    I have had lots of business failures and the main culprit was building a product before building an audience. So learned from my mistakes, and the main priority is to build an audience.

    1st Account: Fashion Niche
    1.5 months ago and built it up to 4.1k.
    I remember when I first started this, I got 70 of likes right away on first post. (Didn't even start follow method yet)
    No organic followers from my posts now
    99% of follows come from my follow/unfollow manually

    2nd Hot Fit Girls Account Niche
    Started it less than a week ago.
    Same tactics as fashion niche.
    Some organically follow based on new posts.
    Not getting likes when I started my fashion account. Posts got like 3-15 likes. ??

    3rd Luxury Travel Account Niche
    Started this and kind of abandoned due to lack of engagement
    Failed so miserably
    Same tactics as fashion niche, but no engagement
    Almost nobody follows back
    2-5 likes per post.


    Really don't want to use bots because I'm sure it will get my account deleted and that I worked so hard on.

    1) How do you guys build yours?
    2) Why is my fashion account responding so well relative to other accounts and my others are god awful?

    1. MF/ML
    2. It is necessary to imagine that the main part of the audience on Instagram is girls and it is not surprising that they respond better at fashion

    What is MF/ML? My fashion account is for men actually... How do you know that instagram is audience is composed more of women than men?

    EDIT: I am checking that people build a following of 1k in like 4 days. Wutt? How do you not get banned.

    4.5k followers in 1.5months is very good. How much engagement you got?

    500 likes per post, but what I realized is that if I don't make new posts, new followers will like the first few pictures increasing engagement. If I post too much, there isn't much time for people to like it because it gets pushed down.

    Oh, alright I tried doing a women's fashion also before, but it was getting like 2 likes per post. I used the exact same tactics as my men's fashion one. If demographic is higher in women why doesn't it work? I didn't see any big accounts that focused on women's fashion, they were all women's fitness

    Also, since I am doing unfollow and follow method. Once I do mass unfollow. How do I prevent myself from following the same people? I can see that my audience likes all the similar niches, so the probability of me following them again is high.

    I don't want them to be like: "Hey you didn't this guy follow me before, if he is following me again, that means he unfollowed me, so I am going to unfollo him"
