ads mainly because of Teespring and some ViralNova clones. I have no experience in affiliate marketing but I want to learn more about it. My questions are: 1. How big of a disadvantage is it that I can't use Facebook ads for my affiliate marketing campaigns? 2. Can you recommend another paid traffic source that is beginner friendly?
