Hey everyone! So, I've been following this forum quite a bit in the last few months and after starting my blog in the money niche, I decided it was a bit too much for me for the moment and i'd want to try and start my own Instagram account. Keep in mind, I've never used Instagram in the past, so it should be interesting. My goal: Reach at least 10k followers and try to sell shoutouts eventually. I'll be doing this all manually, as i dont want to spend on bots honestly. I'll mostly monetize it through shoutouts and possibly by redirecting my followers to a site where i'd be promoting amazon affiliates or clickbank products (not sure about this yet). I'll probably be posting every few days, so keep an eye out for this! I started yesterday morning and I'm currently at 342 followers. My strategy as of now is to follow around 100 or so people every hour. I usually just go on bigger accounts and just follow the people who like their pictures and generally a decent amount of people follow me back. I try to post 2-3 pictures per day, usually spread out. What my plans for today are: Try to keep following ~100people/hour Try to get a shoutout from other accounts (Free one, even if i know this will be hard to do, but i'm trying not to spend money). Play with the limits a bit more, try to figure out more or less how many people i can follow/unfollow per hour without getting banned. If you have any questions let me know!
