Engagement groups won't work if you have too few followers?

    Just read an article comparing bots vs engagement groups for Instagram and it's conclusion was basically that for engagement groups to be effective, your account has to have enough followers to begin with.
    So to kickstart my account should I spend more time manually following/unfollowing rather than on engagement groups?

    The article was about Instagram. But is the same true for Pinterest?

    As far as I know, IG weights likes and comments of your followers heavier than from people who don't follow you. Which makes sense, if you think about it.

    I would recommend you to focus on following/unfollowing highly targeted people till you have around 1000 followers. Beside that you need to use all 30 hashtags that IG allows in one post and research them well.

    Actually its hard to start from zero. I do like buying around 2k followers. With my imacros script i can do foolow, like by hash Tag, and an APK app for quick unfollow. After gaining much followers mass block the 2k followers i bought. Any blocked user will auto unfollow you. Enjoy.

    I wouldn't buy any followers. From my personal experience it doesn't matter to users how many followers you have as long as you have great content and target the users that you follow, well.

    Furthermore fake followers reduce your engagement rate and therefore your organic exposure via hashtags.

    Nah, you got me wrong maybe. I mean breeding account from 0 followers is hard. You cannot follow 700 persons when you have 200 followers. So buy followers and then mass block then in future and they automatically unfollow you. All will look clean as will have no fake followers.

    Pfew.. So a bot is required from the beginning if you don't want to spend 10 hours a day following people, no?
    What bot would you recommend for a newbie?
    I bought PinbotAI but I found the interface complicated

    Engagement groups will work with low followers. It's not about how many followers you have, it's about the amount of followers that the person that liked your picture has.

    Are you going to get massive results with low follower? No. But joining an engagement group + follow/unfollow bot. Will certainly get you to your goals faster. Once you get lets say 10k+ followers. Join a 10k+ followers only engagement group.

    I wouldn't recommend buying followers. It kills your engagement %.

    Starting from zero takes time. I would recommend doing it right from the beginning.

    Remember most engagement group will only accept your joining if you have about 5k followers. I don't think you can join engagement group with 100 or 200 followers. So how do you start with 0 followers without buying followers?

    There are no requirement engagement groups. Are they super effective? No, but will you outperform someone who isnt doing it? Absolutely.
