Instagram Automation – Mass Planner Instagram Settings Tutorial

Edit: Mass Planner is NOT available anymore but this tutorial works for JARVEE, an advanced automation tool that can automate on several social media platforms.

If you’re wondering what Mass Planner Instagram settings are safe for your account, this tutorial is meant to help you set up your account safely using the same settings that I start with for every account.

I’m assuming you have already downloaded and installed your copy of Mass Planner. In this tutorial we’re going to cover the following 2 instances:

  1. You’re looking to run less than six Instagram accounts and are running Mass Planner on your PC …. or
  2. You’re looking to run unlimited Instagram accounts on Mass Planner installed on your PC or a VPS in which case you’re going to need proxies.

PS: Need help setting up your Instagram account on Mass Planner? I can help you with that. Find me on Skype (@diablo2562) and I’ll take you through it via Teamviewer (Free version). Just make sure to have Mass Planner already installed on your computer to save on time.

The following bonus information is included in this tutorial:

  • Finding target accounts
  • Increasing conversion/follow-back rate/
  • Finding hashtags

So let’s jump right in.

Tutorial 1: Setting up your Instagram accounts (less than 6) on Mass Planner installed on your PC – No need for proxies.

Mass Planner Instagram Settings Start Mass planner and log in with the login credentials you registered with. Once you’re logged in, it should look all clean like shown below (I’ve backed up and cleared all my accounts from Mass Planner for the purpose of this tutorial).  mass planner settings Instagram

Go to SOCIAL PROFILES and the then click on ADD PROFILE. As of writing this tutorial, you’ll notice that Mass Planner can automate on several platforms, namely: Facebook, Google Plus, automate on Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, Instagram, Tumblr and even Email.  mass planner settings Instagram add profiles

We’ll limit ourselves to Instagram settings for this tutorial so please proceed by selecting ADD PROFILE under Instagram.  mass planner settings instagram account add

Adding your Instagram account on Mass Planner is so simple. All you need to do is type in your Instagram username and password and hit VERIFY ACCOUNT. There’s an option for proxy but we won’t be needing that unless we’re going to be running Mass Planner on a VPS or if we’re planning to run more than 6 accounts. This is because Mass Planner will be running on our own IP address (the one your PC is on).

If you’re planning to run more than one Instagram accounts, it is advisable to put a unique name where it says ‘Instagram Account 1‘ for each account in order to make it easy to identify each account from a list of all the accounts you’re running.  mass planner settings instagram add

I have typed in my username and password for this tutorial and I hit VERIFY ACCOUNT as shown above. It should take a few seconds before the STATUS changes to VALID. You will notice that the account description field will automatically fill with details about the account you’ve just added. This information will come in handy especially if you’re running multiple accounts and one gets hit with a verification. mass planner settings instagram valid

We’re done adding our 1st account (without proxy).

Tutorial 2: Setting up your Instagram accounts (unlimited) on Mass Planner installed on your PC or a VPS (Proxies needed!).

This process is almost identical to the first except we’re going to tick Show Proxy Settings.

1st things 1st! We’re going to order for proxies from a reputable proxies supplier. So head over to and order Dedicated proxies. I chose to run all my accounts with dedicated proxies because they’re way safer than semi-dedicated proxies mass planner instagram proxy tutorial

Within 10 minutes of ordering, your proxies should have arrived in your inbox.

Most people would argue 1 proxy can run up to 3 Instagram accounts but I wouldn’t do more than 2 accounts on a single proxy.

Let’s add one proxy and hit VERIFY ACCOUNT.

With that, we’re ready to start warming up our Instagram account.

Mass Planner Instagram Settings

Click on TOOLS in the left bar. Here you have all the tools available on Mass Planner. There’s also a horizontal scrollbar at the very bottom that lets us view more tools.

mass planner instagram settings tutorial This is going to be our blueprint for the first ~ 2 weeks (Warming up our account(s)): We’re going to start following and liking followers of our target accounts. At the end of this phase, you should expect to have gained between 500 – 700 followers.

Now back to the screenshot above, under FOLLOW click on Details >>  mass planner instagram settings follow

Here, we’re only going to be focussing on these 2 tabs: Settings and Follow Sources, but before we do, here’s some bonus information on how we’re going to increase the conversion/follow-back rate.

Edit: I forgot to mention that we’re also going to increase our follow rate by 30 each day. See the screenshot below. warming up Instagram account

Bonus: Increasing conversion rate

A lot of people don’t realize that you can easily increase the conversion rate by paying attention to some seemingly minor details. Accounts with huge followings will seldom follow you back. You also want to minimize the chances of following bot accounts since they’re completely useless to you and will rarely interact with your content.

So here’s how we’re going to avoid these types of accounts:

  • We’re only going to follow users with a profile picture,
  • Users with a minimum of 3 posts
  • Users with whose bios do not contain the following keywords: buy, follow, click, link, free, hack, followers, contact. Feel free to add any others that you can think of.
  • Users with a maximum of 400 followers and a maximum of 1500 followings
  • Users who have posted in the last 90 days
  • Skip users following our account, and…
  • Like between 1-2 latest posts of users after following.

See the screenshot below.  best mass planner settings

Now let’s add some target accounts. Click on Follow Sources.

Bonus: Finding/Selecting Target Accounts

Selecting the right target accounts (accounts whose followers you’re interested in) is extremely crucial for our success on Instagram. Here’s what we need to consider:

  • Small to medium accounts tend to have far greater engagement that big accounts. If we target these, it’s very likely that our engagement is going to be great.
  • It’s easier to find target account on mobile than on desktop. Say for instance we’re looking for target accounts in the travel niche. I picked @gypsea_lust from the search. Right next to the Follow button, there’s an arrow pointing down. Press on it to see similar accounts as suggested by Instagram. You should now filter the once you picked to make sure they fit what we’ve talked about above. selecting target accounts Instagram

Once you have selected your target accounts, click on Follow Sources and select ‘Follow friends of target accounts‘ as illustrated below.  mass planner instagram settings follow sources

Now type in the usernames of the target accounts and then click on ADD ACCOUNT FOLLOWERS.

You’re all set!

When 2 weeks are over, you can now begin unfollowing based on settings we recommended on our earlier post about the limits on Instagram.

Bonus: Finding Hashtags for Your Content

I must apologize for having not done a tutorial on how to schedule posts on Mass Planner, suffice to say, it’s actually not that necessary for me to do, as the process is quite self-explanatory. If there will be a demand for it I will do a tutorial in future articles.

Now if you’re wondering how to get hashtags for your content, head over to and type in a keyword in your niche. Something like ‘pets‘.  finding hashtags instagram

http://hashtagify(.)me (without the brackets) is another great option for sourcing relevant hashtags.

Collect enough for your content and save them for later use.
