How would you like to take the connection with your audience deeper than it already is, grow your following and increase your sales while at it? You can do this effortlessly using the right bot.
There are various bots (read automation tools) for Instagram that you can take up and use to get higher levels of engagement. With so many bots available on the market, you might be confused on which one to choose. Today we look at what to look for when choosing a bot that is meant to boost your Instagram engagement levels.
Ease of Use
The bot needs to be easy to use. This means you need to have a dashboard with the right features that you can easily decipher.
A bot with so many features can be confusing; it is, therefore, better to get one that has a few features but with various options under these features.
The more options/filters you have, the better it is for you to customize your settings so that you get what you need from the bot.
Within Your Budget
Though not a crucial factor as such, you need to have a bot that you can afford. Remember that you need to grow your following for several months before you can achieve your goal. This means you need to have the funds to run the bot for this long.
The vendors have different prices that come in packages. What you need to do is to find the right vendor, then get a package that is ideal for you.
There are some one-time packages and some that have to take long before they mature. Take time to know what you want before you make the right choice. The Small Business Blog highlights a few tools for your needs, among them Buzzoid, which offers various packages for your needs.
The Tasks the Bot Performs
You might not be after a bot that does everything – it might let you down. Depending on what you want to automate, you need to check out the reviews of the bots and get one that matches your needs. For instance, since you want to increase the levels of engagement on your posts, then you need a bot that likes the posts automatically. Such a bot makes your posts look more engaging and appealing in the eyes of new followers.
You also need the bot to allow you to schedule posts so that you can have time to come up with content. The bot in this case only needs you to set it up the right way, and you will be on your way to higher engagement levels.
It Should Give You analytics
You also need a bot that tells you how far you have gone with the engagement levels. At first, the bot checks how good your efforts at engagement are, then comes up with a plan on how many likes to put per post, and when to deliver the likes. This means you don’t have to rack your brain trying to estimate the number of likes to place on each post; the bot does everything for you.
You need to learn about how good the bot is from previous users. These users leave testimonials regarding the use of the bot so that you have an idea of what to expect when you go in for one. Take time to read the comments, but you also need to know that each bot had both a good and a bad side, so don’t dismiss a bot just because of a few negative words by a user.
Many bot providers offer a trial period to test the bot before you choose the best one. Make use of these trial versions before you go for the ultimate version.
