Would anyone have any experience running paid ads through Facebook for Therapists or is this generally frowned upon? You don't really see many ads for Therapists, Counselors, Psychologists online and was wondering if these types of professions are restricted from online marketing.

Any insight on this?

    You can run any kind of ads on Facebook to any niche, as long as they are within their guidelines. They are very strict when it comes on to certain claims like "get rich schemes".

    You just need to research your audience - their pain points, desires etc., and craft your message to meet their needs.

    In other words, you can't market to everyone. You need to find that particular group of people who are looking for what you have.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Facebook (as well as Google) has very strict rules in terms of ads in the health niche, so it's not that easy to promote your service in such way (not saying it's impossible).

    Of course you can run that type of ad on Facebook and elswhere.


    It all really depends on how you ad copy was. If it's something spammy promising an imaginary result then yeah, Fb won't tolerate that BS.


    If the ad copy was well made and the service is actually legit, then you don't have anything to worry about. Been there, done that!

    Of course there are ads on Facebook for Therapists etc... the reason your not seeing them is that you're not part of a targeted audience to have these types of ads delivered to your news feed.

    However, there is a technique to find who's servicing ads without having to see them in your newsfeed.

    Find pominate fan pages in the area of your interest.. go to the left-hand side of the page and at the very bottom you'll see "info and ads"... click it, if they have any ads currently running you'll be able to observe them as part of Facebook's new Terms of Service (TOS) of being transparent with ads currently running on the platform.

      Its not forbidden , But its sensitive to Facebook policy , you have to choose the ad copy image and choose the words , exclude forbidden or sensitive words , don`t promise a definite period of treatment or a definite results !
      note : that is for ad copy and the landing page also

    Given the fact that FB ad rates are GOING UP like CRAZY, I suggest you run a content-based lead generation campaign on FB

    This is one of the few remaining DECENT ROI paid ad methods left on FB

    I haven't done it but I'd assuming it would be very strict. You would need to ensure the landing page was very professional and legit.

      Guys who have something to say about everything,
      really have nothing to say at all.

      Hope the Ban teaches you a lesson.\

    Any ad is OK as long as its legal and within Facebook's guidelines. Just try it and see if it will be rejected by facebook or not. And afterwards, to see if you will be getting some leads from it. Facebook does not penalize you if you post a wrong ad. It will just be rejected or you will be requested to make some changes; that's all.
