    Okay so much like a lot of other people I've decided to jump on the IG and CPA bandwagon! I actually started this a couple of days ago but decided to make a thread both to keep a record of my progress and to hopefully gain tips/advice from more experienced members here.

    Where I'm at Currently
    I created 3 Instagram accounts and signed up to OGAds on the 12th of October. I used Instagress to automatically like and follow on those accounts and added links after about a day. I should've waited longer to warm them up as 1 is perm banned and another is stuck on phone verification (they never send texts even if a fresh number is used). I have made a grand total of $1.95!!! so far.

    I have bought an Instagram proxy for a month and used that to create 4 new accounts that I started warming up the other day. Two of those have already been banned (1 had a profile picture the other was totally blank) - this is probably due to not letting them age at all.

    So I currently have 1 account with a link up and running, 1 account that is stuck on phone verification and then 2 which are being warmed up still.

    The Plan
    I've been using Instagress currently as they give you 3 days free time for each account, however I intend to get the free amazon vps and start using massplanner on that. Once I have that set up I will probably buy another Instagram proxy and make some accounts which I will just leave for a few days to a week before warming them up.

    I currently have 2 niches to use so plan to use those until I have a few accounts on each and then start to branch out.

    Let's hope I can make some money from this!

    Good luck, that's not a bad start $ wise.

    You might want to hold off for a few weeks before you start putting links on the bios and just ramp up slowly. Instagram is really tightening up on it's SPAM filters.

    Yeah thats what I'm going to try and do, create some accounts and just leave them or do just a very small amounts of likes and follows for a week or two.

    Thanks!

    Okay so I got no clicks yesterday </3 I was out for the evening/night so only checked this morning, seems my instagress account has been banned or something as when I try to log in it says my account is limited. But I set up a free VPS yesterday and planned on using massplanner soon anyway so I've just been setting that up. Will probably buy another proxy today and make a few accounts and just leave them for a few days.

    Edit: Being the dumbass I am I added a link which was from an account that got banned to a new one and it got insta banned :) Currently 2 accounts running with links.

    Thanks!
    I've added you.

    Okay so for an update, 1 of the accounts I was running got banned so I now have just 1 account running, I bought a new proxy and have made 2 new accounts on that which I'm going to leave for a few days before extensively warming them up. Didn't get any clicks yesterday because of various screw ups.
    I also found two of my old twitter accounts from 2012 so have given them both links and set them up to follow, got 1 of my leads from there.

    Here's todays results so far (3/3):

    [​IMG]

    Revenue: $2.65
    Expenditure: $26.35
    Profit: -$23.70


    Edit: Just after I posted this got another click and conversion for $0.40
