Hi Everyone! I've been lurking the forums for a good 6 months now and have learnt a huge amount about IM from this community. It's time for me to give back and that is exactly what this journey thread is going to be used for, helping others out by providing updates and answering as many questions as I can. Shoutout to JustChillin for the inspiration for documenting this journey. The Game Plan I have been running this plan for about 3 months now... Use an army of accounts, all of which are in the same niche, to promote 1 authority account containing a link to my website. The website will contain affiliate products to begin with but I would like to eventually develop my own range of products to be sold. Each of my army accounts will give people the opportunity to submit their own pictures and I will use this to capture their email address. I will also be using content lockers on my website from OgMobi. The earnings made from this will be reinvested into shoutouts and help pay for monthly hosting + proxies. Actions so far - Purchased Follow Liker Instagram Bot (Unlimited Account License). - Purchased 10 Private Proxies from Squid Proxies. - Purchased Domain + WordPress Hosting from Godaddy for each account (was a little pricey but with all the banning that has been happening, I wanted to keep it safe and purchase 1 site per account). - Created 15 Instagram accounts. Stats so far The good thing about the army accounts is that they still have the ability to become authority accounts once they grow large enough. I also haven't started cross promoting yet so some of my army accounts are actually larger than my authority account at the moment. Army Accounts (14 in total): 142,123 followers. Authority Account: 8244 Emails: 3681 Earnings: $221.97 My Niche I hope you can respect my decision not to reveal this. I may in the future, but for now I would like to keep it secret. For those that are skimming threads trying to come up with a niche, I suggest you focus on something that you have a large interest in/are passionate about. I will do my best to update you guys as much as I can along the way. Feel free to ask any questions. Wish me luck!
