    "Instavast has an Automated Instagram Direct Messaging which has been very helpful for me. I create different campaigns and the app sends DMs automatically for me. You can send automated DM to three groups of people: 1. NEW FOLLOWERS: greeting and appreciation messages. A very good way to engage and start a conversion. 2. ALL FOLLOWERS: this could be useful in many cases, take sending discount offers and sales for instances. 3. CUSTOM LIST: you enter a .txt file containing IG usernames and the bot sends your special message to them. There are some other features to help marketers getting better results using this service. Among them are: 1- Gender filtering 2- Filtering based on the number of followers and following of the user. 3- Spin syntax Support. 4- Min published posts: avoiding fake users. 5- Last post's age: avoiding inactive users.

Did you know?

Being famous nowadays is not completely measured on how many people knows you on the streets. It is also not measured on how many TV shows you are in. Since technology and social media sites continue to take over the world, being famous online is also a big thing now, especially to kids and teens.

"Insta-famous" is a coined term for a person who is famous on Instagram because they have thousands of likes and followers. They usually posts selfies, food that they eat, places they have visited or some of their friends to update their "fans" or followers on a daily basis. Some of these insta-famous people use automated Instagram DM to thank their fans. Instagram allows users to send different types of automated messages. Famous people uses these Instagram DM bots to send automated Instagram messages to new followers. It also allows you to send messages to your followers or to accounts who are not your followers. Businesses also use these DM bots to gain new followers and consumers. Michael Kors for example, announced 50 giveaways to its followers via Instagram DM in exchange for Instagram posts using the brands hashtag. This marketing strategy increased the peoples interest on the brands Instagram account.
