Auto Like And Comment Instagram

I Tried Instagram Automation (So You Don't Have To)

I Tried Instagram Automation (So You Don’t Have To)

How do you imagine your life with Instagram automation?
Your phone’s blowing up with likes and follows, and you’re leaning back into your chaise longue, your hands behind your head, smiling the smug smile of the person whose social marketing efforts are scaling effortlessly. You sip your cucumber water. The infinity pool sparkles.
Well, hello from a blizzard in rural Finland, where I have spent a week tied to my keyboard trying to achieve that dream. And let me tell you, making an Instagram bot work—let alone work well—is not hands-off, reliable, or fun.
Depending on your standards, I’m not even sure it’s possible. Bonus: Download a free checklist that reveals the exact steps a lifestyle photographer used to grow from 0 to 600, 000 followers on Instagram with no budget and no expensive gear.
What is Instagram automation?
Instagram automation, the kind we’re talking about here, are bots that like posts, follow accounts, and comment on your behalf.
You define your target audience, and your trained pet bot crawls through accounts that might be interested in you, interacting with them in a pre-defined, hopefully natural-seeming way. In an ideal world, the bot does what you’d do yourself to earn Instagram engagement, if you only had the time.
If automatic Instagram likes sounds a little too good to be true, that’s because it is. It’s a black-hat social media trick, like engagement pods, which we tried out in 2018. Or buying Instagram followers—which results in an inflated follower count, zero engagement, and a long list of obviously fake followers.
But with automation, some self-described “growth hackers” argue that if it’s done right, and you pinpoint the “correct automation targets, ” automation is the most efficient way to build up a “real” audience of fans.
However, there are problems with Instagram automation:
People don’t like bots, and they can tell when a like, follow or comment is fake; and therefore
Instagram actively works against practices that degrade the user experience; and therefore
Automation services must try to evade detection, or else run the risk of getting shut down.
For instance, in 2017, Instagram shut down a bunch of automation services like the former go-to tool, Instagress. Ever since, it’s been a bit of a crapshoot as to where to even find a functioning Instagram comment bot.
While I was trying to choose which tool to use, I read up on the “safest most reliable” services, according to a few different experts. The problem is, even the people who swear by automation admit that many bot providers malfunction or just don’t provide results. Meanwhile, the providers themselves aren’t that convincing. For instance, InstaRocket’s FAQ:
How do I know if you’re legit?
You are free to try out our Trial for 3 days. Trial and Subscription are exactly the same.
Regardless, you have to pay for each tool you try. And don’t expect a bot to be upfront with you if it’s not working. As I found out, this can lead to a lot of wasted time, and money.
What is NOT Instagram automation?
To be clear, there are legitimate Instagram automation tools and software that take the grunt work out of your marketing efforts without crossing the line into behaviour that could get your account suspended:
Scheduling Instagram posts ahead of time so that you’re not scrambling at the last minute
Customized Instagram analytics reports delivered automatically with the data that matters to you
Social listening and hashtag monitoring tools that surface the conversations your brand wants to be a part of (or just keep on top of)
What happened when I tried Instagram automation
Ok, now that we’re clear on definitions, let’s take a look at the long, convoluted process of trying to get results from Instagram automation in 2020. (Please direct my Pulitzers and Nobels straight to the sauna. )
My accounts started with some uninspiring benchmarks.
@akaprincessrosebud (the Instagram creator account where I re-post my neighbour’s dog photos) started with:
26 interactions and 12 accounts reached in the previous week
787 followers
37 following
@princessrosebud2thesequel (my non-business burner account, where I post even more photos of my neighbour’s dog) started with:
5 likes on my most recent post
758 followers
2 following
Sidebar: My follower ratios for both of these accounts is so skewed because I bought 1000 “organic” followers back in October for a different experiment—interesting to note how that number has diminished over the last few months.
So, let’s trace the different steps I took to automate both of these accounts.
Step 1: Sign up for an Instagram automation bot and spend 3 days wondering if it works
First, I tried InstaRocket, which supposedly automates likes, comments, posts, direct messages, follows, and unfollows.
