    About my IG account::

    I made an instagram account on Jan 30 ,2017 and as of right now it has 75 real followers and only 10 posts. I'm following 0 users.

    I gained my first XX followers using hashtags effectively and then I started to follow/unfollow a 100 users who have recently liked pics in my niche. (manually)

    So should I use Instagress now? Personally ,I'm very happy with my growth as I wasn't expecting it at all.

    I gained most of my followers with hashtags and not with the follow /unfollow method.

    Before my plan was to grow the account manually for one month and then use a bot but I feel like I should speed up the process.

    What do you guys think? I need some tips/points from experienced IG'ers.

    @IGKing What do you think?
    (I tagged you cause you seem to have a good reputation on BHW when it comes to IG)

    P.S The niche is something I'm passionate about so I'm not bored with it. This is NOT a churn and burn account.

    You should buy IGKing's eBook. It's very good.

    Why would you use Instagress over MassPlanner or even FollowLiker?

    @JakeRenner Gramous right? I saw the thread ,I simply don't have the money to buy anything right now .I'm trying to use IG to make some money ,so that I can invest it in a few other things.

    Isn't instagress the best and most safe bot out there for IG? Plus the other ones are paid bots. With instagress I can at least use it for 3 days to test it out and take the most out of it .

    I use it for my new business, 10K followers in 2 months, slow but growing, for something that I don't have to put any effort into, it's great, although careful with the settings.

    10k in 2 months? Wow ,impressive! So its definitely better than growing your account manually right? Are there not any downsides to using it? @iBrazilian

    I am using Massplanner for a long time. Tools don't matter that much as long as you know how to use them. :)

    You should use a tool since it saves you a lot of time. :)

    If you are satisfied with growing your account the way you're doing now, then I say keep doing whatever you're doing. If this is an account you are passionate about; and you enjoy doing it, then why risk the ban automating?

    However, assuming you don't want to spend 5+ hours a day doing manual labor, then correctly automating can be a time saver. There are plenty of resources on this forum that can point you in the right direction.

    By the way, MassPlanner has a 5 day free trial. If you plan on running it on your own PC with only one account, then you don't need to buy proxies or a VPS. I prefer MassPlanner over FollowLiker and Instagress, but that's only because I know how to use it rather efficiently. The average person on this forum is probably indifferent on which software is best - you'll get a lot of different suggestions.

    I personally don't think it's that great, but for my niche it's not the worse.

    I just purchased 1 year of instagress yesterday for like, $80.

    By then I should have at least 100K, I'll have outgrown my competitors that's been around for over 5 years.

    There aren't any downsides really, I definitely went through with the settings to best fit my niche, and I just like, follow and unfollow.

    I like Instagress. I use it for one account. The few $ is no big deal. It's very easy to manage right on my phone. If you are running one account, I think it's great.

    Massplanner is the best in my opinion ! If you run more than 2 account instagress is bad.

    Interesting. I Have used the 3 day trial with instagress and I was quite happy with it, everything is very neat and intuitive, but it does seem to be hard/expensive if you want to use it for several accounts.
    It seems Massplanner is more expensive than Followliker overall, so I'm yet to understand the feature differences.

    Crossed a 100 followers!
    @IGKing sorry for the late reply,I was too busy.

    I'm passionate about it,so I think I will continue growing my account manually just like how I am doing it right now till March.

    Then I will probably automate it.

    5 days trial? That's nice ,I am gonna try out all 3 and see which suits me the best.

    Thanks for taking your time to reply!And thanks for telling me about the 5 day trial w/ massplanner!


    @tbdrogue how many followers were you able to get within those 3 days?

    I started the first day immediately with normal settings (not slow as recommended), because it was an account I was growing manually already actively. Then on the two last days switched to a speed between fast and normal. Only liking and f/u, no commenting. Those 3 days got me 170 new nicely targeted followers.

    I'm using followliker for 1 account, in a very small niche i managed to get 10k followers in 3 months with very light settings.
    IMO followliker is nice, maybe massplaner better but i chose it because it has no time limit. I bought a lifetime for 1 account (costs somth like 59$) and im satisfied. Very easy to use btw.

    Wow that's good! @tbdrogue
    I think its better not to set comments IMO. Sometimes the comments makes no sense,I found a user commenting the same thing on 2 of my pics ..the comment wasn't even related to my pic ._. Kinda

    Hi! I have an account which I used to have managed by VA's from Upwork. But content posted late, excuses etc. I giver Instagress for my one account a try. Slow settings, A schedule with 12 hours a day and kiek and follow and unfollow should be more or less safe I guess
