    Hey whatsup guys! So i've been reading some methods and i already tried some but without any success, but there was one that got my attention, and it was instagram! So, my main goal is to reach minimum 50$ a week without any investment! That's right, i will try to do this manually.

    For that i will need to:
    Post daily (2 or 3 photos)
    Reach 10-20k followers and then do shoutout for shoutout with another instagram that uses the same niche as i do;
    I will probably turn into more 10k and after that it will be more easy to escalate;
    Reach 100k followers
    Start selling shoutouts and probably do giveaways with locked up content.

    I'm only using one account so i can give my full attention to it

    Current Followers: 154

    STATUS: I got a god damn block!! I started following many people in a row and since yesterday i cannot follow a single person! I think i got a 24h ban, i really hope so it was only a temporary ban =/

    Yeah be very careful with following to many people. Be sure you have long delays and don't do more than a specific amt each day. Account age and your current amount of followers plays a big role on the number of actions you should do per day as well. Take it slow and steady. Analyze the people in your niche and only follow the people who are going to aid in boosting your followers, traffic, and sales.

    Hi there!

    I built my account manually and here's what I'd suggest -
    1. Follow 100-150 people every hour. Do this for as long as possible,all day. This way you'd see at least 500 followbacks a day and you'll grow pretty fast.
    2. Start unfollowing after the 2nd day of Following people (give them time to login to instagram and check their feeds)
    3. Use at least 1 third party app except the stock Instagram app to follow/unfollow people. - I would use Instagram and Instafollow(on play store) to Follow people. You can use Instafollow to also check for people who aren't following you back and you can unfollow them.

    I did the above for 4 days manually and was at 2.1k followers.
    Good luck man! :)

    I remember getting Temporary bans while unfollowing like 500 people at once. Never got banned from Following people. Before starting off I let the new account age for a day.
    For the first 2 days follow 75-150 people per hour. About 10-15 every 5 minutes.

    I was actually managing two Instagram accounts. Like sister accounts. One managed to hit 2.1k and the other 500 followers. I started both at the same time but my 2nd account got more engagement so I spent more time on that.

    But yes,it's possible to manually build 2 accounts to 2k within a week. :D

    Good luck--hope to see you scale up and execute.

    Do you think you'll switch to a bot for more breadth (multiple pages across various niches), or are you going to stay manual and build a brand?
