I launched a side project recently and my current mission is to make my project known to more people.
In other words i'm at the customer acquisition stage.
I posted on Facebook groups but I got banned 3 out of 4 times because "I was advertising and it's not allowed here".
I was a bit confused because I saw that my app was genuinely helping facebook groups. But the admins didn't care.
I changed my way of approaching these groups where my audience is.
Now I am creating useful little resources related to this area with links to my project and the newsletter.
Instead of giving the link to my app, I give the link to the resource.
I don't get banned anymore and people comment “wow amazing", "great idea”, “thanks for sharing”, etc.
