    I'm currently using instagress and I'm using the follow/unfollow method plus likes.

    My accounts range from 15% follow back to below 10% after averaging out follow/unfollow days over a period of time. I feel that it may be a bit low, but I wanted to see what everyones followback ratio is, just to give me a better idea. I do understand niche also plays a role.

    I'm currently playing around with filters and follow sources.
    But are there any tips from the veterans to up the ratios?

    Hey

    10-15% if definitely on the lower side, I try to tweak until im around 25-30% or higher!

    I don't think you can do this with Instagress but with lets say FL (followliker) for example you can follow people who liked/commented on a picture. So what I do is get the Photo ID from a pic from an authority account in the same niche as mine then follow those people who liked and commented on their pic. The FB ratio is high because these are actually people who are following + engaging on a photo of one of your competitors, so if you have similar or better content you will definitely get a good FB ratio (never had anything less than 20%) and you will get nice engagement on your photos also.

    Hope this helps

    I did have a hunch (plus from lurking the forum lately) I was on the lower end haha

    That's a very good point! I really like your strategy of targeting those people that are engaging on competitors photos. Thank you!

    There are a few minor tweaks with Instagress, I'll play around with those in the meantime until I graduate to FL.
