    I wanted to start this thread to share my journey so far on Instagram. I'm going to share a lot of my specific settings and whatnot, so that it might help people looking to grow their pages. I'm hoping to get some constructive feedback, too. Hopefully it can spark some interesting discussion.

    I currently run a pair of Instagram accounts in the Outdoors niche and I've just recently started using Follow Liker to expedite their growth (and it definitely has). Both accounts were "warmed up" to around 2,000 followers each. Here's the progression of my follower count since I started with FL:

    As you can see I'm getting around 150 new followers each day. My post frequency is around 5-7 posts each week. Here are the settings I'm using to attain my current results:

    Account #1:

    Account #2:

    I'm scraping photos with relevant hashtags and users who post with relevant hashtags or follow accounts similar to my niche.

    Account #1 is getting around 250-500 likes each post.
    Account #2 is consistently fetching around 250-300 likes on each post.
    Pretty decent engagement numbers, imo.

    My goal is 100,000 total followers between the two accounts by this winter. I'm not 100% sure what I'll do to monetize yet, but for now, I'm just focused on growing my numbers. I'm also interested in adding another account, but I really don't really want to purchase a proxy until I'm bringing in some revenue from my other accounts.


    Hopefully some of these numbers will help people who are new to this.

    Now for those of you who have been doing this for a lot longer than me, I've got a few questions:

    1. How would you guys suggest I tweak my FL settings? Are my current settings aggressive or conservative overall?
    2. Can I start a botting a 3rd account without getting a proxy or is that pretty risky?

    1. My settings are like yours ( Account #1)
    2. Go for it. I'm currently botting 3 accounts per proxy, without any issues.

    It really depends, how old are your accounts ?

    How aged are your accounts? 1 month, 3 months, 1 year, etc?

    I believe it's still safe for you to start botting a 3rd account. Just don't be too aggressive with the settings if it's just new. Good luck with the journey!

    You can use 3 accounts on one IP without a problem. Don't worry.
    Btw nice journey :)

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm currently warming up a 3rd account and getting ready to start botting it. I'll update you guys in the future when there's more to tell!
