    Hey there everyone,

    So I started trying out instagram marketing a few days ago with xgram bot, and managed to drive about 50+ unique visitors a day with just 11 test accounts commenting on relevant pictures niche pictures.

    The comments told users to checkout another instagram account which had my website right under its profile. I'm blasting thousands of comments through these 11 accounts and we're like 4 days or so now and none of them got disabled.

    Now the irony is that I get dozens of new followers daily to the account I'm promoting (that has my website in the profile) and in turn get 50+ visitors daily which are supposed to be laser-targeted, but no conversions although it's an email submit, custom landing page.

    I've split-tested that landing page so I don't think it's the problem.

    The niche is related to cooking, recipes and such. I decided to check alexa for sites very closely promoting similar stuff to me as well as instagram's. turns out the demographic comparison is this:

    My guess is this is the problem, demographics are almost completely off. What do you guys think?

    Thanks. :)

    While obviously demographics is important my guess (and it's only a guess) would be it's not a niche that "grabs" people on an emotional level or you're not presenting it in a way that grabs people emotionally.

    Niches like health, money and dating deal with base issues of survival when you get right down to it: so if you aren't specifically looking for information regarding them and you come across some post offering the solutions to your "problem" you're more likely to follow it up with action that the advertiser wants. The same perhaps cannot be said for cooking.

    You get 100 UV to your profile or your CPA offer? if the offer isn't good, even with 400 clicks (4 days x 100 uv) you won't get a conversion.
