    I tried out many different things and while my "passive" income is betting, I was looking for a way to build something up, that generates money for me and is also fun. I'm still thinking, that this won't be possible, but I''m doing this journey to prove me and maybe some others, wrong. I'm going for Instagram, because I have a feeling, that this will work out well.

    I already have an account, that's now at 2314 followers. I created it about a month ago and I changed the niche like 2-3 times. I wasn't happy with the niches I chose, so I decided to change it one
    last time and now I'm very satisfied. In the beginning, I was just following big accounts and people with more than 1 million followers, manually. On the first sight, it worked out pretty well, because I was gaining followers pretty fast. Then I realized, that these followers won't help me in any way. They just pushed my follower count, but I realized that this wasn't the right way, as I was losing more followers than I was gaining. I was gathering more information about Instagram and then bought an program to help me out. Now I'm liking 600-800 niche-related pictures daily (some others manually) and following 800-1000 users (they follow the biggest account of my niche) The way I unfollow isn't really written in stone.

    Now I have about 9 Pictures for my new niche, which are REALLY high-quality and I chose them really carefully. I'm uploading the pictures manually and mix them up nicely. That's also my main intension for the account. It should look really professional, high-quality and when I like it, it guess others will do too.
    ;) While I was uploading 1-2 pictures daily, I think I'm gonna scale it up to 3-4 pictures a day. The big thing i'm happy about is the name of the account, it covers the niche and is very individual. No characters, just one word where two words flow together. I can already imagine a brand with this name, but this is far far away :rolleyes:

    I'm gonna update this thread daily and I'm open for some tips and impressions. I the next days, it can be possible, that I will lose some followers, or just gain a few, because of the ghost followers I gained earlier. Thanks for reading and sorry for my
    English.

    Starting Day:

    Followers: 2316
    Following: 551
    Media: 9
    Average likes on the pictures: 150-220 (I have a way to push the number of my likes) :p

    thanks. :eek: this won't help you because you have to choose a niche which is suitable for you!

    Thanks!
    Yeah, I'm pretty happy about it. The key for the daily motivation. :)

    Thanks! Yeah, I didn't know where to post it. :rolleyes:

    Thanks. I'm thinking about this later, but for now I have shoutouts and some merchandise in mind, because this is perfect for my niche. As I mentioned before, the username also fits very well.

    Didnt update, because I got "banned" for following, because I followed and unfollowed too fast. I guess I learned from it :pat:
    This will last till saturday, so I guess then I will update again.. Did this happen to you again? What will be the next penalties?

    If i where you i would wait some days after saturday with following/unfollowing again. Because of the risk to get another (longer) ban.
