    I think everybody from BHW would say yes, because that's what I read on almost all the threads..
    I did a test today, a picture uploaded 3 days ago had 25 likes (brand new account), so I liked this picture from another 13 accounts with 8-10k followers each. So almost 90k followers on total.
    Now, after 5 hours, that picture have 40 likes (25 old + 13 from me + 2 new).
    On another picture, I also commented with all 13 accounts...nothing changed: no any new like, comment, follower, nothing.
    Am I doing something wrong? Or it's just bullshit?

    Tried it as well and there was 0 % difference between the normal engagement on the photos and from this experiment... still same likes and number of comments.

    That's interesting.

    I've seen 2-3 BHW journeys where people got xxx to x,xxx followers per day just from "power likes." Though, it seems like they've been paying for likes from accounts in the 1M+ range.

    And what's the difference?
    I got likes from accs which have in total 90k followers. Which it means 10% interraction of what they got...but for me it's 0%

    I don't know. That's just the difference that pops out to me.

    They have 1M+ accounts doing the likes. I don't know if the rules change at that size or if there's another factor that's affecting this.

    There are other factors in this method.

    1. The followers of your other accounts have to be active users of Instagram. Otherwise this method won't work.
    2. The followers of your other accounts have to not be bots/spammers that follow tons of users, so they can actually see their news feed.
    3. The accounts you're doing this with shouldn't be botting at the same time, because the other likes/follows will overwrite those likes and hence the method won't work.
    4. Being in the same niche helps.
    5. Make sure those "90k" followers are unique and not the same followers spread across different accounts.

    And so on. This method could definitely work if done correctly. But I think if you really want to see a huge effect from this, you need a big amount of followers (millions).

    ...who take my advice
    I bought power likes from an account that had 240,000 followers and i was gaining 300 followers a day just from all the extra engagement his power likes were bringing me.
    My account only had 3,000 followers and horrible engagement since i got that 3000 followers from botting.
    I stopped botting when i bought likes from the guy so the 300 followers is all from the power likes.
    Some advice would be that power likes work best on videos. Some of my videos even reached up 360,000 views
    This only costed me $20 a week since thats all he charged.

    OMG spot on ... I totally forgot when I tried this, that I'm botting the accs and they are liking 1000 more photos ... gonna try it sometimes, when the accs are not being botted.

    Also the powerlike should come as soon as you publish the picture, or it won't get on the explore page

    Hey Bigtroll,

    You should run the same experiment but like the image within the first 5 minutes it is posted. From what I've read, it needs to be almost immediately in order for the pic to reach the explore page. Please try this and report back! Very interested to hear how it works for you.

    Really good case, we didn't buy such PowerLikes before ) We will try soon, so will have the feedback


    Also I want to tell that your test is not correctly, when we are speaking about impact from power likes, it means from really power accounts, +200 000 followers
    So your 13 accounts per 8k, are sorry, nothing at all, such accounts are very cheap

    Works for 100%. My pics went from 2xx to 5xxx, up to 20xxx. Every pic I post gets exposed to multiple million people.

    One comment though on JustChilling, number 4. Yes, same niche is correct, but it doesn't hurt to work with other niches as well. When I tried this, it got me an extra bump. Because those peoples followers are fresh!

    And only work with people with manual grown accounts. Botted accounts are worthless. Moreover, botted accounts hit a daily limit in growth (and you will never or barely hit explore), with manual accounts: the sky is the limit.

    Because you'd know what works and what doesn't as you follow the progress of others.

    Namely, that botted accounts actually grow faster than a majority of manual accounts. Yes, there are outliers, but these outliers are called outliers for a reason. And these botted accounts you deem "worthless" are making good money for their owners.

    It's fine if you're uninterested in the journey section. However, don't take your misinformation and spread it as fact.

    this method works, i have done it, but the problem is that it can't be controlled, you just know which picture will hit the explore feed when you LIKE multiple posts...so the post that will appear is random.

    I was actually talking about manual accounts working with powerlikes. Good luck with outgrowing me by botting. I'm in touch with over 200 guys and girls in the game and nobody is ever going back to botting again.

    Why should I work with botted accounts? Those followers are only following that specific account because they got followed.

    I bet you can't give me a non-babes botted account with <100k that grows by x,xxx a day solely by botting.
