    Welcome Fellow BHW Members!

    About Myself
    I am 17 years old and in my junior year of high school, I'
    m in the US and been in internet marketing for a little while. You may have seen me around BHW on other threads but this is my first journey. Like many others I have made this thread to keep myself motivated, and to share my experiences with others on this site. Hopefully it entertains a few of you here, and more importantly I hope this can motivate others to take action, get off their ass and work for what they want. I also hope this has a lot of useful information in it for others doing the same thing I am. Running my own business is a dream of mine, I have an entrepreneurial mindset and I am obsessed with money.. I can't go an hour during the day dreaming about it.. I sit in class and think about it all day. I can't work a 9-5 the rest of my life, this is the first step I am taking to reach the goal of financial stability for myself. I can't share some things from my past I have done, but this is a more legal and acceptable way of making money compared to other things I have been involved in. This is a stepping stone to other things I plan on doing in the future, sorry for the long introduction but I don't talk to many people in my real life about this stuff and wanted to give a little info about myself so you know who you are following :).Without further ado lets hop into what I plan on doing.

    My Plan Of Action

    Currently I have 4 good quality IG accounts running on followliker. Of the 4, 2 of them have 2k + followers, the third with just over 1k, and the 4th with a little over 150. I just bought 20 more IG accounts from my boy in a IG skype group I just joined. I'm going to be adding these accounts, warming them up and growing them further. As for monetizing goes I would prefer the slow dime over the fast nickle for these first accounts. This being said I am only going to be growing these accounts for now and when they reach around 5k each I will be monetizing through a drop shipping website I have almost fully developed. This plan may change along with many other things in this journey. More important than having a set plan of action, is actually taking ACTION and that is what I am doing here. I will be updating this thread daily. Any questions you have please feel free to ask and I will help to the best of my abilities!

    Day 1 Stats
    Account 1: Followers / 2202 Following / 7501
    Account 2: Followers / 1986 Following / 7545
    Account 3: Followers / 1282 Following / 2655
    Account 4: Followers / 171 Following / 644

    Day 1 Update
    Not much I know, but everyone starts somewhere. Tonight I will be working on this and will continue to update this thread at the end of every day. Tomorrow I hope to have 10 accounts optimized in total. I will be pva'ing these accounts if need be, changing username and password. Creating bio and profile pic, making it more "human". After this I will be warming those accounts up while optimizing the others if I have time to do so. Thank you all for reading and following my journey. Questions and responses are encouraged! Let's see where this goes!

    Thank you for the kind words, in regards to pv ing, I am using family members or friends numbers to verify them. This is only a temporary solution until I find a more reliable resource for this

    If you do find a reliable source that isn't physical sims I recommend that you keep it to yourself. Too many times has a good source been destroyed because someone spilled the beans.

    Not saying you cant share your experiences etc but there are some things that successful imers keep to themselves.

    Thank you social for the response, I plan on keeping some things to myself especially if it could jeopardize my own success.

    Instagram seems like the new goldmine in IM. Interested in this journey.

    It is not necessarily a gold mine, but it is definitely a place where money is to be made. Although it is fairly saturated, there are always new Instagram users everyday who can be marketed too.

    Day 2 Update
    Today I added 3 new accounts and had to PVA 2 of them. Currently I am in the learning and testing stage, although I already have a few decent sized accounts growing already. The testing is on fresh accounts, what exactly triggers PVA and how to get around it. I'm also trying to find the best settings for warming up these fresh accounts while avoiding bans, or PVA. I also started unfollowing on accounts 1 & 2 as the following got a bit too high. I am warming up accounts 4, 5, 6, and 7 at different settings to see what works best. Had some decent growth on a few of the accounts as well. Engagement on these new accounts is looking phenomenal. Tomorrow I plan on adding 5 more accounts and continue testing different settings and such. Taking this journey one day at a time, thank you all for reading! Questions and suggestions are more than welcome! :D
