Day 11 – I Did Promise You New Ways Of Making Money Online

I Did Promise You New Ways Of Making Money Online

But the fact of the matter is that I am very confused. Besides this blog I have a Facebook page entitled “Affiliate Marketing for Beginners” – I am a beginner and I figured that other beginners who come along can benefit from my experience. Every post I have written I have promoted both on my personal Facebook page and on the “Affiliate” page that I created. So far, so good. Now, pages that you create in Facebook are designed for businesses (I get that – it’s not a problem). Facebook had been telling me that it was giving me $5 to boost my page. So I decided to use it against my post yesterday (Day 10 – “What will the state pension buy you”) Now, friends of mine had been saying that the picture I included would never be accepted by the advertising guidelines so when I received an email saying the ad had been rejected I was neither surprised nor upset. I was surprised when I received an email later on saying that the advert had been approved and would soon be rolled out, given that I had neither appealed against the ruling nor amended the post in any way.

When I went to amend the link because I now have a tracking facility, I found that the ad had been disabled and my account had been blocked. Now, I’m not bothered either way as to whether the ad is suitable or not but I am bothered if they approve it and then decide to block me so I am feeling a little dischuffed at the state of affairs at the moment. It’s late on a Sunday night, just before Christmas. I don’t think I have it in me to write a snotty email at this late stage. I think I’m just going to publish this post and try and resolve this tomorrow.

If you visit – please leave a comment and say hi. If you have experienced this please tell me how it went for you and how you resolved it.

Tata for now, stay safe xx

  1. Yep, sounds about right for Facebook Anne, they simply cannot turn down a chance to make a buck. Don’t be surprised if it gets rejected again when it hits your ads manager account. I found a way around that is to create a number of different account titles so if/when one gets closed down, you can re-emerge with your others.

    1. Sound like a plan Pete 🙂 Actually, it was reapproved through the night but my account was disabled due to “unusual activity”. Hmmm, I think the unsual activity is theirs since I have only taken one action. All the approving and disapproving is them 😮
