First, this method is easy, free, and you get 100% real followers. No bots, no fake followers, this is the real deal.

Yowsers! Over 6K followers and I’ll show you how.

  • Post 3x daily
  • Post engaging content with gorgeous photos
  • Fashion an engaging caption with keywords and hashtags
  • Ask a question, like yay or nay? Eat it or beat it? Fash it or smash it?

Then, engage

  • Thanks followers for their comments
  • Return a like on a followers’ page
  • Join engagement pods

Heres the gold mine method though:

The Follow Unfollow Method

Here’s how it batch follow relevant users in your niche and the thinking is that at least 25% will follow you back. If they don’t return the follow within 3 days, then unfollow (unless you want to keep following them for their content) and move on to the next batch of follows.

Simple enough right?

This really works. It’s pretty incredible. You can do this over and over. It never becomes less effective.

How to automate it?

Use tools that will do the following for you!

Pro Tips:

  • Make sure you can target followers

    Here it is, if you want to take a look at it:

    And thanks again for the great post!

    The biggest problem I used to face in maintaining my Instagram account was my irregularity in posts. I started searching for an automation tool, and then I discovered WizBoost [com]. Wizboost is the right tool for those who are unable to give time to their Instagram account. All it needs is a five-minute setup, and you are free to go, Wizboost will take care of the rest.
