How It Works
Set the parameters for your target followers. Instagram Bot focuses on the people within your set parameters, engages with their pages and follows these people for you. And these people will look into your page, and if your page and posts are within their qualifications, they will reciprocate and follow you. Instagram Bot has the advantage of settings and filters to help you attract and engage with more active followers. Finding real followers that will sustain and help you create an online presence was an essential goal of Instazood in creating the Bot.
Instagram Bot engages in the full cycle of the social media platform’s process. To gain followers means following them first, then liking and commenting on their posts. One limiting factor with Instagram is the number of accounts you can follow. This is primarily for security purpose, as the platform is designed for social networking. And to prevent unwanted characters from proliferating on the platform, they’ve set a limit on how many people you can follow. Instazood has this in mind, so they programmed the Bot to unfollow people automatically to keep the ball rolling, and the cycle continues automatically at your convenience. Instazood solved the issue of creating a targeted system that will work for you. Here are the five patterns you can choose from in getting the target followers you need:
- Get followers from other pages. With this target pattern, you like, comment and engage with followers of similar pages – similar to qualities of your brand, product or service.
- Target followers from lovers of a specific hashtag. Hashtags are the bread and butter of Instagram. Follow and get the following of specific hashtag lovers relevant to your brand and product.
- Target the followers and the creators, users, and owners of specific hashtags in line with your brand or product. These creators, owners, and users of specific hashtags influence the whole ecosystem or niche market that you are targeting.
- Targeting a specific area or location, Instagram Bot will target people within that area or location for your area specific branding or promotional needs. If you are targeting a specific area or location for your brand or product, this is the best pattern for you. You follow locals and get their following.
- Get a follower from a specific list. If you already have a marketing list or lead from your newsletter or email subscribers, Instagram Bot will follow, like and comment on these people’s accounts.
Instazood Instagram Bot is precisely the kind of marketing AI you need to keep your presence on this social media platform active and moving towards a vibrant online presence. Be on top of your social media strategy and get the followers you need to Instagram Bot.
You may have created your Facebook profile years ago, or maybe you just recently opened the account.
But either way, make sure to cover all your bases. It’s easy for users to get frustrated with a page that looks out of date, and by having a detailed “about” section, you increase your credibility as a business.
An updated profile on Facebook includes:
- A professional “about” section and company overview (this is your “elevator pitch” or tagline for your company, with some additional detail for the user).
- Updated URL to your website.
- Updated email for users to contact you.
- Make sure your profile photo and banner are current and designed to specifically fit the Facebook template space.
- Add your opening hours if you’re a business that operates during specific times.
- Include your location and tag your company category.
“Set it and forget it” is no longer the status quo in the Facebook realm. Marketers are strategizing every post, and testing to see which are working better than others.
For example, which posts get the most engagement (likes, clicks, comments, and shares)? Those posts might have a common theme or a specific tone of voice to which your users your users favorably respond.
Go “down the rabbit hole” and use your top posts to create more posts—soon you’ll be optimizing your top content in a strategic way to increase your engagement, and followers along with it.
And don’t shy away from the paid feature on Facebook. If your page is dormant for a while, or needs a boost, think about putting down a small amount of money to circulate a post already performing well to an even larger audience. (In fact, after reading this article from DigiDay, you may want to try some paid posts sooner rather than later!)
This way, you’ll leverage the best of your page—and don’t forget to target your paid posts toward people already with the same interests as your brand (but just haven’t discovered your brand … yet!).
For example, if you’re a shoe company, consider boosting your post that got 50+ likes recently on a new running shoe to audiences interested in marathons and 5Ks.
In the Facebook world, relying on organic only might be necessary if you’re a nonprofit or lack the funding to boost posts. But if you can afford it, it’s a great way to increase your followers and gain brand awareness on this channel.
Lastly, don’t fall behind on the trends. Be sure to research ideal post length, hashtag use, algorithm updates, and how to use images to best utilize the channel (for details on writing the perfect social media post, check out our article).
Facebook Brand Interaction
Like all other social media sites, Facebook is a two-way street. This means, you can’t just share your own content and wait for users to stop by and like your page.
It’s important to interact with your users, share content from others, and generally respond to comments, likes, and shares from other pages on the channel.
If someone tags you in a post, like that post and comment (“Thanks for the share!”). If you see great content that another page or brand is sharing, don’t be afraid to post it, linking back to them.
While counter-intuitive for some, you’re essentially linking to someone else’s relevant content, it only strengthens your brand standing. In fact, it does the following:
- Makes the other page or brand aware of you in return (they could follow you, share your content, or reach out to you!).
- Shows users you’re active in your field of business and interested as a company in other brands out there.
- Solidifies your brand is secure enough to share other ideas and concepts without taking away from your own.
No matter what your brand, company, or product is, you can certainly up your followers by making an increased effort on Facebook through updating your profile, upgrading your posts, and interacting with your users/other pages.
It’s so important to optimize your Instagram profile, as it’s the first thing users see when landing on your Instagram page.
- Rule number one (and this is a no-brainer): Is your profile set to public or private? Make sure you open up your account publically or else you’ll miss out on a lot of follower attention!
