Combin: Digital Social Media Manager – Software for Interaction and Followers

Instagram Marketing – Little Break from Daily Instagram Marketing? Many wish for their own start up or as independent software instead of a social media manager. Whether for reasons of time or cost it doesn’t matter, just at the beginning start ups have to turn every cent around. Practical would be a tool for Instagram that automatically sets qualitative likes and comments. What’s the matter with you? Get range! The more interaction, the better. To employ your own social media manager is still unthinkable for many. Not only in start ups, even larger companies prefer to create another job in sales, rather than for “likes and comments”. The community and reach on Instagram is so important. Here’s the alternative: Combin 2.0

Combin for your Start Up: Software instead of Social Media Manager

In our XXL interview on Instagram Tips, we’ve talked a lot about community management and maintenance so far. Interaction is an extremely big buzzword for social media managers and, of course, social media agencies. You yourself probably won’t have much time (just as a founder) each day to go on other Instagram Channels, look at new photos, liken them or comment on them. Combin provides the alternative, automatically or semi-automatically, the tool actively posts likes and comments to previously selected accounts and postings. It can even follow other people if you wish. Everything almost 100% automatic. Anyone who saves three or four hours a day as a result will quickly have a few working days a month that can be used for something else – an unbeatable advantage.

That’s why today we take a close look at what Combin 2.0 can do, in the big test report.

Here you will first find an overview of the most important information and can also compare many postings with each other, which is difficult on the instagram.

  • Number of contributions and possibility to compare
  • number of subscribers / subscribed and the ratio (the smaller the value, the better)
  • Single postings can be opened in Pop Up to take a closer look at comments

Analyze Postings

Which of the current photos and videos on your Instagram channel work well and which don’t? Just find out by sorting the likes and comments by number. This gives you a quick overview of your most successful postings. With the new data you can draw conclusions for your social media strategy and optimize your new postings. The filter function can be found on the start page (top right).

Search function at a glance: Find successful postings

After the analysis of the own channel, it goes now to the competition analysis.

Finding successful postings to optimize your strategy

What the social media concept costs a lot of time for Instagram is the conception of the content. What do you see in photos? What’s in the description? Do we use galleries? Use the knowledge of many: Crowd sourcing. What do people like on Instagram? Find out by using Combin’s search function.

The search feature allows you to search content on Instagram, using hashtags, locations, and subscribers of your competitors. In this way, popular postings can be found on competitors’ channels. Especially for social media managers a strong tool to find successful content to optimize their own strategy. Summarized allows the search function:

  • Get range through Likes / Comments from smaller Instagram Accounts (Pay attention)
  • Combined search with hashtags, locations and subscribers of competitors possible
  • Selective search for content from competitors / other channels
  • Help for inspiration and optimization of your own strategy

Start search: Set filter and go

Let’s start by entering our desired parameters in the search mask. In principle, two functions are available. Filtering by posts, which means which posts are popular for a particular topic? More precisely, which contributions are popular in a particular place? More precisely you can also say, which contributions have managed to get more than 10,000 Likes or comments in the XY section? This is a quick and easy way to find the strongest postings on Instagram.

Search filter for posts

Search filter for posts includes various parameters. The Hashtags are particularly important of course.

  • hashtags
  • location
  • period
  • Number of Likes (from / to)
  • Number of comments (from / to)

In addition, there are now even more advanced analysis functions such as:

  • Gender
  • language
  • User must have been active last week
  • Number of subscribers (from / to)
  • number of subscriptions (from / to)

Search filter by user

The search filter for users is very interesting, because here you can search the user accounts directly! This includes the following parameters:

  • Search for: subscribers, subscriptions, commentators (!), likes, bio, user list

In addition there are extended analysis functions like in the article Search filter:

  • Gender
  • language
  • User must have been active last week
  • Number of subscribers (from / to)
  • number of subscriptions (from / to)

Fun Fact! For every VIP and Boulevard magazine a dream (by commentators), because now you can for example easily and quickly see where certain people have left comments, even for a long time. Who’s talking about who? Quickly solved thanks to Combin.

evaluation, analysis and results

As a fashion magazine we naturally take a look at the topic: Beauty. Let’s take a closer look at what’s currently in vogue in the eyeliner segment.

Option 1: Trend analysis – filter by hashtag #Eyeliner and setting of 1.000 – maximum Likes

There is also the possibility for start ups and self-employed to get more reach by commenting on smaller accounts or postings of the accounts or by giving a like.

Option 2: Get attention / range – filter according to Hashtag #Eyeliner as well as setting from 10 – 50 Likes

Which Hashtag is really interesting for you and your Start Up? You can find out how to do it here: Instagram Tips.

After Analysis: Likes, Comments and Follow (Interaction)

After the analysis of the contributions, the interaction can begin! Combin operates fully automatically or semi-automatically as required. Automatic means that you interact with each posting step by step. Here comes another advantage of Combin, which many other social media tools do not offer in comparison, the selection can also be made manually, Combin then only goes through the selected images. After this decision we can start

Tip to get more range: If you go specifically to postings, with few likes, smaller users will be quicker to notice you and your company. If postings get a lot of likes, your like on the photo or video won’t stand out that much.

Now all you have to do is decide whether Combin should work automatically or semi-automatically. If you prefer to make a manual preselection now, just mark your favorite photos and videos. Then you can start with a click on the icons (below)!


Finding influencers with Combin

Lifehack! Combin already used as Influencer search engine? In the search for the right influencer, many people always have the problem of finding the right people. The search is demanding and is usually done manually by hand. Profile by profile is viewed and the results are also transferred manually into an Excel table. Combine as an influencer search engine, how ingenious is that?

If you are looking for a specific type of influencer, you can easily find different (similar) user profiles through Combin. By simply using a certain hash tag in your search function and setting the number of subscribers parameter. Through Hashtag + number of subscribers Combin limits the results exactly. Tip: Use hashtags in the local languages to find bloggers from a specific country. Of course, you can also do this with the location, but then the people must also have marked themselves on the spot. Since influencers are on the road a lot, I find the search with hashtags in a certain language, e.g. French, Italian or German much more practical.

Tasks Assistant and Monitoring

Of course, you can not only perform analyses and actions, Combin also allows classic monitoring (performance measurement). You can find the monitoring of your own instagram channel in the menu under “Statistics”. Under “Tasks” you will find all jobs you created before, e.g. Likes on Hashtag #XY, comments on Hashtag #ABC and Follows on Hashtag #DEF, but only if your account has a maximum of 500 followers. Smart!

Combin saves a lot of time before monitoring. The advantage: No well paid social media manager has to waste his or her time with elaborate likening and commenting of content, instead you rely on Combin for automatic commenting, likening and following – with quality.

advantages: Analysis and interaction through Combin

  • Extreme time savings, thus also cost savings
