+ DIRECT Messages

One of the best ways to communicate with followers on Instagram is sending Direct Messages in order to increase the conversion.

Now you can send auto direct messages to:

1. Each new follower (welcome message): if you select this option, your message will be sent to every new followers.

2. All existing followers: if you select this option, your message will be sent to your own followers. After choosing this option, you can see a new option called “Custom filter”. With “custom filter” you can limit your target audience.

3. Custom user list: if you select this option, you will see a file that you should enter all Instagram usernames (They can be non followers or your followers) that you want to send message to them. You should enter one Instagram username in each line and You should use “@” character before each username (exp. @username).

You are able to create variations of some words. So every time the message is generated from the template it's going to be unique with no additional effort from your side. Let's have a look at the message format:

{Hello|Hi|Hey} @username, {thanks|thank you} for your follow.

You can create options for any word. Whatever you want to customize goes into the brackets {} and all variants are separated inside using | (usually located above Enter on keyboard).

The example above would produce 6 unique messages:

Hello @username, thanks for your follow

Hi @username, thanks for your follow

Hey @username, thanks for your follow

Hello @username, thank you your follow

Hi @username, thank you for your follow

Hey @username, thank you for your follow