- Add your URL to your bio, but if it’s too long, be sure to use a link shortener to make it easier. The goal is to make sure everything is readable in such a compact space.
- Another important thing to remember about your profile—did you choose a name that’s easily searchable?
If your company name is “Snowboarding City” and your Insta handle is @Snowboardingisawesome, you’ll miss out on valuable discoverability points.
- Make sure your profile photo matches your brand. You want to be easily recognizable to your followers—so if you have the same company logo on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram accounts, it makes it that much easier for your followers.
- Is your bio short and to the point? If not, reduce it into a single tagline. On Facebook, a more detailed description is OK, but on Instagram you’re working with far less space and characters.
Plus, don’t overwhelm your visitors with a long description. Keep it short and sweet, while still on-brand.
Now, you might have a whole team that loves Instagram and wants to post on behalf of the company—almost everyone has a smart phone and may be excited to share the latest updates.
With filters galore and a whole range of options (video, multiple photos, tagging, etc.), the space can look disjointed if too many people are logged in and posting for your brand.
At the end of the day, think of your Instagram feed as if it were a magazine cover representing your brand. Think: are there any photos there that would confuse your user as to what your brand symbolizes?
And don’t forget about live Instagram stories! It’s the biggest thing since sliced bread, and you can bet 2018 will be the year of live stories for many brands.
To start, think about which events are coming up for your company—from the major (hosting a thought leadership session or attending a conference) to the minor (team lunch or happy hour). Depending on your brand, consider showcasing some of these occurrences in a live story to further engage your visitors and increase your followers.
Or, try something new. How about a live Q&A with a member of your company? Or even a giveaway or competition? The sky’s the limit—and when engagement goes up, you can bet your followers will increase, too.
Instagram Brand Interaction
Instagram at its core is a photo-sharing app—so don’t forget to brush up on your photography skills, and hashtag, hashtag, hashtag!
If you’re a blogger for example, how can you showcase your writing desk/office area in a beautiful way? Once you snap your photo and add the filter, tag the photo and catch the interest of other writers/bloggers to increase your follower count.
Use a site like “All-Hashtag” to generate some relevant key terms for your post, and add a description line to explain some context (“It’s easier to write in such a beautiful space! Where are your favorite places to write?”).
Another idea is to utilize “Instagram Pods,” which basically are group chats on Instagram, with the goal of encouraging and increasing engagement to your posts—therefore, widening your reach on your Insta-feed).
Like Facebook, Instagram’s news feed is ranked by engagement, not just time of posting. So, many of the same rules from Facebook’s engagement apply to Instagram.
Remember, no matter what your business or brand, you can increase your followers by implementing these tips. We hope this helps to kick-start your brand this year and beyond!

Highlight the Food
Naturally, the most important aspect of any restaurant is the food it serves. A great way to get Instagram followers for your restaurant is to take excellent pictures of the many dishes you serve, letting customers wet their appetites along the way. Dishes that can be put on display for all to see include:
- Fresh salads
- Brunch specials
- The latest hamburger creation
An added way to spice up your pictures is to show pictures taken at many different angles, highlighting the many unique ingredients of a dish.
2. Beware of Follow for Follow
I’m not against using the follow for follow method to increase your followers on Instagram. From my experience, it takes followers to gain followers. People are more likely to follow accounts that have a decent number of followers. That being said, there are certain things to be aware of when using this method to grow your account.
Many Instagrammers who are trying to boost their number of followers will follow a bunch of accounts and then unfollow them once they get a follow back. They don’t have any interest in your account. Usually, these accounts will have thousands of followers but are only following a few hundred. On the opposite end, you may feel that because you followed someone, they have to follow you back, which isn’t the case.
I recommend only following accounts that you have a genuine interest in. Just because someone follows you, it doesn’t mean you have to follow them back, and vice versa. Work on building a following of people who are genuinely interested in what you have to offer.
5. Participation Points Will Be Awarded
This point goes along with using hashtags. Don’t just sit back and watch the trends, take part in them! By using trending hashtags in your post, you are more likely to attract new attention. Try using hashtags like #throwbackthursday or #photooftheday to entice new viewers and hopefully new followers.
Make sure you keep the photos relevant to the hashtag. Using the hashtag #throwbackthrusday with a picture that has nothing to do with the throwback trend won’t get you the engagement you’re looking for.
Check out Sheila’s post My Favorite Hashtags To Get Noticed And Grow Your Instagram for a list of helpful Instagram hashtags.
8. Don’t Over Post
When you post too much on Instagram, there’s the chance that users will come to see your account as being annoying and will unfollow you. Most Instagram users are looking for quality over quantity when it comes to posts. Try posting once per day, then twice per day, then three times per day, and see what your audience responds best to.
10. Make It Your Own
Being unique is a great way to get people to pay attention to you. Each social media platform develops a certain structure over time which leads to every post looking the same, and it can get boring.
Don’t be boring. Be unique. Break the mold while keeping it relevant to your blog. Create unique content you will be sure to catch the user’s eyes. My favorite Instagram account are the accounts that stand out.
