    that's kind of common sense...to avoid being banned just don't do too much in one day...It's actually hard to get banned unless your doing hardcore botting...if your going to bot with many accounts use proxies...you'll get banned easily if too much is happening from one ip.

    Use common sense.

    Don't over follow people
    Don't spam comments
    Do make your bots act like a human
    Do vary up how you follow people.

    By using IG you run the risk of being banned. You never know if you might get caught in a filter, even if you are completely white hat. I have had this happen several times to even on Twitter, to completely white hat accounts.

    Just be smart about it. Take it slow. Build up accounts with the intent of making them long lasting ones and you will be fine.

    Is it okay to make accounts that are kind of like a brand, like XYZPhotos or something along those lines you know or should the main accounts have real names and all?

    The best thing you can do is practice and perfect. Work out what will get you banned, test limits for what you are promoting and then modify your limits if you are getting banned/etc. 90% of the time the scenario will be different, so modify for your own and test your own.
