    I have decided to make journey thread for my new Instragram account. The goal is 50k followers, which I am sure I will be able to achieve before the end of the year.
    I have teamed up with my sister and decided to go with the fashion niche. She is posting quality photos and I am the one drawing attention to the account.
    I will be using Instagress for automating a lot of the process.

    This thread is comming a little late, as I already made the account 3 days ago.

    No more boring details :D

    I will be updating this daily with stats about the account.

    Day 1:

    Followers: 1250

    Followings: 2906

    Average likes per photo: ~90

    Tell me if there is anything else you would like to know!

    I haven't really done much on the account today. I uploaded a few pics and let the bot do the work.

    Todays stats are the following:

    Day 2:

    Followers: 1435 +185

    Followings: 3281 +375

    Average likes per photo: ~100

    My followback ratio for today is 49% which I am very happy about.

    EDIT:

    I have decided to make 2 more accounts in the same category and I am currently using Instagress on those accounts aswell. I will update you with both accounts again tomorrow.

    Is your sister posting pics of herself wearing outfits or dresses?

    Because when your account gets large enough, companies will start contacting you to advertise their clothing/accessory/makeup brand.

    Sadly, she isn't posting photos of herself.. I am sure that it could draw more attention and could get really successful, but she doesn't want to do it.

    Alright, there is a few things to go through for today. As some of you probably read in my latest update, I decided to open 2 more accounts in the same niche. This way it will be a little faster and I have better possibilites for monetizing later on. The goal of this journey is still to achieve 50k followers on the main account. The other two accounts will be used as a supplement and a side project. I will give updates on all three accounts. Earlier today I set the account into unfollowing mode. I will go with this setting for the next 2 days, I think. That explains the difference followings. Anyways, let's dive into it.

    Day 3, main account:

    Followers: 1604 +169

    Followings: 3520 +239

    Average likes per photo: ~100

    That means a followback ratio of 70%. Damn, that's pretty high imo.

    Day 1, side account 1:

    Followers: 87

    Followings: 237

    Average likes per photo: 15

    Follow back ratio for this one is 37%. That's ok, I guess.

    Day 1, side account 2:

    Followers: 94

    Followings: 304

    Average likes per photo: ~18

    Follow back ratio for this one is 31%. Also ok, but I would like it be higher.

    Once again, if people have any questions, I will be happy to answer!

    Throwing in an update for day 4. I hope some people are following the journey! :)

    So the main account has been on the 'unfollow' setting for the last 2 days and therefore not much activity.
    The other 2 accounts are still following other users and are getting decent results.

    Day 4, main account:

    Followers: 1672 +68

    Followings: 3269

    Average likes per photo: ~100

    Not much to say about this one.

    Day 2, side account 1:

    Followers: 209 +122

    Followings: 561 +324

    Average likes per photo: ~20

    Don't bother to calculate followback ratio etc. :D

    Day 1, side account 2:

    Followers: 248 +157

    Followings: 640 +336

    Average likes per photo: ~30

    Decent followback ratio here. :)

    Let's see how it goes tomorrow!
