Instagram Comment Bot: Everything You Need to Know in 2021

People are always going to try to cut corners. It’s human nature and occasionally, it works. However, when it comes to an Instagram comment bot, there’s actually no need to cheat. At least, not anymore.

So, what is an Instagram comment bot?

The short version is, there are two kinds of Instagram comment bots:

  1. Old Instagram comment bots that comment on other peoples posts from a fake profile, and 
  2. New Instagram comment bots, which get more comments on your own posts from real profiles. 

So, which would you prefer? A bot that comments on others’ Instagram posts, or a bot that gets more engagement and reach on your own content on Instagram?

Hopefully, that’s a rhetorical question because personally, I’d much rather increase the amount of comments on my own Instagram content. Not to mention, generate that engagement organically from real people.

Engagement is the key to successfully growing your follower count on Instagram. To get new followers, you need to reach new people. And to increase Instagram reach, you need to get engagement, such as comments, on your posts.

Today we’re going to cover why there’s no reason to use the old Instagram comment bots and why you’d be crazy not to use the new Instagram comment bot. Here’s our agenda:

Instagram Comment Bots

Since there are two different Instagram comment bots to define, I’m going to continue to refer to them as the “old” Instagram comment bots, and the “new” Instagram comment bots. 

To further clarify, the new generation Instagram comment bot is brand new and made it’s debut in 2021. Old comment bots have been around for nearly a decade, and grow less and less popular each year.

Let’s start with the new version of Instagram comment bots, which are changing the way marketers think about Instagram altogether.

The Best Instagram Comment Bot in 2021

Let me introduce you to InstaChamp by MobileMonkey, which takes an entirely different and immensely more effective approach to growing your presence on Instagram.

Instagram comment auto-responders allow you to send private automated messages to people who comment on your posts.

The message is sent to the commenter immediately after the comment is published.  

To trigger a comment auto-responder, users need to comment on a post using a specific keyword. For example, below you’ll see an Instagram post with a CTA (call-to-action) to comment with the word SATURN to enter into an Instagram giveaway. 

Comment auto-responders are extremely powerful and viral in nature because comments equal engagement. More engagement triggers Instagram’s algorithm, which results in more impressions of your post. 

Prior to the launch of this tool, we already have an all-star example of virality from MobileMonkey Founder, Larry Kim. 

Larry has a large social media presence with over a million followers across the major social networks. His most successful Instagram post, by far, uses the new Instagram comment bot to drive his CTA.

Here’s Larry’s post, which has received over 550 comments in just 5 weeks!

If you swipe or click through the example carousel post above, you’ll see that the CTA (call-to-action) in the captions and the last slide of the carousel is to:

“Type “AUTODM” in the comments section below to get instant access to all 15 Instagram auto DM use cases.”

This is a completely new way to attach a call-to-action to a post, which in turn has the effect of boosting the post significantly.

The results speak for themselves. In addition to the +500 comments, this post generated: 

  • 700% increase in reach outside of Larry’s own followers.
  • Nearly 100 bookmarks.
  • 25x Larry’s normal post reach. 
  • 69% of the post reach was outside of Larry’s existing follower base.
  • Well above Larry’s average new follower count (in the thousands) for the month.

Test it out for yourself by commenting BOOST on this new post from Larry now!

Essentially, InstaChamp is an Instagram comment bot that allows users to boost a post on Instagram for free, which is pretty amazing.

Why InstaChamp is the best Instagram comment bot

What we find is by asking for a simple engagement, like a comment, InstaChamp users get 3x to 5x more engagement on their posts, on average!

Clearly, one of the best use cases for comment auto-responders is to tease your content and then ask for a comment for access to the full article, infographic, white paper, etc.

There are multiple challenges faced by Instagram marketers addressed with this one solution: 

  • Lack of locations where you can place clickable links. 
  • Variety of effective CTAs marketers can place in their content.
  • Getting people to comment and engage with your posts.

Think about it, where can you place links on Instagram? Most marketers ‘go-to’ call to action is, “Click my bio link for more information.”

However, you can always include a clickable link in a DM. Therefore, by sending a DM to users when they comment on your post, not only do you have an easy CTA for followers to complete, but you also have an opportunity to share a link and drive traffic to your site.

Additionally, the more comments you get on your post, the more visibility your posts will receive.

In fact, 69% of the people reached by Larry’s example above were not already following him. 

That means the majority of the people that were shown this post were potential new followers, which is exactly how to grow your follower base on Instagram.

