    As my other journeys failed miserably, I have decided to reinvest my time and money into my music blog. I have currently 4400 subscribers on my music channel on YouTube. 5500 on my Instagram.

    The plan here is to start as many 'clones' with different branding, get a good following (in the hundred thousands or millions) and then redirect everyone to my main Instagram/YouTube page.
    The start is 30 accounts for Instagram. None are banned, most are warming up now following 150 a day. This may eventually go on Twitter as well depending on how successful this journey is.

    Software + Costs:
    Follow Liker - $100
    Accounts - $35
    MultiLoginApp - $9/month
    SSLPrivateProxy - $42/month
    VPS BermanHosting $29/month
    So after many failures and close to $200 in losses, I've mastered the art of not getting instantly banned on Instagram.

    I'll save you that money and tell you:
    - Buy accounts from trusted sellers only
    - Buy proxies from private sources only specialized for Instagram (in my case SSLPrivateProxy)
    - Start off with max 250 follows per day on Follow Liker
    - Use MultiLoginApp for proxy support (I edited my accounts via Firefox - desktop)
    - Don't (under any circumstances) put link in the first month especially if BlackHat Niche
    - Brand all your accounts (or use hot girls if not branding) to make it seem real

    I will be reporting my main page's IG ("fans"), my main page's subscribers, my followers over other pages and amount of accounts. Think of the subscribers measure as an alternative to reporting income. (my channel is growing from other ways too)

    Current subscribers: 4370
    Current fans: 5300

    Current accounts: 30
    Current followers: 80

    Good luck OP!! Following your journey. Please keep update, must I'll comeback. I think your proxy cost is little high.
    Here, you'll found few proxy sellers. You can knock them for trial. Must they will count your for review.

    Followliker! I use it too. It's pretty nifty and makes so many things so much easier. Subscribing for regular updates. Keep us posted. Cheers.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. I didn't do anything today honestly... Impressed at this 1k growth on the first day, it's pretty nice.

    Followback rate is not the best if I'm being honest here, but that's normal in the music niche.

    Do you have any tips for starting out a youtube channel?

    I feel like your youtube channel can bring you traffic on instagram and vice versa, good luck with your journey OP!

    What tips were you looking for? The main post has a lot of tips.

    I don't care about Instagram traffic, the ultimate goal is to get subscribers on my channel. But Instagram is helping me get there so I don't mind using it.

    My tips for starting out a YouTube channel....
    1. Have consistent branding - try to spend time at the beginning creating a good persona/brand/logo etc. You don't want to change it up too much.
    Example of what you wanna avoid: PROXIMITY. Pandora Music -> Pandoric Music -> PRX Music -> Proximity.
    Example of a good channel: Majestic Casual. They have been consistent since the beginning, haven't changed their style.
    2. Decide whether you're going to be a personal channel or professional channel. Will you use I or We as pronouns? How will you address your viewers?
    3. Only make videos that you think will have appeal for longer periods of time. (UNLESS you are making a video for something that will blow your channel up instantly.)
    4. Target keywords with high searches and try to get a position in the top 5 spots using whatever methods necessary.
    5. Get people to SUBSCRIBE - this is one of the most important ranking factors too. People with less views than me but 10x subscribers than me are outranking me on videos, it's sad.

    There are a lot of things you can do that aren't exactly what YouTube wants (e.g. buying views), but if you need more info let me know via PM.


    4/20 Update:
    I literally got home at almost midnight after blazing it all day. Bought a top-secret software which should help me blow up a little. I won't say what it is unless I'm sure it's bulletproof as I don't want this saturated.

    Current subscribers: 4420 (+20)
    Current fans: 5341 (+11)

    Current accounts: 30 (no change)
    Current followers: 1663 (+569)

    PS whoever voted this 2/5, fuck you :)

    The best of luck on your journey, you have success, it should be noted that I believethat the cost of the proxy is very expensive. There are others who can still operate with one lower cost.

    Wowowo I'm so excited for this consistent growth. The first month or so is always more boring, I'm still following 50-150 per day so it's not overly amazing. After I reach 3000+ following on each account I will unfollow back to 0 and then increase the amount of people I'll follow.
