    I have instagress running 24/7 and I upload 3-5 pics a day is there anything else I can to help grow my account? I know your not suppose to run bots and use your account at the same time cause ti could get flagged but is there any thing I can be doing to help my account grow. It feels like I'm wasting time just letting the bot do all the work?

    You shoud be researching your niche
    Learning how your going to monetize this onece the bot has done its job.

    Many people build huge accounts only to find out , they are ueless for making money

    Hashtag research, optimize instagram bio and experiment with different profile pics to see if followback ratio increases :)

    I'm not familiar with the bot you're using, but you can always try to mix in additional human like behavior that's not the typical following/unfollowing. I'm not sure if it's worth it though.

    Stop using the bot and learn how to grow organically, you're fucked when you get to 50,000+ by only doing follow/unfollow.

    Totally agree, anyway the user says that he just upload photo, so he's working fine.

    Anyway in my opinion you could grab some emails from users from your niche and send them an email promoting your account, I want to test it out but I need to setup all the things before start.

    Spot on. I stopped follow/unfollow once I got a handful of users, because they tend to not be very engaged and/or they unfollow once you unfollow them, only having followed you because you followed them in the first place. A few of my accts have like 10k followers but less than 100 likes and comments. Complete shit.

    My suggestion is to find GOOD videos within your niche on IG, and repost them (with credit, of course). Good videos can make your page hit the explore tab far quicker and bring in decent organic growth.

    I had an 8k page get 300-500 organic followers a day from getting on explore. Those numbers are shit for 50k+ pages but for a small page it's hitting the jackpot.

    Exactly. I just created a brand new page that went from 0-600 followers in the first day just by getting a viral video post.

    I use gramblr to upload my images and cant get the videos to upload using that. Any suggestions on how to upload videos other that from my phone directly to IG?

    What happens at 50k followers that doesnt allow you to use bots any more?

    You have to mark the video, drag your mouse over the video to crop it. It'll work then! IF you dont get it to work, let me know and i'll link you a video that shows you.