I signed up for a free 3-day trial, and entered my ideal audience parameters, so that Instarocket will find, like, and comment on accounts who like or post photos with certain hashtags, live in certain countries, or who follow big influencers or brand accounts that I think target a similar audience.
And then I made up some cool comments that Instarocket will automatically post for me, to earn attention for my account:
Nothing happened in the first day after I set it up. It was listed as “pending. ”
After two days, I had two choices: email support, or buy a monthly subscription. So I emailed the Instarocket support team to see if my account would be up and running before my 3-day promotion ends. I never got a response.
Step 2: Try to find a second automation bot (one that does work)
While I waited for a response, I thought maybe I’d try a higher-end Instagram automation service.
First, I tried Instamber— the “#1 most reliable and effective Instagram automation bot, ” according to more than one recent list. But the sign-up page gave me a 404 error. Yikes.
Step 3: Ok, try for Bot #3
I was ready to jump up my budget significantly, and shell out the €79 wants for its software, which boasts that it uses “facial recognition AI” (um, okay) and is “100% undetectable by Instagram” (I doubt this is true).
Perhaps foolishly, I was even willing to download its desktop software, in the name of our exciting experiment. Alas, when it became clear that I would need to “download Python” (isn’t Python a language? ) just to install it, I decided to search for another route.
Step 4: Ok, go back to Bot #2 and run a campaign
Instamber’s sign-up page was loading at this point. So I decided to try another 3-day trial. This time I signed up using my burner account, @princessrosebud2thesequel.
Instamber is not as nice-looking or clear as InstaRocket. On the plus side, their support team does email you back (more on that later. ) Mostly the dashboard was comprised of buttons urging me to pay more money.
First, I ran a 24-hour “promotion” targeting fans of @andrewknapp’s page. He has a huge audience based almost entirely on photos of his border collie Momo’s gorgeous face.
Source: @andrewknapp
After 24 hours, Instamber’s bot had followed 69 accounts, liked 138 posts, watched 958 Stories and left 42 comments on my behalf.
The result? I’ve gained 8 new followers. Instamber tells me that’s a 0. 7% conversion rate, though the math is a little… opaque.
The new accounts the bot followed means my feed is now jammed full of cute dog photos, and I am not complaining. However, I can’t help but wonder what kind of cringey interactions my account is having.
I’m worried it’ll be as bad as the last time we ran this experiment, when Hootsuite writer Evan LePage used the now-defunct Instagress to get 250 followers in 3 days. He reported:
“I [automatically] commented “your pics > my pics” on a selfie of a boy who was clearly in middle school. In fact, his account was composed of only four pictures, three of them selfies. I felt uncomfortable. The teenage boy told me I was being modest. ”
When I check, it turns out that Instamber is mostly just leaving over-the-top emojis on people’s normal posts:
These don’t seem like believable comments to me, but they worked for my 8 new followers.
Step 5: Go back and check on Bot #1
Meanwhile, my InstaRocket account, after two of my three free days, is still “pending, ” with absolutely no activity to show. Except, actually, I have lost 8 followers.
So I bite the bullet, and pay the $7. 95 USD for the personal plan for one month. But now I must wait for admin to approve my order. (Still no response from customer service. )
Step 6: Try out a second campaign, with less spammy techniques
I’m very curious: is there a legitimate way to automate your Instagram interactions for growth? Using automation bots will never be lawful good, but maybe there’s a way to use them that hits at least chaotic neutral.
Some growth hackers believe it’s possible. So, I’m going to try one last experiment while doing my best to avoid being spammy and ruining the experience for myself and everyone who interacts with my dog-bot.
This means refining what I allow Instamber to do.
Under Settings > Actions I unclick boxes until my bot is only allowed to view Stories and like posts. I do not allow it to follow, or comment.
According to these settings, my Instagram bot will like between 1 and 3 of a user’s posts, and possibly watch their Stories.
