    Hi guys!
    Here's the deal.
    I'm using FollowLiker for my account.
    Recently I started using DM feature to send offers to people about promoting their works for $.
    I used it 4 days straight and on fifth day I got ban.
    I'm not sure if it's temporary or permanent ban.
    I get no notification. When I send DM, it just vanishes.
    People get notifications on their phones, but when they want to open it, they cannot, because it's not among DMs.
    The settings weren't too high: 300-450 DMs per day with 40-60 secs delay and 30-50 DMs per cycle (the last was the problem, I guess).

    Today is 3rd day since it stopped working. How long would it be so?
    This thing boosted selling really good and I cannot wait to start using it again if I ever can of course.
    And is there such thing as permanent DM ban?

    By the way, apart from DMs everything works.

    Is this a new account? If so you might be DM to many people and got reported. Also running you DM 4 days straight is hardcore but that's just my opinion.

    Those numbers sound very aggressive. What does your message say in summary (not exactly)? Is it very salesy? A lot of people don't like being approached too aggressively on IG. You may want to tone it down a bit with your numbers and maybe your message..

    Also if your account is new, I would recommend not DM people until its seasoned a bit. Hey Surfer I am having issues with my settings I am not getting any actions on my FL can you help me maybe skype?

    It’s one year old already.
    It’s popular tattoo page, and lots of people reacted positively.

    The message says it as is. If you want to promote, then here’s my email and that’s the price + special pricing if you buy more than one post. Plus «Hi there» and «Kind regards». :)
    So it actually looks like real person wrote it.

    Yeah, got it with numbers. Sure will do.

    I have been experiencing this exact issue recently since i started using followliker. I've had fresh accounts banned after 4 hours of DMs at 60 an hour. The first time they were only banned for 24 hours, then it was 3 days the second time. the third time I waited oround a week to be able to send another DM.

    Are you taking advantage of the spintax feature? also are you using dedicated proxies?

    Hey! No, I'm not using that feature. What's that? And what's it for?
    At least I hope it's not permanent ban. :(
