    Hello,

    I don't have much experience with IG so this thread will be updated with my fails and success. I'm currently growing 4 accounts, about a few days in. The plan is to post 3 times a day on each account and do follow/unfollow on 2 accounts and try out telegram groups on another.

    Plan for today.
    - Gather 21 pictures for each account, and form a good layout.
    - Do some research on hashtags, come up with a list that i will be using for each account
    (Looking for mainly under 20k hashtags and a few big ones)
    - schedule 3 post for the next 7days for each account
    - post on each account once more before bed
    - Do competitor research, see what type of content and hashtags people in my area are doing

    Account 1: 7 Posts, 16 Followers, 230 Following
    Account 2: 8 Posts, 94 Followers, 720 Following
    Account 3: 10 Posts, 55 Followers, 600 Following
    Account 4: 2 Posts, 214 Followers, 700 Following


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. My biggest struggle right now is finding good hashtags for all the posts i do for all 4 accounts.

    Make sure not to follow TOO much people when you are just starting, that's the mistake a lot of people make and they get into trouble because of it.

    perform split testing of your bot settings, test it out to see what gets banned and what doesnt .
    Record them

    I tried out buffer, you input all your info and then it sends it to your phone. It doesnt autopost but it schedules it so its not against TOS. Its free trial for 1 acc, and 10$ for multiple accounts

    Account 1: 117
    Account 2: 172
    Account 3: 351
    Account 4: 422
    Total: 1062

    I hit my goal of getting 1k Total followers. Today will be a rest day for the accounts.

    Plan for today. Finish scheduling my posts, 3 times a day for each account. Trying to lay out a theme so it doesnt look like im posting just to be posting. Finish up hashtag research and grow it further. Also, do research on competitors and find more account's to follow.

    Goal for wednesday: 1500 Follower Today.