That gives them four different opportunities to see my account, and it’s a softer touch because I’m not doing anything intrusive or obviously inauthentic, like leaving cringey emojis or following them out of the blue.
So, what happens after 24 hours of non-spammy automated liking?
Alas, I don’t know. Instamber asked me to pay for an additional month, so I paid the $15 USD. Then they asked me to download some desktop software. I did that. But my Macbook refused the sketchy software, and so I emailed support, who told me, repeatedly, that I need to “install bluestacks as the android emulator and run social bridge and Instagram via that. ”
Reader, I did not do that.
Step 7: Analyze the results
While I can’t confirm on Instamber, these are the overall results of my experiment.
Instamber
24-hour likes + comments + follow promotion ($1 USD)
8 new followers
24 likes
14 Story views
67 new accounts that my account followed
48-hour non-spammy likes-only promotion ($15 USD)
2 new followers
5 likes for my most recent photo
InstaRocket
No promotion happened, because despite extending my payment for another month, my account is still pending. And still no word from the support team. But I:
Lost 6 followers
Got 10 likes from what looks to be a fellow dog-bot
Received 2 savage burns (from a burn bot? )
On the one hand, I’m surprised that my experiment was so shockingly ineffective.
On the other hand, Instagram has been at war with automation services for years. It makes sense that a company that pulled in $9 billion in ad revenue in 2019 has the resources to make bots effectively useless.

Lessons from Instagram automation
There’s no such thing as a legitimate, risk-free Instagram automation service
The websites will tell you they are safe, reliable and effective. The websites are lying.
Even if the bots work (doubtful), the service could get shut down at any moment. Even worse, your account could be limited or banned for violating Instagram’s platform policy.
For instance, the second I linked my account to Instamber, I was notified of a “suspicious login attempt. ” (Good job Instagram, because if I was in North Van I’d be eating Honey’s Donuts with Meghan and Harry. )
At no point did I feel confident, secure, or relaxed. I was uneasy about handing my credit card details over. I was uneasy about downloading desktop software. The services are arbitrarily priced, and many look like outright scams. Do they work? Many don’t, but there’s no knowing until you pay. At the end of the week, I just felt mildly ashamed for tarnishing my neighbour’s dog’s online reputation.
If you’re responsible for a professional account for a legitimate brand, I’m going to go ahead and say that you really do not want to risk a push notification that says “we’re removing inauthentic activity” or “your account information is compromised. ”
And even more importantly, you do not want to risk alienating your fans, customers, and audience with weird behaviour.
And on that note, a personal aside to the indie band that followed and unfollowed me three times over the course of the last six months: The first time I was flattered. The second time I unfollowed you on Spotify. The third time I looked up who runs your social media so that I can avoid working with them in the future.
The tech is clunky, and support isn’t supportive
Instamber wanted me to download desktop software, an android emulator, and its own app. Oh, plus Instagram itself, though “best practice” was to sign out and leave the app alone while my campaign ran, to prevent any more geographic discrepancies. I think there was something about a VPN in there, too.
It’s not that these extra steps—see Point #1, Instagram is watching—are impossible for a motivated social media manager, it’s that they’re a hassle. You have more important things to be doing.
Meanwhile, as far as I can tell, every time I emailed Instarocket’s customer service, they forwarded it straight into a sarlacc pit.
“Undetectable by Instagram” and “not spammy” actually means “so slow you may as well do it yourself”
The days of skyrocketing vanity metrics are over. Instagram doesn’t even display likes anymore, so in many ways the pressure is off for many brands to merely look popular.
Plus, now that Instagram monitors and limits pings to its API, no automation service can realistically provide the kind of volume I was imagining back at the beginning of this blog post.
For instance, back in 2017, the first time we ran this experiment, Evan LePage went from 338 to 1050 followers on his personal account using Instagress.
This time around I got 8 new followers, many of whom seem fairly fake themselves, a handful of Story views, and about 30 likes total. Weeks later, I also have a creeping suspicion that my accounts are now permanent bot-magnets, even if my credit card isn’t getting charged.
