This Instagram automation extracts all the Instagram followers of any profile. The followers export is delivered as a .CSV spreadsheet that you can use with Excel, Numbers, or Google Sheet. You can also use that list as a starting point for further automations: Auto-liking these people’s posts, follow them back, auto-commenting on their posts, and more.

Export Instagram Followers to grow your audience

Extract Instagram followers is useful to marketers and savvy influencers for multiple purposes:

  • Study your followers. Extracting your followers to a spreadsheet makes them much easier to study. By having every information regarding each follower (bio, posts count, follower count, etc.), you’re able to see patterns in your audience Favorite topics, sizes, engagement. Eventually, this allows you down the line to make your content more relevant to them. Or to draw a clearer picture of your persona.
  • Study your competitors’ followers. Instagram Followers Extractor lets you export the followers of any public IG profile. Learning from your competitors is equally important as studying your own following!
  • Use this list for other automation. Filter your competitors’ list to keep only their best followers, and start reaching out, either manually, or automatically.

These are just the basic use-cases, but once you have your or someone else’s Instagram accounts’ followers list, what you do with it is only limited by your creativity.

Lastly, if you’re interested in exporting the following (the people that an account follows), do it with the Instagram Following Extractor!
