    guys i am having a big time problem to advertise email submits offers on
    FB, i tried 5 different ads this week with a nice relevant picture and some
    good content not some something that sounds like scam and all my ads got
    disapproved, wtf??
    i contacted FB about this and this is the reply that i got:

    As part of our ongoing efforts to show users the most relevant content across the site, we're continuing to make both quality and feedback increasingly significant factors in which ads are actually served to users. We've received significant negative feedback about ads promoting free offers which, in reality, are not free to the user. This includes offers requiring users to sign up for surveys, promotions or purchases, or participate in extensive "testing" before receiving the advertised reward or prize. We take this negative feedback very seriously. As a result, we're no longer accepting ads that don't disclose the true requirements for receiving an offer.

    As noted in section 8 of the Facebook Ad Guidelines, "Prices, discounts, and free offers: Ads cannot be deceptive or fraudulent about any offer made. If an ad includes a price, discount or 'free' offer the ad must clearly state what action or set of actions is required to qualify for the offer". Advertising is not permitted on Facebook where the business model or practice is deemed unacceptable. Some business models and practices that may violate this policy include unclear billing or participation practices. Ads promoting deceptive free offers are in violation of this guideline and run contrary to Facebook's overall advertising philosophy.

    Thanks for contacting Facebook,

    what do you say guys?
    any solution?

    Their policy is pretty clear, so I'm not sure what you're asking. If you really want to continue running free offers just cloak the destination urls. ;)

    bro good luck trying to get good targeting on a facebook ad, apparently they are rediculous when it comes to running an ad. I tried running a fat loss supplement/review site a while back, and for 3 days i tried everything. The only way that they allowed it was, just stupid, you cant target fat people or people with weight problems or specific groups of people because its defamatory or biased or prejudice. Fb are a bunch of twats. sorry i get all riled up about FB.

    The concept is pretty simple.

    Show FB reviewers one landing page and show your customers another. You can grab the reviewer's IP when they check your ads, or just switch up the destination url (via a redirect or your tracking script) after the ad is approved.

    As far as getting "free" offers into your ad copy, it isn't going to happen.

    i dont get it man, can you give me a sample?
    also, if i change the url of the ad after it gets approved, they will review my ad again right?
    i dont think they will let this kind of change to go published without they to check it

    You can change it pretty easily.

    I assume you're using T202 or some kind of PPC tracking software right? If you aren't, you need to start.

    Here's what you do:

    1. Setup your redirect to go to a landing page that is within FB's advertising TOS.
    2. Wait until the ad is approved and live.
    3. Go back into your tracking script and change the destination url on that redirect.
    4. Voila! You've changed the destination url without resubmitting the ad.

    If you get caught you might lose your account, so don't say I didn't warn you. Getting another account is easy enough though. Good luck. ;)
