    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading the forum for the past few days and doing some research promoting my instagram page. It's terribly hard to promote things organically/ethically. I am definitely posting some great content and have only been able to get 42 followers after 1 week. There's something wrong here.

    My goal is to get to 1 million followers within a year and was hoping someone could shed some light on using bots (with proxies?) to prevent getting banned? Also, are bots worth the $/trouble?

    I'm definitely a newbie so details are crucial for me.

    Thanks in advance

    Bots are a 100% worth it, doing it organically is just a waste of time, it's pretty hard to get banned if you do it properly, you can add me on skype if you want for more info - Donosla

    Do it organicly is NOT a waste of time. I've built 2 accounts to 2k followers within 4 days of creating the account. All manually. The ban rate with Botted accounts is higher.
    OP,you can most definitely reach 1 Million within a year if you do it right. If you want a high engagement rate,then manually is the way to go.

    At the end of the day, everything you do manually can be automated. If you track exactly what you do when growing an account manually and then write a bot that does the exact same thing but allows you to scale up to 100 accounts with just a few clicks, you win time. If you do it manually, you're wasting your time.

    As i always say, when it comes to bots-slow and steady wins the race.

    1 Million in one year might not be possible with just one account but if you're managing like 20,30 accounts (NOT a couple hundreds) then you can easily reach 1 million. I have around 150k with 13 accounts in some 40-45 days.

    I was basically saying what lone wolf said, you can automate everything to some extent and I find this much more useful with a busy schedule, it's more productive and you can reach your goals faster. Also it depends what your trying to automate as in certain cases it may be better to do it organically, as cryo said you could accomplish that same amount organically but with bots you can do it WHILE doing other things and scale it easily

    Teach the bot to think like a human, Stark did it with jarvis, I don't see why you can't do it

    use a good proxy provider
    not overdo the tasks
    never put your main acc in the bot before you know how to operate the bot well , try to use dummy acc 1st

    Just Go slow in start and then beat the shit out of it.
    And if you do vice-versa then be prepared to get banned.

    Cheers

    They're spread over 4,5 niches. Each niche has 3 account almost but i never promote them or give shout outs from onw to another because i want to avoid duplicate followers.
