    So after reading a huge amount of the forum over here and the success that people had received, I found the motivation to start an Instagram account at the end of last week. I am creating this thread to provide others with motivation and myself with motivation, my goal is to get to 100K by July the 1st. I might be a bit unfrequent in my posts but hopefully one a day. I am hoping to grow the account as naturally as I can except for using Instagress to unfollow people during the night. Please share any info you have that would help, this would be awesome!!! So, onto the stats

    If I were you I'd use Instagress to follow instead of unfollowing. The latter can easily be done using Crowdfire on your phone.

    create good content and hopefully the people liking it will tag their friends. those friends hopefully will follow. Be engaging, dont just follow and un follow. thats a crap way to build a strong account.

    That's pretty good but I have done about 2000 manually in a normal day.

    25 hours yesterday? How were you able to do that in one day which only has 24 hours? Kidding!

    Good luck with your journey! Keep the updates! :)

    Pleased with today's increase in engagement more posts going above 300 likes now. Annoying that I didn't get above 2k today but that will come tomorrow.
    Cheers for tuning in

    All I am doing now is following the people that like pictures in my niche. Then unfollow a few days later. And I also like a few photos of any new followers. ��

    Followers: 2033 (+100) Yay got to the 2K this afternoon!!
    Avg likes: 270 (+16)


    Didn't do a lot today. Followed maybe 250 people. Was a busy day however I'm pleased I got over 2k and another awesome thing is that one of my photos was on most popular for hashtag which has 145million posts so that was cool! Also great that my engagement keeps on increasing as well!