Prior to using InstaChamp, Larry’s average posts only get maybe a third of this kind of traction and around 10% of the engagement are from people who do not follow him.

Instagram rewards posts with high-levels of engagement. That’s why the Comment Auto-Responder is so ingenious. Every time someone comments on the post, Instagram’s algorithm is triggered favorably. 

In return, Larry’s post gets shown to more people, and with each new comment, the likelihood of reaching new eyes, and therefore getting new followers on Instagram, increases.

Without the InstaChamp Comment Auto-Responder, none of this would have been possible.

So, if you want to know how to boost a post on Instagram for free, InstaChamp by MobileMonkey is your answer.

The “Old” Instagram Comment Bots

Up until the release of InstaChamp, Instagram comment bots were exclusively bots that would comment on the posts of people in your target audience. All you had to do was define a comment that would work for most posts on Instagram, such as, “Wow, that’s so cool!”

Then, your Instagram comment bot would post that exact same comment over and over on as many posts as you could until your account either got suspended or banned from Instagram.

In return, the hope was to gain attention from people in your target audience in the form of likes, follows, and comments on your own content.

Or, you could even build an Instagram bot that comments on your own posts. However, that’s not effective either, and I’ll show you why, next.

Instagram comment bots to stay away from and why they don’t work

So, why do the old Instagram comment bots no longer work?

Unfortunately, there are a lot of problems with this outdated strategy, most notably:

  • Fake Comments Do Not Work: People started noticing and calling out Instagram profiles using comment bots years ago. So, if you want to get a bad reputation on Instagram, by all means, use one of these old comment bots. Disingenuous and blatantly fake comments are highly frowned upon and even offensive to those growing their influence on Instagram legitimately.
  • Instagram’s Algorithm will NOT be happy: When all you do is comment on other peoples posts and get very little comments on your own posts in return, Instagram notices that! The result is your content will lose its reach because Instagram’s algorithm is being told that your content isn’t worth sharing with anyone. 
  • Violate Instagram’s Terms of Service: And the biggest problem of them all, the old comment bots are not allowed on Instagram because they violate their terms of service. It’s very easy to get your Instagram account blocked or banned by using this type of comment bot, follower bot, or like bot.

Even if your Instagram comment bot comments on your own posts, sure you’ll get extra comments on your posts, which may look nice. However, that doesn’t increase your reach because your comment bot’s followers aren’t real. 

Instagram doesn’t reward comments from fake accounts, as opposed to the new, 100% Instagram-approved version of comment bots, which generate many comments from real people, organically!

That’s what Instagram does reward: Organic engagement

To sum up the old Instagram comment bot strategy: They’ve become annoying, inauthentic, and no longer work. It’s really that simple.

Frequently asked questions about Instagram comment bots

Q: What is an Instagram comment bot?

A: There are two kinds of Instagram comment bots:

  1. The traditional Instagram comment bot is a computer program that automatically posts comments on Instagram posts. Comment bots can be used to promote or publicize a business, or to get more engagement on a particular post. They can also be used to respond to comments on a post, or to start conversations with other users. Traditional Instagram comment bots carry the risk of a user getting banned by Instagram for violating Instagram’s terms of service.
  2. A new type of Instagram comment bot that is 100% Instagram approved is an automated DM comment bot. The DM automation will instantly reply to any user that comments on an Instagram post, story, story mention or DM. 

While the traditional Instagram comment bot carries serious risk to the user, and to a business that is using it, as Instagram may disable an account responsible for utilizing it, the new Instagram-approved comment bot enables instant gratification to commenters, therefore increasing engagement and followers, and aids the business by automating processes that are repetitive and time consuming.

Q: What is the old Instagram comment bot?

A: Old Instagram comment bots were typically only used to comment on the photos of individuals in your target audience up until now. All you had to do was build a remark that could be used for most Instagram posts, such as, “Wow, that’s fantastic!”

Then, your Instagram comment bot would publish that same comment on as many posts as possible until your account is disabled or banned from Instagram.

Q: Is it possible to use old Instagram comment bots?

