    Hey there, I'm having a terrible headache… I'm growing 2 instagram accounts manually, niches are cats and dogs each … what's wrong is: I follow about 2000+ people a day on each account, I follow those people who Liked the recent posts of other accounts in same niche … I post a high quality good looking picture with good caption daily , have a cute profile picture but WHAT is the reason for this terrible follow back patio? I'm in Instagram for about a month, please can anyone help? How much follow backs should I get for 2000 follows? I get about 40-50 follow backs only, I work hard off my ass following people but no good results? Why? Experts please help me …

    40-50 follows backs for 2000 follows is way too low in my book. You should considering maybe changing your source where you scrape users, the competitors might be using some fake accounts to boos their engagement.

    Hmm that's really low... I'm getting at least 30% in this niche.
    Maybe not just follow them but also like their latest picture

    Why you dont buy software for 10 dollars that would save you all day headache? And about follow back,do you have interesting content? I think I was getting like 15-20% follow back so like 2k followers 7k following.

    I got a 10-15% just with my test account, following random users with no niche targeting and without related content posted

    I wonder why my follow back is too low … can you please help me how much do you follow each day, which users do you follow and from what type of accounts are you following people? Big accounts or smaller ones?

    I follow the followers of big accounts and I even get a followback ratio of 25-30%.
    So there must be something wrong with the list of users you are scraping.
    Do a research again to find better big accounts with more engagement and more comments/likes at their posts.
    Post some quality content 1-3 times per day to give it a kick and unfollow people after 2-3 days since you followed them.

    4 posts in a row. First step: learn how to multi-quote, dude.

    2nd step: Try some free tools.

    Dont follow private accounts. People who have their account private problably are not interested in following random niche accounts.
    Also try not to follow people without profile pictures.Those people are probably inactive or bots.You dont want them.
    There are some bots in BHW tottaly free that can help you.You can even tweak it more and filter the people you follow more strictly.
    For example people who posted in the last 10 days.With that method you will follow less people per day (500-900) but you will get a higher followback ratio as we are talking for REALLY active users.

    First I'd say use a free bot. there is GMT2 which is working absolutely good for me.
    Second, I'd suggest scraping accounts that liked a user's photo that also does follow\unfollow. (you can easily see this by his followers-following ratio..) that way you have a better chance because the users who liked probably followed him back and are active.
