Anyone had any luck gaining large number of real Instagram followers? (1000-5000 per day)

    I noticed a couple of people on Instagram gaining 1000-5000 followers per day - even after the new Instagram API restrictions were introduced. What's more, these followers are legit Instagram users who interact, comment and like.

    I know how they do it, but I can't even get close to those numbers. On a good day I manage to get about 250 new followers without mass follow/unfollowing.

    From what I can tell most bots are dead in the water as they rely on the Instagram API in one way or another. If anyone here can replicate the above mentioned results, let me know or chip in here if you like.

    I've had some success. The key is to build a user base you can communicate with. This will help you get more likes and end up on the popular page. From there, you will get a load of followers. Bots are pretty useless now so you actually have to spend a lot of time on it writing individual comments. Not really worth the hassle unless you have a plan down the line to monetize.

    So here's what I do, please someone tell me what I can do to get more followers. I follow people that like a picture on the popular page. I also just follow people and they follow back. I also like popular hashtags. I get a decent amount of likes and am at around 1,200 followers now. I need many more. Can someone tell me what I can do to increase my followers and likes? THANKS. What about this commenting I hear...

    Thanks for tips. I'm not that active on instagram anymore but I'd say don't get carried away with number of followers without keeping an eye on engagement. There are plenty of IG accounts with 100k followers and 20 likes per image. Pointless. Flipside, there are quite a few accounts that make pop page with 20k followers and 1000+ likes.

    Instagram is about quality over quanity, I have 7700+ followers and can average anywhere from 150-800 likes per photo, and right now i am at 150 photos after about 9 months of use so a new photo every few days essentially. If i waste my whole day on IG i can get a solid 3-500 but any higher than that is a blue moon day.

    yea fake followers are easy to tell. no point in getting them unless you mix them exactly 50 50 with real ones.
