    I just made a new Instagram account. I have posted some pictures and am getting pretty good like rates. Not realy getting followers yet, but the likes are coming.

    I turned on an Instagram bot to like pictures within my niche's tags. So far liked around 150 pictures.
    I'm following profiles in my niche with at least 1k followers. (Going to start with lower amounts, they follow back quicker than pages with 600k wich is recommended I guess). Pages with high amounts of follower are liking my pictures. Wich is great because their followers will see that in their following activity.
    While I'm getting to 1k, I'm going to focus and learn more about optimizing the description of a picture to make people tag their friends/like the picture.

    When I reach 1k I'm going to set up a Tumblr page and put it in my bio. Will put some ads in there and maybe some other things.
    Going to start CPA when I reach 5k.
    I will try and get some shoutouts from small pages. Just to get some followers. The more followers I get, the higher followed profiles I'm going to approach.

    Going to try and post at least once every day to describe my progress.
    If you have any tips feel free to let me know :)

    You're better off setting up the Tumblr page now, this way it will be a bit aged and you can abuse it a bit more,js

    Yeah, I was going to.. But it might be a waste of time if this doesn't work out.. 1k would be good for me to set it up, but I guess at least 200 would be good too.

    Instagram as with all social networks getting followers depend on your niche. If its the funny/parody/fails niche you can get 1K in a few days. The problem is those followers are hard to monetize. In the money-making niches followers come by much harder

    Yes, thats why I avoided those basic ones. I went for weed. People love weed, even people that dont smoke it love it. Because you can get really creative with how you roll your joints etc. The likes are coming in hot right now. People starting to follow me. Pages with 30k+ like my pictures and comment on them. This all means more exposure for me :)

    Oh. I've read people put ads on Tumblr all the time. Even Adfly has a code to put ads in your Tumblr page

    Ah okay that's pretty good, you should look at the bigger pages with a lot of followers and check out what hashtags they use; make a list of them and then paste the hashtags in the comment section of your picture.

    Yeah, only those pages dont really use hashtags since they have so many followers. But i do have a list of very popular hashtags in my niche. It seems to be woking.

    If you know who Berner is, his road manager liked some of my pics. Pretty cool


    EDIT: 15-20 likes a pic now

    12 pictures

    I get around 15-30 likes
    Some people tag friends now

    Struggling to get followers though. Any tips?

    If you dont want to get banned buy a domain name for your tumblr and you can set ur tumblr to go there and they will let u put any ads on it. I am also doing the tumblr/,instagram method but I startes with tumblr first have 3.4k follwers now I made my instagram like 2 weeks ago

    Nice. What is your method on getting people to follow? Alot of them like multiple pictures but they dont hit that follow button.

    Once you reach 1,000 followers aim for 10k then eventually 100,000 and even more.

    Don't just stop at 1,000, use what you did and keep it up.

    Eventually you will have a couple golden nuggets you can use to promote literally anything.
