    Hey guys, long time reader but noob poster. I've been reading recently and following Isamxm's very successful journey with Instagram and FL.

    I have a very basic setup right now and i'll give you the breakdown. Really I'm very new to this so any advice you guys have is very appreciated as to what i can do to potentially grow the accounts and scale.

    The idea for my setup is to have (for now) total 30 accounts.
    I bought 10 x dedicated proxies, 10 x $0.88 cent domains and all those ten redirect to one .com domain with a pretty decent landing page which then redirects to content locker.
    I plan on having 3 accounts running per proxy/domain pair.
    I have them all broken down into an excel sheet so the same 3 accounts will always be using the same proxy and always promoting the same domain that way it keeps them separated and try to avoid mass bans.

    Currently I have been creating all accounts myself. So far I have 10, 1 per proxy/domain.
    6/10 accounts PVA'd yesterday a bit after creation and some a couple times after.

    Overnight 10 accounts ran, 9 are still going 1 got PVA (ran over 8 hours)

    I am monetizing the accounts with a content locker from OGads.

    My current questions I'm wondering are:

    1. Should I treat my accounts as "spam accounts" and assume they will get banned in 2-3 days so just go higher follow settings (my niche is giveaways) OR should i keep them fairly slow follow settings and try to grow them/hope they dont get banned?

    2. Currently I'm phone verifying accounts with smspva which costs $0.15 each time which isnt really a lot if an account needs PVA once or twice, but if its more then that it becomes kind of inefficient. Perhaps there is another way for me to PVA that is more solid? I tried virtual #s and it worked on a few accounts but you can only change those once a month. Somebody suggested I might be able to run those virtual phone # apps through proxies as well, i might try that.

    3. Current Follow/Liker settings are:

    Follow Limit: 10 -20
    Daily Follow Limit: 400-500
    Delay Follow : 45 -70 seconds

    Do you guys think these should be upped or downed or? New to FL so could use all the advice I can get. Like I said accounts are a bit less then 24 hours old. They have normal profile pic of girls/female name/ 5 spam pics related to giveaways niche and domain short link in the bio.

    Thanks for any of your help guys and a very special thanks to Isamxm for his journey

    So far today 10:30am running 9 accounts and at $3.35 (only 25% conversion)

    25% conversion is nice. You can't say only 25%. and make your settings low. I suggest you go with 150 to 200 follow per day. These may ask for phone verification and may be ban if you use aggressive settings. Give some time and then you will see improvement and $$.

    Good luck for you journey.

    Thanks dude :)

    Thanks for the advice, its one of the things I've been thinking about. My only concern is that I will drop the settings to 150-200 and the accounts will still get banned in a day or two due to looking so spammy/being reported.

    Might try testing different settings on different accounts and see the response. Thanks for the support!

    *Adding another question here, the more pertinent one, I'm going to try and scale a bit today bu t currently I'm running FL just on my computer cuz its a pretty fast desktop pc. But if i'm scaling above 10 accounts I'm thinking I should get a VPS?

    Any suggestions on a good VPS service? Don't want to spend too much. I was looking at this one:

    When looking at VPS servers for FL I should just look for lots of ram right? not so much SSD space or CPU?

    Why I only see CPI go with IG?
    And what program will you promote while posting on IG?
    I have just registered PerInstallCash, doesnt much program from them.
    What CPI network will you recommend me to register? Thanks

    Umm I'm not sure as far as I understand this particular content locker is for Apps and downloading apps and seeing as instagram is a lot of mobile users the idea is it will convert well because its not a big deal to just download an app.
    I promote the OGads network, with a giveaways theme. But i can't necessarily recommend yet as I am just starting with them. We will see soon hopefully how it does.

    I just made 6 new accounts and I will PVA the one that needs it so hopefully soon will have 9+7 accounts going.

    One of my main concerns is that before I could make all my accounts through bluestacks so I could add photos to the accounts. Now bluestacks says "Too many registers from this device" and I can't make anymore accounts there. So I have to create through browser and then go to blustacks which is tedious and a lot of work. Wondering if I should just leave the accounts with no photos at all, just bio+link and spam like that? Or is it worth my time actually going to bluestacks and uploading photos to each account?

