    Hello friends, I opened this thread in order to keep my self motivated through my journey.

    I've been a long time here just reading. In the past, I had a previous project that didn't went good but I consider that I gained experience and motivated me even more to come up with something else.

    PLAN:

    After working a couple of months for my other project I realized that big IG and FB Pages are a very good source of traffic so I decided to create an account with something that I like, which is weed. Yes, I know it might be saturated niche in there but this helps me to consider it a long term project and also gives me some ideas of monetization afterwards.

    The main aim of the Journey is to hit 10k followers on both FB and Instagram.
    The short term goal is to gain 1-2k likes/followers in 1 month max.

    What I've done so far:

    -Got a brand username
    -I arranged the Facebook page and shared some pictures already.
    -Joined around 20+ groups based on the niche that seem active
    -Database of content for about 2 weeks and still gathering. (mixed of own content and others)
    -Shared it on my other fb page which has 3k likes.

    Methods I will use to promote the page:

    -I use 3 fb accounts to join different groups related to the niche and share the photos/articles there when i post something.
    -Viral content: High quality photos / Interaction photos
    -Instagram (didn't started yet): follow people manually.


    Day 1 ( Warm-Up phase)

    FB:
    Likes/follows: 17
    Post Reach: 2,006
    Post Engagement: 164

    Instagram:
    Followers:0
    Following: 0

    Until the next post I hope I can start with the Instagram page, maintain posting on Facebook at least 3 photos per day and join more groups.

    UPDATE

    Thank you all for the support!

    Ok! So after a day I am pretty satisfied with how things are going! I didn't set up the Instagram account yet because I had a problem with creating it, but I want to get it done sometime today! While I was managing the facebook page I realized that I should go into Twitter also cause it is a nice traffic source and I am used to it, so I re-named my old page and change it to match this project. I started posting there also and following ppl. For the moment I consider I have enough groups for sharing on Facebook so I will stop joining for now.

    Day 2

    I will continue focusing on posting photos (3-5 per day) and share in FB groups in order to reach the first goal of 1k followers, but also follow people on twitter (150 per day). Checking up on competitors and find unique content. I think the Instagram page will be managed by a friend of mine but I'm still thinking about it.
    Thank you for reading my journey and I look forward to any suggestions or questions you have.

    Thank you man :) That's my favourite too. Do you have a page or project in this area? I think if I can build a list it can be profitable :-? I am also thinking to find some other ways of "free" promotion like reddit or blog idk..

    Thank you avoutoun. The niche keeps me motivated and also this post seems like helping because I can see the progress. I followed/liked most competitors on a fake account so I can find content easily.. Finally, it is also easier because I just focus on one page on different platforms not multiple account/ bots or any blackhat..

    The content seems to attract people and I also saw which groups are responsive and which are not. I want to search for a tool to help me prepare posts in advance.. ( free if possible) If anybody knows what I can use please tell me. I hope I can reach the short term goal faster than expected!
    Thank you for following and I look forward to any suggestion or question!

    Thank you!

    I didn't had time to manage the twitter account so there are no updates there. I have problems with the instagram account cannot really create it. I will try again this week. I started posting in forums related to the niche using the page in the signature, also I started finding viral videos to post on the facebook page. I saw that videos get more views/interaction than pictures so I'm gonna post 1 video per day in addition to the 3 pictures. I use the videos to post in reddit also. I found a couple of subreddits, but I'm still testing with it.

    I continued with pictures and videos on groups, commenting on popular pages, posting videos on reddit and built 10 karma points and managed to connect the Instagram account also.I posted some pictures already and started following people. I also posted a little bit on a forum placing the page in signature but idk if this had any effect. I also found more content around here and also built a database with content already. I plan to stream a movie or some documntary on facebook when I hit the 1000 likes goal to increase the reach even more. I am pleased with the response on the page and with the likes I got without any ad until now. Ok let's talk numbers:
