    Hey Guys! Decided to make an account finally because i am beginning to really bot an instagram account (original professional photos)

    I have a question regarding follower amount over time. I follow, like and comment followers of popular accounts (the basic stuff).

    My question is, How much did you notice your daily followers number increase exponentially over time?

    Like i have around 1.5k followers in just over three weeks, and i have noticed that once i hit 1,000 my botting methods have yield more daily followers.. Was this the case for you guys? How many followers a day did you get once you started growing your original followers base? How long did it take to get around 50k followers using just following, liking and commenting with one account.

    Curious

    Thanks
    Nick

    It's usually based on the bigger your account gets, the higher fb %, meaning you get followers quicker.
    After 1000, should see an increase.
    5000, 10k, etc.

    Some of my bigger accounts are now at about 60-75% fb rate.
    Easily gaining 10-15k+/month on those even with pretty safe settings, can probably go 20k+.

    Roughly should take you 5-6 months or so to grow 50k followers, depending on niche and if you do some manual work.. going solely off using bot, maybe 8-9 months.

    thanks for the reply nub, what do you mean specifically by doing some manual work. i know what manual work is, but what could be different than commenting on other peoples accounts. Do you mean like pin pointing specific accounts that will probably follow back better? I started getting around 40-60 followers a day and i have grown to 80-100 and i think i am going up. i will have to track.

    Thanks
    Nick

    Meaning engage with followers, sfs with other niche related accounts (one of the fastest ways to grow)

    interesting! so at around the 50k mark, once you've integrated your strategies for manual growth (ie. call to actions, posting schedules, joint ventures with other pages) you can ease off the botting completely?

    Or can you suggest easing off of botting even earlier?

    You can ease off around 20-30k if you wanted, but yeah 50k is a good number to stop and start doing it manually, you can gain much more by doing SFS after that.

    question, ive noticed my most recent photos are getting a lot less likes, out of nowhere. all previous photos were averaging 300-400, now im only getting about 80-100 likes in the first hour.... and slowly going up. maybe because of post time..? when do you say the best posting time is for you?

    Well of course, my times wouldn't matter for you.
    Most followers are from USA for me, depending on accounts, i like to post in morning, afternoon or evening (after work time).
    Figure out when you have the best engagement time and test around different times.
    Also it can also be due to your post not showing up in explore tab, hence getting less likes.
