Method: Get laser targeted Instagram followers with Follow/Unfollow method

15 replies
Hey everyone,

I've been reading the forum very often but didn't post much, except in my wso thread. Since I'm, let's say, at least good with Instagram and getting followers on this social media network, I'd like to explain you how to get laser targeted followers by using "Follow/Unfollow" or "Like" method.

For those do not know about these methods, and I believe there's no many of them here:
- Follow/Unfollow method: Follow user, wait 2-3 days until they follow you back and then unfollow them
- Like method: Like posts of users so they check your profile and follow you


OK, so that would be short explanation for users who aren't familiar with IG and getting followers. Now, let's get to the point.

Let's say you are in Bodybuilding niche and you want only USA followers, specifically from New York, who are surely interested in bodybuilding. How can you find them?

The trick is pretty simple. All you have to do is go to Google and search for Gyms in New York. After that, click on Maps so you go to Google Maps. You will have all major gyms in New York in results, like this:
https://www.google.ba/maps/search/gy.../data=!3m1!4b1

Now, when you're there, click on one of the results. In example below, I'll use "Mid City Gym & Training"


As you can see, when I clicked there, on left side on the screen you can see gyms info and website URL. Go to their website and you'll find their Instagram account there. In this case @midcitygym account. They do not have a lot of followers, just little over 1400+ but they're real and that's your target audience. It's not some gym that is worldwide popular, so only people from New York liked their Instagram profile and their followers are your perfect audience.

Now all you have to do is follow their followers and wait for them to follow you back, or, if you use Like method, like pics of their followers and wait until they check notifications, see that you liked their pics and follow you back. I suggest liking at least 2-3 random pics (not latest) so users think you actually checked their whole profile.

Of course, you will repeat this process until you find at least 10 IG profiles of gyms in New York so you have enough users to follow. It shouldn't take you more than 10-15 minutes.

This method isn't just good for getting followers. It's also great for selling products or promoting country targeted CPA offers.

Of course, you can be creative here, I used fitness, gyms, bodybuilding niche, but let's say you want to promote your account that is "weddings niche". You'll search for "wedding dresses New York" or "wedding dresses Chicago" or any other city that you want your followers to be from.

The profiles you will find will almost always have less than 10 000 followers, but that's just enough if you find 10-20 profiles, since you don't need profile that has 1 million followers and 50% of them aren't from USA which was our target country in this case.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll gladly answer.

Regards.

    Not a good strategy.

    Only because, it is not genuine, manipulative, based on gaming a system, and, well, there are probably 5-10 other low energy reasons I could include

    Here's what you do to get human beings on Instagram to follow you, so they Like your updates and spread your word, and grow your business: help people persistently, by Liking updates related to your niche, by commenting on updates related to your niche and by following people related to your niche.

    Be genuine for the next 3-6 months, then, for the next 6-12 months, then for years.

    If you stray from being genuine - doing the follow-unfollow, fear-based, manipulative stuff - you will get burned, as always happens to the masses of folks who use these methods, on Instagram and Twitter.

      You are very wrong mate. There's nothing wrong with this. And this is coming from a guy who's working on social networks and its automation/botting for last couple of years.

      Follow/Unfollow and Like methods work perfectly fine.

      However, you should have a good content, that's where you and I agree.

      And also works for promoting CPA offers where you don't need to have great content

    Great suggestions. Earlier i was doing follow and unfollow for my motivational page. It works smooth, but you have to be consistent in posting stuffs to engage your followers so that they don't think that they have followed a worthless handle.

      Of course, great content is always a must. nobody will engage with crappy one.

      Liking posts of your followers also helps, just to remind them on your profile.

    I can confirm that this method works quite well and it may be the quickest and cheapest way to grow your Instagram profile.

    What ryanbiddulph mentioned before works as well, but that's a long term strategy that takes much more to get results.

    Just 2 comments on this method:

    - I don't see the point of unfollowing people after they follow you. There's no problem in following thousands of people (unless you want to have a clean timeline) and you just waste precious time with unfollowing, when you can easily follow more NEW profiles in that time

    - for the Liking part, you can definitely use an auto-like tool and target specific hashtags, users or locations

      Unfollowing is a must since there's a 7500 followings limit. You need to unfollow at some point in order to follow new users.

    Well, it is an effective strategy.

    Which tool are you using?

    I was with instagress before they got shut down. Haven't really looked into many other alternatives because they kept getting shut down.

    This would be way too time consuming if it was a manual process.

    ironstill,

    Instagram is great way to promote products or services to a targeted audience. Just make sure you keep up to date on the latest on Instagram, they changed the rules, just like most social media sites. In some cases you could be penalized for not following the rules.