A: Unfortunately, there are several issues with this outdated method, including the fact that:

  • People have been spotting and denouncing Instagram accounts employing comment bots for years. If you want to acquire a negative reputation on Instagram, then using this comment bot is perfect for you. Dishonest and obviously fraudulent comments are strictly frowned upon, as they denigrate those with genuine influence on Instagram.
  • When you just comment on people’s posts and receive few comments in return, Instagram recognizes this! As a result, your material’s reach will be reduced due to the fact that Instagram’s algorithm believes your material isn’t worth sharing with anybody.
  • The most serious problem, however, is that the old comment bots are not permitted on Instagram because they violate their terms of service. Using a comment bot, follower bot, or like bot to get your Instagram account banned or disabled is quite simple.

Q: What is the best Instagram comment bot?

A: The best Instagram comment bot is one that automatically replies to any user that comments on a post or story, offering value and instant feedback to the commenter.

InstaChamp offers an Instagram comment auto-responder that allows you to send private automated messages to people who comment on your post.

In order to trigger the comment auto-responder, you’ll need to set up your account in InstaChamp with specific keywords.

For example, in your post, your caption reads “Comment SATURN on this post to win…”

When your followers comment on your post with the keyword “SATURN”, the comment auto-responder kicks in and starts automated DM conversations that can be used for giveaways, registrations, bookings and content.

Q: How effective is Instachamp with a comment auto-responder?

A: An example may provide the best insight into the effectiveness of the power of InstaChamp:

Larry created a post that included instructions for followers to type in a specific keyword in the comments with a specific call to action.

The results concluded the following:

  • 700% increase in reach outside of own followers
  • Approximately 100 bookmarks
  • 25x normal post reach
  • 69% of the post reach was outside of existing follower base
  • Well above average new follower count (in the thousands) for the month

The proof is in the pudding!

Q: How do you make an Instagram comment bot?

A: Here’s how to build an Instagram comment bot using InstaChamp:

Step #1: Create a free InstaChamp account and link it to your Instagram account.

Step #2: Make fresh material for Instagram. If you’re searching for inspiration, here are a few pointers:

  • The Right & Wrong Way To Use Carousels On Instagram
  • How to make a professional Instagram Reel

Step #3: Add a call-to-action to your content as well as the caption for your post.

Step #4: Create a new Comment Auto-Responder in InstaChamp that is triggered by the keyword you chose.

Step #5: After you’ve published your material, begin watching in amazement as the comments start to roll in!

Q: What are some Instagram auto DM examples to help boost conversions?

A: Here are 15 ways to boost your conversion and save time!

1. Get more followers by increasing Instagram engagement. 

The name of the game on Instagram is unquestionably “engagement.” And it’s engagement that will bring you more of the followers you desire.

MobileMonkey makes it simple to establish Instagram auto-reply DMs. Auto DMs are also quite effective at increasing interaction and gaining followers on Instagram.

2. Use a menu-based chatbot to greet people on Instagram & link to popular offers.

Use the Instagram Page Welcomer tool from MobileMonkey to establish an automated welcoming message.

There’s a menu of options for the user to choose from. Each option leads the user down a different path in order to direct the user to the best possible landing page.

Using a chat menu is fantastic because Instagram users who send you a DM may ‘pick their own route’ by choosing from a variety of themes that interest them. Then, at the end of each chat menu selection, offer a link to send Instagram visitors to your website.

3. Instagram auto DM example of an influencer sending traffic to an online training program.

Here’s a real life Instagram auto DM example of how Sue B. Zimmerman (@TheInstagramExpert), an Instagram influencer with over 135,000 followers, is using MobileMonkey’s Page Welcomer tool. 

Sue’s Page Welcomeer is designed to send visitors to her training courses and programs, which teach budding Instagram influencers how to develop an engaged follower base.

First and foremost, Sue has utilized a menu-based chatbot on her Page Welcomer (which we discussed in our #2 Instagram auto DM example) to provide numerous alternatives for first-time messagers.

Following that, provide value with one of your most popular offers or additional information about a product or service.

Sue’s CTA at the end of a quick conversation is to go check out her online training course on “The 3 Keys to Getting Engaged Instagram Followers and Buyers.” I arrive on Sue’s landing page for her free training course when I click on the link.

4. Instagram growth hack: Build a lead generation funnel to Instagram from Clubhouse.

Clubhouse has exploded in 2021 and is one of the fastest growing social media applications in years.

However, lead generation from Clubhouse is somewhat of a challenge:

  • There’s no advertising on the Clubhouse app.
  • You cannot send direct messages to your Clubhouse social network.
  • Links added to the Clubhouse app are not clickable.

MobileMonkey Founder and CEO, Larry Kim, has found a clever way to build a marketing funnel from Clubhouse to Instagram. This funnel has already generated over 50,000 leads in only a month’s time!

