    Hey guys, I am quite new to these forums, created an account a year ago but never really came back but now I'm here - and I'm ready to embark on an Instagram journey.

    In this journey, I will be developing ONE account naturally, with no software such as FollowLiker and MassPlanner; I will be doing this on an account which currently has 14460 followers in the comedy/meme niche which I built up myself without using software, I just haven't used the account properly in ages and will be using it again soon. Anyhow, during this journey, I will show you all the changes that have occurred on my account, positive and negative, increases in followers and decreases and potentially sales information as I plan to open a shopify if this account succeeds. I will update you all every few days with something of the format below.

    INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT PROGRESS:
    No. Of Followers - 14467 (+7)
    No. Of People I am Following - 1364 (+214)
    No. Of Posts on Account - 1384 (+1)
    Profit Gained from Account So Far - £16.32 (No gain/loss)

    The aim of this journey is to show people how an account can grow organically without software, mainly for those who are unable to afford software with subscriptions! I hope I can get all of your support help and will see you at the next period of time that I update this. Thanks for reading this.

    Those are some really good numbers! And you can definitely grow your accounts organically, it might take a lot longer and some really creative methods which is a lot more easier with the help of some automatic and innovative services but it sounds really good for the newbies who don't want to spend much money.

    Good luck with your journey.

    Thank you!
    Decide on a niche for your account, find posts and upload them - follow people who are following bigger pages from the same niche and you should gain some followers; continue to do this for a very long time haha.
    Indeed, it will take much longer but I will hopefully be able to do it without spending a single penny on it! Thanks!

    How are you monetizing it?

    Currently not doing much, but I'm gonna start allowing paid shoutouts and when the page develops, I plan to open my own shopify with clothes I've designed myself.

    Good stuff dude... this should be in the Journeys section though, not in the Instagram one.

    Sorry, didn't realise that was the case - if someone could move this to the Journeys section, that would be brilliant, thanks for pointing that out.

    Haven't been too active on the account recently except for today and I've gained over 150 followers today; I could probably gain more if I followed more every day but I am progressing! Joined a few engagement groups recently but they were taking too long, sure, they increased my engagement by over 50 likes but it wasn't noticeable enough and was time-consuming. Also had one person get in touch regarding a promotion, so I may have a promotion soon perhaps. Will continue to post updates and try to be more active on the account. Progress shown below.
    INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT PROGRESS:
    No. Of Followers - 14621 (+154)
    No. Of People I am Following - 2049 (+684)
    No. Of Posts on Account - 1388 (+4)
