    Hello everyone!

    I have a 31k tattoo/babe account growing by 600-1000 a day, comparing that to my competitors (even ones with 500k+) I'm doing quite well.. But I want to do better.

    Does anyone have any methods to grow further?

    Thanks!

    Ah yeah sorry that would've been helpful to include haha.

    All I'm doing good is uploading 2-5 pics a day haven't monetized it at all.

    Are you testing? Different following, posting times? Better quality pics? More engaging with your followers?

    Well I post every 4-5 hours.. Times vary from whenever I wake up so I'm testing without realising I guess and noticed no change in time.

    All manual so I'm not following at all.

    I make sure I only upload the highest quality pics to maximise engagement

    I reply to all relevant comments and all messages

    How about joining some engagement groups?
    They are groups full of high-powered accounts that all like each other's photos. This helps you to hit the explore page and make your pages go viral.

    Why don't you do just a little automation then? Like some following on targeted accounts?

    And what about the tactic a lot of people use - tagging big accounts when you post?

    I've seen quite a few on here.. But surely the group will have all different niches in and wouldn't benefit me? Also have you had experience with any engagement groups before?

    I don't want to spend any money on this instagram project.. Want to say I've come off no worse off if it fails.. And how can that benefit me? I have seen many people do it but the pages I tag won't do anything about the tag?

    It's best with niche relevant accounts. of course. There's still a huge benefit to high powered likes from random accounts.
    In a large bomb round you can easily get 150+ likes on a photo, mostly from accounts with 20k+ followers. This alone can often be enough to make you reach the explore page.

    You're getting 600-1000 followers a day - kudos on that. What about engagement? How many likes per photo within 24 hours?

    Are you also liking others' photos? If so, how many likes do you do in 1 day?

    Is it better tag or using their hashtag?
