    Hey all,
    (english is not my native language, but i give my best to write as correctly as possible)
    i decided to take my private Instagram account to the next level and would love to document it here. Maybe i can get some advice from you guys.



    First of all: the current status.

    Follower: 290
    Posts: 31
    Age: My Account is already about one year old but have only been used on private purpose.
    Nothing special about that.



    How do I want to approach it?

    Honestly, I have no idea. I am a total noob in social media. But after a few hours of reading threads out of this forum I made a plan:

    Posts:
    Quality: High
    Content: Niche (+ now and then about my life? Just for the personal touch?)
    Frequency: Once or twice a day.
    Hashtag: ~15 per Post. 2 or 3 are variable and depending on the post,
    the rest ist always the same and some of the most famous hashtags according to "TagsForLike"
    Timing: Randome.

    To increase my followers I also use Instagress with following settings:

    What: Like, Follow, Unfollow
    Speed: Medium
    Hours/day: Random between 5 and 7 hrs. daily (max. 210 likes, 140 follows and 105 unfollows per day)
    Source: Hashtags for likes and the most famous accounts of my niche for follows.

    I distribute the active hours between 7 am and 11pm to make sure, that it looks as realistic as possible.



    My questions:

    - Can I like/ follow/ unfollow on a higher rate and a longer period of time per day, without taking risk to get banned?

    - Is it helpful or necessary to post also pictures of my private life, beside my work?
    Pictures of me, while I am "at work"? Is that giving a personal touch or is it disturbing?

    Thank you so much for your time! I am very thankful for every kind of help that you can give me!
    I will try to give you a daily uptade. Never the less I will document the complete journey here. Even when i decide to wuit, I will write it down here and give you my reasons.

    Greetz,
    mg.

    You can do this manually with 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening. Waste to put a bot on it if you don't even exceed the hourly limits for an entire day.

    Thank you guys for your response

    So would you say, that it is safe and necessary to put the Instagress bot on "fast"? Or for more hours than max 7 a day?


    I am sorry, I am giving my best to write in proper english. Sorry if i did not hit your standards.


    I do not do it the same time. whenever i have followed 200 people I start to unfollow 200 people.



    So today is my Day 0. Lets see where we will get till tomorrow.
    Thank you guys.

    Day 1
    Follower: 308 (
    +18)

    I dont know if this is a good start or not. I am happy, but compared to other jouneys it sounds pretty weak.

    Day 2
    Follower: 331 (
    +23).

    Am i right, when I say that
    -I should never follow more people than the amount of accounts that are following me?
    -I need to rest 24hrs between my last follow and first unfollow action?

    Don't compare your journey to the other journeys. Just be patient and keep working on your account.

    With my new accounts, I usually follow until 5-7.5k before I start unfollowing everyone. Once they reach 2-3k followers, I will only follow 2k then start unfollowing again to make sure I have more followers than following. Hope you understand.

    Good luck by the way! :)

    You're saying in 5 minutes I should be able to Like and Follow 100-200 people each with zero consequences from Instagram? That doesn't raise any flags with IG???