So let’s jump into how to get traffic from Clubhouse:

  • Build a following on Clubhouse.
  • Send traffic to your Instagram profile with CTAs in your Clubhouse bio.
  • Have Clubhouse users DM or use Messenger to contact you on Instagram using a keyword.
  • Use MobileMonkey’s Instagram Tools to instantly respond to your direct messages, and send that Instagram traffic to your website.

5. Send ad traffic to your bot with Instagram direct message ads.

The best thing about Instagram Direct Message advertising and Messenger advertisements is that they both have incredibly high conversion rates and result in people having lively discussions with your company. This offers a pleasurable user experience that allows you to quickly gather contact information, qualify prospects, and generate high-quality leads.

6. Do a giveaway on Instagram where people enter with post comments, Story mentions, and DMs.

Instagram is an excellent location to hold a contest, give away, or sweepstakes. However, unlike running a contest on Facebook or setting up your own landing page, monitoring giveaway entries or individual contestant data on Instagram is difficult.

You can access your Instagram contest data and new leads from a contest with MobileMonkey since it’s simple to track your campaign data as well as capture and store new leads. That’s because you may utilize numerous MobileMonkey tools for Instagram in order to create the contest or giveaways themselves, which are the mechanisms that drive them.

7. Grow your SMS list for a VIP community you can re-engage at any time.

SMS text messaging is a great way to communicate with your customers. It’s also an excellent channel for a mobile-friendly community, like Instagram, to use.

MobileMonkey provides business SMS marketing solutions that allow them to send customers and customer care messages in bulk, with helpful features like:

8. Send an Instagram auto DM to people who comment on your posts.

Below is an Instagram auto DM example of a Comment Auto-Responder triggered by the keyword “SATURN”. 

Here are a few other options for how to use Comment Auto-Responders:

  • Send Instagram traffic to one of your landing pages.
  • Opt-in followers to your email newsletter, SMS text messages, Facebook Messenger promos, and other communication channels. 
  • Capture their contact information using one of many lead generation tools from MobileMonkey.

9. Surface valuable messages in a high-volume Instagram DM inbox.

The MobileMonkey inbox is your central hub for all your Instagram communications. 

From the inbox, you have many tools at your disposal: 

  • See everyone that has interacted with your Instagram bot over time.
  • Review all chatbot dialogues and live agent conversations.
  • Build rich-data customer profiles over time to provide great support and offer the right deals at the right time. 

10. Add multiple users to your Instagram message inbox.

With multi-user inbox management tools, you can take complete control of your Instagram inbox.

MobileMonkey allows you to scale message volume and even increase your send limits per day.

11. Incentivize user-generated content (UGC) to increase customer loyalty.

By sending an Instagram auto message to people who mention you or share your material in their Instagram Story, you may increase CLTV.

When someone mentions your Instagram handle in their Instagram Story, MobileMonkey will instantly start a conversation by sending that person an auto DM.

You may thank your consumers for promoting your material, and you can even provide them a link to a recent marketing, discount, or relevant landing page in the same conversation.

12. Qualify and capture leads on Instagram. Plus, how to get notified using hot lead alerts and notifications.

Ask a series of lead qualification questions up front and choose whether or not to schedule a call or send the person into one of your marketing funnels. This can all be done using MobileMonkey.

13. Sell more products with Instagram auto DM tools.

There are a variety of ways to increase product sales on Instagram. The finest approach to sell your goods or service online is through your own website, though. As a result, you should be considering how to generate Instagram traffic to your website.

You won’t have to rely on one link in your Instagram bio anymore because you can include a link to any Instagram auto DM, such as:

  • Any auto-reply to your Instagram message inbox.
  • Responses to comments on your Instagram posts.
  • Instagram auto DMs sent to people who mention you in their Instagram Story.
  • Automatic greeting messages with the MobileMonkey Page Welcomer.

14. Answer frequently asked questions (FAQs) automatically. 

Build a chatbot with MobileMonkey based on an interactive question answering system for Instagram, using keyword-based Q&A triggers and NLP (natural language processing) technology.

15. Grow your email list to re-engage your audience at any time.

New Instagram tools from MobileMonkey empower your community growth with tools to: 

  • Capture leads and build contact lists. 
  • Automatically store, tag, segment, and export contacts.
  • Reengage contacts via email, SMS, Messenger, and more via automated workflows.
