Why I want to reach 100k on IG

In the past ten years, the only thing other than IM I have cared about was fitness. I work out pretty much every day, and I eat right. I am finally below 8% body fat and still dropping some body fat off. I have tried pretty much every diet, workout plan, supplement. I have a lot of knowledge that I would hate not to use. And I also need to tie my working out to some business venture, because other vises I am just "waisting" time every single day in the gym. I know that working out keeps me sane, but at times I feel shitty for spending so much time at the gym. And don't get me wrong, back when I started with my body transformation almost ten years ago I would kill for the physique that I have now, but still. Kind of a waste of time, right?

I want to start obviously with just posting on IG, daily. Original content and gift to the rest of the platforms. If IG grows enough or any other acc on any social starts blowing up, I will concentrate on that also, and I will begin doing content for that platform also and not just reposting. Also, if things get big enough, I would like to add a Q&A podcast to this mix.

The primary growth strategy is https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/ingrowth-instagram-growth-service-free-trial-for-24-hours.1168149/

I am starting with a new account. I have two personal access 3k and 10k, but yesterday I was testing their reach, and it was almost zero to none, so that is why I instead created brand new acc.

Why am I not going to monetize this?

I don't need to atm. There are different projects that I do to make money. This is more a case study for me, and I will use the knowledge, etc.

Will I ever monetize?

I might start at 50k or 100k with either POD or even my brand, who knows. I am just not rushing to do this. I instead create a community and following first.

Why do I think I can succeed?

I don't need the money - > I won't be monetizing my audience. I can wait a few years :)
I will be sharing everything, from diet to workouts. Everything and we all know what ppl charging for this nowadays is...


My acc so far:
I signed up yesterday for brand new in acc. I've made only one post and gained already one follower the service is running just for a few hours.

I aim to post three times per day, all unique content, and reply to all comments, etc.

I think it could certainly succeed, however you're going to need some really engaging content to drive interaction.

My suggestion would be video content. Perhaps short 30 second - 1 minute long clips that show specific workout methods? You can kill two birds with one stone if you get someone to go with you to the gym, spend a few extra minutes having them film you do each workout. You could even do all of the video content in a single week at at the gym and then stagger each post so that one goes live every day.

With regards to monetizing the site, I imagine you'll get approached way before you even think about making money via it if the content is good and you're amassing followers.

What you have described is kind of my plan. I want to document this, rather than create content.

Ah! I understand now. Good luck with your journey. I'll be sure to keep an eye on this thread.
Thank you.
Best of luck with your journey dude:)
Hopefully, it will work out
Are you going to use some software for an insInstagramowth or do everything by hand?
I only upload and reply to comments. To grow, I am using Ingrowth service here on BHW.

Update:
Went from 0 to 10 followers :)
Uploaded only two pics yesterday and one story, I would like to post more often, but I am not used at all past few months.

10 followers in 24 hours?

Will be interested in hearing how this goes, as that works out at 300 followers a month for $35.

Well, this is my fault, not the service. I have an account that follows 0 people. I need to fix that now, and I will follow 5-10 people a day in my niche until I reach at least 50, so my acc looks real. Who would like to follow acc with 0 followers and 0 followings, right?
Also, I still have only three posts; just one day ago, there was only one post. Give me time; I believe things will improve once the account looks good.

Hopefully, you are doing better than I do.

Followers: 22
Total posts: 4 ( I posted once yesterday + 2 stories )

I had a few vids from the gym, but the quality was so bad I not use them. I guess I need more time to get adjusted to posting. I haven't posted it to my social for more than a year, maybe even more. I was posting only for my IM projects.

And also I have not following anyone on for a while, I need to observe what are people posting on what from that I am comfortable with posting on my social :)

I'd love something such as a Follow Jacker. I used one with Facebook once (no longer works) and gained over 200,000 fans by using it.
