Facebook has grown to unimaginable proportions in the last couple of years and experts predict that this company will only get bigger. In the beginning, Facebook was only a social network, but through the years they have added additional features, one of which is ad support.
Today Facebook is one of the most powerful advertising platforms on the market. Advertising companies all around the world flock to this social network because they know how much advertising power it has. Facebook is not only good for large companies that have millions of dollars to invest in marketing, but also for small startup businesses. Previously, people used their personal accounts to advertise their products and only advertised to the small circle of their friends.
Now things run a little differently. Facebook has added a new feature called Ad Account. When you run your first ad, you are automatically creating this account and every future ad is run through it. This is a great thing; it lets you manage and post ads more easily than ever. But with it comes the risk of getting banned, and losing your Ad Account can do a lot of damage to you and your business.
Recovering your account is even harder because Facebook has strict rules and violating one of them can get you banned forever. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible and that is why we have decided to write this article on how to reactivate your banned account and avoid getting banned in the first place.
Read Terms of Service carefully
Firstly, the easiest way to reactivate your Facebook Ad Account is to not get banned in the first place. The best way you can do this is to carefully read the Terms of Service and inspect every little part of it. A lot of people neglect this part and just post their ads as if no regulations exist. This is the fastest and the most certain way to get banned.
Once you examine their Ad Policy, you will know what is allowed and what isn’t. It is much easier to work and post ads once you are familiar with their safety systems. Facebook has sophisticated algorithms that catch any spam, vulgar, insulting or any ad that doesn’t fit into their policy and immediately make a report. If you get on their radar too often, you will get banned.
Actions you may take if you get banned
Some ways you can reactivate your Ad Account is to contact their support or if you are lucky and a big enough client, get an account manager. It also helps if you have contacts at Facebook that can help you with your problem. Building relationships and networking is very important in every business and Facebook advertising is no different.
Submitting a complaint to their support team gives you a small chance of recovering your account. They can fix your account if the ban happened because of failed login or changes in payment method, but if you are banned because of the abuse or insulting ads, there is almost no chance to recover your account this way. You can submit your identification and proofs, but Facebook is too big to deal with every individual complaint and their bots will usually respond automatically without giving you a chance to state your case.
But if you are a big client and use their services for a long time, getting an account manager might help. They will do a background check on your Ad Account and get it back running if everything checks out.
As you can see, recovering your Facebook Ad Account is not an easy process. Facebook is too large to handle every case individually and you often don’t get an opportunity to defend yourself. The best thing you can do is to prevent this from happening in the first place. Just remember to read the Terms of Service and follow their rules. Your account will be safe as long as you are not violating any rules.
