    Hey guys,

    I have a small IG account with only 2200 followers. I've had FL for one year, but only started using it recently. My account is 18 months old and promotes my ecommerce site (women's fashion). My IG is updated 3 times a day, 40% original content, 60% unoriginal.

    So far I have been using FL to follow accounts who are following popular similar brands.

    I used shoutouts in the past but the results were abysmal.

    I know if I made a couple tweaks I could grow this account rather quickly. Would anyone be so kind as to share their settings or anything I can do to speed up the process?

    Thanks in advance.

    in a niche such as fashion, content is king. the better your content is, the more attraction users will have to your account.

    It's very important to have high quality content, but it won't get you many followers to be honest. It's better if you combine high quality content with doing other tasks, such as following people, doing SFS and so on.

    Content is the key, however you may substantially support and enhance the growth of your account by doing such activities as liking, commenting, following, DMing, etc.

    Don't start with crazy settings straight away, start off slowly and gradually bring the settings up :)

    The shout out results were bad more than likely because it's difficult to find a high quality shout out source. The more shout outs a person sells on their account, the less active the account becomes.

    Think of shout outs as currency. The more bank notes there is the less value they hold. It gets to a point where there is so many bank notes printed they become worth less than the value printed on them.
    [I hope that makes sense]

    Every time you want to buy a shout out ask the promoter how long he/she has been doing them. Anything over 2 weeks on one account and you're already starting to lose value.

    Make sure you're using high quality content that will make people want to click through to your site. It's easy for you to say yes you are posting good content, but you'll never know unless you experiment.

    If the account is 18 months old like you say, that's a nicely aged account. You can push the limit on it fairly hard without ban, just be careful.
