How to run affiliate product ads on facebook?

29 replies
Hello Friends,
I am still brand new with affiliate marketing,
created my first ads on facebook to promote some products that listed in click bank,
I created the ads and selected to create a form, which looks like to be as a landing page to request name . email from visitor before landing them to the final URL destination,
unfortunately, was disapproved and not corrected,
I sent several messages to facebook support, they reply very later, more than 24 hrs, plus not clear, message looks like robot messages or something copy / paste, not make sense as someone read my messages and answer accordingly,
However, it's over than 2 weeks now, and seems not to going to be solved,
the better option is to create a new account,
But, before I start and maybe done something by mistake and waste more time,
anyone that expert or well experiences can assist me how to start promoting affiliate products on facebook?
How to start? shall I create payment account first? or create the ads?
Promote with forms? how to avoid my ads account to be closed or banned,
Kindly advise the basic steps to place ads that could make high conversion rate at the same time to be appropriate and avoid trouble by mistake,
Thank you very much,

    Step 1 is ALWAYS read the Terms of Service and the rules. The answer to why
    your ad was not approved will be found there. Have you done that? If not, there is
    point in continuing or attempting to answer your questions until you do.

    The fact that your ad was not approved doesn't mean your account has been
    banned. You don't need to start another account. You need to create ads that
    comply with their rules. If you open another account and attempt to run the same
    ad you'll get the same result.

    Go read Facebook's information. If you still have questions, come back.

        You want short cuts to wealth. There are none.

        You have to read the rules. You have to learn the skills. You have to do the work.
        Everyone who has been successful on Facebook has done all that. Someone else
        mentioned that there are tons of instructional videos on You Tube. That's where I
        started. Go watch them.

    This is a very frustrating way to generate traffic. The best method would to build a Page buy likes to that page and market to the page... I never had much luck with ANY paid Facebook ads.... As I say that a good friend of mine made MILLOINS in the weightloss niche. He's retired and move to Thailand now...lol

    There are plenty of free videos and 'courses' on this topic inside of Youtube.
    If you got a few extra bucks and think that Facebook might be the best place to run ads, I suggest buying a first rate course specifically for this.

    While many will tell you can run ads on Facebook for mere pennies, there is a big learning curve here and it's best to invest in the training course now, and save yourself a huge loss.
    Or if you choose to go about doing the ads based on a few Warrior comments, prepare to spend the money learning the ropes and losing money on your ads.

    You probably broke one of their rules. I know Facebook doesn't like affiliate links, and they're very strict with their rules. So, make sure you read up on their terms of service, to avoid this problem in the future.

    Read the rules. Don't try to use FB Ads for anything spammy. Make sure what ever you decide to advertise with them adds value to the people you are asking Facebook to send for you.

    There could be a hundred or more reasons why Facebook blocked your ad or suspended your account. Unfortunately, they don't really tell you.

    My best guess is that you were promoting a product that was against facebooks terms of service. I only say that because a lot of Clickbank products could violate Facebook terms.

    My second guess is that your ad copy violated facebooks terms of service or was perceived to be spammy.

    We're you promoting a make money product?

  • Tsnyder is right: always check the rules first. Also, FB keeps changing its policies every now and then, so it's always best to check.

    Use the business manager for doing your ad campaigns since they have a dedicated team to approve ads through business managers and so the approval time is quicker.

    Regardless of the product or niche you are working on, this is the way a sales funnels should be (give or take a few elements, depending on your business)

    For niches that are allowed on Facebook:
    Ads > landing pages with an offer > Collect emails/leads > Nurture leads through email > Make offers and sell.

    Ad example: Buy TShirts Now 30% OFF

    For niches that are NOT allowed on Facebook:

    Ads that related to something you do (not directly) > landing pages with an offer > Collect emails/leads > Nurture leads through email > Make offers and sell.

    Product (not allowed on FB): Make money online Membership site

    Ad Example: Grow Your Business (later you can direct users to your membership site offer)

    Build your funnel first. Hope that helps. Best wishes.

        You never said you read their advertising tos. Did you?

        There r not that many reasons why they deny and they are clearly spelled out.

        For instance, no before/after photos; spelling mistakes.

        What r you going to do when u run afoul of the next platform's tos?

    Hi,
    I think you first need to "warm up" your account.
    If you have a Facebook page then you must do some posts on them, then " boost" them. After a few days then you start creating the real ads which you want. In that way you gain credibility with FB.
    Getting your ads disapproved multiple times may lead to your account getting blocked.
    And as others have suggested please read the FB ads guidelines.
    Thanks.

