    Lately, after months of posting consistently and growing my account to 14k, I've now been focusing more on really growing my Instagram. I'm in rounds groups, and done other things too. People recommend MassPlanner, FollowLiker, Rounds Groups, Shoutouts.
    Does anyone have experience with trying each?
    I know there are so many factors from niche, to timing, to how aged your account is etc etc.
    Just trying to get an idea of what to do.
    So far I've realised:
    Content is key when posting, since that's the thing people will be looking at
    Hashtags are useful - using all 30
    Engaging with others in your niche

    Is rounds the way to go? Or only assists you in giving a boost to hit explore? Shoutouts - how do you get shoutouts on a consistent basis? Create a shoutout group?

    My daily average according to socialblade is 35.
    Any advice would be appreciated! Just trying to get some insight

    this cannot trully be awesered by anyone but you. try all techniques and see what you are most comfortable with and gets you the best results. try botting first with massplaner followliker or instagress since everyone has succes with that and its steady. (although be carefull that you dont over do it start with slow settings first)

    for shoutouts and engagement groups try and see if you like it.

    Thanks for the advice :) I'm in engagement groups and have tried them. Haven't seen much results from them but then again not really had anything go 'viral'. I choose what I believe to be viral content (looking on explore page, top of hashtags etc) but get like 600 likes at most.. I used to get that all the time till the update changed engagement. Now I only get that with rounds because of the extra likes and if it's a really cute photo for example. Tried Instagress and others too and that's what helps me grow due to the engagement but only at 35 as my daily average.

    per niche is vary popular and getting just 35 followers a day is very very bad, with the pet niche you can be looking at an easy 80+ followers a day.

    you targeting is the people you target using hashtags and what they are following, you should change that up, use diffrent hashtags (on the bot not in your posts) or try targeting people that follow other accounts in your niche.

    This is a screenshot of my Instagress stuff. For the usernames I put in big accounts so people who are following them. For the hashtags I put stuff like #puppy #huskies etc etc. What should I change exactly? Sorry for all the questions just confused

    Something else that is interesting is I reposted a photo (original account had 6k followers) and got 1k likes. I reposted and it's currently at 300 likes. My engagement has dropped so much lol

    that screenshot doesnt actually tell me anything.

    just try adding other related tags thats your bot interacts with or try setting the speed of the bot a bit faster. are you running the comment function too?

    are you following people based on the tags that they use or on the people they follow?

    I was doing it on fast. It only allows certain limit of likes though. I also have comments disabled because it seems spammy with the "Amazing post", especially if it isn't amazing or is just irrelevant to the post, idk..
    So 25 follows/uf an hour and like 55 likes.

    that seems fine, with comment do go for generic replys such as 'nice' or 'cute' if you can dial in your targeting ust right you can quite specific to other posts and get good reactions.

    but honestly try changing up your settings so you get atleast 50 a day, this is something only you can do.

    Might do the commenting manually so it appears better.
    And I'll do my best, just trying to learn what works and how some people are growing 80k accounts or more kind easily. Like they'll have multiple and know what to do. I wanna learn that lol

    Thanks for your advice :)

    And again, apologies for all the questions, just nice to talk to someone who is doing it. But, is it a good idea to start another account as well as this one and grow that? Even if it's similar/same niche? Or is that pointless if it's similar/same niche?

    im using maspslaner and im doing two projects some are to promote a website im working on, and others will hopefully start making money soon :) and compared to some of the other folk on here 80 is barely anything lol
    nah its fine thats what this forum is for! its definitely a good idea to start more accounts, and if they are in they same niche thats great it allows for cross promotion (self shoutouts) i did the same at first with making more accounts in the same niche and its helped my main account to grom more too. its definitely not pointless and i recommend too start more.

    you can have up too 5 accounts at the same time on your phone, but if you make more than five than you will definitely need to start working with proxies.
    also if you make more accounts consider switching too massplaner (i use this) or followliker as it will be cheaper than instagress.

    start out your new accounts slow though, you dont want to risk getting all the other accounts banned too (i did not have this problem)
