    Hi David.

    1. I've started sending DMs on the first day. (I had luck with those proxies and accounts, my newly created accounts got burned pretty quick, as you can read)
    2. They are at 12 per hour / 120 per day at the moment.
    3. 7 per hours / 75 per day. The reason that's ok is that I simply won't get that many followers with that settings.

    Thank you :)

    - 0 Accounts waiting for PV
    - 0 Accounts running
    - 3900 (+451) Followers

    Note: There are only 4 accounts left from which I tried to send referral links. Well, it was my bad :D Yesterday none of my accounts were running.

    I will try to create some accounts with residential IPv4 proxies this weekend. So nothing to expect till Monday I guess.

    OK. So I started my new test. I've created about 30 accounts on my own proxy server (1 acc per /64) with PV gmail accounts. They all got burned. PV loops. So I guess I have done something wrong with my proxy server or it is just the subnet. I bought some proxies (where my other accounts are running) and they seem to be fine with gmail.

    I will keep buying those proxies for now I guess. Creating accounts on residential proxies didn't work for me. A lot of accounts got banned real quick, unfortunately...

    Will do some more tests on the bought proxies.

    Regards

    Why dont you buy accounts? And btw, u said u were sending followers to your MASTER account. Your plan is to monetize your master account and burn these ones?

    Well if I buy an account, I am not the original owner. The vendor can charge the account back, or it might be hacked. So I'll do it myself. I want to dig into the Child/Mother strategy. So I could sell services. At the moment I didn't think too much about monetizing. I just created a custom cloaker and that cloaker is running on one account. Let's see if IG recognizes it or not.

    Current status (30th September 2018):
    - 75 Accounts warming up
    - 0 Accounts waiting for PV
    - 0 Accounts running
    - 5456 (+652) Followers
    - 54599 (+7555) Followings

    I added some more accounts. Will see how it goes. GMT2 seems to be having a problem with big group blacklist. Scraping get's really really really slow. I just deleted the whole group blacklist and it went blazing fast. I might be taking the accounts into multiple groups and let them have fewer sources instead of a shit ton sources in one group.

    I will add some more accounts on the coming days. Also, I will develop my own source scraper.

    Any questions so far? I'll help if I can!

    Regards

    Current status (2nd October 2018):
    - 87 Accounts warming up
    - 0 Accounts waiting for PV
    - 0 Accounts running
    - 6971 (+1515) Followers
    - 69760 (+15161) Followings

    Notes: I created some accounts and added 6 posts right away and imported them in my bot to warm them up. For some of them I waited a day and tried to add 6 posts as well, but they got suspicious after 1 - 4 posts (after verifying them all was fine again). On one account I added everything, profiled it and I ran it for a few hours. But I forgot to close my bot, which created the account. On the evening as I closed my bot (and the Browser of the bot) the account became suspicious, but everything was OK after verifying it. So...

    Well. I did not hit my first milestone. But that is ok, I learned a lot of things during this journey so far. Burned a lot of accounts. Created a lot of accounts. Warming up a lot of accounts. I even wrote my own cloaker, which seems to do really good (not Instagram hits yet, not a single).

    This weekend I will create some more accounts. I still don't know why my own proxies didn't work. Maybe wrong configuration or a leak? Eh, whatever. I will stick to the proxies of the provider for now and will switch to another soon.

    Since my cloaking seems to work, I will maybe think of monetizing a few accounts. But I still don't know how.

    This journey is doing really good so far!

    Regards

    Notes: I think I know why my private proxies didn't work. I had misconfigured my proxy server (LOL). I will try new tests during the day.

    My cloaker didn't have any clicks from IG yet. So it seems to work.

    Notes: My new proxies seem to work. Will keep an eye on it and add more accounts this evening.

    Thinking about a way to monetize my accounts with my cloaking method. But that has no priority yet.

    Also, I have that weird issue, that my accounts in the same group keep following the same people even though I have group blacklist turned on. 8 accounts in 1 group, 3 of them followed the same people. Really annoying. Anyone knows what it could be?

    Regards

    - 10099 (+978) Followers

    Notes: My last account on which I tried to spam links earlier has been banned. I ran my cloaking test on that account because it was doomed to be banned anyways. I will run my cloaking test on new accounts later.

    Anyone who can help me with monetizing? I think I've got a good start and a good knowledge of creating accounts now and driving traffic to other accounts. But I still don't know how to put good converting links in DMs.

    Regards

    Why don't you use bio, considering you're using a cloaker? I put my links in bio without cloaker and get a lot more traffic to my sites than with DM.

    What kind of link do you put in your bio? No ban without cloaking seems pretty good. Is it a prelander?

    I have absolutely no idea about monetization. I have an ogads account but I really have no idea :D

    I use different domains for all my accounts, a few of them are .com, .net, and .org but I only use those for certain niches that I feel I need to impress the lead. The rest of them are cheap $1.99 domain's. I send them to my landing page, and then to my offer. It costs a bit, but they pay for themselves in a day or two so it's worth it. I would recommend using a free weebly, or something similar trying out different offers on different accounts until you find the ones that work for you, and then once you see they're working consistently then switch them to private domains. Some people put bit.ly in front of their domains, but I find that having the domain name there more people click on the links.. I guess it comes across more trust worthy.

    When do you rename your bought accounts? After or before warmup?

    Thank you for your help. I will try to do some tests later on.

    Thank you!

    I'm sorry the provider is really cheap, If I share it here publicly the provider probably will get saturated real quick...

    I don't buy any accounts. I create them with the name I'll use them with.
