Pushgram is an online application that allows you to automate your Instagram activity. Saving you time and resources whilst specifically targeting the appropriate audience for your business. With Pushgram you can target Instagram users depending on things like their location, the hashtags they use and how many followers they have.

Activity is the term used to describe the automated management of your Instagram account by Pushgram. Once you have set your Pushgram preferences and clicked ‘start’ on the application, your automated account ‘activity’ engaging with other users accounts will begin.

Your Pushgram activity will continue unless you stop it or until your number of actions expire.

Pushgram is an Instagram automation tool that replicates and mimics a user’s natural behaviour. As long as you utilise its features in line with normal human behaviour, your account will not be at risk of password resets or of being suspended.

Ensure that the email you used for registering your Instagram account is real and accessible. If Instagram suspects unusual activity from your account, they may recommend you change your password and you will require access to your email for this. You should also ensure that you have at least 5 photos when setting up your account and that you add more regularly. A key identifier of a fake account on Instagram is one that lacks content and content updates.

Pushgram’s software is secured with SSL certificates. SSL certificates protect users information from being intercepted by non-authorised sources.  Pushgram does not store its users passwords. Pushgram’s software only uses them to obtain required information for Instagram’s API (Application Program Interface), and to carry out the tasks you set.

Yes, one of the main reasons why clients use Pushgram is to save themselves the time and resources that they usually devote to managing their account. Once you have set your activity preferences on Pushgram you are able to turn your computer or phone off and walk away knowing that Pushgram will do the work for you.

There are a few common issues people run into when adding/editing their settings. When adding users or locations do the following: after clicking 'Add', type in the location or the user and then click 'Search', select the user or the location you want to add, and then click 'Add' at bottom of prompt. Repeat step if you want to add additional users or locations. Once you're done click 'Save Settings' at bottom of page. Your settings will not disappear at this point. If you make any other changes to your settings, you must click 'Save Settings' at bottom of page again.

Yes, you can can always post manually on your Instragam account. However we don't recommend you like/comment/follow/unfollow or send direct messages manually when your Activity on Pushgram is in progress.

We don’t recommend that you do any manual actions other than posting while your Activity on Pushgram is in progress as it can make your account activity look suspicious and lead to password resets and your account being temporarily blocked by Instagram.

We don't recommend you use multiple automation services concurrently as it can cause your account activity to look suspicious and lead to password resets and your account being temporarily blocked by Instagram.

Yes! You can add multiple Instagram usernames to your account by signing in and clicking on 'Dashboard' right under your email at the top right of your page. Once you're in your dashboard page, you can click on 'Add Account'. This option will allow you to add as many accounts as you would like to your page.

On Instagram, likes are a way to engage with relevant content that fits with your business. One of Pushgram’s features allows you to automate your likes. Other settings in Pushgram will determine which posts your account will ‘like’, to ensure that through likes you are engaging with content that is appropriate for your business.

Instagram allows its users to comment on other users’ posts. Similar to likes, this is another way for users to engage with each other. In the same way that the ‘Likes’ feature works, Pushgram’s ‘Comment’ feature allows you to automate your accounts comments. Other settings in Pushgram will determine which posts your account will comment on, to ensure that through your comments you are engaging with content that is appropriate for your business. How does Pushgram know what to comment? When you are setting your preferences you choose a variety of neutral comments and Pushgram randomly selects which comment to add to particular post. We recommend that you add at least 10 comments to your settings so that you account won’t look like it is making identical comments on every post you automatically  engage with.

Users follow other accounts that interest them. When you follow an account, posts from that account will appear in your news feed. Following accounts that relate to your brand can be a great way of catching the attention of potential followers and/or customers. Pushgram allows you to automate follows from your account. Research has shown that you are more likely to be followed by an Instagram user after both liking one of their posts and following their account.

Your Instagram News Feed is filtered depending on what accounts you follow. The more people you follow, the more congested your feed will become. We recommend that accounts follow no more than 2,000 Instagram users at a time to avoid congestion. Instagram also has a rule ensuring that accounts follow no more than 7,500 people. The Unfollow feature will unfollow accounts systematically to ensure that the top number of accounts you choose to follow in your settings is never exceeded.

No. Pushgram will ONLY ever unfollow accounts that it has automatically followed.

In Pushgram you can target your ‘Likes’, ‘Comments’ and ‘Follows’ towards posts and users who have used specific hashtags. This is a great way to more specifically filter your activity so that you are getting the most value out of your Pushgram account.

Using Pushgram you can also target specific users. For example, you can set your account to like and follow users who follow a particular Instagram account, e.g. users who follow your market leader.

When a user posts on Instagram they can add a location to their post. The locations vary from being very specific e.g. a particular Barber shop to very general, e.g. a country. Pushgram allows you to target your accounts activity based on what locations people have used. For example you can target people who have been in a location close to where your business is operated, or target people who have posted from the location that represents one of your leading competitors. This can be a great way to engage with users who would also be potential customers of yours.

Yes. Pushgram allows you to target multiple locations at the same time. This way you can both broaden and narrow the specificity of your activity.

Pushgram can be used at different speeds. What this means is that your activity will happen at a different pace. Normal speed is based on the rate of activity that would be usual human behaviour on Instagram, whereas fast is substantially higher than normal rates of behaviour. One key thing to remember is that you want your Pushgram activity to mimic human behaviour to avoid password resets and temporary account blocks. If you haven’t been using Pushgram for very long, we always recommend you start with Normal Speed. After you have been using Pushgram for a while, you have posted more on your own account and your activity has been consistent you can increase the speed you set your Pushgram activity to to fast.

