Best way to create a new Facebook ads account after disabled.

14 replies
My Facebook ads account was disabled and I spent a year trying to get it back. It didn't work. A few questions:

1. Do you recommend getting a second account or is this too sneaky?

2. How do I get a second account? With a new email? Can I make up a name? Should I use a friend's account?

3. Can I use a different credit card but still use my name on it?

Any help would be much appreciated.

      I don't suggest trying any of those ideas on your list. Next, they'll ban your personal account.They have incredible algorithms and other ways to cross check a multi-tude of things you never thought of - and relentlessly getting better.

      So, you've basically received the kiss of death. The good news? There's dozens of other avenues, when one door closes many more open. You just have to get a little more creative now.

      Account was disabled because it's a fitness site and FB hates anything that has to do with weight loss. There were testimonials in ads but they didn't say "Results may vary" and they used numbers like "lost 20 pounds" from real members.

      Brent, why bother even commenting if you have no idea what's going on. Like none. I know the FB policies but just didn't realize that "weight loss" websites had different guidelines.

        Thanks, Niche Man...

        Any suggestions of other "doors"?

        Twitter hasn't worked for me.
        Adwords hasn't given me a great ROI.

        FB was so good and numerous people have who didn't think they were violating TOS but were banned just started another account and all worked out fine.

        I very much like playing by the rules that's why I asked.

          If you have a girlfriend/wife, use theirs, but don't login from your house (or use a proxy). Even see if your mom or dad will let you use theirs or open an account for you. lol

          Also, if you google facebook go, you can fill out a form and someone will actually call you from facebook about starting an ads account. Even facebook business manager or whatever they call that for agencies.

          The bottom line is, as someone already suggested, find other ways to promote your product.

          So many people who crush it on facebook, but ONLY facebook are in for such a rude awakening when they see the pink message at the top of their ad manager page saying "your account has been flagged for unusual activity."

          When it comes to traffic, don't ever put your eggs in one basket.

          Try as many networks and platforms as it takes for you to not have to rely on Facebook at all.

            Yep, I concur. FB can be really a great tool but there are still many who make a great Living online without it

          If you're just talking pay per click, have you tried Bing Ads? But the silver lining to this story is it forces you to expand your thinking.

          However, the immediate avenues you should take is the multi-tude of Free and almost free ways to market your site or product. Here's one of many articles available that should spark some ideas.

          63 Ways ( and almost free ways) to market your business
          !

          Some are better than others and a few are somewhat hokey. But don't just stop there. That's where average people stop or give up!

          I discovered the real benefit comes when you take extra time and effort to zero in on the spirit from which the ideas are created. This opens the door to you coming up with your own unique ideas. That should be your ultimate goal. This should get you started ... which is often the hardest part for most people.

          Good Luck.

              The best way to start up a new business manager ad account is to do it through the Facebook Go program - https://www.facebook.com/business/go

              That way you can work with a rep to set up your new account - you only have to commit to spending $750 in the first month. The reps tend to be pretty motivated to start up accounts and to work with you to get them going.

              I have done this before with an account in your niche that was disabled for unknown reasons, and it worked perfectly well. I've done it for other clients too, and never had an issue with the new business accounts. Just use your month and work with the rep to avoid any potential issues with the TOS in the future.

  • If you definitely want to use Facebook ads, then try opening a new account.
    Just be careful when you are setting up a new account.
    Don't open it and instantly start advertising. Get some friends first, don't use the same ad, the same website or the same product.

    Anything that was used on your old account should not be used on the new one.
    And of course, read their TOS which obviuously you did not the first time.

    I would personally contact them and ask them to re-instate your account.

    If they don't want to, I suggest you just move on. There is way too many places that you can market online and you can use others pay per click companies like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Twitter.

    Facebook has been getting ridiculous these past few months. They're banning 80% of new accounts regardless of the content or ads. Regardless if they are clean and meet their ToS to the T.

    I've created over 500 accounts in the past 6 months, and I've learned a lot about how they work and what they look for. There's a lot of different things you can do to optimize your chances of being successful. You have to warm the account before you move it to the real ads.

    Start with Page Likes at 10-20$ a day for 1-2 weeks. The objective, is two make sure you have 2 billing cycles, and a $250 billing threshold. It takes about $150 or more to achieve that, but it's well worth it. Once you've reached that point, you can move onto "clicks to website". Doing so before will almost always get you banned. Even at this point, don't expect that account to last more than a couple weeks, depending on the type of ad you're running. Two weeks is more than enough to make a couple thousand if you're spending $100 a day on a well converting offer with a decent roi.

    You also need to create the account using a VPS, and a different one each time. There's also a lot of steps to go through so you don't have to phone verify each account, but I'm not going to go into that on a public forum. If you want, drop me a line with any questions, and I'd be happy to give you a little more insight.

      This seems to be a fast growing hot topic around the web in the past few months. I've had many clients come to me with the problem. I personally have no answer. But I do have a hunch.

      • Facebook is performing a clearing out process of small marketers.
      • They want to encourage more marketers who qualify to work with their Ad Reps.
      If they see you're not spending the minimum - beware, you may see the dreaded/ZERO Tolerance "Your Account has Been Flagged" pink banner across your FB ad page. Thus, forcing you to seek help from their friendly Ad Rep who'll help you get back in Facebooks good graces if you promise to spend a minimum of $X Dollars per week. (Gotcha).

      As for the small marketer, if you can't or don't want to invest their minimum, they don't want you anyway. That's becoming the new reality.

      I doubt if they'd ban a fortune 1000 company if they did the same things most of the small marketers who were banned supposedly did (which most don't even know) and of course FB doesn't have the time to inform them, because sending an email would take too much time - a whole 3 seconds (eyeroll).

      The majority of banned advertisers don't know exactly what they did (other than not spend enough money, IMO).
