    I have a shoutout page at 11k followers in about a week and a half. I gain followers pretty slowly because lots of people get mad they don't get a shoutout and unfollow. Probably a net of 400-500 followers a day. I would like it to grow by at least 1k followers per day, and I'm not sure what the best approach to that is. A requirement of getting a shoutout is to give me a shoutout (like most shoutout pages) but it still isn't enough. I have found following the followers of popular shoutout pages works well, but it is time consuming as InstaGet can't do that (I would have to collect IDs every second). Anybody here had success with a shoutout page? And if so, how? Or if anyone has any ideas, please share them :)

    It's generally better to worry about getting followers and then the people wanting shout outs will come naturally. 11K isn't a huge account and for that reason people won't be begging for a shoutout on your account.

    You can either buy some followers or follow a huge followback list and hope that you get some followers and then unfollow the ones that don't follow back within 2/3 days.

    That's what I've done and it's always worked.

    I will be trying that, thank you! And to your first point, my followers are very active. The person I shoutout usually gets 100 followers which is pretty good for a page with 10k, seeing as how pages with 400k only give people maybe 500 followers. I get so many people asking and they get pissed when they don't get a shoutout, which is why I'm actually going to sell shoutouts soon because so many people want them.

    You're welcome. You're right, that is a pretty good rate. Have you thought of a price?

    For now, it will be very cheap, like $3 lol. at 50k it will be $5, 100k will be $8, 200k will be $15, etc.

    It's just quite slow right now. Do you have a suggestion for which bot I should use to do the following? InstaGet gives too many captchas.

    yeah thats a great idea, i did it last week, worked really well but what amount would you recommend to unfollow, i unfollowed about 200-300 people manually then i think i had a temporary ban because i couldn't follow or unfollow anyone for about a week :/

    I used InstaAssault but its gone private now I think. If people are getting that many followers from each of your shutouts you could probably charge more.

    The rules are get tighter and tighter. Don't unfollow them very quickly and don't do too many at a time. I think it also depends how many followers you have as I've been able to unfollow a lot more accounts on accounts I've had 100K as apposed to getting banned when I only had 2K followers.
