While using uprising of social media we’d a massive shift to social media advertising. Since there are an increasing volume of big social media advertising channels it increased to get challenging for website proprietors to manager each campaign across all social media systems. This is where the birth of automated advertising began.

Automated advertising is becoming extremely popular because data driven choices getting increasingly popular inside the decision technique of companies. Why rely on a persons to determine and evaluate lots of data to produce advertising choices? Rather, publication rack using automated advertising platforms to enhance social engagement, Roi and profits without turning to endless hrs building and controlling online campaigns.

Precisely how does automated advertising work?

Keep in mind that there’s just one pixel permitted per ad account so name the pixel to represent your whole account. We’ve multiple ad accounts therefore we name each pixel the specific ad account. It is really an good way to keep an eye on pixels and just what ad account they’re linked too.

When you click ‘create pixel‘, you will notice a modal demonstrating that the new Facebook pixel is prepared.

For those who have a developer or website owner that actually works together with your website code, you may choose the ’email pixel code’ that will email the code to whomever you would like.

We suggested placing the pixel code among the <head> and </head> of the document. The default pixel code ought to be initialed before you run any monitoring occasions or re-marketing tags.

Monitoring Occasions With Facebook Pixel

Based on what you’re attempting to track, you might put this code on every page or simply some. Facebook enables you multiple options of occasions that you could increase any a number of your website to trace occasions. You will find presently 9 standard occasions that Facebook uses:

Action Event Code
ViewContent fbq(‘track’, ‘ViewContent’)
Search fbq(‘track’, ‘Search’)
AddToCart fbq(‘track’, ‘AddToCart’)
AddToWishlist fbq(‘track’, ‘AddToWishlist’)
InitiateCheckout fbq(‘track’, ‘InitiateCheckout’)
AddPaymentInfo fbq(‘track’, ‘AddPaymentInfo’)
Purchase fbq(‘track’, ‘Purchase’, )
Lead fbq(‘track’, ‘Lead’)
CompleteRegistration fbq(‘track’, ‘CompleteRegistration’)

To trace these, you have to add some these custom occasions for your javascript around the pages that you would like to trace these actions (combined with the Facebook Pixel code). For instance, should you run an e-commerce store and you’re delivering individuals from Facebook for your store, you will need the pixel code on every page so that you can track pageviews. Adding the AddToCart event once they add a product for their cart. Add some Purchase event for your thanks page to trace product purchases.

Case the custom event monitoring piece therefore the pixel code ought to be loaded on a single page from the custom event. As you can tell within the example code, you can include custom variables to every monitoring event. This is extremely useful in optimizing your Facebook ad campaigns.

In case your pages are separate URLs (i.e. you’ve got a thankyou.html page), you’ll be able to use custom conversion effortlessly. Returning to our e-commerce example… For those who have an e-commerce platform that includes a thanks page (most do) then creating this conversion is actually easy. Simply type in the Link to the page the user is distributed to whenever a conversion happens and Facebook will track this like a conversion. For instance, our e-commerce site transmits you to definitely world wide web.icons.com/thanks.html whenever you create a purchase, to track these we have to add some Facebook Pixel on all pages, then produce a custom conversion utilizing a URL as with the look below.

Why Your Facebook Ad Account got Disabled

Facebook-Ad-Account-Disabled

If you’ve ever tried using Facebook Advertising or you are considering trying it out, this really is important to read and familiarize yourself with. Facebook isn’t like other advertising networks or companies that will just let you sign up, develop into a paying member, and begin using their platform to promote. Facebook needs to balance the on site experience of their users with the revenue they are generating from advertisers. If Facebook just allowed anyone to start making ads, as much as they like, in whatever ways they choose, and spending whatever they want, Facebook would lose users. Facebook would just become a platform diluted and disrupted by so many advertisements that people would get fed up and quit using Facebook. The number of individuals using Facebook Advertising has increased so much that Facebook was forced to implement some significant measures to ensure they can mitigate the risk of “bad” advertisers using their platform .

Facebook is tech company, and like the majority of other tech companies, wish to innovate and automate as much as they can, no matter what. They choose to automate the entire process of sifting thru which advertisers are “good”, and which of them are “bad”. Unfortunately, it’s not a “black and white” process to identify good advertisers, and frequently “good” advertisers end up with their Facebook Ad Account disabled or banned. If this happened to you, your Facebook Ad Account was likely disabled due to one of the following:

START TOO FAST

Create a Facebook Ad Account and commence attempting to make ads immediately. Facebook assumes the normal user will be cautious when making ads, and not rush. If you jump in and produce 5,10, or 20 ads right off the bat, they will consider that suspicious and disable the account.

CHANGE DAILY MAXIMUM

Create a Facebook ad in a new Facebook Ad Account, set your day-to-day maximum for the ad, then change the daily max by double or even more. Again, Facebook assumes that new users will be cautious and this could be considered suspicious.

CHANGE AUTO BID TO MANUAL

Create a Facebook ad in a new Facebook Ad Account, set your bidding to auto, then change to manual bid and adjust the bid, then change bidding back to auto. This is another scenario that would be considered suspicious and lead an automatic disabling of the new ad account.

LOGIN AT DIFFERENT LOCATION

Create a Facebook Ad Account and/or ads from your home computer, then log into the account from any other location. Facebook logs the IP address that you create the account on and they track the IP addresses that you typically log in from, to develop a “location profile” of your usage. However, you log in to a new Facebook Ad Account from anywhere other than the location where you created the account, they flag your account and it is disabled.

“BAD” PAYMENT METHOD

Add a payment method to your account that has already been used with another Facebook Ad Account that was disabled without any reason. They store all payment methods using the first 5 and last 4 numbers on every credit card, because they cannot legally store and access the full credit card number (PCI Compliance). However, with these numbers they are able to “black list” certain payment methods. When Facebook blacklists a payment method, they also blacklist the IP address used to submit the payment method, and the address information associated with the payment method.

PAYMENT METHOD DOESN’T MATCH

Add a payment method to your account where any of the information on the account does not match the payment method information. This is not just restricted to the names matching; if you add a credit card that features a billing address 10 miles from the location you created the Facebook Ad Account, the account could be disabled.

TWO PLACES AT ONCE

Log into your Facebook personal account from a different device than your Ad Account was set up on and in a different location, while you are logged in on your home computer. This is one of the easiest ways for Facebook to flag your account. They simply assume that you cannot be logged into your account from two different locations, and therefore someone else should be logged into your account as well. Having anyone access your personal account, besides you, is against Facebook Terms of Service.

These are the most common reasons why “good” advertisers may have their Facebook Ad Account disabled or banned. Most of these reasons are not explicitly provided by Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/policies/ads/) and suggestions made in their community discussions are typically not specific (https://www.facebook.com/business/help/community/question/?id=10152842858838579).
The main reason your account was disabled can vary greatly slightly from the reasons above, or it might be a mix of things.
