    Hi all,

    If i have a budget of say 500USD a month, what would be the fastest way to grow a 2-year old instagram account?

    I'm already running mass planner and it's now growing at a rate of 80~100 new followers a day using f/uf and targeted liking method

    My niche is portrait and fashion photography.
    Example of huge accounts that represent my niche is
    @portraitvision
    @portraitmood
    @portraitfestival etc

    My 2year old account now has less than 1000 followers (i only started using mass planner two days ago, its giving me better progress. 80-100 new followers each day. Previously i have tried instagress but it's giving me only 30+ new followers daily. MASS PLANNER is more effective)

    My specific questions

    1) how fast can i grow without risks getting banned ? As mentioned, it's a 2 year old account, but under used because i was stuck in China (no good access to instagram within china)
    Using socialblade, i see some of the big accounts growing at a rate of 500-800 new followers daily
    Is it possible to get close to that kind of growth rate soon ?

    2) will paying for shoutout help? I'v enquired a few of the big accounts, who are charging 25~40USD per shoutout?

    3) participating in engagement groups. Most engagement groups i see expect participants to find more than 10k followers
    do i need to grow to 10k first ?
    Is there any way i could pay to get the bigger accounts to let a smaller Player like me join the rounds sooner?

    Pay someone who has a growth network to like your photos and help the hit explore . Or search for some people to pay for powerlikes

    Personally I wouldn't be growing 1 account at a time with a $500 per month budget, I would be growing at minimum 50 accounts per month, and building my own Shoutout network, then using that backgroud to grow that main account and gaining profit by selling SOs, then reinvesting that profit into that main niche account in thr form of paying those massive pages in the Niche for SOs

    If you are in any of the telegram group markets just ask for someone with a growth network .

    Power likes. No ifs, and or buts. I grew a brand new account to 2k a day in a couple of days just power liking with my 800k account. DM or email big accounts in your niche and see what they offer. It works far better with NEW accounts though, so make a new account if you can, and transfer photos from your old account to your new one if you want to use them.

    No offense intended, but that method seems so complicated and a waste of time just to grow one big account, when you can get hundreds or thousands daily from paying a single big account or two for power likes that cost max $100 a week (usually).

    None taken, We just both have 2 different philosophies on how to grow. As simple as the Power liking is and sounds, I just prefer to build multiple assets at once.

    I'm new to this forum as i tried to PM you, i couldn't find any link or option to do so as i click on your profile.

    this is also the first time i hear of powerliking, i'm going to research on this term right now. are they more effective than shoutouts?

    Hey mate!

    It seems that you know a lot about the powerlikes concept and I was wondering if I could pick your brain a little bit about the topic.

    What size user would be considered a powerlike and how many would you need within your niche to start showing up on larger feeds?

    Also what's the reason for powerlikes being better for newer accounts over older? Lets say I have a 1 year old account that has had 1 post vs just creating a brand new one, is it much better to put the photos on the brand new one and get a couple of powerlikes even though general follower progress through MassPlanner will be slower as you have to warm up the account?

    And one last question, when asking a larger account to like your content, how do you go about phrasing that and how much would you usually pay?

    Thanks!

    I have an account with 40k follower. I grew one to 150k followers. The fastest way is not easy... you need to follow, like (infamous users pictures), reply, comment. bottom line you have to be engaged in the community. and have consistency in your account/theme. Post every 3-4 hours. But post periodically. one picture a day is not enough.

    a few resona depending on projects.
    -gaining a more diverse audience
    -grow a larger audience faster
    -pages can be quite specific so more pages allow you to focus on different subjects
    -could be for churn and burn methods
    -growing a private network in order to grow your main accounts faster
    -selling crap.

    and a few more but im lazy to go more indepth.

    i have sent you a DM on IG, talk to you later when it's daytime at your end.


    Regarding powerlikes, i found that the big accounts on my niche - portrait / portraiture , they haven't heard of the term powerliking, they only do shoutouts.

    maybe it's a new technique that just gained traction and is only avail with generic networks?

    Sounds really reasonsable. Can I ask, is this your current tactic/ strategy or at which point of the plan are you? Would be really nice & helpful to hear your experience - either success or obstacles with that strategy. Thank you

    Why do you think Power likes work better for newer accounts? And isn't there are danger of risking both accounts if your big account makes often SOs for your small account with the same account? I didnt have the experience with bans (as I am new to IG & small), just heard about it. So, just wanna hear your opinion as you have a really big account... :)

    No question, just wanted to mention that your input is ALWAYS really helpful. Thank you for all the advices you gave and are giving here to the community :)

    The bigger, the better. Over 500k is best. Old accounts very rarely get on explore as @Gor said. Make a new account if your tiny account is a year old, and transfer your content over. Will work a lot better.

    As for approaching pages, just ask them if they offer power likes.
