Follow source ratio numbers


#21

I usually start with 25-30 then increase as I get more from research. I let them run for at least 100-120 follows.

Depends on your niche, some niches have more engagement than others. I would say, create a baseline engagement percentage that your competitors have and go off that.


#23

Are you guys following followers of targeted users or following user that interacted with post on target account


#24

I agree! 25 % seems to be the right mix for me.


#25

All depends on your objective for the account. Typically following followers produces higher FBR but the engagement from those followers tends to be lower while following users that interacted with a post produce higher engagement but lower FBR

u need to find out what you want first.

  1. Followers or ER – in f/u it is one or the other.
    Depending on which one you use – results will be different.
    Following followers will always produce higher followbacks
    following likers and commentors will result in lower numbers.

decide which one you want –
select say 50-100-150 sources
every 2 weeks look at the results and weed out bottom 50 %
in a few weeks you will have your creme de la creme

20-30 sources?
When looking for sources, I always try pages with 100k+. Would you recommend this or what would you say?
Because @Alexnvo mentions like 50-150 sources. That’s quite the stack.

The number of sources can depend on the frequency you change them. I start with 25-30 to test waters. But you can increase it to 50-150 depending on how much filtering you want and at what frequency you will change them.
Concerning the 100k+ it depends on the niche and the quality of the followers. I usually aim for smaller accounts but again it depends greatly on the niche.