      I spent almost 3 weeks with this,
      it seems not going to work out,
      I will shift to look at solo ads instead of wasting more time with FB bla bla bla,
      will try solo ads and see how,
      thanks for all replies anyway,
      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11121128].message }}
      • Ahh ! Solo Ads sound Like Great Idea But Remember This Before Buying Solos ,Here is the Tips I can Give -

        [1] Always Use Double-Opt In to Build Your List : Keeping it super-simple when someone enters their email address to sign-up to your list they may be added immediately (single opt-in) or they may be sent an email confirmation they have to open, read and click to confirm they want to subscribe to your list (double opt-in).

        There are lots of reasons for this.

        a) For one, lots of people make up fake email address which might actually be someone else's real email address. I'm guessing that the real johndoe@gmail.com and anybody@hotmail.com are getting a hell of a lot of emails they didn't ask for.

        b) The second reason is that not every website makes it clear what you are signing up for. A website might ask you to enter your email address to get a free report but doesn't tell you about the email they will send you every day.

        All of this leads to spam complaints and that's a serious issue.

        The double opt-in system -- using an email confirmation -- helps get around this and protects you and your auto-responder company from getting on the wrong side of legislation.
        There is a downside .
        Not everyone -- even those who genuinely want to be on your list -- gets or opens, or clicks on the link in your confirmation email.

        In a nutshell...
        With single opt-in you can build a bigger list faster BUT have the additional risk of unhappy subscribers who may (or may not) complain and give you grief.
        And that -- my friend -- is why every man and his friend tells you to use double opt-in. But that doesn't make it a good (or profitable) business decision. The key is in testing whether single or double opt-in lists work best for you, your business and your subscribers.

        [2] You always start with a test. By buying a smaller Solo Ad (especially when dealing with a new vendor) to test their list, test your offer, test your follow-up and see if the your system is worth investing more time and money into.

        Sometimes the test will work well.
        Sometimes it won't work at all. This is where you have to think seriously about ditching your offer, ditching their list or ditching the entire idea. And -- more often than not -- you make a little, lose a little or break even.

        That's not bad at all.

        Because now you tweak your ad, and improve your Sales Funnel before re-testing and buying bigger Solo Ads.

        [3] Solo Ad Subscribers Are Less Responsive :
        Here's another quote:

        "When you get subscribers from a solo then they are most likely already on dozen of marketers list. Wouldn't these subscribers be very unresponsive for this reason?"

        There are two schools of thought here.
        The first school is that you have to go out there find raw, virgin lists of people who aren't on many lists and then you have a greater chance of standing out in their inbox.
        - Greater Chance of Click ,email read,email Notice
        The second school of thought is from the marketers who accept that we are all on a lots of lists. So your job is to find the lists with the subscribers most likely to be interested in what you have to say and sell.
        It's your job to find the lists that have people on them that (ideally) are already conditioned to clicking on links inside of emails and buying through those emails.
        [3] You Get Lots of New Subscribers and ZERO Buyers :This can happen because you've bought your Solo Ad from someone who has no buyers on their list. It's filled with freebie or tyre-kicker and voyeurs with no interest in buying anything.
        Maybe the vendor is in the Solo Ad business and has built a list purely for the sake of selling clicks or Solo Ads. The vendor buys and sells Solo Ads which isn't a scam because they are only selling you clicks and they are delivering the clicks; it's just that their list isn't very good
        quality.

        My Last Tips, Create A sales funnels - You can do with instabuilder 2.0,affilotheme or Thrive leads for WordPress Users for Non- WordPress Uses you can use instapage,leadpage or clickfunnels

    I don't put affiliate link directly in fb ad, because fb doesn't like it. Rather I put them in my blog post and then promote my blog post through fb ad, it works perfectly.

    * Have you create "Landing Page" or "Squeeze Page" or simply driving your targeted traffic to the owner's sales page.

    Never link your Clickbank affiliate link directly to the Facebook ads ,That will be dumb ideas.

    Maybe you have already found an answer for you question...but it not, Facebook has put out a good resource that covers all of the basics of their own platform.

    Google facebook . com/blueprint "Facebook Blueprint" you should see their free course...I've run several Facebook Ads successfully and I picked up many things from the course.

    Best of Luck
