Quick start

After you sign up for Folme, the next step is to set up your account by following the steps below:

  1. 1. Enter your Instagram username.
  2. 2. Choose a promotion strategy. There are 3 types of strategies:
    • Low is designed for new Instagram users (accounts created less than 6 months ago). You are going to follow up to 100 people per day.
    • Middle is for accounts created 6 to 12 months ago, and for those who are not the most active Instagram users. You are going to follow up to 200 people per day.
    • Hard is designed for accounts created more than 1 year ago, and for people who use Instagram every day. You are going to follow up to 300 people per day.
  3. 3. Set up the working time of your account.
  4. 4. Click on Add Account.

Once you’ve done this, you will be redirected to a page where you should add 3 to 10 of your competitors one by one:

  1. 5. Enter the first username and click on Add.
  2. 6. Enter the second username and click on Add again. Repeat for all of your competitors you want to add.
  3. 7. Once you’ve added your competitors, click on Start promotion – it will take you to the main page.
