    I have set myself a goal for 2016 and that is to make £250K by the end of 2016. The callable here is that I will only be using Instagram as my foundations so that means owning a lot off Instagram accounts and diversify. I won’t solely be making money directly off my Instagram account through features and affiliate programs. I will also be developing apps that will be pushed through my Instagram accounts.


    My goal for £250K sets me at a goal of on average £695 a day. Now I know through research when I build strong Instagram accounts with a large following I can sell features for $85 a piece. If I was solely using features for my income it would mean I would need roughly 11 features a day which isn’t unrealistic but there isn’t a good enough guarantee that I would get 11 features a day. Affiliate marketing could potentially bring in a lot more than £695 a day but as I don’t have any case studies to go from I don’t want to go all in on a method that I don’t know the potential results. Now the idea of developing apps and pushing them through Instagram personally feels like it could be a successful venture. I am a developer and a designer so I think that I can easily make the apps although I code in C# but I’ve heard the move to java isn’t too difficult.


    So the plan is:
    • Build 10 Instagram accounts and use Followliker to automate the building of the accounts.
    • Create all of the content to post on each account daily. (This is going to the a while).
    • Develop first app.
    • Wait until I have 10k followers on that apps niche.
    • Publish the app and pay for features on related niches.
    • Repeat the develop and release process until achieving my daily goal.
    Now I hope that this won’t look to you like another “Get 100k followers on Instagram “ threads. And something that has more substance and a better goal.
    I congratulate you on reading this thread and I hope that you follow my adventure to achieving my goal.


    Thank you
    DrawAlex

    P.S: I will post later on today letting you know my progress.

    Fantastic i really hope that you achieve this thread it is easily possible to do this, as I have few friends that make more then that per year on Instagram.

    But i think you should focus on building accounts in 2016 to build the foundation then have the goal of 250k in 2017

    5 accounts is perfect or even 3, if you have too many small accounts you wont make much money, focus on 1-2 big accounts and 1 smaller

    I currently have 5 accounts 2 are big rest are smaller and make good money off my big ones

    I don't want to demotivate you but your plan sound that your are going to fail. Why?? Bcz you have made goal for whole year but where is your short term goal? Like what you plan to achieve in next 15 days, 1 month or in next 2 months and action plan to achieve that?? If you are serious, do that too...

    Good luck OP

    You are making $0 with instagram but trying to get $695/day? Considering it also takes months to grow an account in size,
    It would roughly be ~1000/day if you take out the time to grow the accounts.

    Not saying it's an unrealistic goal because maybe you can create an app and make $xx,xxx but to go from $0 to $1000 is just unlikely.

    Good luck on your journey,Instagram is the place to make money now and Fl is great software. My only recommendation will be to use more accounts, 10 seems a bit low

    I mainly develop atomisation tools specialising in web atomisation. I'm currently having to code a Content Creator for Instagram as I've worked out its going to take me a long time to make all the content for these accounts.

    As said above I am developing a bit of software to generate content for FollowLiker so I think I will be able to have more main accounts with help from it.

    My short term goals are developing the app and publishing it. I'm going to give myself 2 weeks to achieve this and am going to pay for some features to boost the app.

    I didn't even think about calculating the time it takes to grow an account am going to have to work out a method to scale it up to around $1500 a day when I get the accounts up to size. I'll have to do some more research into it.

    Thought I would give you guys an update midday since it's a Sunday and I want an evening off.
    - App is conceptualised and I have started to design it all, this should take around 8 more hours until I can start to code the inner working which I am going to schedule that to take 12 hours to complete.
    - I had 1 Instagram account I was manually creating a while ago that I have revived; the status at the beginning (yesterday) was: 399 Followers and its up to 444 followers via Follow Liker
    - The bot vie being working on (Follow Liker Content Creator) is now in alpha, I spent the majority of yesterday coding that as I don't want to manually create 4images a day per account (I plan on having 10 accounts setup by February).

    Just a simple update if you have any questions or want to do some JV send me a PM, I don't have enough posts to send a PM yet but when I get there I will reply to every PM I have received so far.
    Thanks Draw Alex

    Hi there, I'm also a coder and very interested in promoting apps via Instagram. I've been making some bots and web automitation tools to make my instagram accounts more auto.

    Can we chat via skype?? Skype: gikdew
    I just want to know what do you use to automate the web and some software stuff.
