INTRODUCTION Hello guys, this is my first time posting here on bhw. I know my profile says I’m a newbie, that’s because I prefer being quiet and I tend to not participate in a lot of discussion. I’m here on bhw since 2017 and I’ve learnt A LOT so today i thought I could give back some of the things i learned. INSTAGRAM 2019 In the last years Instagram went through a lot of changes: the classic follow/unfollow method still works but will never give you the same results as 2 years ago. What I do with Instagram is create pages based on QUALITY and not quantity. I believe that will make you way more money a page with 1M followers that 100 pages with 10k followers. So let’s start! PROFILE SET UP I’m not gonna focus on how to choose a niche, there are plenty of great guides on bhw. The rules are always the same: choose a quality username, NO “[email protected]” or other spammy looking symbols. For the name go for something that includes your niche keywords since the name will be visible in the search results. EX. PICTURES: In order to grow a quality account pictures and/or videos MUST be of the best quality. You can repost picture from other accounts and give them credits or you can search picture directly on google. There are even some paid service on fiverr if you need a lot of picture immediately to set up posting bot and don’t manually select the every day. EX. BOT / METHOD: Now let’s get to the serious stuff, READ VERY CAREFULLY: This is the list of action I do every day on every one of my accounts. 400 likes in your niche (start with only 50 in the beginning and than increase) 50 comments on posts in your niche NO follow/unfollow until you reach 1000 followers, than bring the number of people you follow down between 0 and 15. In the beginning the number of new followers per day will decrease but this is a necessary step! Instagram doesn’t ban people who follow/unfollow but will limit their reach. So this technique may bring you results in the early stages but will limit your growth in the long run. once you get to 1000 followers join an ENGAGEMENT GROUP, this step is what will make your profile grow very very fast if you have good content. contact pages in you niche with similar amount of followers as you and ask to exchange shoutouts. You can also pay some shoutouts but be always careful, some pages have a lot of followers but their engagement rates are horrible and you will and up paying $10 for a useless shoutout. Always check how many likes their picture have (good over 5% of their followers), if the shoutout is in their stories ask always a screenshot of their current stories to see how many people have seen it, some times their engagement rate is good but no one watched their stories! Now, you could do all of this manually but I think using bot is way better, personally i like jarvee but really any bot that works is good. HOW TO MAKE MONEY Finally the good part! Now, immediately FORGET ABOUT AFFILIATE OFFERS! they work great with bulk accounts but using them on a quality account is just a waste. SHOUTOUTS: selling shoutouts is a great way to make money. some rules: never post more that a shoutout per day never post scammy/fishy post never post thing completely unrelated with your niche some price guides: 10k - 10$ post, $5 story 50k - 20$ post, $10 story 100k - 40$ post, $20 story 500k - 100$ post, $50 story 1m - 200$ post, $100 story and on forever... SELL YOUR OWN QUALITY PRODUCT: start a shopify shop and sell your own product (t-shirt, books, whaterver comes to your mind), you can surely find more information on how to start a shopify in the forum! be careful that this method can be risky and not make you any money, but if done correctly can bring your earning to another level. OTHER: be creative! there are plenty of ways to make money once you have a quality instagram page!