    Good luck with your journey. I'm trying to do something similar. I think I'm gonna go with 1 domain per account though,

    just to be safe. I'm a pretty cheap guy but a domain for pennies, or less than a $1.00, might be the difference in saving

    accounts and proxies. I have been looking at those same ovh vps as well. Does Follow liker need a windows vps? The

    windows vps at ovh are a bit more, I think it was like $11 or more per month.

    Thanks man :) Well i have 10 cheap domains (.club, .online, .site) and they all redirect to one .com but yes technically when i have all the accounts setup im expecting to have 3 accounts per each cheap domain. It might be too much... im not sure. As far as VPS i think it does need a windows VPS because I have the windows version of the bot lol but I dont know maybe I'm wrong.

    Currently my problem is this. I'm creating accounts pretty fast on firefox through proxies. Made about 8 accounts and now im getting hit with this from instagram:
    Not sure why. I tried clearing my cookies/history in firefox, even tried doing it through private window. I'm assuming it could be because i am copy+pasting the same info in the bio and the instagram bots are catching the similarities in the bios. Perhaps I just need to wait a while.

    I don't use aggressive settings with my new accounts. I set them 100 to 120 following and one post one day. That's it and they stick long. Don't go beyond Instagram radar.

    If you get your niche then you must increase your accounts with .com domain.

    You must take a nice VPS for managing all the accounts. I use serverhosh VPS they give nice service and cheap. You can search serverhosh on bhw.

    Good luck again.

    Thanks mate! will keep that in mind when choosing my VPS soon!

    My big problems are account creation... I can make the accounts but can't put my links or bio in...facebook keeps hitting me with "We're unable to save your changes due to an automated spam block. If this is a mistake, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience."

    does anybody have ANY clue how i can avoid this?

    Also getting a few PVAs... really annoying but is being taken care of. 9 accounts hit their follow limits for the day so have only 5 accounts or so running right now. 3 others need PVA

    Nice Good luck! :) Glad my journey could inspire you! You'll get that 50$ sooner than you think if you work as you should every day ! And thats a good feeling trust me haha. For me slow settings simply dont work (for example 100-120 a day) So I'm still testing because many have these low settings and it seems to work for them but not for me :p I follow 500 a day.

    I have tested lots of things mate. I go with slow settings in starting then i increase slowly slowly week by week. 100 to 120 following work. You can't say it don't work. Yeah i understand it don't give you huge earning but in starting something is better than nothing. You can't use aggressive settings with new account. If you are looking for good earning then give some time then boost your following numbers then bang.

    One most important thing is don't use same image H5 tag on lots of account. IG immediate catch you and ban your account. If you are using old account then they ask phone number verification. Lots of thing i noticed i will post a thread regarding Instagram tricks. But now i am worried about new IG update. They are alerting peoples about malware. You know that? check out the link :- http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/new-ig-fuckin-stupid-update.850226/#post-8976784

    Sorry for my bad english lol. But sharing is caring.

    thanks dude

    Ok so i've been busy. Its been a bitch but I've finally been able to phone verify a bunch of accounts (a bunch of times!) but to the point i think they look stable to go over night. but you never know

    Right now looks like I am ending the day with $4.60 but thats with generally because most of my accounts were PVA most day, was running 7-9 at most.

    Now i have 19 running, I am wondering if I should have them run over night? Yesterday I let it go over night and it was done following by around 11am. Im worried that doesnt attract the most attention, maybe i'm better off starting it in the morning?

    Anyways we will see how it goes. Going to watch it over the next half hour and make sure there isnt any more PVA

    1- You get the spam block error because you maybe using the same bio in all the accounts..

    2- You adding the link the same day you creating the accounts, if you want the accounts to last long than its recommended to let it age for a month atleast before adding the link.

    3- Activity should start slow then build up slowly each week.

    4- Its recommended to upload 10 posts so that account looks less spammy but again @Isaxmx is having success with no posts

    5- Are you using meta refresh redirect? or iframing?
