    Hi, I'm aandryyy (18 years old) and I follow BHW since december 2014.
    Three days ago i started my Instagram journey in order to sell some t-shirts :)
    I created a new account of instagram but i hadn't any number to verify that account so i patched the instagram app to not ask me the phone number :D (no ban for now)
    DAY 1 160$
    I uploaded like 100 photos with the link in the description with a lot of repost. every photo with the same description. I also get promoted by a fb page of a friend of mine.
    DAY 2 185$
    like day 1 I uploaded the same 100 photos with the same link in description. In this day i had like 15/20 like each image and I gained like 45 follower.
    DAY 3 10$
    The old t-shirt campaign ended so i created two new in the same topic. I think the topic was not so hot like at the start but i sold a pair of a new shirt. :/
    DAY 4 10$
    After this thread in BHW i'm going to "work" (private lessons, reps at 10EUR/h). Then I will create like 6/7 new t-shirt in a new niche and start uploading images :) (i will try also to get some sale from FB)

    EARNINGS 370$ FOLLOWER 72 POST 318

    I will daily update the post!

    Sorry for the bad english, I'm not a native speaker :( If you have something to ask feel free, i will make the best to answer you!

    PS i also used a temporary (20minutemail) email to make this instagram account :)
    I only used my phone to make all the things, from design to upload with public WiFi and my 4G

    That's some good earnings mate.
    Are they your brand of T-shirts or some sort of affiliate thing?

    Awesome numbers, well, when it comes to your earnings that is...

    The followers, however, they could use some boost. :)
    But looks like that's not your focus, are you using hashtags?
    Seems like this works really well for you, can't believe it actually!

    No followers and you still managed to get sales? How?

    You don't need followers to get likes/views on your photos.
    Use a bunch of appropriate #s and you're set.

    Getting views and likes using # is one thing but getting actual sales without any followers for the page? Sounds too good to be true....

    Immagine.png i will upload also the paypal balance when they charge me! :)

    I use only # ... But it was a very hot topic! :) i restart to sell the first t-shirt (the 350$) and already done 10$ in the last 5 minute without upload any immages.

    ( i don't know ho to quote :( ...) I use a site like teespring but now i will use a site like SunFrog where I can open a "shop".


    PS 'Top Posts' in hashtag searches has disappeared
