    Have been doing the follow/unfollow method for a while now with good success, but everytime i unfollow, those days i would not gain any new followers and sometimes even lose followers.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to gain followers even while "unfollowing"?

    It's pretty normal to lose some followers every now and then when doing follow/unfollow (especially during the unfollow phase) when they find our you are not following anymore.

    Obviously, you could follow and unfollow at the same time (as long as that's possible with the software you are using), however I remember someone once told me this increases the chance of getting banned, so might not be the smartest move. Maybe do some "Tag a friend"-posts or use similar techniques to make your followers tell their friends about your page during the unfollow phase? This only works if you have a decent fanbase of course.
    Anyway, always keep in mind that the vast majority of your followers don't really pay attention to how many fans you are getting (or losing) per day.

    By the way, what do you need steady growth for? Just to make your stats look prettier or do you plan to deal with companies and fear they will refuse to do business with you because you seem fishy?

    brother you need to creating tensions or feelings....

    examples... if you using fake girl profile.... "gonna go shopping for bikini soon... will post pics soon... let me know what you think ;) " ors "gonna confess something on 15 xxx month about something...."
    i copied those examples from famous peoples like kim kardashian.... they are good examples to observes and following....

    but if your profile is legit.... and you post once a whiles then no post for some time then post again... you will lose followers.... because when you so long no post then post again they be thinking you quiet profile and will unfollow.... you must be consistent or at least creating emotions

    but dont keep overdoing it... if you keep creating tension but nothing you will also lose followers... thats the hint i can give.... be creative and observing what others doing ;)

    if you need more new following followers you need to post something virals so your followers share.... when they shares their followers see and follow you.... think of good examples like the blue-black dresses

    Like Defcon507 said.

    Produce good content. Easier said then done but content is king.

    In my niche, it is hyper competitive and I don't play that F/UF game. Some of my peers do. Never done it. I had 10K followers and only followed 4 people. Social blade shows no anomalies of F/UF.

    They get pissed off I don't follow them. I've gotten DM asking why I don't follow anyone.
    In the end,they still end following me because I produce content they can't resist.
    Not bragging. Just telling thew truth. In one niche, I am in the photo niche and I lay out the
    Photoshop behind the scenes.I show videos of how images are created. Full screencaptures. Full on tutorials like you see on Youtube of actual commercial product photography. I share my tools, apps, techniques, and where to buy props, lighting equipment,etc. I give value.

    These posts are the kind that gets hundreds of shares. Because, they're informative.
    People ask why I share my secrets and I say why not. For example, my stories are edited productions.
    Completely done in Maya 3D with full CGI rendering shot with a Red Camera. Some images done a Phase One.

    So, you may not like me because I don't follow you but you still come around if I give you good content.

    I don't know how you guys will compete when full on studios start producing content for Instagrammers.
    My buddy did $15K of photos for an influencer. A 2 day photo shoot of following her around. Produced 30 shots but they're high quality. All videos have licensed music
    and flashy bumper and endcap animations. But I like how this is heading.

    It's normal that you lose followers while unfollowing, just keep up with it. If your stats are improving anyway, you should not worry :)
    In the meantime you can also the tricks that the other members mentioned.
