    I decided once I earn enough, I'll invest it all on purchasing FL and will grow multiple accounts.
    But before I do so, I wanna be sure of how much money I'm gonna need.

    + As for FL, can I purchase the 5 account package which costs $78 and then pay $20 to upgrade to unlimited?
    + As for the VPS, can I use a free one? How resource-consuming is it? Where can I get a free or cheap and good VPS?
    + As for proxies, how many accounts do you run on each of them? Where do you recommend I buy them?
    + As for phone verification, I can buy SIM cards for $1 each in a local market. Is that cheap? My only problem is I'd have to manually replace the SIM every time I register an account, that's tedious. Also does the SIM have to match the proxy country? And how many accounts can I verify per SIM?


    THANK YOU for spending your time answering these questions!

    Fl $78
    vps $30 monthly (( fast 8gb 1gps 500gigs ))

    proxies $30 monthly ((25 virgin fast proxies))

    each double verified account is $2

    capture service $20 month (( 5 thread unlimited capture))

    about $160 startup maybe more with more accounts

    $80 monthly fees for each month

    your need a verified Paypal account, or debt card / credit card with

    I recommend massplanner, ~10$ a month instead of FL 78. :)

    rest was already stated pretty accurate.
    Except normal PVA accounts you can get at a rate of around 15-50$ per 100 accounts.

    Not that much, I started with less then $80

    If FL is $78 for 5 accounts, then you need 5 accounts if you buy them that will cost you $5 (and if you want to make them your self again $5 as you mentioned that sim is $1 )

    If you are planing each account to have its own dedicated proxy (don't go for shared) it will cost you probably $10 because you can my 10 min. As for hosting you don't need strong configuration you can find a $15 VPS or maybe less that will be more then enough for 5 accounts.

    -fl $78
    -acc $5 (or less)
    -Proxies $10
    -vps $15

    first month expenses will be $108 and requiring $25/m

    I really want to bootstrap as you so I started with:

    Follow liker: $100
    VPS: I'm using it on my macbook.
    Proxy: $6

    Accounts: 4 on my local ip and 4 on my 4 proxy.

    Restuls: 7 accounts with 5k follower each. 1 account grow to 90k


    Total investment: $100 + $6 monthly.

    Now I want to scale so already bought proxies and today will buy vps and new follow liker license.

    What I did was:

    bought 100 FB and 100 Twitter for around 50$ (all in all).
    spent 76$ on VPS for 3 months with 8GB RAM (promotion, 25$ per month)
    spent around 80$ for massplanner (nearly all modules).
    That is one time fee of 206$
    Then two months massplanner = 20$
    three months proxies (I got 25, so you can easily setup 50-100 Accounts of each FB and Twitter), cost around 35$ x 3 = 105$

    All in all for 3 months and 50-100 accounts
    =331$
    (one time 130, monthly ~70$)

    server is stable enough to run other programs next to it.

    you can invest a bit more and get better accounts (profiled, specific pics, locations etc) to save time (and probably money). cost would increase by around 2$ per account.

    Some people offer more for a lot less so I guess it also depends on who buy buy all these things from. However, each month you'll spend between 200-300$. And if you're lucky enough, you can even spend less than 200.

    Has nothing to do with luck. If you spend 200 a month, for that, I can easily run 200+ accounts in each social network. More likely more.

    the RAM will never be used, but the CPU. Rather get dedicated to get more CPU power. and get NEW good Xeon E5 (not E3 and/or old ones)
