    So I started a journey a while back
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/instagram-journey-to-1million-follow.762650/#post-7923889
    However there were a lot of complications, I got my account banned, then tried something else and ....
    I have gotten banned so many times on instagram I can't even remember, but I never gave up, At the end of that journey I started an account, this account had 2k followers some fake and some real from when I bought a shoutout from another account, It was the best shoutout I had ever gotten, If I remember right I got around 2k+followers from it.

    Anyways I changed my niche and started growing my account, I'm currently at 18.8k with really good engagement, I have made around 50$ from this account, the only problem is that I don't know what happened, I can't monetize, for example I put up an amazon associate product and I got 40 clicks in less that 4 hours that the video was up but none of them converted.

    I would really like to make some money so I can pay for hosting with that instead of myself, I will be paying for the hosting and domain either way anyways because I think my brand has a lot of potential so I'd rather keep the domain.

    I recently jailbroke my phone so I downloaded a tweak called autotouch and I've made a script for unfollowing but I can't find one for following, if anyone has a free one then feel free to share.

    I already have a subscription for 5 accounts on followliker, however I'd rather not risk a ban anymore so I'm doing things manually.

    My growth has been ok I gain 20-40 followers a day if I don't do f4f but if i do i get 100+.
    But I want to grow faster, so any tips would be appreciated, This account is pretty old, I think more than 2 years old so it helps a lot that I can follow a lot of people.

    Good luck with your journey
    But i suggest you to buy followers from some popular instagram accounts directly this is better than automatic tools in my opinion

    You mean shoutouts right? well I bought one a few days ago from a 270k account didn't help that much even though it had good engagement, but I have spent too much money till now without a return, I think 250$+ on hosting, theme, followliker, shoutouts ....... and I'm 15 so I have to keep asking my dad for it and I'd rather not, I'm trying to keep it free for now that's why I'm not buying that many shoutouts

    You can use automatic tools but don't spam your accounts with followers. I think you should follow some people manually to get a follow back , someone here shared his journey and say that " I will un-follow the accounts after some time then start following again to get new followers " and i think this way works good on instagram. you should know " you don't have to pay all the time " and waste your money, don't pay again if you can't collect the money you paid.

    Seems solid thus far. We want to see better stats though!

    I wish you best of luck, and never give up. Every time IG bans you, return stronger than you were previously. The moolah is there to be made.

    Thank you :D

    So I'm 30 followers away from 19k and I'm pretty sure I will reach that by tonight, I also made a snapchat, since it's blocked in the country I am right now It's really hard to maintain it, however it's doing well, I have around 15 friends I think

    So I was unfollowing for 2-3 days and then yesterday, I followed around 800people and got 270+followers from it, the followback ratio was really good, I think I finally found out the way to get more follow backs :D so happy, on 19.3k right now but around 30-40 away from 19.4k and I still havent started following, I will do that later today when more users are active :D
