    So im starting a journey i guess, Didnt know where to post this so i just posted it here. I currently have 210 followers and am in a professional tennis highlight niche (similar to the basketball highlights) i started 2 days ago. Im following around 150 people a day and unfollowing every 2 days. Im scraping users off of accounts in my similar niche, however it doesnt look like there is any huge competition out there though. Ill keep you guys updated! also let me know if i should be doing anything differently that would speed up the process :) I was thinking about using bots but i figured that it would be safer just to use crowdfire.

    Im also looking to mention my father's business in the bio to bring in more customers to us or more traffic to his website.

    You seem to have a pretty unique niche , good luck and don't give up! I would scale up and once you get bigger you could definitely mention your father's company!

    UPDATE: 10/19/15 9:13 AM 500 followers +290

    As of now in about 1 day I hit 500 followers with following about 1096 (as of now). A pattern I'm starting to notice is I receive the most likes and followers overnight, which could mean some of my followers are in a different time zone than me. I'm going to start the unfollowing process today and tell you guys how that goes tomorrow. I'm not using any bots just Crowdfire to follow and unfollow, so I don't risk getting banned.

    This is going to be pretty hard to shake off these people im following since I guess Instagram Has a new Limit for how many you can unfollow per hr.

    UPDATE: 10/20 9:18 AM 640 followers +140

    Done unfollowing just started following an hr ago. Engagement seems to be getting much better with my most commented pick being around 10 comments. Likes take a while but all pictures that have been up for 24 hrs have reach 40 likes or more, with most being 106 likes. I'm starting to take content off youtube so it looks more original, instead of taking content off other profiles. So far so good almost 1/10th of the way there!
