Hello BHW members. I would like to start this topic with saying that I'm here on this forum for about 3-4 months, but haven't registered, so I decided it's time to register and learn more with You over here. Anyhow, I know that by making this topic will draw a lot of attention to my sign "newbie", but that's what it says, and I don't want to brag or something like that, but just want to say that I have kinda looked over Instagram related methods here on BHW and trying one of them as I am writing this. So basically, I started a week ago with fresh instagram account related to certain niche without investing any money (read: 0$) and because of that, I have chosen the method of Instagram Shoutout. This has kind of interested me on long run because money can't be made over night and you have to put a lot of effort and time in it, and in certain point, your money. So this account that I have started has around 500 followers and avg like of pictures is 230. I know every member that will read this will laugh out like he never had, but I have a question regarding my start off. As I am planning to do this at this point without bots, and only manually follow/unfollow, like and comment, is it good at theoretically 3k followers, time to use MP or any other bot that will enhance that production? I am not right now considering of using many accounts and doing OGADS or similar methods, but purely this one that I have chosen. So the question would be: What is the right time of using bots if it will be needed and at what time should I start to monetize this account in certain niche? Sorry for long thread, but I wanted to explain this let's say "journey" of mine from ground up and not to left something unsaid. Every comment is welcome, and thank you all in advance.
