    Just in need of a little bit of guidance.
    I purchased Followliker back in February from learning about it on this site. Since that time I've grown from 300 followers to 9,200 followers. I'm in the fitness niche.
    Most of my pics get between 200-350 likes. I just post the pic, tag the person, and cap their username, no hashtags or anything like that.

    I obviously thought more followers would mean more likes, but things are just stalling.

    I was allowing Followliker to follow people, but I got up to about 6k and couldn't follow any more. Since then I've unfollowed about 2.5k and haven't followed anymore since. Everyone who follows me, I've followed them back.

    What am I doing wrong? I simply ask people can I post their pics. I have about 40 DMs I haven't reviewed, because Things are getting a little boring.

    What's the next step? What route should I go next?
    My ultimate goal of course is to charge people for shoutouts but I'm no where near that point yet.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    10k followers is enough to start charging a few bucks for shoutouts.

    Really? I just post about 10 pics a day and all I ask is that people follow me in return. Am I posting too many in one day?

    whats a good price? 5 dollars?

    @OP, try to exchange shout outs from people within your niche. You can join facebook or skype groups if no one is willing to give you a free shout out.

    Otherwise, I would buy s/o's if you have money to spend..
