    I've been reading loads of info on IG money making and such.
    My question is does it really pay off puting all the money and time in the account making/buying.

    I mean you first need to buy account for instagram and then u need to buy massplanner.
    I know it's not even 10 euro for 20 accounts for IG and 20 euro for 1 month of massplanner.
    But does the technique still work, i'm in a pity with my money but I can sped 30-40 euro easily.

    I just don't like failing and doing things wrong and waste all my time and money on things that actually don't even work anymore because IG is full of spam and bots of 'insta fame'.
    But for now i'm liking unlinking etc following/ made a wix website as landingpage with two buttons that redirect to OGads premade landing pages and still nog 0 clicks even if i spammed the shit out of a +-500 people.

    Better to just pay for everything and watch how it goes and be patient ? Or just try to be inventive and try other methods?

    I would gladly give this a shot but I just can't without asking some more 'smart' people that actually tried more methods to give their opinions about this.

    Nope, it is not worth it. I would quit now and get a job at Mc Donalds.

    No one is going to give you assurances of earnings. If you can put a new and unique twist on even an old method, then you will surely make money. But most social media methods involve investment (buying accounts, software, proxies etc...) and an amount of time for earnings to ramp up. Failure is inevitable, and you probably won't make money the first time you attempt it.

    The best advice I can give you is:

    The truth is, you never really know unless you really try

    Do not be afraid to fail or take risks. There is potential to make profit in everything. It sounds like you need to research your target audience and find the best sources to follow from.

    I always see these expenses as an investment of building a marketing network. Unless you flag the accounts based on your own stupidity, you will always have the "reach" from buying supplies to make it happen.

    Trial and error on methods for monetization... beta test techniques/niches. Observe your stats. View the initial startup money from a different perspective which allows you to reach a large market for quite some time.

    I'll be brutally honest
    Your first attempts would most likely amount to zero or nothing. You may hit lucky and make a buck or two.
    You see all the "i made xxx in 7 days, if i can, you too/for newbies" bullshit
    yeah, those methods work, saturated at best however, what alot of them forget to mention is
    the amount of experience, bulit up before implanting that idea/methos twist.
    how much research before hand, how much money they spent on testing shit out, mucking and fucking around.

    However for someone like you (too bad if i come across as a dick, but i believe you rather the truth than it sugarcoated)
    who has knowledge via reading other's success & failures
    but experience wise, virtually zero
    you will inevitably get raped by IM.

    Let's take a moment to look back, all the threads on the topic of -> "THIS METHOD DOESN'T WORK" .
    Because, they were in your position, read alot, gained knowledge, and attempt to apply it but unsuccessful (which is actually VERY VERY NORMAL)
    Think of it this way, if you are a real estate salesman, how many people who come look at houses are gonna buy on the spot (hence why failure is very normal)

    Despite me saying all that, if you have the will and guts to push on trying, and attempt to try again, IM will be for you.
    If you are looking for a quick way to make some cash, you are very much better off with a real job.

    You're not gonna make it if you're afraid to fail. You might fail 20 times until you gain enough experience to halfway make it.

    Thanks all of your HONEST opinions and toughts about this 'problem' i'm having today and the last few days.
    I think everybody can sometimes use the words of other people even if they are hard and not sugercoated.
    Only these comments actually mean something then actually answering my 'question'.

    Thank you all!

    i'll be in touch <3 :oops:

    You should test it yourself, telling that it works is like welcoming more competition.

    I don't do IG but take most advice as a grand of salt, only your own data speaks the truth.

    The reason why 500 people ignored your account is they know you are scam. I bet you'll get 0~1 clicks if you keep doing that. You think you made some nice profile & wix landing page? REALLY?

    Have a vision/goal of what you're trying to accomplish (example: I want to make 1000 per day through IG by next year). Go research blueprints of successful IGs and try to replicate their success in your own fashion or if you're a visionary god, go venture on your creative projects and test them.

    So Learn as much as possible, talk to people, make sure every action you take aligns with your vision/goal by questioning everything youre learning and reading - why and how does this work? does this really work? what's the truth behind it? how does this relate? test, retest, optimize.

    Thats my 2 pretty cents for you.

    Throw shit at a wall and you get a wall with shit on it.

    Have a meaning behind your shit throwing and someone might call it art and pay you.

    keep the cost low and use another bot not mass planner which is expensive.....if you don't have much money do it manually :)

    Like everyone says, it takes a lot of work,
    There will be failures before successes.

    I have multiple accounts. I'm trying a bunch of different things and growing.

    But the one account that actually makes money is a 5k account. Thats because I put a lot of effort into it;
    making good content myself and getting brands, websites to feature me,etc. Absolutely zero bots as I am working with 2 large brands and they check everything and I'm under contract that specifically prohibits EG/Telegram.
    But since it is 5K account, it isn't deemed as an influencer. So I decided to create multiple accounts.


    The other ones are just like everyone else, amassing a lot of followers and I'll see where it take me there.
    But at the same time, I feel real bad and nasty about those other accounts because I'm basically taking other people's content. It is basically an ethical, moral dilemma for me. Even with attribution, it is just plain wrong. I am hoping once I get large enough on those feeds, I'll start deleting the posts.

    They're growing much faster than my 5K "legit" account. How I'll monetize with a 60K account? I don't know. $200 for a shout-out?
    Or get paid $1500 for a photograph shoot with my 5K account. So the point I am making is don't get caught up with all the unicorn accounts.
    There will be some hard work involved.

    Good thing I still have a day job so it isn't taking much of my time.
