    One of my goal is becoming a fitness celebrity, I know it is saturated but people love to see ripped physiques. Is it possible to do this without having to mass follow people or liking their stuff?, I see fitness accounts with low following and yet millions of followers. Thank you and sorry for noob question.

    You're gonna have to bot for the first 100k followers then you can grow naturally like all those other big ig celebs.
    But you HAVE to bot for the first 100k or more since you need that initial push.

    Both these answers are factually wrong. I know 100-300k accounts that have done absolutely ZERO bots, engagement groups or shout-outs. Leverage other platforms - Youtube, Facebook, High DA sites. It is possible,
    It is a lot of work but possible. The guy who did the twin brother kyle jenner feed never botted. I've worked with agencies that tracked and "traced" his accounts for auto-likes and F/UF. We examined all his comments to see if he did any engagement.
    His followers have been vetted over and over.
    None. 100% organic. SocalityBarbie is another example.

    There are thousands on accounts on ig that are trying to grow without botting and some of them(*very few) make it. You can't justify not botting by pointing out the few accounts that do grow organically since, like I pointed out earlier, there are thousands if not millions that AREN'T growing organically despite trying to grow.

    On the other hand, ALL accounts that are boted grow, some may grow slowly while others can grow extremely fast all dependent on how well you setup the bot.

    Now if you want op to take that leap of faith in hopes he'll be like one of the 2 accounts you mentioned then sure, go ahead. But I know the op isn't a dumbass that leaves his ig acc's growth to luck.

    Good night!

    Yes of course! First, you need to bot 10k followers. Then join engagement groups and post high quality and high targeted every day. So at 10k followers, you'll gain 10 followers a month. So by the time you hit 50k followers, you'll be gaining about 50 followers a day organically, and so on and so on. But with shouts and likes, you'll gain a lot more. If you do sfs with a 10k then you should expect to gain an additional 10 followers.

    Well i started new acc with 0 followers 7 days ago, now i have 1k. All manual without bot. I get top post in almost every 30 hashtags i post. Engagement rate 25%. I dont know how fast i'm going to be famous or hit 100k+ but that's not even my goal. Goal is quality account, keep good relations with my followers and good engagement. But yes i think it's possible. And i mean you can bot some other account's same time tho. And this is with niche account.. fitness celebrity? i dont know. alot harder thats for sure.

    Bots will definitely help you get started...purchasing shoutouts or accounts is also a good place to start...The best advice you can get is to post quality content daily and consistenly and if people like it, you will grow

    Your stats comforted my brain. Perfect.

    And yes it can be done, but why not use a little bit of bot help too?
    Also collect email leads, it's powerful. Send them to a squeeze page and get their emails.

    Of course you can. Create a brand image, be an athlete yourself or have an unique edge. Focus on a certain part of body building that's niche, and be consistent! Always engage with your audience when they reach out to you or comment on your pics. Have giveaways, be creative!

    Do you have a initial set of friends and known people that'll vote your stuff?

    Going organic in 2017 is hard now cuz Facebook is applying all their money strategies to IG, it's becoming pay for play just like FB is for commercial stuff. So long as your IG looks personal and not professional, you should be able to grow organically. But if they review it and it seems commercial, they'll limit your reach and you'll need to buy ads.

    Utter BS.

    On an IG forum that I moderate, one of the members has gone +40k followers in just over a month, after stopping botting at 10k (So he's at 50) That answers your question OP, yes it is possible to get famous without botting. He's in the fitness niche like you and has grown soooo well!
