    Good luck bro. I'm starting to doubt myself about the fitness/nution niche. Looks way too saturated. :/

    Since you're doing everything manually, how do you make sure you're not following the same people you previously followed and unfollowed?

    You don't. I suspect around 10-15 % of the accounts are followed/unfollowed on a mulitple occasions.

    Sorry I am new.

    When you do IG accounts and post:

    1. How many post do you make per day?

    2. What do you post on your IG account? I mean do you only post stuff related to your niche?

    3. Where do you find the content of your post? Can you just take an image/post of somebody else's account or google and use these images as the content of your post?

    TIA

    UPDATE:

    Day 17: 1652 Followers
    Posts: 17

    I created a second account. Already started warming up. I decided that when I'm following on Account 1 I'll unfollow on Account 2 and vice versa. Hopefully that will help me escape the temporary bans.

    Bro, how are you getting these followers ? I post 2 pics everyday in the fitness niche and hardly get 2-3 followers everyday.

    Thanks.

    Good luck with your journey OP. I'm also growing a IG account manually using the follow/unfollow method but not much people are following me back (niche: travel). I'm impressed with the number of followers you've got after 17 days (1652 :eek:).
    After reading the entire thread I got following questions to my mind.

    1. Since you are doing this manually, how much time do you spend in IG to follow 400-600 per day?
    2. Is IG is not blocking you by following this much of profiles per day?

    1. 45-60 minutes per day
    2. That why I started a second account, to slow things down a little bit.

    hey, im about to hop on the instagram train AGAIN after losing like you a 50k account ( it got hacked )

    Its been a while since i was on instagram, i heard that when you unfollow/follow alot you get shadowbanned.
    Luckily my 2nd account at 15k did not get affected by it, however the engagement is really really low like maybe 2% instead of 30-40%
    I suspect that due to not posting for over a year now.

    However the shadowban, thoughts?

    Good luck to you bro

    That's a classic shadowban.. You get 2 % engagement because only your followers see your posts. You account doesn't show up in the 'hashtag' news feed.
