I believe follow/unfollow method kills an account when you are doing it by manually this days. One error, your get flagged and you have a reduced visibility potential for that account. I was inside my room for 9 straight months, trying to build an account with my hand, but in the end I failed and also lost the account to a scammer. My engagement kept droping. Instagram surely knows that a normal person won't be following and unfollowung all the time. It's now been over a year since I dropped Instagram. I want to start again building between 1 - 3 accounts. I finally know which niche to dive into. Any suggestions on what I can do without following/unfollowing? I also have to mention that I discovered a niche where I had 3000+ followers and I was getting between 50 - 300 comments. But the followers are kids and people in their teens. I am going to wake up the account again, but how do I make money from this set of people, because they clearly can't buy anything.
