Hi , I've got quite a good experience with Instagram, been in the game for 3 years, and altough I haven't played with it very much lately (I still need to catch up with everything), I've still been following it for a lot of time. My main niche where I've always tried to grow my accounts was mostly regarding Adult material (not any porn or nudes, just very very softcore stuff). I've probably experienced every side of it, I've tried Fitness, Babes, Models, Gay, Pornstars, Celebrities.. and even tried Hentai and Ecchi. So after a few years playing with it I'll be honest and I'll tell you that unless you're willing to put effort in this niche then you're not gonna gain anything, and I hope that knowing some of this stuff will help you, because I've seen and been collaborating with so much people trying this road and failing a lot. If you get big you really can cash in a lot.. but if you tought this was an easy ride, well... think again. Why? - Instagram has "strange" rules: You might be doing everything fine, not breaking any rules and not even botting, but yet find your accounts getting banned over and over even for no apparent reason. While there will always be accounts with 600k+ followers rocking half or totaly nude pictures of breasts and even real sex videos without any problems. Unfortunately the only way to be 100% safe and avoid ban for "nude" content is to change niche! - You will get reported (a lot more): Get ready to choose extremely wisely your pictures, especially in the very beggining, try to play it uber safe, even the smallest nude dot of a female body might trigger the ban hammer if enough people report you (and yeah that number is not high either.. ). Remember that there will always be a lot of people reporting you because the material you post will be seen as "immoral" (angry ladies and horny guys that don't obtain anything from you.. are just an example). - Be prepared to lose everything, again and again: You will never be safe in this niche, you'll never know when another warning will strike again on one of your pictures even for almost no reason. You can play it safe as much as you want, but remember you'll always be risking a ban. Also due to Instagram rules, you'll know when one of your pictures will be removed, but you'll never be able to know how many more you can risk.. the warning counter depends on many things, such as: account age, followers, likes. The competitors from the same niche will oftenly report you as well. PS: I've also experienced that with some old accounts that counter got "resetted" over time.. but nobody knows how it really works. And since there is not any real way to reset it, you'll find very sad when your journey will be limited after you get a strike. - The content is "hard" to find: Altough it's very easy to find thousands of thousands of pictures to scrape from bigger accounts. That's a terrible idea, there are so many accounts sharing the same stuff that nobody will find your content interesting, it's literally everywhere. So it's really hard to find good content to share, and high quality pictures are a must. If you are having a hard time understanding what material to share, try to keep asking yourself "what material would make somebody wanting to open Instagram and to check it instead of just opening the browser ?" - Engagement is really low (...I mean REALLY low!): If you post pictures of other models your followers will feel very distant from you and there will always be a really really low engagement rate. You can spend just few seconds to see that to get a "good" ammount of likes you will need to have a HUGE ammount of followers, you can easily find accounts with 500k-1mil followers that have low ammounts of likes. (like 1-2k per pic). Differently from other niches, in this one getting 1k likes per pic is A LOT. There are niches out there where you'll be able to get 1k-2k likes even with 20k-30k followers. - It's hard to monetize: If you're looking for an easy way to monetize it, you'll find it hard because a lot of networks won't allow adult niches. The best way to monetize it will always be trough shoutouts, but this means that money will only come very late, and there will always be a high risk of losing everything in few moments. - You'll might have to get into E-whoring: You all know what e-whoring is and how low it is. So be prepared to tell lies and to act as a lady just to increase your engagement rate by a small ammount. (Bare in mind that this is a double-edged sword, horny guys will follow you rapidly but they will always report you very easily if they don't obtain anything from you). Anyway E-whoring will always be the easiest way to grow in this niche, because horny guys will be a lot more interested in following you.. than an account that just posts scraped pictures. - Tags are hard to find: I will share with you few of the tags I've came across after some research that you MUST avoid at any cost: Code: #indianteen #pörnö #sëx #cüm #hörny #nüde #cöck #fuckmypussy #dmmeimbored #kik #seducción #püssy #pörn #hörny #pörnö #sëx #dmmeimbored #hörny #cöck #cüm #indianteen #kik Altough these tags is where most of the horny guys have their home and where it's easy to bot. NEVER ever use them for your botting or for your pictures, there's nothing more dangerous than a bunch of horny guys. Firstly you will get hundreds of dick pics in your DM, then they will report you when you don't reply, so you'll really easily get banned soon after. (I had the terrible idea to try this on a 3 years old account). Personally the best working tags and most safe that I've found are those regarding Code: #boudoir and other sub-tags. - Growing is not easy: A lot of guys that will follow you, usually post nudes and this means that sooner or later they will get banned. And this equals in constant follower drops. The best and fastest way to grow is to reach up for other people and try to collaborate to grow together. So if you're kinda new to this niche, bare in mind that it will be really hard to grow it succesfully with Instagram. I've managed to do it, but it took me a lot of time and I'm still searching ways to monetize some of my accounts (for example: the Hentai & Ecchi Accounts.. I'm really struggling to monetize them). I'm saying this just because if I had known this things before going in I wouldn't have "wasted" so much time with this niche. There are so many other good niches! Don't let yourself get impressed or start dreaming when you're looking at those huge accounts in this niche that are cashing in a lot.. because it's HARD and RISKY to get there. I'd personally suggest you to try something else because you'll find success a lot more faster and more safely and you will not have to worry about so many things. But do whatever you want These were just a bunch of suggestions and I hope you'll not need to experience all this stuff over and over again as it happened to me. You will really need luck in this niche.. so I wish you good luck if you're willing to go with this! Best Regards, Jaymien.
