    1. My sources satisfy a couple requirements:
    - Al least 10k followers, the more the better
    - At least 5% EG rate, the more the better
    - Follow followers if you want to grow fast, follow users that interact if you want better engagement.
    For filters:
    - Target only certain languages (depends on what I need)
    - Skip followers
    - At least 4 posts
    - Has a profile pics
    - Max 3000 following

    That's the basic, depends on situation I will make some changes.

    2. I never buy fake engagements. It's a horrible strategy. If you buy engagements then stop buying it, IG will see that your eg has decreased massively -> It will automatically consider your posts as less engaging -> Not showing it to more people -> You kill your own engagement.

    3. Either doing powerlikes or child accounts method. That's your only options for big accounts.

    Checked out these three posts, it's more than enough for you to understand about hashtags & hashtag research tools:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/instagram-list-of-free-hashtag-research-tool-to-increase-your-exposure.1094485/

    1. I've only used Advertsafe so far.
    2. Cloaker is a must, maximum 5 accounts per domain. If you want to put link in, rest 30-60 minutes between accounts.
    3. No, use cloaker whenever possible. Don't save a couple dollars and lose lots more $$.


    - Learn copywriting
    - Focus on your account quality, not quantity
    - Pay attention to details: Bio, Caption, Avatar, Posts etc.
    - Do lots of A/B testing

    1. No, tbh I prefer organic engagement rather than comment/engagement/DM groups.
    2. I don't know any tool like that, but if you need hashtag research tools, this thread is more than enough:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/instagram-list-of-free-hashtag-research-tool-to-increase-your-exposure.1094485/
    3. I teach my VAs to do it according to my procedure. This is important to keep the quality high.
    4. 750 F / 750 UF / 500 Likes / 50 DMs / 1 Post / 60 Stories per day.

    Shoutouts > EG Groups > Instagram Ads

    Note that you have to know how to spend your money properly, or you will waste lots of money.
    Thank you :) I need more people like you haha :D

    1. 5 accounts per domain. Don't use big accounts for CPA.
    2. Yes it always a good idea to use real sims
    3. I often told clients to use IGBlade (free), they can check themselves. It saves time for both of us.
    4. I did split test to see where to tag for best conversions, so depends. Spintax: I have billions of combinations for each niche.
    5. I hired people who know something about bots so I don't have to teach them everything. Each VA has certain permissions depend on their jobs, but they don't have access to client accounts though.
    6. Use only 1 SIM per account if you don't want your accs got banned.
    7. No. You can make more money with other things.
    8. You have to restrict them on what they know and what they have access to. Best is to outsource repetitive job only (scraping, researching etc.), not the botting part.
    9. I used to do DMs and mass email, but then I have enough personal connections and credibility such that clients come to me.

    I always recommend high quality mobile proxies. You can shoot me a PM if you want to know my provider.[/QUOTE]

    I can't Direct Message. So any chance you can PM me your Proxy provider. Thank you in advance.[/QUOTE]
    PMed.

    I've repeated this again and again in this thread. If you do CPA, use advertsafe + .com domain, max 5 accounts per domain.

    Basically you create a bunch of accounts in one niche and use them to promote 1 main account in that niche via DMs, tags, bio tags, comments etc.

    As I grow and manage larger accounts, how can I best comment back on people's posts to get my engagement rate up?

    I've considered having a VA go into my Facebook business account and comment through there, but some of the reply functions don't work the same as they do on the mobile app.

    Should I spin up a virtual emulator that I can allow a VA to access to in order to make the comment directly on the app, or do you think it is not worth the trouble and commenting should just be done manually, or is replying to comments not a priority in your opinion?

    I'd love to get your thoughts. Thanks!

    I would say replying to comment depends on which type of accounts you have.

    If it's a brand or an influencer, replying comment is important and should be done manually. If you don't want your VAs to have access to your accounts, there are many management tools for IG that allow you to reply to comment, search it up.

    If you're mass growing general accounts then it's not as important.

    Questions about affiliate marketing with IG:

    Now there are 2 ways to do affiliate marketing:
    - A custom code (eg. GET10 for a 10% discount) which the customers enter at checkout.
    - An affiliate link.

