    Some of my accounts are hitting a wall of new followers. Averaging 40-50 new followers per day, down from 80-90 per day. HQ photos on all accounts, running for 14 hours

    It's not the hashtags that I use, as these are in the million of users. Nor is it the likes as the accounts keep liking 1,000-1,200 photos per day. Likes remain the same, with about 10% engagement.
    Follow about 600-700 users a day, as these are 2-3 year old accounts.

    I'm scratching my head as to why this is happening.
    I'm using Follow Liker, safe delays 3-6 min general interval, 60-90 sec delay on likes, 60-120 delay on follow/unfollow. Unfollow every 3-4 days, so as not to be the same every week.

    Any suggestions that you recommend?

    You say, that with 1000-1200 likes per day and 600-700 follows per day, you receive no more than 100 followers ? This is weird as fuck. Sorry if I got you wrong, but I'm using the same settings as yours slightly different:
    800-1000 likes per day
    600-700 follows per day
    Delay 50-70 sec. Automation Interval: 2-4 minutes.
    and I get around 200 new followers each day.
    I unfollow after I reach 7500 following.
    Are you following private users ? Cuz I'm not.
    Are you following users based on hashtags or from other popular IG profiles ? I'm dong the second thing.

    Find relevant tags with under 500,000 posts. Signal to noise ratio is too great in the large tags. Smaller tags are usually used by people who actively take part.

    Find the top users in those tags & scrape their followers.

    Mix it up every day.

    Personally I couldn't say I receive more than 100 follow backs per day either on a new account below 10k follows. Running similar settings. Never understood how people generate more (and drop the unique content, hashtags, etc crap)...
    guess it really depends on the niche. porn, humor and cars prolly work way better.

    Sorry, if you misunderstood. Not that the photos on the accounts get 1,000-1,200 likes per day. The accounts that I handle like others' photos. The accounts like about 1k photos per day, not the other way around.

    I never follow private users. These are following users based on hashtags. It has fallen off, because for the past 6 months, it was stable.

    The accounts that I handle get about a 10% engagement. So, if they have 1k followers they get about 100 likes per photo, if 5k followers about 500 likes per photo and so on.

    I do a mix of million and smaller tags, but mostly larger. I'll use your suggestion to under 500k posts hashtags. Don't know what I hadn't tried that before but it seems like a very good idea. Thanks!

    Yeah, that's similar to my findings. But, weird that I've been using this method for accounts in the last 6 months, and they are all dropping.
    I don't think it's IG, since I'm anal about changing start/end times, leave large delays, and change hashtags weekly. These are real accounts that I handle, so got to be extremely careful.
