My plan is to first scrape users that I want to target based on competitors followers, then build a script to code the bio of these users to build a more narrow list of users matching with my niche. Then as a third step, to match the data with each user’s engagement rate and other parameters available.
In the end, I should have a few thousand hyper targeted users that I want to target directly through a combination of following/likes/comments/DMs. My background is more from data science and I’m quite a newbie when it comes to Instagram automation. Question is what bot you guys recommend in terms of targeting specific users directly? Some tools out there such as Follow Planner only seems to target the followers of specific accounts rather than being built around targeting specific users directly?
I get the whole follow/unfollow strategy, but it seems very random. Even if you find the perfect match in terms of a competitor to target followers from, only around 10%-20% is usually real followers that are truly interested and belong to your niche. The 80%-90% “junk” might be just as likely to follow-back, but they are unlikely to engage and will become ghost-followers hurting your engagement rate over time. Ultimately my goal is to create a process that effectively identifies real users with the right personas belonging to the 10%-20% group and target them with the perfect combination of engagement activities.
Scraping IG data and building the personas I think I have the right tools for, the question is which bot is the best to engage these users directly.
Any input/feedback highly appreciated!
