    Here is my journey into Instagram Marketing! I'm a complete Newbie with Instagram and Marketing, so this will be interesting.

    I will be updating my progress weekely, and posting my new goals.
    The challenges I'll be facing is just pushing through obstacles, not giving up, and learning all this marketing stuff.

    My ultimate goal would be to have an "Instagram Empire" but here are some of my short term goals,

    - To Gain 10 followers per day
    - 5+ likes per picture

    For now it'll be all manual, but might use a bot if it helps.

    thanks for reading :)

    Feel free to leave any advice below.

    Oh, does anybody reccommend any eBooks to grow an account on instagram, and monetize it?

    yeah, the real challenge is sticking with it, learning marketing, and pushing it until I can replace my income on instagram alone. I'll put that up there.

    OP's goals are focused, and it sounds like to me he's really not doing this for money right away, but for self dedication and gratification for achieving a goal in a semi knowledgeable route to building an empire.

    Keep us posted skpolen, I'm interested on what you'll have to share in a few montrhs.

    Hey everyone, quick update.

    I'm currently at 32 followers & 7-9 likes a post (with hashtags) but i'm just completely stuck at 32 followers. I tried out the 3 day trial using instagress and filter the likes to certain hashtags, that didn't work so now i've filtered the likes to followers of IG names.

    For right now, instagress is f-ing slow and i'm looking into another bot.

    Also Instagram wont allow me to follow anymore people, any help with this?

    Thanks!

    I have a similar size account. I've got 33 followers and 171 following. I'm trying to not to follow many people at all.. Most of my follows(i know i dont have many) are coming from people seeing my images via hashtags. I get around 20-30 likes per picture right now.

    Honestly think you just have to take a deep look into hashtags at the start, I'm still fine tuning mine. Check this site out!

    I'm currently trying to avoid hashtags as much as possible to see what my follow to like ratio is. I've managed to get 97 followers & 4-15 likes per photo from just following people in my IG's niche. But for now i'm just testing & stuff. Might invest in follow liker, and create a few more accounts. I'm on the verge of purchasing an IG account to get the feels of an active IG.

    dont purchase accounts trust me it is too easy to get them back. use followliker and buy more accounts that would be a huge plus for you learning faster. if you need help or tips just pm me

    Thanks for the advice! I would ask you more questions but I can't PM until I've posted 15 times, so i'll ask here.
    How easy is it for people to get accounts back?
    Should I make more than 1 account right now or wait?

    Thanks bud!

    ahh i forgot about the beginning limits
    extremely easy just contact instagram and give them info about the account such as email, pass, facebook account if connected etc
    if you get followliker then i would most definately make more than one account. each account a different niche and build them up. the collective amount of follower gains will be a huge motivator to keep going; for example:
    account 1 gained 1000
    account 2 gained 500
    account 3 gained 250
    collectively that is 1750 followers instead of one account just gaining 1000

    no problem at all! just chillin has a follow liker guide read that along with the guide follow liker gives you. if you need any help just ask me i dont mind answering them. also to figure out how to get it on your chromebook just contact the support team if you cant download it regularly. just keep in mind unless you have a virtual private server you will have to keep your chromebook on the whole time the program is on
