I want to increase the Limits of my account interactions. Are there any safety recommendations?
Please keep in mind that there are no official limit patterns for Instagram, a lot of factors come into play here. We’ll mention a few important ones:
- Age of the Instagram account
- Size – Number of followers
- Overall engagement (comments & likes)
- Active/inactive accounts
For Example: Aged Instagram accounts (+3 month) can follow more than new accounts; Accounts with a lot of followers can follow more than those with few followers; Active accounts that also have great engagement also tend to be allowed to follow more than dormant accounts.
Our recommended strategy to begin with:
Following and Unfollowing Limit:
300 – 350/day and 40 – 50/hour for the first week. Then increase those numbers by between 50 – 70/day and 10 – 20/hour every other week until you reach a maximum of 800/day and 100/hour following for your account.
400 – 450/day and 20 – 30/hour for the first week. Then increase those numbers by between 40 – 50/day and 10 – 20/hour every other week until you reach a maximum of 700/day and 70/hour likes for your account.
50 – 100/day and 5 – 10/hour for the first week. Then increase those numbers by between 5 – 10/day and 5 – 10/hour every other week until you reach a maximum of 250/day and 20/hour comments for your account.
Story View Limit:
30 – 50/day and 5 – 10/hour for the first week. Then increase those numbers by between 5 – 10/day and 5 – 10/hour every other week until you reach a maximum of 200/day and 30/hour comments for your account.
Other useful tips while using FitFluencer:
Here we will explain the best practices for you to get the best results!
1. DO NOT USE any other Instagram automation platforms
Using multiple Automation Services at the same time can cause you to get banned by Instagram.
2. Don’t be greedy
Especially when you start and pay for our Instagram service, we know you want to see fast results! But let’s make this crystal clear . FitFluencer’s mission is to bring real followers to you. That means we are picking the exact audience that you tell us to target. Real people are not always on their phones; real followers will follow you if they really like your content.
So, if you put out a lot of content, with proper hashtags, locations, following a great content strategy, our automation service will boost and skyrocket your results.
3. Never run out of targets
To get the best results, you should know who your target audience is. If you never want to run out of targets, you should ask yourself the following questions:
- Who do you want to have as a follower? ( Fitness lovers, Foodies, etc)
- Who is your competition? ( E.g. If you’re a female Fitness Influencer, target the most popular female Fitness Influencer pages on Instagram such as Gracefituk)
- Where are you located? If you have a local personal training business in the UK, it doesn’t make sense to target people in Europe. But it makes perfect sense to target people in your city!
- What hashtags are popular in your niche? (See what your competitors are doing)
We recommend you to have 15 to 20 active targets. Using Page and Hashtag targets from your competitors has the highest conversion rate. A conversion rate > 10% is good. If its lower than that, change the target and try to optimise your results. Also bear in mind that your content plays a large role in your conversion rate.
4. Let the Unfollow feature keep your ratio looking healthy
Instagram has a Limit of 7500 people you can follow. To hide the fact that you’re using an automation service, the best technique is to have a 50% Follower/Following Ratio . That means, for example, if you have 4000 Followers, your Unfollowing process should start as soon as you have reached 2000 Followings (The following threshold is in your FitFluencer Promotion Settings).
5. Don’t maximize your limits and activity speed
We’ve developed this service with the goal of keeping your account safe. Therefore your actions should emulate human behavior to Instagram. For this reason, you should enable ‘Night Mode’ to turn the service off automatically each night (while everyone is sleeping) and also keep your limits to a minimum. Our service has three activity speeds, we recommend to use them with care. Slow or Normal are our recommended speeds if you are using the service in the first few months.
6. Write natural sounding and creative comments
Whilst using our comment feature, we strongly recommend to add a very large number of comments (using the spintax format). You should also make sure your comments will be suitable no matter what the content is, so make them as neutral as possible!
7. Answer all your comments.
If someone has taken the time to write a comment under your post, it is good practice to reply so that you can build a stronger relationship with your audience. You can use our Comment Tracker service to manage all your comments easily inside your FitFluencer dashboard.
