    Hey just out of curiosity, how did you get these screenshots? Do you have different people managing each of these accounts or do you use multiple phones for a specific reason? Just caught my eye that one screenshot has AT&T as the telephone provider, another has KPN, one has T-Mobile, one has Sprint and the other two are on Android phones. Just hoping to clarify as I'm looking to manage all my accounts on just two phones if possible, and wondering if there is a reason to not do this.
    Thanks!
    Eric

    The screenshots were from clients themselves. They use different phones etc. and I ask them to take a screenshot so they can witness the results themselves.

    During the free trial that you offer new clients, what do you specifically do to get their content to go viral? Do you use power likes, DM groups or both?
    Also, where do you recommend a beginner go to get affordable power likes for their clients? I found this site called BoostSocial and am curious to hear your thoughts on whether you think their power likes are worth it.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Each program can be customized. if the person himself does not understand, there are many sites where you can ask for advice (for example, bigbangram.com/blog). such programs can help many people. Of course everything should be in the complex. I use the software and happy.

    Interesting stuff. I've recently been learning about instagram growth for clients. They are a destination wedding planner and their biggest results absolutely came from an influencer actually having a wedding with them. Incredible results, people actually messaging them with double the budget of what their normal average is (50k to 100k).

    Instagram bot tools scare the crap out of me the more I look into it. I'm only using it for scheduling now. Even though with the tool I'm using, you can get pretty defined with who you follow and how often all actions are performed daily/hourly etc. It did work, but still, worried it's playing with fire. So just scheduling for now.

    I've been on the edge about marketing on Instagram. i remember this summer there was a large trend of "smma" or other marketing agencies. i also have a friend who says that he started one up and focuses on Instagram marketing. to me it feels like getting into Instagram marketing at this point is gonna be violating the commandment of entry. should one go about it as an agency, helping others grow their Instagram accounts, or is the knowledge useful for when you're trying to grow your own company's Instagram?

    I hear you. And I've seen the social media manager I was using before pull their hair out when they get shadowbanned by Instagram, or get locked out oftheir Facebook and add accounts etc. Way too much control to those platforms!

    In saying that, social management requests seem to be coming my way, so I'm using it as a chance to get paid to learn for when I need to use it on my own projects in the near future.

    There are many apps to help you do that. I recommend follower chief I used it personally and it can help you unfollow 250 people at once. It will take about 5 minutes to complete.

    Is it a good idea to unfollow so many accounts in one go though? I would think Instagram algo may find that unnatural behaviour. But then again, I'm paranoid AF lol.

    Yes, it's not a good idea to unfollow so fast but the worst thing that can happen is a temporary block.

    Once your account is old. You can unfollow really fast to be honest. Following needs to be steady. Unfollowing is not such an issue.

    Haha :)

    I've looked into businesses that are clearing 7+ figures in revenue out of curiosity..

    Some of them have barely any social media presence, IMO forget about building some big massive IG/FB etc. Get the sales and who gives a ****

    While it can be a valuable tool it doesn't matter as much as people think

    Do drug dealers advertise on Facebook?

    Be like a drug dealer, (minus the illegal part)
