    Hi there, I'm an italian newbie (so sorry for my not perfect english) that is going to have his first journey on Instagram!
    I just created and account in the luxury niche and I want to manually build it to see where it goes and try to earn some money (if it'll go well I'll invest in a good bot like FollowerLiker).
    I've read a lot of posts here on BHW, trying to understand how this "world" works but I'll need a lot of experience to be more confident so every kind of help will be appreciated!

    I created my account about 1 hour ago and I'm going to F4F people that likes post of big accounts in my niche (about 60 follow per hour) and post about 10 pics/day.
    I'm also using an iMacros script to like photos every 30/35 seconds and planning to begin use one for comments too, but I want to feel safe about it!

    Those are my current stats:
    Post: 3
    Followers: 9
    Following: 43

    Wish me good luck! :D

    Good luck, stay focused. One sale in luxury is worth 10 times the normal sales.

    Good luck. Go slow, especially at first. There's plenty of time to build up a following.

    It's been a day and a little more since my "adventure" has started!
    I'm going slow, using the bots less than I should and following back every people that is following me (I will unfollow all of them in some day). I'm following about 50 people/hour and I successfully asked to a 2kk followers luxury page to like some of my pics.
    I'm going to take your advice and post about 4 pics/day.

    Those are my new stats:
    Post: 10 (+7)
    Followers: 123 (+114)
    Following: 511 (+468)

    I don't know if I can consider this as a good first day but I will go on! :fingersx:

    I would suggest you to focus on following people that is not following you rather than following back, if they followed you by themselves its because they are interested in your profile and they like your posts.

    Good luck on your journey.

    Yup, I followed everyone on my first days but now I'm starting to follow only who doesn't follow me!
    I wanna ask you, when and how should I start to unfollow? And how can I avoid to re-follow people that I unfollowed?

    And puff! My account has been banned a few mins ago! I don't know why, I wasn't liking too many pics, I was using bots not so much and I wasn't following more than 50 people/hour.
    It is frustrating because I was behaving good and I was investing time in this account.
    Someone can explain me what the hell is happened?

    I would suggest to make a new account, post 10 pics and put the account in instagress and use their 3 days trial it will give you some good base followers over 500 in 3 days! Then just use crowdfireapp to follow i dont know what it is i do it manually and i always reach hourly limit as crowdfire shows that message but i never had trouble on my pva account which i a little older than 1 month my other account which is over 3 years old its not pva it sometimes gets captcha ... Also unfollow when you reach following limit good luck and try again
