    Hello everyone!

    I own a 35k account that I've grown all manually and taken about 3 months and two weeks

    I want to start two more accounts as I feel I'm ready (im in this for the long run.. No churn and burn I want these to eventually get up to millions of followers)

    So my question is.. should I create the accounts, let them age for a couple weeks, then do the tedious follow/unfollow until like 10k? (until it will grow sufficiently organically)

    OR

    Should I purchase a month of Instagress and whack them on there on safe settings?

    I don't want no proxies or vps blah blah.. My only fear is that I'll get both accounts banned.. And worst case scenario my 35k acc.

    -Or if anyone had any alternatives?

    Thanks in advance for any advice given!

    Instagress is in my opinion quiet safe and easy to use. One does not have that many options like followliker has, but for your expectations its totally enough even with new accounts ( they are pretty safe from getting banned)

    The settings of Instagress doesn't even allow for example such a high following rate that instagram can detect your botting activity.

    It even gives you the advise that you should start the following process on slow for some days just to be safe.

    For following manual is always better and you will get a better results ,and you can use instagress to unfollow people but don't risk to put your 35k account on a bot you will lose it believe me whatever the bot and the settings you are using

    I think the risk of losing your 35K account is real. But if your 35K account is phone validated and ou own the number I think you could try it on a very slow and save level. IG won't ban your account on the first bad behaviour, instead a checkpoint (phone/mail) will appear.. which is a warning for you.

    I would suggest Instagram, I don't see any risk in it.

    I would go the manual route since you do not want to risk burning the account.

    Yeah that's interesting, I got stuck in a much lower number doing it manually

    I am always against the bot activity when we talk about building accounts for the long run. So I would not use both instagress and followliker.
    I would look for a quality account for sale built organically by someone with bigger pages. They usually have an high engagement and a good organic daily growth. I know that it is an investment is much better.
    Or you could try to do it on your own doing little follow/unfollow (only at the beginning) and then start to network with other accounts in your niche.

    I mean cooperates with other people in your same niche. Share ideas and strategies, s4s, l4l, helping each other. These still remain the best ways to grow :)

    it actually does now, they updated it like a month ago. Now you can set a custom number of follows per hour. :)

    Why don't you do both of them?

    Create two accounts, one let it grow through Instagress and the other account, grow it manually.

    Do some A-B testing, see which one you see fit.
