Can We Use Different Social Media Profiles Promoting Teespring!

7 replies
I'm wondering if we can use different social media profiles or accounts on sites
like facebook-pinterest-tumbler etc. instead of our personal accounts promoting
t-shirts using Teespring.


I will be joing a lot of facebook groups & posting about my t-shirts & don't
want my own personal account suspended.

    Yes, you can create another account. That's actually a common practice. I myself is using different Facebook accounts for my campaigns. I never used my personal account for my campaigns. Just be prepared to have multiple credit cards for your payment method. You can't use the same payment method for other accounts or from a suspended account.

    Not sure if you would flip that many shirts with this strategy man..

    You'd be putting yourself in a grind every single day for couple of bucks here and there!

    I plan on promoting most of the t-shirts on some facebook groups like dog lovers
    groups.

    First I'm going to join a lot of groups & post some funny dog pics & then
    I will post my teespring links promoting my shirt.

    I think there's two ways to go about this one way is to promote the t-shirts by just
    informing them about my new t-shirt design.

    Another way is to create 3-4 different designs & contact the admins of the groups
    & offer to split the profits 50/50 with them for promoting the t-shirts to there members.

    Here's some questions I have before I do all this.

    How many facebook groups can I safely post to in a day to keep from getting banned
    for posting to much & to quickly & how many hour's do I have to wait to post there again.

    Do I have to use a different ip address & clear all the cache & junk like cookies
    before I switch to a totally different facebook account & profile with a different email
    address.

    If I use the same teespring links on different facebook accounts facebook will
    catch on to this pretty quickly & ban me, will using bitly work for creating different
    types of links or are is there a better service besides bitly.

      Good strategy. Though many group admins may have been approached with these offers many times as Teespring has been around for a couple years now. Depending on whether they're cash motivated or not, they may or may not cooperate.

      The key to this is whether people will grow tired of seeing your posts. If there is a lot of activities in the group, it should be fine to post a few times a day. you don't want people to see 4 teespring posts in a row.


      Before april, you can use Hootsuite to post on all your groups at once. After a recent FB privacy update invovling APIs and groups, only group admins can autopost on groups. unless you're made admin in those groups, you have to manually post on each group.

    Well, it's one of the reasons I laugh so hard when they say Facebook, or Twitter or any other site, has X millions of users, when I have half a dozen of accounts there (yet I deleted my "real" one like 4 or 5 years ago). And I'm not even making a living, nor even trying, out of it, so I bet there must be "professionals" with dozens and dozens of accounts, not to mention bots.

    Go ahead, create a new account, just switch browsers between sessions, clear data, reset router if you don't have a fixed IP, or even use a VPN. I don't know, whatever works. I don't really care anymore so I can't say what's the right way now.
