12 Apr How To Get Thousands Of Real Followers On Instagram (2018 Update)
As you might have noticed before, there are many Instagram accounts created not so long time ago and having thousands of real followers. There are also older accounts with small number of followers, likes and comments. What is the reason of that situation?
The answer is that there are people who don’t want to be recognizable and they don’t want to have more likes, comments and followers. There are also people who would like to get it, but don’t know how to do it.
I have a solution for the second group of people mentioned before. This solution is quite easy, cheap and effective.
Let’s get started!
How to Get Thousands Real Followers on Instagram
1. Go to this page. When you visit it for the first time, you should additionally click “Sign up” and fill up a form. That way you will get access to InstaZood and get 3 free days for testing the platform.
2. After logging into your account, you should add your Instagram account to InstaZood. This is really easy – just type in your Instagram username, password and verification code received via email or SMS from Instagram. If an Instagram app on your smartphone shows an information that someone is trying to log into your account, click “Yes, it was me”.
3. Now, you should add your targeting information to the platform. InstaZood will be following other profiles and liking their photos on your behalf. As a result, those people will start following you and will be liking your photos. As a targeting information, you can choose: popular accounts (your competitors – those with photos similar to yours, but much higher number of followers and likes), hash-tags, locations (city/town, country, square, building etc.).
This platform shows you conversion rates of your targets. You can add about 20 targets and compare conversion rates. Then, you can use targets with the highest score and pause or even delete the rest of them.
There are a few other platforms similar to InstaZood. However, this one gives the best results, has a nice and intuitive interface and costs only $9.99 / month. For such a low price you should gain up to 100 new real followers every day.
As it comes to pricing, you can make a payment for about one year in advance, and this way you will get up to 20% discount!
If you have more than one Instagram account, you can naturally add them to the platform.
Instagram allows you to follow up to 7500 profiles. Most of the platforms go up to 7000 and then the unfollowing begins.
InstaZood has a feature which allows you to exclude your friends and family from being unfollowed by the platform. This feature is called “White list” and you will see how it works in one of the next steps.
InstaZood also has a feature of automatic commenting photos. However, this function probably will not improve your conversion in any significant way.
Below, you will find screenshots with optimal InstaZood settings. I have tested many platforms similar to this one in the last few months, and InstaZood is by far the most effective solution. Furthermore, it is one of the cheapest tools of this kind.
How to Configure the Platform in Order to Get Maximum Results
As you can see now, settings of this platform are divided into 5 separate groups – tabs.
4. The first tab, “Actions”, allows you to change the most basic settings.
“Activity speed” is a list of choice which contains 3 options: Slow, Normal, Fast. You can set it to “Fast”. Then, we will set limits in order to make sure that you will get many new real followers and your Instagram account will be safe 🙂
“Follow + like” means that InstaZood will be liking photos of people followed by the platform. “Comment + likes” allows you for automatic commenting and liking posts of other people.
“Min likes” and “Max likes” – here you can decide how many posts of other users should be liked using the platform.
“Night pause” – this option stops the activity for about 3-4 hours after midnight. This is a very reasonable option since your account shouldn’t like and follow other users 24 hours a day.
5. Let’s go to the “Filters” tab.
If you check the option “Check gender“, you will be able to target people of specified gender – men or women only.
“Media age” allows you to choose the age of photos and videos which should be liked and/or commented by InstaZood.
“Skip used accounts” – by checking this option, you will not follow, like and comment the same user twice.
“Max followers” is a maximum number of followers of profiles targeted by the platform.
“Min posts” is a minimum number of photos/videos posted by the targeted users.
“Skip accounts with a web site” – if you check this option, the system will not follow users with a link to any website.
“Select Languages” – this option allows you to target users speaking language of your choice. The language is determined based on the description and captions under posts.
“Skip 10% accounts” will help you to omit 10% of targeted users. Normally, no one would like and follow every user in any niche.
“Skip private users” – if you check this option, the platform will skip private accounts.
“Max following” is a maximum number of people followed by your targets. If any user has more than 2000 followers or 2000 following, they are probably using the platform similar to this one. In that case, there is rather small chance that they will follow your profile and like your posts.
“Skip business accounts” – if you check this option, InstaZood will skip business accounts.
“Skip accounts with phone number” – if you check it, the platform will skip accounts with 7 or more digits in their bio.
“Use unknown language” – if you check this option, the system will like and follow profiles with languages which cannot be determined based on their bio and captions.
“Black list” is a list of usernames which you don’t want to interact with.
“Stop words” is a list similar to “Black list”, but it is based on the words in the descriptions of targeted profiles.
6. The next tab – “Unfollow”.
“Unfollow scheduling” – after checking this option, you will be able to set precise time (from … to …) when you would like the system to do the unfollowing.
“Keep personal following” – it is highly recommended to check this option in order to skip your personal following (family, friends etc.) during the unfollowing phase.
“Following threshold” is a maximum number of accounts you’d like to follow (Instagram allows you to follow up to 7500 profiles).
“Min following days” allows you to not unfollow your targets too early and gives them some time to respond to your activity.
“Unfollow number” – this is a maximum number of profiles which will be unfollowed by the system after reaching following threshold.
