Deep engagement strategy
Mimic natural behavior using XPLOD Social to engage with your followers.
When you use XPLOD Social, you increase your chances of Instagram users noticing your account. Therefore, you’re casting a wide net by following, for example, 1,000 users at a time. What are the chances that these users will notice your follow on their Instagram notifications? This depends on the niche you’re targeting, the comments you’re using, and the time of day you’re posting.
However, there are ways to increase the chance that these users notice your account and follow you back. How? By using XPLOD Social automation to engage as deeply as possible with the users. This means that your XPLOD Social Activity will look like “real” activity. When users turn on their Instagram app, they will see that you’ve followed them, liked and commented on their photos, and hopefully they will then be curious to check out your account and follow you in return.
Follow 2,000 accounts using the Targeting of your choice. Our favorites are Tags and Followers > Usernames. Don’t forget to add usernames with the high engagement rates (likes per photo in relation to total followers).
After you’ve followed thousands of accounts, switch on Likes and Comments with your Targeting set to Followings > My Feed with a Media Age filter of 2 weeks. This means that you won’t be targeting new users, but rather engaging with the users you’ve already followed.
After you’ve let your Activity run until you’ve liked and commented on 2,000 accounts, you can change the Media Age to Newest, as well as the Comments, and run it again.
Now, it’s time to run Unfollows with the Unfollow who don’t follow me box checked. You can keep Likes on during this process.
After you’ve unfollowed everyone who doesn’t follow you back, you can run another deep engagement cycle of Likes only for Followers > My Account.
Now, that you’ve engaged as deeply as you possibly can with these accounts, it’s time to Unfollow Source >XPLOD Social and uncheck Unfollow who don’t follow me (if you wish) to clear out all the people you followed.
