    It would take like 2 weeks to follow 7500 and my ratio would be super ugly lol

    You should never follow more then your page has. It makes your page look terrible, also the follow/unfollow is bad you are only stacking people who follows you because you follow them and they are not intrested in your page and therefor your like ratio are going to suck in the future.

    I follow up to 7.5k and then unfollow back to 0. I can't do both at the same time because it leads to 24h ban unfortunately.

    I usually follow people and set it that they are automatically unfollowed after 3 days if they don't follow back, that should be enough time for them to follow back if they want to.

    I have just started with Instagram with 1 manual acc. All I do is what you have described (fallow/unfollow). As you said, most likely the like ratio will be affected in future. How can I optimize things. Can you throw few quick tips?

    I run an acc for my clothing/skateboard brand.

    Most users I target are indeed interested in what I post.

    I receive 200-400 likes with 3k followers, first 50 in 15 mins depending on when I post.

    While this can be the case most of the time, I have found that it also
    highly depends on niche, content and targeting. If you have all of these at a high quality then you can still see great engagement.

    What would be your solution? I also feel like following/unfollowing gives a bad ratio but one day I tried only liking a bunch of pictures a day and it gave me like 150 followers only

    I found that 4k is my sweet spot. If you are posting quality content and making sure you try following people interested in a particular niche that will help your engagement.
