Jarvee Video Tutorial

Love learning by watching videos?

Me too.

I created a video tutorial of this guide, which I highly recommend you watch by clicking below:

Connecting Your Instagram Profile

Specifically you want to add your Instagram profile into Jarvee.

To do this, visit the Social Profiles tab on the Side Bar:

Jarvee Social Profiles

Click on Add Profile:

Jarvee Add Profile

Select the Instagram option:

Jarvee Add Instagram Profile
Note: You can import accounts too. Click SHOW DEMO IMPORT FILE for an example import file.

Next, you want to enter your Instagram account information:

Jarvee Instagram Profile Settings

1 — This is option information you want to enter. For example, the account name could be your clients name and then the Instagram handle like so: Aaron - @itsaaronward.

2 — If you have proxies for your accounts you want to enable the Show Proxy Settings and enter the information here.

Recommended proxies: HighProxies

3 — Enter the username and password you use to login to your account.

After you have entered this information, click Verify Account:

Jarvee Verify Account

You should see the Status change to VALID if your account information is correct:

Jarvee Status Valid

Please feel free to explore the other tabs such as Edit Profile or FL Import (if you previously used FollowLiker) and options available for your Instagram account. However, as your account is now connected there's no need to touch the other settings.

Changing The Default Modules

Next, you want to change the default modules in the tools section.

Click on Tools in the sidebar:

Jarvee Tools

Then at the bottom, click on Manage Columns:

Jarvee Tools Manage Columns

You will want to setup your columns to be the following, this is going to change the blue bar the arrows are pointing to, removing unnecessary information:

Jarvee Tools Visible Columns

Select these options and once done close the 'Select visible columns' window:

  • Name
  • Like
  • Comment
  • Follow
  • Unfollow
  • Actions
  • Like Comments
Please feel free to adjust the column widths to suit your screen size.

Next, you want to click on More Tools:

Jarvee More Tools

Click on Manage Tabs:

Jarvee Manage Tabs

And have it setup as the following:

Jarvee Manage Tabs Selection

Enable these tabs:

  • Follow
  • Unfollow
  • Like
  • Contact
  • Direct Messages
  • Manage Comments
  • Repost
  • Like Comments

You want to do this to remove the pointless automation tasks, keep in mind you can always re-enable these at a later point. For now, you just want the important ones. This makes the interface much easier to navigate.

Once done, close the window and you're ready for the next section.

Follow Tool Setup

The first tool you want to setup is the Follow tool.

The idea: You want to follow users who are engaging with competitors content on Instagram. These are the most likely users to follow you back and engage with your content. If you want to learn about finding your best target/competitor accounts or sources, check out Instagram Masterminds.

To get to the follow tool, visit the Tools section and click on More Tools:

Jarvee More Tools

There are a lot of settings to play with here.

Below is the best recommended settings to gain targeted and engaged followers:

Jarvee Follow Settings

Status: Turn this switch on/off

Run Timers

Wait between: 3-5 minutes

Follow between: 2 and 5 people with a delay between 38-48 seconds between each follow.

Sleep time: no need to add a sleep timer, leave it as default

Days: Run it every day of the week

Follow Limits

Follow a maximum of 50-75 per day. Increase each day with 50 until it reaches 800 max followers per day.

Click on the Follow Sources tab:

These however, are the recommended follow sources to use for maximum return on investment:
