    Hi all,

    I have a Instagram account which has more than 4k followers and is now more than 1 year old. My niche is in the "beautiful girls" and I'm focusing on my own country (The Netherlands). If my account gets bigger, I will focus on the rest of the countries.

    So each day, I'll browse at Instagram to find girls who in my eyes are perfect for my account. On each post, I use my own created tag. So, let's say my accountname is @GOOD, I use the first tag (#Good) in my posts.

    When I first started, it went really well and my account was growing fast (likes, followers and comments), but than for some reason/time, it just stopped.

    Than I did something stupid and bought fake followers (3k followers). They are still there on my account and I don't know how I can remove them, as manually blocking every follower would take me ages. I tried to use Massplanner, but it only could find 200 fake followers.

    So, I saw that the results of the 3k fake followers was also bad, so I was looking for another way to increase engagement and that is buying shoutouts from niche related accounts. I did that and spend like $60 dollar and the results was bad either. The followers went away after some time.

    At this moment, my posts are getting 10-60 likes, but that's mostly because of the popularity of the girls and/or the tags i'm using.

    So, my question, how can I increase my engagement on my Instagram account? I have some options, which I was thinking:
    1. Stop with this account and create another one and learn from my mistakes;
    2. Buy shoutouts from niche related account and hope that the engagement will increase;
    3. Use Ingress/Followliker/Massplanner to increase my engagement (So, like/comment/follow/unfollow)

    Also, I would like to know, how can I automate blocking fake followers on my account?

    Why only focusing on your own country?

    i recommend using fl/mp to increase your engagement

    If there is a tool to automate block fake followers, instagram would use it too and no one would be able to sell followers :)

    That happened with my personal account also.I use it now with massplanner but it is not changing anything .It doesn't worth to keep it.I made other accounts and keep the original one just because I have massplanner anyway. You should better invest money in a new account and some shoutouts if you plan a long term thing. Goodluck

    your account is not worth much ..... you can buy much better accounts for the money you spent on shoutouts ...
    i just would start new and don't focus on your country which limits a lot

    Just to clarify, my niche is focused on my own country at the moment, but I still get likes/comments/followers from other countries, but in the future this will be changed.

    Yea, I want to try it with FL, but I want to be sure that my engagement will increase while using FL.

    Thats true, but MP has a function called blocking followers, but it only goes to 200 recent followers.


    What account could I get with $60 you think?

    At the moment, it's personal now as I have no FB account for my Instagram account. Will do this if I see that my account gets bigger, but is it a big difference than?

    Don't buy shoutouts cause it'll make your engagement worse.

    Probably bot to 10k and/or use engagement groups

    you can use the instagram cleaner app for mass unfollowing/blocking. you get 25 free actions but then you need to pay $3 for unlimited actions but i feel like its 110% worth it because you can mass block/unblock to get rid of fakes. also to increase engagement i would nuke about 2k fakes then start manually follow/unfollow and you will grow fast :D
