Facebook ads- custom audiences, scraping IDs & teespring- risky?

12 replies
Hi everyone,

Can people share their experiences of doing the above. I've seen conflicting advice as to whether this is worth doing or not as they don't permit ads which combine custom with Facebook. I have no interest in wanting to get my account suspended or banned, but obviously I can see the advantages if you can get away with it. In particular I know people have used this Social Lead Freak Tool.

Anyone share their experiences with this, or maybe a safer method of doing similar things?

          Hi.

          My $0.02 from selling Tee's on Teespring.

          Targeting needs researching for your design... i.e Lets talk Fishing

          Great T Shirt Design
          Who would it target? Males aged 30-65
          Country? I choose USA only due to large shipping costs for other countries
          Interests? I don't choose the broadest term 'Fishing' i select ultra targeted such as Fishing Reel, Fishing Line, Fishing hook,etc and then i choose celebrities in that niche that are from the U.S. I also add current Angling magazines to the list.

          In FB T&C's they say its ok to have a Custom Audience but you must have the targets consent to advertise to them, by scraping you don't.

          Play by their rules and you will succeed.... You just need to be extra clever about it.

          Good Luck

    It's against Facebook TOS and it can get your account banned. You may want to try using a dummy Facebook account when scraping or hire someone to do all the scraping for you...

    Doesn't have to be CA's... you can choose FB's own interest targeting and do extremely well. PLUS, it's more scalable.

    If you want to target your own customers or prospects list, then you can use CA's.

    I just saw this on my wall. So I guess it's the end of scraping UID's:

      seems other tools like Social Lead Freaks will get into troubles soon...

        Thanks all!

        Looks like whoever said to me it was safe was just trying to sell something.

        I have already ran ads targeting nterests so I already know the fundamentals.

          Has anyone tried to run a teespring campaign using something other than facebook ads such as google adsense? I am just wondering because I am tired of getting my ads account disabled on facebook just for the simple fact that I log on a different computer to place the ad.
