    Hello guys !

    I am a 21-year-old college student living in Bucharest, and inspired by the many threads on this forum, yesterday I decided to give birth to 2 instagram accounts.

    My main goal is getting to ~50k followers on both of them in a period of approximately 3 months without any monetization whatsoever.

    The first account's niche is vintage celebrity photos snatched by me off the internet+watermark - current followers 342
    The second account's niche is motivational pictures made by me in photoshop mainly with quote+picture+watermark - current followers 427

    My current method of play is follow+like+comment+ the three free days of instagress on the FAST setting + bought an extra 3 days for 1.99 (before finding out about FL which I'm planning on buying next week)

    I would VERY MUCH appreciate any kind of comment, advice, tip&trick from you guys as I am an utter noob in this scene. Been lurking these forums for some time.

    I will also try to update this thread daily.

    Wish me luck !!

    FL is a great investment for your purpose. When you get around 10k start doing shoutouts. That will help you gain followers very fast.

    Good luck mate :) You are looking good. I am not sure about the "Vintage celebrity photos" but about motivational photos are very good shot. You can later create some small vids about waight loss success too. Specially those type of motivational posts people always like and follow ( thats why i think ) & Those contents are all over tumblr . You only need to find and posts.

    Doing the usual work, manually following, commenting, liking throughout the day + instagress on high for the first account and on medium for the second account (got a 12h follow ban on the second account, probably manually following too many users)

    First account - 506 followers (+164)

    Second account - 620 followers (+191)

    Pretty happy about the results for now. Being pretty optimistic and I really hope I won't get sick of this instagram thing in the near future. I don't think I will quit this too soon because I am very optimistic about this, and also the fact that I will spend 70$ on FL will help me alot in my journey.
