    You've seen these before, they are not new but I need to keep a log of how I'm doing so I might as well share it with you guys.

    My goal:
    Grow the account. That's it so far. No bots, no money links at the minute, just grow the account and post good content. I want to learn what type of pics gets the best engagement. Once the account is doing well then I will start a money link.

    The account:
    It's about 2 years old, its my own account I registered. I posted a bit and got good engagement but I stopped. I only used it for a tester to see what the craic was with Instagram. I'm not sharing my account or niche.

    Content:
    It's not original content but there is plenty to grab off Google and a wide variety that I won't be posting the same as anyone else (I hope). I post when I feel like it or when I have a few mins spare. My only rule is atleast one post per day.
    I make sure that all my pics have a theme and I stick to it. If I deviate from the theme then I do it when 1) a new row of pictures will be started with my next post (ie my total number of posts is divisible by 3) and 2) I post 3 similar theme pics in a row so that the difference in theme will stand out but it's a nice solid row of pics and doesn't look too out of place.

    Engagement
    I have a good set of hastags that get me good likes anywhere from 15% to 63% (number of likes divided by followers). I plan to find more hastags and find which ones work the best. I will also be looking for more to use.

    I don't get many comments, mostly none, but I will be looking to improve this.


    Gaining followers:
    I currently follow and unfollow. I am currently unfollowing about 10-15 at a time and following the same amount at the same time. I will need to ramp this up but at the minute I'm just taking it easy as I got a like ban the other day after about 20 likes.

    I am also gaining some followers just from posts.


    So to the stats:

    Current posts: 23
    Followers: 178
    Following: 247
    Lowest likes per post: 19
    Highest likes per post: 113

    Any questions then ask away.

    I asked on another thread but was ignored:( ,
    Does anyone have a recommendation for a follow/unfollow tracking tool/app on Instagram? I have tried a couple but they dont seem that accurate.
    Thank :)
