    So as you most likely guessed, I'm after the emails in these bio's.

    Are there any tools or methods to do this?

    How many are you trying to scrape? There's definitely ways to do that with automated tools, but if it's a one-time project and a relatively small quantity (like under 500 or so), can be cheaper/faster to pay a VA a few dollars per hour to manually do it for you.

    Yeah, it would be under 500 to start off with, I actually have a conversation open with a VA on Fiverr as we speak haha!

    Was just wondering if there was any other alternative before I went ahead.

    Maybe ScrapeBox, but am not sure how well it works with InstaGram. Or a custom Python script, but then you have to write a custom Python script.
