    Hey guys
    I've been growing some instagram accounts for a year now (~70k) and was thinking about expanding (create about 25 more) to try to reach 1-2M followers within the next year.

    The problem is: how to discover the best content to repost?

    I just built some custom feeds (similar insta pages) on iconosquare and then copy to my page the best performing posts. It worked okeyish so far, but given my intentions I need to scale massively which would take me too much time with this method.

    For those instagram gurus out there, what are your methods, how do you do it? How do you discover your content?
    Any tip or suggestion would be highly appreciated!

    Still just starting out but here is what I do for my accounts:
    - have a VA manually find & collect accounts with large following in the niche I will be targeting
    - all of these account are then saved in a CSV file
    - a custom built script then scrapes accounts from the csv & outputs top performing posts
    normally I set to collect top 5 posts of the user.

    If the list of users is 100 accounts - that's 500 posts.

    So within a day I have over a year worth of posts for the specific niche that I can schedule in for the account.

    All that's left to do is to add the captions & schedule the posts.

    At the moment most time/resource intensive step is actually writing engaging captions & scheduling the posts.

    You should take a look at high-authority accounts in your niche with high engagement rates. They are doing things right and re-posting this should be successful.

    Thanks for your reply @chillfrog !
    Did you build the script yourself? Or can recommend someone who can build one? And how much would it cost?

    I hired a guy on upwork to do it. Just posted a job there with requirements. Charged me two hundred bucks.

    I'm too new to be able to send you a PM, but do you happen to have his name? I'd be interested
