    Dear moneygreedy motherfuckers that we all are,

    I just came home from work, the worlds lamest promoting job ever. I work for Samsung.
    So when I was walking through the shop I was thinking about my Instagram account, about how to grow it further.
    It's actually quite succesful if I think about it that way.. You can come up with some great idea's whilst you are working your lame job.

    Whatever..

    I own this 10k account, which has potential in my opinion.

    Some stats:
    - Grows with 200-300f a day if bot is on following
    - Grows with 50-80f a day if bot is on unfollowing
    - Gets around 600-900 likes per pic
    - Gets around 40-200 reactions per pic

    The account has 10851 followers as we speak, and 833 following.

    The problem:

    I am stuck.
    Stuck with the idea of always staying at that growth of 300f max. daily.. The point is that this amount of 300f is decent/good, but I'm not satisfied. I've come to the conclusion that whatever account I own, I am never satisfied with the growth it has. I stay happy for about 2 days in case the growth doubles or something, but when it stays doubled for over 2 weeks I get unsatisfied again, in some cases this might be something good. But most of the times I find myself getting unmotivated by my 'unsatisfied-ness'. This is killing.

    I've been calculating, if the account grows steadily for the next year (365 days) with ~350f a day (knowing that the account will grow more whilst it grows bigger) the account will be at 138601 over one year. And believe me guys, that's fucking worth it.

    Schedule/planning:

    The goal for may is 25k, it's a bit more than 350f a day but I think I can achieve this goal.
    I'm planning on finding a good schedule to post, for now I'm posting 4 times a day, most of the time there's 4 hours in between except for the night, that's cuz the account has a lot of european followers.
    I'm also planning on updating this thread at least once every two days, you guys have to remind me of that. See it as some kind of payment for my 'expierence and guidance', I'll keep this thread alive if you motivate me to do so. Don't see this as a negative thing because that's just the way I am, I need to stay motivated and I just can't motivate myself enough to do so.

    Monetizing:

    Fuck this, I wont fucking monetize this shit until i reach like 50-100k. I won't even dream about them benjamins for now, it will just de-motivate me because I know I won't make jack shit for the next 2 months AT LEAST.

    Bear with me, and enjoy this fucking journey.
    Because it will be huge.

    - Messiah

    I have and I wont. That's because if I do, I won't pay as much attention to the main account as I should. I'm trying to build a big and solid 'main' account.
    Once this acc has around 50k I'll start making babies.

    Good Luck! I suggest more accounts because its scalable. Its hard to maintain a certain follower level (ie 350) every single day. My accounts can swing rapidly from 35 to 300 followers, its a bit of a crapshoot. But this requires monthly investment. Proxies are the costliest, followed by VPS, then the bots cost themselves.Just like you, I'm not keen to monetize until my accounts are huge.Check my journey for tips. Already at 650,000 Followers and gaining 10,000 daily (across 104 accounts)http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...nstagram-journey-100k-4.html#post8872001Where are you scraping your content from?

    Once you build a decent main account you can start smaller ones in the same niche and constantly like and comment yourself for faster growth.

    11691f, grew 236f today.. Slightly less then usual. I'll start unfollowing after tomorrow because I'm following 2k people then and I think that looks shitty. Also I think people will follow me faster when the account looks cleaner.
