Automating social media with the help of private proxies became a necessity for the busy and successful marketer. And one great tool used by many of today’s marketers is MassPlanner, a social media automation tool. While this tool is tremendously versatile, there are some marketers or social media managers that do not understand the role of MassPlanner proxy setup and how to configure it.
WHAT IS MASSPLANNER
This is one of the most complete social media automation tools available today. With its help, social media managers can setup and automate multiple accounts on every social media platform.
While several accounts can be connected and run at once. It raises an issue. The connection setup and how to isolate each account’s behavior from the others. This is where private proxies come into the big picture.
But first, you have to understand how MassPlanner, or any desktop based social media automation tool connects to the Internet.
1. MASSPLANNER CONNECTS THROUGH YOUR NETWORK
MassPlanner is a desktop based software, therefore it will use your home or VPS connection for all its requests. While managing and automating one social media account might not be a problem. It becomes a problem when you will connect more than three accounts and automate them at the same time.
Therefore, in order to ring-fence and protect your accounts from a ban and also to protect your VPS or home IP from a possible flag, you will need to use social media proxies and configure MassPlanner private proxy setup.
2. MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS REQUIRE MULTIPLE PROXIES
If you connect more than one social media account on the same platform through MassPlanner, you will need to buy and implement private proxies. The main reasons being that any social media network will ban all accounts that connected and used the same IP address. Thus, if one of your account’s behavior is considered suspicious and receives a ban, your other accounts will still be able to connect thanks to different private proxies connecting your accounts through different IPs.
When it comes to the ratio account per proxy, you can connect up to five accounts per private proxy. However, this increases the risks of getting all your accounts banned. Therefore, we recommend taking the safe route of using the ratio of one account per private proxy.
And regarding the proxies to buy, you should consider social media proxies. These are dedicated virgin proxies allocated to certain social media networks through which they have never been connected before.
For example, for Instagram, you will be assigned Instagram proxies. These are virgin proxies never used for Instagram before. Therefore, you can safely implement them in the social media automation tool and connect your accounts.
The last step to consider when using MassPlanner for multiple accounts is their behavior. In other words, the MassPlanner setup you will use for each account.
3. BEWARE OF AGGRESSIVE ACCOUNT BEHAVIOR
The main error that gets social media accounts blocked are aggressive following setups. You should always consider that a social media proxy’s duty is to connect your accounts safely to the network. So, once you can establish the connection to a social network through a private proxy, the only thing that could get your accounts ban is the aggressive behavior.
While posting and sharing content has minimal chances of getting bans, following and unfollowing ratios are more susceptible to trigger bans and IP blocks. Therefore, you should always test and experiment the follow – unfollow ratio in order to keep your accounts safe.
As a rule of thumb, always use the same MassPlanner proxy configuration for your accounts. Create a spreadsheet and document your connections. Do not mess your massplanner proxy – account ratio. You could set your accounts for a massive fail.
While MassPlanner is a great tool to use for automating social media accounts, there are other tools or setups that you can consider.
At first, is the direct competitor. The FollowLiker bot. While MassPlanner and FollowLiker are different tools, they perform the same task. They automate social media accounts. The only difference between the two is the pricing model. MassPlanner is subscription based, with monthly payments. While FollowLiker is paid yearly.
However, another factor to consider is that, a marketer, can always use manual actions and actively manage his accounts without the use of social media automation tools.
Moreover, regardless of the way you will manage your accounts, you still need virgin private proxies in order to separate your accounts and safeguard them.
