    Hey boys and girls.

    Im a 24 years old guy with some time free, with some experience in social marketing, blogs, seo etc.
    I'm a old member of this forum even that i'm kinda quiet :D

    I run at this moment 4 blogs which makes me around 200$ on month each but i'm not satisfied, i also have a real job in IT business as a network engineer, that means alot of free time. I have read alot on this forum about instagram and I said I could try this also. I have no plan for monetizin yet, i have learned that you must own something and after that you must think at how to sell it, but here are different oppinions.

    Instagram

    Most important until now, i do all the work manually.

    I have started one account in the fashion niche last week, here are my stats until now :

    Posts : 30
    Followers : 741
    Following 1473

    Engagement until now is kinda low, i have like 40-60 likes per post and 3-4 comments but i guess i need more followers.

    I follow like 20-25 people on hour, and always the one which have liked a photo, for me that means they are active.
    I dont follow people with private profiles , so it will be easy to unfollow them.
    I like 10-20 per hour but not randomlly, i like..what...i really like :D
    I comment if i really want / need to comment.

    I dont have any ideea how i will get some money from this, but i have some ideas because i have a business in the same nich with dropshipping...maybe will work here also.

    I will post updates every day if i can.

    Wish me luck, also if you have suggestions, tips, tricks....im oppened at suggestions.

    PS: Excuse my english, im not a native speaker but i try my best.

    Best Regards,
    -Lorentzo

    Followers : 102
    Following 2081

    All work manually

    And now the wired part

    As i make all the work manually i usually like some pics, maybe comment etc, and people respond me and they engage...i made some firends theese days really...all girls cuz i have a womens fashion profile...

    It's about just work..sometimes i just enter to speak with my girls :D

    I must be dumb but i enjoy this journey.

    Checking in to see how you're doing on your journey.

    Honestly, you should work on that follow back ratio.. you follow over 2k but only had 100 follow you back! You could have had at least 400 followers from following so many people.. not sure why your ratio is so low. Might want to check that out and work on it.

    Keep it up

    You should be careful with placing links in your page, especially if it's new.
