Hi there! Greetings from the Instagress Team! We read your article and wanted to reach out. We see that you’re struggling to use Instagress correctly, so we’ve added a free year of our service to your Instagram account, first for the great free promotion you’ve given us, and secondly so you can learn to use the product to get real targeted results. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you to set up your Targeting correctly, so you aren’t targeting spammy tags, and users from other countries. Here to help
First of all, wow—conducting research for two years is really cool and thorough. We enjoyed reading the article, although there are some points that aren’t quite 100% factual, so we’d love to give you and your readers some more information.
Instagress helps people discover and engage with Instagram users in their target audience. We’ve developed tons of customization options to help you interact with real accounts you’d actually be interested in. Automation may have a bad reputation, but it’s really not so different from interacting with users on the Instagram app. Instagram automation can give powers to many good people, such as local businesses who find new clients they wouldn’t have discovered otherwise. It’s very hard to start a business online if you don’t have enough money for advertising. Instagress is an affordable way to interact with real targeted accounts on Instagram. In fact, we heard from one user who actually met her finace through an automated Instagress interaction. We couldn’t believe it either, but it’s true! Lots of good things can come through automation, when used correctly.
- You mentioned that you set up Instagress two years ago and then didn’t really tweak your Settings. If you read our blog posts and tips and tricks, you’ll see that we recommend that you do the exact opposite—definitely try different Targeting methods and change them frequently, as hashtags are constantly fluctuating in quality. Additionally, we offer Targeting for not only just Tags, but also Locations and Usernames, so you should definitely try these methods. Locations are helpful when trying to target users in a specific geographic area, and Usernames are helpful when you want to engage with the followers of specific accounts.
You also said in the article that you were getting a lot of followers from different countries. This is because you didn’t explore our Location Targeting, but rather chose to focus on Tags only. We give users all the power to adjust their Settings as they see fit. Of course, this means that sometimes users don’t explore all of our targeted features, as in your case.
You probably missed a lot of our new features in these two years, which we developed specifically to combat fake, spammy accounts like our User Profile Filter. The User Profile Filters makes it so that you don’t interact with accounts that have no bio, less than 15 photos, and other spammy-characteristics. We don’t want Instagress to be used for spammy reasons, and we don’t want our users to interact with spammy accounts. We’re always innovating to combat spam, just like Instagram.
We don’t recommend that anyone use Instagress 24/7. Of course, you have the power to, but Instagress is just one component of a healthy Instagram marketing strategy. That’s why we created the Schedule feature, which allows you to schedule when your Instagress is active. Let’s say you only run Instagress while you’re asleep, then you can engage with accounts on your Instagram app during the daytime. Instagress is never a replacement for a social media strategy. An extra bonus: When your Schedule is Paused, your Time isn’t running, so you get the best value for your money.
Feel free to ask us any questions. We’re always here to help!
