Dangers of advertising on FaceBook

Published on 8/12/2014

Hi all,
Thanks for reading my latest press release.

Being relatively new to marketing on FaceBook when I started my Affiliate / Internet Marketing career, I burned my fingers on numerous occasions with the FB community. Having found FB (at that stage) giving me the best CTR (Click Through Rate) I went wild.

My first experience was of being blocked for sending too many friend requests. Why? I was then only sending friend req's to advertising groups (or so I thought). Next I was blocked on more than one occasion for "Spamming". Again why? I was targeting my market (or so I thought).

Sound familiar? The problems I faced was that there are dangers to advertising on FaceBook. One was my own unfamiliarity with this social media advertising while the other was other people's illegal (contradictory to FB regulations) of running "advertising" profiles utilising personal profiles. These people could not control who advertised what and then blocked individuals (like myself) by reporting it as "spam" to FaceBook.

Now I know to steer clear of these "illegal" advertising profiles and only post on the genuine advertising groups.

It is easy (now) to see if it is a group, page or personal profile before placing my ads. There might be some "newbies" reading this and here lies the lesson: Only advertise your product / opportunity on niche groups i.e. groups that allow your type of advert. Follow the group's policy regarding type and frequency of advert allowed. Post on only 50 groups in an hour.

How do I know if it is a group or a personal profile? Simple really (in hindsight,mind you).

1) If there is a "send friend request" button on the page, STAY AWAY (personal profile - no matter what the name of the page is!!!

2) If there are buttons marked "members", "events", "photos" and "files" ten it is a group and you may advertise there IF you abide by the group's rules and regulations.

Hoping this saves someone the discomfort of being erroneously blocked by FB.
