    either are not making money & have a fairly low following something I noticed. I don't see many success stories related to Instagram here. Anyone else feel the same?

    The only reason a lot of people aren't making money off here is that they aren't willing to put in the effort. You will notice that a lot of new people will make a few posts asking how to grow on ig and then when they realize they can't get to 1m within 30 minutes of starting, they leave.

    Well, Instagram is IMO way harder to make money comparing to Facebook or Twitter.
    Its very easy to get followers but you can't post links (expet bio ofc).

    My full time company is buying and reselling concert/sports tickets. I am on a very similar forum there and have been on it for 7+ years. I can tell you that the ones who are making the money and very successful do NOT post. They are too busy making money.

    I think the same thing is happening here.

    successful people mostly keep their mouth shut. They don't want competition. Do they ?

    There's always skepticism with BHW and who is actually making money. I like to believe that most people are making decent money, if they're not, I don't know how they're still alive really.

    Instagram is really hot right now and I see people talking about that way more than other social networks, so I don't know where you're looking.

    It blows my mind sometimes when (in my main biz) people would rather run their mouths to act like a big timer on a message forum than keep it shut so that they can just make the money.

    But yes you nailed it. Loose lips sink ships :D

    That being said if any six figure IGers want to spoon feed me the secrets to their IG success for some info on how to make $$$ reselling tickets then drop me a line ;)

    The ones making pretty good money won't talk about their success until they move onto their NEXT biz venture. This is so people don't boggle them down with "how did you/can you teach" sort of questions.

    Another reason would be, just like anything worthwhile in life
    95% of people start something
    give their 50% to it
    realize it's harder than they thought
    lose motivation
    fall behind
    and eventually just quit.

    The rule of 95% applies to anything in life from my observations.

    l4l groups with good accounts that are growing fast with good engagement. Without engagement groups, I wouldn't be able to hit 100k on 1 account within 6 months.

    You'll find botting limited after a while.

    The reason you don't see any succes stories is because those who are succesfull stay quiet and don't have time to brag about it.

    I remember when most of people didn't know about the power of likes on Instagram, and were just doing s4s to grow. And then some peoples began to spread the like for like strategy, and I'm pretty sure they regret it a lot now (including me). So that why peoples are no longer talking about their success and secrets...

    Most people fall off on a project when the going gets tough. But what I noticed, those who badly needs the money, more often than not, sticks to the journey until they're successful. You don't hear about them because once they succeed and they already know it can be done, they're off to conquer another mountain and earn even more. Too busy to even post. But I'm sure they read around here all the time. :)
