    I got it, bro. My point was, I don't need help from slightly bigger accounts. What's the point of putting my account at risk just to get a shoutout from a 10k-20k account. At this rate I'll be at 20k followers after a month or two.

    How many accounts do you follow/unfollow everyday?

    What do you use to scrape accounts to follow?
    Do you manually go through related accounts, or use a bit to generate a list?

    I'll unfollow most of the accounts today and tomorrow, so I expect a decrease of 100-200 followers.

    newb here, Could you possibly post here some example posts you might post there?
    Very interested in this thread and have been watching since you first posted.
    I myself am using this thread as kinda thesaurus

    I just take a photo in the fitness/nutrion niche and post it on Instagram with the appropriate hashtags.

    UPDATE:

    Currently I'm on 24 hour temporary ban because of too agressive unfollowing (I guess). So no update today.

    Fuck, i've seen a lot of members here claim you can use a follow/unfollow bot with 100 instagram accounts and get 40k followers per account after a year... From reading a lot of other sections, it seems like these bans occur a lot.

    May I ask OP, did you create a fresh account or did you buy an old account?

    I manage 20 accounts at the moment, and I can say that 40k followers per account is the average. Although, some of my accounts will hit more than 200k in a year.

    2 years will be enough, I believe. It depends on a lot of things, Instagram growth and popularity is the main.

    Is it possible that the follow and unfollow ratio resulting in a temp or perm ban might be similar? My guess would be that the unfollow might slightly be lower? idk if that made sense

    Don't think so, mate. I just unfollow way too fast. My guess is that 60 accounts per hour is the absolute maximum you should go at the moment.

    yes keep in mind that instagram has API limits, 60/hour is the limit, any more than that you raised some flags!
