With the advent of social media marketing, multi account management has become a vital strategy to optimize the promotion of products and services in social media platforms.
Multi account management involves creating and managing more than one account on the same website. This is often used by individuals who would like to break the barriers of having limited opportunities and exposure for advertising due to limited actions set for a single account.
Some of the most popular websites marketers make stealth accounts for are eBay, Amazon and Facebook. Amazon and eBay stealth accounts rose to popularity when e-commerce sellers realized that order overloading in a single account negatively affects their revenue due to accounts’ vulnerability to lockout and closure.
Nevertheless, before you endeavor to use this type of approach in marketing, it is important to take note of necessary concepts to understand the risks associated with it and how you will be able to avoid getting your accounts flagged and/or banned.
These concepts are known to be called cookies, user-agent and proxies. Read on to know more about them.
Browser cookie, also known as HTTP cookie is a file which is saved on a client side and used for saving user data.
If you are planning to connect your account to a multi account manager software, the best way you can do it is to import the cookies’ account before you verify the account.
This will help you avoid the risk of encountering identity verification issues as one of the main functions of cookies is user authentication.
A User-Agent is a parameter sent with your request which gives you identity while visiting a certain website.
So, why do we need to know about cookies and user-agent when doing multi account management?
One of the proposed solutions to avoid account verification issues is to make the user agent and cookies of your account similar to the one you used where you connected your profiles. If you do not know how to get them, keep on reading.
On your Chrome browser, add the Cookie-editor extension.
Next, log into your account on the Chrome browser on the PC.
Click on the Cookie Editor icon then go to Export.
4. Open a notepad, paste the cookies and save it.
Now for the user-agent…
5. Go to https://www.whatsmyua.info/ and copy your user-agent.
6. On the multi account manager, add the cookies to the designated section so you won’t have to login via username and password anymore.
Users who manage multiple accounts under a single IP/device will most probably run into verification issues. To solve these issues another solution is using a mobile proxy.
Using a proxy server allows you to access the internet anonymously by hiding your real IP address. You may be aware that each device has a specific location-specific identification number.
Your IP address can be seen and tracked when you visit other websites. Because of how sensitively websites monitor the traffic that comes to and goes from their pages, your IP address is important to them.
At first look, this might not seem like a huge deal, but keeping your old IP address has several disadvantages. Because of this, an e-commerce proxy is a useful and effective tool.
Proxy servers that host the new proxy IP address can be used to hide your IP address and route your traffic. Your identity is better protected against hackers and anyone involved in criminal internet behavior because your precise location is hidden.
Using a proxy for e-commerce sites allows you to get around any geographical restrictions put on your device, protects your personal information, and makes it easier to scrape e-commerce for useful data.
Proxies are simple to use, and you do not need to be an expert to do so (especially if you have a good proxy from a reputable provider).
Moreover, these servers provide security to the identities of the accounts with whatever activities done within the software where they are connected.
In other words, using proxies is significant to the protection of all the profiles utilized for multi account management.
There are a lot of factors to consider when you begin to run multiple accounts at the same time.
From building the accounts from scratch to adding customized details, risks of being banned will always be there but one way to do safekeeping with them is to start understanding the basic things which protect the profiles from being burned or at least being able to allow them to function for a longer period of time.
