Facebook Ads are.. FRUSTRATING!!! /Rant

9 replies
I think Facebook has me on their naughty list for some reason.

My last ads took 12 hours to get approved, and now a whole 24 hours later, I'm getting ZERO impressions. I'm even bidding near their max recommended bid and still no impressions.

Is there any way I can call these people up and have one of them look at my account while I'm on the phone?

This is seriously frustrating. Anyone else having issues with them?

    No sorry.

    I would try creating another campaign and seeing if that fixes things, or keep raising your bid.

    Facebook can be very frustrating, but it is all part of the game learn to laugh it off and enjoy it.

  • Greedy is right it can be very frusterating but once the learning curve is over you are going to love your results. Keep testing and implementing new ads.

    It is quite frustrating. You have to experiment on multiple campaigns first. Also the competition is really tough so be prepared to bid higher.

    It's unusual, but it does happen eventually. I don't think it's because they have you on a "naughty list", since I've seen this happening to new advertisers.

    When it happened to me I tried to set up a bunch of campaigns for the same offer, but it didnt help. So, I just waited and after 2 days or so the campaign started running normally.

    For this reason, I'd say that your best bet is to wait. I know it's not the answer you were looking for, but I am afraid there isn't another solution.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    I guess one thing I have to learn in this biz is how to be patient. Traffic has since started to flow again, so I guess it's just a matter of waiting it out.

    That's frustration due to lack of patience. We all want things yesterday online. There's a couple things that could have happened.

    1.) Was it a weekend? They don't work reviews on weekends.

    2.) Their stats are not real time. They're delayed.

    Be patient grasshopper!

    It is frustrated, but unfortunately it is the way it is..
    You may need to raise your bid more (even though your at near the max recommended bid).. how is your targeting, is it a broad group or very fine?

    If you target your market and really narrow it down, it should be better no?

    When you are spending more money with them, your ads will get approved much more quickly.
