Alright, 19K followers account here. Always managed to get 5-10K likes on pictures like one year ago. After a year of inactivity, decided to restart IG because I will be traveling the world soon and while being a financial trader I make money and travel. I want to start growing on IG again but it seems impossible now these days. I post really nice pictures and engagement on them is 100 likes'ish out of the 19K followers ! Is my account restricted in how people see me ? I read that it is hard and you need to engage, so is botting still a good option ? I assume not really .. Are there still accounts out there growing zero to HERO or is that period done forever with blackhat people ? I kind of feel as if it is impossible now to start a good account and grow it.
