In Facebook Advertising

We all know the feeling of getting this feared message.  Why is Facebook Telling Me My Ad isn’t Approved? If you have launched your own campaigns in Facebook, then you would have seen the dreaded message, “Your Ad Has Not Been Approved!”

Why is Facebook Telling Me My Ad isn’t Approved?


There might be a variety of different reasons behind this, but 9 out of 10 times, it’s your image. Your image might have some text on it, and the amount of text that you have used is too much.

Okay, so how on earth should you know what is too much and what is too little?

I designed these microblogs specially for you to use practically. Please feel free to ask me any questions regarding this topic. Please use the comment section below for this.

So, to get your ad approved and ready to be launched to your audience, you’re going to have to follow Facebook’s 20% content ad rule.

This means that when you’re designing your artwork for your ad, you need to place a grid on top of your artwork and ensure that your text is inside of the guidelines for the 20% rule of Facebook.

Bellow I will show you what I mean…

As you can see, I used a grid on my image. This is to ensure that my text is within the 20% guidelines of what Facebook is looking for. By doing this, your ad should be approved.

Personally, if you can avoid adding text on your image I would definitely recommend that rather. As ads with text on them do get a lower engagement rate on Facebook. They will also charge you a little more to have your ad reach its audience.

In Closure

I hope i shed some light on your concern regarding above.
