    Hello,

    My vehicle related account (not cars) is now at 57,000 followers and I thought I would make a "road to 100k" thread to share my experiences, but also to keep motivation high.

    My last 10 or something days have been amazing, I've grown almost 6000 followers and each day brings in 500+, but more on that later.

    I plan to make another thread once I reach 100,000 called "Road to 200k", is that good idea?

    It's a great idea dude. I see you post regularly in the IG section and you seem to know a lot of stuff about IG, so 100k is not going to be a problem for you. Good Luck on your journey, I'm going to follow this :)
    btw. how many IG accounts do you have ?

    100K projection date: 2016-10-31

    4th of May 2016

    Yesterday I got a "viral" video with over 30,000 views, I earned 873 followers during the day.

    Today is soon over and I've earned 747 followers up until writing this.

    I use Socialblade for my statistics and they project me to reach 100k by 2016-10-31

    Thank you for the kind words!

    I'm starting to build a secondary account now, it's in the car niche and currently has 700 followers after 3 days.

    Always always always choose a niche you enjoy yourself, if you wouldn't follow your own account staying motivated will be incredibly hard.

    I post during 8am in the morning and then another on at 8pm in the afternoon.

    8am: Video with the goal to get a lot of "tags" during the day (funny/crazy video)

    8pm: My best video with the purpose of as many views as possible (amazing/cool)

    Thanks for the support

    I'm more interested in how much money you make from certain niches from IG. Not really bothered on the amount of followers, I'd rather have 1000 from 1000 people that buy than 100k followers and 10 buy.

    I can already tell you will never have a successful account from your attitude.

    If you don't run an account you personally enjoy working on you will sell yourself short and get frustrated.

    Any niche is a goldmine if you know what you're doing, just follow you own personal interests and stop focusing on the money.

    My following reached 0 today which looks really good imo.

    Gained about 750 followers yesterday, really stable day.

    My 100k projection date (socialblade) is jumping down by around 5 days every day which keeps my motivation high :D
