    If you are implementing F/U method only you will see 50- 100 new followers per day if you have your targeting down proper. The better the follow back rate the better off you will be. You should implement as many tactics as possible if your looking to grow fast.

    Hi Scrox, thanks for your insight.

    I got a couple questions for you though- once you target cheaper countries will this continue to attract the same type of people as followers?
    I ask because I tested an ad for luxury products (art) , which is unlikely to be afforded or of interest in these countries. The majority of ppl following came from India, but I'm not sure if these are even real accounts, let alone those I should be targeting.

    Obviously, Art is a difficult item to sell, do you think it is possible with targeting the right countries? Havn't had much luck so far!

    Yes and No. There are qualifying factors which strongly impacts the outcome of social engagement. 1) Is your product/service applicable to those in that target country? 2) How interested are they in your product/service/post? 3) Are your ads engaging enough to capture their attention time and time again? ... Right now, I have a campaign targeting English speaking Asian countries (i.e. Philippines). The service I'm providing is highly popular over there, so my engagement right now is just as good as it would be if I were to target a US audience. Once you've complied your list of "cheaper rate countries," then filter out those areas which will show little or no interest in your offering. Run some cheap A/B tests if needed.

    You must cater to your demographic. Look at it this way, Lamborghini is currently breaking sales records with their Lamborghini Huracan model. How many Lamborghini dealerships do you see in poverty stricken areas? How come Lamborghini tend to advertise their brand on TV networks that cater to finance, and in high-luxury magazines? Everything sells, if presented to the right demographic. You must first do some research analysis to identify your market. Shit, I just read that Monet's 'Haystacks' painting sold for $110.7 million the other day.

    I typically target cheaper ad rate countries for engagement, not necessarily conversions. When I start a new site, I like to kick it off with a blast of social activity. People love to contribute their info, input, and money to active pages and sites (ala BHW). Once I get a few thousand followers from these countries, I start to tip the scales of my budget to more conversion based countries (i.e. US, UK, etc).

    A perfect example, I once had an eCommerce website selling popular athletic sneaker (Nike Air Jordans, Adidas Yeezy sneakers,etc). I kicked off my social campaign by targeting cheap countries in Asia (sneakers are HUGE over there). Not a single conversion came from those countries (I figured that as my avg. product price was $200/pair) ; however, I was able to acquire over 10,000 highly active followers for pennies! They did exactly what I needed. My followers were liking posts, asking questions about release dates, pricing, colorways, size detail etc. From there, I created another campaign targeting my main demographic in the US. Due to the high social activity of my Asia based followers, I quickly established a presence of credibility and authority; which converted into sales.

    Hope I was able to answer your question. I've always been the, "I can show you, better than I can tell you" type of guy.

    for me, it took about 4 months
    I did the follow/unfollow method for 6 hours/day and max 650 people every day.
    Yes, I was extra careful since the algorithm changes so often.

    Couple of hours to days to weeks to months to years. it is simple method. The more your instagram profile goes viral, you will get followers very soon.

    So if you become overnight celebrity, you will get in matter of hours. If you are promoting instagram profile else where, you can get followers based on your actions.

    So why exactly people need to follow you, should be your target goal.

    I seen pages grow 10k in less than an hour -- others never.
    There is no general time frame. 3 years ago it took me months, 2 years ago it took me 30 days -- last year it took me 3 days. That's only because my private network grew too. Don't worry about others -- do the best you can.

    grow your own little network for ER/growth helping. Don't expect results in a few weeks months. It is a long range mission.

    That was amazing insight, thank you! Wish I could ask more, but don't want to hijack this thread. Perhaps one day you'd be up for making your own thread? best :)

    To make it simple: Many small accounts related to the main and who promote the main account. That way the main account is safe by operating no others actions than posting.

    According to the niche and content, I will do only plain posting and I can also tryout child accounts but not f/uf .
    So I started out and My account got shadowbanned on the second day and I don't know the reason, maybe because I was posting through Pc
