If you thought that you were restricted to just using one single account on Instagram, then think again because even though it is against the rules and regulations, there is a way in which you can have multiple accounts on this extremely popular website.
Instagram is of course an absolute phenomenon and there is just no way that you have never heard of it as it pops up in the media constantly. It has millions of members each with their own profiles adding pictures, sending messages, liking posts, and a whole lot more.
Now, if you are interested in marketing and you understand the importance of being on social media, then you will also be aware of the need to be on Instagram or else you are missing out on something that is pretty amazing. Why is it so good? Simply because it is so easy to find people that are actively looking for whatever it is that you are trying to market whether it be services or products or anything else that you care to imagine. They can link up to you, they can tell you how cool something is and generally make you aware that they have an interest in what you are doing.
But, there is a problem.
That problem is in trying to get started with Instagram because it is that big a website that it is all too easy to find yourself getting swallowed up and vanishing into the woodwork. Now, you could try to follow people and so on but that takes time to do it all on your own because it is a known fact that people are rather reluctant to follow brand new accounts that do not have a lot of followers. It really is like the sheep following the sheep concept and that just makes life so much harder for you.
There is a Solution.
OK, so you might be feeling slightly depressed here at the thought of it being difficult to get yourself started, but it does not have to be like that because there is a solution although we do admit that it may not be as straightforward as you would like. However, at the same time you also do not have to be a technical whiz to make sense of it and this method can open up the doors for you on Instagram and cut out so much of the leg work.
That solution is to create multiple accounts.
Now, you are probably sitting there thinking that we said at the outset that this was against the rules and regulations of the website so how on earth can we then set up multiple accounts? Surely Instagram is going to pick up on this and act accordingly?
Well, they would act and ban you if you were crazy enough to just set up a number of different accounts using different email addresses as they would pick up on your IP address being the same and realize that it is the same person behind the different accounts. As a direct result it would lead to all of your accounts being banned and bang goes your chances of ever doing well at your marketing on the website.
So, how do you get around it?
The answer to that is by using private proxies and that not only solves the problem of the same IP address being used time and time again but it also means that you can get to work on boosting your accounts artificially to help you get on your feet.
But What are Private Proxies?
You would be forgiven for perhaps not being aware of what private proxies actually are and you are not alone so here is a simplistic explanation.
A proxy involves having a different IP number and that number correlates to your location in the world. Now, the problem is that if you just use a public proxy then they are going to be used by a huge number of people and that is still something that Instagram is going to get wind of and they will realize that something is amiss.
As a result, the only option that is available to you is to use private proxies if you wish to manage multiple Instagram accounts. These dedicated proxies are not used by masses of people and thanks to this you are able to manage your various Instagram accounts without running into any problems. It is you and the proxy and with a huge number of dedicated addresses set aside for this very reason then there is absolutely no point in you being concerned. Instagram are not going to be able to differentiate between you using a private proxy to another individual elsewhere having that account. Well, that is unless you draw attention to yourself via your actions although that is something that is very easy to avoid.
In short, it is completely safe to use these proxies when you are dealing with your Instagram accounts and this is the reason why.
The Reason Why it is Safe.
These private proxies are going to show that different people from different locations around the world are logging into individual accounts just in the exact same way as everybody else on the website. As your IP address is different from your main account IP address it shows up on their system as being a completely different person. Instagram will, therefore, be completely unaware that it is still you behind the accounts no matter how many you are operating at any given time.
This is pretty impressive and it is a fail safe way of getting around the limitations that have been put into place by Instagram, but there are a few other points that need to be mentioned to make sure that you do not mess things up and put yourself in danger of being banned.
First, when you use a private proxy you need to check the location that it is running from so that location then correlates to the location that you are putting for the account. They must always match up so you have to go and do an IP number search and see where it is based. Make a note of that information as you have to use it later.
Also, you need to make sure that you do not go ahead and log into more than one account per proxy or else you are going to increase the chances of setting alarm bells ringing and that is something that you need to avoid. It is best to make a note of which proxy fits in with which account and never stray from that at any point.
Now, this does sound as if it is going to be a lot of work on your part, but that is not the case. Instead, it is simply just you changing the IP address that is linked to your Internet connection and then using the Instagram website in the exact same way as before. Remember, when you log onto the website Instagram are going to look at your IP and if that number is linked to say San Francisco, then even if you are physically in London then Instagram is going to believe you are in San Francisco.
To be honest, you do not have to fully understand the exact ins and outs as to how it all works as that is just far too technical and it is not the point. However, the main thing to consider is that this is an approach that has been used by a huge number of people on various websites over the years and it has been shown to be extremely effective in what it does.
The key is to remember that it is going to allow you to run your multiple Instagram accounts without running into any difficulties. Now, can you think about how you could use this technology to your advantage? If you stop and think about the different ways in which various accounts could help your business then by all rights you should be excited about the prospect.
So, in short, if you are planning on trying to manage multiple Instagram accounts then the only way in which you will ever be able to do this safely is by using dedicated private proxies. They will mask your true location and make it appear as if each account is run by an individual person and it will appear as if there is nothing to link your accounts together.
As a result, you are then able to boost the popularity of your different accounts as you see fit and that has been shown to be an extremely effective way of actually making your accounts look busier at the beginning. Trust us when we say that you will then have a positive impact on your marketing exploits and only you will know the difference that it is going to make to your entire business.
