    Not really going to be too much information here. Just amount of pictures posted, followers/following gains.

    I don't plan on monetization for a long time, but I do have a few ideas for one of my accounts.

    Account 1 - 515 Following 91 Followers 24 pictures
    Account 2 - 60 Following 14 Followers 11 pictures

    Account 1 is about 2 days old.
    Account 2 was made today.

    I'm aiming to hit 1,000 followers on each within 2 weeks. Probably a little slow(?) but still getting used to IG.

    EDIT: I did buy a couple thousands likes on one picture just to see if it would help with anything, it didn't. Maybe if the picture was newer it would. At this point it was 11hrs old.

    Just keep doing it, and you should hit 1k followers in a week, depending on how much you follow per day and your niche.
    Good luck

    Thanks, I'm only trying to follow 250 per day on each account for the first few days. In a couple of days I will bump it up to 500 per day I think.

    Still trying to optimize who to follow in Follow Liker.

    edit : OK, So... account #1 was blocked/banned

    I'm a bit gutted that account got banned... It had great interaction and was actually a niche I enjoyed compared to account 2.

    Oh well. Time for bed. Hopefully my other account will be there when I wake up hah.

    Ending the day with

    321 following 33 followers 13 pictures.

    I think the reason account 1 had more followers was because I was actually doing a fair amount of it manually. Account 2 is 100% botted, no commenting or liking.

    What exactly do you think caused your main to get banned? Were you too aggressive or was it something else?

    Honestly?

    No idea. Maybe too aggressive as the account was 3 days old? But I was only following 250 per day 45s delay.

    I'm still learning the settings on the bot.

    We don't really suggest to use bots on fresh/new accounts. Maybe that's the reason why your account got banned.

    That's what I was thinking ti was. I've stopped botting on account 2. I'm just going to stick to a week or so of just posting pictures and manually following people who like my pictures for now.

    I'll see how it goes.

    Been going slowly. I've been finding just liking pictures rather than follow/unfollow is gaining me more followers.

    104 followers 500 following 19 pictures

    Like I said going slow as my first account got banned.

    if you're only managing two accounts then why are you using a bot? it's much much easy to manage these two accounts manually. Manually you're less likely to be banned this quick. i create new fresh account and manually follow 800-900 the first day and nothing happens. Manual is good if you aren't managing a shit load of accounts. Yes, manual takes time but it gives you much better results.

    I did say in a previous post I've stopped botting.

    But still. Even when just using one account I'm sure botting would save my time as I cannot be on my IG account all the time hah.

    For now though I have stopped botting.

    Quick update.

    I have been growing this account slowly for the last couple of weeks.

    It just hit 1000 followers with 2600 following. Is this a decent follow back ratio?

    I've been doing it manually right now.

    Since your account is pretty new thats a good ratio. Obviously it depends on your niche and the quality of pictures as well. This ratio will change the bigger you grow.
    Congratz on your first 1K followers though !

    Thanks guys.

    Been following slowly for now, maybe 50-100 per day.

    Will ramp it up in another week or so to 150-250.
