    I bought a bot before and i couldn't use it to its full functionality cos wasn't using a VPS and cos 5 of my accounts where banned, maybe my settings was a bit harsh... so i started using the manual method, follow4follow on my personal account and within a month i got 8k followers and averagely 400+ likes per pic, so i created 3 accounts on different niches now following manually a bit hectic tho but i get at least 200+ followers daily... looking to add more accounts as time goes... so am looking at automating this process, should i? to be on a safer side or i should just continue with the manual method, yea also checking out instagress out too... i read about people accounts getting banned using FL dont wanna be axed by IG on my accounts...

    doing it manually will get you better results for sure, since you can interact way better with your followers than using a bot.

    the only time you should think about buying a bot is

    1. if you don't wanna lose time doing that lame follow/unfollowing process
    2. if you wanna scale it up to way more accounts

    If time ain't a problem for you, go manual.

    I think that you should wait until you have 30 accounts with around 30 000 Followers and then maybe go for automation.

    well, I'd rather recommend botting your way up and then try to organically grow once you reach a higher amount of followers. Wouldn't risk any big account through automation services, but everyone has a different opinion on this. : )

    Keep it manual, I'm currently doing a manual journey (you can check my thread). It's the best for engagement and will give better results, you just need to work more.

    (Only reason you would invest in bots is if you are willing to use a lot of accounts).

    Best Regards,

    The follow/unfollowing process gives massive interaction and a higher follow back rate than some bots... but the problem is TIME

    Keep one exact number of accounts so that by using BOT you can fix the total number of followers.

    3 accs or 300 a bot cant make the process of building a community way easier. If you do it correctly
