    Hello! This is my first post on the forum. I've been lurking for quite a while and decided to join recently.

    I did some research and instagram seems like a good method to learn the basics of IM. Created my account a week ago in the dog niche, started following today. Will plan on growing it organically by following/unfollowing and liking.

    Followed aproximately 42 people today. (Some did not accept)
    Got 9 followers back
    Maximum likes: 30

    Anyone has a link or post where i can see the instagram limits?

    I will probably monetize it at around 10k by selling shoutouts. Started this thread to keep track of my progress.

    Good luck and a good tip is get mass planner it helps a lot on automation instead of you manually following people

    I'll be doing it manually. At least for now. Day 2 stats:

    Following: 106
    Followers: 27
    Highest liked post: 150

    I try to follow 50 people a couple times a day. That seems to be working pretty good.

    I am following 2 times a day, 100 people from a targeted group regarding my niche. 30-40% follow back, but some of them after some time unfollow, but most of them stay. Likes per picture i got 70+ on every post. Adding hashtags proper for the content. You will be in the safe zone to follow even more, 3 times x 100 people will respond even better.
    If you have some other tricks, please share ;)

    Thanks everyone!

    I use a list of hashtags i selected, on every picture. Regarding tips, I follow the people that liked the most recent posts of some big pages. Especially the posts with low likes. As far as I noticed, those bring the best followers and have the most succes. For pictures i just repost some that i find good, from people promoting their pet. I was expecting them to not like that, but they all thanked me for sharing their account. So it's a win win situation.

    There are some bots on github written on python, they could help you to automate the process for free. They can do almost anything (follow, like, unfollow, commenting, follow and like people by hashtags you need... etc). Just do a little search and read manual howto setup. Thats easy

    I checked but don't have the time to look into it too much. Found a good bot for 10$, will think about buying it.


    MassPlanner is pretty expensive. If i had multiple accounts and higher numbers it would probably be worth it.
