It’s a complicated balance between understanding your audience, the social platform and how to leverage content.

It’s a carefully planned dynamic strategy held together by deep research,quick thinking and creative campaigns.

Instagram’s platform is extremely “closed” in nature. Instagram doesn’t want to show you everything that’s going on under its hood — so it’s API only responds to the requests it allows. Which, unfortunately, is very slim.
Their goal is to create a community with organic and genuine engagement, free of spam, hackers, and bots trying to “cheat the system”.
Instagram only recently updated their API to allow users to automatically schedule and publish posts via 3rd parties like Hootsuite and Sprout Social. This was undeniably the most frequently requested Instagram feature, so this was a win for business owners and social media marketers alike! But proceed with caution.
While we’re all about leveraging productivity hacks… Using an app to automate posts or increase engagement, followers, or likes, may really end up hurting you.
Instagram detects automation, so it can “devalue” your content, block your organic reach, or even ban your account. When you use an app to extract data or engage with users by following and unfollowing accounts, Instagram may blacklist or ban your account.
