    Okay Ive just been browsing bhw for sometime and now i needed to take some action.

    I've decided to start with instagram. I'm starting an instagram account in fashion niche today. My first goal is to reach 10k followers for this account in 15-20 days. Then start selling shoutouts.What do you think, is it good to start selling shoutouts after reaching 10k followers?

    Then I plan to keep growing account until I reach 80-100k followers, I hope can do this in 3-4 months. I reinvest any money I get from shoutouts.
    Once I reach that amount, I think I can make about 4k

    I'll gain followers by the usual follow/unfollow method. I plan to follow 1000 people a day and like 1000 people in a day through hashtags. I'll hopefully get 400 followers a day that way. Is it too much follow/like? Should I do less like/follow?

    Once I get to reasonable amount of followers I'll do s4s.

    Goals for today
    Make instagram account
    Follow 1000 people
    Like 1000
    I'll probably make 2 more accounts and grow them similarly.
    All of this will be done manually, I dont have money for bots.

    Does everything sound alright here?

    Also if anyone knows any other ways to grows followers fast, please tell me. I'm new at instagram and dont know much.
    So really any advice from you guys would be appreciated :)

    Thank you for reading :)

    Well you should definitely focus on producing great content for your feed. There's no point on following thousands if they won't like back what they see. Actually, you should invest in a service like Instagress, dedicate just half a hour each day to tweaking it, and the rest to content creation plus product-services lookout too. You'll eventually have to sell something stronger than shootouts. Best of lucks! Following this journey now.

    Okay I need to ask something, when I follow private users (half of the accounts I find are of private users), do they count in daily instagram follow limit too?
    Also, how do I unfollow them later?
    Please answer these questions

    100k followers in 3 months? you'll be lucky if you hit that in a year+. not trying to discourage you, just dont expect it to be that easy.

    Yeah I know it's difficult that's why I'm gonna use 3 accounts. I'll make the other two accounts later and grow all the accounts together

    Try to check instagress, free for few days :)
    but if you utilize few days wisely, you'll get 2-3k followers for sure :)

    Don't forget to plan for future posting and ways to make users interactive, such as commenting and tagging their friends. So since this account is fairly new, post 2-3 times a day. Give a reason to have users follow you back.

    If your goal is trying to reach 80K-100K in less than half a year, then you should in no doubt invest a bit of money. If the reason is that you don't have a credit card to use or some bs like that. Go get a $25 prepaid card and start with that.

    If your content is legitimate and creative than your follow back ratio for every 10 followers will be 2-3 (20%, that's a realistic amount). So the last time I was active on insta for a niche of mine, the limit of following and unfollowing was 20 per hour, but it might be 160 per hour tho. But that's for you to test out. The limit on liking is 350 per hour. The limit for hashtags on each post is 30. So a guide for you to follow is this:

    1. On your niche topic, research top 30 tags on your niche and write them on your device's notes
    2. Scrape up a total of 30 pictures to post (that's 10 days worth of posts)
    3. Find the best times to post for your crowd. (So for east coast US that's 8:15 am, 12:30 pm, and 5:45 pm: morning before breakfast, after lunch time, and before dinner. Those times are recorded the best for my marketing. It will be different if your targeted crowd is somewhere overseas, but relatively the same hours)
    4. Depending what your test results, follow as much as you can per hour of the day. Follow X amount of people who follow Instagram accounts in your niche.
    5. Go through all the recent posts of the hashtags you choose to post, and like all the recent ones.
    6. Repeat all steps for the following week.


    Following this this guide will get you pretty darn close. And as for the $25 I mentioned earlier, you will be using that for either two options.

    1. If the method is gaining no followers to your account, go ahead and head to the marketplace and buy followers, with $25 you'll get somewhere around 3k followers or less.
    2. If the method is overwhelming you, sign up for instagress and spend some time tweaking the bot. $25 will give you 5 months of use, if I'm not mistaken.

    So it's time for you to get your hands dirty and busy, good luck OP and keep us posted.

    You have set some pretty high goals, so don't be discouraged if you don't achieve them within the time frame you set but remember to be persistent and it will work, i promise!
    Goodluck on journey, ill keep an eye out!
    And it is more than possible to reach 80-100k in 3-4 months if you know what youre doing.
    Don't listen to the guy saying "You'll be lucky to reach it in 1 year" ^ LOL
