Alright, so for the past few weeks I've been on the hunt for the best setup.
The best proxies. The best automation software. The best accounts.

GOAL - Create 250 accounts for child / fan page method.

Why do I need the best?
Everything seems to have gotten a lot stricter with instagram's new updates.
I would prefer to have reliable accounts & just pay a bit more.
Plus it seems like the only option right now, or else BAN
(conclusion through hours of research & tests below)​


Proxies
I started with the "Iron" proxies from v6proxies.com - this got almost all of my accounts banned before I even tried to do a single action on any of them. This was for both aged & fresh accounts. The only thing I did was update the bio, username, & profile pic

Next I tried the residential proxies from BuyPersonalProxy.com - these proxies again; got about half of the accounts banned.

I also tried BlazingSEO Dedicated proxies.... almost all of these accounts got banned the 1st day.

-keep in mind, no follow, unfollow, like, or any of those actions were done in any of these accounts.

SOFTWARE
After a lot of research I've decided to use Jarvee, it seems to have amazing options for botting. However, it's account creation tool is absolutely terrible (explain more below)​

Accounts
The first thing I tried was buying aged accounts from Valar - in the past few days all of these accounts have been banned before and actions had taken place. No matter which proxy they were on.

The second thing I tried was aged accounts from AccsMarket - Again; all accounts have been banned as above.

Conclusion - Aged accounts have been sitting for years, so when you start them up again it triggers a flag... regardless of age. Also, you're switching proxies from the sellers, to yours. This is another flag. Lastly, the accounts are almost always using shady mail.ru emails which is another strike. You know what they say... 3 strikes & you're out.


So what now?
Right now I've decided to create my own accounts using yahoo emails & residential proxies.



I have about 100 accounts in Jarvee

- I've created about 100 accounts in Jarvee (creation failure rate is about 80% and information gets lost, so I'm forced to manually go into every account to make sure everything is there. This is an extreme waste of time & will probably cause me to switch to IGramTool very soon for account creation.

All my accounts have been created using @Valar Instagramis Scorpion proxy which has been great for account creation, but unsustainable for account management/botting.


SO MY BIG QUESTION IS..... What do I do now? I have about 100 accounts. They are finally not getting immediate bans such as in the previous experiences I mentioned above.

- The next step is to put the accounts on proxies where I can start following, unfollowing accounts, & posting a few pictures.

- I'm worried that once I change proxies they will lead to bans

- I've heard great things about 3G, 4G, & LTE Mobile proxies!!! However, I haven't tried these yet, so I would love to have some input in this.


3G, 4G & LTE Mobile Proxies - According to research, these seem to be the best & most reliable right now. Does anyone have any experience using these proxies?

My main questions for these are...
  • Does anyone here have experience using these types of proxies?
  • How many accounts are you running on them? (I've heard people say 10-30)
  • Which provider are you using?
  • What type/amount of actions have you been able to do with these proxies?
  • For those using residential proxies... how much are you spending on bandwidth?

Thank you,
AdventureMan

Something doesn't seem right.

You shouldn't be getting banned immediately after before doing any actions. Even with shitty proxies / accounts (for the most part).

You must be leaving some kind of other trail that is getting you flagged immediately.

From what I've been told, it's because of posting a picture. I've been hearing people say that it's hard to post without bans these days, but that also relating to scraped content. All my content is original, so I'm not sure if that applies to me....

@blackgold Hey! Thanks for the response.
1. Yes I uploaded 1-2 pictures after connecting the fresh and aged accounts.
2. No, I haven't looked into changing the MD5 hash of the pictures since they are all original photos taken by myself. I'll look into this now if that's something that I should be doing
3. Warmup? I haven't followed, liked, or commented on a single one of these accounts yet :)

Please clarify what do you mean by unsustainable for account management.

Since the scorpion proxies are residential they are priced off of bandwidth, just like most other residential services out there. This means you pay per GB instead of paying per proxy. The amount of proxies you can create is unlimited, but the amount of bandwidth isn't.

The cost is $10 per GB. When you're running 200 account on Jarvee, you're going to burn up through $500-600 per month minimum... maybe even more.
So by saying it's "unsustainable" I mean that the cost you'll be paying per account just to have it run is more than it's worth

Where does this numbers come from?
You are supposed to run several accounts on a 1 Gb bandwidth residential proxy at the same time.

@Lilith55 It comes from a few days of research. Numbers aren't accurate, but it's extremely expensive without a doubt.

@wrathofend They've been treating me great so far! I've only created account so far though, haven't started actions yet....

Im currently testing my own ipv6 proxy server for managment and residential proxies for posting and creation. I do believe you will benefit in getting your own custom bots to create email accounts and IG accounts.

@wrathofend Unlimited. As far as bandwidth.... I read that someone on this forum was using about 1gb per day for 30 accounts

@Kihler101 I wish I would create my own proxies haha. If i had an extra month to spare, I would probably try and learn it too. I'm kind of on a tight schedule these days though. I'm willing to pay a bit extra, I just need to know which ones are the best! lol

My dude..... is this all from experience? I've heard great things about iGramTool :(
Which proxies are you referring to when you say "Don't use this for acc management"?

I have a script thats creates 4000 ipv6 per server which I run on rasberry pis. Im open to helping you out with it. I just use the ipv6 for account managment but dont ever post with them or try creating accounts with them.

1. You using IGramTool?

2. Wow that's insane.... definitely interesting in learning more about it. Where did you get the knowledge to put it all together?
