    Hi Guys,

    Ive been trying to grow followers on a new IG account I started about 2 weeks ago.

    My ultimate goal is to reach about 100k followers and use IG to drive traffic to my site selling my product which is related to my IG account.

    After 2 weeks I'm at 3179 Followers / 1127 Following. I think its a pretty good start.

    I have tried several things...from bots, to macros, to online services. Some work ok...Some not so well. Im wondering what would be the best method to go about this? I have read through Battleaxewarriors great post a few times.

    So far heres what I have tried and my results / feedback

    Instagram Mega Bot - Not a bad bot. Does what it says. But I notice that it basically uses sites like iconosquare etc and in a sense is just auto clicking. Something which I could do with a self made Macro. Also I'm a mac user and the bot seems to only be available on Windows. So I'm forced to run it through Parallel's which is a bit of a pain. Ive used delay settings recommended by people on this forum. And have watched the video tutorials and understand all the features & functions. I just feel like its not very stable. Sometimes it works well and runs smooth for a few hours and hits my 300 actions a day cap. Other days its glitchy and stops working after 10 minutes. Ive also found that for whatever reason un-following users who are not following me back doesn't work very well at all.

    Instagress (Web based service) - Probably my favourite of the moment. Its web based which makes it super easy to use. But its lacks lots of features like scraping users lists. And i also find that unfollowing with it doesn't do much and takes hours to unfollow only about 20 people. Also the fact that you have to keep paying to use the service is kind of a turn off for me.

    Justunfollow (Web Based Service) - So far the best method I've personally been able to find to unfollow. I am able to unfollow 60 users every hours. Have been using it for 2 days now and seems to work well. However it doesn't seem to offer any other functions.

    Ok now heres my question. Can any one recommend a Bot (Software or web based) or a method which really works? Im not trying to be greedy. I do understand that with IG limits etc you have to pace your self and move slowly to not get limited and banned. I just want an all in 1 solution which can handle all the major tasks. Commenting / Liking on roughly 300 - 350 times per day. Un following users not following me back, roughly 200-300 per day.

    Is there any solution out there that does NOT use iconosquare, statigram etc? Is there a bot that that can handle all my above mentioned tasks reliably?

    I appreciate and help and want to thank you all in advance.

    You need to use the instagram mega bot advanced to unfollow users that are not following you back. It's a new function of the instagram mega bot advanced.

    Yes I am well aware of how to use the instagram Mega bot Advanced. I have scraped my own followers list and then set it to unfollow those that are not following me back. But it still does not seem to be able to work for long.

    Sorry but that's not how it works, with the instagram mega bot advanced, you just have to scrape a list of your users that are not following back. Go to the tab that say setting and scrape bot and turn the option called "Turn Scrape Bot OFF/ON" to the ON position, and the option called "Get Not Following Back" to the ON position and turn all the other options OFF. Now enter your username in the box called "Enter A Username:" and enter the number you would like to scrape to a list in the box called "Number To Gather:" now save the file to your desktop with the option called "Save File:" (.txt) and press run. Then when you have the Not Following Back list, load it into the tab called "Module 1" and select the unfollow option.

    You can also follow users that your not following back, just use the same directions above, but turn the option ON called "Get I Don't Follow Back" to the ON position and turn all the other options OFF.

    yeah thats what i meant. I first set it to SCRAPE a list of users not following me back and created a .txt file with that list. Then i loaded the list and set it to unfollow the list. The scrape works fine...But thats something i could do by simply going to a site like iconosquare.

    The problem is it does not work reliably. It starts off ok...crashes...just stops doing anything or sometimes the web browser section gets out of sync and then it starts doing all sorts of stuff.

    All due respect, but you must not be using the software correctly, Why are you not asking support some questions? I'll PM you the support email, it's also located on your purchase receipt. If your experiencing a freezing problem it's probably due to using it with parallels on a mac computer and not allocating enough memory for the virtual machine, or your trying to load huge lists into the bot bottoming out the memory of the virtual machine creating a stack overflow.

    All due respect to you too, but i am without a doubt using the software correctly. I would just prefer a non UBOT based option. And a less biased reply, as its quite obvious you are affiliated with Instagram Mega Bot.

    I am not trying to say anything negative about your bot or products. Just that its not right for me personally and I would like to know what other options are out there.

    fair enough, I was just trying to help you get it too work better for you. There are a lot of people that use my bot that also use Follow liker, that you can find in the Market place here on BHW. I would also recommend to you that if your going to be running lots of IM bots, to consider buying a windows machine as parallels can cause problems and not everything is compatible, and it would reduce a lot of hassle.

    Or possibly use a windows VPS, if anything.

    Currently working Instagram bots:
    Cetagram
    Instagram Mega Bot
    Followliker

    There is also Instaget but I'm not sure if its up2date, and if you want to reach 100k, than first unfollow everybody, buy some 10-20k followers, and than you can start, mass atracts mass ;)

    I actually have tried it with a bootcamp partition on my mac...running windows. The bot it self seems to work alright, But it just doesn't seem to last long before the browser goes out of sync...Or the the bot just stops doing what its supposed to (Liking, Commenting...etc). I have everything set up at slow speeds so im pretty sure its not due to any limits by instagram on my account.

    Parallels, bootcamp, you should get a windows computer to avoid these problems. I would really apresheate if you would contact support so we can find and identify the problem your having, as I have never had any reports of the browser going out of sync, and when there is a problem we get notified by our clients very quickly if we don't catch the problem our self's

    You can't have my bots. Sorry :'(
    @phame:

    Try out igerslike - it's similar to Instagress. He's got a 3 day free trial up, too.

    I'd advise against using any, as you put it, "auto-clickers". You won't get the speed and efficiency that you need, plus it was made in ubot (lol). I'm 90% sure people only use "iNsTaGrAm M3GAb0t!1!" because it's one of the only "bots" available to the public at the moment.


    That being said, I've got my own personal bots I've written to precisely fit my needs. I'd suggest you try out one of the web-based solutions or pay somebody to have one custom made for you (If you're thinking of messaging me and asking me to make you one, sorry :(. I don't sell my code). Stop wasting your time with ubot garbage.

    Ok I will reach out to support right away. Is it possible to get refunded? I have had the bot for only about 2 and a half weeks now...And there is a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee icon on the site...

    Again not saying anything negative about your bot. It just doesn't work properly for me. Also no where on your site is there a "system requirements" notice. Or anywhere that it says you need an actual windows machine to run properly? Most of the other bots like followliker clearly state that their software is compatible with Mac users using Virtual Box, Bootcamp, Parallels or VM ware.

    Followliker in my opinion is the best bot out there ...
