Hello,

5 days ago I started uploading on instagram, as this was my personal acc which I never used.. so it is quite old.
I do not have any previus experience with this.

I will only upload my own art on my account.
Until now, I posted 4 artworks which got more than 200 likes. Engagement around 100%.

I'm looking forward to continuously grow this account, posting every 2 days new artwork.
The first days I used to do the 1-2 punch method. Following about 200 People and right now I have 70 followers.
I do not want to spend much time doing the methods instead letting somebody else doing these methods for money or automating this stuff.



Would it be safe if I write a script which automates my browser? How are the usual bot's designed which were tracked by instagram?

Keeping you guys updated.

I wouldn't go with automation at this moment. Just keep doing 1-2 punch manually 'till you've time.
Your engagement by now seems really good! Did you use popular hashtags or you looked for more unused ones?

In the beginning I used to have more popular hashtags.
While reading the book I noticed it would be better that I use more unusual ones because of my account size.
In my recent post's I used the unusual one's with 1k-80k follower, but most of them 1k-20k.. So my post's are still there even after one day. This way I'm getting like's without my own engagement.
Actually I do not like to invest much time in the 1-2 punch method. I would like to automate that stuff.

My engagement rate right now is about 80%, I have about 170 followers at this moment and one of my post's got even over 200 likes.
I kept continuously posting every 2 days until now.

It is going pretty good.
I got 220 follower and average engagement rate is 67%.
Average Interactions per post 117 likes, 8 comments.
9 post's right now.

I'm growing slow because I don't do that much 1-2 punches. Just 700 in total.
That's why I buyed the ascend viral service. It will probably start in a few days.
I have picked my hashtags and target followers wisely.

Looking forward to hit 1-2k in february!

My Account got many likes from acc's with 5k-30k followers in my niche.
I hope that I will land on the feed from their followers as described in the ebook.

I reached out to a few people in my niche and 2 of them accepted to post my artwork from their content.
One of them got 33k subs and 2-7k likes on each post.
We are selling the print with 50/50. Let's see where it goes.

Should I set my profile to private while they shoutout for me?

Hey there,

a little update of my side.
Today I received the message that my growth manager will start to warm up my account.

As I said in my previous post, 2 people posted my art on their site and I gained about 50 followers.
The artwork got about 1.3k likes.

Right now my follower count is 280 followers.
I just did a hundred 1-2 punch methods the last couple of days.

I kept continuously posting and my artwork 2 days ago got almost 300 likes. yey
My engagement is still 60-70%.

Right now I am aiming to hit 2k in February and getting some top post's along the way.
