    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. :)

    shouts are one of the least efficient ways to make money with insta. its like placing your faith in somone else to make money on your account isntead of you. explore more options!

    You must upload consistent content if you want to boost your account faster.

    Shoutouts will cost you a lot of $$$ to build it to a sufficient page. There are a few different methods to grow it.

    Well, yes they could be the least efficient way to make money, but somebody else is using it and makes pretty good money out of it, and I've said I'm going with this one on long run. If at any point I see that's not working, I will try some other ways to make it.

    Yes, I am uploading fresh content everyday, but I don't want to mess up everything with overwhelming content because it's still a fresh account and could draw attention to instagram.

    I am building my account without buying shoutouts from anyone, and if and when my account grows to a certain point of followers (10k-50k) with good engagement rate, I will try to sell shoutouts or at first, give some shoutouts for free to advertise my account

    Yep basically use a generic well known niche that gets followers like the latest football goals or fashion or celeb gossip etc thats the guaranteed way to get your insta account blowing up quicker or atleast steadily growing if you want to do it the legit way.

    dont start with shout outs, people wont follow accounts that dont have many followers so yyour money will be wasted.

    In my opinion, you have to running your accounts using massplanner in the first time. Because the hardest part when you build your accounts is when you do a first start with 0 followers. You should upload consistent pictures everyday at the right time to really build your engagement in the long run.

    You can try to post 4 pictures a day, and when you think it's enough or already well build. You can try to post 3 times a day.

    I haven't started like that. My plan is to get real followers on a long run. My account is almost 2 weeks old and right now im on 1k followers, and my pictures get an average of 350/400 likes and 10/15 comments, so I think it's a pretty solid start for new account.

    That's the thing. I don't want to use any bot. I know it speeds up the process, but when I do follow/unfollow method, I am targeting specific people that will follow me back and like my content that I am updating couple of times a day. On 100 followings, I get around 35-40 followbacks, which is pretty good in my opinion without using any bot.

    What's the reason you don't want to use bot?
