    Hey guys, about today marks the 6 month end journey on my social media journey. I'm mainly writing this to procrastinate doing a quick coding job, but I figured I'd drop by a couple tips and reviews to upcoming social media entrepreneurs. I'm by no means the best, but I've been hitting $200 days pretty common now and I had my first couple $300+ days the past week, so I mean it when I say social media is the place to be.

    You can acquire the accounts from buying or botting.

    Tips when buying accounts

    +Don't fuck with twitter, seriously. If you're looking for a solid ROI twitter is probably the worst choice you can pick. If you find a good account, first do a twitter audit and make sure it's not botted, and make sure the activity is REALLY up, not by boosting with decks or anything like that. Either way I'd just say stay away from it

    +Follower count has nothing to do with ROI, like seriously. A couple months ago I purchased my first account which was a 30k organic for $50, and now I'm at 70k and averaging 5-10k notes per picture. Shit is absolutely ridiculous and made me a lot of money. I just recently bought a 350k tumblr and the activity is so low even though it gained followers organically. If I had the choice I'd trade a solid 70k for the 350k in a heartbeat.

    +@'s really aren't that important. If you want to grow an account, don't spend $500 on the dopest @ you can find. If you want a good one for yourself, that's one thing. But I see these kids spending hundreds on @'s, then realize the account hardly grows faster then it would with any other handle. Yeah they're worth money, and if you wanna just retrade it go for it, but if you're looking to grow an authority then a handle will do you little good.

    Tips when growing accounts

    +Twitter once again, sucks. I don't have a huge twitter game, but the past 3 weeks all I've heard is complaining. The only reason twitter is good is because you can plaster the shit out of it, but you can't even do that with it anymore.

    +Quality, not quantity. I started out hand-creating, and loading each account into my bots. Guess where I'm at 6 months later? Buying accounts from some russian creation IP then switching to an american IP and instantaneously start following people is obviously gunna throw up a red flag. I just recently tried it out again on a couple networks, I had 60 out of 70 tumblrs go down over a night lmao. Just do it the right way and grow accounts, don't spam them.

    + Don't grow a single network. Seriously, ever heard "don't put all your eggs in one basket?" Sticking to a single social network is like throwing your basket through a fucking pulverizer. Anyways, your only recurring cost is $xx per month per proxies, would you rather put that to use on 3 social networks or just one?

    + Don't EVER start with too agressive settings. Just be patient about it, you won't get penalized for going to low.

    + How in gods name do you create handmade accounts? It's kind've a complicated setup, but once you get profiles setup, you just open a browser up and you're ready to go.

    • Set up a firefox profile for each proxy you have --- Name the rofile aXX, xx being the proxy number (If I had 20 proxies, my first profile would be a1, then a2,...a20)
    • Download the proxy switcher plugin for each profile.
    • Add your proxy to the plugin, clear the cookies and cache each time you want to use it
    • PRO TIP: Start the browser via terminal using: "firefox -p a(proxy number) -no-remote" The -no-remote attribute prevents your browser from making remote connections for other content types and stops you from potentially revealing your real IP address. I don't know how much this helps for every network but if you want to play it safe, I would definitely advise it.

    Recommended Services

    + Buyproxies.org - No affiliate link or nothing. I just sent them a ticket to change 30 proxies and they literally did it instantaneously. I would buy dedicated proxies and squeeze as much use out of each proxy as you possibly can.

    + Followliker vs. Rootjazz products, which to choose? I get asked this question a lot, and there's honestly not a doubt in my mind which I'd refer people to.

    Rootjazz has a threaded system which allows more precise scheduling, and 10x the control. Once you get good with it your accounts will be 10x safer, you don't have half the control with followliker. However, it is WAY more complicated, and (I think) a lot uglier. The learning curve for followliker is pretty shallow, you can get the software, figure out how to use it and get going. Rootjazz sometimes I'm still figuring shit out with it, but as for the per-ban rate it is SOO much lower because you can actually control timing on each individual action and set up multiple actions for each account. So if you're looking for something easier, go followliker. If you're looking to be a pro, get yourself familiar with rootjazz products. I've only tried those two bots, so I can't say anything about other choices.

    + OGAds, seriously these guys fucking give you landing pages and host them for you off a subdomain. I've made the majority of my money from them. If you want to signup with my affiliate id (11742) go here http://ogads.com/signmeup

    TLDR; social media is a fucking goldmine. It's not instantaneous but the long term benefits are incredible. If you aren't using it you're just losing a lot of money.

    Yes you can but not on many accounts.
    Although it's safer to use a Domain and redirect it to the LP or just host a LP and put their Content Locker on it.

    I do, but the bigger the account the bigger the risk. I have a couple custom domains that I use a little more often, I can hook you up with a subdirectory or subdomain off that if you want, I've done it for a couple people with bigger accounts, only for a few landing pages tho

    Tumblr, instagram, twitter. Tumblr was to my greatest avail by far, if you can hit accounts past the 10k mark from organic, you'll just explode 100% organically.

    No I use rootjazz for tumblr, because tumblr is by far the strictest network. You can easily float by with followliker for all 3 networks and it will be easier, but you'll get hit with much harder ban waves.

    Followliker can only setup daily actions, no precision on post time. bursts, or scheduling, also mass reblogs/follows/likes doesn't even exist.

    If I want to promote a site or something, I highlight a couple accounts, get the post permalink, click the reblog button and your good.

    Good post, and congrats to your success. I have a question about proxy. How many accounts do you use per proxy with tumblr? Does it safe to use 2 accounts per proxy?

    This is a tricky question, and theres not really an answer.
    For sure don't go over 4, but 2 is a perfect number imo. Tumblr often bans in IP waves if they catch your account, so having 3 accounts linked to a single proxy I would lose 3 nice accounts over the span of a day, it's really not a good feeling.
    Good luck man!
