    I am having some really decent success in building some IG accounts with MB Ingram Advanced Edition. Using the Auto Succession mode I've (slowly) started building 3 accounts.

    I am working 3 accounts from one CPU with no proxies using Auto Succession mode running in the background non stop for three days. The only thing i do is change accounts at random intervals. In 4 dayss two niche accounts are at 6k followers and 1k followers and then 1.6k on my personal account (that I plan to monetize after I make everything more cohesive).

    I was randomly playing with making the profiles private and not private to see if it made a difference in building an account faster one way or the other. Unfortunately I didn't record my data and didn't structure my testing well enough to quantify.

    What have you guys found regarding private vs non private accounts?


    ALSO I'd like to get two of my accounts on a shoutout group as long as they are targeted. If anyone has a group I can join in men's fashion or beards, or travel/swimwear/resorts I'd love to build with you. Thank you for your time.

    Normally, you would want it public. More chance of them clicking on the follow button. I have set mine to private a few days ago to see which is better.

    Remember, every niche is different. For me, setting the post up correctly (sfs) gains me 500-600 per shout. ( im in the 300k range )

    I've had mixed results with this. So I just normally set it to public on all my accounts now.

    I'v made a test with 2 accounts, same niche, fresh, 1 public/1 private, after a week using FL I got more followers with the private one, but more engagement with the public, the private's engagement went up after I set it public, reaching the other account, but since its a pair of fresh accounts, doesnt have any high number to be so relevant. just my 2 cents.
