    Hey, guys.

    Been thinking lately of what is better to do when raising a fresh new account: do a period of organic growth with 'good' manual activity or start botting it from the start (with all usual precautions, cooldown period, proxies etc.)

    The main question is if initial period of dedicated 'hand-made' activity increases conversion and let you grow quicker? I never bothered and botted mine accounts straight away, so can't compare. Anyone got experience in both ways?

    You should start your account without a bot. it will get your engagement right. then once you gain a following i suggest you bot it. its a lot easier with Followliker but doing it manually from the start would probably be worth it in the end. i started my account from 0 followers and grew it in 2 months to 30k manually. i used followliker to unfollow all of the followings and my pictures get 2k-6k likes. start out manually until you have some fans.

    Thanks!

    Do you have another account you did not grow manually - to compare? Because my results without 'manual mode' are also quite good, so I'm looking for smby who tried both ways..)

    I have done both. I do not have time during the day to work on growing instagrams. So I grow my accounts with followliker mate.

    That's the same reason why I go botting mine accounts from the start.

    So what's your feeling than? Is it worth starting in manual mode? Were accounts you strarted to grow manually converting better than those you botted only?

    Always start manual first, you can get traffic/sales doing that, it will give you indication of the traffic there.

    I second this! Always start manually, it works the best when it comes to your ROI (return on investment).

    From experience, i think building an account manually works better.

    I won't trust an Instagram account with 20k followers and no likes, it smells fake from 50 miles away. Just follow SimplyLiving's advice. I think it would help you go a long way.

    Do you mind if I ask what niche? (Reply on PM if you thinks it's better).

    Thank you.
