Since I really enjoy being on this Forum and started to comment regularly, I figured I'd share my Journey with you guys. Maybe I can help some of you or get help when needed Started the Journey in October 2014 with little to no experience at all. Thought I'd post Pictures of what I love (nicheaccount, I post a specific type of animal or even more in detail: a specific breed). The Account had to grow somehow. I googled for help on Instagram and getting more attention. Found myself on websites like Fiverr etc.. I read something about SEO, micro websites, niche and absolutely had no clue what all that was about. So I spent time reading all this stuff and finally even created a website on this topic. I spent hours on designing the Website (wordpress helped a lot) and thought I could earn money through Adsense. But how to get Traffic? I thought if I'd get like 5-10k followers on Instagram, many people would visit my website and click on the Ads. Quickly I realized that this was stupid. I stopped working on the Website and concentrated more on the getting Followers-part. Found this Forum and read about some Bot which I dont mention now because I dont want anybody to think that im advertising stuff. However, I found it too expensive. There must be something thats´s cheaper and gets the Job done , I thought. I was right about the "cheaper" part and bought that bot for 30$ or something if I remember correctly. I started commenting and following other peoples Account (well the bot started to do it) and got some pretty nice results. I kept going and used the Bot for some Months, until I had like 9/10k Followers. At some point I stopped using the Bot, but kept posting a pictures regularly. One picture - every single Day. I wanted to grow organically, did not want to have Fake Followers. Hoped for the snowball-effect to kick in at some point. The result without using any bot was roughly 100 new Followers/week. The existing engagement at this point was nice though. This had to change. I want to reach 100k or even more sometime, so I have to do something. I had to invest in a better Bot. A Bot that would gain me more Followers and speed this up. Finally, exactly two weeks ago, I invested in this popular Bot (you guys know which one I mean). And what can I say. Wow. This Bot gets Shi*t done!! I started with 12,5k Followers two weeks ago. Today I am at 16,4k. The first few days, the Bot got me like 40-50 Followers/day. Then it increased. 100/day - 200/day... Right now im gaining 400 new Followers a day! But thats not all. Before I used this Bot, I got 700 likes after 24h on Average. This was 2 weeks ago. Right now my average likes increased to 1,5k and many many comments, which is amazing. I will keep you guys updated. If you want Information, feel free to ask. Remember, this is no Advertisement for any Bot. I am just sharing my experiences with you. Have a nice day!
