    Hi blackhats!

    I have been playing around with a few of the methods here on BHW with my dogs IG account, and so far i have reached 10.5k followers. I'm pretty happy with the result considering my lack of effort posting new pictures.

    So I have decided to start a totally fresh IG account where I will be a lot more active while i use some of the same methods!

    This is how i startet my journey:

    I started of looking for good names for my account that was available by simply typing in all sorts of names where you register for the first time. After about 1 hour i had 4 good names and 1 i thought "how on earth can this be available?". Did i stick with the really good name? Guess you have to wait and see!

    So now i have 5 good names, how do i decide the one to go all in on?
    My first thought was easy access to good content - 4 good names left.
    Second thought: A name that would naturally create engagement - 2 good names left
    Third thought: Easy niche to monetize with lots of options considering types of products - Still 2 good names left
    Fourth thought: Competition - Still 2 good names left

    Back to third thought, and this is how i decided! Would i go for a specific niche to get more popular with the company's working with that type of product? Or would i like to have my options and also be 100% sure my commercials would look just like a normal post?

    Well i decided to have my options open, that way i'd be sure to get a partnership. You where probably right, i went with the "how on earth" name!

    I created the account
    Googled free pictures and found a site that shares pictures for free, also for commercial use.
    Postet 5 pics within the first 4-5 hours - Got about 25 followers only with hashtags(Not more then 6 tags per pic).
    Made a subscription for archie.co (3 days free trail) - I'm not affiliated with this site(Already posted here on BHW)
    Posted another 4 pictures the next day
    Bought about 2k followers
    Bought 100 likes for each picture
    Still posting pic and buying 100 likes for each to make it look like i already have good engagement with my followers.

    I have only been doing this for 3 days now, and can already see my own hashtag being used on IG!

    I will make sure to give you all new updates as i go :)

    And last but not least!

    Do you have any ideas for how i can speed up the prosess?
    Should i buy even more followers to look more attractive?

    Feel free to share any knowledge you have that may help me with my journey! I do belive I can make this account really big, simply because of the name, it's that good!

    Ps. Sorry if my English is of! I'm just a simple viking from Norway :confused:

    25 followers with hashtags is really good!

    10k is a solid start, good luck OP!

    That kinda surprised me aswell. 25 followers within the first hours with nothing but tags. Feels like its hard to get the first few followers, not a lot of people would like to follow someone without any followers!

    Im happy with the 10k considering i have only uploaded 47 pictures! Average likes per pic is about 1.7k.

    Thank you all for supporting me! I will work on my text format :)

    Just a little update:

    Its been going slow the first few days with only 59 real followers. But i just added super targeting where i will autolike pictures from two of my biggest competitors followers! Lets hope this will speed up the prosess.

    Would also like to add that there is now 47 pictures on instagram with my own hashtag, and only 12 of these is mine.
