    For the last few months I've been finalizing the design on a new bong, I have a manufacturer in China and the first shipment of inventory should arrive in less than two weeks. Therefore I figure if I can secure a decent following on Instagram in the marijuana niche, then I should be able to sell a few. I've been reading over JustChillin's journey where he manages over 25 accounts and I'm going to try to replicate that with 10 accounts. If it's working smoothly I may increase the # of accounts.

    So far I've:


    • Purchased a Windows VPN
    • Purchased FollowLiker
    • Purchased IgersLike
    • Purchased 5 Virgin Instagram Proxies

    Today I created 5 accounts with 5 different emails on 5 different Proxy IP's through IgersLike. I'm going to wait a few days and then I'll create another 5 accounts, two per ip.

    Once I've got a couple pictures on all 10 accounts, I'll add each account to FollowLiker and follow 200/300 each day to warm up, gradually increasing the daily follow and eventually liking/commenting as well. The plan is to follow up to 7500 and then unfollow to 0. Rinse and repeat.

    My Goal is 100,000 Followers by July, I think I can manage that. I might buy some shout-outs as well, we'll see.

    Current Accounts: 3/22/16

    Main Account: 3500
    Account 1:0
    Account 2:0
    Account 3:0
    Account 4:0
    Account 5:0

    Right now I'm setting up each account with pictures and I'm trying to figure out how to schedule posts in IgersLike. I'm worried about the phone verification, but if it comes to that I'll go buy 10 sim cards. Thanks for following.

    I've been testing out IgersLike, it's awesome for automating image postings. I'm not sure I have figured out how to mass upload quickly, but I have learned how to mass upload. So tonight, I'm going to spend the next few hours looking for images while setting up each of the 5 current accounts with 2 images everyday for the next 2 weeks.

    I think the trick with automating image posting on IgersLike is to have 1 image folder with all your images, and then an image folder for each instagram account your managing. After a while, you'll have hundreds of photos that you can rotate through accounts, like a library.

    Good luck on your journey! I'll be following this to see how Followliker perform (thinking of buying it). You have a great plan right there.

    So far so good. In total I've got seven accounts, five of which are on a proxy, the other two are aged/verified and are on my normal ip. I changed two accounts names after setting them up, and for some reason I couldn't get them to work on FollowLiker. They ultimately received a temporary ban, so I'm gonna let those cool off for a few days before I try again.

    I'm going to let FollowLiker run for a few days on the accounts I have set up before I create another instagram account on each of the five IP's.

    So far so good. I need to figure out the optimum settings on followliker, and I haven't set up automatic pictures for every account yet, but the process is easy enough. I'm going to add another 2 accounts tonight, totaling 8 not counting the two temporary bans that I have sitting. I think I'm gonna stop at 10 or 15 accounts.

    Set up a few more accounts, I've got my full 10. After this post, I'm gonna set up scheduled posts for each account using IgersLike. I still haven't had to phone verify any of my accounts, so I'm not sure if that's odd or not. Anyway, I'm gonna try and do at least 1 upload a day per account, at most 3. Hopefully I can figure out some way to schedule images quicker. Either way, this is definitely quicker than raising 1 account. That's why I might increase the # of accounts to 15, I'm just not sure I can keep up them all.

    1. I make each account centered around a theme in a niche.
    2. Google, Instagram. There's a program that will make it acceptable for Instagram. Google it.

    Goodluck on your journey! Although I've read some journies here where most of their accounts get banned with FollowLiker. I suggest using MP instead.

    I don't think they had a good set up. Proxy's and mild settings are important in the beginning, I think a lot of people are too anxious and think they can throw 8 accounts on one ip and think they'll be ok.

    Everything seems to be moving along nicely, so I'm planning to add another 5-10 accounts. I went ahead a purchased some t-mobile prepaid sim cards, but I couldn't figure out which cards to use so I ended up buying 3 $10 ones. Obviously there are better, less expensive options out there, but for now it's a good safeguard incase I have to phone verffy some accounts (I haven't had to so far).

    1 account got banned. IgersLike kept posting pictures without any captions, and I started it off with 500+ follows a day, both of these together probably raised some flags because it was such a new account. I noticed something was wrong, but I couldn't figure out how to fix it, and I kind of wanted to see what would happen. The good news is that it was my worst performing account, so good riddance.

    I reinstated those 2 accounts from the beginning of the thread that messed up upon set-up. So now I'm at 11 accounts. I purchased another 5 proxies and also 100 PVA Gmail accounts. Once the email accounts are sent my way I plan to start another 10 accounts.

    I think the best way to manage multiple accounts is to set group phrases as well as duplicate accounts. So while I'll be adding another 10 accounts, I plan to really only add another 5, each account will have a copy with the same pictures uploaded at a different time.

    Another HUGE game changer is that I'm now shipping the bongs through sea freight, rather than air, which reduces the per unit price from around $200 to a little over $50, not including customs costs. Talk about a huge deal.

    A little bit lower daily follwers this time, but not only did I lose an account of (~300), I also paused the account that shared the same i.p. So all in all, a good harvest for today. Excited to add some new accounts, I'll be at 10,000 in no time at all.

    Good progress so far. Will you be making an ecommerce website with your 1 item listed on there?

    Still haven't gotten the emails yet, and one account was password reset so I'm gonna let it sit for a day. Otherwise doing well.

    Unfortunately I had one of my top performing accounts banned last night, as well as another account require a password reset that has already been reset once. I'm not sure if a ban is permanent or only temporary, not sure how to check.

    I haven't phone verified my accounts yet, but I haven't gotten a prompt asking for one. Settings are around 300-500 follows/day for most accounts, maybe I need to warm up with a lower setting at first.

    I got the emails last night, so I'll be adding another 5 accounts today. When my sims arrive, hopefully I'll be able to verify some accounts and make them less ban-worthy. I was hoping to reach 10k my Wednesday, that may or may not happen now.
