    So, I've read a lot of journeys here on the forum and I've appreciated them. I found them interesting and really helpful.

    *​First of all sorry for my bad english :(

    I've started more or less 1 month ago on Instagram.

    Right now my account has:

    - 8,6k Followers
    - 500-550 Likes per post (I think that is quite low)
    - 5-10 Comments per post
    - 3/4 Pictures uploaded per day

    I decided to write my journey because one of the strenghts of this forum is the interaction with other users, and I think that through this interaction I can grow a better account -> advices will be really appreciated!!

    I need your help in:

    - Monetization on Instagram: when I can start? What can I do?
    - Methods to grow my audience/engagement(hashtags?)
    - Massplanner, Followliker?

    I'll try to update the thread every day, and i hope to receive advices!

    I wrote in the title "Road to something good" because I haven't a clear goal, but I want to grow a succesful account.

    If you've gained 8k real followers in 1 month, that is impressive. You sure are on your way to bigger and better things. As others have posted, nothing good comes until you reach about 100k real followers, 7K+ likes per photo.

    You haven't told us what niche you're in. If it's adult, then, even 100k won't get you much. Not too many "respectable" companies are willing to pay for advertisement.

    I think 8k followers with 500 likes per post is pretty good.

    In your situation I would do shoutouts for shoutouts.

    Follow Liker is nice, kind of buggy right now but it'll hopefully be fixed soon.

    Thanks for your answers.

    They're all real followers, but obviously I've made follow/unfollow (yes, I'm newbie, but not as newbie to not know follow/unfollow method).
    I partially agree with you, because real monetization requires more or less the numbers you've said, but i was thinking to start something when I'll reach 20-30k.
    I'm not in adult niche, but it's a popular one.

    Shotouts can really help me to grow? And obviously shotouts with other accounts related to my niche?

    Yeah, I was thinking about FL or MassPlanner, I will try the second one(10$/mo) because I don't want to spend 70-100$ right now. I'll try to earn money in the future with monetization, and so I'll pay FL.

    Follow/unfollow. Right now I'm not growing as fast as when I started. Maybe, when I'll start with MassPlanner, I'll grow about 250 new followers per day I think.

    Yeah i'd recommend MP right now for a single account. FL if you look to start a few more. And I would definitely keep the SFS in the same niche if you can!

    I would recommend MP as well. Although it has monthly subscription it is worth every penny, the dev keeps updating all the time and is easy to chat with!

    I think you are going the right way. But dont be ambicious at the beggining. First you have to invest and then you get results. I wouldnt consider monetizing before 50K. I am building an account for a new client and in a month I already reached 30K and have to deliver it at 40k. Dont get desperate. Instagram will bring you money if you use it well and in a clever way.

    In my personal opinion dont use follow liker or any of those, Instagram is banning lots of accounts lately and you can lose your account.

    Be organic!

    it's fckn annoying that you're mentioning in EVERY post that you build accounts for clients. like, who cares?

    I hope people understand that you're doing some kind of promotion here.

    Ty, and good luck for your journey that's really interesting. We have some points in common.

    I bought 1 month MP. I'm looking for the best settings. I'll use it for 2 accounts: in the main one I want to be careful, because I don't want to get banned.
    In the second account I'll try some experimentations.

    Is it risky to use MP nowadays on Instagram? There are settings you recommend me to stay careful?

    Ty :)




    - 8,8k followers
    - 500-550 likes per picture. (I'm trying to grow it but nothing..)
