I kept track of my followers on Web of Secrets for the first month or so until it hit Trending. It's been a while, but I think I was trying to determine which days/times were most successful. Hope this helps! (And sorry if my math is wrong somewhere—I never planned for anyone else to see this. :P)

Chapter 1: 2 followers (Posted Monday, 1/4. 2pm)
Map and Characters: 8 followers (+6) (Posted Monday, 1/4. 6pm)
Chapter 2: 15 followers (+7) (Posted Friday, 1/8, 7pm)
Chapter 3: 19 followers (+4) (Posted Sunday, Jan 10, 1pm)
Chapter 4: 21 followers (+2) (Posted Wednesday, Jan 13, 6:36pm) 
Reddit Post (r/ProgressionFantasy): 50 followers (+29)  (Posted Thursday, Jan 14, 2pm)
Reddit Post (r/rlitRPG): 64 followers (+14)  (Posted Friday, Jan 15, 1:30pm)
Chapter 5: 77 followers (+13) (Posted Sunday, Jan 17, 11:16am)
Chapter 6: 78 followers (+1) (Posted Thursday, Jan 21, 1:03pm)
Chapter 7: 83 followers (+5) (Posted Saturday, Jan 23, 9:32am)
Chapter 8: 91 followers (+8) (Posted Tuesday, Jan 27, 9:06pm)
Chapter 9: 99 followers (+8) (Posted Friday, Jan 29, 9:16pm)
Chapter 9: 174 followers (+75) (Posted Wednesday, Feb 3, 9:16pm) (Trending Day 1)

TL;DR: Around ten on the story's first day.

One-digit. But it depends how big of a timespan you're talking about. If Chapter 2 is not going to be posted for a full week, many of your current readers will find the story in the meantime (especially if you link to it from your other fictions), I'd expect you to get two-digit or even low three-digit with just one chapter. 

But if you post chapter 2 the next day, the numbers will be lower of course. That's my guess, at least!
