I was looking at ways to start my "making decent money online" journey and the premise of using Instagram seemed great. At the moment I would be happy just to get $5 per day on it to be honest. All I have done so far is set up an account about food and followed about 100 people interested in the same niche, so far 20 people have followed back. This was yesterday. What I would like to know from you guys, since I haven't found too many posts orientated to complete newbies like me, is how I can grow my account? I'm willing to spend $7 (I understand its not much but its literally all I have) and there are two things I would love to know from you guys. Firstly, is it smart to buy followers? (feel free to promote your own service that accommodates for this in this post if that's allowed, since I haven't found a particularly good/trustworthy one yet) and how exactly do I go about growing it in any other way is possible. Secondly, other than perhaps Amazon Affiliate offers or something along those lines and shoutouts, could anything else work? I know the questions probably look silly but I am completely new so sorry for that. Any feedback or basic guidance would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
