Teespring+Facebook "Name" campaign secret??

34 replies
Ok,

Someone has to know how to advertise their Teespring campaigns using "Name" targeting with Facebook. SOMEONE is banking HUGE right now!

It seems they have A LOT of "Name" campaigns running right now and banking huge money!

Seems to be only 1 person as ALL the name campaigns I have found all have the same wording on the campaigns.

HOW ARE THEY DOING IT??? They are using Facebook as they have a huge amount of "likes".
I have tried everything to run a "name" campaign and all are failing.


PLEASE HELP!!!!!! lol

NOT like anyone would reveal the secret anyway. Worth a shot!

    Last time I read somewhere else, targeting with name isn't allowed anymore on Facebook. But if you want to try it, you can use Facebook graph search scraper. One of them is Ulead Pro.

    Perform a search on FB to find people with specific name who live in the US, and scrape the result with Ulead. Then upload the result on your FB ad account

      It is still being done. Someone is banking HUGE. I know how to scrap etc.. I'm wondering how they are bypassing Facebook security and getting their campaigns to go active. I tried many techniques with no success.

      Good design and targeting is a must to succeed with Teespring.

    Facebook doesn't like this and has banned many advertisers for using practices that single out users with specific self identifying targeting like a "name". I wouldn't try to build a business around this loophole especially since Facebook has already slapped many users for doing this

      dunno, is it possible to edit a post once the ad is approved? I wouldn't try either unless with a different account, ip etc. I've been pretty curious myself though...

        It is, but any changes will require re-approval. This re-approval is automatic, but FB peeps do random spot-checks and, AFAIK, a custom audience with people with a common name does raise flags.

        I'd stay away from this. In fact, I wouldn't recommend anything that has to do with scraping.

        You might get a few campaigns through, but once FB catches up, you're pretty much screwed.

            I made over 100K in profit on the name gigs before FB started slapping us and banned two of my accounts. An account manager from FB (I know quite a few people in senior roles at FB) told me it was due to 1) the scraped audiences and 2) simply targeting a name which is no longer allowed. Accounts unbanned? Not a chance, even with my contacts.

            The gig is over, do what I did and move on to the next honey jar.
            Nicoli I have a question about the multiple accounts.
            I too have a second account, verified by phone (fiverr =) and has an Ad Account setup.
            BUT how do I add a payment source to it without using my own CC or Paypal account (and thus connecting the two together by name).

            I want to use that 2nd account (totally fake name and not similar to mine what so ever) as my Teespring, scraper, plugin usage account so that if anything goes weird and it gets banned I don't lose my own personal profile. BUT adding that CC to the account would essentially put my actual name down in some respect, right? If it gets the slap, would FB dig deep, find out that the CC is under my name and ban my original FB profile too? Or is that paranoid thinking lol?

            A FB coupon only works once... and visa vanila/gift cards or prepaid cards don't work right?

              Don't bother, they will still smash you. Trying to get yourself an advertising account with a fake name is gonna be hard, using same merchant account, impossible and running name gigs again, pointless. Sorry to be blunt, but that's the way it is.

                Don't be sorry! at least I know not to try or waste my time.
                Just thought there would be a safe way to play around w scraped IDs and some of those plugins like Audiense Intersect, without the fear of my personal account getting the smack down.

                PS, I did already get a second profile with an advertising account verified. I have an ad in waiting but need to add a payment source. Which is where I stopped lol. Didn't wanna add my personal CC

        Once ads are running or have ever being approved, you can't touch them again.
        You can change any ads settings whenever you want but you can change the content from the target such as image or original post content if any.

          Incorrect. You can edit them as much as you like. They will just to go through the re approval process (automated) but will still slap you if you try it.

          Seems a lot of you don't want to listen so please, be our guests and get yourselves banned. Less competition

    I honestly created a name campaign myself and my ads were rejected by Facebook as well. I'm not sure how they do it. But your account will surely get banned once you get caught by Facebook!

      Lets spitball some ideas that we can target that have the same kind of super remarketable pull like name and age targeting was. Maybe like birth month or horoscope symbols? Something personal that everyone can relate to.

    I've heard that some people are using "dummy" Facebook accounts to do name campaigns so it won't hurt if their account gets banned. However, I'm wondering how their ads gets approved in the first place. Hmmmmm....

    There was a guy using twitter and adwords to do these still. That got shutdown too though apparently and he had to refund the $5k he charged.

    You could do the churn and burn, but you're going to have to become an expert at creating fake accounts constantly.

    The name thing died because FB users got spooked seeing their name on a shirt in the newsfeed. Greed kicked in and too many killed it by pumping it too hard. IT happens all the time with marketing. Once people see big dollar signs they lose site of how to run a long term business.

