    I was reading the settings thread and I was seeing someone mention they're getting 500 followers a day. Does it take a while to get to that point? Yesterday I got about 150 followers, and it does seem to be slowly improving. Does it take time for the people that don't check their account to start following, and then all the follows start to overlap? My content is pretty solid I think, new followers like a bunch of posts right away usually. Thanks for the help.

    Well.. that depends on how much people you're following. If you have a very big account you can probably even go up to 2K+ followers per day and be alright. And if only 25% of those follow back, you have 500. Plus, if you're a very big account you're also factoring in organic growth. So an extra 100-500 followers per day if you've got a page in the high 5 figure follower range, low 6 figures. If you have under 10,000 followers, I would not advise following more than 1K per day. Usually it's normal to get 20-30% of the people to follow you back. Try to follow those with profile pics, as most without are just fakes or inactives. If you wish to, you may follow/like/comment for people to get slightly higher rates. Maybe 30-40%. 50% is very rare.

    Try putting your account on private, i have many clients getting 200+ followers a day from putting their account on private.

    i don't have a big account, but i have an old one. it's my 'real' account that i use for my music. i'm following about 1000-1200 a day, with 1000 likes. i haven't had any issues with temporary bans, but now i'm following way more people than are following me. i was going to wait a couple days before unfollowing. i see i did not have "ignore users with no profile photo" which i thought i did, so maybe that will help.

    1000-1200 follows per day, currently only 1100 followers and now i have over 3000 i'm following. planning on unfollowing soon.
