    You never used Instagress, but it seems that IG is getting strict with these providers now.

    So be careful if you want to automate Instagram Marketing in a bigger scale. :)

    What do you consider a "safe" account to start using a bot?

    Meaning, lately, I've been seeing my new IG accounts get several checkpoints that you have to confirm with a text. Not only that; but often times, even with being organically active.. the account still gets deleted.

    I'm assuming there's a certain time frame an account has to be active or a level of certain activity reached?

    Assuming you're not posting spam/porn etc then either your account is likely very young (under one month) and you're posting and liking too much currently. Or you're posting/liking/commenting waaaay more than the majority and IG thinks you're a bot or botting. If your content is getting reported often that could mean IG put tighter controls on you if that happens a lot they're more likely to ban or delete.

    Also after a ban you'll want to wait about a week to start really going for it again.

    Be really cautious if you're starting a new account. Gradually speed up your settings. Don't do something irrational. These are some of the basics.

    Congratulations! How many recurring clients do you have now?
    What do you mean with 'marketed'? Did you create ads, did you run a campaign, did you activated your network?

    I am looking to outsource my social media marketing on Instagram. How would you say you differ from the other agencies/marketers?

    In a general sense what should I look for in an agency and instagram marketer?

    Thanks,

    MG

    Hey Ziad, I have been growing my personal account really slowly over the past few months. I want to increase things and grow faster. Your services sound really interesting but the only thing I'm interested in is getting a bot that likes 150+ pictures everyday as I have been seeing good organic results manually liking about 100 pictures a day.

    What makes me different is experience and caution. I always proceed on Instagram with caution in order to make sure my client is ONLY getting the kind of followers that are interested in him or his business. And I have 2-3 years of experience to back it up. Have grown a lot of accounts on Instagram :)

    I've been following your progress and things seem to be going well - great work!

    On your website, you mention monthly 1 hour Skype consultations, what do you talk to your customers about?

    I'm also curious as to what sort of posts you do. If you take on, for example, a customer who sells cupcakes do you just post related images? Where do you get the images from? Sorry to smash you with questions.

    In the first consultation I ask customers what they are looking for, research their business, inquire as much as I can about their Instagram page and tell them how everything will work out and how many followers they can gain and how that will help them or their brand. From then on, I catch up once a month with my clients for feedback and to see if they are satisfied with my service. If they would like anything improved etc.

    The posts I do, 99% of the time are given to me by the clients themselves. In one case, I handle a client who just wants to grow his personal account and wants to be famous. He is an entrepreneur so I curate motivational and luxury posts for him. If it's a brand who I'm working with, I highly recommend that they send me content they'd like to be posted on their page.

    Hope this helps and no worries, you can ask me anytime :)

    Do you have a contract or something similar you send to clients? Any recommendations there?

    I meant in the sense of them feeling secure in giving you the password to their business or the IG that represents their business. Is it just a "hey look at the website, pay the money and give me your password" type transaction?

    I guess I'm really asking how you inspire confidence in your clients that you are trustworthy etc.

    Thanks.

    Good question, we've thought of having people do IG story takeovers and having others post for us but without being able to create admins we don't want to be giving that password out!!

    If they need to, we can sign a separate contract asking permission for access to their IG account.

    I've signed 2 more clients today.

    My goal is to get at least 150 clients.

    You'll manage 150 clients yourself or will you get some assistance? How much time per day are you working on each account?

    Congratulations!

    Maybe try to work with referrals + discounts?
    So if a client refers you, the new client gets 10% off.
    Or everytime an existing client refers you, they get 10%.

    You might have to test out what works best:
    A money focus (they have to spend less)
    A network focus (they can help out their friend's businesses)

    Maybe set up some kind of affiliate structure?

    Or look at the way you got leads so far, create a repeatable system and let VAs do the selling.

    @Ziad do you have any data on hashtags in the original post vs as a comment on the post? Do they perform the same or is there a significant difference?
