    So from my understanding I need to buy more PVA IG Accounts and PRIVATE proxies (I made the mistake of using public proxies). I'm currently botting 5 accounts on my real IP, so by that standard would I be able to bot 5 other accounts per private proxy?

    And if anyone knows of any cheap private proxies you could recommend (preferably with BHW discount?) could you please point me to the right direction.

    Thanks BHW and as always, you're all great.

    To be safe run 4 accounts per proxy. Check the sslproxies to buy good IG proxies or check the marketplace

    4 Accounts per proxy sounds good! May I ask, what are SSL proxies?

    So is it compulsory to use IG specific proxies or can you use normal private proxies?

    I would strongly recommend http://www.sslprivateproxy.com/ and select Instagram Proxies ( If thats the case ) for many reasons :

    1 - They are high quality and fresh proxies.
    2 - Have Username:password + IP Authentication System. ( Unlike some sh*** providers lack of this options )
    3 - You can refresh your proxies list once a month if you have any problem with your proxies.
    4 - Good Connection and pretty fast response. ( This is important if you are running multiple threads and scripts/softwares have lower timeouts )

    There are also other options you can go but ssl deftly the best :)

    To be honest, the prices of their IG Proxies are a little bit too much for my liking... I mean if normal private proxies work then shit i'll happily pay $30 for 20 private proxies a month, you know?

    Using "already used" proxies can be bad sometimes, and join your account to be flagged because that IP / Proxy has been used before. Usually people sell regular private proxies when they have been already "spammed" in the social networks blacklist. But ofc you can find better prices.

    A lot of normal private proxies will not work with IG, because they will be flagged.

    Damn! Is there any way I'll be able to tell whether it has been flagged by IG? The IG exclusive ones are so damn expensive haha!

    Shit!

    You get what you pay for. Sometimes going for the expensive ones will be cheaper on the long run.

    If you don't have that much money to invest then I suggest you make money from those 5 accounts first. Then once you profit from them, use that money to buy more proxies ;)

    once there was a tool called xgram and it came with a list of recommended proxy providers for instagram which contained:
    Code:
    http://www.ipfreelyproxies.net/instagrampinterest.php
    http://www.proxy-hub.com/buy-proxy/
    http://packetflip.com/dedicated-proxies.html
    http://www.anonymous-proxies.net/
    out of these i can personally vouch for ipfreely who is a long time bhw provider (texacola), i used only his proxies for instagram

    other than that the rule of thumb for instagram what LleiG already mentioned above, if you're not sure that the proxies will work with instagram, ask before ordering

    You're absolutely right, unfortunately I'm using these other accounts to spam my main account (which is at 4.4k) and that's not enough to make money from.
    I'll have a look, thank you :)
    I've asked my potential proxy provider and he says they work with IG, so i'm being hopeful!

    I'm pretty much looking to do the exact same thing. I don't mind paying extra for proxies - I've learnt way too many times about taking cheap(er) ways out.

    Two main questions: What bot are you using? Where are you going to get your accounts from?

    Also, if you have any idea: How quickly could a main account grow from using this strategy?

    I'm planning to work up to 100 accounts using this method. Not gonna push them too close to the limit, I see no point in losing them. Anyone else had any experience with this kind of thing?
