    Hey all,

    New to Instagram, so I'm excited to see how this goes. Really, it's a project to generate a form of passive income. I'm beginning with just one account and see how it goes - I know many start out with many accounts but I want to see how this one goes before dedicating more time.

    Niche: Beautiful photos

    It's my third day (Apologies for not starting on day 1):
    Day 1: 40 followers
    Day 2: 123 followers
    Day 3: 264 followers


    Growth is quite slow, I'm posting new content every 4 hours. I'm ONLY using Instagress bot on fast mode and manual but not sure if this is sufficient?
    Definitely welcome to new ideas and advice!

    With every photo, I'm tagging around 8 hashtags, Instagress is set on commenting, liking and following. How can I increase my growth?

    Engagement is also around 40 likes and 1 comment per photo - that's 20% is that good?

    Good luck with your journey! 10k followers is an easy task to achieve, just with a follow/unfollow method. I'd use 30 hashtags (max) for each post, and put them as a comment under your photo, not in the description section, because you can delete the hashtags after some time. Likes and comments might help you, but I think follow/unfollow is the fastest way to gain targeted audience.

    Thanks for the advice! I'm doing the follow/unfollow method right now but as you can see, I'm getting around 100 follows day whereas on other journey threads, I see other getting around 300 or more a day. Are they doing anything different to me in particular??

    Try to post some questions in the description, or just "Tag your friend if he..." things. Interaction usually increases engagement.

    you can't really compare you're engagement right now since many of your likes and comments probably are not even your followers.
    once you hit 2-3k followers you can check for engagement again.

    Quick update on day 4: 356 followers!

    Thanks for the advice evreyone! My Instagress trial is about to run out so I might pick up Follower Liker instead, seeing all the positive reviews on this thread. Anyone have any comments on this? And what's the deal with VPNs and all?

    I've secured a mutual shoutout deal with an account with a similar niche and similar follow count. Hopefully that works out.

    Otherwise, I really want to push for 1000 followers in 3 days max. Actually, if I get Follow Liker, I'm going to start a few more accounts just so that I can earn more income faster.

    Will keep you all updated.

    It was a difficult task for you, I think it should be easier to get 10k followers on Instagram.
    Congrats! Keep it up.

    356 in the first 4 days though is very impressive.

    Update:
    Day 5: 456 followers!
    I extended my Instagress time for another 10 days - going to grow it a little more before moving onto Follower Liker. Going to create another 4 accounts today but won't work on them a lot until I get Follower Liker so it's less work for me.

    The 1K mark is approaching fast!

    Wonder when I can start seeing some return...

    If you are only doing one account, you can gain +300 or more a day manually and or with a little instagress while you're busy throughout the day. I would use the bots on the other accounts and eventually push traffic towards your main one. Don't bother with shoutout trading until you are much larger, you might gain 2-5 new followers, which is not worth your efforts. Good luck

    Thanks for the advice so far guys!

    Ok, so I just tried setting up 2 accounts and looks like Instagram is getting suss since they asked for mobile verification and I only have one mobile number. I was stupid enough to enter the same number on both accounts, which made instagram keep asking me for verification as soon as a logged out of one account and into the other.

    I deactivated one of them temporarily and will be holding onto one account until I get follower liker, VPS and proxy. Expecting costs to be around $150 for this month.

    Really hope I can start earning big in a couple of months

    Hey man good luck on your journey.
    I got mentored by a guy who went from 0 to 50k followers in 3 months and I compiled his knowledge in a quick manual "how to go from 0 to 1246 Followers in 5 days". If you want to read it go to this page (without the spaces, can´t post it yet :(
