    Right, so I have a business idea - i've got it all planned out and ready to go but obviously it's a good idea to try and create a buzz about your brand before you launch. Hence why i've started to bot an IG account, I was just wondering, do people create loads of a account and bot them to then redirect then IG traffic to their main brands account or do a lot of people just bot their brand account (with the risk of it being banned).

    So yeah, what do you prefer to do....bot a number of account to supply one or just bot one overall?

    all help is welcome! :)

    Different people have different methods.

    What I do personally is, I have several smaller accounts leading/redirecting to my main one, but I as well do certain activites with my main account, to keep it natural. I would reccomend trying to stimulate natural activity on your IG accounts as much as possible, just to keep it safe.

    It is all about testing and seeing what works the best for you! Hope that helped!

    Good luck :)

    Using different accounts to drive traffic to your main brand account on Instagram was the best way to grow @Brand. It somewhat still is a good method. But, unfortunately, it has become increasingly difficult to do so these past few months since IG toughened up. In the past, you could automate, for example, 10 accounts, each commenting some 400 comments a day, tagging your @Brand. And that would yield great results. Today, you would need 40 (or even more) accounts to get the same results because you can barely make 100 comments a day from one account without getting temporarily banned. Unless, of course, you spin thousands of comments to a point where Instagram can't detect that you're using the infamous spamming method. And even with that, Instagram can still detect that you're tagging the same @Brand with all your comments, and may hit you with temporary bans every few hours -- which would really suck and eventually be too time consuming a method to grow @Brand. What most people are doing nowadays is 'Following and Un-following'. If you can target your niche audience, and not abuse the 'follow' automation, you should see great results. Just keep things natural. Don't follow a billion people in one day. Set your bot to follow in a manner that a human would follow. With intervals. Don't let things run 24/7 because humans need sleep and bots don't, and Instagram can smell them from a mile.
