    So to start this off, the reason I can't use mass planner or something like that is because I'm a minor so I don't have a way to purchase it online. I want to try social media marketing while ik young so I can get experience with it for later in my life. What strategy can I use to grow an Instagram account (I'm still looking at niches but figured I'd get this out of the way) without automation?

    Thanks. Honestly I didn't even know it was a viable career until around a 2 weeks ago someone on Reddit sent me to this sight and I've read so much. Figured at 14 I am probably as up to date with technology as I'll be in most of my life so why not start now.

    Honestly if you are just getting started and have no way to invest in you account it can be kind of hard to get off the ground.

    If I were you I would try and get some initial growth using the same method you would with Massplanner or Followliker, but just doing it manually (no need to purchase). After you grow a few thousands followers you will start to grow more organically at which point you could focus on growing by producing premium content, shoutout for shoutouts, ranking in hashtags, hitting the explore page etc.

    You can grow without any automation by
    1) Produce AMAZING content

    2) Have a Narrative. A brand, visual narrative of your feed. In essence a soul. So many luxury millionaire feeds and none of them have any soul whatsoever.
    They think posting picts of Swiss watches is luxury. Luxury is about knowledge. Serge Mouille ceiling lamp cost more than a f... Rolex Submariner.
    In terms of watches, a Lange and Sohne Datograph has miles of class over a dozen Breitlings.
    A vintage Defender 90 is way more lustworthy than a Lamborghini. But that is my point. A Narrative. I'm just using luxury as an example as there are so many dimwits with zero taste
    and knowledge. Same thing with architecture. Architecture feeds and they don't even know the name of the architect, the designer or year built.

    3) Network with people in similar niches. There is an absolute f... difference between an Influencer and a Influential.
    There is a guy named Heaton who has 11K followers. yes, Eleven Thousand followes. He is more influential than any 100K luxury feed on this board. If you have to ask, then you don't know.
    When you get invited to Basel World for exclusives for luxury brands with 4-10K followers, you are influential.

    Just an example.


    Combined, if you know your stuff, your content, product compelling content, you can grow.

    2 cents - Youre young and got no cash. Look at a niche that youll like, do some research on the trends and how IG works. Try to make original and unique posts about the niche (content). Hashtag it. Start hustling - follow and unfollow like crazy. Watch your account grow. See the results. DM some of the other people in the network. Take their 2 cents. Pivot or stay the path. Whatever way youre acct is going to grow unless you suck then test and retest until you get it right.

    I used to be in your exact situation no money to invest no real good starting point to earn money to invest. I think the best way to starting off is get into affiliate marketing and work as a reseller for others. I'm sure that a few people on this forum will enjoy you getting them more sales for them and they will give you a small conmission on your sales and hard work. Is there anyway I can contact you ? like skype? if so my skype is: darkfenoprod

    You can do this by producing unique contents that could go viral. Do that and you'll have followers in no time.

    I was thinking about getting into a theatre/acting type niche is that viable? It's something I know a lot about so I think I could make it quality. If not that I was thinking fashion but I know that's an over saturated niche.

    it's simple, by doing "automation" by yourself, be very active on instagram, don't go over limits and you will grow well
