    Over the last year

    I have spent hundreds of hours

    On the platform known as Instagram.

    I've built multiple pages and sold them for profit.

    And have helped people go from gaining 50 followers a week to gaining over 400k in a few months no bots completely organic this means never run the risk of being banned.

    I myself run a network of 130k followers and have seen many people fail when it comes to growing a account which is profitable/

    I know from first hand experience it ain't as easy as just posting photos and profiting.

    So go ahead and ask any question will love to help you!

    First you must choose something you're passionate about as posting content gets tiring if you don't love the images.

    Second is network with big accounts try and get them to join a engagement group give value before asking though.

    A engagement group is hub for people in the same niche as you to like and comment on each others posts this is how the huge accounts like sommer ray and supreme patty grow their following rapidly.

    When people like and comment on your posts if will go to their followers accounts explore pages. So if you get a page with 100k followers to like your post you can reach their followers and if you have 32 100k accounts well you're laughing you'll grow rapidly like this.

    Also post viral content so look for posts that have more likes than usual for that account.

    Why am I getting 20k accounts reached, but only gaining like 7 followers from the post. And 18k of the 20k is from hashtags I dont understand why i'm not making it to the explore page.

    Im using engagement groups/ Infiniticore pods which is niche based and others.


    Also if I began brand new account with 0 followers / 0 followings how would I do it? start with 6 pictures bio/picture
    maybe follow/unfollow? any advice

    You either need better viral content, better call to action to get them to comment or like example, like if you love this photo. You may need more people in your engagement group to like your post faster.

    You are fighting a losing battle if you don't follow instagrams rules you are fucked.

    Because Instagram will shadow ban your account so you won't be seen by any of your followers so that means no traffic as you'll be hidden from the explore page hashtags anything you can think of you won't show up anywhere.

    I've ran power likes before and gained around 800 followers daily.

    You have to make sure the accounts who are giving you the power likes are only liking max 50 posts a day the less the better as you'll be pushed only to their followers explore pages if they are only liking yours.

    Also check their engagment that it is legit.

    If you've got the money it will definitely benefit you having power likes. But if you're getting them from sites which do like rounds as well they're usually trash because everyone just puts dud accounts in them.

    I manually follow 500 account per day and get 50-70 follow back.
    I started to grow my account 3 month ago (exactly 2 months), and now my account have 2.4k follower (up to the present time), each of my post only 40-70 (from the follower and from hashtag - I understand they use bot to like and it have no value at all) like and no comment. About content, I usually choose content from large pages in the same niche and post on my page (I only select content that has great interactivity). I have some question:
    1. Is my follow back rate too small? - and 2.4k follower after 2 months is it too slow?
    2. How to increase the amount of like and comment in my post? - where is my problem? (time to post, source of content or quality of content...).

    Hi Jacob, thank you for your time and input!!! I'm new here but been reading so much and trying to figure a Path/actions/direction to build my person (business account though) for my model photography business on IG. I started the account I believe Feb 2016 but didn't post. Then this year started to post my pics slowly But I didn't know a darn thing about IG in that I would post and forget which is a no-no.
    Folks that now me and see my pics via in person or my website say they love the work.
    I've posted (all original my stuff) 97 posts. I only have about 140 followers as I haven't started to follow a bunch of others and like/comment.
    *My intention is to of course grow followers so I can get more quality models (been getting them from them DM'ing me) and be able to charge the usual $300 which is a deal in Colorado for what I do and give.

    *I was thinking 'maybe' to start over by deleting my posts (my original photos)/going out and searching the photographers I like and likeing/commenting/I guess start following their followers.
    *Build some followers / Then start reposing my work / pay for power likes or something (suggestions).
    I see folks having a lot of child accounts that they use to like/follow/promote their main account but just learned about that yesterday.

    PS, I would paypal you some $ for your time and direction as I truly love photography and really want to do this right and grow on IG but I am just now learning from this Awesome forum and folks input on here!

