    Hey guys, just wanted to share some experience about this method.

    For anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about I'm referring to the method of getting many accounts to comment and tag users in your post. This is a extremely effective method if done right.
    Here is some of my experience regarding this:

    Also since its not your actual account tagging the people I've found these tips will take any suspicions or hate off your account itself and more focused at the account that actually tagged them.
    #1- In the post use a caption that says something like "tag your friends who would like this" etc. Just something that shows you have asked people to tag friends. That way the tagged users don't initially suspect your account they will just think its weird that a random account has tagged them.
    #2- Try and use a collage or something that shows your variety. Simply because if the tagged user has any interest in your post they will be less likely to comment about why they were tagged, and of course more likely to follow you. Having a variety in the one post just gives more chance that they would like one of them. For example if you tagged them in a picture of a boat, they only have one chance to be interested in it and if they didn't like boats then their interest wont be there. If it was a boat and a nice car and they happen to like cars then you have more chance obviously. Sorry for the lame example but i hope you get my point, this is mainly important when trying to get sales on products.
    #3- Quickly delete any comments if possible of people complaining about being tagged. Once it gets too regular more start to join in and then it could get a bit too much. But if your target users are right and your post is good this issue wont be much to worry about
    #4- Younger age groups are a lot more likely to whinge, and i mean A LOT more haha They can really get into it and it gets intense i wont lie. But again this is never actually focused on your account itself. Unless you have a spammy type account and people get that vibe.
    #5- If you do get a lot of people complaining you can post a photo after it playing dumb and kind of apologising. Something like "Sorry to the people that are saying they got randomly tagged, I'm not sure whats going on I'm a bit confused myself". Might seem stupid but it helps keep your account reputation good.
    #6- Depending on who you get this service done by you can sometimes target specific accounts followers. This is a very important step to get right. You want targeted users so there is a higher chance they will like your post and then follow you. So search and find accounts that are as closely similar to you as possible. And check their activity/follower ratio.

    This is a very effective method when done right. Any one else have any experience with this?

    I was thinking about doing something like this. I was going to call it "Tag'em Tuesday" and encorage my followers to tag their friends, etc .... when I post on Tuesdays.

    Maybe we could start a trend here!

    Very nice strategy, do you know some tool or person who can help me to do this kind of mentions? I'm looking for 5k or more in each picture.
