    I just recently join BHW so I would first like to say thank you for then knowledge that I couldn't find elsewhere.
    I have been using a twitter of mine for Tweetdeck use (Joining a group of accounts to get RT's) and although I knew monetization was possible I enjoyed getting RT's and building an active following. Reading on here has made me think of switching to Instagram because I feel like I can connect to an audience more.

    I opened a new fresh Instagram account yesterday, and have been doing follow for follow (F4F) to gain.
    The niche is a vibe/tumblr post account, every post is High Quality.
    Day 1: 312 Followers ; 1255 Following
    Day 2: 698 Followers ; 1982 Following (So Far)
    Getting around 30% followback is my goal although I would like higher.

    My goal is to have a network of niche accounts like most of you do, (fitness/lifestyle, gaming, etc.)
    I am wondering if I should invest in FollowLiker because I can already see the amount of time that this one account using F4F takes.

    My 2016 goals are
    50k Quarterly, this means I would like to gain
    -50k by March
    -100k by June
    -150k By September
    -200k by December

    Monetization is the goal but obviously 700 followers won't net me anything.

    Any tips/tricks or other things I should know I would love to hear them. :cool:

    If your goal is to have a network of niche accounts, then you should definitely invest in a bot like FollowLiker. Manual work is very tedious and time consuming specially for a lot of accounts. Good luck!

    Invest in FL, it will help a ton to manage / grow multiple accounts at once.
    Why waste time growing 1 account to 10k followers, when you can grow 10 accounts to 10k followers within the same time?

    Anyways best of luck :) will follow along

    Benefits of using Mass Planer compared to Follow Liker? They seem pretty much the same just monthly cost compared to the one time fee.

    END DAY 2:
    I made some nice progress, hitting over 1000 followers and keeping above my goal of 30% follow back.

    -Day 2: 1072 Followers ; 2852 Following
    The account pulls 50 likes within an hour, which is more than I was expecting so I'm happy about that.

    Gonna start another account over the course of Day 3 and do both manually until that one hits 1000 as well.
    Is it worth investing in some early shoutouts to get some extra followers? And if so anyone reputable with good prices?

    I'm hopefully looking to have that by next week with the way progress is going. No promises of course but I hope I have it soon. Cheers!

    END DAY 3:
    Account 1 is still growing at the rate I want it to which is awesome. Decided to open a fashion account as well. Working on both was getting annoying so I am using the MassPlanner free trial to see how it goes. Settings are mild on it as I don't really know to much about what I should be putting.

    Day 3:
    Account 1(Vibe/Tumblr): 1401 Followers; 3552 Following (329+ Followers)
    Over 30% FB and can pull 50 likes within a half an hour to an hour depending on when I post. Overall pretty happy.
    Account 2(Fashion): 376 Followers; 1345 following (376+ Followers)
    The account was aged before I used it, (had old IG profile with 0 following/following) Trying to really pin-point my audience in MP so I can have engaged customers but still gotta mess around with it.

    Overall gain: +705 Followers

    Working on getting ratios down because I know it can be unattractive to some potential followers if a ratio is very low.

    I'm planning on definitely investing in either MassPlaner or FollowLiker, leaning more toward FL because I have the cash upfront to get the lifetime licence. Also thinking about opening a couple fresh accounts and letting them age for a couple weeks as well as running MP. I am also going to be looking for Dedicated Proxies and a VPS.

    Felt like posting everyday was a bit much, so i'll be posting when i feel i have mad a significant gain.

    I opened another account so I am now at 3, it is a personal/lifestyle niche.

    I plan on buying FL next week and up-scaling to many accounts like 15 instead of the 3 I have now.
    Account 1(Vibe): 1872 Followers
    Account 2(Clothing): 477 Followers (This account doesnt fair aswell as the others, Not sure if its the niche or the content I'm posting I will try to change my strategy)
    Account 3(Lifestyle): 818 Followers

    Two days ago I had 1777 Followers, now I have 3167. Thats an average of 600 a day 200 per account.
    I'm going to lay low for this week and follow all the unfollowers/not following back, I have been pushing pretty hard on these accounts and I don't want to risk any suspension.

    Are you using a bot for follows? If so which and what's your plan once you've reached considerable numbers?

    Just mass following through hashtags and famous accounts in the niche. The accounts are old so I can follow like 600 in a day w/o worry. I Plan on buying followliker next week and setting up more accounts on dedicated proxy's, but for now its just by hand.

    Also plan on selling shoutouts/possibly setting up an Authority page and setting up either PPC or CPA.

    Not at the moment, I don't see the benefit from having fake followers right now. I can see boosting the page more when I hit around 10-15k, but atm it would be to much and make the interaction look sloppy and weak.

    Hi, I'm building an account too and know they have followers more than 5k. Can you help me too? Please PM me your skype if you're willing to help me. Thanks.

    Anyway, good luck with your journey OP. You have a very good start. Have you bought FL already?
