Help with getting more followers on new fitness account

3 replies
Hey guys! I run a 108k comic/ self help tips IG page and have started a new page just for fitness.

I shouted out my new page a few times over the last few weeks and got about 150 followers. Now, I am thinking about going into paid shoutouts next but seeing as I have so few followers I feel like it lacks social proof. I am trying to create everything myself and not use memes/ viral content but I may have to change that focus.

The way I got my other page to 100k was by doing a few tricks and spending a lot of money as I went.
-I bought 2000 fake likes for social proof (ended up screwing my engagement for a long time but did the job)
- I used a auto like/ follower that helped me get to my first 10k followers
-I bought lots of shoutouts that didn't really do much, until one day a influencer contacted me and we arranged a deal. He would help boost my posts with five of his accounts and send me viral pics. I paid him for every 10k followers I hit. This was when I first started understanding the value of going viral. So, once I hit 30k, i went off on my own and found that I didn't really need a boost from him. I could find my own pics and hit hashtags etc.

Now: The problem is that the account is 90% comic book fans and 10% people that like the tips. It just doesn't work the way I wanted.
So, I am trying a fitness account. The problem is I don't know whether I should keep everything original or throw in viral pics to get more followers.

Atm I am just liking and commenting on random posts in the fitness niche to gain followers but it's very slow. I have a shoutout planned for next week but I have a feeling that shoutouts will be a very slow process without going viral on posts.

Do you guys have any ideas? I am going to try get some good shots and videos over xmas of me training etc. But, I don't think they will go viral as I'm not roided out like phil health and Calum Von Moger etc.

Apologize if this sounds like a rant lol

    Have you ever tried to hire an specialist to do this tough job for you? your target will not only take weeks or months even years because it will need a preparation, studies, analysis, strategy and implementation.

    As mentioned above, it is much harder to bot ig now, I used to follow/unfollow 700 people a day, now I try not to go over 400 follows a day.
    You need likes so you could try to post viral content and maybe add some fake likes.
