    Hey man good luck with your journey. I'll be following! May I ask where you source the single proxies per /64 subnet?

    Not intending to demotivate you, but you need to understand what people are saying. The track on which you are moving will lead you to getting out of the game even before you can think. Time to rephrase your strategies or just ignore my post.

    Godspeed. On a similar goal too. Now I have only 3 months to get the real business started, otherwise I'll literally starve lol. sometimes a little pressure is good too. let's drink a beer together (virtually) when this happens!

    I don't want to come across as negative but think about what others are telling, it's a big risk using poor quality accounts and ridiculously cheap proxies.

    It may or may not cause big problems down the line

    What both these users and a few others have said is good information, and it's better to take heed to wise advice than to brush of good knowledge from people who know what they're talking about.
    I'm not running thousands accounts, but I'm running a few hundred (approx 700 to date) by choice, as I want to focus on quality and high engagement over quantity and low engagement. I've been automating IG going on my 5th year in a few months, and I can surely say from experience.. that quality proxies, and quality accounts trump cheap proxies and cheap accounts any day.

    You might be able to get a start using the cheaper material, but down the line you'll run into plenty of issues... verifications, bans, and even mass bans at times. Ipv6 proxies are usable, but I wouldn't suggest them for account creation, as those accounts will be banned within 2 months if you're automating them. Datacenter proxies alone get automatically looked at as boto, since they're favored by marketers. You can pull off running your accounts on ipv6 proxies for long durations, when done correctly.. but it's something to do once you have a few months experience. I believe the advice some area trying to get across to you is, don't dump a ton of money and time into something just to end up getting all the accounts banned, and have wasted all that time and money. It's better to do it right the first time, then to jump in blind folded thinking you'll be okay.

    By all means, do what you see best.. just trying to pass on some solid advice. The journey section, is flooded with IG+cpa threads that have been abandoned and/or failed.. more of those, than ones where people have succeeded. And the reason for this is because people read other people's journeys, and assume this seems easy.. and jump in moving to fast food their own good. Yes, it's good to set your goals high.. but it's also good to set them smart and move wisely. One thing I've suggested to anyone that I helped one on one was.. start small, master that.. and once you've mastered running 25-50 accounts.. or even 10-20 accounts, then you scale up.. because by the time you've ran them for a few months, you know all the roads blocks you'll be facing along the way.

    Reading others journeys and threads, you'll never realize all the roadblocks that will come along the way, and will eventually overwhelm yourself.. and ultimately be forced to quit or end up failing. I've seen it time and time again, week after week.. and all the proof is right here in the journey sections.. dig down in there and see for yourself. Good luck though, whichever path you decide to take.

    I read about cpa and reserched a bit, there are some networks that reject you so i still dont know how i should start that off. Im about to run 5 different account in different topics/niche to see how it goes. Do you have any tips that might be useful?

    This isn't my threa, I don't want to hijack by giving out advice to things unrelated to his journey.. wouldn't be right. Besides from the few tips I mentioned in the other post, you can look up other posts I've written on the forum.. a good percentage of them are related to IG automation and marketing.

    Thank you for helping me out. The thing about doing that much in bulk early on is I can do more errors. More errors = more ways to improve. I don't really care how often I fail, in the end, I will succeed!

    Thank you as well. Well, I try to have high-quality accounts. I create them all myself. The proxies might seem cheap, but they are my own (that's why it is cheap).

    Thank you very much for your words. Those mean a lot to me! As I said above, I try to generate high-quality proxies and accounts. I will do a lot of testing and failure. But hopefully I will come out successful in the end! I don't plan on giving up, just because I burned some money or get frustrated. That is what drives me like in RL. If I can't do it, I'll just try until I can.

    Current status (23rd September 2018):
    - 87 Accounts warming up
    - 0 Accounts waiting for PV
    - 0 Accounts banned (lots of accounts burned, I'll just skip this in the future)
    - 0 Accounts running
    - 2724 (+197) Followers
    - 28394 (+4911) Followings

    Note: I have burned a lot of accounts, unfortunately. I tested my new proxy setup (these tests were on all the same /64 subnet). F/UF seem to work fine. But as soon as I upload an avatar or do a post, I'll get PVd. I think my proxies are just really bad quality. I will continue the test on dedicated /64s.

    If that ain't gonna work I'll have to use normal proxies and invest a bit more.

    Thank you guys for your interest. I really enjoy it!

    Currently, I am working on my account creation bot. Maybe someone can guide me in the right directions?

    I will work on my own Cloaker soon. It looks like I'll just have to create less accounts, which will have to earn more. But that's ok. I'll keep you guys updated!

