Hey all, (english is not my native language, but i give my best to write as correctly as possible) i decided to take my private Instagram account to the next level and would love to document it here. Maybe i can get some advice from you guys. First of all: the current status. Follower: 290 Posts: 31 Age: My Account is already about one year old but have only been used on private purpose. Nothing special about that. How do I want to approach it? Honestly, I have no idea. I am a total noob in social media. But after a few hours of reading threads out of this forum I made a plan: Posts: Quality: High Content: Niche (+ now and then about my life? Just for the personal touch?) Frequency: Once or twice a day. Hashtag: ~15 per Post. 2 or 3 are variable and depending on the post, the rest ist always the same and some of the most famous hashtags according to "TagsForLike" Timing: Randome. To increase my followers I also use Instagress with following settings: What: Like, Follow, Unfollow Speed: Medium Hours/day: Random between 5 and 7 hrs. daily (max. 210 likes, 140 follows and 105 unfollows per day) Source: Hashtags for likes and the most famous accounts of my niche for follows. I distribute the active hours between 7 am and 11pm to make sure, that it looks as realistic as possible. My questions: - Can I like/ follow/ unfollow on a higher rate and a longer period of time per day, without taking risk to get banned? - Is it helpful or necessary to post also pictures of my private life, beside my work? Pictures of me, while I am "at work"? Is that giving a personal touch or is it disturbing? Thank you so much for your time! I am very thankful for every kind of help that you can give me! I will try to give you a daily uptade. Never the less I will document the complete journey here. Even when i decide to wuit, I will write it down here and give you my reasons. Greetz, mg.
