    Welcome to my Instagram Journey
    about:
    My niche is travel/nature/photography and I started my account with 0 followers 2 months ago and I've grown over 33,000 followers manually. my pictures get average 2.5k likes but some of them get 4k+ with 250+ comments. I also have 2 other accounts in the same niche that both have 5,000. about a week ago i bought Followliker and have been running all 3 of my accounts from it. i'll say its a lot easier than doing it manually. i usually post around 3-5 pictures a day on my main account.

    ways to monetize:
    Right when my main account hit 20,000 i released a T-shirt on bigcartel with a really cool design related to the niche. in just 10 days i sold 11 shirts and made a total profit of $326. I am also getting DM's about people wanting to get shout outs from my page. If i get an average of 2.5k likes per picture how much do you think i should charge? and how would i work the shout out? I've also been thinking about creating a website/blog where I can post my content and sell my product. I can guarantee traffic to this website and then maybe put Adsense on it. Would that be a good idea? if you have any other ways to monetize please let me know:)

    Followliker:
    Just about a week ago i Purchased Followliker. I am not able to show my settings right now but could someone tell me some good settings for Followliker?

    If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I will keep this thread updated:)

    Congrats on taking action OP :) Good Luck !
    Nice and safe settings are perfectly explained here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/instagram/783129-get-ultimate-followliker-instagram-tutorial.html
    Before using FL you need to be sure, that all your settings are set up correctly and not too aggressive :)

    Congratz on your accounts OP. I have one account in the same niche as you. Travel/Fotography/Nature.
    I grew it in about 6 weeks to almost 12k and then had to stop for private reasons.
    Do you scrape your pictures from other accounts or how do you do it ?
    Also I really like your thoughts on monetization, didn't think selling shirts might be possible in our niche.
    Do you mind sharing more info on your account ? You can PM me as well. I wanna learn from you lol.

    Great job, OP. For manual work, that's pretty impressive.

    I've heard charging $10 per 1k engagement, but I think it depends on how long the shoutout is. Probably charge more if it's a longer shoutout.

    11 shirts sold on a 20k acc is good. If you keep making shirts, you can bank really nicely. :)

    I've seen a couple of Ig journeys lately, good luck with it, you've done a great work manually so far so you know how to do it, automate it and you'll do even better ;)

    i will probably use that as my pricing for shout outs. I'm currently getting another design and I'm going to put it on a long sleeve grey pocket tee. I think it will also sell pretty nicely

    Profit of $326 for 11 shirts?! Do you mean total revenue? Because if that's straight profit those are some expensive shirts :lmao:

    Aplause!!! :cheerlead This is crazy. I think many people try to catch 33k with the FL but you get it without FL!!! Amazing.

    I have a account in the same niche and also using now FL but i only use the LIKE function. So how you gain 33k in 2 months only via ig app? I want to do the same and currently i build a blog cause this is my real business. I also think about buing 12k for 99$ only for the "psychological effect". So maybe we can help each other cause i gain 2300 in 6 months. PM if you want.

    How does the selling of t-shirts work? I have an audience in the U.S, but I'm from europe and shipping would be expensive.

    Yes. The idea behind the app is realy nice. Is that coin thing. When u like like or follow with this app you earn coins and for this coins otherwise you can buy followings or likes. So the people are real. If you wont wait you can buy coins. Ive test it with 100 Followers months ago and you can say 5-10% go away on the first days! 5% dont look like real profiles but the rest looks good and stay (depends on your media). So the price for that is nice i would say but i very new in this stuff. If your are near 30 and live in germany its normal :p ... best grettings and sorry for the bad english :p

    I'm working on Instagram journeys now, it's actually quite easy to profit using guides on this website but also does take a lot of time. I guess you've gotta be persistent and patient. Any tips on how to grow followers?

    Use something like Spreadshirt, Teespring, CafePress etc. You can put designs on their and then when they sell those companies print the clothes and ship, all you do it put up the design and promote to sell.

    to grow followers fast you need to be consistent with posting quality pictures. (i dont post my own pictures but other peoples pictures) and i also follwed people from similar niche pages. i did that A LOT. like I put in the time. if you put in the time and have a great idea with great content, you will grow the following.

    spend those 99$ in other stuff instead of buying 12k followers who end up not being interested in your media. Those apps aren't really helpful when it comes to building an audience who is interested in your content. I would never spend 99$ in those followers, mach das niiiiiiiicht! :D

    also watch out which third party apps you use, you may end up losing your account!
