This journey has started 1/12/2016 Hey guys! I'm a rather new poster on BHW and have decided to start my own journey on Instagram. From this journey I am planning to learn new methods of growth and marketing that can further evolve into a more elaborate business. My Strategy: In the past I have grown small Instagram accounts, however they had not grown to significant heights. I am planning on using only one account during this journey in order to maximize all my effort into one source. This is my current analysis on my account: Followers: 114 Likes Per Picture (LPP): 12-18 I average around 12-18 likes per picture. The highest I have gone so far is 18 likes with hashtags. Currently I am following-unfollowing and attempting to engage with my users. The problem I am having is engagement. I post high quality photos, however struggle to gain a solid amount of likes. What I envision is 10-25 more followers every day and 10-15 more likes each day. I'm not using a bot in order to test my ability to grow stuff from scratch. In the future, there won't be a bot for everything and I feel it is important to learn this on my own. Monetizing? Well. I don't know. I wish to grow my account and strengthen my knowledge, however a decent marketing plan isn't bad. I plan to sell shout-outs when I grow considerably big, but I'm not worrying about that right now. Currently, I'm 100% focused on growing my audience and engaging with my followers. That's all for now. Please feel free to give me any suggestions you have. Chances are most of you are more experienced in this field and I would love to hear your opinion. I'd like to give updates daily and I will make it happen. One question that's been revolving around in my head is, can a niche be 'too' saturated? I feel my niche is quite easy to grow, however there is a chance it may be too saturated. When I've grown different niche accounts I've received better results through unfollowing than the ones I have seen from this account. Please let me know what you think!
