    My Journey To 100,000 Instagram Followers


    Introduction:

    Hey, I'm 16 years old and live in the United States. I've been in the social media game for a while and I think it's time that I try to get 100,000 followers in a hard but very targeted and rewarding niche. It's something that many marketeers won't be going after as they won't have enough knowledge in the niche and I think that once I get around 10,000 followers things should pick up and it'll be history from there. :cool:

    Tools Used

    If I've learned anything from being in the social media game as long as I have it's to never do stuff manually. You want to automate as much of it as possible, It just so happens Instagram is the hardest to automate but here are some of my tools.

    FollowLiker - http://followliker.com/

    This will interact and get me fans, if you're a newbie using this software you're going to get mediocre results but once you're able to fine tune it and get all the right hashtags then this software will do most the work for you. For anyone new that's using this or other social media marketing software it's all about trial and error.

    TumblRipper - http://www.zark.be/software/TumblRipper.html

    I use this to scrape images for my account as it's easier and more effiecent to have thousands of images readily available to be posted.

    Goals

    It's important to have goals to stay on track. Here are some of my goals!

    Goodluck man! I've made it to around 3k followers at most. What's a time frame you're trying to hit 100k by?

    According to the calculations I've made I can do it in about a year although it really depends. I know I should be at least 30k within a year.

    Good luck! So are you using different accounts + proxies to spam your account or...? Good luck! I'm currently sitting at 4.4K and damn.

    Nope, just FollowLiker. I may use some different methods though soon as I have new ideas to get followers.

    First of all, good luck!

    I saw a thread the other day which recommended buying promotions from large accounts for a kickstart into Instagram, take that into consideration.

    Best,

    Good luck OP. Will definitely be following this as I'm on the same journey myself. Maybe we could compare notes sometime? Or hell, I might start my own journey thread as well - there's a lot to say(!)
