Introduction Hey guys and gals! Welcome to my 30 day journey with Instagram. In essence, this is going to be a case study. I will update at least once a day for 30 days. Here was my inspiration to document this. The goal of this journey is to show that you can start to grow an audience in a short period of time. By the end of the 30 days, I may not have a gigantic following but I definitely will have lots more than I do right now. Now a little bit about the current condition of my account. My account is a year old and has gone through 5+ niche changes. Today (Just for this), I switched it to a â€˜foodporn' niche account. Right at the time of writing this, the account is at 945 follows and I am following 994 people. Starting Statistics There are 4 posts, 945 followers, 994 followings. For a post one hour old I get around 20 likes... Obviously this number does not mean much but I am sharing it for the sake of INFORMATION!! Daily maintenance? The account will be open on my phone and throughout my day when I am at school. I will post foodporn pictures, market viral gift card giveaways, like/comment on stuff. Some days I will post 2 pictures, some days I will post 20. So I am going to be spacing things out throughout the day. Even though there is about only 1% chance of the account being banned; I think the best way is to space posts and interactions out to slowly milk-the-followers. What are my Predictions? I am not going to predict anything because the sole purpose of this journey is to see how high I can go in a relatively short period of time. Where will I get pictures? Well, I just scraped 1000 food pictures from niche related accounts. You can find the scraping tool here. How will I monetize? Of course I will monetize gradually throughout the month but the income will not be one of the statistics updated. However you will see some numbers here and there. I will use CPA to lock participation in ACTUAL giveaways. I do not feel like scamming people this time around. ...all with NO BOTS! 100% manual, baby.
