    I always start with F/UF to check whether my page is interesting enough or not before moving on to paid advertising using ads or shoutouts

    Ads (paid and not), definitely. I also gain followers through giveaways and most of the time, I get some good amount of engagement in my posts. -Micah

    Thats on the list! You didn't vote! What niche are you in? Because for me ads don't do much, no one is interested and it seems people think negatively of ads.

    I am mostly a lurker, because when I start speaking about growing organically and recommend people to stop automation, people start whining: "This is a not a WhiteHat forum bla bla bla". Nevertheless, I grow organically between 2500-5000 followers a week, and it has worked for me very well, because I continue to create new ways of keeping the followers engaged and connected to the page. Even though my page is impersonal itself, I have tried to personalize it a bit by going Live and do Stories, where I appear as the presenter. And I collaborate with relevant and influential people in the niche, so I ensure that the quality of the page is the best.

    Targeted Automatic likes without follow/unfollow, for me it's the only way if you want the best engagement (10℅-20℅).
    All the followers are active and interested in my posts because they decided to follow me for my content and not for a temporary follow.
    Reached 4k followers and now my followers are growing organically

    Follow unfollow the fastest way to gain at least 100+ a day. The algorithms are just getting worse though :-(

    Ooo nice and low likes per hour. How often do you switch up which hashtags you target? Also how many likes per user are you giving?

    Only 1 Like per user and i never switch hashtags.
    If i want to target dog lovers I will not use #dogs #dog etc.. , i prefer to target breeds or dog food brands, more specific and less spammed.
    Also, pictures that the bot target have max 50 likes
    Maybe will not work with dog niche but with mine.. yes :)

    Sorry for my bad english but i'm in a hurry :)
