If you’re anything like me, you use Instagram for bullet journal inspiration all the time! There are just so many talented people on IG
This quick guide breaks down the basics of Instagram trackers and I’ve picked out some super cute examples to get inspiration from
(if you want just the examples, go to #2 and below)
Instagram Tracker Setup
Now I’m not going to bore you with a long explanation or insult your intelligence lol…
In the most basic sense, Instagram trackers are just a super easy way to get a birds-eye view of how your account is doing. Not to mention it’s super satisfying
In my mind, there are a few ways of tracking your IG account
Follower Count Tracking
I personally think this is the more popular way of tracking your progress on Instagram but I could be wrong
These spreads can be set up in a couple of different ways but the overall goal is to keep track of specific milestones you set for yourself in terms of how many followers you have
You can track it in three main ways:
- Track the date of each milestone hit
- Track number of followers per day / week
- Color in an icon when the milestone is hit
Or a combination of the different ways
Post Schedule Tracking
Another way of tracking the progess of your Instagram account is to set up a schedule for your posts
This is another great way of tracking things and just as satisfying. It’s pretty straight forward and doesn’t need much explaining
If you really want to go all out, you could combine the two different methods and get a complete look at your Instagram strategy
It’s really up to you on how you want to set things up and what works for you
That’s why I tried to pick a good variety of trackers…
Here are some Instagram trackers I love
Instagram Growth Tracker

If you’re looking for a minimalist tracker with a little flair, this is the one for you!
I love how she keeps everything very simple while still adding some drop shadows to give it that pop. If you’ve seen any of my pins, you know I love drop shadows

Does anyone out there have an Instax Mini?
I personally love mine and the pictures couldn’t come out any cuter. The retro vibe it captures is something you just can’t recreate with your iPhone
This tracker is the perfect mix of old school and new school to see your progress on Instagram! 📷
IG Schedule With Doodles

I think anyone can appreciate how awesome this IG tracker is… especially if you aren’t great at drawing like myself lol
Instead of tracking her follower count, I love how she’s using this to schedule her posts and stories! If you were to combine this style with the follower count style, you would have the ultimate Instagram tracker 🤔

Are you more of an analytical type of person and love data?
If so, you’ll love this graph tracker. Instead of just tracking the date of when you hit a certain milestone or follower count, this one allows you to see your growth over time
I love this one since it gives you a very clear idea of what is going on day to day. You could take it one step further and if your followers increase more than normal on a certain day, you could figure out what happened and do more of that!
Did your pic get shared on a large IG page? Or maybe shared to a big Pinterest account? 📌

I love how clean but still abstract this tracker is!
This is a great spread if you’re looking for something a little more “complex” than a super minimalist one but still aren’t that great at drawing bullet journal doodles yet… I’m pointing at myself here 👈

This tracker is the aftermath of the Instax Mini spread from above lol
I love how it’s simple but still looks good. If you’re a beginner and this is your first Instagram tracker then this one might be the one for you

Instagram Tracker With Stars

This one stands out so much to me!
Not only is the actual spread layout completely different than what I’m used to seeing but the galaxy doodle, for a lack of better words, makes this one so unique
Skyrocket your growth and track it along the way ⭐
Color In Tracker

This tracker spread looks so satisfying and I’m sure it’s even more satisfying to hit a milestone, then color in those adorable icons
If you’re going with a cactus or succulent theme for some of your spring month spreads… this one is going to be super inspirational

The hexagons I can do… now it’s a different story for those insane flowers she drew
Like the previous tracker, I love how satisfying it looks especially with the gradient she uses to color it in. I’m a little jelly… tracking to over 50k followers would be pretty fun!
Color in the path to your Instagram goals!
Coffee Insta Tracker

Who doesn’t love caffeine and bullet journals?! In my mind, I think the two go hand in hand
I love how she keeps the icons pretty small… small enough that I might even try this one out. If they don’t turn out how I’d like, I’ll get take off my glasses when on my tracker 😉
Add an extra espresso shot to your IG tracker with this one!

Gosh, this spread is super cute! I’m sure once she completely fills it in, it’s going to look even better
I love how she has very clear milestones to track for every 500 followers. With the way she can draw, she’ll have her spread completed and starting a new one in no time

Love the hexagon look from above but, just like me, don’t have the drawing skills yet? Perfect
This spread is super simple and takes very little time to get set up. Whether you’re a beginner or a season bujo pro, this would look good in anyone’s bullet journal

I know, I know… another hexagon IG tracker. I just think they look so good!
The 3D look is amazing and she keeps it super clean overall. Even without the galaxy doodles on the sides, this IG tracker would still look awesome

Sticking with the spring plants and succulent theme, I had to add this one to the list
I love the style she draws in and she carries it throughout all of her spreads. I definitely recommend checking out more than just this tracker. She’s super talented!
Make sure to water your “plants”

I really like the overall minimalist theme on this tracker while still adding some decoration with the black and gold
This IG tracker is pretty similar to the first one but I had to include it since it’s even easier without any icons

Windows Instagram Tracker

Does anyone else get the feelz when they see this spread?!
I love the throwback theme to windows and the days of super slow internet lol. It’s even funnier that Instagram wasn’t even around back then… gosh I feel old now
This tracker is a schedule of all the posts she wants to create and I just love the theme
Fire up paint and get to tracking your IG

I can’t get over how cute this tracker is!
I love the message / theme of collecting acorns and growing your Instagram account. She does an amazing job drawing it out and even better at coloring it in to bring the spread to life
Act like a squirrel and stack those acorns 🐿️
