    Hello, I've been inspired to start my own instagram business by reading a lot of the threads in the journey section. After looking around I've had trouble finding resources to help me get started, which is why I've came here to help.

    Here's my plan:
    1. Get around 100 accounts, research different niches, decide what niches to use on my accounts.
    2. Build a bio/profile picture for each account, and also use a service (I haven't looked into what service I'll use yet, but I've heard they exist) to find pictures/videos for each niche/account. I'll probably get enough media to cover my accounts for atleast 3-6 months until I restock. (assuming I'm posting 3 times a day)
    3. Use Mass Planner to schedule uploads. Also, Mass Planner will be running bots on the accounts to help them gain followers.
    4. Wait until accounts reach a high following (maybe around 10k-50k) before I start monetizing/shoutouts.
    5. ???
    6. Profit.

    I figured using some basic math, If I have 100 accounts, they each get 50 followers a day (I think that's an underestimate compared to what other people are getting), I micro manage them for 4 years (which is how long until I graduate) then I'll collectively have 7.3 Million followers, which, atleast from what I've heard from other people's experience, gives me enough money live off comfortably, maybe even make me a millionare eventually. Now, that's if everything goes to plan. And right now, I don't see how anything could interfere with the plan, other than having accounts get blocked (which I'll be VERY careful about), or if I don't get 50 followers a day. But even If I only got 5 followers a day, thats still 730,000 followers, which I think is still enough to make a living off of. So, what I'm saying, is that this is most certainly a win-win situation, right? Seams like if this goes to plan I should be able to never work a single day of my life. Something with my calculations/estimations/assumptions may be off because this seams way to good to be true.

    Here's what I haven't worked out yet:

    1. Setting up the accounts. I think I'll just buy the accounts somewhere, or make my own accounts using bluestacks, so that's covered. But logging in/using my accounts? I've heard that I need a proxy for every 1-5 accounts I set up, and I need to log onto all my accounts with separate IP address. I honestly have no clue how to use proxies with Instagram and all the IP stuff. Can someone explain to me this?

    2. Using Mass Planner. I have no clue how to use it, I only know what it does. I need to do some research on how to make use of it while not getting my accounts blocked, and all the different strategies.

    3. Monetization. This isn't really a priority right now, I'll handle that later.

    4. Cost. How much will it cost me to maintain all my accounts? The only things I can think of right now are Mass Planner and renting Proxies, and maybe the upfront cost of buying accounts.

    5. Time. I know there's the upfront time I need to put in to get everything running, maybe .5-2 hours per account, so 50-200 hours total? After that, I'm not sure how much time it will take to maintain it. If I'm not mistaken, All I have to do is find more images/videos to restock into the upload queue, so maybe 5 hours a month?

    If someone could walk me through how I can get started with setting up all the accounts and proxy servers and working with Mass Planner, or atleast pointing me in the right direction so I can learn it myself, it would be greatly appreciated. :D

    I just started last night and im just building followers manually, I'm going to focused on 1 for now then when I get maybe 10k+ followers i'll create another one..
    Thanks for letting me know about Massplanner, i'm going to look into that.
    Also I know a service is mandatory, is that how people primarily find pictures?
    Other than asking to use someone photo? Because who knows if it's even their photo as well?
