    Hey all, so I know iMacros is pretty common knowledge in the world of Instagram, but I just decided to come up with this little script after reading an article titled "User Acquisition for Hackers".

    In this, austenallred stated that using the Follow, Like, Like, Like method has shown the best followback rates on IG. Rates upwards of 25%! So I gave it a shot with this iMacros script, and I'm giving it out to everyone else to test for themselves and see what their results are.

    HOW TO USE THIS SCRIPT:
    1. Download iMacros for your preferred browser (I am using Firefox for this example)
    2. Copy/Paste this as a new script (go to documents/imacros/macros and create a new .iim file for those of you who don't know how to do this)
    Remove the spaces between the URL GOTO
    3. Edit the tag that you want to follow/like from
    4. Login to websta.me with your IG account (100% safe to use)
    5. Run this script on loop for however many accounts you want to follow

    Code:
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    URL GOTO=h t t p : / / websta . me / tag / yourtaghere
    SET !VAR1 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*6 + 1); randomNumber;")
    SET !VAR2 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*8 + 1); randomNumber;")
    SET !VAR3 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*4 + 1); randomNumber;")
    SET !VAR4 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*20 + 8); randomNumber;")
    WAIT SECONDS=3
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=CLASS:username
    WAIT SECONDS=2
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Follow
    WAIT SECONDS={{!var1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Like
    WAIT SECONDS={{!var2}}
    TAG POS=2 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Like
    WAIT SECONDS={{!var3}}
    TAG POS=3 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Like
    WAIT SECONDS={{!var4}}
    BACK
    I am using a random value generator to make it seem more human-like (less likely to get caught by IG). My findings so far with using this method are about 30-40% followback rates so far!! I am using a very interactive niche to target, so results may vary to be honest. Please suggest any changes you may have! I want to hear your input and results from this!!!

    Thamk you for the kind words! I have been in and around SMM and other areas of marketing for quite some time, but just recently have begun to take it more seriously after pursuing a marketing degree in college. I'm going to try and use this script to build an account for 2-3 weeks and see what happens, may post the results after the time has passed. I may make a second version to automatically pause (30 mins - a couple of hours) and then re-run the script in a random number of loops. May need a JS version of that though. I'll look more into this while I'm at work later today!

    Thanks for this, I'm going to start a new account today and use this method. I'll post the results here! Let me know if you get that other version working!

    Just a quick suggestion, "warm up" the new account over the course of a week or so. What I mean by this is maybe do 10-20 follows the first day, then 30-40, then 50-60, and so on till you reach about 200 follows per day. This will keep your account from getting banned. Also, make sure you're uploading at least once a day ☺️

    That's exactly how this method is done. Very simple and easy. It takes a bit more time, but from what I've seen and others have also seen is that it yields a much higher return.

    Thanks for this.

    How would you go about un-following after using this script?

    EDIT: Just tried it, awesome. Is there a way to automate it to run hourly?

    Either you could do it manually, use a software like Followliker, or certain services like crowdfire or others like it. I personally use followliker for pretty much everything IG, works phenomenal. I unfollow all who don't follow me back after 5 days.

    Okay.

    I'll definitely be getting Followliker, there's a lot of praise for it around here.

    What are the settings I can use for this script to make it look real?

    You can modify the "SET !VARN EVAL" functions to change the wait between the following, each like, and how long it takes to return back to the tag search. The function is as follows:
    Code:
    SET !VAR1 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*6 + 1); randomNumber;")
    . The 6 is the largest number, the 1 is the smallest. So it will choose a random interval between 1 and 6 seconds basically. You can change the values of each !VAR to make it perform the likes faster or slower on average :). I have this set to where it maxes at ~247 follows/hr and has a minimum of 88. That is a little fast for most people, so you can slow down the time between likes or the time it waits before returning if you'd like.

    Follow Back rate is depending on niche not what "magic" script you use.

    Thanks for this,
    The script wouldn't run for me unless I deleted the first "SET !ERRORIGNORE YES" bit, but then I run into the problem that the script stops if it opens an account that im already following because it cant find the "follow" button

    This isn't a "magic" script at all. I also stated in the post that it depends from niche to niche on the followback rate. This script is just automating a proven method that increases the followback ratio by making it seem like you are actually interested in their feed.

    In the imacros tab at the bottom where you hit run, there is a field where you can enter a number and hit play loop. That number is how many times the script will loop.