What would have happened if I’d spent this week devoting myself to genuine engagement, great content, and executing this list of tips for getting more Instagram likes? I’m going to go out on a limb and say I’d not only have more followers, I’d be relaxing with a cucumber water by the infinity pool, after a job well done.
Save time and your brand’s face by automating your Instagram activity the right way. With Hootsuite you can schedule Instagram posts in advance, engage with followers, and edit your images all from one, easy-to-use dashboard.

What Are Instagram Bots and How Can They Affect Your Account?

Even if you have excellent content on Instagram, it could turn into a waste of your time if your posts fail to get real followers and engagement. While Instagram might not have the largest community compared to other social media platforms, it has the highest rate of engagement, and that is the very reason why a lot of online marketers and influencers are so keen on using Instagram for their digital marketing campaigns. However, managing your Instagram account to keep it active and engaging every day would take tremendous time and effort. Not to mention the time you need to spend on your other social media accounts as well. Even social media managers are having trouble managing multiple social media accounts to keep each account engaging simultaneously. In this case, using Instagram bots could be very beneficial since it frees you up enough time for other significant tasks… But what if I said there’s a better way to grow your Instagram following?! In this guide, I will teach you how to grow your following with Instagram bots, but also about a better way to grow your fan-base with real followers: Free Download The Ultimate Guide to Instagram Marketing for Small Business Free Download The Ultimate Guide to Social Media Marketing for Business What are Instagram bots? Instagram bots are created to help you perform your daily Instagram tasks such as liking, commenting, and following, without lifting a finger. It might sound simple, but as mentioned earlier, doing those simple tasks eats up a big chunk of your precious time. Bots can make this a whole lot easier. You can also program your Instagram bots to auto-follow accounts that have followed you to make them feel that they are valued. In other words, Instagram bots can help you increase awareness and effectively build real followers organically. How do Instagram bots help increase followers? One of the best advantages of using Instagram bots is that they work continuously regardless of the time zone. Instagram bots can work day and night to keep your account active. By setting up your preferred parameters like targeting specific hashtags and influencers within your niche, Instagram bots can easily look for them automatically and follow them instantly. This saves you a lot of time since you don’t have to scroll through various profiles. And as mentioned earlier, Instagram bots allow you to like, follow other users, and comment automatically. This is how Instagram bots help you get more potential followers since all the people they have automatically followed will most likely follow you back in return. If you are targeting audiences that live in different time zones, the Instagram bot can effectively engage and interact with them according to their feed time. With the time zone barrier getting eliminated, you now have a higher chance of getting more followers. What are the benefits of using Instagram bots? Aside from saving you a lot of your precious time and getting more followers organically, below are some of the benefits that Instagram bots have to offer. You will get increased exposure Today, Instagram limits its new users to follow 20 people per hour or no more than a hundred people a day. By automating your following and engagements, you will have more opportunities to receive a lot of exposure. In other words, Instagram bots maximize the total number or allowed Instagram following per day and send each of them an invitation and encourage them to visit your page or follow you back. You will get an instant result Since you get the highest exposure, most likely you will receive instant likes and comments from the people whom your Instagram bots have followed. And this immediate result is significantly valuable since you don’t have to wait to see the outcomes. By getting organic followers instantly, it increases your brand awareness and improves your chance of generating leads and conversions. You might be surprised by the sudden increase in web traffic on your website since you can redirect all your followers to visit your site directly from your Instagram account. You will get real and engaged followers When compared to buying Instagram followers, the people that the Instagram bots attract are a lot better since they are real people. When you buy Instagram followers, you are actually buying fake Instagram accounts that offer fake engagement or no engagement at all. Instagram bots, on the other hand, allow you to reach and get genuine and active people within your niche who will be engaged with your posts in the future. You can become an Influencer When people within your niche see that you have a significant number of real followers, they will most likely ask you to promote their brand or services. And this opportunity increases your credibility significantly. It will make your brand trustworthy and more likely to attract followers in the future. Is there any risk with using Instagram bots? While using Instagram bots may