This article will share web services that allow you to send automated direct messages on Instagram to new followers.

It is always a good idea to send a DM every time a new user follows you. Using them to say “Thank you for the follow!” and introducing yourself and your product/services is a good way to build a better connection with the followers.

However, it is a tedious task to send these messages manually.

Therefore, we will be sharing two web services (both having a free trial to test them out) with which you can create welcome messages and send them automatically when anyone follows you on Instagram. We will be doing it with the help of online automation tools for DMs. So let’s have a look at them.

Note: It is not recommended to promote or sell something aggressively using automated D.M. If you do so, most of the users will consider you spam and unfollow you on Instagram right away.

  1. Thanks, Hemant for providing these two automation tools. There is also one another tool which automates all the Instagram’ social activities in the best ways. For more details have a look at the mentioned link.

    • Hi Sam,

      If you are fine with the service name in your automated DM’s then the one’s mentioned are absolutely free. If not then I am afraid you will have to go for the premium version.

  2. Hey Hemant,

    There is another tool called Fan Harvest. It allows you to send auto messages as well as schedule posts and automate a lot of other things about Instagram marketing.
