Export Instagram Followers with BirdSong Analytics.

Instagram provides a number of key fields for every public account. These include:
How to export Instagram Followers:
With BirdSong, you can export the Instagram followers and following for ANY account. Simply follow our easy step-by-step instructions:
ii. Search for your Instagram account.
iii. Check and confirm your Instagram account. Buy the report and wait for an email.
iv. Your report email will include a download link to the follower and following exports.
For every report we will show you an estimate of how long the report will take to deliver. The larger the follower base, the longer it will take to run.
There may be numerous key reasons to why you would want to export an account’s followers or following. Based on conversations with our global customers, here are some of the most popular reasons for wishing to export Instagram followers:
i. Backup Instagram Followers
Instagram can provide an impressive archive of imagery, but it CANNOT provide you with an archive of your followers. Exporting your followers can provide you with a follower backup, providing their profiles for offline storage and use at a later date.
Exporting Instagram followers from your own accounts on different dates (e.g. 6 months apart) could give you a benchmark of ‘before and after’ with the additional follower profiles. This can be helpful for pre and post campaign analysis (NB we don’t provide follower tracking), or for measuring change.
Another way to benchmark is to export followers of two, or multiple Instagram accounts for offline analysis. Most follower comparison tools like FollowerWonk can’t handle large accounts.
With an export or two, and some clever excel magic, you could be generating insights like follower overlap profiles and more. This is a smart way to stay on top of your followers!
iii. Moving or Merging Accounts
Unfortunately, unlike Facebook, there is no way to merge two accounts. If you are moving accounts you will need to grab a copy of the ‘old’ account’s followers which you can then use to create a new strategy.
As the exports will contain data including the most recent posts and follower/following count, you can then follow back the most relevant accounts.
iv. Optimise your Instagram account
Several social media tools can give you fake follower counts, based on a sample data. With our full exports, you obtain all the rich data so you control the definition of value, recency and credibility. You can make strategic decisions about unfollowing accounts or follower value and much, much more.
v. Data Analysis and Augmentation
An Instagram username can tell you a lot about the person. By downloading Instagram followers to .csv, the dataset can to be integrated into other tools you may have, or we can help expand the profiles to find connected social accounts.
Depending on your sophistication, this may also be cross referenced with your existing database of email subscribers and any Instagram profiles you have already collected.
vi. Competitor Insights
There is nothing to stop you exporting the followers of your competitors. Do it, be nosey. Do some social forensics, investigate them and our BirdSong tools can provide some excellent insights. This could become extremely advantageous when trying to get an edge over potential business rivals or to try to discover why a brand is performing the way it is.
vii. Lead Generation
Every Instagram profile can include a URL. This URL could link to a variety of wonderful websites, an up and coming blog and the possibilities here really are endless! With the full URL available (not the t.co URL) on every export, you can gain a large database of potential websites to review.
Using your own tools these URLs could prove valuable for sourcing new leads and generating new business.
vii. Instagram Competitions
Many people use our Instagram exports before and after a promotion/competition to identify the new followers or change in follower accounts.
Export Instagram Followers for any account is available as part of our Instagram Analytics reports.
Unlike Twitter, the information provided from Instagram is very slim.
For each user you can get the following information:
Is there a limit to the number of followers I can export?
With BirdSong, there is no limit to the size of followers. Larger exports simply cost more and take longer. BirdSong has been designed to analyse major accounts without the need for you to have account access. This is one of our many USP’s.
Yes! Yes, you can. We can help you associate Instagram accounts with other social networks as part of our bespoke projects.
We are working to increase the follower insights with greater location accuracy, income and age details. To achieve these, we need to include further datasets that need to meet our strict requirements on scale and validity of data.
BirdSong will take the data and magnificently convert it into .csv which is easily downloadable. A standard .csv can only handle 65,000 rows (newer versions can handle millions but we need to work for everyone.) Depending on the size of the audience, we will provide multiple CSV’s, available in a zip folder.
At present, we provide a .csv download for each account. You can save this directly to your desktop, or connect with Dropbox and save all exports in your own account. The .csv can be opened in Excel or uploaded to Google Docs. At present, we don’t provide a connection to Google Docs but we’re working on it!
In theory, yes. Our exports are .csv which is globally compatible for importing the data into other applications. This means you can produce large spreadsheets to house all the Instagram data and organise it into a way that best suits you.
Facebook fans are private unless they interact with the page and exporting Twitter followers in effortless. LinkedIn has some data you can export but they are progressively locking down their API.
You can begin straight away by clicking here to start searching. Swiftly search for the account, run the analysis and export. You’ll also receive an email confirmation when it is complete with a link to the download.
