    I'm currently at just over 8500 and increasing about 1000 a month for the past few months (keeping in mind I don't use it all day) and I use hashtags and follow / unfollow... All manually. Account is aged but only start growing it recently.

    Targeting about 15K. Is this good or bad growth in terms of using that manual method?

    I'm in a tough niche and in terms of engagement currently average 15 - 20 comments per image and about 900 likes per image.

    By investing maximum 10 minutes a day, you should be able to get between 100 and 300 followers per day by following/unfollowing. So getting 1000 per months is extremely low.

    I'm trying to keep my following ratio down and not following too much at once. I'm currently following 500 people.

    Not all niches are easy as food or adult or attractive women etc.

    Thanks for the tip. At least it's a reality check.

    I'm having accounts in the pet, sports, and travel niche. I don't care about the following ratio in the start, it will take forever if you only go to 1:2 or whatever.
