    Hello,

    first at all. You are all awesome and this board too!!! :eek:

    the facts:
    • 10 months old account
    • 2300 follower
    • avg like rate 400
    • niche: travelshots, nature, exploring
    • personal account - my real friends
    • use FL with LIKE function only

    My idea:

    Im a webdesigner, seo semi-pro, good at photo/filmaker stuff and sometimes i like a good jo*nt with green tee. I work now since 10 years for badasses and want to cut all the lines. I want to be a trvalblogger but a different one with special storys, nevermind :p. So my goal is to reach 50k-100k to use my connections to volkswagen, dji, canon and other companys that they are providing my with money and stuff. I dont want to be rich, damn no. I want to explore the world and tell wonderfull storys. Instagram was at the start for me a myth, realy! :p

    I read many articels in your blog about right settings etc. I understand this all well but one big question!

    I there a way without follow/unfollow function to get much followers? Cause i dont want to have an account with 50k followers and 10k followings! Better would be 50k to 400. If i see this accounts (with this 1.5 Ratio) they fall in this untrustable section for me and also for many many other people. Trust me IG ist not my only option to reach my goals. Blog, Landingpages, articles in big blogs with many pageviews but IG is important on the other side.

    Thanks for your help and sorry for the bad english :/

    You can always unfollow all the people you're following! That's how most of us do it. I usually start unfollowing when I reach 3k.

    Build a twitter and instagram. How much is your instagram budget? follow/unfollow until your account gets to 10K followers then purchase shoutouts. In the begining following and unfollowing is a good method. It will save you money fro pricey shoutouts.

    10 months in IG and still don't know you can only follow 7.5k people... hmm...
    To be honest, people can give you tips but you just seem like a lazy person wanting to be spoonfed, so why don't you go and read around :)

    Thenub this was first not the question and i never said this (the ratio at the start maybe was more the meaning behind... also 10000 to 1500 looks untrustable... also if its only for days) :p but by the way very friendly ;) i dont want to follow so much. thats the point MidTownMan answer my question very well... thank you boy :eek:

    Maybe also i good way is to get in these kind of photographer networks ("germanroamers" by the way is awesome) to get free shoutouts.

    there ain't shortcuts to a place worth going bro :)

    look, if you wanna get noticed you must provide GREAT content, which you might be doing already I guess. If you wanna get noticed, you will also have to target the RIGHT users and this can be done easily by following/unfollowing.

    provide awesome content, give value, reach out to people and your account can become popular. You have to put in time and effort, it ain't easy, especially since IG introduced those fckn limits.

    those networks might help, yes, but have u ever thought about the fact that once you reach 100k no one cares if you followed/unfollowed before? Even if it looks shitty, just do it.

    likes don't get much attention imo. You'd rather check someone out who followed you rather than someone who liked your pic, especially if you're already gaining a good amount of likes per pic.

    filter users intelligently and I'm sure with the proper content you'll have your follower base.
