Collecting a list of subscribers using Zengram Parser
Anyone who uses Instagram to promote a product or service and seeks to increase their own popularity will sometime benefit from collecting a list of subscribers. The subscriber database is necessary for more correct promotion, because it represents a huge number of potential customers.
The Zengram team helps people to get ahead on Instagram, so they create own subscriber collection program called Zengram Parser. Using it, you can collect a list of subscribers for the required parameters, but also increase the number of actions the program is promoting and reduce the chance of blocking by Instagram algorithms.
Getting start with Zengram Parser
Zengram Parser is one of the Zengram services, so before start you need to select it in the drop-down window with the list of services.
First of all, you need to add an account that will be used to collect the audience (you need to type your username and password of the profile). Here it is necessary to take the account that is not the one you want to promote. This is necessary in order to protect the promoted account from possible blocking by social network algorithms. Click on the green “Add” button. It is important to make sure that you have access to the e-mail to which the profile is attached, and two-factor authentication is disabled.
Targeted collecting a list of accounts
Over time, the list of factors for targeting can grow, but at the moment this database can be collected by:
- Competitor’s subscribes and followers;
- Defined hashtags;
- User geo location.
If the option of collecting by competitors is indicated, the service will offer to choose: by followers, by subscribes or all together. It can be useful if one competitor has many bots in subscribers, and another subscribes to thousands of commercial accounts.
During collecting a database of hashtags, a useful additional function “Except duplicates” is also available. This will help save a lot of time by eliminating the checking of accounts that use the same hashtag several times.
Geo location selection can also be made more specific with the in-depth keyword searches. At the same time, a user-friendly interface will visually display all information in a special window with a map.
Collection of contacts
Whichever targeting you choose, you can always choose Collect Additional Data. At the same time, the service collects telephone numbers, e-mail, profile's description and user's personal site. The contact database will allow you to work more effectively in the future with the collected list of profiles.
During collecting additional data points from the account will be spent 3 times faster.
The process of collecting a list of accounts
After selecting the type of targeting, you can proceed directly to collecting the database. After pressing the “Start collecting” button, the service starts to work. The screen will show the number of collected accounts, and you can stop the process at any time.
The speed of the work was chosen in such a way that the Instagram algorithms did not regard it as a suspicious activity. Thus, the process of parsing can be called safe for accounts. Of course, Instagram likes to change the work of the algorithms at the most unexpected moment, so we recommend using a non-core profile for parsing.
After the end of the work, it will be possible to upload the resulting list of accounts in the .txt format, start collecting again or filter the list. Filtering is available by the following parameters:
- The number of subscribers / subscriptions;
- Profile privacy;
- Commercial / non-commercial account.
Filtering works the same way as collecting a list. It can be stopped at any time. After filtering, it will be available to upload the list to .svg. You can do a lot of actions with the base of profiles. For example, subscribe, like or add specific comments.
The Zengram team understands that there are dozens of similar services on the Internet, the sole purpose of which is to extract more money from users. Therefore, the first time using Parser is free, so that you can form own opinion about the service. Free usage time depends on the amount of material for analysis.
