    Hey all, relatively new to Black Hat World but I realize this is the perfect place to look for advice.

    I'm looking for advice on an Instagram account I started about a week ago that I am looking to monetize in the future. I had no idea how to market an instagram account but did a bit of research and was able to achieve these statistics in a little over a week:

    Followers: 1111
    Following: 467
    Likes per picture: 50-100
    Comments per picture: 2-3

    I'm looking for advice on how to maximize the amount of followers I'm receiving per day. The past few days I've been averaging around 80 followers per day but I know there are ways that number can be bigger. I have been manually liking and commenting on pictures in my niche, following/unfollowing to gain the amount of followers I have now.

    So, should i automize my follows/unfollows and likes? Would that maximize my engagement and amount of followers I attain? The only worry (and it's a big one) I have with automizing the process is being banned.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I put it the amount of people I am following

    Using a bot will not automatically yield big on gain. It only takes the place of your hands from manually interactiving with other users. The gain depends on how creative you are targeting your audiences.

    Your 1st step is to invest in a bot.

    Most of the cracked versions I found are filled with virus. Can you pm me a link to the cracked version?

    Don't use any bot, they will catch you soon or later.
    Research your content and post high quality photos which your competitors don't have.
    Be original and creative.

    what a bunch of bull-crap!

    i gain about 200 followers a day by using a bot, and i don't see why Instagram would ban my accounts.
    (going strong for 2 months so far)

    op, use the follow back method.

    follow a bunch of people from a popular account in your niche
    and use a bot to automate the process.

    i personally recommend follow liker.

    Try to do manually follow/unfollow/like till 5k-8k follower before you get a bot, just be safe. Will take you a month (depends on the nishe u in)!
    Post high quality pics at least 1x day!

    How many people are u following per hour/daily?

    I definitely suggest using a bot. There is always a chance of accounts getting banned, but as long as you don't go crazy with the settings and make smart decisions you will be fine.

    Since you asked, you can try ours. We don't have any complainants of any bans. This is because our software uses third party applications to run. You would just get blocked by the third party application and not IG, if you where using the software with delay settings that are far to fast.

    Doing things manually does work but what if you want to scale? You can only do this by running a bot unless you have a ton of money to buy established accounts.
