    Hi,

    I have finally decided on my niche. It's a sub-niche of the quotes niche. This means, all my posts are going to be quotes. Technically, Twiter is for this kind of stuff and IG for pics, but I will give it a go anyway.

    Of course, I will try to differentiate & add my own spin (watermark, specific quote layout, font etc), as I've read that original content (or one that appears original) helps the account grow quicker with better engagement.

    I have FollowLiker (which I have never put into practice). I will study the guides on it. My Q is, how do I actually begin ? I don't want to buy fake followers, but will it not be extremely difficult to get the ball rolling with 0 followers? I don't want to buy shoutouts etc for the time-being.

    Any advice on the very first stages of growing new accounts would be super appreciated.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    The best advice I can give you is that if you are going to use programs like FollowLiker, be cautious or you'll just end up getting your account banned. For the First month or two I would just advise you to do it manually. Good luck!

    With any botting software and a new account, work your way up to the recommended settings in about a month.

    Then use followliker to help you grow your followers.

    Good luck OP.
    I tried that kind of stuff too but can't be patient enough to see it grow.

    use follow liker to follow "user's who liked" someone in your niche with a lot of likes at their posts.
    it give you really great like/followers ratio.

    My advice is you must be patient and don't get to fast to monetize it

    Engage with your audience! Respond to any comments on your photos and like back if people are in the same niche. Like photos within your sub-niche and perhaps within the broader niche as well.

    Inspirational quotes do get attention, but some of them have been done to death. Is there a way to compete with others in the niche?

    I will say that the first step is well done. With a niche, I do believe you can now start working towards achieving greater things. One thing with IG is that you need to be consistent in your posting so that you can be in a position where a target audience anticipate for your post. This can be achieved by you being able to post on a daily basis. Be sure to also create a discussion around the quote so as to engage people and tag as many as you can.

    Great feedback, I appreciate it all. I will start off today with creating 10s of posts on Photoshop (quicker than looking for typography apps) and then load them onto my phone and then I can finally hit it off on Instagram. I spend some time on public transport, so dong this way at the beginning seems ok.

    PS. I am not in the motivation niche.

    You can bot even on first day.. but do the amount a normal user would do.
    eg. 5 days week / 8 hours day, 20 likes 20 follows..
    let those account warm up.
    dont put any affiliate links in there.
    IG, as facebook, follow those.