    Hello Jacob!
    At first thanks for your time :)
    You have any suggestions to create IG Accounts in high amounts manually?
    I dont mean email/proxy provider or something like this. Their I have my own sources. But I want to create between 20-30 accounts daily on my PC and I'm not sure how to hide that the fact, that any account is created on the same PC :D

    It's good that you take content from big pages because that is one of the keys of growing.

    Look for posts that have more likes than normal.

    I'd suggest you stop following unfollowing because what it does is alert Instagram and they will put a shadow ban on your account which means you'll be hidden from everyone left in the dark.

    You should instead contact big pages in your niche and try and get them into a engagement group when you message them give value!

    A engagement group is a hub for accounts to help each other grow this is how us big influencers grow we don't use any bots...

    So what i would suggest you to do is start a completely new account.

    As to instagram your account looks dead and will be hard to revive.

    Because it was made in 2016. You know you want to be a photographer i'm assuming you are in the girl model niche so you take pictures of hot girls?

    Once you've decided your niche go to top photographers have a look at their photos and steal their style for that image as Steve Jobs would say good artist copy, great artist steal.

    Then i'd message as many models as you can and tell them you'll shoot them for free then show them your work use testimonials if you can as there are a lot of creeps in that field. I follow a lot of models and a lot posts how there are dodgy people so show them you aren't dodgy.

    if you're as good as you say you're they'll think you are crazy doing the shoot for free and will absolutely jump on the offer.

    Network with people in your niche give value and message a shit load of accounts and ask them if they want to join your DM group when you do this you'll build a network of huge accounts which will boosts your posts to their followers explore pages when they like your post.

    Then post the photos to your account 1 photo a day for a personal account with hashtags that are related to your niche.

    Keep repeating what i said above and before you know it you'll be a celebrity in your niche.

    If you've got money to spend i'd suggest paying for power likes go to huge accounts in your niche and pay them to like your posts the tiny automated power like services usually have trash accounts that do nothing but inflate your ego with likes.

    P.S Never follow and unfollow as it KILLS your account. Big influencers like myself don't ever follow and unfollow we use what i call the "viral method" this is the method that allowed me to grow 25k followers in a month on a themed account and help a client who i consulted with gain 400k followers in a few months...

    Hi @Jacobcduckworth, Thanks for the post and the great value!
    So you created your own DM groups in your niches? or you joined existing ones and bring members in? What do you think about the existing Telegram groups? and Fuelgram? Thanks :)

    I following and unfollowing manually, it's very hard to be shadow ban. I have been shadow ban 2 times, because I unfollow too many accounts in one day (up to 1000 accounts); so my current strategy is follow 500 account per day and unfollow 500 account in another day.

    I have read some information on the internet about engagement group, they said that the amount of like and comments from engagement group are virtual and may cause the account to be shadow ban. What do you think about this?

    About using hashtag. Currently I don't have any strategies on how to use the hashtag. I simply use hashtag that have the most post related to my post. Of course, my post could not top the hashtag. Can you share about how to find and use your hashtag?

    Thanks Jacob for your post/input and time!! I was afraid of hearing 'start a new account':-( As my account name is exactly my photography business name and website. IF I were to try to revive this account, would deleting my most my photos/posts (have 97 original photos posts at moment), then start following/liking/commenting a lot of the followers/models of the top photographers I like/respect AND start one of igevolve.com's services per posting back some of those photos (as they are some of my best to date work but I keep getting better as I went to college 21 years ago for photograpghy and been doing a long time But changed about 4 years ago to model niche...all in good taste and that is what I want to show on my account is the newer stuff/direction ) along with new photos of course?
    I'm not clear on "i'd suggest paying for power likes go to huge accounts in your niche and pay them to like your posts"...does that mean research and find them and then DM them and ask what they charge/may I pay you to power like my photos? Sorry truly if that is a dumb question!

    Darn I am so sad at moment but lifting my head up and so glad I found BHW and the brilliance here!
