    I've just reached 100K on Instagram! Yes, it's a cause to celebrate, but I am just a bit too concerned and I need to pick your brains really quickly.

    It took me a while to get here, and I did so by using a bunch of accounts to comment/tag and promote my main 100K acc via niche hashtags.
    The interaction on my 100k acc is outrageous. I get up to 4.5K likes and 250 comments per each post on average. I have never posted anything sponsored and my complimentary website is just under development. But, I am so overly consumed with the thought that if I continue automation, one day, I might get reported so many times, that IG would finally ban my main acc.

    How do I know when to stop? My main page is very professional. I have never put it on automation to like, comment or follow anyone. Over the course of my journey, I have only received three user complains that if I don't stop tagging them, they'll report me. Considering the amount of people my accounts are already tagging per day, that's a good thing, right? But again, some people, might just report you without a warning. No?
    1. Could IG ban my main account even if it isn't the one doing the automation?
    2. Does IG check accounts before they ban them (i.e. If I get reported a bunch of times, would the system automatically ban me, or do they manually check to see that the account in question is indeed being abusive and needs to be banned?)
    3. What's the most followers you've reached using my method, and at what point did you stop automating?
    4. Also, Has anyone lost a big account just by using my method and without any other violation?

    Too many questions. Please bear with me.

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    OP -- great questions, unfortunately I don't think anyone is going to give you clear cut answers considering nobody actually knows for certain. It's fair to say that your results are indicative of a proper approach. It's very difficult to attain 100k followers while taking an approach that exposes you to violations.

    I guess you got at least 280k more followers to go before you get banned (assuming no change to IG policy) by simply comparing your account to vinesbelike.. who is probably the most aggro user of your technique. GL

    I am using same method for about a week and want to ask you just to compare with my results:
    1. How much fake accs you use to promote your main?
    2. How much comments daily you post per fake acc?
    3. How much time you needed to get it to 100k ?

    Also would like to know what kind of comments you use when you're posting comments? Is that like just @yourmain or you post some long spinned comments? Asking them to follow or just "check out this page"?

    I'm currently running 5 fake accs on bot and posting up to 1100-1200 comments per day/per acc, getting 900-1200 followers from it daily.

    It's very nice to meet some guys who are interested in Instagram marketing since I started some days ago by buying a 14k account for 15€ (≈20$). I am also thinking about automating the processes since I learned few things from facebook marketing.

    Which ways of automating do you all use? What is important to maximize the new followers per day?
    Is anyone interested in sharing experiences? Unfortunately my page has german follower so that shoutout for shoutout is hardly possible.

    Hi; owner of VinesBeLike here. I used to use that method until Instagram sent me an email saying if I didn't stop they would ban the account. So I immediately quit. Hopefully you will get an email like I did before it happens, but I must warn you that you are treading on very dangerous ground. If y'all want some great methods that do work just send me a PM and I'll tell you what I'm doing!

    Well your lucky VinesBeLike. I was doing this method on my account up unitl 30K using 15 accounts, and I didn't even get an email. They just banned my account completely. I think after 100K you have enough followers and influence to warn most likely. Regardless I stopped using that method. I'm interested in new ideas though that don't get me banned. Any one?

    I think with 100k you have enough followers to stop botting. Now you can grow organically and by doing some S4S with other big accounts.
    I would stop botting if I was you because you can obviously get banned

    I'm nowhere near that mark, but started to doing this method. I am interested on how the op is posting his comments to photos.

    I remembered when I first getting into boting, I noticed comments from other would just have a '@username'. I didn't know what that meant as a comment point a view, than realize later it is method for anyone to click on that link and maybe follow. I haven't seen such comment lately. Wondered if those accounts had been deleted by IG or they just stopped commenting this way.
