    Hi there, I'm an newbie from Dominican Republic.
    I have just started yesterday my first journey on Instagram!
    I created the account in the travel niche.
    I bought a cheap smartphone with a new simcard and i?m managing the account there and on my pc.

    I posted direct from the smartphone 100pics yesterday and after 1 hour
    i bought 5k traffic. (5k followers).

    I would like all the suggestions and help posible from this forum.

    Questions :


    1. Is 5k enough to start earning some money ?
    2. Is there any group available for this niche that i can join ?
    3. How can i slowing get some more traffic ?

    All your comments and reviews will be apreciated.

    Those are my current stats:

    First of all good luck, i hope you can achieve the goals you plan. But you should get some research done before you start, posting 100 pics is a bit too much to begin with and 5k followers were fake ?

    5000 followers getting 10-20 likes does not look good, Follow and unfollow pages in your niche for a week or so to get a good following who interacts

    5k followers is not enough to start making money, you need atleast 1000 interaction and 30k+ with good level of interaction

    YOu posted 100 photos??? NO!

    First of all will you follow an account that has no likes on 100 photos?

    I would only post 10 photos for a new account.

    Good luck with your journey!

    You have a wrong approach. IG is (in most cases) not a get rich fast scheme where you can buy followers and sell shoutouts on the day your account is created. If it were that simple, everybody would be doing it.
    You're very exposed and I wouldn't be surprised if your account would get the banhammer soon. 1 hour after account creation (or even 2 days) 5k followers + 100 pics uploaded? That's probably gonna set of some alarm bells at IG HQ.
    Plus followers mean nothing if your engagement sucks. So my advice would be to dump this account, start a new one. But first, do your research about IG. Because the way you started out your journey leads me to believe you didn't do very much of that.

    Good luck with your journey, but start off slow to avoid getting your accounts banned.
