    Hey guys,

    So I make comedy videos on YouTube and am always trying to find ways to promote them. A while ago I realized that a ton of IG users seem to follow back. I thought about it for a while and then realized that I could easily target people who are likely to be interested in comedy videos, by simply opening popular YouTuber's Instagram pages and then following all of the people who liked their most recent picture (that way I know that they are active followers). Anyways, it was working very well but the IG follow limit per hour got annoying (plus I got worried about my account getting banned for following so many people so quickly), so I made 3 more accounts with different variations of my YouTube name. On each of the accounts I (manually) followed about 5,000 people and got around 1,600+ follow backs. Then I posted a picture on each of the accounts telling everyone to follow my main IG account.

    Long story short, over a period of about two months of incredibly tedious work (follow follow follow follow follow follow) I managed to get my main Instagram account up from 150 followers to 6,000 followers and get my number of new subscribers per month on YouTube up from 30 subs a month to about 200. Everything was going great, but I was spending an hour or two each day just manually following people on all these various accounts. After a while I just couldn't take it anymore and stopped following people. It's been about a year since then and out of the 6,000 followers I gained, I still have about 5,300 of them (which is pretty good considering I use my IG account like a LOT).

    Anyways, it just hit me the other day that my YouTube channel was doing WAY better back when I was doing all that following. I was considering starting it back up again, and then I realized that just following a bunch of IG users HAS TO BE automatable. I haven't figured out exactly how to do it yet, but if I could somehow grab a list of all the people who have liked a certain popular YouTuber's IG photo, load that list into some sort of bot that would automatically follow 3 of the users per min, and then just do that with a bunch of different IG accounts, my channel would blow up. PLUS I feel like it'd be a great system, because I don't care AT ALL if the accounts get banned. I just want to promote my channel by following people until I get banned or hit the 7,500 follow limit (and ideally have several accounts all doing this automatically).

    Now all I need to figure out is:

    1. How can I get a list of all the people who have liked a certain IG photo

    2. What can I use to automatically follow 3 people (from the previously mentioned list) each minute

    3. How can I get more than one of these running at once

    Does anyone know how I could go about doing this? I know there are websites you can pay to use, but they look expensive and I kinda want to test it out and see if it works as well as I think I will before I can justify spending much money. I've never really messed around with bots much before, but I feel like this shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.
    Let me know what you think!

    What? Your bhw thread name is "Success Using Instagram to Promote YouTube Account", it was supposed you already tested out this method.
    If you are still doing tests, then do it manually. If you want to scale up, then buy tools.

    Yeah, so far I've had a ton of success doing it manually. Now I'm trying to figure out how to automate it. What tools should I buy (and how do I know that they are not just going to stop working next time Instagram comes out with an update)?

    Since it worked for you once, it should definitely work for you again! Working manually would have been a really tedious work, I would suggest you to head out to the Marketplace to check out some of the automation tools being offered which you can have a look at and give them a try which should get the tasks you mentioned done pretty easily.

    And some of them might not have a trial version to test so maybe try contacting their support and ask for a little help with trying the tool.

    I would go halfsies with you on an imacro script. Not sure where the best place to get the list of people who have liked the photo. Right now I have an iMacro script that goes to a specific user's list of followers and likes 2 photos with a timer between actions. Works pretty well, but I know the method you have described works better its just a bitch to do everyday.
