    Above is a chart of my very first attempt at growing an instagram account.

    [​IMG]

    Want to make this post brief and scannable so here's the quick facts:
    • I post twice a day usually.
    • The first two weeks was all manual
    • Bought one shoutout for $5 (for 2hrs). It got 1,000 likes, I followed a lot of people who liked it and gained 50 followers from it.
    • I began using automation midway through week 2.
    • on the 21st after first trying to follow 500 users per day using InstaPlus I got a message for phone verification and havn't gone near 500 since. Working my way back up to it.
    • Tried a few S4S with accounts <10k but no real results.
    • Getting 100-150 likes on a normal post, highest was 300+


    Going forward I may buy shoutouts to accelerate my following. I'm now using Instagress for automation (primarily 'cus my instaplus trial ran out and I wanted to try out both).

    I also want to get to a consistent 100+ followers per day and then unfollow all every 4th day.

    No monetisation as of yet, might use PLR eBooks to build an email list.

    Great progress. Thinking of buying a shoutout myself.
    Good luck with this.

    Thank you, gonna work my up to following 500 per day.

    Is it possible to let instagress run 24hours a day on fast without getting banned?

    it depends on the account to be honest, if its aged, profiled well and active, then you can follow and do alot