sound perfect to easily increase your followers, it comes with some risks. Bots may put you into a very awkward situation Unlike a real person, Instagram bots don’t consider the sensitivity of the context or the captions in a photo. After all, bots are designed to like and leave a comment and based on a hashtag you’ve given. And this may lead you to some awkward situations since you don’t have control or track where the bots will comment. Bots may accidentally say the wrong or inappropriate comments on a certain post. For example, your bot may leave an insensitive comment that says “Very Nice! ” to a post of a girl who grieved over her dead best friend or to a woman who posts about her miscarriage. And these instances can ruin your brand’s reputation. Moreover, it can also affect your genuine Instagram followers since it will make them feel uncomfortable. So it is essential to educate yourself first on how to use Instagram bots and other automation programs properly before employing them. Bots may negatively affect your engagement in the long run Nowadays, lots of people are now getting aware of Instagram bots. And once they’ve figured out that you are using bots, most likely you’ll receive in return less meaningful engagement or no engagement at all. Besides, it is impossible to automate meaningful engagement. However, if you are confident that you are providing high-quality content, Instagram bots can still effectively encourage real following and engagement. Bots may permanently damage your Instagram account While Instagram bots can help you in many ways, the social media platform itself is discouraging their users to rely on it fully. Furthermore, your bot may violate Instagram’s terms of use putting your account at risk of getting shadow-banned. In case your account gets shadow-banned, Instagram makes all your posts invisible to people who are non-followers of your account. While you can still create posts and create engagement with your current followers, you will no longer have the opportunity to reach and attract new people. It means you won’t be able to grow your brand in the future since people won’t be able to find your brand regardless of the hashtags you use in a post. How do you use an Instagram bot without getting shadow-banned? To avoid getting shadow-banned, all you have to do is to follow these simple techniques. Slow your pacing If you are still new to Instagram and start following hundreds of accounts per day, you’ll probably get noticed easily by Instagram admins. So we highly suggest starting your following and engagements slow and periodically increase them as your account grows. Stick to your niche One common mistake when it comes to increasing your followers is by attempting to tap into almost everyone, even those who are not interested in your niche. Make sure that your bot is reaching Instagram accounts and hashtags that are actually relevant to your niche so you can grow a consistent following. Minimize the bot activity By using the filter option, set up your bot to only follow Instagram accounts that are regularly active. Setup a minimum number of posts, comments, and likes per day similar to what a real person can do. Don’t let your bot do all the work Don’t rely too much on your bot and instead take some time to do your Instagram engagement yourself. After all, if you automate all your Instagram activity, it could get your account shadow-banned. Make some time to respond properly to comments, like other people’s posts, share posts and more importantly, interact with your audience so they will feel that you are not a bot. Now, without all the risks of losing your profile from using a bot, what are some more authentic ways to grow a real following? The best Instagram bot alternatives to organically grow your following Using Instagram bots has its advantages and disadvantages that can greatly affect your account in many ways. However, there are lots of ways you can improve your Instagram following without the need to use bots, and below are some of them. These tactics have far more long-term value as you will grow real targeted followers. #1. Increase your reach with hashtags HashtagsForLikes is a safer and longer-term solution compared to using Instagram bots. HashtagsForLikes helps thousands of people every day use the right hashtags on their Instagram posts to get their content found easily by other Instagram users in their niche. After all, hashtags are one of the vital parts of your Instagram growth success. HashtagsForLikes is an online tool that helps you research, analyze, track and save the best hashtags to use to attract an audience organically, increase your engagement and make your brand known. You can also track your profile inside your dashboard to measure the success of your accounts performance. It is proven that using the right mixture of popular, trending and niche hashtags will help your target audience to find your content more often. HashtagsForLikes takes the guess-work out of the equation. The team at HashtagsForLikes are also working closely with their Instagram growth community to design and build additional tools and resources to help people get more engagement and grow their targeted followers. The level of support, quality content and attention that they give their customers is unique in this industry. #2. Identify your target audience If you really want great results when it comes to your Instagram marketing, it is still better to plan on how to achieve it rather than relying on bots. This approach may inevitably take a