I’ve noticed that as soon as I follow some big accounts (like Beyonce or others) I get a couple of bot followers.
As such I’m looking to test which big accounts I should follow to bring in the most amount of bot followers. My goal is to get 100 followers just by following big accounts.
They are not good followers for few reason.
Most of them if you’re lucky unfollow you after a while. If they don’t you will accumulate ghost followers which decrease your engagement rate making harder to be in the explore section
granted i’m new, but doing what bots do wouldn’t reflect well on your account(s). i’m preferring the strategy of niche centric competitors (similar accounts), that aren’t overly large (10k to 150k). I find (so far) the active engagement users are hungry for content. This is leading to finding accounts where i get ~10% follow back and it blends in with legitimate engagement, keeping my engagement from followers over 20% thus far
if the bots are doing it, it’s because it’s a cheap ROI for their purpose. If they want a large follower count, and that’s all, they go where they get cheap followers.
imo, if you want a quality account you can make money with, or from, you should be focused on engagement…but then again…i’m new…so wtf do i know heh
