    Hey all, i decided to start an Instagram journey since i've seen many around here.
    I've just made the account and followed around 65 people and got followed by 12.
    I'm a complete beginner in all this and i wanted to share my story with you and to motivate all beginners like me not to give up on this.
    So here are the stats:
    Followers: 12
    Following: 65

    Good Luck with your Journey.

    So how did you pick your niche for this ?
    Did you do any research ?
    How do you plan to earn from it ?
    Using phone or something like Gramblr ?

    Thanks for the kind words!
    I picked my niche due to previous experiences and some past research
    Yes, i've done some research on both here and Google.
    I plan to earn using CPA and probably shout outs.
    I'm using an android tablet, doing all the work manually.

    I haven't been able to work a lot today due to personal issues but i will try to pursue this as much as i can. Doing all this manually is really exhausting...

    Are you planning to add more accounts in the future? Yes, doing it manually is exhausting and time consuming. You might even get tempted to stop your journey. Just be consistent and keep updating us! Good luck!

    Are you following the followers of popular accounts in your niche? Try to follow those who commented and liked their most recent photos instead. They are the ones active.

    I noticed that i started gettting much more likes using certain hashtags, so i will continue using them as much as possible. I currently post 2-4 pics a day, will try to stay consistent!
    Thanks to the community for the support and i'm always open to suggestions on how the speed up this process and i'd love to hear all your personal experiences! :)

    A piece of advice. Follow the likers method is not going to work well. Most of the time, you will be liking those bot likers that will not follow back. Those that will actually follow back are those that post interactive comments (instead of those one liner or one word comment).
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Try this : go to the big accounts in your niche and follow their latest followers ( skip no profile pic and profiles that look like a company )
    After following recent ~20 move to another big account, repeat til u hit 60 limit per hour ..

    @mrbanks201 I assume you figured out how (by clicking "xx.xK followers"
    And since you're doing it manually just follow private users too to make the process a little faster!
    Try this and you'll most likely see a better followback ratio

    Follow at least 500 perday (1000 will be much better :) ). Like, and comment on niche related post... Used #followforfollow f2f, likesforlikes etc. To grow faster.
