    Hey Everybody,

    I'm still fairly new to this so forgive me if I sound like a newb. My goal is to get my IG account to at least 50k REAL followers and/or 1,000 likes and around 100 comments per post. This won't be an easy task but I am dedicated and focused. The niche that I will be using is fitness girls.

    Currently my account has 13k followers and gets around 130 likes per post with around 3-4 comments. I am following around 3k people.

    The techniques I will use to accomplish my goals are using the FL bot to mass follow around 500-700 people a day for 3 days, take a day off. Then unfollow everyone who hasn't followed back. Then repeat. While doing this I will also be using FL to like and comment on pictures related to keywords that have to do with my niche.

    Also, I will probably purchase a few shoutouts from bigger accounts related to my niche in order to further increase my REAL ACTIVE followers who will like and comment my posts. I will try to find groups of people that do S4S as well.

    Eventually my goal is monetize the account.

    I will update this post as my journey goes on hopefully every 10k followers until I reach 50k. If you have ANY advice (please I will take any criticism in a good way) please feel free to share with me. I am still a newb and this is my first IG account. So I really appreciate any help you guys can give me.

    A few questions too:
    1) What settings do you recommend I use with FL?

    2) What other strategies are there to building the IG?

    3) Where can I find people who will sell me shoutouts that are good quality?

    4) Where can I find groups of people with similar followers who will do S4S?

    Thank you for listening to my journey!!

    Good Luck on your journey!

    1. If you're not 100% using FL, use our tool! Here's a thread showing our success;

    2. tag big accounts related to your niche in your pictures - it will help you grow!

    3. Have a look at accounts bio, details will be in there to buy shoutouts.

    4. Most of its all done on KIK

    Good luck with your Journey OP. I have decided to try and tackle the beast that is Instagram as well.. Although I am waaaaay behind you at the moment! Maybe i'll start a Journey thread too. It might keep me accountable.

    Anywho, good luck! I'll be following along

    It's been 3 days since I last posted.

    Immediately after posting this I purchased a new account that had 22k followers followers and received around 600-900 likes and 50+ comments a post. It had an a small active community around it. Aside from that, I also created a new IG account to work on as a side project. I purchased 10k fake followers on there in order to make the page more appealing to new followers. The big account had a sports niche and the other new account had a fashion niche. Both of those are subscribed to growmyinsta to help grow them without me laying a finger only needing to post new content (which is the more fun part of the work).

    So that makes 3 accounts in total:
    DAY 1 STATS:
    Fitness niche: 13k followers 100+ likes per photo 1-2 comments per photo FL
    Sports niche: 22k followers 600-900 likes per photo 50+ comments Growmyinsta
    Fashion niche: 10l followers 1 like per photo 0 comments Growmyinsta

    DAY 3 STATS:
    Fitness niche: 13.5k followers 100+ likes per photo 1-2 comments per photo FL
    Sports niche: 22k.5 followers 600-900 likes per photo 50+ comments Growmyinsta
    Fashion niche: 10.2 followers 20 likes per photo 1 comments Growmyinsta

    In 3 days all three accounts seem to be growing at a steady rate (almost 200 followers a day). The comments and likes still seem to be the same but have boosted a lot for the fashion niche. Some techniques that I have been using to try to start experimenting with monetizing is signing up for cpa offers and making users click on my link that sends them to my landing page in IG. Throughout the accounts I have been giving each other accounts shoutouts trying to make posts with pics that connect the accounts. Both FL bot and Growmyinsta seem to be doing a preety good job at at growing the accounts. I've only made a total of $2 in total through cpa offers. I plan to try and start researching how to sell shoutouts efficiently and other ways of monetizing the accounts.

    Most of the work I've been doing is just reading a bunch of forum posts and other websites trying to learn new strategies and techniques and hopefully meet others who are in similar situations and maybe help eachother grow and start building relationships that will probably be essential in the future. I've been posting about 3 pics per day in each account.

    We'll see what happens in the next fews days. I'll update this more as my journey progresses.
