    Hi All,

    I've been lurking around these forums for a little while and have learned a ton about Instagram. So I just wanted to start with a thank you!

    I've recently run into a problem with one of the accounts I manage which is a B2B account. The problem I have is that I can't really find a good way to use automation, while isolating the actual business accounts (not always marked as a "business") from the normal users.

    There aren't really any hashtags that feature just these business accounts and there also aren't any large accounts that have built a decent following of this niche that I can point the automation at.

    I've been doing it manually now for at least a month and it's been successful enough that I know once I can isolate the business accounts from the consumers it should work well. But I can't figure out a way to do that. So far the best thing I have come up with is making some accounts and using them to follow as many of these business accounts as I can. Then pointing the automation tool at those accounts - but I don't know if this is the best way to do this.

    Anywho, I wanted reach out to you all and see if anyone has any ideas on how this could be achieved.


    I appreciate any and all help!

    PS. On any given hashtag the consumer accounts far outnumbers the business ones, so just pointing automation at the hashtags results in mostly the wrong audience being targeted. Location does not matter in this instance.

    It should be easy now for a bot creator to implement a feature to target just accounts which are set as business on instagram

    Yes I thought about that too - the problem is, not all accounts are set as business accounts. Hopefully that will change over time though I guess
