    Just curious, how much have you guys spent to grow your Instagram account? On bots, shoutouts and other services. How much did you grow to and how long did it take? Thinking of investing to grow my fitness page - any tips greatly appreciated

    You can reach 1m without spending any $
    and you can reach 1k followers spending 1k$

    I've growed an instagram to 90k without spending any $ on shoutouts in 7 months, but if you like to grow fast, then pay wisely

    Ah and growing your 90K account did you use a bot or SFS? Or some other method?

    Thanks

    Hi Ramyh96! How would you pay wisely exactly? What would you recommend? I´m willing to pay to grow faster as keeping a good engagement. I´m willing to pay but I´m realizing I´m probably wasting my money in shout outs that bring me 300-400 followers for a fortune.... What would you do with a budget for one account? In what should be spent?

    Thanks!

    Probably up in the 5 digits by now.

    Personal bot.
    Tons of shoutouts for my clients.
    Also paid $1,300 for the username @quotes and flipped it for a 200% profit so that doesn't really count.
    HQ proxies for accounts (3 on each proxy).

    I agree with ramyh96 tho. It's all about the decisions and not the price.

    Only paid for the unlimited license of FL but it's work related, so I get paid for using it.

    Even better, I also get to grow my personal accounts using it! ;)

    it was 3 years ago when i touched ig last on a mass scale
    xgram i got for free, instadominate was $50 i believe (the best 2 public bots ever existed for ig)
    accs were free, i created them with xgram, no phone verify was needed, no email verify either
    private proxies: 25-50 dedicated proxies were around $35-70/month
    was making $200-300 a day, so it was a pretty good ROI :)
    wasn't building any accounts, i was just burning through them, was using 50 fresh accs every day, maxed out their 7.5k following limit in a matter of a minute or two with instadominate using an ig glitch, so i was following 375k fresh people every day, this was going on for a few months
    haven't spent a single cent on SOs

    1,5 or 2 years ago i bought followliker unlimited ig version for ~$100, but i have never really got back into the game

    I spend around 70$ (bought FL), biggest waste of my life tbh. Bots are worthless for IG imo opinion. You can get popular on IG without spending even 1$ but it will cost A LOT of time and energy.

    Not the case. I guess everyone has its own opinion about bots and social media

    Lol, FL is definitely not a waste of money. You probably just don't use it right or use it for like 1 account which then it is indeed a waste.
    If you're growing 1 account then yeah, easy to grow manually, but think of people who scale bigger than you, 100+, 1000+ accounts, FL is an amazing tool for them.
