    Hello everyone, i recently started getting into social media and found Instagram to be a very interesting platform with great opportunities. I've decided to invest some time and money in growing three accounts, in different niches. I'm currently using MassPlanner for liking and following/unfollowing.

    Here are my current account stats as of starting my journey. 04.17-2016



    Account 1 - Started 04.13-2016 Account 2 Started 04.12-2016 Account 3 Started 11.24-2012
    Followers 270 125 132
    Posts 15 6 13










    Here are my current MP settings, they could probably use some optimization.

    Night mode between 00:00 and 5:30am

    Account 1:
    • 250 follows per day - 30 minute interval - 20 follows per operation
    • 350 likes per day - 30 minute interval - 30 likes per operation

    Account 2:

    • 450 follows per day - 30 minute interval - 30 follows per operation
    • 500 likes per day - 35 minute interval - 40 likes per operation

    Account 3:

    • 250 follows per day- 30 minute interval - 20 follows per operation
    • 350 likes per day - 30 minute interval - 30 likes per operation


    Ill be updating this thread daily with my progress, please, feel free to give me suggestions on how i can improve my setup.

    Good luck! I started an instagram account yesterday. Doing things manually as of now but might invest in a program like massplanner in the future. 14 followers currently.
    Consistency is key!

    Thanks! Without going into too much detail, i have one fitness niche, one other girl niche that is pretty unsaturated (account 1) and one food related account.

    Per day, how many time you follow per day? I heard, there is a limitation to follow?

    I'm playing around with the limits myself as two of my accounts are only 4-5 days old. Currently i follow 20-30 people at a time with 30 minutes in between each operation. On my older account i have the tresholds set a bit higher.

    If you're interested we could potentially help each other out, share niches / shoutouts in the future?

    Hi everyone, today has been an interesting day!

    After work today i got home and decided that one of my accounts had a niche that simply wasn't going to generate a good amount of interest, so i deleted everything from the account and changed it to a different, more popular niche. The other two accounts are growing nicely, and the recently changed account gained a good amount of followers after i posted a couple new photos. Today i also upped the amount of follows and likes my accounts do. Account 3 (the aged account) is now set to follow 700 accounts per day and like 800 pictures per day. The two new accounts are set to follow 400 and like 500. I increased the wait time between all operations to 30-90 minutes, to better simulate how a human would use Instagram (no one sits on instagram and likes pictures every 15 minutes all day). Overall a very good day, i'll now keep the accounts at their current scalings for 5 days or so, and if they haven't been banned by then i'll consider upping the values further. If the next couple days go smoothly i'll be hitting 1k followers on account 1, which will be an exiting milestone! :)

    Another great day! I'm seeing some really nice growth on all three accounts. My account #3 got hit with a PW reset today, but no restrictions or anything else. I'll keep running on these settings untill next week.
