    Hey there, welcome to my Instagram Journey. This journey might be a little different than the others. After researching Instagram Marketing extensively, I've decided to approach the platform in mass quantities. Here's what I've done so far, in my past 3 months of research:
    • Created a username generator that can output thousands of HQ unique Instagram usernames, niche specific.
    • Created a bio generator template generator that can output thousands of HQ unique bio templates, niche specific.
    • Created a full name template generator.
    • Scrape hundreds of big non-private Instagram accounts to scrape followers from, organized into niches, with a total of over a billion followers.
    • Hand picked 250 HQ profile pictures, organized into niches.
    • Organized about 500 emoji's into appropriate niche categories, to be used with bio/full name templates.
    • Scraped 500,000 Instagram-quality photos, and categorized into 36 sub-niches
    • Scraped 30,000 hashtags categorized into amount of posts.
    Everything has been done with a modular component architecture, so it won't require much (if any) individual attention for any new account that I make. I'm in close contact with all of my providers, and I'm confident I can be scaling over 100 accounts a day in just a few months time. All accounts will be the quality of an authority account, nothing spammy. Right now I'll be starting out with only 150 accounts so I can familiarize myself with the process, and then it's time to scale. In the mean time I'll be working on my caption generator, I've already designed the system, I just need to implement it. When it's done it should be able to generate millions of HQ captions, niche specific. You couldn't even be able to tell it wasn't a human if you tried! (Besides that fact that the caption isn't dependent with the content of the picture, rather the niche, haha)

    Hopefully this could be something special. I guess we'll just wait and see :)

    The sheer amount of preparation this must take makes me tired just imagining it. :confused:

    But please tell me you've actually managed a few accounts before you started all this. Like anything else, you need to learn by doing and jumping in with something of this scale makes me anxious it'll end in disaster. :confused:

    Probably should have took your advise... Just imported all of the accounts into Mass Planner and now 80% of them are needing phone verification. When I verify them they later ask for email verification. I don't know what's wrong. Could it be the proxies? idk. Something that could have been an issue is that when I imported the 150 accounts I hit verify for all of them, making them all log in at once. It could also be the account provider though, because 2 of the accounts were mine and they did not have receive email or phone verification.

    I think what I am going to do is ask my proxy provider to switch out my proxies, and also I am going to order 150 new accounts from a different provider... What do you guys recommend?

    Definitely your accounts. When accounts are made fresh on one IP, and then abandoned and logged in from a different IP, usually issues arise. Like you said, the two accounts you made were fine, this is a huge clue. Try a different provider. It's best if you just make accounts yourself though.

    Same happened to me today.. 10 accounts asked for phone verification right after 15 mins on FL. Still not sure if it was FL settings or the proxies.

    I was thinking the provider too, thanks for confirmation. Do you think it is necessary to switch out my proxies too, since I logged the accounts on them?

    Good luck in your journey
    But can that Username generator generate unique and unused usernames?
    If yes can you please share it if possible, :p

    The username generator works by entering in an adjective for a niche, and then the it returns niche-specific usernames using that adjective as a prefix/root of the username. So if I gave it away, all the good adjectives would be used up, haha.

    No definitely not necessary unless you are using a ton of accounts per proxy. How many accounts per proxy did you do in that first run?

    sounds really interesting.
    start slow with you accounts ... maybe thats the reason for the phone verification IG is asking.

    You shotgunned 150 new accounts onto Instagram on what is most likely a similar IP range.

    You've pretty much flagged the 50+ proxies you're using in a single go.

    I haven't even started yet, I just added them to Mass Planner.
    So I would need new proxies?

    What you really need is to spend 2-3 weeks working on 2-3 accounts. Like I said in my previous post, learn by doing then scale.

    Otherwise, one small mistake repeated across hundreds of accounts will put you right back where you are now, even with new proxies.

    I've never ran into phone verifications for 6 months, but since 2 weeks I hit them pretty regularly. Not sure if the botsoftware is footprinting since some IG changes.....no idea how that works.
