    Hey guys,

    So title pretty much explains the idea of the post. I'm going to list some stats along the lines of Instagram statistics (so not FL), and I'll be using Iconosquare because it's pretty awesome. Anyways, my first goal is to reach 1k likes per pic on average, that way I know my followers are engaging with my content. The plan is to do what everyone else is doing, sell shout outs. I also have some other shit in mind as far as building a blog related to my niche and drive traffic from IG to the blog, however... I want to invest a good amount of money into that so it will become my main source of income, so thus, I want to get my money from selling shout outs in order to take the leap to SEO and all that other mumbo jumbo bullshit. Enough rambling.

    So from Apr 6 - May 6 here are my stats:

    Content
    • Pics posted: 18 (I know this is incredibly low but I also started school, so I wanted to make sure I knew my schedule before I opted anymore of my time in to this already full-time job)
    Engagement
    • 6,034 Likes (in total)
    • Average of 335 Likes per picture
    • Comments: 257 (in total)
    • Average of 14 Comments per picture (I feel like this fucking sucks)
    Growth
    • Followers: +2251
    • Gain and Loss: +2362 / -115

    EDIT: These stats are in relation to my current follower base which is 3,538.

    So not much, but I feel like everything is pretty decent (outside of the comments), considering this is my first run at all of this and things look good. I don't feel like my niche is too saturated, but idc anyways because it's something I enjoy doing and supporting. Anyways, what do y'all think about these stats so far? These are all stats based on Iconosquare but I used FL to get these stats.

    Questions are welcomed, any input is definitely welcome.

    Thanks for the heads up... I avg about 800 follows a day and about 650 unfollows. About 900 Likes and 250 comments...

    Should I change that up a bit? I usually stop the bot every now and then, make it seem more real.

    follow: 17-23
    unfollow: 5-10 (after 3 days)
    likes: 15-20
    comment: 25-35

    I change these on a daily basis, some days are faster and some days are slower. But I stay in those ranges, +10 / -10

    After trying 800 follows day I got a temp follow ban... my account is aged about 11 months. FL is counting follows even when they are not going all the way through, is this happening for you as well?

    I don't think so, maybe that's what IG caught on to from your FL messing up.

    How do you go about figuring out if it's not following all the way through?

    My account is only about 1.5 months old

    You go to activity log and check your phone if your actually following them. Aha
