Did your Instagram account go up in smoke? Was it deactivated because you violated terms and conditions? Even worse, are you in complete compliance with terms and conditions, yet still, find yourself on the end of a deactivated Instagram account?
If so, this could mean that all of your hard work has gone up in smoke. However, that’s not always the case. First, let’s look at a few things you can do to keep your account active. Then we will look at what to do if your account is disabled.
Avoid Images And Videos Of Cannabis Consumption
Stay away from posting videos of consumption. When it comes to informative videos. If you post one showing you smoking a bowl, bong, joint, blunt, or rig it can be quickly flagged and removed. Consumption videos are better suited for websites rather than social media platforms.
Keep Your Page On The DL
While you want people to know you exist, you can always do so without leaving your Instagram account open to the public. By keeping your page private, it helps account owners to be able to restrict content to people who are of age. While account holders can’t guarantee that minors do not gain access, by not having a publically open account, it minimizes the risk.
Sell Your Brand But Not Products
Remember that Instagram is a social media platform. This doesn’t mean it’s a free advertising platform for selling your product. Social media is a great way to gain recognition for a brand as well as build a social media following but not a great avenue for direct sales. Pursuing direct sales on social media platform such as Instagram can most certainly result in the deactivation of your account.
