    Hi all,

    I had a 1 month old account which followed approx. 40 people on instaplus and it got banned straight away. I want to make a natural, white hat growth account now - so I have and will continue to build as well as I can.

    Automation wise - I'd like to make a secondary account linking back to the first one (a @ tag in the bio and pics and potentially a website link)

    My main profile has my web link in it too. If I use this to automate would it likely be linked back to the old account with only the web link and user tags being the common denominators?

    I'd be using massplanner now and would buy an aged account then warm up slowly as you all suggest.

    Would love to hear from anyone with insight or familiar situations?

    Thanks
    M

    I believe you should figure out why your account got banned before you step into anything else.

    Any kind of automation raises your chances of getting banned. I am not that familiar with the concepts of the instaplus, but I have saw Instagram banning accounts like crazy.

    I would also consider testing out Follow Liker or MassPlanner as bots to use for your Instagram journey.

    How could I find out? that's the only abnormal thing I did. I emailed every day for a week and got nothing but template replies
    I also invested in massplanner and used that on another account which was fine. Keen to do it again I'm just not sure if IG detect links between accounts via @xyz in the biography and posts?

    You won't get banned for mentioning another account.

    I'm building instagram automation software. During this process I have found various methods that work when it comes to avoiding bans and or rate limits. The first is to avoid direct App API use the second would be to take into account the time between actions.

    If you are interested in beta testing I need help testing out these features for now.
    • Mass like
    • Mass like posts in search
    • Mass unfollow
    • FollowBack
    • UnFollow those not following you back

    If you are only going to grow like two accounts Instagress is pretty good. You aren't tied down to a monthly subscription you just buy running time which can last as long as you want it to last. You can just run it on slow and you are most likely never going to get banned unless your doing a bunch of other stuff.

    This is correct. Don't bot anything you're not willing to lose.

    If you really don't want to get banned, follow/unfollow manually.

    The BEST way to warmup accounts is by hand on your phone. Then after a few weeks switch to automation. But the biggest and fastest growth tends to be by hand, which is very doable if you only have a few accounts.
