Target media on Instagram using hashtags.

Targeting by tags allows you to target media based on the hashtags Instagram users have added to their photos/videos.

It's important that you do your research to ensure that you're targeting high quality hashtags. Instagress works best when you engage in high quality targeting.

Select targeting source

In order to Like, Comment, or Follow based on Tags, select Targeting source: Tags in the Targeting.

Then, scroll down to Tags to input all of the hashtags that you want to target.


Targeting media by tags means that your Instagress Activity will interact with other Instagram accounts based on the tags you select.

In order to add some Tags just click on the Add button. Simply type in a hashtag and click the green Search button to see other recommended hashtags. Select all the hashtags you want to add to your Targeting, and then scroll down and click the green Add button.

Be sure to monitor your hashtags. If you find that certain groups of hashtags are not producing the desired results, test different hashtag groups, or other Targeting methods.
