    I started account on July 1, was using follow/like method, I have a good profile picture and bio, my engagement is 10%, I only upload high quality pictures, but I wonder, why I got so low followers in 1 month? My niche is pets. If there is any experienced person who would like to review and maybe can give me suggestion, I would very thankful.
    PS: I use FollowLiker.

    the beginning it the hardest ..... i am not in this niche but maybe you scrape the wrong audience to follow and unfollow.

    once you get past the first 2k-3k you'll start gaining faster, plus now you can raise your daily limits a bit

    You are right, I was following about 300-400 at the start, now average of 500. Soon I will change to normal settings with 600-700 follow and 1000 likes a day. But is this normal that on my first month I got 1.2k followers?

    I don't think so. I found some big pages in my niche and I follow their last followers. Maybe there is some problems with it, but i don't really know.

    I don't think its normal, Its easy to achieve 4k-5k followers with that setting even if your account is new.
    If you look at my journey which you already did, you will find that I am running 2 pets account one of which is a month old and is close to hit the 7k followers.
    There is something wrong with your account or target audience.

    Pets is an easy account for likes and followers, harder to make money with. But a pets/animals account should be on the higher side of followers per week. I have accounts which are not about pets, but when I do post a pic related to cats or something, it gets huge numbers..lol. So yeah, it's super easy to get followers in pets. Also, HQ pics doesn't matter.

    Don't always go for the easy niches, there isn't much money left in those. This is true in all of IM.

    Might be scraping bad, animals niche should be fairly easy to grow. I grow atleast 3-4k / month on new animal niche accounts.

    I figured it out,this month I only followed 3.6k, so folloeback ratio is 35%,which is pretty good for first month. From now I will follow 550-650 a day and I hope there will be no problems with that..
