    Hey everyone,

    so I started reading here like a month ago now and I love everyone who gives his knowledge for free to everyone. Thanks and great respect to these people. I learned much and did few (exactly kind of nothing).

    I started a IG account last month in the fitness niche -> motiviational and funny pictures + videos.

    Yeah, the start was kind of slow but now I am gaining like +100 follower a day with Instagress which is nice.

    So from now on I have ca. 1600 follower (with a great upward trend).

    I want to share my journey with you, because I am not very good in the whole webmaster thing and do not really have the time to generate content each day for my website to keep the traffic and SEO stuff going. (Yeah, I am still kinda noobish in this field)

    So I specialize in social media. First of all I started like I said with IG. When I reached the 2000 mark I will open up a FB account and perhaps a twitter account.

    I am considering to buy FollowLiker, because I guess I will rebuy Instagress every month. But the adventage of Instagress is, that I don't need any PC Hardware, which has to be online fulltime for the running of the bot. Also I am still not making any gain of this project. So I am still thinking about that...

    So here is my status:

    Instagram:
    • 1600 Follower
    • <10% of Follower give Likes (~130-150/Picture)
    • <1% of Follower make Comments (10-15/Picture)

    Yes, I am still a noob and sorry for my bad english skills sometimes. I am not a native speaker, so I beg your pardon. :)

    I have a open mind for any kind of tips, advices or something like this.

    Good luck. Social media is a great idea to start and get your feet wet. Don't get discouraged if it takes you longer then you think it will to reach your goals, but once you do you will be that much happier.

    Goodluck with the journey! I started likeyou with instagress. Now I am using followliker. The good thing about followliker is ypu have so much advanced iptions and customization options.
    Its really better than instagress. Altough instagress is super easy to setup. With Followliker its also easy but u need to read their guide good.
    You dont need an extra pc to let it run 24/7. I am running it on a window VPS. Its an virtual computer u cam access on your own pc. If u turn off your pc. The virtual pc will stay on 24/7 no shutdowns. It costs only 8 dollars a month. But u will need to buy private proxies.

    Fitness niche is a evergreen health subniche so how does funny motivational and funny pictures + videos fit into your niche? It seems like you aren't focusing on one type of audience of the niche, and this would be why you aren't more successful with followers. If this is your spin, what type of audience are you looking to get for your instagram account? If you are thinking fitness followers that want to be inspired then get rid of the funny pictures and videos. If you are looking to cheer up fitness followers then get rid of the motivational quotes and focus on funny things. You get what I mean, because later on when you want to monetize this account, you'll get a more laser targeted response than a broad niche.

    yes thx for this. I use only funny posts. I've never post any motivation haha :D I am just a "funny fitness" site.

    And I am following other users of larger fitness sites and also users who uses some hashtags like fitness etc.

    Today I bought some followers from the marketplace so I have 2.9k Followers for now. But this was only an experiment to see if this service is good, but this doesn't make much sense, because these followers aren't active enough. Will stay with the follow4follow strategy

    What are your Instagress settings?
    Are you doing comments and likes or both?
    How frequently do you update your account with images?
    best of luck for your journey

    If you notice the op was expecting great conversions in the fitness niche (spammed to death by sexy pics with cpa offers) when they should focus instead on perhaps gaming or funny videos niche with amazon affiliates or branding themselves as a new "authority" youtube channel.
