    Hey guys- I bought FL a couple months ago & had a rough start getting it up & running. I think I'm now averaging 40-100 follows a day using it. When I go manual I can get around 300- 500 follows a day. My question is how can I build to 30k fast? My ultimate goal is going over 100k but I'm trying to get to 30k in a couple months. Is that possible?

    Also, anyone know of $5-10 s/o sources for fitness or quote niche- everything I'm seeing is minimum $50 & one was $800

    Shoutouts are often very expensive (too expensive) so usually you dont have a choice and you have to buy it anyways if not you just grow by yourself. Manually is faster but time consuming and with a bot you may get less followers but at least you have time to do others things concerning your business. You can do s4s its also effective.

    Op, how are you able to get 300-500 followers/day manually? I can only get like 100 per day max (working hard).

    As far as your 30k goal it depends on your niche... If it something already on instagram then its going to be a grinding experience. My advice would be create two more accounts since you already got your feet wet and keep at it. Try to find a niche that is already saturated, start slow and expand further.

    As far as shoutouts goes anything under $25 isn't going to do much for you anyways so either save up or put that money towards more accounts and proxies

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to get 30k in a short amount of time, unless you spend a lot of money. At the beginning, your account will grow very slowly and as you grow bigger and bigger you'll start getting more and more organic fans. However, it still doesn't make it fast, because what I'm talking about takes days, weeks and months to achieve. So if you wanna get to 30k followers, I'd say it'd take you at least a few months, if you're doing it manually or with bots (without shoutouts). To be more precise, my guess would be at least 5 months.

    I actually have 12 accounts- 6 of them have over 2k followers (that I go through spurts growing)... My newest 2 accounts I have started growing in the last 7 days & am just under 2k followers on each. This is all manual - though I just set up the other ones on my follow liker but they are growing really slow. At this point it looks like it will take several months - I'm averaging around 120 likes per post & 3-7 comments. I'm trying to figure out how to gain more involvement such as "tag a person".... I think my biggest obstacle will be when I mass unfollow my followers- hopefully they don't all unfollow me. I'm not going to do that until I reach my follow limit though

    Also, do ppl actually buy these expensive s/o's? That was my goal- grow my account big enough & offer s/o's but I'm starting to wonder if that will be a thing of the past by time I get my account big enough. I was planning to sell them at $25 per post but after inquiring w/ several big accounts all w/ 60k-1million followed charging way more - I'm starting to think $25 is far too low. Again, by time my account is big enough it may be a thing of the past

    Join kik/skype/facebook groups. Befriend them and some may even give you a free s/o.

    people do buy shoutouts once you reach a reasonable amount of likes and engagement on your pictures.. Especially companies.. I dont think it will change soon but dont waste time :p

    Im following as much as I can- gained 1000 followers since yesterday but got my second temp ban which makes me nervous. Also wondering what happens once I follow request too many private accounts- will I not be able to follow w/ them pending if there's too many?

    Too many temp bans can probably lead to a real ban, so be careful with that.

    yes, you are right, you won't be able to follow anyone with pending requests so better avoid those users
