    I've just hopped on the instagram bandwagon about 2~3 months ago and bought myself an instagram bot.

    I have been actively posting good content relevant to my the niche I am targetting every day while I am using the bot. Previously I was doing follow/unfollow and found that it isn't as effective as I imagined it to be, or maybe I am not doing it right. So I only do photo liking for now. As for commenting, I dare not venture into that yet as I see that it's quite risky.

    I would like to know what are the ways that I can grow my account follower count apart from the photo liking? Your advices are very much appreciated!

    If you aren't using ALL of the features you aren't maximizing your efforts.. I would rethink the decision not to use commenting. Even if you do it manually, some comments are better than none. I don't believe your followers will be very engaged and will probably end up only liking your pictures (returning the favor)...

    You have a valid point. I do manually comment occasionally, but that's pretty much what I do as far as commenting is concerned. I have not used the auto commenting feature yet because not all photos are of the same thing ( if you get what I mean ). That said, I will spend more time commenting on their photos . Thank you for the advice!

    you can try buying some real looking followers to look more legit/authority, people more likely tend to follow back an account with a few thousand followers than if you only have a few
    i don't think you should stop following and unfollowing entirely, at least when i last used ig, it was the best way to get followers, there was an exploit and one of the public bot used that, with the click of a button you were able to follow the max limit 7k in a matter of seconds, maybe even a minute :)
    followback ratio was pretty awesome, anywhere between from 1:2 to 1:6
    you can imagine the "damage" it caused, even if you used only a few accs, you were able to accumulate a few ten thousand new followers each day, yea, they were untargeted, so what?! everybody wants an iphone, no? lol
    i'm not into ig anymore, i'm just writing this, because i don't think that this changed much (safe limits has changed for sure), but if you follow people, some of them will surely follow back, still better than nothing
    also there are followback tags, maybe use those too when following, at least until you have a bigger follower base and you can start targeting your niche with greater success

    as far as the commenting goes, i've never submitted a single comment with any bot, not even by hand, so i can't comment on that
    but if you want to look as legit as possible, your acc needs comments too and i think what you do now - manual commenting - serves this purpose well

    Auto Commenting - I definitely wouldn't recommend this in any form. If your goal is to build a somewhat authentic/dedicated following, in my experience I've found that this method only serves to tick people off. They can smell it from a mile away. Manual commenting, i think, is the best way to go on Instagram.

    Auto follow/unfollow - KEEP doing this! Definitely the best way to get more followers. If your page is good enough, and you target a niche community using the right keywords, TRUST me, you can build an extremely active page this way with time and patience.

    Auto like - Definitely keep doing this at the same time as auto follow/unfollow. People will really think that you are liking their content, and they will usually return the favor as well as check out what your page is about.

    Thank you all for your replies and advices.

    I still continue with the auto liking. I haven't got to try out follow/unfollow yet, will probably get to that soon.

    One thing thats new is that I have begin to manually comment on 30 pictures of my target niche a day. Results are good, people usually engage with me in return and they end up following me.
