    I've been a lurker on these forums for a few years and decided to come out of the woodwork for some more motivation on my part and hopefully to one day look back and see how far I've come. Hopefully you can follow my journey and give some tips if you think they can help, and hopefully I one day can be someone's inspiration to show that you can make progress with IM.

    I decided to focus on Instagram because there isn't much overhead as I am pretty broke. I'm growing this account because I hear that a lot of money is in the shoutouts and plan to work up to that.

    First Entry: April 8th

    I made an Instagram account and chose my niche. Uploaded 10 pictures with popular hashtags in my niche. I know it's populated but I hope with some persistence it can work for me. (Fitness Quotes and Motivation)

    Second Entry: April 9th

    I am using the 3 day trial for instagress, and I like it. I'd prefer to use FollowLiker but can't afford it. The progress is slow but I've got 60 followers and I'm following about 430. I'll unfollow the ones that don't follow back in a week. I'm getting about 30 likes per picture but I'm assuming that's mostly the hashtag working out for me. I feel like if I slowly grow, then unfollow the not following that over a long time I can create an interactive account with my followers.

    Third Entry: April 10th

    Still letting Instagress do all the heavy lifting. I am now at 120 followers and 847 following. Does anyone have suggestions as to going about unfollowing people who don't follow me? I know if it is done quickly it will raise a bunch of red flags which obviously I don't want. Thoughts?

    My free trial for instagress will end tonight so I need a new option. Suggestions as to which program is welcome!


    Stay tuned! (Suggestions Welcome!)

    Are you planning to buy fake followers/like or is it all organic?

    Can't buy fake followers. It wouldn't help grow the account. Or am I wrong? But buying likes is a possibility. I just don't know from where

    some say buying fake followers/likes will make the account seem more worthily to follow or buy shoutout from.

    I am not sure about it tho Organic might be the best way

    Thank you sir! Yes I imagine it will take time, but it will be worth it in the long run I hope!

    I have been doing that! I feel like I'm stealing their ideas though! haha
