Spending 2-6K per day on Facebook for months ... than SLAP!

    My partner and I sell a legit diet/fitness book (a physical hard cover book) that
    shows people the exercises that get them "the most bang for their buck."

    We promoted this on Facebook for 6 to 7 months with no issues.

    We started to scale up ... and once we hit the 5K+ per day in ad spend -- we
    were spending that for 6 weeks or so -- Facebook disabled our account.

    We've been down for 2 months.

    I started digging ... and found out how to make new accounts, new IP's, new
    billing, cloaking , etc.

    My question is ... has anyone on BHW gone through these steps before?

    Just seems like so many pieces ... and I'm not to much of a "tech guy" ... I'm
    more into writing sales copy ... so this is over my head.

    Would love to talk some more about this for those who have experience.

    I'd compensate you of course.

    Thank you!

    I have no idea?

    I seriously do not.

    The only thing I can find is that we were part of FBooks crackdown on diet/health offers?

    Sasha this is why I was looking into "BlackHat" stuff ... and cloaking.

    From what I can tell this would help me get around the diet/health offer restrictions ... of course till we
    got shut down again (then I'd have to start this process over).

    I will say that the email they sent me was that we were running ads against their guidelines.

    But these were the EXACT same ads, same images, same landing pages, same captions that we've ran for
    months.

    I'd look for a good Cloaker if I were you. You should be able to afford it considering the ammount you're spending.

    Facebook don't easily catch up sites with Diet ads, someone might have report it or they decided to do a sweep today and discovered your site and ads account promoting a diet/fitness site which is against their TOS.

    You can find a cloaker that can change ip and stuffs within hours so as for facebook not to notice. Seriously, i have not used the cloackers before. But other members can help you here. Goodluck
