Over the past few months I’ve been hammering through the data on Instagram and by now I’ve gone quite pro at scraping Instagram and their data. I’m now contemplating to create an online platform which would allow you to perform target source research in minutes (instead of scraping for hours or days by yourself).
Specifically, you would get data like this for hundred thousands of accounts:
- Basic metrics (followers, following, engagement)
- Most used locations (helps you identify where they’re from, or where they frequently are)
- The language the user uses in their captions
- Account age
- Average growth rate
So it would be a platform that allows you to easily filter through this data and find relevant target accounts for your automation strategy.
At this point, it’s just a concept, but I want to know if I should turn this into a product or not
