    Hi, so it's time to start another journey. This time i will rate Instagram against pinterest since i see alot of questions about which network to use. All accounts have already been active for a while, but most on instagram so instagram will start with a little advantage. My goal is 1 - 2 million followers in total on instagram and pinterest together. I will update this atleast weekly but mostly every day, i will also post random posts with tips and info. I will use followliker for automation.

    You can all ask questions about instagram, pinterest and followliker, proxies etc.. I have decent experience on all of them and know some stuff, im here to help!

    1. I use 1 proxy per account, it's probably possible to use more accounts per proxy but in my opinion there is no point. If you use two accounts per proxy you can't follow that much per day.

    2. I am following between 400 - 1000 per day. 400 when i feel like i should be on the safe side and 1000 when i get impatient and want more followers.

    Thanks!

    I have spent 2 years on instagram and around 2 months on pinterest. However i do have bigger and more accounts on instgram so in total on instagram i have around 1,5 Million right now. But only the accounts i have in this thread i will be botting on and doing this. This is the first time any of these accounts have been using a bot.

    Thanks!

    So you are using 1 proxy for each social account? Is it ok to use 1 proxy for 1 pinterest 1 instagram at the same time?
    I really want to know what is the limit number of activities that you can do per day with pinterest?
    Example: 500 Pin, 500 Unpin, 500 Follow and 300 Un-follow?

    Interesting journey. Hope you make your goal. Are the Pinterest accounts doing any activities besides follow/unfollow? I'm particularly interested in this part of your journey because I'm running a Pinterest campaign myself with a similar amount of accounts.

    It's been a long time since i updated. But i never stopped the journey. Here are my stats for the last 20 days. I added my business account on instagram as well. On instagram i gained almost 145.000 new followers the last 20 days which is great i think. Hoping for 2 million followers in total within the summer.

    On pinterest im having a hard time keeping my follow back ratio higher than 10%. Any one got tips on that?

    Thanks.

    1. Where do you buy pinterest accounts?

    I don't buy them, i make them myself. I only have about 13 - 15 accounts on pinterest and it's not neccesarry to buy the accounts ( It's like giving pinterest an invitation to ban your account after a while. )

    2. How Many follows pers account on pinterest?

    Pinterest limits the amount you can follow to 50.000 per acount. So i follow around 1000 - 2000 users per day, until i reach 50.000 then i unfollow down to 0 again, and start over. That's how it goes.

    3. How much traffic are you getting from your pinterest accounts?

    Well, i don't get alot i get around 150 - 200 visitors from pinterest per day. But i don't run a blog or anything i sell a specific product. So if you do run a blog or something interesting you will get ALOT of traffic from pinterest.

    Thanks.

    My goal is 2 Million on accounts i have for instagram within the summer ( June 30th. ). I have a lot to do as i am running a company as well so there is alot of other stuff to do. If i get 2 million on instagram by the summer im happy with that.

    On pinterest i haven't set a specific goal but i think between 300.000 - 450.000 followers in total by June 30th. I will be satisfied with that to.

    Yeah that's correct. With one proxy i run bot on both pinterest and instagram, as these two platforms are not connected at all and doesn't limit the amount of actions i can do on both of them.

    On pinterest i do about 1000 - 1500 follows per day and 60 repins.

    I am using buffer.com to schedule 60 repins per account per day. Other than that my accounts are only following about 1000 - 1500 a day. I have tried liking as well but i haven't quite figured it out yet.

    So it continues, i am now satisfied with the amount of followers i gained on instagram the last 16 days i only gained around 45.000 new followers the last 16 days, and what i need to gain to reach my goal within summer is 200.000 new followers per month, but ill get there! Im reducing my settings a little bit on Instagram as i have seen alot of people getting banned lately and i run pretty aggressive settings, better to be carefull then to get banned.

    On pinterest i gained pretty much the same amount as on last update. Im having a hard time increasing my followback ratio to higher then 10% but im working on it. My accounts soon has to unfollow 50.000 which is a bummer as it takes a lot of time so i have started creating some new accounts and hopefully in the next month i will be running 30 accounts on pinterest ( High Quality Accounts ).

    Instagram Goal: 2 Million Followers by the summer.
    Pinterest Goal: 500.000 Followers by the summer.

    If you have any question feel free to ask.
