    Hello,

    i've been working for a week now on my new profile. I've got currently 2363 followers. I've bought two shoutouts and also did liking photos on the same niche at the start, manually of course.

    My profile is pretty active, i get more than 200 likes on each photo i post and over 20 comments with mostly tags, which is perfect i think. I post 3 images per day.

    Now my question is when or how long will it take so i "enter" the snowball effect, since my engagement is high? I am currently getting like 5 max 10 new followers per day but also few unfollowers (like 2-3 which is normal).

    What should i do now just post and wait the effect or?

    Thanks

    if you get 5-10 unfollows per day you should reconsider your posting strategy / check the quality of your posts.

    You already entered the "snowball effect" with those 5+ new followers you get daily if they are organic

    Don't worry about the snowball effect too much, it will surely come.

    For now just focus on posting regular, quality and engaging content.

    The snowball effect works differently for everyone, so there is not a perfect answer to this.

    "Metaphorically, a snowball effect is a process that starts from an initial state of small significance and builds upon itself, becoming larger (graver, more serious), and also perhaps potentially dangerous or disastrous (a vicious circle, a "spiral of decline"), though it might be beneficial instead (a virtuous circle)"

    That definition is a bit cloudy.

    In my experience the organic growth skyrockets once you appear on the list when people search for your niche, the more popular niche the stronger the effect is.

    I notice the organic growth getting alot bigger after the 10K mark when the "word" spreads if you have your own hashtag.

    So without any commenting, liking, following etc, you're only getting 5-10 new followers per day?

    One of my new account I didn't bot for a few days (due to temp ban) and was getting 20-50 followers and it had 1200+ followers.

    Your result was not good. Today I do follow manually and I got 1000+ followers within a day.

    I don't do manual following unless im trying to scrape content ideas. What I do is simply post content that I know gets engagements to lure followers in. If they are spamming my profiles I use some of my "engagement boosters" to throw likes, comments, and some site clicks their way. The trick is to get other black hats to help grow your channel as well.

    Sorry if my answer won't satisfy your question...
    but a profile starts growing when you deserve it.

    I don't comment anywhere i just like photos (manually) of users i find on same niche profiles.

    That's amazing, but how? Do you use hashtags or is your niche unique?
