Instagram account growth

5 replies
I have a single account for men's fitness niche
I was able to grow from a few 1oo to 3.000:
- using original content
- posting daily (sometimes 3X a day)
- using hashtags (always 30)
- follow/unfollow/like (using instazood)

I was very discouraged by the slow growth and took a 3 month hiatus, now I want to go back to work

a - How do I bring it up to 10.000?
b - what ratio of F/U should I use?
c - what bot do you recommend to automate posts, likes, F/U
d - do I need a proxy/VPN
e - any tips or anything that I am missing?

Thank you for your help.

    If you have any other forms of social media make sure you promote your hashtag through those vehicles. Website, YouTube Channel, Facebook and email blasts.

    Hey Hermogenes,

    Are you curating content at all? I'd recommend looking into using Engagement Groups and collaborating with other people in your niche.

    Men's fitness niche - you can mix up your content between workout clips (curated by other athletes or celebrities), photos of other fitness influencers, short-form educational videos, memes, etc. Not sure if you already have a pre-established niche but if you don't definitely pick one.

    Hashtags - make sure to rotate your hashtag sets and there has been speculation that the 30 hashtags doesn't work as well as it used to. I've seen people use anywhere between 5 to 20 now. A/B test and see how many people you're reaching from hashtags and if you're ranking in the top hashtag posts.

    I mostly have dealt with White Hat Instagram, so can't say much on the F/UF, Automation Methods, Etc.

    P.S. If it's more of a personal brand fitness page, it is a bit different - most fitness influencers follow an aesthetic like @stevecook @christianguzmanfitness etc but you can still curate & repost other content as long as it's done in good taste and you're crediting the original source.

    Hey there bro! bringing it up to 10,000 is easy but you need to stop the follow and unfollow thing.

    You need to establish yourself as a fitness brand or figure and you need to post consistently, network with other big influencers or pay them some money to engage with your posts.

    When the big fitness influencers account engage with your post, most of their followers will see your post in their feed so if your content is good, you might gain a lot of followers just from that, that is how instagram algorithm works.

    They are called powerlikes and you can get them anywhere on telegram and on google now but high quality powerlikes are very hard to get but most of them get the job done if you want to grow your followers fast. The price should range between $150 to $300 per month.

    If you do not have the budget, just use hashtags properly 20-25 hashtags related to fitness niche and do not aim for the big hashtags, go for smaller one, which you would likely rank in the top 5 hashtags posts. (10k to 100k posts)

    If you follow this method, you will most likely get a lot of followers in the next couple of months. And most importantly stay consistent and do not give up
