Question: Instagram experts needed!

7 replies
Hello all,

I am new to the forums here though I am not new to internet marketing. I have a quick question and would love some opinions on what I should do.

So heres the situation:

I started a niche instagram account and I am in the process of trying to get followers. I just purchased followliker, a domain name, and I have been asking about prices for shoutouts.

I want to have a decent following of at least 20k+ before asking for shoutouts. Should I use followliker to get there or should I just go ahead and buy 20k fake followers?

I do not want to run the risk of getting banned so I'm not sure what amount of fake followers will get on IG's radar.


Here are my questions laid out:
1. What are optimal settings for followliker that do not run a risk of getting banned?
2. What is a safe number of fake followers to purchase? (if its safe at all)
3. At what number of followers would you recommend starting to purchase shoutouts?


Thank you all in advance and I can't wait to share my success with you all!

Best,

Nemo

    Fake followers are not recommended at all. IG will scan accounts and either 1. delete all of those fakes (bringing your followers back down to nothing) and or 2. flag and suspend your account.

    Plus it sounds like you want to give shoutouts as well? (charge or trade), I think that would be very unethical to offer shout outs to an account full of fakes. As for needing to wait until your account 'looks good' before getting shout outs to your username; it's about the content more than how many followers you have.

    The key on IG is great content, very relevant hashtags, following people that you want to follow you, liking other photos from people that you want to follow you. Do the work and build a strong foundation.

      Thanks for the help! And good point, I was thinking about getting 20k fake followers just to make it look legit and then once i got 100k followers organically i would do shoutouts but I definitely understand where it could still be unethical. Duly noted.

      Also, even with follow liker, it can be slow. Does anyone know if my account would get flagged/suspended if I just followed 1000 people a night manually?

    Hey Nemo,

    There are limits put in place on how much activity you can do with your instagram account.

    I am pretty sure you will get your account banned if you just follow 1000 people a night all at once. Especially if this account is brand new.

    From what I remember there are no daily limits, but there is an hourly limit to how much activity your account can do. (I could be wrong about this though)

    On my brand new accounts I spread out the activity throughout the day. So I would do a certain amount of likes/follows/comments per hour, and spread this out throughout the day. A bit tedious but it worked for me. Then after a couple weeks I would automate the process with a bot.

    I hope this helps you out a little bit, and have a good one buddy!

    I use this daily limits:
    Following - 1500 at once (12-21 seconds per action)
    Likes - 1500 at once (12-21 seconds per action)
    Unfollowing - 3000 at once (3-9 seconds per action)
    Commenting - 15 per hour

    Pause between actions:
    Following-Unfollowing - 12 hours
    Unfollowing-Following - 12 hours

    I've grown an account organically and for free to 50k.

    I would advise NEVER buying fake followers etc. People will see right through it when your engagement is 0% and you have 20k followers. The numbers just don't like right.

    Don't do it buddy.
    Grow it organically and slowly, purchase shout outs from larger account and do share for shares with pages in your niche.

    Don't rush it.

    To get followers, just simple add a hastag and your niche. For example, if your niche is basketball, #basketball or #baller and you will get a ton of people who added those hastags. Go and like their pictures with the objective of getting a follow or at least a like back.
