    Hey guys! I recently got FollowLiker so I am definitely new to it. Recently, I am building an IG account. Within two days of using the bot, I have accumulated ~61 followers while following 600. I know this follow back rate is bad, is there anything I can do to increase this? Under scrape user, for the queries, I have relevant niche related users (around 1.3million followers). Should I target accounts with less followers in the same niche?

    Edit: Anyone willing to help me out with my FL settings too?

    Thanks alot guys!

    Instead of just following the followers of big accounts in your niche, follow people who liked or commented on their pictures. These are the people that are willing to engage and are more likely to engage with your account if they follow you back.

    This is what I've been doing as well. I take the photos from a of the big accounts (recent posted pictures), and for query I put "users commented". Any suggestions? Perhaps my settings are wrong?

    My account is about 3 days old by the way, current stats are 90 followers and ~730 following. I gained about 20 followers after I turned the bot off at night.

    You followed 700+ people in three days? Dude. Stop whatever you're doing. You will get banned if you do mass follow on a new account. Don't follow more than 100 people the first week. I can't post links yet, so I'll just quote the settings I posted on a different thread. Just follow the settings below and you'll be good.


    One final thing. Don't worry about follow back ratio when your account is just a few days old. Give it a few weeks. It will grow eventually.

    exactly! Great strategy that works well. Also remember that quality is much more important than quantity.

    I think I have been doing this. The only way to do this is by getting the PHOTO ID and use the query "USER'S WHO COMMENTED" right? Is there another way to follow users who commented on "username's" photo's? I use "scrape only top result" as well.

    Lastly thanks for the tips. I'll adjust my settings to not follow so much and keep you guys updated!

    i follow persons which liked something and the follow back rate is max about 10% ...... so i consider the thread openers follow back quite ok.
