One of the most successful strategies for finding new followers is to track and interact with accounts that use hashtags closely related to your business. So if you sell UX design courses, you could track hashtags like #uxdesign, #uxinspiration, or #userexperience and like posts or follow accounts that use those hashtags to call their attention to your account.
How to find get new followers automatically from targeted hashtags
- Authenticate easily and safely on Instagram. The automation needs to connect to Instagram on your behalf. We can do that easily and safely with your session cookies. You can grab your cookie easily with our Chrome extension, or you can follow these steps to get the cookie manually.
- A list of hashtags you want to target. If you have them on a CSV document or a Google Spreadsheet that would be great, thanks (remember to make the Google Spreadsheet public). Each hashtag needs to include the # symbol at the beginning. So use #uxdesign instead of uxdesign.
- Now we're going to watch the stories of all those profiles. You could comment on the post automatically or auto-follow then as well, but watching the stories is good as a first interaction. You could collect the profile list as well and re-target them with comments or follows later.
