    Hi Guys

    I got into the Instagram game sometime this year.
    I have one account at 8k (averaging 300 -700 likes per post) - This account is 8 weeks old

    I found out that I had an AGED Instagram account with 40 followers
    I did not have anything posted on it so I decided to grow that account so I could sell shoutouts on it.

    Today is Day 3
    Followers - 401 (and still increasing)
    Following - 1304
    Average likes - 30 - 50 likes
    Comments are rare for whatever reason

    I'm currently just following and liking - nothing else
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    Starting Day 4 [email protected] 526
    There is something I noticed, I have a lot of "big" accounts following me .. 20k - 100k thereabouts
    Which I find interesting.

    Likes on each post are between 40-60

    One thing I do differently is that I let my bot run for a day or so..
    Then stop it for one day and let those I followed follow me.
    It works well and it helps keep the account safe

    Are your accounts niche specific?

    Why don't you write any comments?

    Yes they are niche specific
    I usually just start following and unfollowing with likes and then when I get to let's say 1000 followers (in this case) I start commenting

    Ended Day 4 @ 600 Followers (without running the bot)

    I fired up my bot again today, let's see how many followers I get!
