    Okay, well it's time for me to finally start Instagram business for real. I've been working an incredible amount this summer at my part-time job and I've decided to work only a few more days. The rest of the time that I'm not working out or sleeping.. I shall devote fully to IG. School starts up again in a month. I want to be able to double my followers in 30 days or less. Right now, I have 26,500 followers on my main account. This journey is only dedicated to this one account. I of course shall keep Followliker and Igerslike going for my other 7 accounts (which aren't doing too bad either, one's going to hit 25K tonight and the rest aren't far behind. I've sold a few larger accounts in the past before), and also now I'm going to add an extra 100 accounts in a specific niche. (If you're interested in this, I can make another journey about that later on) But those I only care about getting to 2-3K within 4 weeks. For this journey, I shall use the bot to unfollow during the daytime, when I can manually follow a bunch of people, and at night-time I shall use it to follow. I have made sure for the past year to prepare myself as best as possible for this summer. It's only halfway done so far and I want to create a steady income by the end. I'm happy to say that I've removed almost all distractions from my life. No more video games, no more girls, no more tv, I rarely use the computer for entertainment purposes such as YT videos or music, and no vacations. It's time to go on a path to progression. For the past few weeks I've been learning a lot about Instagram, and I've only been here for a relatively short time. The niche is humor/relatable posts. Seeing as there's only a few hours left of today, I'll make it Day 0. I shall most likely hit 27,000 tonight, so the goal will be 54,000+. I haven't monetized this account, nor do I plan to until it hits 100K. The steady income I was talking about earlier is related to another account (the one going to hit 25K) which is in a specific niche which I plan to monetize once it hits 40K-50K+. I shall update tomorrow night, after work. After tomorrow, I will have only 3-4 more days of work left for the entire summer :)

    One question OP: Did I misunderstand something or you unfollow with the bot AND follow manually at the same time on the same account?

    Anyways good luck with your journey!

    A year ago, I was able to double my followers (around 40k at the time - humour niche as well) in a span of 2 weeks. I've used multiple methods to gain followers and my page went semi-viral. Unfortunately, those methods don't work anymore.

    I know things have changed since then but I'm sure it's still possible.

    Good luck.

    I do both at the same time. The reason I decided to go ahead with this, even though I know it increases risks of being potentially banned, is that so far I've been doing this ever since I began (using phone + FL at the same time) and all's been well with this main account and a few of my other larger ones. I do however think there'll be a point in time where I will use FL only for a few hours daily and then shut it off for my accounts over 100K, just in case. (Right now it's running 24/7) Plus hopefully I'll start seeing good natural growth. (500+ a day is good in my opinion)

    DAY 1:

    26,907 followers. So I do have less followers than I thought I'd have, (Somewhere around 27.2-27.3K) but it's alright. The reason for this is I left the bot unfollowing for a good amount today, and when it finished unfollowing it kind of sat around and did nothing for hours. I barely posted today, and like I said, it was because of work. I'm glad I finished a 10.5 hour shift finally. Tomorrow I shall have a free day and hope to make up for any potential progress lost today.

    Good news is my other account made me smile, seeing as it did reach what I predicted (25K last night) and is now at 25.1K :) I feel tomorrow will be a great day for my main.

    Good night guys.

    Can you share your settings with us? I'm only getting about 75-100 followers a day. I just reached 3k followers, getting about 200-300 likes per picture. This growth is too slow.
    When I was using ninjagram, i was gaining 300+ followers a day. But it can't rotate like followliker can.

    What does rotate mean? How many do you follow per day?

    Can't shuffle tasks, sorry mate. 500-600 follows per day, I increased it to 700-800 for now but not much difference.

    I never use the likes/comments feature with FL on any of my accounts. This is for the sole reason that it might help a tiny bit, but in my opinion that tiny bit isn't worth the time it takes up and the added risks. My unfollow specs for my main are quite high compared to my other accounts, but I don't get captchas ever and it seems to work quite well: FL does the task every 5 minutes, 1500-1600 every 10-12 seconds.
    When I set it to follow: 1300-1400 every 10-14 seconds.

    Manually, I'm not quite sure how many but I'm guessing w/ FL + Manual I follow anywhere from 1500-2000 if I don't have work.

    If you just space it out well within 24 hours it's quite possible.

    I used to do 2000 or more a day a while back. It's perfectly fine as long as you have an older account or if you're a newer account, just work your way up there.

    DAY 2:

    27,214 followers. Posted quite a bit today and progress was decent, but nothing too amazing since my acc got temp. banned earlier today for a few hours. I was just testing some limits, but no worries. Within the next few days I plan to message all accounts in my niche between 25-30K followers for SO4SO, so hopefully that gets the ball rolling towards large natural growth.

    And most of my accounts are 2-3 months old, around the time I started getting more interested in Instagram, but this main one is I think over half a year old. It was stuck at a few thousand followers for a few months and I never cared about it much, sometimes posting once every 2 weeks. This changed when I created more accounts, and it quickly went to over 10K+ after following/unfollowing and posting daily. :)

    Could you share about how you find ALL accounts in a specific niche in a specific range of followers ? Thank you.

    My bad. Maybe not all. It's just in my niche, there's a bunch of accounts. It's pretty easy to find right off the bat 20-30 within the specified range of followers. I'm guessing there's at least a couple hundred out there though if you look a bit harder.
