    Hello guys, I'm posting this journey here as a source of motivation for me. So the end goal will be 1M+ instagram followers, as for monetization, that will come later as the most important thing is to get followers and build an asset. (For all I care I can sell the accounts).
    This will be completely whitehat, I will not use bots nor the follow for follow method. I will only post quality content and try to get high engagement rates to be featured in the explore page.I will probably use some engagement groups as well.
    To spice things up, this will be a challenge between me an @Dominor001 to see who reaches 1 million followers first.

    Update #1:

    Brainstormed the niches I'm going to be working with : funny, fitness and pets.
    Did some niche analysis: what I'm going to post, how to boost engagement, how I'll monetize each niche etc...
    Created 4 accounts with my phone : 2 about funny memes, one about fitness and one about pets.
    Downloaded a lot of HQ images from the internet.

    Tomorrow I will post the first pics of each account and follow the first 50 follows for each account.These first follows will only be made to get the first followers, after that, I will try to post quality pictures in the aim of appearing in the explore page of their followers.

    I will have approach this with a whitehat approach while he's doing more blackhat stuff. For example I'll post only HQ engaging pictures and I will target alot of hashtags.Later on I'll join some engagement groups.

    Good luck. Manual building rarely works and takes much time. Maybe there is a secret you are keeping towards building the account to 1m .

    Update #2:
    I made the bio profile pic etc.. for all 4 accounts and downloaded pictures for each acc and made a template for one of the "funny memes" accounts. I tried to follow 50 people for the pet acc to get the initial followers but got hit by phone verification. Luckily I could verify it ( I got scared first). I don't know if I need to let the accounts warm up or just go with the initial follows and phone verify whenever needed. Anyway, I uploaded one pic to the pet account just to test things and I got 8 followers, 2 of which I haven't followed. Take in consideration that in the pic description I wrote something like "tag your friends if you like this bla bla", but I realised that no one reads the pic description.So now I'll have to insert the engaging texts ("tag your friends",questions etc..) in the pictures with photoshop.

    If you're doing all this from your phone, why not use an app like word swag or pixlr to create your text overlays?
