    Hi all, lurked a lot around this amazing forum and got really inspired by many instagram journey posted in this section, so I decided to start my own account.
    The niche is fitness, because I've praticted some gym before, and also cause it seems to be an evergreen niche that can be monetized "easy". I started 1 week ago and actually I'm at 950 followers with a decent engagement, every pic I post is around 40/50 likes. I'm planning to reach the 100k in 1 year time I hope :D

    I'm doing all the follow/unfollow manually, and then when I'll grow I'll try some bot like FL.

    FIRST WEEK
    Current stats: 950 followers

    Some considerations in this first week:
    I get more likes when I post pics around the 2 PM - 5 PM (I live in Europe, Italy), don't know why .. have no idea on how to know where my likes are from. I get MORE likes when a pic is very bright and colorful, i think the filters influece a lot the followers.
    I need to be consistent in my follow/unfollow, but not too aggressive and fast since I already had a temporary block for few hours. Have to manage my time better since I have class most of the time.

    I apologize for my bad english, have to work on that too :p Hope this thread keeps me motivated, It will be a long run

    Hey man!

    I'm also following a journey on Instagram. Here are a few tips:
    - Only post high quality images (I got several comments like: "You're account is amazing" etc.)
    - Use hashtags! I had one account who gained 300 followers in 1 day because one of the images ranked for a hashtag
    - Ask the people questions in the description of the image. "What do you think of this image? Let us know in the comments".
    - Make multiple accounts. It's good to have several accounts growing.

    Good luck with your journey buddy ;)

    thanks for the tips, appreciate that! what do you mean by "images ranked for a hashtag"? I use common hashtags related to the niche
    For the moment I want to focus on this account, when I'll get this going auto, I'll start making new ones!

    If you click on the hashtag you will see all kinds of images which are posted using that hashtag. If you've "ranked" for that hashtag it basically means your image is on the top of the hashtag. So if anyone clicks on the hashtag he/she will see your image. I haven't exactly figured out how some of my pictures ranked for the hashtags and others didn't. If I figured that out I'll let you know. :)

    Well that's very difficult to obtain in viral hashtag, I think you need to get 1000+ likes in a hour
    I post 3 times a day between 2 pm and 6 pm
