OK, so this is one hell of an article I’ve been waiting to write for a long time. I didn’t because when I was about to, Instagram decided to change its API in their algorithm and the BIG HOLY SHIT happened with me. I got an email from MassPlanner Team,
Hi guys, We know how much you love MassPlanner and we appreciate your support all this time. Unfortunately, we have some sad news for you today. Due to a request from Instagram, we were forced to shut down our services. Effective immediately you will no longer be able to access our services. Thank you for understanding, The MassPlanner team.
At first, I was doubtful, is this TRUE? Then I checked out www.massplanner.com. And…… They are gone!!! 🙁
Still, the website and its services are down….
I feel sorry for these guys but more than that I was in the situation to shut down the whole earning process of mine. Wasn’t had a chance to sleep on that night, I think the overall then decide “Take Away” if……”One Door Closed, Another Will Open”…that should be the spirit of Internet Marketer, because, here nothing will last long. You always need to be ready for changes.
I was making $50 to $100 PER DAY back in 2016 with Instagram, on autopilot, and my money making strategy, even though after new updates in Instagram, I can still make more than $100 Per Day with it, but the important concern was “Instagram Automation Tool” that I totally lost. But, I don’t want to be on the list of those business owners who wakes up to having their business closed down virtually overnight. So, I searched many tools and lastly ends with GramDominator – Best MassPlanner Alternative for Instagram Marketing.
My Review About The GramDominator
I know many people have probably been trying to crack the code to make an autopilot since MassPlanner shut down its services for Instagram an overnight and I have done it. It isn’t something I invented myself, it came with spending tons of time on the Internet.
A short story – I started it 15 days ago with GramDominator and getting ideas how I can use this software and what it could actually do.
This software was very new for me and I was totally unsure how it works. I took the time to watch the videos that the DominatorHouse team have made to explain how a particular feature is working, although this rarely happened, as the software is very easy-to-use. I must say all videos are really helpful and I would like to recommend it to anyone who is new to the software, as it helps me to avoid making any mistakes.
Here’s My 15 Days Experience with This Software – But Before that, Please Note: All opinions about the software I have expressed here are my own, and I was not compensated for this review in any way! 🙁 Still, I’m writing this post as the software really worth for my business. 🙂
So, shall we continue???
The most important thing about the application I observed is, it’s a powerful piece of software which can increase your business potential. I don’t have to mention what this software can do, as they have nicely featured everything on their website and sales thread. What matters for you is what YOU can do with it!
I added 30 Instagram accounts, 1 proxy for an account and tested out most of the features. I liked the moderation part of the software that allows customizing each campaign accurately, and it helps to avoid unnecessary bans of accounts. If you’re looking to apply your own strategy and want to get a customize software as per your needs, then this program can do this without making a huge change in the core code, and you’ll definitely to be happy to get it.
Here are more to explore….
The Interface –
My first impression about the software is, it’ll immediately get a start by hitting the “Start” button. I expected the interface to be confusing as the software holds loads of features, but it wasn’t for me as I had skimmed the user guide first (which was very informative and straightforward). It took only 5-10 mins to get the whole thing setup and running.
I set my requirements so that the application ran at a fast rate and within an hour after or I can say after clicking the download button on the DominatorHouse Website my program had followed more than 150 users and I had already gained 50 plus followers and 50 plus likes and much more in that one hour. WOW!!
Basically, the part which I loved most is real-time activity log, which lets you to see EXACTLY what are the activities and which campaigns are running at that moment (ex. follow user xxxx, like xxxx user comment, doing comment for xxxx, scraping users from search query xxxx, scraping images from the Hashtags xxxx etc.).
So, I can safely say, the user interface is really very simple and user-friendly, and because I tested this software with 30 accounts and I didn’t get a chance to get messy with mass importing and managing accounts or dealing with other mass activity performance issues. I must say, working speed of the Interface had forced me to write, even a newbie can grasp all the features in a day.
Limits We all Needs to Follow With It –
(1) Followers Limit- Not more than one like every 26-30 seconds. Not more than 50 followers in an hour and not more than 300 followers in a period of 24 hours. The limit will vary as per the type of accounts you’re using. If you’re using new accounts, then you can follow only 50 to 100 users per day and with an aged account, you can follow Max 300 users per day. So, it’s better to use aged accounts for your business. With aged accounts, you can also avoid the chances of account bans. And as an Affiliate Network user I have to follow this 😉 so if you’re too, then pls follow their instructions for better and safe result.
