    Sup people! I've started a journey way in the past but didn't complete it. I've been reading for quite a while now. I've been implementing tons of 'methods', made a few pennies here and there but nothing major. Blablabla we know the drill. It's time to get serious and go big. I got some money to invest from other methods but I'm going to try it without spending tons of it. Let's get too it shall we?

    The method:

    Before I start I want to give credits too Franklin who is a boss and who got me into this with his thread/method you can check it out here. Although this isn't exactly the same method he did gave me the inspiration for this.

    The idea is basically to
    1. Build a BIG (automated) IG audience.
    2. Start a webshop with Shopify.
    3. Promote products.
    Damn it looks so easy when I write it down like that lols.

    Please note: I'm focussing on a niche with a very passionated audience.

    Step-by-step, a little more detailed:

    1. Build 10-20 IG accounts to start off with
    I'm going to build 10-20 IG accounts. I already got my feet wet with 2 accounts which have 2.5k total followers in 1 week time. For these accounts I have paid a 30-day time package using Instagress (1st mistake made lols), it was later that I found out about FollowLiker which I think is 10x times better because, first of all, it's an one time payment, so no monthly subscription shit. Secondly it allows it's user to add unlimited accounts and that's exactly what I'll be needing for this project. Furthermore FollowLiker also allows to schedule posts and that's awesome because I'll be running a lot of accounts in the future so that's a must. I will be reading and watching tutorials on how to use it tonight. I will be buying it tomorrow.

    In theorie; 10 accounts averaging 1k followers a week will increase my total followers count by 10k a week. Once I hit a total of 50k followers I will start promoting products. I expect to hit that number in 1 ~ 1,5 month time.

    2. Build a Shopify shop and add products
    I'm currently finishing the shop. The design is finished I only need to tweak the 'About us' page and I need to figure out IF and HOW to implement a contact form so that users can get in contact with me. I've also added 1 product but I will be adding 6 or 7 more to start off with. The products are from AliExpress. The shop will be finished before Friday it's a deadline I've set for myself.

    3. Promote the *&!$@ out of the products to all the IG accounts, cash in.

    The goal:
    As mentioned in the title I want to earn at least $5k a month. Is it realistic? I think so. Will it be easy? Definitely not. We'll see.
    $5k a month/30days = $166 per day
    I'm aiming for a minimum of $4 profit per product (including all the costs of Shopify etc).
    So $166 per day/$4 per product = 41,5 sales per day = 42 sales
    So I've achieved my goal once I make 42 sales a day.

    What I've done already:
    - Built 2 IG accounts and grew them to 2,5k followers
    - Made the shop and designed it, only needs tweaking
    - Wasted money on Instagress
    - Contacted 3 bigger IG accounts (100k+ followers) who will be promoting my products until my accounts are fully grown.

    What needs to be done:
    - Build 8 more IG accounts
    - Read into - and finally get FollowLiker
    - Add more products to the shop
    - Find more big IG accounts to promote products until my accounts are grown

    Money:
    Spent: $49
    $20 on Instagress and $29 on Shopify
    Earned: $0

    Please help me with:
    - How do I go about creating 10 or more IG accounts? I've built my current 2 accounts with my laptop and posted with my mobile phone but how does one go in creating 10 or more IG accounts. I mean do I have to get proxies or not?
    - General feedback or improvements


    I'll be updating as much as possible. Any feedback is appreciated!

    If you want to create a lot of accounts, you'll have to use proxies. It's way too risky to create and use all of them on one IP address.

    Thank you very much! Yes I do dropshipping. Chose a niche, made a list of products from Aliexpress, upload images to the website and promote.

    Thank you very much sir!

    Thank you man! I will keep updating :)

    Thanks buddy!

    I will man and good luck with your clothing product!

    Yes probably I will be looking into this tonight.

    I know Instagress sux.. That why I noted in the post that the 1st mistake was made. About massplanner, I'm currently moving towards FollowLiker because it's not subscription based and for the time being I will only build up 10 accounts to get my feet wet. When I'm all settled and ready to build up more accounts I'll probably test the waters with MP. Thanks for the advice though!

    And amazing!! I'm gonna read you're method straight away and will definitely be implementing.

    Thanks man! :)

    How will you add the same domain to 10 different IG accounts? I did that before and got banned

    What do you mean with domain? Do you mean the link to my website in the description? I don't know if that's a problem if all the 10 of the accounts link to the same website. If that is a problem I'll just buy a few domains and redirect those domains to my website.

    If you mean how do I create 10 different IG accounts on the same IP adress without getting banned you should read the post that Cryogenesis made (look in the reply above yours) and read that. That's the way to go to create multiple accounts without getting banned.

    Good luck with this.

    How are you going to get traffic from IG to your landing pages - through your profile?

    Thank you! I'm going to post product images and tell the people they can find the product in the description of my IG profile. Inside the post I will be saying that the product is on a discount for 2/3 days only. I will post once a week per account to keep the account from being too spammy. :)

    Just to clarify.. you are drop shipping and not selling your own products?

    Good luck!

    Yes I'm drop shipping. I get an order through Shopify than manually order the product on AliExpress and AliExpress sends the product to my customers' address. I was thinking of selling my own products through spreadshirt or another supplier of custom products but the margins are just to low. So I decided to walk the drop shipping way.

    And thank you!

    I mean the link to your website. Yeah, you def. need different domains and redirect them else you will get banned.

    Good luck with your journey :)

    Good luck! I'm doing the same with IG and FB.
    With a little work and some investement you can take it to more than 10K$.


    Tips:
    - You can use 5 accounts with 1 IP. get more proxies and Aim for more than 10 accounts (some of them will be banned sadly)
    - Add products with free shipping(I guess this is what you are doing) but add also to your shop more products ( higher price , you will be amazed how much visitors will buy them).
    - DON'T FORGET TO TRACK !!!!!!

    Good luch !
