    Hello,

    My main account has 7k followers, i am currently doing the follow / unfollow method. The first month i gained 4k followers by doing this method. I am currently following 60 people an hour and only gaining 5 - 10 back. I use to gain 100 - 200 a day. I am now only gaining maybe 50 followers a day.

    My quality of content has not changed and i am still doing the same things i did when i first started. But my follow back ratio has dropped dramatically.

    Is there anyway that i can boost my follow back ratio up?

    Looking forward to hearing suggestions / ideas!

    Try to follow the followers of other accounts in the same niche as you, and maybe you will see some improvements.

    if you follow manually follow people liking or commenting posts of other accounts in the niche.

    I've noticed that this happens on many of the accounts that I handle. It could be many things.
    1. The followings of the accounts your looking at are not as good as they used to be.
    2. Many accounts are now catching up to you just following/unfollowing.
    3. Instagram has marked your account and their algorithm is blocking some accounts from following/seeing you.

    You can try looking at new accounts in your niche and following their followers.
    If it was Instagram's algorithm, stop following/unfollowing for 48-72 hours. It should go back to normal after this.
    Also, if you are unfollowing after 1 or 2 days, try going back to unfollowing after 3-4 days.

    Hope this helps.
