    Hi, I've decided to start my instagram journey!
    I will start out with 2 accounts first, then maybe add some more.
    Any tips are appreciated, and any free softwares yous may recommend that could help me start?
    I plan on buying a paid program in the future when I built up a slight following...

    Account 1: Animal Niche (0/0)
    Account 2: Can't think of a niche for this yet......

    Instagress is great for getting started, but I'd HIGHLY recommend getting FollowLiker. It's $100 which sounds like a lot, but a year ago when I started out on Instagram I didn't want to spend the money, and ended up (slowly over time) spending $270. I wish I had just gotten it when I started out. I'd have saved a lot of money. (Also, Microleaves dedicated proxies are great imo. The code: BHW25 saves you $$$)

    Good luck! I started out a year ago with nothing, and now I have 7 accounts at 16k, one at 18k, and 30 new accounts I started about a month or two ago. :)

    Update: I believe it's going pretty good !
    Account #1 (Animals) 242 Followers / 407 following ~59% followback
    *Follow ratio is only this good because I did unfollow a few people*

    Account #2 (Fashion) 0/0 Starting very soon....
    I feel like this niche is interesting that is why I picked it...


    Account #3 (This will be the last account I try to manage for now) Still thinking of a niche for this one..

    Anyone with advice I'm definitely ears wide open!

    Focus on 2, manual labour, fuck the botting.

    Why? When you put full focus on 2 mains, the gains will be way higher than botting the stuff. When you achieve a certain level of followers, doors will open and the gains will go even quicker and quicker. Then it's a matter of time that you can grow ANY account to higher numbers in a matter of time.

    Look at the guy above, who is botting a year and stuck with 16k per account....say whut? Once you have your own big accounts, you grow that 16k in a week.

    I've started with botting as well, 7 months work brought me to 100k or so spread out over several accounts. Worthless stuff and abandoned the shit. Restarted and got over 500k in just a few months.

    Make wise choices. Good luck.

    Agree with this but best is to take large follower accounts that were created by botting and start going manual with them. The head start and numbers botting achieves for you can be a HUGE benefit once you go manual with that account and others that you branch off with.

    be smart, don't waste all that work.

    I'm they're not stuck at 16k, they're driving traffic to my site. I do literally no work and get tons of traffic on full autopilot. literally just created 30 more accounts, and now they're on autopilot too. Stoked to see my results in a few months.

    Let's assume that this is true (as with anything on the Internet, you have to take everything with a grain of salt).

    VapeMonkey is on point here. Manual labor IS still the way to go. Botting, IMO, is only great for aging your accounts, gaining a little traction, and showing IG that you have some activity.

    How about automation? The answer isn't botting. It is OUTSOURCING. Delegate and micromanage for the first few runs. Once quality is assured, remove yourself and automate the whole shebang.

    This is some sort of wake up a call for me as well. I have an account which has gained a pretty good number of followers through botting but not the target audience I am looking for.
