    About: I am a senior in high school and A couple months ago i started an instagram account with 0 followers in a verrry unsaturated niche. over the past 3 months i have grown the account to 66,000 followers and growing. my pictures on my main account get average of 4k-6k likes each and a good amount of comments. (my other accounts have 20k followers and 10k followers). my name on my main instagram helps a lot... and the hashtag of it has 23,000 posts (PM me if you would like to know)

    How:
    for the first month of using my account i would post about 2-3 QUALITY pictures every day. Quality means HD, no pixelated or blurry pictures. (Quality is King). I would also follow about 500-1000 people every day. once my following would get to around 1,200 i would unfollow everybody on that list and start over again from 0 followings. i would mostly follow people who liked pictures of the bigger accounts in my niche (I am the biggest account in my niche now & with the most engagement :cool::cool:) so of course you cant follow/unfollow forever and people got mad when i would keep following and unfollowing them. with my 66k i post about 2-4 times a day. make sure your content isnt spamming users.

    Monetizing: so when i hit around 20k followers i came up with a design on photoshop pertaining to my niche, and i printed them on a gray t-shirt i bought from walmart $4.72....... i made a bigcartel site and sold them for $20 with $5 shipping. i have made just about $600 off that. I have access to a printing press because i am a senior in high school using my classrooms printing station. so i am basically printing for free & shipping only costs about $3 . now i know most people dont have access to such things, but that goes to show you that if you have the following, people will buy... I am also staying away from shout outs on my main account. i will probably use shout outs to monetize my other accounts listed below once they grow a large amount of followers.

    Followliker: after i hit 20k followers I used some of the t-shirt money to purchase followliker so i could automate my following/unfollowing. i usually go week by week following until i hit 7000 following, and then ill go a whole week unfollowing to see how much natural growth i get. i also like about 1000 pictures daily from hashtags in my niche.

    Whats next?: i have another t-shirt design on the way that i am going to put on a black long sleeve shirt. I've been thinking of creating a website so more of my followers can see the content i post. i plan on using wordpress to create that. once i do that i will be able to earn some money from ansense. if someone could help me get a tutorial on how to do that it would be much appriciated!!

    Other accounts:
    i also have 2 other accounts in the same niche. one with 20k followers and an average of 1.5k-2k likes per post and another with 10k followers and 500-1k likes per post. i havent monetized these yet because im not quite sure how besides using a website for adsense. but they both run with the same settings on followliker.

    Conclusion:
    Content is Key for creating a big instagram account in a short period of time. if you have good, quality unique posts, you account will have a great followback ratio and will grow.

    I will definitely be keeping this thread updated as want to have a page where everyone can benefit from it and see my progress.

    Feel free to ask me any questions but please keep them in the thread.
    PM me for my kik username or if you'd like to know what my accounts are.

    Awesome stuff. I like that t-shirt idea too. Most people jump right into adsense, mylikes, shoutouts, etc. Looking forward to your journey and I wish you the best.

    Have you looked at amazon merch yet for T-shirt creation? I mean, your school is eventually going to shut you down. Either way good luck!

    Happy to say that I'm friends with my teacher who teaches the class. He knows the whole scheme:thumb: but I am going to graduate soon, so I'll definitely look into that. Thank!
