How to set your Targeting

Your "Targeting" tells the system what types of followers you want get using our service. 🎯 The Targeting Tab lets you select, filter and optimize the type of audience you want to attract and engage with. In short - it's the most important place on your dashboard. 💪 You must set your targeting in order for your growth to start. Click the "Add Target" button to add your first target. When adding a target, you can choose between Accounts and Hashtags. Add a good mix of both for best results. Target Types Accounts - When you add an account, our system will find and follow users that are following that account! If your account is in the same niche, those users will have a very high chance of following you back and engaging with your content! 💹 Hashtags - Adding a Hashtag tells our system to find and engage with users that have included that hashtag in their posts. For example, adding trending hashtags related to your industry or competitors is a great way to target engaged users that will want to check out your profile. 👀 Best Practices While the most important thing is to make sure your targets match your profile and audience, there's a few other important things to keep in mind: - Your Targets should not be too large, or too small. Smaller targets will be spent too quickly, and larger ones have a tendency to give you a lower quality audience. - Try to find targets that range between 20k and 250k followers. - Regularly monitor your Followback %. This is the number of users from that target that decided to follow you. While this stat takes some time to calculate, it's incredibly important. You should aim for 10% or higher on all sources. - Update your targets regularly, remove underperforming ones and add fresh targets that better align with your audience. - And of course - Don't forget to set your Filters!

How to Filter your Audience

Filters are the best way to narrow down the type of Instagram user you are trying to target. They focus on the more technical aspects of your audience's accounts. Things like their number of posts, follower count etc. Filters come pre-loaded with optimal settings, but you can still change them at any time depending on your preferences and industry. Magic Filters will return your Filter settings to their optimal default values. Filter Settings - Followers - The number of Followers your audience should have. Keep in mind that profiles with over 2000 followers do not receive notifications that you followed them, so going higher than that has diminishing returns. - Following - The number of accounts your audience Follows. Profiles that follow too many users will not engage with your content, so lowering this number will give you higher engagement at the expense of followbacks. - Media - Number of posts. Increasing this value will focus more on content creators compared to regular posters. 🎨 - Public or private 🔎 - This setting lets you choose if you want to target Private accounts, Public accounts, or both. Private accounts generally have better engagement, but we can't know how many posts they have before we follow them. The Media, Engagement rate and Last post date filters do not apply to Private profiles. - Content Allowed / NSFW toggle - This setting lets you choose if you want to allow your account to engage with 18+ accounts. This is OFF by default.

How to set up your first Instagram Account

Welcome to Nitreo - Let’s start growing! Setting up your account takes just a few minutes and can be done from any device. 🚀 First thing's first - Your account setup can be completed on your Nitreo dashboard, so make sure you’re logged into your Nitreo account before reading further. 1. Connect your Instagram account The first and most important step is to connect your Instagram account to our system. You can do this by clicking on the “Connect Account” button on the red banner at the top of your screen. This banner will also show up if your account ever gets disconnected from Nitreo. Clicking the button will open up a secure popup to log in your Instagram account and connect it with our system. Since this will be your first time connecting with our servers, you may get a prompt in your Instagram app to confirm if this was really you logging in. Our servers are located in Europe, Belgrade, Serbia. Just click “This was me” on your IG app, and you will be connected in no time. 2. Set up your Targeting Once your account is connected, we're ready to start engaging with your targeted audience, but first we need to know who they are. You can tell us what types of followers you want to get by adding what we call “Targets”. Targets are Accounts and Hashtags that your audience is interested in and likely to engage with. We will use those Targets as a reference when deciding what profiles to follow and unfollow in order to grow your Instagram account. We never unfollow users you were following before signing up. 👍 Start off by adding about 10-15 targets by clicking the Add Target button: Think about what types of accounts have an audience that will be interested in seeing your content, and what hashtags that audience would post on their Instagram. Every profile is unique so make sure you're only adding relevant targets. - Targeting by Account 🔍 : We will target and engage with users that are following that specific account. For best results, consider adding industry influencers and relevant competitors. - Targeting by Hashtag #️⃣ : We will target and engage with users that posted the hashtag you targeted. Consider adding specific hashtags that only your ideal follower would post. Everyone we find based on your targets will also be Filtered out to make sure they’re a high quality account that matches your preferences. Filters let you select what types of targeted accounts we should engage with. This includes their number of Followers, Followings, Posts and whether the accounts should be Public or Private. You can preview and change your filter settings by clicking the Filters button. 📈 3. Monitor your Activity and watch your profile grow! Your dashboard home has all the stats you could ever want. This includes your total growth over time, interactions done by our system, and a lot more. In addition to all the stats on your home page, you can also browse statistics for individual Targets, and preview exactly which accounts are queued up for our system to engage with in the next batch of interactions. And that's it! We hope you’re ready for Instagram greatness, because we plan on getting you there. For any additional questions, you can consult your Onboarding Manager, or contact our support team. Welcome aboard - let’s shoot for the stars! 🚀
