    I just read wizard04?s twitter journey and was really inspired by it, but since I am a lazy person, I thought to myself what if I will not do manual creation of accounts and everything will be outsourced, Will it make a difference? So here you go, this thread is born
    Anyway, I think this is not considered a journey but more of a case study, but still, I will be updating it on a weekly basis or whenever there is significant event that will happen as this progress


    Below are the set up that I will do for this one:


    Twitter accounts ? purchased 50 pva twitter accounts @ $0.30 = $15
    Tweets ? initially text tweets, purchased 15k worth of tweets for $5
    Proxies ? purchased 10 + 2 proxies at instantproxies for $10/month
    Twitter bot ? purchased FollowLiker for $97.99
    VPS ? already have one for my other campaigns so I will not be including this in the cost although you can purchase one for $10/month

    So in total, the upfront cost for this campaign is $127.99 and the recurring cost will be $10/month without the VPS, if you consider buying VPS then it will be $137.99 upfront and the recurring cost will be $20/month


    I am considering to run this campaign for a year, so total cost will be $237.99 without VPS and $357.99 with VPS


    I can?t think of short term milestones at the moment but at the end of this campaign which is 1 year from now, I am expecting that this should produce at least 1M twitter followers, and as for the earnings, I think it should be able to generate at least 10x the total money I spent.


    Methodology


    I will be using the twitter setup stated in this thread for safety measures


    Aside from that I will not be buying fake followers so this campaign might have a very very slow start until it breaks the 2k followers which, I believe is still ok for me since I am not in a rush. Will it break the 2000 follower mark? I don?t know, we?ll find out later


    Also, FollowLiker is set up to 50 threads with 1:5 proxy ratio (1 proxy ? 5 twitter accounts) which I think is still reasonable and still below twitter?s radar


    I am planning to target a majority of US followers so I will be setting up FL to run 8am ? 11pm US time


    I will just be tweeting 1-2 generic text tweets a day per account until I get to a certain amount of followers


    I will also be using wizard04?s strategy of not following users who followed you and unfollowing users who did not follow you after 5 days


    This is my setup for now. I am still waiting for the accounts to be delivered so there is nothing much that I can do at the moment and just play with FL with my old twitter account. I started yesterday and as of this writing, I gained 7 followers

    Good luck in your journey!

    I am no expert and all, but five accounts on single proxy, I use at max 3 and I am super paranoid, what do you think is safe limit? Also, any monetization plans in the future?

    I am using FL for now and altough I had some problems this thing is an amazing piece of software, I am gaining on average around 2-3k followers just through following and one tweet per day :)!

    No idea as well. Its just that the ratio came from FL user guide. Anyway, i will just be tweeting general texts so i see no issues with it but the moment one of my accounts get banned then i will change the proxy ratio

    Monetization plans? I'll cross the bridge when i get there. But most probably from affiliate links

    During my test, I tried to follow accounts through scraping by keyword but the problem is I am getting other IMers as well. And I have no idea if this is good or bad so maybe when its time for my real campaign, i'll just try to scrape followers of celebrities/public figures that i think is within my niche

    No idea to be honest. And I am not really thinking about it at the moment and just focused on building followers. Maybe I'll monetize it once the followers reach 100k++

    my plan is to age the accounts first, so maybe no link tweets in the first 3-4 months or until I reach 100k++ followers

    Update:

    The twitter accounts were delivered a few hours ago. Just finished setting up FL and now it is running and some of the accounts have gained followers already

    Let's see how it goes from here..
