    I just started using instagress on my gf's account. She does a fitness page and has the body to really market herself well. She's already been growing pretty fast naturally (up to 9k from starting out late last year). However, I want to supplement this growth using instagress.

    I started it for her yesterday. In the time it's been running it's liked 407 pics, commented on 121, and followed 272. However, in these first 24 hours or so I haven't really seen a great ROI. It's ran for about 14 hours now and during this time she's gained 155 followers, but most of these are from a picture she posted earlier (actually much less than she's been getting recently, with most pics getting 250-350 followers in 24 hrs as of the last few weeks). Looking through the new followers I estimated maybe 1 out of 4 at best were ones the bot interacted with. That's only maybe 30-40 extra followers.

    My settings are as follows:
    Targeting: tags, likers/followers of usernames
    Speed: Normal
    Filters: media age - 1 day, media type - photos, max likes-100, max comments-20, user profile filter-low, min followers-100, max followers-3000, min following-50, username+tag filter on
    Follower cycles: follow 1000 and unfollow 1000, don't refollow, don't follow private
    Tags: I included a bunch of fitness tags (many of which she uses and also target fit moms or fit girls which is her primary target audience) most ranging between 500k-3m with a few bigger ones. About 30 total.
    Users: Included 10 girls with similar physiques and good followings/interactions ranging from 50k-1m


    My questions are as follows:
    1) Do I just need to wait longer to see a good return? It seems very low so far
    2) What can I change to target better accounts. I feel this might be part of the issue, how can I dial it in better?
    3) Should I up the speed to fast or is that running a likely risk of an account suspension/ban?
    4) Are comments even worthwhile? A lot seem cheesy since it's hard to not make them generic because you never know what a tag might contain
    5) Is there any app that will let me see which users I've gotten from instagress (i.e. the users that shes interacted with) vs the ones that randomly added
    6) Does the username+tag filter have any effect on searching through tags? Like since I have that on will it search through tags AND usernames likers/followers with those tags? Might it be a good idea to turn tags only off?
    7) Should I use smaller accounts in the users section? Or advice with tags? I know some people are getting a ton of followers from this app and so far in my short time using it, it doesn't seem to be paying off. I realize I probably need to wait but still if the follows back count is so low now, I'm not expecting it to drastically raise without making changes.

    Just general advice here but I would recommend if you have the time look into Mass Planner. Its considered the best bot software available right now for many reasons. You will get much better results with Mass planner than Instagress. Also the Instagram version of MP is cheaper in the long run.

    1- You should see somewhat consistent results after the second day.
    2- Just stick to targeting those accounts, it will work well.
    3- Not sure since I use Mass Planner but after warming up an account I restrict it to keep it under 1000 actions(like/follow/unfollow) a day.
    4- Yah ditch comments, its risky and doesn't work to well.
    5- Not sure, its a waste of time in my opinion. With MP I'm able to see the daily changes and how posts affect that.
    6- Bots pull from the accounts and hashtags you provide seperately. I dont believe any filters out an account that doesnt fit both.
    7- Pull from accounts with good engagement, those are the ones that have real active followers which are the ones who you want to follow you. Size usually isnt an issue, just focus on the engagement. Its better to scrape users to interact with from accounts, not hashtags as you have more control over it then.

    SLOW. Around 50 follows and 100 likes daily. Then bump it up by 10 for follows and 20 for likes daily.

    400 and 600 max. Keep it under 1000 actions to stay safe.

    I was wondering if there is any way to easily like back all the people you recently followed pics. I am fine with manually doing this process but ig doesn't make it easy

    I can't tell because your not speaking proper english but if your talking about liking the people you followed there should be a setting in sources that like the pics of people in your feed which = the people you followed. Or if your talking about following a person and liking their recent pictures there is also an option for that
