    Hi guys Im new to internet marketing, learning about processes, finding niches, keyword research, landing pages, CPA..etc.

    I've seen posts here of people making outlandish amounts of money using massplanner, followliker, or other bots but i rarely see posts from the average internet marketer and the success they're having.

    I have questions for the average internet marketer here... or in other words, internet marketers who arent making $1500.00 per day.

    1. how much can a newbie realistically expect to make within the first 3 months? 6 months? i know it depends on a lot of factors so please give me a dollar range.
    2. how much have you made in your first 6 months?
    3. how much time is required by day to get all your accounts set up? Initially?
    3a. Does the time required eventually decrease at a certain point? does it increase as your accounts grow?
    4. how much of that time is creating new accounts?
    5. how many of your accounts get banned on a daily basis?
    6. do you set up accounts manually or buy pva? aged or fresh?
    7. what other tasks are required on a daily basis?

    I hope these questions aren't intrusive. Thanks for your time!

    Don't expect to earn anything in first six month of learning IM. Invest time into reading threads. Then you can answer these questions by yourself. The key to success is imo patience, persistance and creativity. Never give up and you will reach your targets. There are no shortcuts.

    1, how hard are you willing to work?
    2. $2.40 profit $XXX in the hole
    3. depends on how experienced you are and what the accounts goal is. (for me 5 mins to set up and then slowlly warm up over a long period)
    3a. yes
    4 depends on what you are doing.
    5. again this depends on what you are doing, for me in one project its a few a week and for another project its 5 accounts in the last month and a half since i started that project
    6. buy the accounts then set the, up for what i need them to do.
    7. watching over your accounts and adjusting settings.

    Everyone is different in how they work and learn, just get started and see where it takes you, but dont expect to make bank in the first 6 months or even after. it will happen when it happens.

    to much questions...i have 6 accounts that i can think of right now on FL with 20-120k followers ( all diffrent niches). I havent earned a single $$ with these accounts yet. havent even thought about it. Im doing $$ on other socal media platforms 300-500/day.

    Maybe soon i will somehow make $$ with these accs...


    They run on a daily on FL. never had issues. keep it simple. keep it like a human and u will be fine. Do it aggresive you will get banned :) simple.


    try to aim for good Eng. The key to earn on instagram is TRAFFIC and active people. without this you will earn 0.


    I see many iG people have 40´-100k followers but like 100 likes / pic? no comments and SOMEHOW they put links in BIO thinking to sell stuff for $1000 ..like wtf? haha...


    I post once a day on ALL of my accounts MANUALLY, i pick High quality stuff only. DO NOT SPAM otherwise u lose active people. I see some guys post 10 times day with barely any active people on these posts.....Think about it, you follow someone on IG that spams 5-10 posts /day... I will unfollow that guy immeditaly...


    Hope I helped u somehow :)

    EDit : my accounts have grown from 0 to 20-100k in one and a half year. some low accounts are from 1 year back etc. my oldest with good eng , 100k+ is one and a half year old.

    It all depends on how much time and resources are you willing to invest into your Instagram journey.
    I know people who've been into this for more than an year and haven't made anything yet. Meanwhile, on the other hand, there are people who have started less than 2 months ago and are already making 4 figure income from Instagram.

    The most important part is to be creative and innovative with what you're working. The methods you use to gather the audience and benefit from them, that plays a major role in your success.

    You actually asked some good questions. It can easily take a few months to earn, so far since October I have only earned a bit.

    However in 2010 when I did it, I made 4k within the first 2 months by finding a clever spam script. It just depends. As far as time, I have spent whole days just setting up accounts and finding initial content, but I do it by hand and dont use massplanner / spam.

    I can also be efficient and get plenty of posting / following done in a few minutes, so it just depends. Part of how fast you earn depends on your method, for example it can take time to build accounts.

    So. As you posted this in the Instagram section, I'm going to tell you something.

    I started back in march 2016 with instagram and it took me about 6 months to gather all the knowledge I needed, trying out, testing stuff, getting to know tricks, learning my own tactics, practicing, reading, failing, motivating. It was a though time. I wanted to quit sooo many times. Within those 6 months I gained 11k followers, which was good in my opinion, but right now I know, that it wasn't. Those 6 months were full of work, without a single return. I didn't earn a single $ in this time, but somehow, I had a feeling that instagram is my destination. 4 months later, in the beginning of 2017, I'm here to say, that I have my own network on instagram, with a total amount of ONE MILLION FOLLOWERS. The hard work payed off. While not earning a single $ in the first 6 months, I've already earned around $5k in the last 4 months, only with instagram. That's my story. And trust me, you don't even want to know what it took to achieve this. I was spending around 10 hours, EVERY SINGLE DAY, since march 2016 on instagram, or somewhere else reading about it. There are no days off.
    The crazy thing about my story is that I didn't started Instagram with the idea about earning money. For sure, you read things about earnings from other people, but it turned out to be my passion. I wasn't thinking about money in the beginning. I knew that I had to work my ass off and in the end it will pay off. It worked. And trust me, there are even better days to come. Try things out. Fail. Try again. Fail again, but never stop. I tried out so many things. Review writing for 3,5$ a text, selling on fiverr, designing logos, betting, dropshipping, ebay, and so on. But in the end the most passionate thing turned out to be the most successful one.
    By the way, I didn't invest a single $. All I invested was time, but I couldn't used it better..

    Rather than wasting time asking questions like these, you should do one thing:

    1. Work 14 hours a day


    That's it.

    I was awake for 3 consecutive days over NYE.

    Did I make any money from my work? No

    Will I? Yes. Definitely

    It's all about setting yourself up for the long term profit.

    Thanks for all your replies and please keep them coming. It really helps me (and others) to hear different perspectives and experiences in this industry. I could be wrong, but there seems to be a misconception that I favor short-cutting over hard work and long hours by asking questions. That is not the case. I'm already knowing that with this and everything else, you get out what you put in.

    I keep reading that due diligence in the beginning makes all the difference. Finding the right niche and doing keyword research are crucial to long-term success.

    You cannot put a price tag on everything. I see people making $2,000 a day with shitty ass pages that look they are done in MS front page, their secret? They are running a business. They work long hours, they test, they try things, they focus on project at a time. So my recommendation, learn to run a small business, no need to go study, just the basics, learn about online marketing, and work really hard.

    You can be successful if you really want it. Don't chase the next hot thing or process some one posted in BHW. Find your market, your niche, your customer base.

    1. 0 - 99,999,999
    2. 30k
    3. 1-2 hrs
    3a. It depends. When i look back i see a lot of time i wasted doing certain things. & u can always outsource things but i don't believe its required !
    4. probably invest a whole day into creating new accounts when i have to make new ones.
    5. maybe once every few weeks
    6. buy aged pva
    7.This changes a lot. IMO There is no accurate blueprint to be successfully making money online. No one teaching u exact steps u have to figure it out on ur own.

    accurate ! Everyone thinks u must make money everyday by the hour but setting days aside for setting up could be your greatest investment.
