Lucky for us jailbirds, we can get our accounts back up and running. On my minicast with marketing guru Lynn Gregorski of Rapunzel Creative, we go over the basics of what to do when your accounts get blocked and how to prevent them from being blocked in the future. Watch the video and read the highlights below.
What to do when your account is disabled.
How to prevent your account from being disabled.
Now that you’re on parole, you’re probably eager to stay out of jail. One straightforward way to avoid Facebook banning your accounts: play by their rules. These include:
In addition, there is something you can do to make it easier when your account is compromised: Get everything set up in Business Manager. By associating all your accounts with Facebook Business Manager, you gain more access to Facebook support, who has the power to restore your account. (Likely after multiple help tickets, long support chats, and weeks of waiting. But still a win.)
Lastly, stay away from unauthorized publishing and other tools, like third-party follow/unfollow tools. While these tools may be convenient in the short-run, they have a tendency to disable accounts. (Very inconvenient in the long run.) Make sure the tool is an official Facebook Marketing Partner or Instagram Partner, like AgoraPulse.
So there you have it! You now have the tools to dig your way out of Facebook prison! (And they’re way better than a spork!) Stay tuned for future marketing minicasts with Lynn!