Media Age refers to how old a post is and not the age of a user. Using Pushgram you can filter the age of the media you wish to target. For example you can decide to target all media posted in the last week or alternatively only media that has been posted in the last 24 hours.

Using Pushgram you can filter what content you engage with depending on how many likes a post has. For example you can decide that you only want to engage with Instagram users posts if the post has less than 100 likes but more than 20. This can be a great way of managing how noticable your likes will be to a user. Obviously the more likes a user has, the less they notice every individual like.

Using Pushgram you can filter what content you engage with, depending on how many followers a user has.  Pushgram is set to engage with accounts that have at least 50 followers but no more than 10,000 followers. Pushgram users are able to adjust their settings within this range. Similar to targeting posts by their number of likes, targeting followers depending on their number of followers, you can determine how visible your activity will be to a user. For example, a user with 12k followers is less likely to notice you following them than a person with 500 followers is.

Research has shown that profiles without a bio, profile picture and at least 10 images are more likely to be inappropriate or spam accounts. Pushgram automatically presets all accounts Profile Status filters to ‘High’ which will avoid these accounts all together. You are able to change this status to either medium or low, which will relax the strength of this filter. We don’t generally recommend that you alter this setting.

You can adjust your follow and unfollow cycle using Pushgram. This will ensure that your newsfeed doesn’t become clogged and that the number of accounts you are following remains at a consistent and manageable level. We recommend you keep your follow and unfollow cycle at 10. What this means is that you will follow 10 people at a time, and then unfollow those 10. The cycle then repeats itself. Feel free to adjust these numbers, though noting that they should always be equal. If they are not equal, you will follow more people than you will unfollow. Instagram allows any particular account to follow a maximum number of 7,500 accounts at one time, once you reach that point you cannot follow anymore accounts, which is why Pushgram automates the following cycle to both follow and unfollow accounts. Follow

Using hashtag settings in Pushgram is a great way to more specifically engage with your target audience. When deciding what hashtags to use, you should look into what hashtags specifically relate to your business. While it might seem beneficial to choose more broad hashtags which have more posts, it will often have the opposite effect as your engagement will be targeting many people who might loosely fit into your target audience instead of fewer people who fit exactly with your target audience. For example the difference between using the hashtags #blogger and #travelblogger would be remarkable. Not using specific targeting on Pushgram can lead to useless engagement and worse still, behaviour Instagram associates with spam.

Using location settings in Pushgram is a great way to more specifically engage with your target audience. When deciding what locations to use, you should think about what locations directly relate to your business. If your business is a brick and mortar store in San Diego, it wouldn’t be that useful to target the location ‘USA’. The more specific your location is, the more specific the audience you engage with will be. Think about where your audience might be. If you are a brand relating to baseball, then maybe you should target posts with the location of a specific baseball field close to your business. You can also target multiple locations so if you are a chain coffee shop then you could set your location to target people visiting other cafes close to where your cafes are located. Not using specific targeting on Pushgram can lead to useless engagement and worse still, behaviour Instagram associates with spam.

Targeting followers of other users can be a fantastic way to engage with users who would might be interested in your business or product. If an Instagram user has decided to follow a hair blogger or a hair dressing salon near your location and your business is hair styling, then the chances of them reacting to your engagement by following you back or liking your posts is greatly increased. Try to think about who your customers or potential customers would be following on Instagram and use this as a basis for setting Usernames in your Pushgram settings.

When adding comments into your Pushgram account we recommend you add a minimum of ten different comments, however more is always better. When deciding what comments to add, try to think about the tone of voice your business would usually use on Instagram and some of the comments you have or would comment on potential customers posts and from that list choose the most neutral. By neutral we mean, don’t use specific comments that could potentially be used on posts that they don’t relate to. For example, if you are a makeup brand and you want to engage with girls who are talking about makeup online, you can’t assume that just because they use the hashtag #makeuptutorial that they are wearing lipstick in their post. So setting ‘love your lipstick’ as a comment in your Pushgram settings could end up making you look like a spam account. A comment more along the lines of ‘Love [smiling emoji]’ would probably work better.

Pushgram has blacklist settings so that you can stop your account from automatically engaging with accounts you have identified do not fit with your business, even if they use the hashtags, locations and follow the users you have set in your filters.

You can blacklist hashtags that are associated with topics that you don’t want to engage with. This is most useful when hashtags that specifically relate to your business are being used with hashtags that do not relate at all to your business. For example, if you are a bicycle store that sells bikes with baskets you might find that #hipsterbike is a great hashtag for your business, but you want to avoid users that are interested in motorbikes and would therefore blacklist hashtags such as #motorbike. The hashtag blacklist can also be a great way to avoid engaging with inappropriate and spam accounts on Instagram.

On Pushgram you can blacklist other users accounts so that Pushgram doesn’t automate any activity and engagement on that users account. For example, you might not want to like and comment on your competitors account and so you could add their username to the Username blacklist and Pushgram will avoid them all together. If I blacklist a username does that mean I my account won’t engage with their followers? No. Just because you blacklist a username doesn’t mean that you can’t still target that users followers by using the ‘User’ filter. Please see question 11 for more information on filters.

The keyword blacklist is where you can blacklist words that might appear on content you wouldn’t want to engage with. The difference between the Hashtag blacklist and the Keyword blacklist is that the Keyword blacklist will pick up on words that haven’t been tagged and may just appear in the content’s description. This is a good way to avoid engaging with inappropriate and spam accounts.

The best way to avoid engaging with spam accounts is to utilize the blacklist settings and have your Profile Status set to high.
