We picked the best automation tools that can really help you take your brand out there and build a loyal following.
Combin is a desktop-based application for organic Instagram growth. It can help finding your potential followers and their content by various type of searches: by hashtag, by location, by hashtag+location, among followers and commenters of other Instagram accounts. The application’s machine learning-enhanced analysis determines interaction inefficient accounts and filters them out, saving your time and allowed Instagram daily actions on pointless engagement with such users. Combin detects the accounts that don’t mutually follow you and tracks users you unfollowed, preventing from following them again. Liking, commenting, following and unfollowing actions are performed by the application in strict accordance with your individual Instagram activity limits at a pace that doesn’t bring any suspicion, ensuring the account safety.
PlanMyPost is an easy-to-use platform that helps managing Instagram posts. Instead of logging to Instagram each time you want to publish a post, you can schedule one or multiple posts ahead of time. Content for posts can be uploaded in bulk and touched up with an advanced image editor. Post preview ability allows to see how the post is going to look like when it’s published. Besides its main function, PlanMyPost also has built-in analytics that tracks post performance — new followers, likes and clicks received after each post.
Social10x is a marketing service that can not only help you grow your Instagram, but also expand audience on other social media. The service works with more than 5000 web partners that promote you on multiple sites and applications.