lot of time on your end, but you can assure avoiding some risk that Instagram bots can’t avoid, such as those mentioned earlier. By taking the time to identify your target audience, you can focus on increasing your brand awareness organically and get their attention. With this approach, you can improve your Instagram following without any risk of getting into an awkward situation or being shadow-banned. #3. Automatically post ahead of time When it comes to growing your Instagram following, making simple but basic choices can massively impact how your content performs. For example, posting at peak times can help your posts be seen by more users, and not be lost in a sea of other content. This is where an Instagram scheduler can come into play. So even when you are not able to be online at that best time to upload, you can pre-schedule your content for the desired time. One option is bigmouthpost, it’s a simple scheduler, but has less confusion and gets the job done. #4. Automate your growth It’s no secret that having more real followers on Instagram leads to higher engagement, website clicks, and sales for your business. But growing a following on Instagram is harder and more time-consuming than ever. Kicksta and Ektora are Instagram growth services that help you attract your ideal audience and grow your following on autopilot. The growth methods of these services are simple and organic. Describe your ideal follower and they will find and engage with users who match your specifications. These interactions increase your brand awareness and organic growth without having to spend hours on Instagram yourself. #5. Grow your following by posting consistently Posting high-quality content consistently is the real key to growing your Instagram following. After all, even if you use Instagram bots, if you offer poor and generic content you will be left with nothing. Furthermore, don’t forget to post consistently using Instagram stories. If you are always active on Instagram stories, people will be more likely to interact with your page since they’ll get a better understanding of your brand. And besides, most Instagram users love to interact with the people behind the brand. When using Instagram stories, I highly suggest tagging the location so your story will have a chance of getting featured. Don’t forget to use HashtagsForLikes when adding hashtags to improve discoverability. #6. Authentically engage with your followers Authentic engagement is something that automation tools such as Instagram bots can’t possibly achieve. When you sincerely engage with your followers, you are strengthening your relationship with them. Unlike bots that usually seek out your ideal audience, follow them, leave a generic comment, and then disappear, genuine engagement will work to build trust and ultimately organically grow your Instagram following. Leave comments that persuade your followers to begin conversations and always reply to comments in your stories, and send private messages if necessary. #7. Utilize your other social media accounts Not all people use Instagram. In fact, Instagram currently has less users than Facebook and Youtube, which have more than two billion users. If you have Facebook or Youtube or any other social media account, you can utilize them to get more followers on Instagram by persuading your audience to follow your Instagram profile. However, make sure you have great content ready for them, so they will be convinced to sign up and follow your account. #8. Interact with Influencers Another good alternative to avoid using Instagram bots and to grow your following is by collaborating with high profile Influencers. You can use social listening, to help you find Influencers within your niche. These people have already established a community that is loyal to them, and if you convince them to promote your brand, their followers will most likely become your followers also. However, make sure you have a well crafted Instagram profile, so you have a better chance of persuading these Influencers to promote your brand. Another way to persuade Influencers to promote your brand is by offering giveaways not only for them but also for their followers. You can ask them to follow your page, and by the end of the week, you’ll be selecting some random audience who followed you to receive a wonderful gift. It is an excellent way to boost engagement, strengthen your relationships, and ultimately grow your Instagram following. #9. Collaborate with existing Instagram communities Instagram has a feature that is similar to Facebook, where a person can create a group that talks about a particular brand or service. If you can find such a community that speaks about something relevant to your brand or niche, then you might want to join, follow them and collaborate. Make yourself noticeable by genuinely commenting, like their posts that catch your attention and share with them your content. By increasing your presence in the group, they will most likely check out your profile and follow you. Final thoughts Instagram bots and other automation tools might be good at first for those who are new to social media marketing. However, using these automation tools will only hurt your brand and Instagram account in the long run. Doing your social media marketing manually, is still the best way when it comes to improving your Instagram following since it will not put your brand and Instagram account at risk. You can use the bot alternatives mentioned above to increase your Instagram following safely and organically.
