Yup, I’m afraid I’m officially out of Facebook Advertising. My ad account got disabled for the third time in 17 days after I turned this ad set back on:
Both of these ads registered 10/10 on the relevancy scale and had good CTR and CPC numbers. And judging by the lack of sales from July 1 – 17, they also got me sales while they were running.
Maybe the people who keep telling me that someone is out to get me are right. Someone is out to get me and they’ve tagged this book as reason enough to disable my account every time.
Oh, and this time Facebook did not give me any recourse to appeal, whether on the ad itself or the disabling of the account – they didn’t even notify me that the account was disabled. The only reason I knew was because they charged Paypal for the ad balance within three minutes of submitting those ads above.
And when I received the email saying that my ad was APPROVED, it took me to the ad manager panel but its buttons are all greyed out and the user (me) is not authorized to use it. And of course, that lovely notice above.
It will probably hit me later, the full deactivation of my ad account and at this point, there’s nothing I can do unless I want to wallow in self-pity and cry, woe is me. So someone is out to get me. So I’m not going to hit my sales targets this month. It is what it is.
In the meantime, it’s back to Plan B and keep writing that book. Only I’m not writing that book…
