    Acquired an account at 35K followers.

    Naturally it was gaining 300-500 new followers a day just from normal posting.

    Once I hit 50K ( and new instagram algorithm kicked in ) my growth as dramatically decreased down to average 30-100 followers per day. Same posting schedule / same content.

    I follow 0 accounts and never used a bot to gain followers. Now that I'm hitting a road block should I bot the account?

    My engagement per photo is about 2000-8000 likes per photo. I have some videos that went viral and have up to 40,000 views on them.

    What would you do?

    Banned accounts could be a factor when losing followers.

    Ugh.. My account is 53k followers also with 6% engagement purely built with hard work without any bots, but I'm not making anything lol. Probably your niche is better than mine, so keep working!

    Should I do follow/unfollow or just likes?

    I'm about the same engagement - have you tried Shoutcart? I have sold a few on there for $15 each and then also a couple other similar accounts DM'ed me for Shout outs and account boosting. Don't give up :)

    Give it a try and do follow/unfollow. If your followers gain increased and you're doing well then keep doing it, if not maybe trying buying a shout-out.

    BTW am not sure but many people say that you should stop botting when your account is big ( >50k).
