How to get the most out of IGplan.

As you can see on your Activity Page, IGplan offers a wide variety of Settings that give you all the control to customize your automated activity on Instagram based on your specific needs.

If you want to get the most out of IGplan, it’s important to:
  • Use our Recommended Settings for New Users as a new IGplan user, as well as every time you add a new Instagram account to your Dashboard;
  • Slowly increase your Likes, Comments, Follows and/or Unfollows per hour over the course of a couple weeks;
  • Test, test, test to see which Targeting Settings work best for you;
  • Not do any following, unfollowing, liking or commenting from your Instagram phone app.
Test different Targeting strategies

Optimize your IGplan Activity by testing different strategies to see which ones yield the best results for you. Using IGplan is much like using advertisement platforms. You should be optimizing your campaigns by continually testing different Settings.

For example, let’s say you’re a travel agency in Thailand. How could you target potential customers using IGplan? Well, there are actually a ton of different ways you could go about it.

Test different sets of Hashtags

First, you could test hashtags. You’d want to search for Tags related to travel, travel in Thailand, and Thailand-specific hashtags. Instead of running all these Tags at once, why not break them up into categories and test them individually? Then, you can see which tags yield the best results for your campaigns.

Test different sets of Locations

Secondly, you could test Locations. Thailand is a large country, so it makes sense to test Locations per city to see which ones work the best.

Test different sets of Usernames

Finally, you could choose to target by Followers, Followings, Likers, and/or Commenters of Usernames. Adding popular Thailand travel Instagram accounts is a great way to interact with Instagram users who are already interested in traveling to Thailand.

Track your campaigns

Many social media marketers use a spreadsheet to keep track of the different IGplan Settings they’ve tried, along with results. This is a great way to compare which Settings work the best for a particular Instagram account.
