    I have 8.8k followers and I get between (800 - 2000) likes.

    I'm mostly creating this thread because recently my organic growth has been extremely slow which is making me want to quit. I hope this thread motivates me to carry on.

    I used the follow and unfollow method until I hit 4k, from which point I grew 100-150 followers organically (every day) so I stopped following and unfollowing people.

    20th June 2017
    I have 8,802 followers.

    In 7 days I hope to have at least 8,900 followers.

    My opinion is that you should not stop follow-unfollow method untill you hit 20-25k followers, I do not think your account is big enough for good organic growth.

    okay sorry i don't get it. You get 150 organic followers but you still place your target at a 100 followers added in a week?

    I was planning on doing that but then I started gaining 150 followers organically. MY growth has stopped now so I'm going back to the follow/unfollow method.


    I usually get 150 organic followers but for the last few days I've been gaining only 10 - 15 followers. I think it's because I don't post as often (due to exams).

    Do you also like and comment on your followers profiles. This helps you get even more interaction from them. You have bots here on BHW which can help you do that.

    Good luck man!

    Thank you.

    Also I don't bother liking or commenting on people's posts (except for some of my loyal followers' posts - but mostly out of gratitude than anything else).

    UPDATE:

    I found out that I was shadow banned so I kept losing followers (so I was not able to reach 8,900 followers by 27th June).

    However, I am now out of the shadow ban. I currently have 9,045 followers (gained 200+ organic followers over two days).

    I aim to have 9,350 followers in 7 days (by 14th July).

    I found out I was shadow banned because my hashtags weren't working.

    Follow/unfollow method leads to a shadow ban, especially if you're following and unfollowing a large number of people in a short time span.
