    I've been very successful with many instagram accounts over the past few years and have managed multiple companies profiles and built their accounts up by using Instagress automation tools. I'm trying a new music niche and the account is strictly videos only. My account is extremely clean with formated bios and captions. I use the same popular 30 hashtags within my niche that I see other accounts running, but I am only averaging about 200 views within 24 hours. I post at peak times but my competitors are some how able to get 1000's of views within their 24 Hours and have similar numbers in followers and essentially the same followers since that is where I target my automation. What are some white hat and black hat techniques that I can use? Are there any instagram view groups on here that we can recommend or maybe even create if enough people are interested. I have a few burner phones idk if I can do anything with those to try and manipulate views. Any ideas?

    On Instagram... #Obsessed
    I have the same problem... My acc is in the music niche too, just videos as well and I've noticed that is much more difficult to get views than likes. So one trick you can use is to type at the top of the caption "WATCH THIS VIDEO TILL THE END OMG" or something like that, or you can post a pic saying "watch my last video and comment for a shoutout" and these work for me;)

    Anyway I'm looking forward for someone more experienced than me to help us out!:D

    Are you sure they need to do this? I was under the impression after a certain number of seconds viewing the video it counts as a view.

    Just like youtube.

    After all Instagram will wanna inflate the number of views on videos so people who are paying for video ads think they are getting value for money and buy more....

    I have read that a view only counts if it is played through the instagram application and viewed for a minimum of 3 seconds. I set up two of my burner phones on macros to view the videos on a repeat system but it didn't work. I wonder if there is an application that will scramble my phone to look like it is a new device or if instagram knows which accounts view a video and what is the limit for views per account.

    instagram views are super cheap
    if you're ok with fake views (which it seems like you are), then I would save some time and just break out the coin purse

    how many views do you need per post
    $1.5/1000 views is too expensive?
