    Hey guys,

    So this is my current situation right now: I have an account in the cars niche with 111k followers and for the past I would say 2 months It's only been losing followers and my monthly average is -600 followers and my posts get about 2000 - 2500 likes and only 5 - 10 comments. Here is what happend in the past few months - The whole problem started in December my engagement just got a melt down and my followers dropped A LOT. I mean I was getting about 500 - 600 followers even somedays when my posts go viral I would gain 2000-3000 followers! In January I got fed up with this situation and bought a bot, which I think made it even worse since I started doing a lot of follow/unfollow and liking and also I pretty much went nuts on Telegram groups.

    I am angry mostly, because I grew this account to 100k in about 13 months and now it's basically hit rock bottom. For example in October of 2016 in this one post I get about 25k impressions and the photo gets 5100 likes with 30 comments. (it was a shoutout post as well of a guy that owns a Lambo and he gained 1500 followers from that single shoutout!). Now i posted a photo yesterday and it has 13k impressions with 2500 likes and 5 comments. My tags are the same pretty much..

    And last but not least I am really pissed because for those 12-13 months that I grew it to 100k i worked my ass off everyday - manually everything (following,unfollowing,posting) and was expecting that by now I would reach 200-300k and make a decent amount of money.. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

    Did you check if your posts appear in the search by the hashtags you used?
    Basically you shouldn't use bots after 100k followers as it only hurts your account.

    Yes, they do appear. Yeah It is pretty much common sense to not use a bot after 100k, but the thing is when I started losing followers and my engagement went downhill I was really pissed off and wanted a "quick fix".

    I think the major problem comes from the fact that in general my impressions are low - I used to get around 30k impressions on my post and now i can barely get half of it.

    I noticed this as well. I'm not entirely sure what it is but one of my aged accounts that I started to grow just yesterday, immediately plateaued after posting several images the same day. I was getting 40-90 likes per photo because I had great tags, but then they just stopped and went down to 3-5 likes. I'm guessing Instagram is implementing some new changes to prevent this.

    start a new account, start doing dm likes with 100k+ people and you should be able to grow a new account at a pace you haven't seen before

    Oh, can you explain it a bit? You just DM someone with strong account and ask him to like your picture? Or ?

    Yes exactly like that, if you are 100k you can ask another 100k to share likes.

    That's why you message them with your 111k account, asking them to like your new account and telling them to let you know what you should return with (on your 111k). Only message people around your follower range though, if you message the really big accounts they'll just mutter to themselves that it's not a fair exchange, you're self-entitled and decline your message request.

    I sell and buy accounts on flipmass + it's legit.

    I'd advise stop using the bot, check how competitors are doing? Good or bad and what they're posting. Have you only been engaging with your new followers rather than the ones that were there before it got to 100k? You're smart if you can organically grow an account that size so try not to do anything too hasty ha
