    Your thread is so inspiring! I am trying to manually grow 3 accounts in niches that I like, and now near to hit the 10k mark in each one :)
    You haven't used bots for your accounts. Neither proxys? Did you connect to all the accounts from the same IP?
    I guess it can be safe if you don't play near the limits

    Edit: ok, I found the answer, 1 account/phone with 4G. Difficult to do it in my country, with 4G data plans being so expensive

    Ive had to pee for over an hour now just couldn't stop reading. Great job , much respect on doing it manually, im going to do the same just maybe purchase accs with 5k followers to start :) Im thinking of starting with 2 to test.

    I have an iphone with my personal acc on it which i use at home with wifi and on the go with data. Say I make that acc one of the two i want to setup to post pics, could i only use it on 4g and never at home while using the second phone and acc only on wifi or on 4g if i bought another SIM.

    Thanks for all your time and hope to see you reach your goals in the future :eek:

    Pretty amazing journey, it's awesome to see something like this documented in this level of detail. Really appreciate you being so open and willing to answer questions.

    I have a couple of questions myself:

    1. I'd really like to know what sort of time you are putting into these accounts and how you manage it. How many hours a day are you / were you spending on this and was it in one big chunk or did you have to spread it out over x hours.

    2. At the beginning of the journey you mentioned that at 50k you made $1500 in a month. Was this made through selling shout outs, if not how did you generate the income?

    3. What methods are you using to generate your current 10-20k a month?

    Thanks

    I've been lurking this thread for a minute and I have a few questions to ask you.

    1. When you first started your main IG account, how did you grow initially?

    2. I have a very cohesive vision for my IG account with a niche that's not large yet, but I really enjoy it. What steps could I take to grow my account?

    3. I can't PM yet. Is there another way to speak to you privately?

    Hi, thanks for your reply

    I just mean the next: have you created all you accs from one device (mobile phone) and since that time you logging every you acc, posting pics, checking DM and etc from this device, ?
    And do you use proxy ?

    Thanks

    Found this thread on 1/06/16 and started my IG journey on that day. Today I'm at 4.1k followers, all because of you! 0 followers to 4.1k in under a month. Thank you so much, I'm exited to keep growing and to start to monetize.

    At how many followers did you begin to monetize? And how?

    Hi! I've found it a bit of a struggle to grow my IG account. I've read through your whole post and still need some advice.

    Loving your progress

    Hey man. Awesome read and congrats to reaching your goal! I have some questions about your giveaways. When have you started with giveaways? What was the value of these products? And do you create a second post announcing the winner of a giveaway? What kind of picture you are using for these giveaways? Pictures of the products? Please keep on and set yourself a new goal. One of the best journeys on BHW.

    inspiring... started a few niche accounts the other day. Up to 500 followers on my main one in 3 days. I still have a long way to go. I was doing Follow/ Unfollow but seriously thats way to time consuming - Plus I hate the look of more following/ to follower ratio... it screams spam.

    I am considering using follow Liker, or instagress. Using just the liking, and commenting method. I think that might be easier to stay under the radar. I feel my content is good, for 500 followers, I get about 100 likes per post, if I can keep that up to 100k I might be on to something.

    Quick question on followliker, how long is a license good for? I'm looking at the 5 account Instagram option, but not sure how long that purchase is good for.

    1 - How do you find those who want shoutouts ?? do you use sites like " buysellshoutout " , " igshoutouts " , " shoutcart " .... ?? ( can u tell me the exact sites ur using ?? ) OR u just put your e-mail in Bio and wait for people to ask u shoutouts by sending an e-mail ??
    2 - I have an account with 52K followers with 700 to 2000 likes per photo .. do I have to start monetize it or wait to reach 100K ??
    how much can I earn from 52K doing shoutouts ( just an estimate from u)
    Good luck for u to reach 10 M why not :D

    I'm new to this... but I'm pretty sure you with 52k followers can get some $ for shoutouts... granted 700-2000 seems a little low for 50k. Are all those 50k legit, or any bought? I get about 60-100 likes per 1000-2000 followers typically. Might be niche specific though.

    One of my accounts I bought 3000 followers a long time ago, and upset I did cause it throws off my active user ratio.
