    Today I jumped into the Instagram scene. Never used to the app let alone make an account. I want to see how fast and how big I can grow an account. To start things off I have set a goal of 50,000. Seemed like a reasonable amount, not to big but not something easy like 5,000. Did some brain storming earlier and have picked several niches that can be interlinked together, should hopefully attract plenty of people. Will be getting my images from Tumblr as it is a great source, new content daily which I can use.

    Right now I am working with ONE account but have plans to add a few more which I can use to help promote my main account.
    To help me I own "MonsterSocials" Instagram package. Seen mixed views about the program but they were rather old, lets hope they have improved since then.

    To get me started I'm following people that are following big accounts in my niche(s) and commenting on various images.
    After an hour or two I'm currently at 119 Followers, getting several likes on my pictures as well. Follow back rate is about 60% which is decent.

    Hoping for close if not over 200 followers by the end of today​

    Just have in mind what I didn't (stupid - didn't research it before),
    there's a limit to people you follow at around 7k. And that's it.
    Either unfollow people & do it again (rinse-repeat) or find other ways.
    But you seem like you're ready & you have other things as well. :)

    The limit is 7,5k for following.
    I started one journey too about Instagram, feel free to ask for help.
    Before doing anything stupid don't buy fake followers or anything like that, good luck

    Don't plan on getting near the follow limit. Have read a few threads before hand, according to them Instagram is just like other social sites, the more followers you have the quicker you grow.
    Hopefully once I hit a few thousands things will become semi-automated

    I'm nearing 4k right now, and I am already noticing how much easier it's becoming. My goal is to catch up to someone in my niche and they have 325K right now. It'll happen...

    Keep pushing it mate, you will get there.

    Hit 167 Followers starting today in a few hours work. Plan on buying some proxies and making a few accounts to spam comments and promote my main.
    Hopefully it should help with the speed in which my accounts grows.

    Just a quick update.
    Made two more accounts in different niches today, will begin growing them together and will use each account to promote one another.

    Account 1: 220 Followers
    Account 2: 12 Followers
    Account 3: 7 Followers

    (2 & 3 literally just started within the last 5 minutes)

    Thank you

    These three accounts were made on my IP via Instagram.
    I have only need to verify my first account by phone so far, lets hope it stays like that.

    Plan to make a few more accounts with some proxies I picked up yesterday, will use them to spam comments which promote my main accounts.

    I'd recommend buying shoutouts, they help a lot.

    From what I hear, you should give shoutouts a try on Twitter.

    If you're looking to avoid upfront costs, then keep botting/manually doing it and get the ball rolling.

    Such a great service that you need to spam your shit on other peoples threads just to get some customers.
    I don't need or want your crap, reported your post which will hopefully be followed by you being banned.

    Quick update. Paid $5 for a shoutout on an account with 200K followers, gained just under 100 which I think is terrible but it was $5. That's what testing is for, certainly wont be using them again.
    Gained just over 500 Followers early so gradually getting there. First milestone will be 1,000

    I am definitely keeping an eye on this journey. About to start my own Instagram journey too, so hopefully this will keep me inspired! Good luck!
