Welcome to Instelite, the greatest Instagram growth agency ever. Our track record for helping accounts gain up to 10k new followers per month is only possible because of the high quality of our technology and the techniques that we have proven to work. Please read this entire guide to understand how our service works and what to expect.
Your Instagram is now a machine for growth. If you let it and participate, you will soon see what amazing things happen when you become an authority on Instagram. However, the Instagram you once knew is no more. Here are some things that I want you to be prepared for:
- Random users on your News Feed posting strange and irrelevant content.
- Direct messages that are inappropriate or rude.
- Inappropriate content on your News Feed.
Do you hate the users you are following and posts you’re liking? We can add filters so that you do not interact with certain users. These filters may slow down growth. Filters include:
- Non-English speaking
- Using inappropriate words
- Has few posts or is not actively posting
This is a team effort. We will provide the tools for you to grow your Instagram faster than you ever thought possible, but it up to you to give users content that they want to continue to see. Take some time every week and produce awesome content – it will make the results that much better!
Due to the same security Instagram employs to protect your account from being hacked, it has become increasingly difficult to sync with your account. For some, it happens right away. For others, it can be a tedious process. We ask that you remain patient and work with us if you have one of those accounts that raises flags when attempt to sync. Once we are synced, you are good to go!
- Email Verification (Recommended): We will create a new email for you, which you will simply place in the Private Information section of your Instagram. No one will see this email – it is only used for verification purposes. You will receive the login information for this email address. Please let us know if you wish to use this method and we will give you the email address.
- Verification Code: Once we attempt to sync with your account, it will often require a verification code be sent to the email address located in your Private Information section. This code does expire if not used in time, so please give us a 2 hour time-frame that you will be available to send us the code. This method may have to be used several times for certain accounts.
Choosing Great Target Accounts
We have found that the most effective method of growing your account is by targeting the followers of successful Instagram accounts most similar to your own. The quality of these accounts will greatly determine your growth rate and also the quality of followers that you obtain. The more niche, the better. If you are a fashion account but you are targeting Kim Kardashian, you will not do well because her followers are likely not all fashion enthusiasts. Do not find the biggest target accounts, find the most specific target accounts that are doing well.
To choose a target account, first you must identify the type of account you have. Are you a fitness model? sorority girl? doctor? Motivational? Make sure to take these things into account when choosing your target accounts because their followers are the same people that you want to follow you. If you are a male fitness model targeting the followers of a female sports model, you will not be successful. Her followers are most likely heterosexual men and they will not want to follow you back.
A great target account has 10k+ followers and very high engagement. Look at their pictures and make sure they are getting at least 5% of their follower count in Likes. Look at their videos and see how many views they have.
How it works: Following and unfollowing occur in cycles. We will follow roughly 1000 users per day until reaching the Follow Limit. The unfollow cycle will then start automatically and will unfollow all of those same users until you are back to the number you began with.
The best results come from targeting the followers of successful target accounts. This is the default. However, we can also target accounts based on interactions, keywords, hashtags, etc. If you wish to change the number of users that you follow before unfollowing begins please let us know.
- We will almost always set the Follow Limit to 1000 users MORE than you are currently following (if you are following 1000 users when you begin, we will continue to follow users until 2000 and then start unfollowing)
- If you are following more than 2000 users when we begin, we will ask to get that number down below 1500 before starting.
- We can help you unfollow all users that are not following you back before we begin following.
- We will NOT unfollow any users that you follow on your own or that were being followed before we begin.
- If we follow a user and you do NOT want that user to be unfollowed, please WHITELIST that user.
- If you do not like the users you are following, see section 1.
Our Like feature is enormously powerful because of the quality of the proxies we use, allowing our clients to Like 500+ posts per day. This will drive a ton of engagement and exposure to your page.
- Posts are Liked based on the keywords & hashtags that you provide.
- Posts are also filtered so that they are: Posted within the last 1 day, have at most 50 Likes, and at most 10 comments to increase visibility.
- Settings are also available to Like posts by your followers & posts in your feed – this may improve engagement by your followers.
If you do not like the posts you are Liking, see section 1.
Comments are one of the most powerful interactions if delivered correctly. We use Comments to reinforce our Follow action and get the user to follow back and engage with you.
Direct message is powerful because you can share a clickable link here. If you want to drive traffic to a link or business, this feature is for you.
Coaching is offered as an add-on service with your growth plan and can be purchased in your My Account page. You will be paired up with a coach that is experienced with your Instagram growth strategy. Business accounts will only work with coaches that have used Instagram for business growth.
During these coaching sessions, you will review strategy, content, target accounts, how to use Instagram to generate sales or to work with brands. These are highly recommended for all new clients. Coaching sessions may be purchased separately on request.
We have the ability to add automatic Likes to all of your new posts. These are NOT organic likes and we can NOT control where they come from. They are purely for show. Here are some important points:
- Likes work for up to 2 posts per day
- Your account must be public
- Likes may not start appearing for up to 2 hours
- Likes will be added over the span of 6 hours
- Likes must be requested upon signup – they are NOT started automatically
- Using automatic Likes may decrease your post reach
You may purchase Likes separately using this link: Instelite.com/Likes
Analysis & Optimization
We have the ability to track the percent of users that follow you back by target. This allows us to see which target accounts are yielding low or high results and replace bad targets with good ones.
Geotargeting (Executive Only)
This feature is useful for Business accounts that want to target users within a certain location. It is important to understand how this works before opting to use this feature.
Geotargeting works by scraping for posts that have specific locations tagged (the same location that you select when making a post and click ‘add location’). If you use locations too broad, such as cities or beaches, you will not get good results. If you use locations too specific, like a small restaurant, it will quickly run out of results. We suggest searching for commonly posted at locations that your target demographic is visiting. An example would be a local gym if you are a fitness or nutritional company.
Do’s & Don’ts
Instagram has very hazy rules regarding usage limits. They do not disclose exact numbers in terms of what is allowed. New accounts (less than one-month) old are highly restricted. Time in-between actions is just as important as quantity of actions and each action is typically suspended separately.
- DO post at least twice per week
- DO interact with your new followers
- DO continue Liking, Commenting, Following normally
- DO NOT unfollow the users that we follow on your behalf, they will be unfollowed
- DO NOT follow, unfollow, or like an excessive amount
- DO NOT use any other app or software for your Instagram
For New Accounts
A new account is any account with less than 20 posts and/or is less than 1 month old. Instagram has strict restrictions for newer accounts. They do not disclose exactly what the restrictions are but we are very careful not to get your account suspended. For this reason, growth for new accounts will be slower until we are confident that your account is no longer considered new. If you have a new account, be very careful not to execute too many actions or too fast from your phone.
Something is wrong
Due to the nature of the program, you may find yourself unable to perform certain actions from your Instagram account. This is because Instagram sees that you are executing many actions from the IP address that we use and soon considers this the primary account. This may cause them to block certain actions from your personal IP address for security or because your account has reached an action limit.
My Account is Not Growing Very Fast
There could be several reasons this is happening. Our program does not provide fake followers. Because these are real users choosing to following your account, results can vary widely.
If this applies to you, we will work with you over the course of your subscription to increase your follow back rate through various techniques. Please see the following reasons why your growth might be limited:
- Your account is new and we must execute actions slowly.
- You are not established and lack social proof. Newer accounts grow slower, this will pass.
- Your content needs work. Schedule a coaching session with one of our experts.
Your targets need improvement – request frequent analysis and adjust targets accordingly.
