    Hi there, first off a huge thank you to all the decent people here who i have learnt so much already through my journey, it's awesome, i can't thank you enough!

    I have an aged account which i've seemed to have slowly kept alive for a number of years, posting irregularly, more recently have i attempted to grow a lot more rapidly with more frequent posting, liking and following.

    I've gone from roughly 1500 to 4000 followers in 4 weeks of using a combination of the imacros script for liking my niche's photos and following & unfollowing active accounts who have recently liked a popular accounts image, 100-130 ever hour or two, i can't seem to increase my engagement for more organic growth. I'm posting original content every second day, as i don't want to burn out too quickly with about 3 or 4 hashtags per post.

    I have purchased FL and have noticed i don't get the large flow of engagement as i do from scraping a new post with lots of active users. Is this a matter of me needing to be more patient or do i still need to hit a few more milestones or get some shoutout/features before i can expect to see more growth?

    I appreciate any advice moving forward, have a sweet day :)

    Welcome!

    Use more hash tags (20) appropriate for your saturation to reach Top Posts. You will need help to pick right tags, because you need a near-realtime tag database for that. Do you post quality content? If you want, I can take a look at your profile.

    NB I do not monitor answers to this thread. If you need an answer exactly from me, PM me or use Skype.

    Really depends on the settings you are using in Followliker, what settings are you using?

    Unfollow After 1 Day

    longdouble where do you get a realtime tag manager DB? I dont use very many hash tags...doing really well with other tactics....but would love to know more about appropriately tagging things....my photos get a really good response...but without hashtags

    You should target people who post comments on bigger accounts. It's about quality not quantity.
