Hey igking!
I got a few questions.

How do a new account grow without hashtags and without follow/unfollow method in the end?
I mean new accounts usually get low engagement so people could hardly find their accounts.

Maybe what I'm doing is wrong since one of my accounts only grow to 12.1k currently in 3 months with following/unfollowing method and with hashtags in my niche :/.

It could be possibly that this account did some small follow/unfollow or used hashtags before it hit 20k followers, but there is yet any evidence for that. I only have data that shows after 20k followers.

But if this Instagram account still received a significant amount of likes and comments (which it did), then it will show up in other people's explore tab. That's how it's been growing.

PM'd you a while ago. Still haven't heard anything. :rolleyes:

He doesn't need to give names, I vouch for his statement.

growing 15-30k a week is more the norm than an exception. No need for follow/unfollow, shoutouts or even hashtags.

But when you use fake likes and comments to garner those followers it's substantially less impressive. Still would like to see one instance of a lower-level account growing at that velocity.

OBviously that account growed using:
1- Payed Engagement groups
2- Bought Powerlikes
3- Bought Shoutouts

Or that user Samir Mezrahi, aka @samir, head of social at The Dodo, maybe he had some other big accounts and use them to help this one get into explore with powerlilkes.

Please don't fool newbies here telling them that following your instructions in first post they will grow like this in 1 month, ITS NOT POSSIBLE.
without using one of the above.

I'm not saying it's not possible, there just isn't any proof of it. Once we have proof we can start analyzing how to replicate it. But saying things like this don't prove anything. If things are obvious, we should be able to see the proof. Right?

One of the biggest cancers on this forum are the people making blanket statements that don't have a legitimate argument to back it up. You can go viral without buying your way to the top. I've done it. It's possible for others to as well. This account is innocent until proven guilty. If you have actual facts, then we'll say this account bought its way to 100k followers in 3 months. Until then, we need to evaluate what it's doing right in order to achieve similar results.

I believe on the Twitter account they simply retweet the originals, and on their Instagram they screenshot the content. But yes, they don't tag the original owner or anything like that on Instagram.

Well, i've seen tons of these and most will stop at a certain at a certain amount of followers then grow slower, it's just a viral effect right now, happened to one of my accounts, grew similar numbers to this account and then it just topped off and now seeing only about 200-500 per day. I've seen my friends go from 3-5k followers/day and it's topped out right now at about ~350k and it's growing about 500/day too now.

How did you get the initial traffic?

It's likely they used a follow/unfollow or hashtags or simply just some type of awareness/shout-out from their parent company.

I feel like this is a case where an account is being spoon fed followers from parent accounts. Just posting good content isn't a way to get featured on accounts with 1m+ followers. Considering this guys background I would bet he has a friend or two running some of these 1m+ accounts and are featuring him to boost him. The support of giant accounts helps in tons of ways, not just exposure through features.

In our telegram groups we have over 100 x 100k PLUS accounts liking your post within 2 minutes of posting.

Ill let that sink in. Over 100 accounts each with a minimum of 100K followers, some have over a million, liking your post within 2 minutes of uploading at ANY given time of the day.

Again, let that fucking sink in. So who do you think will get on the explore page? Your shit post that only your neighbour liked or my post that half of fucking planet Earth liked?

In which way am I promoting my eBook? You're the only one that's mentioned my eBook in here. And by the way, most people seem to like my eBook. :).

Sig flagging ever heard of it? Of course you have, you show up in every IG thread and add nothing, just like this thread and all the others you have opened, and that the n00bs here like you eBook doesn't really carry any weight as most of your "fans" don't even know how to place a link in the bio, and i have read (well skimmed) your eBook, and it is terrible, your unique content preaching and dissing blackhatters (although the irony is that you sell your drivel on a BLACKHAT FORUM) just shows you know jack shit on making money off IG, if you really knew what you were talking about you wouldn't be here all day peddling your shitty eBook.

I am out of this thread before i say something that gets me banned, but it is people like you that have trashed this place from what it was, and that really irritates the shit out of me cus i used to really like BHW... :(

Done!

You really have no fucking clue what you're talking about man.

That's why you are selling ebooks. To entertain the noobs.
