    Epic Instagram + FL Journey To SOMEWHERE!

    Hey guys, I'm Luke.

    I joined BHW a few years ago, and since then I've done a ton of messing around with IM. Some stuff has worked, some hasn't. My greatest success so far has been making 8 Instagram accounts and getting them to around 15k followers each (in 9 months) with Instagress (I haven't monetized any of them yet though, because I was using them to promote another account, rather than try to make money). Here's more info on that if you care: http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/i-...nts-best-way-to-monetize.868055/#post-9178450

    Stuff That's Been Screwed Up In the Past:

    BANNED: 3 Facebook accounts with 2,000 friends that I got in 1 night.
    BANNED: 1 Instagram account with 7k. Apparently posting "repetitive content" is a thing.

    BANNED: 1 Instagram account (for my eBay business) with 400 followers.
    RESTORED: 1 Instagram account for my eBay business) with 400 followers. I'm a boss.
    CANCELED: App Trailers Affiliate Program that I used to make $170 with just a picture, an app, and my ipod.
    EXPIRED: The website that I worked hard on and eventually got too lazy to update.
    DELETED: A YouTube channel I made with a (fake) "free download" link (adfly) that just went to a "this file has been deleted" page. (made $22 in 1 night. lol.)
    ...and tons of other things I won't bother mentioning

    I've never made enough money from IM to quit my day job, but I have a bit coming in:

    Monthly Income:
    $2,200 - 9 to 5 Video Editing Job (this doesn't even cover my monthly expenses)
    $1,600 - My wife's job (lol)
    $400 - VERY complicated version of drop-shipping on eBay (Don't ask)
    $30 - AdSense on YouTube (I'm a YouTuber)
    $15 - Selling stock footage on Pond5 (I put parentheses on all the other ones--^ so, I did it here too)

    What I'm going to do:
    Since all of my Instagress time is about to run out (and I'm not excited about spending $300+ on buying another years worth of time), I'm going to be switching to FollowLiker. I considered it before, but was worried that the developers wouldn't bother to keep it updated -- a year later, and it's still the top bot on the market.

    TIP: If you are going to use Instagress, wait until Cyber Monday to buy time. (A years worth of time for 1 account goes down from $80 to $60)

    I also just tested out Archie (the Twitter automation site) and liked it, so I am getting the Twitter verison of FollowLiker too (probably won't use it to much though).

    Goals:
    1. Get my 15k IG accounts up to 50k so I can start selling shoutouts (let me know if you have any better magnetization ideas. They're all in the "comedy YouTuber"/"Oh wow, look at how cool I am" niche.
    2. Start a ton of new accounts in various niches to experiment with, and try to grow them to 15k in under 9 months.
    3. Make back the money I will have spent on FollowLiker.
    4. Generate a passive income.
    5. Generate a passive income from only YouTube, and have the other stuff just be supplemental.


    Things I don't know how to do:
    Phone verify a ton of new accounts - For all of my old accounts I borrowed a phone from a family member for, but now I've moved out and am living on the other side of the country. (Plus I'm in the US, so I can't get prepaid SIM cards cheaply.) I've tried verifying with virtual phone numbers before, but 99% of the time they haven't worked. Whatever, I'll figure it out when it becomes a problem.
    How CPA stuff works - I just haven't messed around with it much, but I'll figure it out when I get there.


    Feel free to give me help/suggestions if you think I'm missing anything!

    I'll come back and update this thread whenever anything important happens!

    What niche is your YouTube channel? You should make 10 Instagram accounts related to what you do on YouTube, and promote your YouTube channel on your Instagram accounts to get subscribers. That's what I'm currently doing.

    Good luck PChanger! And nice advice bigstuffpoppin although it's always the battle between combining forces vs try multiple different options and go with the one that shows the most promising.

    Because FollowLiker seems to be the tip bot on the market, and also I'm sick of monthly fees. Haha!

    I want to buy 10 PVA Instagram accounts (ideally with custom info that I can supply, but if not that's cool too). to test out FollowLiker with (don't worry, I'll baby them and only do like 50 follows per day for the first week or two).

    I know a ton of people sell them on the market place, but I read some reviews and on a ton of them, people said that like 80% of the accounts were banned within a day and 100% of them were within a week.

    Can anyone link me to a reputable seller that they'd recommend? I've never bought any IG accounts before and I'd rather not have them banned super quickly.

    Thanks!

    ~Luke

    UPDATE:
    Purchased 10 new Instagram accounts off the market place for $6.50 I haven't gotten a confirmation email or anything yet, but they said it could take up to 24hrs.

    Created a new IG account in the travel/pretty places niche and posted 12 pics to it. Set it to follow about 50 people per day in FL. Scraped a ton of related pics, sorted through them manually and pulled out the best 300. Queued up 9 of them to autopost.

    They're brand new accounts, so I'm going to baby them and do about 25 follows per day and post 1-2 images per day for the first week.

    Hey PChanger,

    Great work, keep it up! :) BigStuffPoppin had a great idea making multiple Instagrams for your niche and promoting your YouTube channel. Glad to see you purchased the 10 accounts, keep us posted on your journey!

    Good Luck!

    Thanks! Yeah I have a bunch of "clones" of my main account already. Think I'm gonna use some (if not all) of my 10 new accounts as fake "fan accounts" for astroturfing. I'll keep you guys updated on how it works out! :)
