yeah I'm doing something similar. MAIN ACCT ---> 8 HIGH-QUALITY Tier 2's-----> Tier 3 (idk how many yet)
My tier-2s are basically as genuine and HQ as my MAIN, just lacking my site logo and URL- that's basically it. They have gained more traction than my main acct right now ( early stages) as they look completely genuine and aren't pushing a site on people.
Weird thing happened, right now I have my main and 5 HQ tier 2's. I added 4 of the tier 2's a few days back, and before work yesterday I got the 5th put in, but didnt have time to set up REPIN. Today's stats show the latest account I made and added has 6x more followers than the other 4 ALREADY, without REPIN even running. It followed 118 people and got 114 follow backs, with only a description and profile pic. I have no clue why this happened unless it just got lucky with an extremely good portion of follow sources. I'm testing again today with no pins on it, we'll see how it performs for day 2.
I've been "warming" accounts up by starting follow tool with 49-61 , with 10 increase each day. Like tool set at the same. I've been repinning 4-7 pins per board ( 8 boards) for a total of about ~40 repins with new accounts. I'm interested to see what settings others are using for warm-up... The reason my fresh account yesterday did so many follows is I copied settings for follow tool and forgot to slow it down.
That's all I got for now..
