    Hello everybody! I'm going to intodruce me first to let you know who I am. I'm a fifteen year old from Sweden (We say that I'm sixteen because my birthday is in a month). I have recently been lurking around the forum and something which caught my eyes was the way to monetize on Instagram. I have been looking around for days how to grow and monetize an Instagram account so I would gain knowledge how to do and how it's possible to monetize. Here is my plan.​

    The plan!
    My plan is to make an instagram account in the begining so I could gain experience before I would buy a bot which would make it autopilot. I made an Instagram account three days with a niche that I really enjoy. In those three days I have been growing it manually by postin 2-3 pictures a day. I currently have 534 followers which I got by the follow/unfollow method. In the future I will make more accounts with other niches and grow them by using a bot when I can afford it.

    Why "Instagram"?

    I have been using Instagram for maybe three years now. It's the most growing social network and it got over 80 million daily users. It is a very good social network which is also simple to use.

    How will I monetize the accounts?
    It really depends on the account. I will sell shoutouts, affiliation marketing and CPA. I will monetize my first account by affiliation and sell shoutouts.

    What is my goal?
    My main goal is to make money and gain experience within IM. I don't have any goal for the amount of followers, it's endless.

    How often will I update?
    In the start I will update daily and in the future I might start update weekly.



    Followers: Day 1 - 191 - Day 2 - 444 - Day 3 - 534 (I'm on my third day).

    Uhhh. I unfollowed around 1000 people within a hour and now it seems that I can't follow people via the Instagram app but I can follow other people via crowdfire. Does this mean that I was follow banned and if yes, how will I know for how long?

    I unfollowed around a thousand people today and I only lost seven followers. My followers are VERY active with commenting and likes. I plan to start monetize once I reach 20k.

    ​I haven't been so very active the last two days because I found a new money-making method which makes great money. I will try to get more active!
