    Recently i have been following many Instagram journeys, about a month ago i setup an instagram account that i will try to grow to 250k followers.I have also setup another account in the last week to try and reach more audience.My plan with the accounts is to link them to a eCommerce website to sell stuff related to my posts.

    I have programmed a bot to follow/unfollow accounts that are following a popular instagram account in the same niche, it follows roughly 740 accounts a day then unfollows 740 but does not run 24/7.I will start posting daily from now on.

    Here are where my accounts are right now:

    Account 1 :
    • 25 posts
    • 2121 followers
    • 4786 following
    • 130 average post likes
    Account 2 :
    • 7 posts
    • 111 followers
    • 235 following
    • 20 average post likes
    I will be updating my stats frequently.

    Good luck OP!

    I would strongly recommend you to stop that follow/unfollow method on account 1 as it will hurt you more in the future

    Keep it up!

    Well the sooner the better, If that's your main income for followers then keep it until you feel that the account can mantain itself or have a natural growth just from content.

    Alternately you could check if your account is shadowbanned (Theres a link to a page there in the forums) So you can see and decide.

    If you're good, Continue to do follow/unfollow with moderation (I think limit is 40 follows per hour but don't quote me on that)

    Not saying this got me a shadowban, but this helped me get rid of it and when I stopped doing it, no more shadowbans happened to me

    Anyway, hope this helps! Good luck

    Im planning on starting facebook ads soon, im going to start with 5 different products and test what ones do the best and scale it from there,

    im just wondering how much i should order of each product, also shipping from Aliexpress will take a while.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.