    Regards

    Do you have any tips/tricks without spoonfeeding me? You can hit me up with DM if you want.

    Current status (24th September 2018):
    - 62 Accounts warming up
    - 0 Accounts waiting for PV
    - 0 Accounts running
    - 3010 (+286) Followers
    - 30220 (+1826) Followings

    Note: OK. Every single account I made on the /64 has been burned. PV loops. I'll just leave them. Multiple thoughts on why they have been flagged.

    1. I used the same domain for the emails (simple wildcard forwarding) -> [email protected]
    2. I created them all on the same /64 subnet.

    Next test for the future? I will create 50/50 GMAIL Accounts (with PV if needed). A half on IPv6 proxies and a half on rotating residential IPv4 proxies. I will create 100 IG Accounts on rotating residential IPv4 proxies. 25 of them will warmed up ASAP on IPv6 proxies. 65 of them will age some time (until I am sure for the future) and 10 will be used on datacenter IPv4 proxies.

    So there is a lot of work for me.

    Regards

    Glad to see you have the right mind state for the journey, I believe you'll make it as you don't seem like one to give up easily.

    As for your accounts being banned, I'm responding within the impression that you're using ipv6 proxies with the new accounts you created, right? Please correct me if I'm wrong and I'll adjust my response accordingly.

    I've moved a majority of my accounts over to mobile proxies (approx 2/3), but I still have about a 1/3 of them on ipv6 data center proxies. Although some people say they see no difference in new and old accounts.. in my experience in notice the difference. It's not how it once was where older accounts were bullet proof.. but, when I get 6mo-1yr old accounts, and warm them up for a couple weeks, I'm able to upload pictures from ipv6 with no problems(no verifications, or bans) and they're all on the same subnets (combination of 3 different subnets). I add a few new accounts in the mix (less than a month old) and warm them up for a couple weeks.. and it's almost lIke a gamble. Some will make it, and some will get banned for no reason.. so because of this I'll only use them for churn and burn accounts that I'm not expecting to last long. The only way around this (using brand new accounts and on ipv6 proxies) is to allow them to warm up for 4 - 6 weeks.. and during that warm up, I won't upload any new pictures, I just leave the ones on their that I started the account off with and run a special template I designed specifically for these accounts, which for the most part consists of running the account 4-5 days out of the week, and for approx 6-8 hours a day with only follows and a some liking. It's a slow, drawn out process.. but in the end(after the 4-6 weeks), they'll perform like my older accounts and I'm able to upload pictures whenever, and follow in the 600-700 a day range.

    Being that you're creating the accounts the same way, and running them off the same subnet.. it's leaving behind a footprint. I can understand your reason for wanting to create your own accounts and run the proxies you've made yourself.. but in a sense it's too identical, and they have algorithms to detect that. As for the email address, you're in the right direction.. I only use premium emails for all accounts(gmail, yahoo).. any of those backyard email providers IG tends to treat the accounts like possible spam accounts.

    Thank you for leaving this insightful response. Yes, I created the accounts new on IPv6 proxies and used them on the IPv6 proxies. How big are the subnets you are talking about? /48, /56 or /64? I will drive a test and post pictures on IPv6 proxies on new accounts and on a bit warmed up accounts. I think the whole process is learning by doing. Giving up is not an option for me.

    As for the emails. Yes. I think that was my mistake and that was the footprint, to be honest. In the future, I will create GMAIL accounts and if I need to PV them, that will cost me between 2 and 10 cents (yes my SMS verifications are pretty cheap). All of my IG accounts will be created on rotating residential IPv4 proxies.

    I hope I will get on the right path as the other big players and like you.

    In the meantime, I have another project regarding to cloaking. Since I am a software developer in my job, I have a bit of background in that area.


    Current status (24th September 2018):
    - 61 Accounts warming up
    - 1 Accounts waiting for PV
    - 0 Accounts running
    - 3449 (+439) Followers
    - 35534 (+5314) Followings

    Notes: I drive about 50-80 followers to a master account with 52 child accounts. Which is quite good. The child accounts are not warmed up yet.

    I DMd new followers with a simple spintax. (Hi Blabla, if you liked my content, Blabla, you'd like @blabla s content as well. Blabla. Head over and leave a follow. Blabla)

    Simple and stupid :D

    Hello,

    Thanks for speedy reply. Now I'm asking:

    1. How much time since the account creation did you wait for sending the first DMs
    2. How much followings are each acc making? Per the amount you shared, I can guess that 80 in avg?
    3. How much DMs do you sent per acc ?

    Thanks for responding,

    David .
