    Hey everyone!

    So I've been lurking around here gathering information on and off for years but never took the plunge to actually use any of it, after coming back here about 2 weeks ago i finally decided i would start my instagram journey and start putting some of the massive amount of knowledge learnt here into action!

    So i started 2 instagram accounts about 2.5 weeks ago and have just been manually playing with them on a pretty moderate level for now.

    Im posting 3 times per day and following roughly 100 people per day on both accounts, I usually follow 25 people at once each time i post. Im getting roughly 30-50 follow backs per day and about 100 likes per photo on both accounts.

    I haven't been doing anything but following at the moment.

    Im going to be getting followliker in about a week and will be stepping things up then & will also be starting another 4-5 accounts in different niches. I have a solid plan to monetise each niche and plans on business's and sites to start etc. as well as to promote a personal account in the future.

    Account 1: 1475 followers / 1033 following

    Account 2: 1370 followers / 1163 following

    Will try to keep this as up-to-date as possible!

    Thanks!

    Haha why the negativity?!

    Good luck OP. My personal experience with Instagram has led me to believe there are 2 approaches to making money. (1) the spammy method, (2) the "organic" method.

    I used to favour the spammy method, using heavy bots to follow/unfollow, comment, like etc, trying to mine email addresses or get associate link clicks.

    Now I favour the organic method. I've been using a very discrete bot which only engages via likes, non-dangerous. It's a lot slower but if the end goal is to build a page that will never get banned, that provides a decent stream of revenue, I much prefer this technique.

    All you have to do after getting the software running is make sure your photos are high quality, continue to naturally engage with people (e.g. replying to their comments, commenting back on their photos, tagging them in your relevant posts), and I've found its easy to build a core fan base with this.

    Good luck and keep us updated!
