Best JARVEE Follow Settings for Growing Instagram Accounts

As you may noticed, I’m a big fan of JARVEE Social Media Automation tool, especially for Instagram. I mention it in almost each of my blog posts. That’s because it helped me to grow my Instagram accounts and it’s simply perfect Instagram bot.

Today I wanted to show you best JARVEE follow tool settings to use in order to get most of this tool and get a bunch of new followers daily. Along with follow tool settings, I will also show you best performing sources.

So, let’s start with settings. As you probably already know, Instagram has a follow limit of about 60 users per hour, that means you should be able to follow or unfollow about 1200 users per day. Or if you prefer to follow and unfollow in the same day, then 600 follows and 600 unfollows. Delays for follow and unfollow tools are pretty much same, but you can be slightly more aggressive with Unfollow.

With these settings, you will follow you will follow between 25 – 40 users per each operation that JARVEE executes, in average 42 users per hour, so you will stay below Instagram limits. The maximum you will be following per day is 1200 users. Sometimes will happen that you follow 1050 or 1130 or any other number of users between 1000 – 1200 since we set daily maximum to 1000 – 1200.

Now, let’s see what kind of filters you should use. Filters are there to help you laser target your audience, but be cautious, if you use too many filters, JARVEE might have hard time finding users that pass those and you will end up following less than expected 1000-1200 users. To avoid this, use the filters below.

JARVEE Follow Settings Filters

In my case, I don’t want to follow users that have non English characters in name, username or bio. So I checked “Skip Non English users”. I also don’t want to follow users without profile pic, therefore that filter is also checked. “User is not following this account” filter is checked for obvious reason, I don’t need to get attention from user that is already following me, we already have it, right? And last one, “Do not follow private users” is checked to avoiding sending follow requests to private Instagram accounts. They’re private for a reason and probably don’t want some strangers to follow them, so no point in trying to send the follow request at all.

Below is After Follow Actions section. I use it to like posts of users that I’ve followed, immediately after following them. Following and liking 2-3 posts user’s posts will really get them to pay attention to your profile, especially if you check “Like random posts” so you don’t like just latest 3. Liking random posts looks like you really checked their profile.

The “Remove poor quality Sources” feature is really useful one. If you added, for example, 10 sources and after following 100 users from one of those sources, you don’t get 0,15 follow back ratio, JARVEE will remove that source since it’s poor performing. 0.15 follow back ratio after 100 follows means that you should get at least 15 new followers from that source after following 100 users.

OK. Now let’s go to Sources:

Recommended Follow Sources for JARVEE

The sources I like to use and that bring me highest follow back rate are the one you see checked in screenshot below.

So, the first source I check is “Follow followers/followings of target accounts”, but of course, we’ll follow just followers not followings. After checking the box, enter usernames of big accounts in your niche and make sure you click on ADD ACCOUNT FOLLOWERS button. Set selection rank to 4. This means that out of 10 follow operations, JARVEE will use this source 4X.

Next source that also brings good follow back rate, but works best if you use big IG accounts as target accounts, is “Follow users that interacted with posts on target accounts”. Set selection rank to 6. You also see that this feature has “Follow users who commented in last X minutes. It’s set to 1 in screenshot, but I usually set it to 15 or 20 minutes. So, make sure you do too. 1 minute is too low and JARVEE might have troubles finding users to follow since it could happen that nobody comments on target account’s posts for couple of minutes.

So, you have what you need to grow your Instagram account without much effort and it’s right time to start doing it. To start using JARVEE, visit this link: JARVEE – Start Free Trial

Balkan Social Media Tips


  1. Hi, thank you for the suggestions on what numbers to use for following. Are you also using auto-likes? Do I need to bother if I’m already auto-liking photos of people I’ve followed?

    • Like tool can be used seperately, to gain extra attention from other users. It’s really up to you will you use it or not.

      In case you start using it make sure you don’t use too aggressive settings. Stay below 60 likes per hour.

      Try with these
      Delay between each operation 25-45 minutes
      Likes per operation 20-40
      Delay between each like 15 – 45
      Max likes per day 800 – 1000

        • Not really. It’s just enough. However, you can try different delays and follows per operation, just make sure you don’t go over 50 follows per hour.

  2. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    • Link exchange isn’t really good for SEO, we could both get our sites deindexed 🙂

      • BTW, you might want to start promoting your website on social media, but in organic way, don’t use ads if you don’t have big budget.

  3. My account still getting blocked very often, I really don’t understand.

    • Blocked from following?
      It can happen if you didn’t warm up your account or if you’re using bad proxy.

    • You can use same settings as in follow tool, but don’t run both tools simultaneously. Not recommended 🙂

  4. Was searching for best settings, so far these settings made a miracle for me!! Thanks so much!
    And I need to get some more info about Jarvee settings.. Let me know how I can contact you! Thanks!!!
