Hello Blackhatters, I wanted to see if anyone has made the same observation as me. As background, I've been in the instagram game for about six months now. I've had accounts in a ton of different niches and am currently running a lot of accounts. However, I am getting NO WHERE NEAR the followers that many of the people in the Instagram and My Journey section claim. I am currently botting all the accounts and am at the max safe follow rate that I've found (800 follows per day). Even some of my larger accounts (20k+) are only growing at 300ish followers a day and they all have high engagement 10%+. I'm seeing all these journeys where people are growing nearly brand new accounts at a rate of 1k+ followers a day. I just can't understand what these accounts must be doing to achieve this growth. If they were using shoutouts, it would cost nearly 1k a week to maintain this kind of growth. Is there some kind of method I am not aware of? If there is, and it enables you to gain 1k followers a day, I would absolutely be willing to pay a large amount to be informed of how to do this. Some examples of this outrageos growth I'm talking about are: 1. Brand new accounts growing at well over 1k daily - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ussions/834875-0-100k-180-days-instagram.html 2. Easily averaging over 1k+ growth per day (even when the accounts were brand new) - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-instagram-journey-1-million-followers-4.html 3. Absolutely mind blowing growth - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-instagram-journey-1-million-followers-9.html What is the trick. At this point, it can't be just picking a good niche or having great photos. I've had both and never on any account reached over 500 followers per day. To consistently gain 1k+ a day on new accounts is absolutely insane.
