    Hi blackhatters,
    I am very new to blackhatworld, so apologies in advance if anything about this post is unintentionally wrong in this category. I was recommended by a friend of mine, of many years, to come to this forum, rather than others. His comments mainly included BHW's community, particularly under social networking, to be very kind, understanding, and overall helpful. I've look at maybe 10 forums so far, and I can already agree. I will leave a little background knowledge on my experiences in social networking prior to this journey, below in BLUE. So, if you'd like to check it out, feel free to, if not, just skip it because it isn't exactly necessary. At the bottom will be what I do / do not expect from this journey, and below that in RED will be my stats on the account, from Day 1 / Week 1 onward. I will revise this forum every week (on Sundays) with information on my progress.


    BACKGROUND:
    I'm a teenager, yes, but I've taken many business leadership classes already, as well as marketing strategies and such, and I know the jist of it. I am planning to become an Executive Marketing Manager in the future, and I plan to use my previous and upcoming advertising / expansion experience in social media to help me. I am currently not looking to earn profit from this page, but rather see if I can do it, just to motivate myself, others, and have fun. In the future, I do plan on selling shoutouts to pages of relevant niches.

    Accounts I've Owned:
    ( Category / Niche | Followers | Approximate Likes per Photo | Year(s) )

    Shoutout Page | 12k+ | 900 | 2013 - 2014
    Shoutout Page 2 | 7k+ | 750 | 2014
    Motivational Page | 5k+ | 700 | 2015
    Religious Page | 14k+ | 1,500 | 2014 - PRESENT

    Honorable Mentions:
    ( Other accounts I have co-owned / contributed to )

    Shoutout Page | 31k+ | 2,600 | 2014
    Religious Page | 121k+ | 7,000 | 2015 - PRESENT
    Religious Page | 47k+ | 3,000 | 2015



    All in all, I don't expect all that much considering I do have a fair amount of experience managing / running accounts. My goal is about 111 new followers daily, to reach that goal of 10k in 90 days. I have never actually documented my journey with these accounts, and this should be a fun experiment. I would also like to recommend socialblade as a tool for monitoring the interaction of your account for BHW users. Anyways, current stats of my account, below. Thanks, guys!


    CURRENT PAGE:
    ( Category / Niche | Followers | Approximate Likes per Photo | Year(s) )

    Luxury / Motivational / Fitness Page | 133 | 19 :( | ( March ) 2016


    I am also helping a friend grow his accounts alongside mine. This is the same friend that recommend BHW to me. I will list his accounts he is building, below in GREEN.


    FRIEND'S CURRENT PAGES:
    ( Category / Niche | Followers | Approximate Likes per Photo | Year(s) )

    Luxury | 481 | 17 | ( March ) 2015
    Girls | 3434 | 85 | ( March ) 2015


    welp. That's enough of the internet for one night.

    Good luck bro, instagram is one of the better social media platforms to grow an account on these days. Can't wait to see those numbers explode!

    Good luck.. But set your goal a little high. 10k is something that can even be achieved in 25 days. My advice for you is to start with at least 15 accounts. You will not regret it after 5 months.

    What would be the benefit of starting with more accounts? Advertising your one page from 14 other accounts? And, I would've set it higher, but this is my first journey, so 10k is enough. :p

    Because when you start with, let's say, 10 accounts. after 3 months when you reach your goal of 10k, you will have reached that goal with 10 accounts, so in total you will have had 100k followers when combined. you can continue to grow those accounts, or you can simply sell them (or the 9 of them) and make some money. Plus even if it's your first time, still set your goal higher. Instagram is extremely easy to grow when done manually and right. but you can set any goal you like as it depends on the time and dedication you can give to it.
