    Hello everybody,

    I am starting this journey as a motivation to continue building my Instagram account. I have started it 3 days ago.
    What am I doing?
    Following people interested in my niche; Liking pictures and some comments too; Posting targeted pictures;
    Just to remind you, I am not using any tool, it is 100% manually built account.

    My stats

    It's gonna be really hard if it's 100% manual...plus if you try to monetize it then the risk you get is not worth the effort you put in imo

    Yes I know it will be pretty hard, but I have researched this niche and it is pretty good. I have already bought a domain and I will build a website which will be promoted on instagram.
    Also, what If I make 5 accounts that will comment with my "username" and like pictures? That will boost my followers for sure, but what kind of bot should I use? Can anyone suggest me anything? Thank you very much for your help.

    I confused what makes it difficult just because you're doing it manual?
    I run three accounts manually without any issues, literally 5-10 minutes a day per account.

    My followers are currently 1505. That is not bad for a manually account. But what do you suggest to do so I can grow bigger? This will probably take up to 4-5 months to have 100k. Please note that I am not willing to spend lot of money on Instagram.

    Buy a bot, shoutouts so it goes faster. And we you can do some S4S with other accounts

    I think Followliker and Megabot are the most recommended.

    As I can see it is only 30$ which is not too big investment. Anyway, can Instagram delete/suspend my account because of using bots?
    Thanks

    With Followliker you should use proxies if you're running various accounts on it. And you should have the right settings, which you can look up here on the board.
    To answer your question: Yes, you can get penalized for using bots.

    If you are in good niche and build a big account then it can give you good returns
    but then it depends on Niche and your strategy

    Until now I am all legal, no bots or any tools. My account has been confirmed by email and mobile phone. And I got this message 5 minutes ago:
    "You're temporarily blocked. t looks like you were misusing this feature by going too fast. You've been temporarily blocked from using it. We restrict certain content and actions to protect our community. Tell us if you think we made a mistake."
    After this message I contacted them and explained that this is a mistake. Will my account be unblocked? Has anyone had this problem?

    Thank you!

    How exactly do you get followers?

    Do you just follow people and post your stuff? Or something else :)?


    Good luck with your journey. Start manually, learn the techniques, buy a custom a bot.

    I just follow people interested in my niche and post pictures. But the problem right now is that I am blocked by Instagram and I cannot follow anyone. :/

    This is the issue when you try to run a car on jet speed it hits a block
    I suggest you try this now with 10 accounts and this time try not only following but also quality content posting + linking + commenting

    I had quality content, about 20 pictures each of them with 200-300 likes. I did average likes & comments. All was looking pretty natural. The only bad think is that I was following 5000 in just 2 and a half days.

    That is incredibly high. I follow anywhere from 100-150 a day MAX.
    Another day and you would have hit the 7500 following limit.

    Yes I know it is high. I actually planned to follow 7500 in 4 days, but due to Instagram ban I am not able at this moment. Anyway, I will update this thread tomorrow with news.
