    Hi!

    Three months ago I purchased FL and started 15 instagram accounts. 10 of them were fitness accounts and 5 were travel accounts. Today I passed 100k followers in total and I'm veyr happy but I have big problems with my fitness accounts.

    The 10 fitnessaccounts have 2-5k followers and engagementrate of 0,02 - 0,03%. I have tried different strategies and have always been following active users who have engaged followers. The followbackratio is horrible and I don't fell like I will ever be able to monetize them. I also don't want to pay proxys and other costs for these accounts.

    My travelaccounts have good followbackratio and engagement beteween 5-15% and I'm more or less doing the same.

    Is there any hope for my fitnessaccounts or should I give them up and focus on the travelniche which works extremly good for me right now?

    Thanks for all the help you have given me so far!

    Have you tried renaming them? Have you tried putting a hot girl (in workout gear) on your profile pic?

    Regarding engagement, have you tried posting on different times of day? Do you shoutout the 10 accounts to each other? Does your content grab attention?

    Otherwise, try converting them into a different subniche (like fitness girls or gym motivation) and see how that works out.

    If nothing works, then just shoutout your travel accounts in the captions to squeeze something out of them as you find someone to buy them.

    Thats the problem with fitness pages, most of the time you'll get a bad engagement rate

    My fitness accounts get amazing engagement off of just using hashtags. There are so many people running automation in the fitness niche that your content gets hit hard every time you post. So I would recommend using the top hashtags for fitness. It's actually really interesting to see how many fitness wannabes are running automation.

    Guys, and Ladies,

    It's 2%-3%. Not .02%. So on the fitness pages that have about 5K followers, that's about 150 likes per photo. Still drastically low.

    OP, you don't mention your FL settings. Post them here, it could be as easy as just tweeting a thing or two. You got nothing to lose right now.

    I have about 50 - 150 likes on each picture. Since I want to automate it for scaling I have about 400 fitnessquotes wich are randomized to the pictures. With these I use hashtags both popular and smaller ones.

    I follow about 400 mon,tue,wen and unfollow 350 thu,fri.sat.sun. Unfollow after 3 days. Only follow public users with profilepicutres who published a photo last 60 days. I'm using most settings which Justchillin is using in his followliker guide. And I won't increase the following since I plan on doing this longterm. I rather build slow and steady.

    I have take content from about 15 popular fitnessaccounts and have run them through my own program with rezies and renames pictures. I have checked the pictures and all are high quality fitness pictures but unfortunately not that nichespecific. I also have a weheartitscraper nad have pictures from there to. Most of the accounts are girlfocused and have names like "fitgirllife" "gymgirlsofficial" and so on. I do not do shoutouts between accounts, since the engagement has been so bad I haven't seen the point in doing it. All accounts have hot fitnessgirls in their profilepictures and some motivating fitness text in their bio.
