    Hello to everyone!!!
    I have decided to grow my account manually.
    I have read that I can follow 700 accounts per day and unfollow another 700accounts.
    I am not sure if the Instagram has different policy for the manual follows than the automaticaly follows with bots. Let me know about this.
    Iam looking to find the best tactic for manually growth. How many follows and unfollows can I do it per hour? Can I follow the same time for example 50 accounts and to stop then for 1 hour? and the next hour another 50 etc.. what do you think?
    I appreciate any help/opinion.
    Thank you

    manually would be safer, absolutely you can follow 50 then rest 1 hour then another 50, but that 50 shouldn't be in row, you have to wait few minutes each 5/10 follows

    Hey do you really think you could do 700 of follow and unfollow? Right now I have a 2 week old acc and I've been following ~150 a day with no problems(all manual no bot). Should I increase how many I follow per day?

    I thought about doing it manually too, but I don't want to follow the same people again and again (my niche is not thaaat big), this causes angry people and blocks, etc :/

    any tip on this btw?

    For 3 months i grow 2 account manually. I'm following about 400-500 per day. Following maximum 49 per hour. For unfollow i use an application (followers asistant). So far i have reached the main account of 12.2 followers and an engagement of 7-9%

    How do you avoid following the same people over and over again? Sorry for asking this twice, seriously considering shutting down bots. Tnx!

    I don't follow private accounts and i unfollow ppl after 2-3 weeks. I'm very careful about who's following me and who does not and i made an excel file where I add all the accounts that I track according to how many likes or comments they giving to my posts. And i use max 2 sources to follow their followers.

    Sorry for my shit english...

    Thank you all for your replies :)
    How is the max number of followers that I can follow per hour without problems? 50 is the maximun?
    How is the maximun number of unfollows that I can make per hour?
    Can I make 50 follows and 50 unfollows the same hour or must be in different hours? or must be in different days? for example one day to make only all the follows and the next day only to unfollow.

    Now I make 400follows and 400 unfollows per day without problems.

    Yes this is a problem but I haven't thought it yet because the account is small at the moment.

    Hello I need a little help from your experience. Do you follow and unfollow the same day and hour? Or some days makes only the follows and other days only the unfollows? Which is the maximun number of the unfollow that you make per hour and which per day? Do you use only the followers assistant ? So you make your unfollows without pauses!!! Correct?

    For now I make first the unfollows ...150unfollows per hour .. total 400-450 per day ( for example in three hours ) and after I start to follow.. and I follow 150 per hour , total 450-500 per day ( in three hours)
    I make between these three hours 1 hour approx. break. ( I make all the follows and unfollows per hour ( the 150) in tha same time for example all them in 15 minutes , so it is not very tired for me . Now that I read that you make only 49 follows I shocked because maybe I will ban my account with this method .. Let me know your opinion..I make this 1.5 month now without problems. )

    I follow 80-90, rest for 1 hour, repeat, and then unfollow 110 the last 5 hours of the day before I go to bed. I have a 13k business account :) I got banned from following once when I tried doing around 140 follows per hour. I do around 600 follows a day with 600 unfollows roughly.

    Do you make the same pauses ( 4-5 minutes ) and when you make the 49 follows?

    When you say per 2 hours do you mean that you make 120 followers without pauses and then you wait 2hours? Or you make 1 follow per minute?
    The next day you stop to make anything and the third day start only to unfollow (200/2h). Correct?

    Do you make these the 80-90 follows per hour perpetually and then rest for 1 hour or you make follows with pauses in this hour?


    Thank you all :)

    No i mean i unfollow 5-10 wait 4-5 minutes and after i unfollow another 5-10. When i hit 49 i stop and next hour i follow 49 ppl. For me working well so far. But u need to interact with your followers to keep your engagement high. If you have many followers and very bad engagement your account will be zero

    I take it instagram doesn't really pull you up on the churning like twitter does?
    Keep thinking that I should get into instagram, seems so popular - for marketers and for the general public.

    Why manually? That's gonna be super time-consuming and pretty boring.

    On my 20k Instagram account i'm following 100-120 people every hour until the max is hit on instagram (7500) and then the next couple days is just mass unfollowing of 200/hr. Have had the account for about a year, no suspensions or bans or anything like that.

    I personally follow between 10-20 per. operation. So follow 10-20 then wait 10 minutes, follow 10-20 then wait 10 minutes, follow 10-20 then wait 10 minutes, etc. I've never had any issues with this.

    For un-following I would only un-follow a maximum of 15 per. operation. Still wait 10 minutes in between.
