    For past 2-3 months i was reading info about Instagram and was testing things myself to see what works and what not (was growing 5 accounts with different settings, etc.)

    Now i think im ready to start my Journey.

    Goal - reach 10 million followers by the end of 2017. Maybe ill succeed maybe i wont but for sure im not giving up. Someone on BHW replied to thread that if someone says you cant do something then you have 2 options: 1 - apply to mcdonalds or 2 - prove them wrong.

    I picked these niches (and reasons for picking them) for my accounts:
    • digital art (i love art, there is no other reason, also i think it would be easy to shoutout other artists who have patreons and so on)
    • gaming (virtual reality becoming more popular better start now than later)
    • hipster (didint found more niches i would like so i picked this generic one where i can post almost anything)
    • girls (i see boobs i press like, probably will be easiest to grow)
    • luxury (so people would accept me into engagement groups later)
    • matcha tea (i use it and i like it)
    • history/mythology (i forgot)
    • vaping (would be easy to monetize later)
    • weed (easy to grow)
    • before/after (should be great engagement)
    Like you see i picked a lot of different niches, but im afraid if i would have picked only 1-3 i would not be interested/motivated as much as they could become boring for me, i want accounts that i would love to manage and all would have different theme and i can't imagine doing this with 10 accounts from same niche for the long run.

    Will try different account growing methods starting with follow/unfollow until accounts reach at least 10k followers. Also planning to post weekly reports (on sundays probably).

    Day 1 report:
    Total followers: 27985 (from those 2-3 months of testing things)
    Total money earned: 0$

    Hi op, shadow ban is popular nowadays. How would you deal with that?

    Good luck on your journey I hope that you do good. Do you have any tips on growing instagram account, i have one in the dogs nice about 4500 followers. I do this to gain more followers than my friend (He has 18k).
    Is it important to post more than once a day?

    I dont really know how ill be able to deal with that when im using follow/unfollow at the beggining. From my experience with 1 of my account which got shadow banned (posts wasnt showed at the explore page and tags), that it was unbanned after 1 week of inactivity. Also always use different 10-20 tags per posts and different captions

    Firstly you want to follow real followers and not bots and since its really hard to find which one who, you should also add some other criterias when following people (not only who liked/commented specific page photos). Follow people who not only commented/liked specific picture but also posted in 5 last days, have 50-500 followers, have 50-500 followings

    Im not really sure, the only problem i had is that pictures is not posted with tags/caption which i fixed resizing all pictures to 1080 x 1080. If ill ever need to make a post on specific time (lets say for shoutout) ill create new project that is only for that specific image post then pause account on my main project and run new project at specific time to post that picture

    Follow/unfollow method until account will reach 20k followers so they would start grow a bit organicaly by themselfes, then start to monetize, money earned from monetization will be spent for shoutouts, powerlikes etc. I want this journey to be funded by itself and im spending money right now only for VPS/proxies/sim cards and i bought 20 additional fresh accounts in case some accounts would get banned right now so i could replace them immediately.

    If you planing to make generic fashion niche then i think its not worth it, but if you are more specific like concentrate on leather jackets niche or steampunk fashion niche then go ahead

    They were simply just banned, not sure why since others accounts are warming up nicely, one is getting 200% engagement rate: 100 followers 500 followings 170-230 likes per picture (i know it will decreace with time but still it looks promising)
