Instagram automation helps you discover new audiences. It’s up to you to keep the conversation going.

Marketing automation for Instagram doesn’t mean you’re turning your account over to the robots. IGplan is a tool to help you accelerate your growth on Instagram. It will never be a total replacement for you. IGplan helps you discover new audiences and get the conversation going. It’s up to you to keep the conversation going and continue building long lasting relationships with your followers.

The most obvious way to keep the conversation going is for you to log into your Instagram app every day and like and comment on your followers media (when your IGplan is turned off). If someone has commented on your photos, comment back. If someone has liked some of your photos, go to their profile and like and comment back. You may also want to DM users in your niche for cross-promotional opportunities.

If you’re a social media agency, you may want to create a spreadsheet of your top followers with whom you want to engage at least once a week, so you can keep track of opportunities.

If you don’t have time for manual engagement strategies, you can also use IGplan to continue to engage with your followers. Check out our Deep engagement strategies for tips on using IGplan to keep the personal connection.
