    I purchased my account at 15k and used automation till 20k, then I stopped because one of my other accounts got banned due to my followbot.

    Since then, I've been gaining a steady 2k a week, but now I've since stalled and gained almost nothing since 50k. Should I start using automation again? Is this the only way to spur follower growth again?

    I am in a pretty small 15 person engagement group, nothing else. Everything is basically organic on this account.

    Do you really wanna risk losing your 50k account? I would just join more engagement groups and post more often.

    Are you making any money from these followers?

    What niche? Some niches are experiencing bad engagement.

    Good point.

    How can I find some actually good engagement groups? Also, most people have Telegram bots, where can I get one?

    I'm struggling and trying hard to- I just started monetizing last month, so far in June I've made $20 in shoutouts. Not much.

    I also built a 1k email list using the account that I've been trying to monetize. That hasn't been working either. Really stumped.

    Affiliates didn't work, so I started offering online personal training because I'm in the fitness niche. So far while blasting both social media and the email list I've only had 6 people say they were interested and they haven't responded to my emails.

    Fitness niche, bodybuilding in specific. Is this one of them?

    Fitness/bodybuilding is a very hard niche to improve. If you're posting other's viral posts, you will see your engagement fall. Instagram is noticing the same posts on different accounts, so the latter ones are the ones that get hit.

    If you are posting your own original content, then the only thing could be that it needs to be more HQ, or different. Posting the same ass shot, or how a weight is lifted gets old.

    Ok, I am reposting other people's content. Is there any way I can try to rectify my engagement rate? Should I try to look for very old posts that haven't been made in a while to try and get around the algorithm?

    IG has caught on to re-posted media. YOu need to change the content. Some add MD5 hash changes, some re-edit the videos.

    Ok, so if I change the MD5 hash I'm in the green?
