A username could be your name, your brands name, your social media account name, or just a word you like! There cannot be spaces in a username but you can use a punctuation points such as a full stop (.), hyphen (-) or underscore (_) in your username.

Adding Your Social Accounts

2. Click the link for the social media account you would like to add to your profile.
3. Either add a 'Verified' or 'Unverified' social media account to your profile.
Adding A Verified Account:
It’s much better for your account reputation on Nichify to add a Verified social media account. Top Brands and Influencers are more likely to work with Verified Accounts. Verified Accounts not only reduce the risk of fraud, but also provide your Profile with a daily updated live reach.
Account verification is currently available for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with other social media platforms will be available to verify in later updates.
When adding a verified ‘Facebook Page’ you must first log into the Facebook profile that is an admin to the page you would like to add. It will then appear with a screen that says ‘Nichify would like to manage your Pages’ by choosing OK, you will be lead to a list of your with your page(s) , select the Facebook page(s) you wish to add and then press done to finishing adding them to your Profile.
Adding An Unverified Account:
If verification is not yet available for your Social Media Account or if you would prefer not to Verify your Account yet you can manually add a unverified account by entering your account name (e.g. @example) and reach (e.g. 1000 followers).
At Nichify your privacy and account security are very important to us. We use an industry standard pathway called ‘OAuth’ to verify your account ownership and display your account reach. OAuth provides client application ‘secure delegated access’ on behalf of a resource owner. It specifies a process for resource owners to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials.
