    Hi guys,

    Here's yet another individual going on an Instagram journey. The reason for my journey is not to make money off Instagram like many of the others, but to grow visits to my site. By providing previews on Instagram and adding an URL to my page, I hope to achieve this effect.

    Bit of info before I tell you details of current set up: I had an account banned today, this was the main (and only, stupidly enough) account I was using to generate traffic. I managed to get ~450 followers with 2K following while having only 3 posts. Not really depressed that I have been banned, but the username I used was a good one. RIP.

    Current set up:
    3 IG accounts, each starting with 0 followers and 0 following.
    Each account will be ran on a separate VPS.
    Each account will be used to ONLY follow-unfollow.
    1 picture / video a day will be posted on each account.

    I'll be initially starting with adding 1 post on each account, and following 200 people/day. Unfollowing will commence 1 week after starting this journey.

    Any tips and/or tricks will be more than appreciated. Please let me know.

    Day 1:
    Account 1 = 0 Followers - 0 Following
    Account 2 = 0 Followers - 0 Following
    Account 3 = 0 Followers - 0 Following

    Update

    Day 2:
    Account 1 = 48 Followers - 204 Following
    Account 2 = 37 Followers - 205 Following
    Account 3 = 31 Followers - 201 Following

    Side notes: All three accounts required phone verification yesterday. I did so with 3 different phone #'s to decrease the risk of having all the accounts banned.
    Today I'll put up a post on each account, then start following 200 more people.

    Update

    Day 3:
    Account 1 = 128 Followers - 412 Following
    Account 2 = 86 Followers - 411 Following
    Account 3 = 75 Followers - 370 Following

    Side notes: Nothing mention-able. Each account now has 2 posts. Thinking about creating some throwaway accounts which will be used solely to comment on competitor's posts. Not sure if I'll do it now or later when my main account has grown, thinking about the latter.

    Account 1: 760 followers, 2600 following
    Account 2: 450 folllowers, 2200 following
    Account 3: 250 followers, 2200 following

    Side notes: Been slacking due to another venture with an ex-partner, turned out his plan didn't work and I wasted some time. Will up the following with about 20-50 following a day (so instead of 200 following a day, it'll be 250, then 300 etc).
