    Hello all, this is my first post in BHW but I'm following this board since 2014, found a lot of great journeys and guides and I finally decided to take action. I'm going for the Instagram Journey, since it looks very profitable and not too expansive in terms of money and time.

    So basically here's what I have:
    1. One account in Niche [A], created 1 month ago.
    2. One account in Niche , created 1 week ago.


    Account 1 Stats
    Followers: 1900
    Following: 1200
    Post: 66

    Account 2 Stats
    Followers: 535
    Following: 795
    Post: 17

    Second account's engagement is decent, still better than account [A], and followback ratio is very good, I started following manually like a total of 1000 account in 6 days, and got 50% of followback. I think it's because of the niche, and cause I did it manually and targeted follows very well! Of course it isn't going to last, the % will drop for sure but I'm still happy for this good start!

    I am doing the following manually, and the unfollowing with Follow Liker. This is for 2 main reason:

    1) Doing the process manually helps targeting the right people. This way you can see their profile and choose the better account you think will follow you back.
    2) I tested FL for a week on a test account, it did something like 2000 follows and I got only 350/400 followers, it's not really worth it, since you will have to unfollow for the next 3/4 days just for a bunch of followers gained. I mean they could be much more if you do it manually.
    For me is better using FollowLiker when I'll have at least 10k followers, cause my account will look more authoritative to people's eyes.

    What I am doing now: Now my second account is unfollowing 350 a day, I post 3 HQ pic everyday on both account. When my second account will reach 0 followings, I will start following manually again until I reach 1000 followings again, running my FIRST account on FL to unfollow. This is cause I bought FollowLiker with a 1-Account License.. that sucks, but back in the days I didn't want to run multiple account. Meanwhile I am following with Account [A] to grow it.

    Hope you guys will follow me during this journey to 100k :)

    You can always upgrade your FL license once you start earning from your accounts. Good luck!

    following this. GL.
    have a question. you are following manually. so giving 700 follows a day, and you state you decide who to follow. it must be a freaking huge waste of time?
    so the question is: how much time daily you spend on following the needed audience?

    I just load the follower list of a big account in my niche, and visit the first 30 account on the list and search for this parameters:
    1. They have profile pic
    2. They posted some pics and are real account, not spam/bot account.
    3. They have more followings than followers, for example (FOLLOWERS 500 - FOLLOWINGS 800)
    The "followings" aspect is the one I care the most.
    Since I am a student and don't have a job, I have a lot of time to spend on IG; it doesn't take much though, I just log in once every hour and do the job :) 5 min of my time every hour it's nothing compared to what it can profit in the future

    I had 0 time today to work on this, since I had an exam, just kept unfollowing with the Account

    ACCOUNT [A]
    Followers: 1933 (+33)
    Followings: 1284


    ACCOUNT
    Followers: 551 (+16)
    Followings: 570

    In 2 days the second account will reach 0 followings, meanwhile I will focus on the first one trying to gain a decent amount of followers :)
