    Hope you all are having a great day! :)

    Before reading this thread, please update yourself with my previous thread at the link below:
    How I Made $53 Today on Instagram

    I've started a "Part 2" thread for this method as with this thread I'm going to be focusing more on providing specific advice and methods on how to profit from IG rather than just posting updates on my personal page(s).

    However, I will still be updating the thread with the progress made on my own accounts.

    If you've read the first thread I posted, you will know that I currently manage two pages. One page is in the "Computer Parts & Hardware" niche and my second is in the "Weed" niche. These niches were chosen based on the fact that I felt they were easy niches to grow a page in and because I have some interest in these areas.

    The last update I provided you guys on the stats for my "weed" page was on April 18th (9 days ago). At that point, my page had just under 1,750 followers and it has grown quite rapidly since!

    Take a look at the current stats (this page was started on April 10th):

    I can't wait to see where this page is at in just a few weeks!

    Remember, high-quality posts are "always" going to result in better engagement and be sure to use at least 10 hashtags that are relevant to your posts. Avoid hashtags such as "#like4like" or "#follow4follow". These are spammy hashtags and won't drive you targeted followers who will continue to follow your page and like your content.

    I've quickly learned that engaging with your audience is a highly effective way to maintain relationships with followers. If you can, always respond to comments and let your followers know that you pay attention to what they say.

    Take a look at the stats for this photo that I uploaded to the page not even an hour ago:

    IG.png

    As you can see, the engagement is very high for a page with only 4,000 followers and it hasn't even been an hour. In fact, since taking the screenshot above, this picture has received 30+ more likes and another 7 comments! :D

    If you guys have any questions, let me know below I'll do my best to answer you all. I'll continue to update this thread regularly with updates. :)

    In? I'm not selling or providing a service here.

    By "show me how to catch the fish", I'm assuming you mean "show me how to get followers"?

    Update:

    A couple of my posts made it to the top posts for my targeted hashtags which really helped to BOOST the followers on this page. This just goes to show that using targeted hashtags play an important role in growing not only your followers but "targeted" followers.

    These statistics are provided by Websta.Me.

    Currently following and unfollowing around 400 profiles per day. I'm not using any automation tools for following, I spend about 45 minutes per day manually working on this account.

    For unfollowing, I use a mobile app called Unfollowers.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Looks promising.

    - Roughly how many products do you have on your site?
    - What is you ratio of promotional vs non-promotional posts?
    - By the stats you shared, it looks like your targeting is decent. What tactics you use for growth, follow/unfollow, liking etc. ?

    I use Websta.me for the stats.

    Was checking my impressions for this week and was shocked to see that my posts received over 100,000 views just this week alone!

    On my first page, I currently have around 400 products listed.

    Roughly, 7 out of every 10 posts are promotional posts.

    The stats you're seeing above are for my second page which I do not have a website up for nor I have attempted to monetize this page yet. Engagement is as high as it is because the users I'm following are ultra-targeted resulting in the page getting followers that are interested in the content I upload.

    Currently following around 350-400 people per day and doing 50-75 likes per day. Most of my growth I'd contribute to being in the "top posts" for my hashtags.

    I'm at 5,200 followers and am averaging around 800 likes per picture with 20+ comments. One upload I made a few days ago received 140+ comments.
