    Hi everyone!:)

    This is my first thread here, I hope that I'm doing everything right.

    Yeah another IG journey...but I wanted to share this with you anyway. :D
    I'm a newbie (I started with instagram less than 2 months ago) and I'll need some help. :oops: I read a lot of journeys here and all of them motivated me to try it myself.

    I have 2 accounts with 4k and 5,4k respectively in the fitness and weed niche. For the weed one I'm using Instagress for following/unfollowing/liking while I do all manually with fitness one (engagement groups). For monetizing I really have no idea yet, maybe I'll sell shoutouts in the future (maybe affiliate marketing would be a good choice for the weed account). So for now I'll be focusing on growing the followers.

    PS - English is not my mother tongue, please excuse any errors on my part :oops:

    That would take months. I wouldn't recommend it. Your best bet is creating a trending meme page. Like "Kermit" and pay a bigger IG page to share your post and pay for shoutouts. I personally wouldn't pay more than $25 look for accounts that have 300k+ followers IG is hard to monetize so they won't mind getting $25 for just a shoutout.

    Best of luck for your journey, I will watch this thread, because I also started a new Instagram project, if you need tips or want to exchange ideas just write me a message. :)

    I would recommend buying FL or MP, when you want to do the instagram thing longer than 2-3 months. For 1 account you pay 9.99 for 1 month on instagress, you get the same with MP and more accounts and also for just 10$ more you get a lot of more great features! Sorry I am currently in love with MP haha :)

    I used instagress back in the days and was able to grow an account to 20k without any shoutouts, but yes It takes a huge amount of time. I never did shoutout and idk if this is a very effective method?!

    I mean 50K with both accounts together. Maybe I'll add another account. So I'm at almost 10k followers right now.
    40k to go and I hope that it won't take more than 2 months!

    Thanks guys!
    Yes I was thinking about getting FL. What are the feautures you are talking about MP? Thanks in advance :)
    I never paid for shoutouts and I don't know if they are effective or not..

    Good luck in your journey. I just started an IG journey a month ago from the very beginning. I'm currently running 15 accounts with a total of close to 6k followers. I've got a weed account with 1,300 followers which is getting ~250 likes per post. How's your engagement going?

    If you want to chat, PM me your skype.

    They have a separate IG module. Mainly I use it for scheduling my posts. So every month I add like ~90 pictures and it runs a whole month on autopilot. Perhaps I look at the settings and stuff.

    But I guess if you want to post manually then FL is the better alternative, because it is cheaper in the long run.

    I guess I will try shoutouts, when my page hits like 10k

    That's an amazing engagement. I'm getting like 200+ likes per pic but without doing likes round on engagement groups or anything.

    Little Update: The fitness account only gained 145 followers because the bot in engagement group didn't work properly :oops:

    Account 1: 5,797 (+237)

    Account 2: 4,313 (+145)


    Total Followers = 10,110 (+382)
