    tl;dr I am new on this forum. Can someone point me to where I should start reading and what are the legit methods of growing your IG account without buying followers etc

    Hey guys,

    I just discovered this forum by googling if FollowLiker is legal.

    I am amazed by the amount of info on this forum and have read through many thread already, but it is all kind of all over the place.

    Does anybody got a place to start for me, like a collection of posts I should read, or like the very basics.

    I am already doing internet marketing the white hat way for a long time and there are certain things I think are pretty useless like buying followers, comments etc.

    But things like FollowLiker sound interesting to me.

    Anyway is there like another alternative to doing it the FollowLiker way. For example how do I grow a real account with real engagement, real followers without having to follow and unfollow thousands of accounts.

    I am talking about these big accounts who only really follow around a hundred people but have a massive following themselves and huge engagement.

    Can someone point me to posts that talk about the methods of growing your instagram and social media accounts?

    Thanks guys and sorry for the newbie question

    Large accounts that only follow a hundred or so people are typically people who are already an authority of some kind. Your best bet is to manually follow, like, and comment on followers of the big guys in your niche. It's a long process honestly, but it does work. You can just unfollow later on and expect that some of yours will drop too. However, that's just the way IG is.

    So if manually following, liking and commeting on followers of the big guys in my niche is the alternative, and the outcome is basically the same (meaning I will have a lot of guys I will follow) I could actually just use FollowLiker which basically does the same and safe myself the manual work right?

    Yep! Since you are only using one account you don't have to worry about proxies and all that other crap either. Just don't do anything extreme and set the bot up to be "more natural". Think about how long it takes a real person to browse, like, follow, etc. Don't like, follow, and unfollow all at the same time.

    Also, commenting is really best done manually in my opinion. That's what really helps build solid engagement. Turn the bot off and spend maybe an hour a day dropping relevant comments.

    You should take a look at MassPlanner in the marketplace here. Tons of IG users swear by it, and it's worth having a peek before you buy something else.

    Thank you! Well, in the future I plan to have more accounts of course, so a tool would be helpful.

    I will take my time and research further before diving into any of these.

    Yeah it's handy for 1 account or 100. Just take proper precautions and you should see growth with very little effort on your part ;)
