Miscellaneous Instagram Tips

When working for new accounts, I often follow until blocked, wait an hour and then follow again. There’s a general consensus that says you can follow up to 200 profiles per hour. However, I’ve gotten blocked after following less than 25 people, and I’ve followed up to 1000 without getting blocked. It all seems to have something to do with the age of the account, how active it is, and how much other people engage with it.

Final Thoughts

For now, you can’t follow more than 7500 profiles at a time. Meaning, you won’t grow past 7500 with a follow for a follow. You’ll need to do some strategic following and unfollowing or be so super awesome that everyone knows you and can’t wait to follow you. Some people find it offensive to follow with the plan to unfollow. You decide. It's really difficult to grow very big otherwise- without cheating.

I use an Unfollowers app and unfollow people who don’t follow me back within a week. I whitelist everyone I want to keep following. The app allows you to add a star to profiles that you want to keep following. When unfollowing, it will skip over anyone with a star.

Occasionally, I get close to 7500 and have to unfollow some people I’d prefer to continue following. I have to focus on goals. I want real people. If they notice I unfollowed them and they unfollow me because they think it’s yuck, so be it. For this reason, I don’t follow all of my Facebook friends or family. We’ll keep in touch over there. Once you reach your goal, you can go follow them all back. What’s nasty, is that Instagram puts this limit on our accounts. We should be allowed to follow everyone who follow us!
