    Alright, I'm posting this journey in the hopes that it continues to keep me motivated.

    About me: I'm 21, I work at an auto glass company. I plan on taking this journey in small steps, one goal at a time instead of just shooting for the stars right away. I've been lurking around BHW for quite some time now but this is first time I've ever dabbled in doing something like this.

    I'm currently using followliker using the follow/unfollow method to gain new followers. I also have it set where it uploads 5-6 photos a day randomly.

    This journey is for the 3 accounts I have in this niche.(Plan to add more accounts in this niche so they can help each other grow.)

    Account #1 (831)
    Account #2 (66)
    Account #3 (58)

    Total = 955

    I plan on eventually dominating this niche and I'm hoping to be doing just that by the end of Fall.(Christmas Time)

    Account #1 is about a week old while the other two accounts were created yesterday.
    I have the accounts settings very low, so they don't seem aggressive. Eventually I would love it where I can monetize my accounts but for now we'll just concentrate on getting a good following and good engagement.



    Goals:
    Get 10k followers
    Get 25k followers
    Get 50k followers
    Get 100k followers
    ????

    The idea is to update this thread everyday once I get home from work so long as the time is there.

    Update 5/23


    Account #1 (983) +152
    Account #2 (177) +111
    Account #3 (125) +67

    Total=1,285


    I forgot to mention this in the original post but Account #1 has 300 bought followers when I first created it in the hopes of it helping with the follow backs.

    Likes are around 40-70 on Account #1. Seems kind of low to me, hopefully it will increase with time.
    Account 2 & 3 get around 15-30 usually.

    Other than that I'm not really complaining, will update again tomorrow :)

    Sorry about the break in updates. Work has been super busy and such long hours but the accounts are still running and everything is still moving along.

    5/28 6am update.

    Account #1 (1599) +462
    Account #2 (281) +31
    Account #3 (184) +30

    I'm not sure what happened but Account 2 and 3 haven't been following other users.

    Creating two more accounts today and getting them into the mix.

    Hope to see better results over this Memorial Day weekend.

    Account #2 has really high engagement getting like 60-80 likes a picture.

    Account #1 averages in the 60's with a few comments per picture.

    Things are slow, but steady. We'll get there everyone!

    Account #1 (1872) +121
    Account #2 (434) +129
    Account #3 (319) +113

    I'm actually unfollowing on Account #1 and still gaining over 100 followers was really nice. Once I get the followers down to 0 I plan on changing up who I follow and how many I follow. I'm going to shoot for gaining followers that will engage, like and comment.

    Account #2 still has really high engagement.


    Will update again tomorrow evening after work.

    5/31 update!

    Account #1 (1954) +82
    Account #2 (669) +235
    Account #3 (548) +229
    Account #4 (158) +158

    Total (3,329) +704 Total followers

    Progress is moving along nicely, added a fourth account in the same general niche as the others.

    Account #1 is currently unfollowing and still grew by 82 followers which is really nice :D

    Each account has their own twist that has to do with the same niche. Most are doing really well and I'm having a blast so far with this journey!

    Update 6/1

    Account #1 (1983) +29
    Account #2 (821) +152
    Account #3 (696) +148
    Account #4 (268) +110

    Total (3,768) +439

    Keep in mind account #1 is currently unfollowing so that's the reason for the low following, but hey I'm just happy I'm not losing followers and I'm still actually gaining some!

    Account #1 Likes are averaging 55-80 with a few comments on most pictures.
    Account #2 Likes are varying quite heavily, by heavily I mean anywhere from 40-90 likes a picture with a comment or two on each picture.
    Account #3 Likes are anywhere from 50-70 with comments here and there,
    Account #4 has been the most surprising averaging 60-80 likes on most pictures with quite a few comments.

    Despite account #1 having the biggest following i think the reason why it doesn't get the level of engagement these other accounts get is because it's a mixture of the nice that makes up the other 3 accounts, while the other 3 accounts mainly focuses on one part of what makes up the niche and all of the people I get as followers on the other 3 accounts are more targeted. If that makes any sense :p

    I also changed my followliker to only run from 5am to 9pm, that way it's not 24/7 and it will start posting pictures once everyone wakes up opposed to just posting some in the middle of the night.

    Anyways I'm hoping everyone is enjoying my journey so far! Any questions I'll be happy to answer!

    Total(4,081) +313

    Turns out my internet went down sometime today while I was at work. I believe that was the reason for the low followings on the accounts. I have the rest of the week off so expect updates mid day throughout the next 3 days.

    Likes ranged from 50-60 a picture on Account #1 today.
    Likes ranged from 65-95 a picture on Account #2 today.
    Likes ranged from 50-75 a picture on Account #3 today.
    Likes ranged from 75-100 a picture on Account #4 today.

    I post about 5 pictures a day per account, and this numbers are rounded. not exact

    Account #4 is super surprising with the amount of likes it's getting. People must really love that part of this niche.

    Hope to break 5k by Sunday night. We'll see how it goes:)

    Account #3 (887) +75
    Account #4 (395) +48

    Total (4,294) +213

    Keep in mind these are pretty much just overnight stats.
    Account #1 is still unfollowing.
    Changing what Account #2, 3, and 4 follows so this help with follow backs.

    Engagement is still good across the board.

    Next update won't be until tomorrow night.

    Account #1 has a couple of days left of unfollowing. Such a tedious process, lol

    other than that everything else is moving along nicely.

    So I was going to wait until tonight to do this update but I actually broke 5k over the night. :D

    Also made a 5th account last night, based off a spinoff of this niche. Everything is coming along nicely!

    Account #1 (2135) +51
    Account #2 (1248) +212
    Account #3 (1149) +165
    Account #4 (609) +135
    Account #5 (116) +116

    Total (5257) +679

    Account #4 is averaging over a hundred likes a pictures. Most hitting the 130-150 area. It is by far doing the best as far as likes to follower ratio.

    Every other account is doing pretty well as far as engagement goes.

    Next step is 7500 by Friday!
