    I have just over 12k followers and get on average 1000-1500 likes per post. I also get between 40-80 comments per page. My page is photograpthy based and I create all of my own content.

    I am lucky to get 4-8 followers a day without bots or any special tactics unfollow/follow etc...

    I setup followliker 3 days ago and have not seen any growth out of the usual. I set it up to like people's pics. I have read here people have reached 38k followers with follow/unfollowing, I would be interested your feedback. I tried to follow/unfollow with followliker and it did not seem to work.

    Thanks in advance

    Try following then. If it didn't work earlier your targeting or settings were most likely bad. Try it again with different formula.

    Yes, play with the settings. A lot of people follow/unfollow a lot of users everyday. For me, the follow/unfollow method definitely brings me more followers than just liking people's posts.

    I have a test account in this niche so I can help a bit.

    First, you need better targeting. You need to F/ UF those in your specific "photography sub niche" - travel, portraits, personal etc.
    Also target pages that are smaller than you. While the general advice is to load up a couple 100k accs from your niche, I've found more success targeting a shit-ton of small accs.
    E.g > Using your 12k acc, I would rather use like x10, 10k accounts than x1, 100K account. The theory is that someone who is engaging with this small page should be (more than) willing to engage with your slightly bigger page as well, granted your content is good.

    Then, a perk with your niche, is there being a lot of big photo accs that will actually post your content for free and tag you, once your content is relevant to their page, basically giving you a free shoutout.
    You just have to some looking and a lot of DMing. Expect maybe a 30% reply back and 10% of that, actually posting your images.
    Or you can just pay.

    I have tried a few settings in Follower liker and not had any luck. Can you suggest settings?

    Thanks for the reply, very interesting! How is your photography page going? Have you used followliker? You are right in getting shout-out in the form of features, in saying that there is a lot of politics involved In getting those features. I get featured by smaller pages pretty regularly

    Page grows steadily at about 120/day. I focus more so on hitting the explore than F/UF now but I don't use hashtags (I should be).
    I used a private bot.
    Yeah those shoutouts work well. Many of the bigger pages actually only do these feature type posts, so it's just a matter of them seeing your DM.

    Follow people that interact with bigger accounts in your niche and that have less than 500 followers (the less the better), that have a higher following than followers, unfollowing wait 3-5 days, f/uf up to 600 a day (you want to warm up the account if you haven't and you might be able to do even more)

    In regards to follow/unfollow is there a limit on how many people you can follow? What happens when you are following 5k odd people? Who is going to want to follow someone with 5k followers? What's the long term strategy for this method?
