    Hi everyone,

    Ive been reading as much as i could on this forums as well as others and i decided to start an instagram page.

    I know about the the various bots and decided to use instagress to follow, like and comment.

    My niche is travel and nature, i post quality content about 3 times per day and will get pretty good engagement from my followers.

    This is my third week into this but i seem to be stuck at 276 followers. the goal was to get at least 1000 followers by the end of the month but i cant seem to gain enough followers fast enough.

    If anyone is willing to help me out and point me in the right direction it would be very much appreciated! Feel free to PM me anytime

    Thanks in advance!

    The start is always difficult..What i would suggest you to do is buy some fake followers(generally not a good idea but at the start it's necessary) to make your account seem more legit/goodlooking..Aim for like 5k fake followers and from then on just grow naturally

    do not buy 5k fake followers, if you wanna add fake followers stay at 1k. If they drop it will look really ridiculous when your followers drop that much.

    3 weeks and only 276 followers is pretty bad. Review your settings.

    What are your setting for following? And sources?

    I'm a N00B in IG, and all my accounts made more than that in my first week (with pretty safe settings). I also have one in the travel niche, for a ver specific niche. It's the one that gain followers at the slowest rate of all my accounts, but not that bad.

    few days back, in Instagram's case, I realized that the more you follow the more you will get follow back. you will have to engage with your accounts try it I got more than 300 followers in a day by simply following others. Good luck

    my settings are pretty straight forward. the follow, comment and like setting is on "normal"

    I increased the number of hashtags that it searches through and i allowed it to like and comment on videos as well.

    In terms of settings thats about it.

    276 in 3 weeks is what you would get simply by posting 3 times a day and liking some others' photos. what do you use instagress for? do you use tags?