    What I am currently doing is the first option with a discount code. I put the code in my bio as well as the website's homepage (NOT the affiliatelink). Same with the stories.
    When someone purchases with my code, I get a commission. Works well.

    Now my question for using the second method. I read a lot about IG not liking affiliate links in their bio as well as stories which can lead to 1. they remove the link or 2. they shut down your account (especially, if shortened with bit.ly or other link shorteners). What about link shorteners in general? I see lots of people, even big influencers using them to "hide" their affiliate links. And there are lots of them putting their unshortened affiliate link in their bio, as well. It does not seem that IG penalizes them for their action.

    What would be the safest method to work with affiliate links?
    Personally, I would create some kind of landing page with only a button in the center which says "Take me to the offer" or something like that with the affiliate link on it. That is no redirection, because the user has to actively click on that button to get to the offer.
    How would you use a cloaker like advertsafe in this case?

    I would love to hear your experiences with affiliate marketing on IG!

    According to me, Instagram ads will work more effectively.

    Do you posts any stories on your automated accounts or are you just posting in the feed ?
    Because I would like to create an account in the niche of entrepreneurship and monetise it in different ways but for that I need to post story and create highlights stories (also using archives to make my instagram page more attractive) .
    Except that on Jarvee and on computer it is impossible to do that.
    So I logged to the proxy address with my phone and then logged into my account with the Instagram application (while making sure to stop Jarvee on that account). Instagram directly asked me for a phone check (which I made thanks to Getsmscode) and now I can no longer post on account (the photos are removed directly).

    Could you explain to me what I did wrong and how can I avoid getting blocked my account??

    Sorry but I'm new trying to automisate instagram's account with proxis..

    For me, if custom code works, I would definitely keep doing that. Affiliate links simply do not look good with IG, so I avoid using these but if the link is from an authority domain then it should be fine. Definitely shorten the link if you use affiliate links.

    If you want to promote one link in multiple accounts, then use cloaker/landing page is a must. But if you only promote in 1-2 accounts, shorten the link should do just fine.

    No I don't post stories on botting accounts. If I do, I would use Jarvee built-in feature.

    2 issues that you have:
    - You use Getsmscode, which is used by hundreds more people, so the numbers that you used have been used many times before. So, use real SIMs.
    - You login using IG app on your phone, which I suppose that you have logged in with other accounts as well. If that account is your main, don't risk it.

    And if you're using datacenter proxies, switch to a mobile one.

    Hi,
    We have around 300 Instagram accounts and recently we tried to add bio link to 10 of them.
    We use free .tk new domains that redirect with javascript (after 2 seconds) to a .com domain.

    The accounts got banned after 2 minutes of changing the bio link.

    What do you think is the reason for the ban?
    That might be the .tk free domains?

    Thanks :)

    You previously said that shoutouts are the best paid method to grow, any advice on choosing an account to work with on that? Most accounts seem to be pretty sketchy

    Really looking forward to your reply here. Thanks for doing this.

    I own a company that sells a product that is a great fit for many influencers. I believe the message is great enough where they would not be too hesitant to promote it. My model is to offer them 20-25% affiliate commission + free product. But I was thinking it's possible to cut out the free product and just pitch them the 20-25% affiliate commission, if I was able to really scale my reach of DMs/emails.

    1. What is the best way to contact mass amounts of IG influencers (I'm thinking in the 10-20k follower range)?
    2. What is the best way to DM mass amounts of IG influencers (the ones with no contact info are probably more likely to accept deals because they are less commercialized)?
    3. Do you think it's a better idea to target specific geo-locations at a time, to potentially grow the brand in one area first? If so, is there a way to discover only people from one area (besides just targeting a hashtag like #boston)?
    4. What are the best tools for managing what I'm trying to do?

    Thanks a lot for all this valuable info☺️
    I had one newbie question. I bought 50 aged insta accs and proxies as well. How do i change the profile pic and bio. Do i login with my residental ip and change those things and then use the proxies in jarvee. Or do i need to use proxies when i edit the info as well?

    If I want to spin syntax and blast all the people I follow with a DM, separated by time, taking scheduled breaks, and switching between proxied accounts after each message, is there a way to do that? Is there a software that provides exactly this? How would I go about doing this?