      No. Besides, you're wasting your time on this niche anyway. We already thrashed the life out of the names (first and last names)

        You know I haven't been in here in quite some time as I actually run businesses now but I also make money on the side selling on Teespring. I dont try to claim to be some pro or whatever else trash people claim nowadays but I sell almost 100 shirts/hoodies a week so its nice supplemental income.

        I would assume(though I could be wrong) by your tone towards everyone that either you are still doing name campaigns or got burned badly by them. Its obvious that people are still doing them and that there is a "technique" they using to get the ad approvals. That part I dont care about as I'm not trying to do them but to tell people it flat out cant be done and other things like you cant have fake ads accounts is just not true.

        I currently have 4 ads accounts two of which are under pseudo names. There are plenty of places to get VCC's (virtual credit cards) to pay for the ads. Facebook is still behind the times on banning those so far as you cant use them on google but as long as you use different credit cards on the different accounts then getting fake accounts banned isnt an issue right now. Facebook is the most widely used website in the world and banning IP's is just not on the menu for them so that doesn't matter.

        Places to get VCC's

        Entropay
        Neteller
        Netspend
        Payoneer
        American Express

        Now as far as getting ads approved, the small few who know how to do this are NOT going to share that information lol. I mean seriously, why would they give up that cash cow while its still working for them? That being said, Facebook WILL eventually shut it down and they will have to find another loophole if they can. It's the same shit with Apple and the jailbreakers.....you're not supposed to do it, but people find a way and it gets patched and they figure it out again. Cat & Mouse at its best.

        My advice is to study the best selling shirts over the last 30 days and see WHY they are selling so well. You honestly dont need any courses if you're keen to studying the competition. I'll give you another tip. Every big teeshirt seller uses retargeting. I just click on all of the best shirts and wait for their ads to pop up in my newsfeed. Study those as well and you learn.

          Excellent advice and information.
          I still do about 6K profit per week and I'm actually launching a WSO this coming week to let people in on my secrets.

          As far as name campaigns go, I had a crack at them of course but it was towards the end of the gig, just before FB got heavy.

          In terms of the methods, it's basically cloaked links and redirects. That's how they are getting around it. I have FB ad accounts in perfect standing with mammoth spending limits so I wouldn't go near a name gig, or any gig that breaks their TOS with a barge pole.

            Nice....I'd never have the balls to deal with launching a WSO lol.

            So they're doing the same thing as CPA marketers then. Makes sense. And I agree, I'd NEVER bother with trying it as I worked hard to get my main ads account to a 5k limit and my others are at the normal 750 max. Not worth it when I can just test 10 shirts at $20 a pop and find at least 3 winners every time. After you find a winner its just ROI management at that point to get the best profit.

            Whelp, it was fun WF....back to business.

            If you are making 6k + a week selling shirts, why would you bother to "sell" your method? IMO people who sell e-books and courses are not banking anything. If I was making good money do you think I would sell an e-book? I THINK NOT!

          I tried to following I set up fake facebook accounts and tried to associate them with one of my credit cards, but facebook always blocked the ads account because I was in Thailand and my credit card was from Europe. How can I avoid this?

          Can I buy facebook accounts on fiverr
          https://www.fiverr.com/fvralex/give-...ation-warranty
          and than put a virtual credit card to it? How do I avoid to get it banned if I am not in the same country as the credit card? Should the fake account be the same name like the virtual credit card?

          I was also reading here
          Facebook ads account disabled solutions: how to recover after being banned for suspicious activity - JerryBanfield.com
          that i should use a fake account for at least as a normal fb user
          is that really necessary?

              Why are Name gigs over? Is it solely due to facebook policies?

              I can target display ads directly to a list of postal addresses, and I don't think it would be too hard to duplicate a successful Name campaign using display ads outside of facebook. Do you have any successful campaigns that we can test? (or anyone else?) If so, message me.

            Can I buy facebook accounts on fiverr
            https://www.fiverr.com/fvralex/give-...ation-warranty
            and than put a virtual credit card to it? How do I avoid to get it banned if I am not in the same country as the credit card? Should the fake account be the same name like the virtual credit card?

            I was also reading here
            Facebook ads account disabled solutions: how to recover after being banned for suspicious activity - JerryBanfield.com
            that i should use a fake account for at least as a normal fb user
            is that really necessary?


            All my accounts are aged with friends and posts. You cant just open a brand new account and throw some ads on there. Also I am in the US so I'm sure I'm under less scrutiny than you are. Just so you know I created about a dozen facebook accounts about 3 years ago when I was heavy into doing SEO so I had them just sitting around honestly. Whenever I need to test something I'll use one of them. I mainly run my clients ads on my business account and my big teespring relaunches that eat a lot of ad spend.
