    Hey everyone, I'm still relatively new to the site, but I wanted to share my journey. I started a new account and my niche is photography and graphics, and I just want to drive more traffic to my work and all.

    Tools Using.

    FollowLiker
    Shoutouts.


    I'll keep everyone updated!

    My starting Point Is 10799386_10154873473285611_429259490_n.jpg

    The Followers I have already are friends and family who follow my work from my fan page as well. :D

    So it's been a day since I made the post. Been using FollowLiker, And after a day I'm up from 666 Followers to 818. So that's 152 Followers in a day...not much, I know over time it'll get faster. I also found a few shoutout pages that are my niche so going to purchase one and see how that goes as well. I decided to Run Followliker during the day, and then instagress at night for a slower process to keep things going, we shall see how that goes as well.

    So it's been 3 days, my following is up from 818 to 1226. My average like per photo has gone from an average of 50 to an average of 140, loving the ratio of followers to likes right now. So I gained 560 Followers in 4 1/2 days. I used a shoutout twice, that brought me 70 followers between the two of them.

    So having a slightly slower day, thinking I want to change it up a bit. I've never been a fan of the following unfollowing method, so I may just do automated likes and shoutouts. My current following is 1344 so gained 118 New followers which is awesome, that's just with the automated likes, and the likes average increased to about 150ish now.

    Here's some advice for when you get to grips with any social sites spam filter, SCALE UP!

    You own followliker? why not sit down and create 50 accounts worth of pictures in your niche, 50 accounts x 200 photos= 10,000 photos and have them nicely organised in named files.

    Buy a 50 IP address monthly package from a seller from here, then do want you are doing with each of the 50 accounts. You are gaining what 100+ followers a day times that by 50 an you've made yourself 5000 followers a day.

    Then the next step is to have a target for each account lets say 2 or 3 months that could be a combined total of 350,000 to 600,000 follower spread over your accounts with all of these accounts like, comment and do shoutouts for your main account.

    Thanks for the tips, I've honestly didn't think of that one, so you're saying upload about 200 photos per account saying like 4 a day at a time all 50 in the photography and graphic design stuff, and eventually when it's built up to a nice following, just shoutout my page correct?

    So it's been a day and a half since the last update, haven't decided which direction I really want to pursue yet, but still getting a good following. Followers have gone from 1344 to 1634 so gained 290 in half a day without mass following, and only mass commenting and liking as well. I also was able to book 4 different jobs from it, so made just over $250 in the past 2 days which is awesome. I just hate mass following, but it seems like it's the only way to bring tons of traffic. Any advice on that?

    hello and thanks for sharing. one question which may sound stupid: I was reading another thread where the poster was also using FOLLOWLIKER and he said that INSTAGRAM had limited FOLLOWLIKER to comment only 10 times per day? are you experiencing any limits as to what FOLLOWLIKER can and cant do on INSTAGRAM? thank you and good luck.

    I probably do a few shoutouts within my niche, but it mostly will be contest and give aways and stuff like that, plus I know that will drive traffic to my websites and youtube accounts as well. It's also a personal goal as well.

    No question is a stupid question. And no so far I've been able to comment, I usually stick to under 300 comments, I play it really safe I guess with followliker and use the minimums because I would hate to get banned, but I haven't ran into any limits as of yet. And thanks!