TIP: Never work like a machine. Act like a human, while running any social media automation tool. YES! As an example never follow common figures like 50, 100 150, 200, common….. In this way, you’re notifying Instagram that you’re a machine. So, act like a human and always change the last figure like 47, 89, 123, 185 every day.
(2 Unfollowers Limit – You have to use 12-22 seconds time interval for unfollowing users. You can’t do more than 1000 every 24 hours.
(3) Followers + Likes Limit – Not more than 500 (250 Followers +250 Likes) every 24 hours with the interval of 28 to 38 seconds.
(4) Publishing Limit – You shouldn’t add mass images to a new account, the safe process is, upload only 2-3 images per day with a new account and if your account is aged, then you can upload 9-12 images per day. I experienced this earlier while testing other software and burned many of my accounts because all of them were just mocking.
With New Account –
With Aged Account –
(5) Scraping Limit – There is no limit for scraping data 🙂 but you need to give delay as 60 secs to 120 secs or more for the safety of your accounts.
(6) Likes Limit – Not more than 1 like in every 28- 36 seconds and you can do 350 likes at a time for the period of 24 hours.
(7) Comments Limit – If you want to avoid the situation when Instagram treats your accounts as spam, pls don’t cross the limit of 12-14 comments in an hour with the interval of 350 to 450 seconds.
TIP: You have to act like a human or act like you are just like other 80% who want to be famous on Instagram. So, start responding if someone commented in your post, Interact with your traffic because you’re a real person.
(8) Mention Limits – In the 350 to 450 seconds you can do 5 nicks in a message.
(9) Set a Delay Interval(Randomizing) for Every Action – You have to follow the instructed delay interval for every action to make sure your accounts are not getting banned by Instagram.
NOTE: These limits are installed in the software as per the instructions released by Instagram to use it for business. The pinpoint is if, in the future, Instagram make any changes in its API, then the software will follow it right at the moment and if a user tries to cross any limit mistakenly, the software will show an error message. The error message is warning for users to contact their customer support for butter understanding and to avoid the accounts bans.
And there are still much more to explore…
The Problem I Faced – I did notice that the scraping feature only scrap the users who had commented not what they commented so that the software would scrape only users. I also couldn’t find the feature for Direct Messaging. I have just contacted the DominatorHouse support team about this; hopefully, this is something that will be possible with GramDominator in near future.
One last, it’s not a big deal though I’m sharing that sometimes the software pause for 2-3 minutes before switching from a task to the next task. Maybe it’s my system’s minor fault 🙂
Support Team –
As far as my journey goes, I can say, it’s really good. Before buying GramDominator monthly plan I had many questions to ask about the return policy and what are the basic settings I need to install it. Must say, the support team is very fast in responding and these guys are very patient.
With time, I realized that the support team is praiseworthy, as an experienced Internet marketer, I already dealt with many support teams. But, whenever I chatted with these guys they always demonstrated high priority with my query, whether it’s related to the application or the use of the features or the different usage scenarios, and they always able to help me out. The pinpoint about the support team is you can also be emailed a transcript of the chat session that can also come in handy when you skip some steps (As It Can Happen When You’re learning 100 new Things Back to Back). I typically got a response within 5 to 10 mins in working days and within 1 to 2 hours during off days. The language wasn’t 100% professional but the solution was perfect. So, the DominatorHouse team stays on top of customer support! It feels so good when you know there is someone who will be reassured you whenever you have a problem. You just contact them by dropping a message in Skype or can make a call or can shoot an email. I’m confident that you will get you answer ASAP 😀
Is it Worth the Price??
My initial concern was – at nearly $10 (actually $9.95) per month and $79.95 per year (though the plan is fully featured, which really NICE) isn’t exactly the cheapest option I was searching for. Now, I have been running this software from past 15 days, and I didn’t regret spending that much money for it, but I definitely do feel like the price should be a bit lower ;). However, the quality and efficiency of the software are awesome and I would definitely encourage those who’re looking for automation tools to run their money making process with CPA and Instagram and searching for the best MassPlanner alternative can consider GramDominator to BUY and use! The DominatorHouse and its software and services are very reliable and I have confidence that future upgrades to the software will add even more amazing features.
