    In your opinion, would it be better to grow one account then when that has many followers give shoutouts to your other accounts to grow them afterwards? Or would you recommend, if I were to have 3 accounts running, to do these all at once?

    I always do one, and at max two at a time. I do it to focus. Others are able to run more. It's all about if you are capable and won't get "burned out" on Instagram.

    I have several accounts running.

    I categorize them into 2 separate groups. 1 group is for growing each account to its full potential (50k-100k accounts) while the others are used for testing (churn and burn). Those test accounts help me figure out what's working and the type of limits that IG currently has.

    Yeah it's much easier for me to focus on one. This way I can use the time to follow/unfollow on my main account that I wold be wasting when I constantly switch between other accounts.

    What do you mean by 'the types of limits'? Does that just mean looking for the most popular niches etc?


    Also does anyone know the amount of followers it takes to start earning money from shoutouts, approximately?

    Can I have a quick question? How do you make your new accounts? Do you just buy a proxy, make an email from that proxy and create the acc in Bluestacks? Or what is the method of this. Wanted to create one more acc with a proxy and bluestacks (just installed, didn't manage other acc), but I got "proxy flagged as open proxy" message for 3 different proxies from SSL. Also tried igerslike, I just can't add the proxy to the list, it's always a fail. Changed to proxy-n-vpn and can't add this either...

    I think it would be a no brainer to this question... run as many as you can possibly handle... I have a really good friend of mine run 5 of mine posting 3 times a day on them for $45 every two weeks, and I also have 6 that I post on personally 2-3x a day. Btw these 12 accounts are between IG/pinterest/twitter
    (all these accounts are also on settings on followliker - I just do the posting)

    Needless to say, I think more would be better if you can handle it to do more... the more accounts you have, the more followers your gaining, and the bigger your follower base in the long run.

    Not there yet, but from reading the forum people usually say 10k+ I think.

    I wouldn't wanna go above 3 atm because then I'd have to get a proxy an it'll slow down my internet too much. I have 1k followers (2 days old) atm on a healthy food IG page but unsure what niche the other accounts will be in. I'd want to do niches that will earn the most money from shoutouts etc. Do you or anyone else have any ideas which are the most profitable niches?

    I agree with mdraino, he pretty much summed it up, grow as many as possible. It is pretty much auto-pilot work, considering you're using a bot to grow, all you have to do is post pictures, which can be automated as well.

    Proxies do not slow down your Internet at all. You don't have to set up a proxy for your whole Internet, you can only use proxy inside FL for the specified accounts. As for profitable niches, there are way too many, fitness, fashion, and many more.

    I haven't been using a bot lol just myself following/unfollowing people, I wouldn't really know where to start (newb). Do you have any other niche ideas, I'm gonna start a fitness one soon.

    Well it seems like fitness and nutrition is the go to niche for beginners nowadays. Even myself has multiple in this niche. I'm honestly surprised how well those accounts actually do considering how many fitness/nutrition accounts are already out there.

    Also, if you plan on doing this whole journey manually, thats gonna be one hell of a journey my friend. I would make the investment in a bot (followliker is my bot of choice)

    Look it up in the search bar and see what its about. If you can afford to make the investment, this is the first thing you need to invest in, and worry about collecting money later..

    Yeah I'll probably invest pretty soon in FL. The things is is that I've been 'Temporarily Banned' from following people, probably because I've followed too many too soon. I have 1.1k followers atm and don't see how I can grow quickly with this temp ban and not being able to follow/unfollow people. Does anyone have any advice?

    Edit: nevermind it appears I've been unbanned after a day

    Can anyone explain, in simple layman's terms, what FL actually does. I've looked em up but I'm a bit confused about it all. :S

    Follows, comments, likes and unfollows with your account. Everything is automated, so you don't have to do everything manually and waste your time.

    ah okay thankyou. Isn't there a limit (for following/unfollowing etc) which Instagram allows though and how come people don't get banned?

    Yeah there's a limit for every activity. Nobody knows the exact numbers, but it may be affected by the accounts age, follower, following number, and history of bans.

    I'm doing 300 follows, 300 likes right now in my new acc. No problem so far, adding about +20 every day until ~500.
