I have 3 serrate accounts, all with around 5000 followers.

I used instagress first before moving to followliker to ramp up the speed and volume.

I have played around with a bunch of different setting, all similar or the same as recommendations from other users on this site and others and the most new followers in one day has been around 40. i read of people getting between 100-500 a day. I'll post my settings below and I'm hoping people can help me figure out why this service isn't working for me at all. I should also mention that I've been using it for about 3 months now.

Scrape user:40
Scrape photo: 40

I mainly scrape followings of other accounts similar to mine. Photos i scape hashtags that a related to the content on my accounts.

Daily follow 400 - 600
Delay: 20 - 25

Unfollow after: 2 days
Delay unfollow: 500 -700
Delay: 12-22

Daily Like limit: 1000 - 1500
Delay: 10 - 14

Daily Comments: 200 - 400
Delay comment: 25 - 35
comment on user photo once

I run followliker most of the day so these settings average:
450 follows, 450 unfollows, 1100 likes and 250 comments

Why the hell am I only getting between 15-30 new followers a day? Without using followliker at all I get around 10 probably naturally.

Any help would be much appreciated. One account is personal(i don't do following on that one). One is based around gadgets and technology @givemethefuture and the other is about striking aesthetics, mainly nature, architecture and cars @visualexcellence. Both accounts have great content, high quality photos, not the same ones you see everywhere. I could definitely post more often but apart form that, i expect a lot more new followers from using followliker

First advice: remove your IG username, don't make it public on this forum.

set your scrape users/photo to 20 if your general automation interval is low, also you may want to double check your source of users to follow, maybe is not that good ( fake / ghost followers) I just started 30+ accounts across different niches and they are growing just fine (100 fb average on brand new accounts, less than 1k followers), some of then faster than the rest due to niche & source of users, so, target your actions carefully.

Thanks. I will try lowering the scrape count.

How do I edit my first post to remove the account names?

Why do people keep thinking that the bot will guarantee your XXX amount of followers? For f's sake, the bot is meant to automate your works, not an insurance that guarantee you will get XXX amount of followers.

If you can't get the desired amount, something is wrong with your contents, hashtag and/or niche. Not necessary the bot problem. Maybe something wrong with your setting on FL too.

Just because someone else got 1k-2k followers using FL, doesnt mean you will get the same result.

It could be about your ratio, for instance if you have an account that has 5k following and like 500 followers do you really expect people to follow you back? Same principle applies with large accounts. So if you have an account that got 30k and only following 100 people and your doing follow/unfollow tactics most people won't fall for it. Some will but it won't be as effect as having ratio of around 4:1.

Also, you could be targeting wrong hashtag, for instance most people will target popular hashtags but that's a mistake. Do you know how many bots are in there? How fast that post gets updated? You want hashtag that doesn't contain many post but is very relevant to what your niche has to offer. Pick something that is relevant and has a reasonable amount.

Third, your probably using the bot wrong. Most people probably follow people from a certain hashtag. What I like to do is go to a popular page that's in my niche and add people who liked/commented their last picture. These are people are less than likely to be bots, already interested to your niche and are already engaging. That's what you want. You want people to engage on your page.

Kik me on haji1122 if you want additional help.

Uhmn.. so you follow 400-600 a day? And eventually only received 20-30 followers back right?

Then why the hell it is FL fault? The bot guarantee it will follow user, comment and like. But it never guaranteed that the people you are following will follow you back.

I'm in the same niche & I'm getting 200+ followers a day with FL.

I have about 2000 fewer followers than you at the moment, but I noticed that I'm getting double the likes & comments that you are.

Your photos look okay to me.

A few suggestions...

Don't unfollow right away. Turn that off. Just go ahead & follow then unfollow later.

Engage your audience. Just a quick glance, I don't see you replying to any comments. Why? Build a community of loyal followers.

Check the users you're scraping as well as the tags. Frankly, I've found the most success from scraping my own followers. Users with 5000 - 10K followers themselves. They already like your photos, their followers probably will too. I think it's too easy to go on a wild goose chase trying to find people to scrape. Focus like a laser. Same thing for tags. How big are the tags you're scraping? Anything over 500K, I think you're wasting your time.

Scrape only the top results. That improved my follow back ratio & quality by a ton.

Think the biggest problem is that you're only getting back as much as you're putting in.

To scrape your own followers with FL, you can do it either with the "Scrape Users" task or "retrieve existing followers and followings".
