In this article we will tell you, how to find the competitors to promote your Instagram account in the most efficient way.
If you prefer to promote your account by competitors, our service will find all Instagram users (your competitors), specified by you. Then it will put likes or follow such users.
To organize Instagram account promotion in the most efficient way, first of all, you need to find all competitors’ accounts, which offer similar services or products, or which are followed by your target audience.
We recommend to specify at least 10 competitors with at least 10 000 followers. It is very important to use public (open) accounts, not private ones. It is also important to make sure your account is not in their black list.
You can find the competitor via Instagram search using its web version or mobile app. As a rule, every business owner knows his or her direct rivals. So, it won’t be a problem to find them on Instagram. Go to Instagram web site or application, sign up with your account, and enter your competitor’s name. For example:

You can do one of the following:

  • Alternatively, you can find your competitors using Instagram hashtags.
    Think about the hashtags, which can be used by your competitors with their posts, and enter them into the search box. Use the search results to find more rivals.
