    Hey BHW,

    I'm starting an IG campaign today. I don't have an actual money goal set. To be honest, I would be happy to earn my investments back after 3 to 4 months. After that, I'll see what happens and how much money I can make!

    My current plan is as followed:

    - 50 aged IG accounts. I have 21 at the moment. I have 42 new IG acc's, but I'm going to let those accounts age for three months; maybe occasionally login on them to keep them alive and eventually use them. Anyway, of these 21 accounts I've been running 11 for 4 or 5 days now. They haven't been banned, like earlier new accounts that I owned.
    I bought the 10 other aged accounts today. They all needed a password reset, so I'll wait with buying another 29 and check if these acc's with pass reset don't get banned. I don't want to rush into anything. I changed the niche on the original 11 accounts and they're currently unfollowing to get a fresh start.

    - I'm using MassPlanner. I'll buy the unlimited version as soon as all goes well and I buy the other 29 accounts.

    - I have 25 private proxies. 2 accounts on every proxy.

    - Using my PC to bot the accounts. I don't really use the PC for personal use anyway. Also, it would be a waste of money to rent a VPS if I have a perfectly fine computer. I'm starting off with letting the accounts follow 150-200 a day. For aged accounts, this may seem low. I want to avoid getting banned, because getting banned is the only thing that fucks up the entire plan.

    - I programmed a tumblr scraper to scrape images of a page. 50 accounts with 2 uploads a day (please tell me if you think 2 daily uploads is on the low side) = 100 images per day. The Tumblr scraper comes in handy, because I really need the content.

    I'm keeping this journal mainly to motivate myself. I don't want to fail again. I know IM takes persistence, that's why I'm giving it yet another try after already a few fails. I feel like I've learned some things during my fails as well, so I guess it wasn't all for nothing.
    I'll keep you up to date with my follower count. I'll try to post every day! If you have any tips or questions, be sure to ask me. I'm totally open for advice.

    Thanks for reading!

    Nice, Instagram is really profitable if you invest some time and money in it.

    Hope you can make something out of it.

    150 to 200 a day. I'll do that for the first month. After that I unfollow till all accounts are at 0 again. When that's done I'll higher the follow settings. I just can't take the chance of being banned immediately.

    Through CPA and adsense at first. If I gain a decent follower base and all goes well, I'll probably switch to selling products related to what I'm promoting.

    The 20th account has 11k+ followers. It was one of the aged accounts I got. My guess is that 10k are fake and the other 1k I followed myself, so they're legit.
    Will post an update on either sunday or monday again, because I'm away for the weekend. On monday I'm buying & setting up the other 30 accounts.

    I've been following on 10 accounts, so that's satisfying. The other 9 accounts will start following as of today again. Tomorrow I'll buy another 30 aged accounts, if they're available. The site I normally buy from, is currently out of stock. I have a follow back rate of 50 - 60%. That's great IMO. Next update will be tomorrow. Edit: I'll be shutting down my PC for tonight, because massplanner is giving me an error code. My accounts are not banned and don't have a following block, so I guess the issue is on MP's side.

    Decent gain of followers. Kinda wasted right now, so no long update. Bought and worked on the remaining 30 accounts yesterday evening. Counting only 49 of 50 accounts, reason can be found in first update. The average followback rate on the accounts is still around 50%, which is incredibly high.

    Mate,
    I had found another thread there the gay earned above $100 with the following process. Believe you'll able be to do that. Already I read your plan. You wanted to upload 100 nice images. That's a better decision. It'll be mostly helpful for your plan.
    The most worst site of your journey is- you didn't estimate your goal. These may the barer of your IG journey. Please fixed it first.
    Must I'll comeback. Please keep update in a continuous way. Wish your good day. Bye....

    Increased the following per day to 250 - 300. Three of my accounts got hit with email verification, so I'm kinda nervous about the new settings. If other accounts continue to get verify by email, I'll probably lower the settings once again.
