    Intro
    Hello guys, this will be my first attempt at IM and decided to share it on here because I'm exited and I have nobody to talk to about this stuff. Other then earning a few hundred dollars from Youtube adsense I have no real experience with IM. I'm 20 y/o and when my next year of university starts I want to be able to move out and get an apartment near my uni. To realize this I need about 400 more dollars per month, hence my goal. For the past week I've been doing a lot of research on BHW and I've come up with a business plan that I think could really work.

    Method
    I bought the Followliker 5 account license so I'm going to be growing 5 Instagram accounts. Once I hit a number of followers that I'm satisfied with. I'll be launching a Shopify store from where I will be drop-shipping cheap items from AliExpress, so I'll be making most of my money from the shipping costs. I'm thinking about earning $4/8 dollar profit per item.

    Now I'm doing this with 2 twists, one is on the niches and the other one on the web-shop part. I'll be keeping these twists secret for now. but they're 2 methods that I really haven't read about and I got really exited when I came up with them, I think a lot of money can be made using these techniques.

    Goal
    I want to make $400 a month and I'm estimating about $5 profit per sale. This means I'll need 80 sales a month spread over 5 accounts. This translates to 2.7 sales a day and I think this should be very doable and realistic. I can see this earning way more money but I decided to place my goal at the amount that I actually need. If I find this method working well I'll upgrade my FL license to unlimited and start doing it with way more Instagram accounts.

    Progress
    I'll post weekly reports right here, and daily ones below this thread.

    I'm currently in day 4 and here's what I got so far:

    Account 1(created day 1):
    Followers: 355, Following: 970

    Account 2(created day 3):
    Followers: 67, Following: 410

    I got both accounts automated with pictures for the next 2 months.
    I'm currently doing research on how to use proxy's for account creation, bio changes, etc..
    I'll get one proxy to run the remaining 3 accounts from. I hope to get this all set up before the end of week 1.

    Thanks for reading :), I'm sorry if some of the grammar's off, English isn't my first language. This is also my first post on BHW so feel free to follow this thread if you're interested.

    I wish you good luck OP, just my opinion : Don't automate posts and try to gain a relation with your followers manually.

    The thing about dropshopping is that when you order from sites like aliexpress, most of their products have free shipping worldwide. I'll charge $1 product price + $6 shipping for a 2$ product on my webshop. But since I dropship the shipping doesnt cost me anything. So I would make a $5 profit in that case

    Progess: I just found out the thread can't be edited so I'll just post updates on here. I bought an instagram proxy and set up the other 3 accounts through the windows app InstaPic. I now have 5 accounts 100% automated. I'm still experimenting with FL settings to see what works best. Now that I have the instagram part set up I'm gonna call this the end of week 1. I'll probably post an update every week on the stats of the accounts. Since it's pretty much a waiting game for me now until I get enough followers to monetize, If you have any suggestions to expand my project they are more then welcome :)

    week 1
    account 1 - followers: 505 | following: 1087
    account 2 - followers: 109 | following: 712
    account 3 - followers: 000 | following: 0
    account 4 - followers: 000 | following: 0
    account 5 - followers: 000 | following: 0

    Careful with the follow/unfollow limit. For a fresh account, it's always better to keep it at a slow and steady pace. You dont want your account to get banned when it is not even 1 month old!

    Yeah I read a lot of storys where unfollows got accounts banned quickly. Currently doing 60-100 unfollows a day. I dont really feel the need to increase this until my accounts start to follow over 5k people

    How would you deal for the receipt? They will receive a box from ali express since it will be coming from them. They will see the original prize?

    I have done 250-300 unfollow per day with no problem. Probably the delay in between that you should pay attention with.

    As far as I'm aware aliexpress doesnt add receipts. This has been the case for the items that I ordered, and I couldn't find anything about it online. A lot of people dropship from them so I'm assuming it's allright

    Have you decide what you are going to sell ?
    What kind of accounts you are scraping and following ? If you are adding images to your profiles now or you will add when you will start promoting products ?
    Best of luck mate :)

    Following. Good luck Op. Just started doing the same thing. Using one IG account, tho. No proxies. No automation (looking to buy FL or Instadub, tho).
