    Sup everyone, I'm a long time lurker on this site and I've read tons of journeys and countless other threads related to IM & SMM and I've decided to apply what I've read and do my own thing

    I've actually been growing accounts for the past 6 months but I haven't been consistent. What I have to work with:

    - FollowLiker
    - VPS
    - New & aged accounts

    I have about 8 accounts running, and 3 or 4 different niches. I'm seeing that 2 of the niches stand out so I might rebrand my other accounts and have 8 accounts with 2 niches. I've been REALLY inconsistent/lazy with this project so I decided to create a journey thread to motivate myself

    My accounts so far:

    And I have no idea why this pic is so big. I just got done tweaking some settings about 30 minutes before posting this thread. I believe the changes will optimize the process so that the tasks are being carried out more efficiently.

    300-500 follows/day on new accounts
    800-1000 follows/day on aged accounts

    700-900 unfollows/day on new accounts
    900-1100 unfollows/day on aged accounts

    With 25 - 45 second delays on aged accounts and 55 - 75 second delays on new accounts

    I was unfollowing like 700-900/day max before. And never following anywhere near 1,000 on aged accounts. I believe increasing both unfollows and follows by 200ish each should slightly speed up the process and not put me in danger of being banned

    Do you consider to monetize any one of your accounts? or do you want to selling it?

    I'm monetizing them eventually. I don't want to spam my followers with ads or offers though, so I'll probably do something different than sponsored posts and OGAds.

    Like what?

    This is what's changed over 2 days. Most of my accounts are unfollowing and I have a few of them unfollowing everyone, so I'm actually losing followers on half of my accounts but still gaining overall

    Thanks everyone for the kind words!! So here's the deal. A lot of these pages have been on autopilot for the past 6 months (on and off because I've been halfassing it) so they haven't been optimized as best as possible. I leave FL running on the VPS for a few days and see that some accounts are gaining 20-50 followers a day. That's a HORRIBLE followback ratio in my opinion, as I think 100+ should be the norm. Still, I've seen some growth..just not enough. I'll be tweaking things throughout the week to see what yields the best results...Also, keep in mind that these accounts all unfollow/follow on different days. Sometimes an account spends 4-5 days unfollowing so it barely sees growth throughout the week.

    Are you posting at all on these accounts?
    Or just doing F/U?

    I'm posting on all of them. I just don't post everyday.. Which I probably should be doing. I still have to learn how to automate FL better. Looking for an efficient way to scrap pics and captions and just repost them on my accounts
