    Hi a little about me i'm 26 years old,from Ireland and a complete noob when it comes to im.I have played online poker as my main source of income for the last 6 years with decent results.

    I have always been interested in the idea of making some side income online and after finding Bhw i decided it was time to give it a try.I purchased a aliexpress affiliate site from a bhw member yaros and i have to say i'm really impressed with the end product

    so the plan is to promote this site using instagram and facebook and hopefully make a few sales,easier said then done though as i'm learning as a go pretty much.

    i went with the weed/smoking accessories niche and have created 1 instagram account so far and have started to manually follow users from the big pages in my niche

    I'm not sure how many people i can follow a day without getting banned but i'm going to start of by following 500 a day and then unfollowing after 3 days,when i grow my account to a couple of hundred followers i plan on doing some small giveaways to help grow the account.

    i started this thread to keep track of how it goes and to also get some advice if i'm lucky :) will try updated it every evening,i plan on spending 4 days playing online poker and 2 days working on this project a week.

    my first goal is to earn back the money i spent on the website which is $129

    stats so far on instagram

    followers:64
    following:187

    total spent:$129
    total income:$0

    Hey cool project :)

    This site you purchased was already having recurring visitors or you just paid someone to create it?
    Are you planning to have more than just one instagram acc?
