    Hi,

    I'm trying to advertise a clickbank ebook (fitness) on facebook but all of my ad versions (i tried 5 versions so far) got declined. Fb always refers to their advertisers guidelines chapter 3, 13 and 14....but I have no clue, what i should edit....

    Anyone here got the same problems and got them solved? Is clickbank resp. the ebook the source of this problem?

    Bests,
    Wini23

    I tried to promote another ebook (financial) but the ads got also declined. I think it's the kind of landing pages which they don't like @ facebook....

    90% of ads get declined. You just need to keep creating ads and hoping that one of them works. So just create like 5 at time and maybe one works... maybe it wont..

    Thx 4 input folks.
    I tried with the financial ebook 3 different ad copies but get also declined.
    But i tried to promote one of my own landing pages (no ebooks or stuff like this) and get in! ;)

    Have anyone here tested to paste a link to a lp which sells "legit" products and after the ad gets approved redirect the link to clickbank?

    Maybe I should try this, because it seems not very beneficial to me to build a lp for a clickbank ebook and link the traffic after they click the buy button to the original clickbank lp...

    Just tell Fuckbook to fuck off. I had periods where i liked them, but frankly i don't have the time or energy to get 1 in 5-500 ads approved anymore. I mean spend time messing with ads and lps, get disapproved, rinse, repeat, disapproved, rinse, repeat, test, see weak roi... I finally decided it made no sense, actually, it no longer made any sense at all. Especially when you see Fuckbook covered in gambling ads and the old "make $5k from Google" crap. I mean how the fuck did those get in?!

    I fucking hate Facebook, their double standards, lack of consistency and stupid review process. :D

    call me a skeptic but that makes me a little questionable on the validity of the rest of your post.

    Thx 4 your input.
    I've made the experience, that social media traffic won't buy anything - so I thought that an eBook will rather sell than any "legit" products...but I will try to advertise ringtones....

    Bullshit. You can direct link - when creating the ad just make sure the terms are clearly stated, e.g. if it was a CPA offer for something "free" state the requirements.

    Say it was for a free trial of Acai Berry and they charge you after the first month if you don't request a refund.

    Example ad:

    Title
    Photo
    Sign up for a one month free trial of Acai Berry. You can cancel anytime before your one month free trial is over.

    Please note, this ad may or may not work.

    Status report:
    My first ad (no affiliate network landing page, not an english ad & lp) is running in facebook.
    The 2 ebooks from clickbank were still declined (i've tried 5 ad versions with no.1 and 2 versions with no.2). I've also opened a new subdomain for redirection of one ad but the ad gets also declined. Perhaps I stick it with clickbank & fb now... :confused:

    At last I have created 2 ads for a ringtone site but they get also declined (okay, I have not mentioned the subscription fee 4 the ringtones ;) ). Maybe I try for the ringtones a few more ads.....but I must admit:

    The advertising guidelines of fb SUXXXX!

    My conclusions after advertising on facebook for 2-3 weeks now:

    • You can promote everything on facebook without getting your ads rejected as long as you don't promote ebooks.
    • If you promote ebooks, they must be serious (otherwise your ads get declined).
    • It doesn't really matter if you direct link to your merchant or not.
    • You can get cheap CPC rates if you keep on optimizing your ads (like on adwords).
    • After about 400 clicks I must say: Facebook users don't buy anything... I haven't made a conversion so far!!
    I keep on testing if there is something which works - but until now you should better advertise using AdWords than social media...

    700% of all ads get declined on FB. Don't waste your time.

    I don't understand how anyone can make money with FB PPC ads with prices they have. Adwords is 3 times cheaper

    IMO, It's very hard for your ad to be approved.

    The problem is not the PPC (or CPM) price and not the approvement of ads - the problem is the conversion rate. FB traffic just doesn't seem to convert. I have not managed to get a single conversion by FB ads yet. That is really wicked...

    Perhaps I should ask Shoemoney about how he managed it to get money with FB ads. ;)

    I got all my campaigns approved 100%. you can redirect links you are promoting. :) I also bid for as low as $0.02 with high impressions. of course I get low CTR, but it's worth it when they buy my product that costs from $37 to $999. don't give up on FB ads. It's a good way also to brand your product. :)
