    Hi
    I started growing Instagram since last week of December 2016. I was too lazy to start a journey thread here Lol.
    My Goal-
    To reach 25k followers, Since i am growing my account manually so, i may stop follow/unfollow method at 25k.

    20 bucks not bad for such an account. The problem is your business plan isn't scalable, I strongly advice you to find suitable bot.
    Nevertheless good luck with your journey

    At this time, My main goal is to grow account first without any bots, Later I will think about any plan. Thanks

    I reached 10k in last week of April, So it 4 months to reach 10k. I agree, follow/unfolow method is boring, but i am getting real followers and 12-15 % engagement rate. I believe it worths.

    Yes, I unfollow everyone till zero following, then I start following people in my niche upto 4-5 k following. Then repeat.
    Your engagement looks good to me( it's more than 10%. I suggest you to follow people in your niche who like and comment, they will probably like and comment on your post too.

    Did you notice any change in engagement since you switched to business profile? I heard from quite a lot people that their engagement decreased when they did so
