There are many ways to automate things when it comes to marketing, whether it be outreach or managing your social media accounts. The problem, however, is that most people do it wrong and get banned so today we are going to explain to you how to do it the right way to ensure it’s sustainable.
Choose Your Platform Wisely
Just last week we tested LinkedHelper, a tool to automate your marketing at LinkedIn. The tool comes with all types of functions like making connections with your second and third contacts, sending out private messages in bulk, extracting email addresses, and the list goes on. As soon as we purchased the license and overridden the safety settings our account got suspended immediately with a warning that if it would happen again the account would be suspended indefinitely so know our limits.
Automating Your Video Marketing
Youtube is a little laxer when it comes to enforcing rules, the main reason might be that bots that increase your view count have no effect on the position of your videos. In the past, there was a thing called regular views and retention views but nowadays none of these help in any way. What you can do is use the bot to post comments, or subscribe to other peoples channels. Google doesn’t seem to have any problems with that as I haven’t heard many stories from people that got their account banned and their videos removed, the algorithm is clever enough to handle it their selves by simply burying your video on page 20ish.
How About Instagram?
Did you read that Instagram purged tens of thousands of accounts recently? Well, that’s the result of bots, or better said one bot that grossly exaggerated things and didn’t manage to stay under the radar. The lesson learned, always be careful which bot you choose, at Pixel Bin they review those bots and take the risks into account so that might be a good starting point for you. Not every service discussed is as it’s described though so do your own due diligence, many mentions or talk about dedicated managers and manual processes but when you look at the workflow and the price you pay for it you will soon understand that much work can’t be done at such a low rate.
When you start botting make sure you create a test account at your favorite social platform, then figure out how far you can go and once you know that or got banned a few times you will know what to do to avoid that next time around.