“Do likes” – if checked, the platform will be liking other people’s photos during unfollowing.
“Do comments” – if checked, InstaZood will be commenting people’s photos during unfollowing.
“White list” is a list of usernames which will never be unfollowed by the platform. It is highly recommended to add every important profile to this list in order not to unfollow them accidentally.
7. The next tab is “Comment”.
There is nothing to change here, but you can add your own comments if you want to.
8. The last one tab of InstaZood settings is called “Limits”.
All of these options are so obvious and intuitive that there is no need to describe them one by one. 🙂
You can try to set “Follow/day” and “Likes/day” to 1000, and “Follow/hour”, “Likes/hour” to 50. Do not exceed these values if you don’t want Instagram to block your account.
Also, try not to exceed 200 comments per day and 10 per hour if you are going to automatically comment photos.
How to Find Popular Accounts on Instagram
This part of the article was written for those who don’t know how to find popular accounts on Instagram.
Let’s get started.
1. Open an Instagram app and tap the “Search” icon. Look for any hashtag relevant to your content. If your profile is about motorization, you can search “cars”.
2. Tap photos in “Top Posts” and check number of likes and followers.
3. Tap the button which is located next to the “Follow” button. Then, you will see suggested accounts with similar content.
4. Go to those accounts and check whether they are suitable for your needs.
After finding great sources of potential followers, just add them to InstaZood.
Below, you can see the same process for hashtag “porsche”:
1. Look for a hashtag “porsche”.
2. Go to “Top Posts”.
3. Check number of likes and followers.
There is also an example for hashtag “fitnessgirl”.
As the last example, I’ll show you the same process with the “landscape” hashtag.
Another way of finding popular accounts is to search desired hashtag and like at least 20 photos (the more, the better) – they can be recent posts or “Top Posts”. After that, tap the “Search” icon and refresh the page. This is “Explore” function and there you may find some popular accounts in your niche.
* The more photos you like, the more suggested photos (and profiles) you will see.
11 General Tips for Getting More Followers on Instagram
1. Choose a theme for your profile.
Whether it is your personal or business account, you should choose a theme/niche for your future posts and stick to it. It may be cooking, travelling, your personal life, hobbies, sport activities, animals etc. Choose whatever you like (it may be more than one niche) and try to keep your audience interested in your profile.
2. Take some time to adjust your bio to your profile.
Spend some time adjusting your profile bio. It may be worth to paste a link to your website if you have one. If you target suitable group of people with InstaZood, they may be really interested with your link. 🙂
3. Add high-quality photos to your profile.
It concerns your posts as well as your profile picture. Quality of your photos is a major factor as it comes to getting real followers. If you post low-quality or dull photos, it will be hard for you to get thousands of real followers on Instagram.
4. Set your account to public.
This is quite natural and reasonable – you will not get thousands real followers, likes and comments on Instagram if your account is set to private.
5. Post consistently.
Maybe this rule is not the most important one, but regular posting helps to increase followers.
6. Use hashtags for all of your photos.
7. Add location information to your posts.
You can also get more Instagram followers by just adding geolocation to your videos and photos. There are many users who might be interested in other profiles and pictures taken in the same location.
8. Post at the right time of a day.
Once upon a time, I heard that the best time to post anything on social media is about 04:00-05:00 p.m. GMT. This is the time when people in almost every country are awake. On the other hand, there are people who have conducted researches concerning number of likes, comments and follows depending on the time of posting new pictures/videos.
So you can do the experiments and figure out which time will be the best for you. 🙂
9. Turn on Post Notifications on some profiles.
If you find any interesting profile, you should go there and turn Post Notifications on. How to do it?
Go to profile which you are interested in, tap 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner, and choose “Turn On Post Notifications”.
You should interact with at least some people if you want to keep a high level of followers, comments, and likes.
Obviously, there are also people who will unfollow you if you unfollow them (either manually or automatically with InstaZood). This is why it would be worth to interact with at least some of your followers.
As you have read above, InstaZood has a feature called “White list”. You can add there usernames which you don’t want to be unfollowed by the platform.
10. Post your media to other social media channels like Facebook.
In order to share your post to other social media channels, go to the post you are going to share, tap three dots in the upper right-hand corner, click “Share” and choose targeted social media channels.
11. Try videos, live videos, and Stories.
It might be good idea to try these three things listed above. There are many profiles which gained higher visibility and more followers thanks to these features.
2 Things Which You Should Avoid If You Want to Get More Followers on Instagram
1. Do not buy fake followers.
Buying followers can be very cheap today, but the problem is that they are almost always fake. It wouldn’t be nice to have 10,000 followers and about 50 likes under every post…
2. Do not buy Instagram services on Fiverr.
Maybe you’ve heard about this website before, maybe not. There are many offers on fiverr.com from people who “will professionally manage your Instagram account.” This management is based on asking you about your username and password, then they will use InstaZood or any other platform of this kind, and they will connect your Instagram account to it. And that’s all…
They will charge $30-$100 / month. Instead of paying so much money, you can go to InstaZood, sign up, connect your account, and you will get exactly the same results for just $9.99 / month!
Furthermore, you can get up to 20% discount as you have read above.
