Has curiosity led you to an Instagram search ? Has curiosity led you to wonder what’s behind the Instagram sign up and Instagram login window ? Maybe you’re someone that has yet to take much interest in the social network platform that is insta “insert cool name here”. Whatever the reason, this is a platform worth taking notice of with millions of users hailing it’s praises.
While I wrote an Instagram blog post about gaining more followers using a few different strategies, that was done before a new program started to make waves online. That new program is called “Instawoot”. I got a nifty little invitation in my email from Alexander Cruz, the maker of social media apps like Viralwoot. One of these days I may make a post on Viralwoot as I think you’ll love that one too.
Nevertheless, here’s the email:
[[ Instawoot is an easy to use web tool to boost your Instagram following & engagement in an organic yet quick manner. Moreover, you will also be able to track your Instagram influence score & other useful Instagram stats to understand your Instagram presence & performance like never before. Oh Yes, it is free to use.
If you can take out just 10 minutes from your busy schedule to just to go through www.Instawoot.com, I will be really grateful to you. Looking forward to hear your feedback. I am always available at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So of course, the curiosity of the invitation led me to check this out. At the time of the invite, when I signed up, there were roughly 900+ invited users ahead of me waiting in line and within 5 days I received my congratulatory email with very light promotion of the link Instawoot gave me to help me move up in line. Yep, that’s pretty cool right.. the more people that click your link and sign up through it moves you up in front of other people that haven’t tried to promote their own link. In a couple of days I moved up 500 spots ! Instawoot provides you with the ability to promote your link through social media outlets like LinkedIN, Twitter and a couple others or however else you want to promote it. I promoted my link through a blogger promotional tool called Justretweet.
The link above is to the blog post that I wrote speaking about that tool, so if you haven’t read it yet, you should take a quick look.. it’s part of my blogger toolkit as one of those essential tools needed to promote content online. Once you sign up, you can easily promote your link with the 100 free credits that they give you to use their system as a new user.
Since I shared the invite email with you, I figured I’d share the congrats email too and that one basically looks like this:
Congrats! Your wait is finally over and you are all set to use your Instawoot account.
Currently, your Instagram account is visible to thousands of other Instagram users on Instawoot and soon you will start seeing some new followers and likes coming in. We have noticed that if someone follows you or likes your post via Instawoot, he or she further explores your Instagram account and you end up getting even more organic likes out of Instawoot for free, hence this facilitates accelerated organic growth while maintaining the quality of the ecosystem.
You must have noticed that we have launched Instawoot with just few basic features but we have lots of amazing things in the pipeline like Post Scheduling, Instagram Influence Score, Tag Search & Suggestions and much more. I am pretty sure that with time and your continuous support & feedback, Instawoot will emerge as a valuable tool for whole of the Instagram community.
Mr. Cruz is absolutely right that the dashboard is pretty minimal right now in terms of what you can do but as the email states, there are new features that are coming and I look forward to seeing the development of this product because if it’s anything like other applications he’s developed I think that this is going to catch on pretty quickly. This is especially true for those of us looking for “ethical” ways to grow our Instagram accounts without using hacks or other methods to inflate follower numbers that could quickly lead to getting an account closed or banned.
Neverthelesss, let’s assume that you’ve signed up and have received your welcome to Instawoot email. Once you’re in, here’s what the dashboard looks like.
As you can see, the dashboard will tell you:
the number of credits that you have left in the system along with the following options / tabs:
a follow users option
like posts option
promote your posts option
my promotions tab
account settings tab
search posts feature
The "follow users" tab is pretty self explanatory. Instawoot, calls users “igers”.. it’s a little weird to me but I guess that’s what they came up with as a way to shorten the word Instagramers. Still a strange word.. maybe they’ll stick with it, maybe they’ll change it.. only time will tell.
Either way, you can click to follow users, but currently they will throttle how many you can follow each hour. For each user that you follow, you will earn credits and that number of credits is outlined beside each user.
On the “like posts” option that is available to you, you can like a post and earn credits that way as well. From what I’ve seen most of those will only earn you 2 credits for each like you give.
On the “promote your posts” option, you can promote your own content for 35 credits for each item that you want promoted. The other day when I updated the content on my page, the page didn’t show the updated posts, but as of today a new button has been added called “fetch missing or new posts” which fixes the updating problem I encountered and it works well so that tells me they are still working out the bugs but I’ve got no complaints outside of the 35 credits which I personally think is kind of high but maybe they’ll provide a tiered option later or adjust it as they see fit. Time will tell on this as well.
In the “my promotions” tab, this is where you can monitor the promoted posts that you’ve paid for and in the “account settings” page this is pretty standard as you have the ability to change your name, email, bio and credit settings.
I mention the credit settings because you can set how many credits you’re willing to release for each follower and like you get towards your posts. My account is set at the maximum which is currently 4 for each option which I would assume Instawoot will likely allow you to increase to something greater than 4 as their user base increases and development of the product and it’s features becomes more expansive.
Instawoot is the new “big thing” in the Instagram tool conversation and it’s an exciting time for bloggers, marketers and nearly any one else looking to grow their Instagram following and engagement on their accounts safely.
