I remember the feeling I had when I saw the notice that Facebook disabled my ad account for policy violations. First, it was shock and disbelief, then it was anger. I’m sure many of you were using Facebook ads as a profitable source of traffic for your business and spending several hundred to several thousand dollars a month. Only to have them take it all away without an explanation. Well, there’s still hope…
In this video, I’m going to tell you the steps I took to recently get my Facebook advertising account reactivated…even if you tried before and got a response telling you to “please consider the decision final.”
The first thing we’re going to do is get to a calmer state of mind. If Facebook ads were a major source of income for your business, you’re going to have a lot of anger for what they did and you don’t want that anger to come out when you are writing your appeal.
Then it’s time to figure out what you did wrong. Facebook won’t tell you, so you have to do some detective work. And I share with you why it’s important to think like a computer and be objective. Your intent does not matter. It’s likely your account was automatically disabled because you triggered something in their algorithm.
Once you figured out which policy you violated, it’s time to write the appeal. I tell you what things you need to include in the appeal in order to increase your chances of getting your ad account reactivated.
There’s no guarantee this will work, but this is the appeal layout I used to get my account reactivated again.
If it doesn’t work the first time, submit another appeal, but use different wording or be more specific in your explanations.
I believe the whole process is automated, so it’s really just a matter of using the correct words to trigger an approval.
I hope this helps you get your advertising account reactivated.
If there are any other methods that worked for you, leave them below in the comments.
Thanks for watching!
