    Hi guys, I know that there are a lot of Instagram Journey type of threads, but I will open one too, mostly because I want to keep myself motivated through it and gain knowledge from experienced guys like you.

    My objective is:
    Achieve a total of 100K followers spread around 5 accounts.
    I decided to keep it only to 5 accounts because it's perfectly allowed by Instagram and for now I don't want to get involved with proxies and other stuff like that.

    Due to:
    I am going to have 100k followers right before 1st October this year.

    How am I going to do it?
    I will mostly use the follow/unfollow method, post quality content until I get to 1-5k followers and then I'll also start getting into S4S groups.
    I'll combine manually following/unfollowing with bots like Instagress/ManualPlanner that will do the job for me while I am not at home or I am busy.

    Monetizing?
    Right now, no. I do not have any plans concerning this subject. I just want to focus 100% of my attention only to growing the accounts, but monetizing will definetly come into discussion after I hit a specific amount of followers.

    Statistics:
    Until now, I created only 3 accounts, 2 more to go in the next days.

    This is how is going so far, after the first day:
    Account 1: 216
    Account 2: 283
    Account 3: 38

    I will update this thread with new statistics about each account every 24h.

    PS: I am not going to stop until I reach that 100k, I promise.​

    The point is gaining a big number of followers on 1 or more Instagram accounts that later can be monetized by doing shoutouts, CPA, CPI and so on.
    Thank you very much, I am going to keep you guys updated daily on what's going on and how everything is evolving.

    You need 20k on each account to achieve 100k and in 2.5 months it's highly achievable
    But needs lot of work. Good luck mate

    As I said in the original post, my objective is to achieve a total of 100k followers with 5 accounts, so that would be around 20k followers per account. Then, when I get to this number of followers, keep growing more and more while doing some shoutouts until I get to 1 million followers, then the real bucks will come in.

    I am looking at this as a long term investment, I know that withing 1.5 years from this day I will have my million followers and that's when the real cash is going to start coming in.

    Thank you everybody for wishing me the best.
    I am not going to bail on this journey, at least not until I reach 1 million followers. I will keep you updated.

    I always said that the beginning is the hardest part, in everything you do. It will take a bit until our accounts take off and I know that after 5k followers they pretty much start growing on their own.

    No, after 5K followers don't grow on their own. However, after 50K they will easily grow when you post quality content. The hardest part is reaching 50K, and reaching 1,000 likes per post.

    Good luck though. What's your IG name?

    Loved the idea. I had no idea until now that you could monetize Instagram Accounts. Thanks for the Heads Up. Yes, I am newbie.

    Hi guys, so it's been a week since I last updated this thread, I think I'm not going to update daily as I said previously in my OP because there would be nothing much to say on a daily basis except adding a few hundreds more followers.

    This week I have added 1 more account along with those first 3 accounts and I bought MassPlanner subscription. I am taking it very slowly because I don't want my accounts to get banned and since I am using MassPlanner that could be even more dangerously.

    First month is going to be a slow one, warm the accounts up, then it will start cathing up.

    For now I only have 4 accounts, but after I test everything with MassPlanner and make sure that using this software won't get my accounts banned, I am going to buy 20 proxies and start 60-70 more accounts that are not going to be mixed with those 4. These 4 accounts are like my personal accounts, where I like to give them my final touch.

    My strategy? I am going to grow 50 up to 100 IG accouns and use them all to shoutout my main 4 accounts and of course, why not, if there are shoutouts buyers... I am going to monetize them.

    My new objective? 100k followers on each of the 4 accounts by the end of this year, this is very achieveable and I know I am going to make it, so stick with me. :D

    My stats:
    Account 1: 1058 followers.
    Account 2: 1592 followers.
    Account 3: 1137 followers.
    Account 4: 925 followers.

    Total: 4612 followers in 1 week starting from 0.
    These numbers are definetley going to slowly increase every day and every week because I keep growing the following/liking ratio everyday and of course, the bigger and popular an account gets, the more organic followers it's going to get.

    If you have any question or simply want to know something, just post it here and I'll make sure to answer you.

    The strategy of follow/unfollow in instagram is good but it's not enough you should slow down following people to avoid getting ban
