Service Specific Questions

 
 

DOES CAMPGROUND BUY 'FOLLOWERS'?

No way.  Not happening.  Our growth process interacts with real people who have been identified by Campground Social as real potential followers and customers.  You've probably run into some of the more dubious marketplaces online that offer paid followers.  We warn against taking shortcuts like this as it just damages your feed's reputation. 

WHY DOES CAMPGROUND SOCIAL NEED MY INSTAGRAM LOGIN INFO?

Your login credentials (username and password) are required to establish a connection to Instagram.  We will never login to your account via the Instagram App.

How does campground work?

It's pretty simple, actually. Once you sign up, our software plugs into to your account and performs actions that a personal social media team would take to build the account.  The only difference is that these actions (like, follow, unfollow) are done with the insight of our growth system and are taken throughout the day.

WILL MY PASSWORD BE SAFE?

We'll watch over it like our first born.  As an additional layer of security, since your Instagram account is connected to YOUR email and phone number, it can never be 'hacked' or hijacked without you being alerted first.

WHAT IS CAMPGROUND SOCIAL'S CANCELLATION PROCESS? 

Anytime and no questions asked.  Not a fan?  We get it.  Budget stretched too thin?  We get it.  Just log in to your account and select the cancel button! During your first 30 days on campground, your entire month's fees will be refunded to your card if you've completed your onboarding call.  After 30 days, we will prorate and refund the time you have yet to use.  

DOES CAMPGROUND SOCIAL POST CONTENT ON MY ACCOUNT?

Our monthly growth services require you to post your own content.

The best part of your Instagram feed is that it's YOURS!  We'll be here to provide you with some tools and best practices that work alongside our behind the scenes growth efforts.  Successful accounts are the ones that post often and post content that is as unique and inspiring as your personal brand.

If you are interested in having a full-time team of Instagram experts posting on your behalf, check out our fully managed service.  

 

CAN I USE OTHER INSTAGRAM GROWTH SERVICES WHILE CAMPGROUND IS RUNNING?

We suggest you don't.  The Campground growth process takes into account dozens of variables and factors.  The moment those are thrown off by another growth service, we really can't guarantee you the growth that we promise and are known for.  Additionally, utlizing multiple growth-type services tends to raise red flags with Instagram.

Is my 30-day guarantee unconditional?

Yes!  It really is. We want to de-risk the entire signup process and feel that offering a money-back guarantee is the right way to do it. 

We do have one request: in order to receive our guarantee you need to do an onboarding phone call with us.  

Your complimentary onboarding call is a great way for us to get to know you and vice versa.  We'll discuss your goals and give you tips on posting strategy.  Statistically, clients who jump on this call have a 98% satisfaction rate.  We've noticed the inverse with clients who do not wish to have a call with us.    

If you've read this far, please use code CREDO at checkout for 20% off of your first month!

HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS? 

There are a plethora of factors involved in getting to growth.  The most important of them is where you are starting off from.  If you have an account with at least 1k followers and post regularly (at least 10x a month) you'll begin to see results in a matter of days.  If you're a smaller account, it may take up to 2 weeks to start getting traction.  Always remember: KEEP POSTING CONTENT!!!

WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH SPAM AND FAKE BOTS ON INSTAGRAM?

Bleh!  As the Instagram platform becomes more popular, it also becomes a target for spammers and bots.  As your account gains more exposure, you may attract a few spam accounts here and there (our metrics show less than 5%).  They can be annoying so we recommend just blocking them (our growth system will automatically ignore them and similar users from that point onwards).  Additionally, if there are any keywords you notice that keep bothering you, please let your account manager know immediately so we can modify your growth settings.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN THE NEXT 30/60/90 DAYS?

This is a general rule of thumb for an account that posts regularly, has a complete bio and profile:

30 Days- Demographic profile complete. You'll notice more engagement on your new content and even older posts.
60 Days- You're getting noticed by a lot more people.  Your new content is bringing in likers who are converting into followers.
90 Days- We're in full stride! You will see a very consistent stream of new followers and engagement on your posts.
 

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO POST?

POSTING great content is the #1 thing you can do to help us help you.  We recommend posting at least every other day, in the absence of that we recommend to at least have 10 new posts per month.  Ask yourself: would you follow an Instagram account with stale content?  Need help getting started?  Check out our guides.

 

Instagram Related Questions & Best Practices

 
 

How often should I post?

As often as you like!  Instagramming should come to you as a natural reaction to share the world around you.  If you feel the need to have a hard and fast rule to the # of posts you should be doing, we recommend at least once every other day or two (10 to 15 times a month).  If you can post more than that, then more power to you!   

What kind of content should i be posting?

Fun content.  Good content.  Any content. 

Here's a challenge: view your content through the eyes of your followers and fans.  What does this content tell about you, the originator of it?  

Post scenes from life and the daily grind.  Let your followers know you are an EXPERT in your local area and that expertise will translate into a smoother and better real estate transaction.

how do i use hashtags?

That is a #great question!  Hashtags are text markers that 'tag' visual content so that you can use text to find it.  We recommend using 3-7 visually applicable tags per post.

what information can I give campground to help me succeed?

A core aspect of our demographic targeting system is reverse-engineering who your ideal followers are.  You, obviously, will know more about who your ideal fans are than us!

Demographic tidbits such as which local cafes and gyms your followers visit really help our growth and targeting team create composite of who to interact with on Instagram.

what is engagement and how can i increase it? 

Without going into a full-blown article mode, your engagement is a function of how many likes, comments and profile visits you get in relation to the number of followers you have.  The higher this ration, the better your engagement.

 

Can i like and comment on photos as well?

Yes! In fact, we encourage you to comment and like at least 25 pieces of content a day.  You'd be amazed at the connection you'll build when you start conversations with folks!  

how do i convince the followers that matter that i am their 'go to' person for real esatate? 

Show them you are a real person with a personality (duh!) and that YOU are the expert in local area.  Be a human and use Instagram to be social.  

One thing you should NOT do: sell.  Nobody wants to be sold to on social.  Leave that for the annoying ads.

can campground create, curate and post content for me?

Yes we can.  Check out our fully managed plan for more information on how you can get the power of a full social media team for a lot less than you think!

What are Instagram Stories and how can/should I use them?

Instagram Stories is a feature that lets users post photos and videos that vanish after 24 hours.

The best way to leverage them is to just start using them.  Don't pay attention to the quality of what you put out - JUST PUT SOMETHING OUT.

Instagram Stories are a great way to show the world who you are and what you're about.
