    Hey bros, So I'm completely serious about everything i say so please do not laugh lol. I'm going to create a new IG account (have a 1.5k already but it's useless) And wanna know what subjects are more attractive to people (including you), I spent months and finally got more than 25k pictures (total of 20.2 GB) and I'm willing to upload them on my Instagram account, I'm pretty sure if i spend a lot more time, I can get soooo many more pictures. I just calculated if i upload 1 picture per hour everyday (impossible but just an example) It will be like:

    24 pics = 1 day

    168 pics = 1 week

    744 pics = 1 month (31 days per month lol)

    8760 pics = 1 year

    Basically => 25,000 all of pics / 8760 per year = 2.85 years

    So I can upload 24 pictures per day for almost 3 years (close) which is amazing, And my pictures are mostly about nature and other good stuff (cars+animals+flowers, etc)


    What do you think ? Am i going to be able to get +1m followers and monetize my account ? (not in 1 day obviously, I'm talking about a very big plan, It may take years)

    (I can get 10k followers instantly from some websites, Not sure if they are fake or not)


    Thanks guys, And sorry for my English, I just tried to tell ya everything

    One picture per hour would just get annoying to followers. Get something like massplanner and post 3-5 pics a day and only choose the best quality ones.

    You can certainly post 1 per hour using something like grum.co but I would advise against that.

    A good rule of thumb is to upload once every 3 hours, or even 4. Even THAT is pushing it and I wouldn't do that until you get at least 300-400 likes per pic on average.

    Thank you very much bros, Ok so, I believe there is 2 kind of people on IG, first group are the ones that get annoyed if they see 1 post per hour, And the second group always like to see fresh stuff (including me) in their favorite pages, If i really like a page, I would always like to see new posts there. But you guys are right, the 1st group are more than the second ones. I tried mplanner and didn't like it lol, But i will try grum co soon. to Grej: They are all high quality, So i think i don't have any problem with that. And about niche, to Johnsmth: I think that's a great idea, I think i have to check those images one by one and make 4/5 folders for each category.

    (if we say every image takes 5 seconds to find the current category/copy/paste", then 25k = 34 hours straight without rest. (shhh, i like math hahaha).

    to StevenHolt: good point, I think i can earn 100 likes per picture in the first week (hopefully)

    to June: Well you are right and wrong at the same time, I saw many pages with +500k followers and +10k posts that always post different pictures (Nature, Cars, etc) but By spam i got your point, I need to slow down a bit.

    Very good ideas bros, Thanks again, I really appreciate it. Does anyone have something else in their minds ?

    I don't know why you're focusing on photos. Focus on followers/making contact with people. Look at your account as pretty much a landing page and growth tool.

    Listen to this. You can post photos until the cows come home but it doesn't mean that you're going to have good engagement or followings. Just stick to posting no more than 2-3 photos per day.

    wow, interesting !! You must be one of the biggest Instagrammers now, But unfortunately I need to have 15 posts for sending private messages, So I will PM you as soon as i can.


    Well i think i focused on Photo because i was worries to run out of pictures and start posting the same photos over and over. Well that was really stupid because we have unlimited amount of pictures over the internet. So you are right i will focus on followers and making contact with people.



    with posting 3 photos per day i can keep my images for 22 years LMAO !!!!! and with this way, I can keep my Instagram account always updated and fresh. Thanks

    Wow, I never thought of collecting that many photos for my IG accounts. I can always use the same photos I posted months ago. Haha nobody will even notice if I have already posted a lot. Don't worry too much about it since there will always be new photos to scrape from other accounts/sites.

    haha xD You are completely right man, There is always new photos to scrape, even in Google Images. Like if you search for Nature today, the results are completely different than a few days ago. And you are right again, nobody will notice i repeated a photo twice or more than twice lol

    I just post 3-4 photos a day. Nothing more than that. Don't want to look spammy to my followers.

    I do this a lot, specially when I'm free, I usually scroll my news feed while liking people photos, commenting, and sometimes asking them if i am allowed to repost their photos or not. And btw doing such these jobs is good as long as you have less followers, You can't manage to be in touch with 100k followers, can ya ? ;)
