    I just started 3 instagram accounts about 2 weeks ago. Im mainly focusing on one of the account with the other 2 getting much less attention. This journey will be based on my main account.

    The first week when I started was pretty slow. I was doing maybe 100 followers a day and getting 30-50 likes on my pics. After some trial and error i started to see better results. Right now I am in the later part of my second week. The last couple days have been good with me getting about 200 followers a day. Today has been special though. Ive already gotten 300 followers and with so much time left in the day I should see another 100 at least. Im also getting at bare minimum 100 likes a picture with most getting around 250 and a couple getting as high as 400.

    I am doing this all manually. I have my own algorithm I came up with and its been working really well. I would like to begin automating this however Im worried that my account will be banned.

    as of right now I have 1800 followers and I'm following 25

    How many followers are you guys getting a day on average? Are my numbers okay?

    I big question Im having is, when should I begin to monetize? I have a plan for a website and everything but Ive heard that putting a link on your page creates banning in a lot of cases. What do you guys think and have you had any experience with putting your site on your insta bio?

    My experinece: I have around 5k followers right now and I put my link in the description around 2 weeks after I made the account and nothing, still going. :)

    But I am managing my account manually.

    Okay so last night closed with 2000 followers and I'm following only 44. That ended my day with a total of +500 followers. A really good day so far. Now today has been slow in comparison. I've only gotten +50 followers so far and for some reason Instagram has put a restriction on my following. I haven't followed more than 20 people in the last 24 hours so why would they do that?
