My girlfriend has been doing this method for a couple years, and I switched to it as well. Many of you just go on popular twitter/instagram accounts in your niche and follow copy their followers. Following people that talk about a certain keywork is common. The method I use is neither. In this example I will user twitter but this apply to instagram as well. First, find a popular and active account in your niche. I chose @Fitness: Now, find a RECENT tweet that has at least 100 retweets (in case of instagram, find a recent post that has many likes): Now, just follow everyone that retweeted that tweet: Note: It's WAY easier to follow them on the app (iOS app is better than Android app): (You can see around 100 people in the mobile app) Now just find more tweets and repeat. The good thing about this is that people will follow you back almost right away, as they were on twitter just moments ago to retweet. I have made a python script that does this in my 30 twitter accounts automatically using twitter's API. Then, it unfollows who hasn't follow them back and makes all the accounts send DMs (direct messages) to all their new followers thanking them and telling them to follow my money twitter account, AND my money instagram account. The good thing is, I get a lot of free instagram followers with no effort, and a lot of active twitter followers too. My main account stats: Combining all my accounts together I have over 250k active followers. I apologize if someone else shared this method already. I considered buying Instaliker, but I'm not sure if it can function as this method. Also, my python script runs all my 30 twitter accounts daily on a $5/month Digital Ocean VPS.
