    Ok guys, I'm on my way to start experimenting with Facebook PPC and I have a question:

    Which account to use for Facebook ads?

    Create completely new? Use a fake aged (1 year account) or my legit personal account?

    I've heard rumors that sometimes FB goes crazy and disables legit accounts for no reason if you are trying to do Facebook ads.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    You need to have a strategy depending on what you will be doing with FB PPC. If you wanna do 100% whitehat, legit product campaigns use a legit account.

    Examples of legit campaigns, which FB loves and you wont find any issues with them ever. -

    However, if you are looking to promote CPA offers like Email Subs or Bizopps, FB Ads team hates those ads and there is a very high chance that you wont get your ad approved.

    You need to build a Special Legit Landing Page for it which you need to get approved and then tweak it a bit to drive all users to your offers.

    In this strategy, sometimes FB will disable your account because they just hate CPA campaigns, since end of the day 99% CPA is dirty.

    I dont know any specific reasons on how they decide this, there is no specific algo and this process is entirely manual and depends on the mood of the FB staff who is doing the periodic review of your account.

    So depending on what you gonna do, decide on what type of accounts you will need.

    Thanks indianbill007.

    I'm thinking of promoting PPC -> FB fanpage welcome tab (vote style) -> CPA(email/zip submit).

    Or PPC -> vote style landing page (my site) -> CPA(email/zip submit).

    If you are doing CPA, then I would suggest NOT to do a fan page cause it will be a very risky proposition.

    Cause if FB takes down your Fan Page, all your investment is lost.

    Best way would be to build an LP and go around it.

    OK, the latest update:

    FB disabled my personal (4 years old) account for Suspicious Payment Activity after 24hours.

    I used paypal as a payment method. did a few testing campaigns.


    Very disapointed. Any chances to get my account reactivated?

    Drop and email to disabled@facebook.com and they will ask you to follow some steps to get your account back.

    Make sure you send the email with your registered FB email.

    In future, when you are testing ads, make sure you talk to your account manager before you make payments. If you are spending good volumes or plan to do so, FB has a account manager for you, so such payment issues wont come.

    Tell her you have a good ad budget, so she can leverage her bandwidth for you :)
