For the last few years, one of the hottest properties on the internet has been Instagram.  It started as a simple photo sharing site but has developed into a fully fledged social network.  Many people spend a large part of their lives on Instagram sharing pictures and experience. In some senses it seems to have become an alternative for younger people to Facebook.  Although the premier social sharing site is still amazingly popular anyone who has kids has probably noticed that you won’t find them on the site much.

Part of this is understandable, after all unless you spend some serious time configuring your options much of what you post on Facebook is shared with everyone in your list.  As you can imagine our children probably don’t want to share that much online with us, their grandparents and parents friends!  One of the places they’ve sort refuge is Instagram which is far more popular among younger people than Facebook is.

The demographics of Instagram’s audience also make it pretty appealing to marketers.  Combine that with the easy format of posting and even reposting images means it’s pretty accessible.  You don’t need a lot of content to set up a popular account, in fact if you have the right tools you don’t really need anything at all.  However it can be quite time consuming especially if you have a lot of accounts to manage.  Also there are many people making an awful lot of money from Instagram in a variety of ways.

However there are a few points to remember before you start investing all this time and effort into making money out of the platform.  Firstly Instagram doesn’t like marketers, especially those who operate lots of accounts and take people away from their site.  Every day they instigate lots of blocks and bans plus they even delete thousands of accounts every day.   So if you’re operating on Instagram on a commercial level, to sell or send directly to offers prepare to lose some of those accounts.  It can be tough, watching an accounts with tens of thousands of followers disappear in a second but it can and will happen so don’t get too involved with any account.

Most successful marketers on Instagram operate on a volume basis using software and tools to create, manage and develop many accounts.  If you’re trying to stay legitimate then you’re currently allowed 5 different accounts with no restrictions, if you want any more you’re going to need to hide your identity and connection. Also check what current limits are, it’s five at the moment but that could change by the time you read this.

Running multiple accounts is hard work, you won’t get far without using some software to help you.  Be careful there’s lots out there but using any of them badly can get your accounts banned.  It’s best to start out really slow, and learn the software while you develop your money making Instagram accounts. Going aggressive from the start will only end up in one way.  The market leader for managing social networks including Instagram is called Jarvee, it also can be used to control accounts on lots of the other major platforms.  There’s no doubt it’s an impressive piece of software but it does have a learning curve,  try out on this link – Instagram Marketing Free Trial.

The software can be used to actively manage and promote your accounts but there is an awful lot of configuration options to be aware of.   the best advice is to carefully watch the demo videos then slowly start to promote your accounts.  If you’re using aged accounts with followers and something of a history then potentially you can be a little bit more aggressive, although obviously you’d have more to lose in these scenarios.   Remember the goal of any of these automated software is to mimic and ordinary Instagram user.  So before  you configure anything bear that in mind, a normal Instagram user would not for example follow two hundred people a day in an attempt to expand your account reach.
