    So here is a story of what I did and what happened to me in just 3 days...

    Day 1.
    After reading about some People making real money with clickbank I decided to give it a second chance. This time I decided to do some FB ads and trying to target some users that probably weren't being targeted before because of language barriers and countries.

    I setup a page that pretty much it redirects the user to my affiliate link, choose an image and created a banner.

    Da 2.
    My banner gets disapproved, I check the guidelines, I do some changes and after just a few minutes my ads start running. After just a few hours I make 40 dollars and my testing budget is topped at 25 bucks.

    Day 3.
    My banners are running and on this day I made over 170 dollars... Not bad taking in account that so far I've spent less than 40 dollars on FB ads.

    So I seems that I works... I decide to scale things up and I edit my target audience to add more countries and with a little more budget. I also discover that most sales are made at certain hours so I was going to pause and start the campaigns manually for a few days and see how it goes.

    But THEN everything went wrong. Facebook won't approve my ads although they were running before, I've tried making a bunch of edits and still I'm getting disapproved.

    I decided to move on and try something else... Now I'm waiting to get approved for a completely different ad and I'm starting a new journey.

    Gratz on the trial success! Just try to wiggle around a bit! Hopefully you'll get around FB.

    Good job and thank you for sharing. Not everyone has the heart to tell the successes and failures. Try again with facebook - You've only found out two ways that will get your ads disapproved but made money. Keep re-doing it and post up.

    Talk to some people in the Facebook section here and get some advice. Don't expect to be hand fed though.
    If your ads don't get approved try calling facebook support and complain. They are in it to make money too.

    This sounds interesting actually. When creating ads at Facebook, how much money do you have to deposit to begin? I guess you aren't able to just use a voucher?

    Thanks for sharing. Even I am relying heavily on fb ads and so far do not have any issues. Hope you find out some ways to get your ad approved.

    Hey that's awesome that you found something that works!

    FB can be pretty anal about ads I have legitimate fan pages and websites I like to promote but they'll still give me a big fat no ~_~ dare I say I enjoy Adwords more? :p

    Did you change the redirect? If not I'm guessing that's the problem

    Today I was able to create an ad that they approved (different product) and I already made 30 bucks with only 15 dls spent.

    I bought a very cheap ebook that shows a technique that almost guarantees an approved ad. I'm waiting to see if it works.

    A credit card is all you need.

    What do you want to know?

    It is very straight forward... Choose a product, create a landing or something similar, create a Facebook ad.

    There is plenty of info around.

    Nope.. Didn't change the redirect...

    But I found a cheap ebook about a trick to have almost any banner approved and I decided to buy it and test it... Today my ad was approved!

    So I'll keep testing and building and see if I can scale this up.
