I have a bunch of aged IG accounts...

    ...and I would like to know how exactly to use them and reap a lot of $.

    Simple question, right? :)

    Anyway, last night I have found a lot of accounts I have created back in 2012.
    Totally forgot about them and haven't tried to do anything with IG since then.

    Actually, I did, but my partner covered most of the work and we were not growing big accounts.

    From time to time I read here something about Instagram methods, but now when I have those accounts my plan is to use them as soon as possible.

    I know that there's a lot of threads about different methods, but still, I would like someone successful on Instagram to tell me how to...

    ...grow my 'brand' account
    (with the aim to send as much visitors as possible to my website every single day).

    I have something like a 'news' blog in a huge niche and my idea is to grow IG account related to that blog.

    How to do that and gain as many followers as possible in a relatively quick period of time (I would be happy to have 500k followers by the end of the year on that main account).
    Btw. content on that account is unique and people already like it.

    My primary goal is to drive visitors from IG to my blog either from that main account or in any other possible way.

    I have accounts, I will get a bot and proxies (btw. how many proxies should I use per 1 account)?


    ** My idea was to take, for an example, 300 accounts and in their bio put some short CTA and link to my main IG account. Then, I would just follow people who follow big accounts in my niche.
    I'm pretty sure this idea has some flaws, and I would appreciate the input.
    **


    ---

    Since I have a lot of accounts I can create some other system for making money with them besides above-mentioned plan.

    What to do?

    Should I take 50-100 accounts and just post some comments, like pictures with some hashtags, or just follow targeted people and put an affiliate link in a bio of every account?

    I would like to spend less than one hour per day on this process.


    ---

    I see that some people are growing big accounts and selling them.
    Is that some route I should consider?

    Although, I would like something that's automated as much as possible.


    I would really appreciate feedback from people who already have success with Instagram, and in return, I can later share all important details in this "journey".

    Sure, the idea is good for starters... But many people do that, so, try to put a twist on it :)
    Also, it's a bit risky because IG is getting more strict when it comes to weird activity...

    Good luck

    Thanks for reply.
    Well, that's one of the reasons I ask here... To avoid that 'weird activity' :)

    1 acc/1 Proxy is the best or else you will regret losing account having +10k follower.

    300 accs is a lot of fire power..

    That certainly won't be the case, especially in the beginning. As it seems you're quite new to IG, you'll have to spend some time reading and testing (as w/ pretty much any platform/ method) or you'll drown fast.
    Yeahh they're many dif ways to monetize so I guess you'll just have to choose which one(s) sound(s) best to you.

    As for the blog redirect thing, it can be done. As I assume you're trying to build a credible 'brand', you'll just have to make the accounts look less spam like.
    I've done something similar in the past, where I had each account pose as an employee or something, helping to promote the main account.

    And in all, if you decided not to use all the accs for whatever reason, they should be able to sell for at least $2 a piece.

    This is a super noob question but I am fairly new to instagram and keep seeing the word 1 proxy per account. What's a proxy? An automated bot? Thanks for answering such a dumb question lol

    Yeah, I could prepare more than 300 for this project, but I'm starting with just 100 in the first 10-15 days.

    Yes, I'm new to IG, at least in this way. I'm using it personally since 2012. but never tried to gain anything from it.
    Stupid.
    Now I know that.

    You say "there are many ways to monetize"... What's your best suggestion to do with, let's say 100 accounts that I will not use for promoting my brand?
    Goal: to earn $100 daily from 100 accounts.
    (btw I can outsource some of the things so that 1 hour per day could be achieved under one month)

    And yes, you are right.
    I want to use most of them to promote my credible website/brand.
    There are a few strategies I have written down and I'm slowly starting to test all of them for this specific situation.

    And lastly, I doubt I would ever sell these accounts. They are much more valuable to me than $2 per piece and I have seen that some sellers are selling them for $5-$7 :)

    Great reply and I appreciate it.

    I would go with the aff link in the bio but make sure you cloak it

    Driving traffic to a blog through insta is hard work if your after Adsense earnings, If your selling products on your blog different story

    depends if you want to go long term or make some quick short term cash

    "What is a Proxy Server?
    As the name implies, a proxy server is an intermediary between your PC or device and the Internet. This server makes requests to websites, servers and services on the Internet for you.

    Let's assume that you are at work, using a web browser to visit 7tutorials.com and your browser is set to use a proxy server.

    After you type www.google.com, the request is sent to the proxy server. The server then sends the request to the server where our website is hosted. The homepage of our website is returned to the proxy server which, in turn, returns it to you."

    its useful because if one account gets banned, the other one wont based on IP/device etc.

    Please, next time use search engines to find your answer.
    It's faster and you will not spam threads with unnecessary questions.

    I would do some affiliating. IG is really cracking down on Blackhat methods lately, so WH will save you a lot of time, stress and accs.
    Clickbank, Jvzoo, finding services with their own program etc.
    Many say IG doesn't like affiliate links, but I haven't had any problems, even when direct linking (with bitly).

    If you want to go CPA, then at least keep it WH - Non-incentive works great, and if incentive, then actually give them something (ebook, link, etc)
    AdWorkMedia (easiest to be accepted) , Peerfly, Maxbounty, etc

    Good luck!

    It will take you time to understood the IG automation game. Start slow. 100accounts it is too much to handle for a beginer.
    Explore hashtags in your niche and look what they are doing.
