    Hello guys, like many people out here I have also joined the IG+OGads bandwagon. I must thank @Cryogenesis who's post inspired me a lot. I am currently following his method and trying my best to scale it as much as possible.

    Accounts:
    I started instagram journey about a month ago and so far have more than 50 accounts. Some are 2 months old PVA accounts and some are barely 1 week old NON PVAs. I have been buying accounts from multiple sources to test how long they survive. The latest accounts are mostly Non PVA and I phone verify them myself. Have lost 5 accounts so far, but no mass bans.

    Proxy:
    Next, I am using custom proxies which have datacenter IPs. Some proxies have 1 account running on them and others have 3 accounts per proxy. This is again to test and experience how my method is working out. I believe my own experience will help me scale this method much better in future which is why I am trying various tactics.

    Bot:
    I am using Massplanner to follow and like. Some old accounts have accumulated more than 1k followers as of now. These old accounts regularly post 3-5 images and I am not using them at the moment for CPA. The rest are new (warmed up) accounts (3 accounts per proxy) following 400 per day and liking less than 50 and posting no content.

    OGads:
    Now coming to CPA. I have started putting links and clickbait bio text in about 20 accounts. These are shortened bitly links which lead to my self hosted landing pages on web2.0s and then from there they redirect the users to OGads content locker.

    Stats:

    [​IMG]

    This is the current situation, barely 2 conversions and few clicks. I have put the links on 25 accounts from Sat,17th Sep. I feel like there is something wrong with my targeting settings. I have created a list of accounts relevant to the OGads landing pages.

    Concern:
    Many people are posting about getting much more clicks and converting better. I am seeking views and some advice from people with experience on targeting instagram users better, making clickbait bio, etc. Any input will be of much help.

    well done OP
    test all niches in ogads, for each niche create a web2.0 site or two(if you use blogger as web2.0 will be easy to track) depends on how many accs you have and see which niche bring visitors per day and scale it up

    Goodluck OP.

    Are you creating the landing pages yourself or using the ones supplied by OGAds?

    Thanks. Yes, I will post updates!
    Thanks. Yes I am doing similar things.
    Thanks. I am creating pre-landing pages and setting them up on web2.0s. These are simple pages with just a background image and button to proceed to the content locker.

    Me too. I was very motivated by @Cryogenesis. I thought Ogads+Instagram was just a bit.... How to say It... Easier? Hahaha. But the truth is that it is very complicated. I started my journey a few days ago, so I know your feelings: low CR, etc.
    Goodluck OP!! I Will try doing my best, so if I can, you MUST can. The most important: stay motivated (and sorry for my English, I am from Spain, where OGADS only pay 0,15-0,25 per download )

    i spent some hours doing research, can someone confirm my conclusions please:

    When i create a pre-lander using wordpress, it is already a web 2.0 page right? or i have to do something extra to make this wordpress page a web 2.0 ?

    Yes, that is a web2.0. It's just a name, all you need is to host a page before you redirect your traffic to the content locker from OGads. It's that simple.
    I bought accounts from multiple sellers. They are all almost same and every account gets phone verification at some stage. Getting 2 PVs by the time your account has been warmed up and ready for posting links is normal these days.

    Quick Update for the followers

    Most of my accounts took hit. It seems all these precautions I was taking meant nothing to IG as the accounts started to fall one by one like house of cards. IG is on a banning spree and anything looking remotely botted or suspicious is getting the treatment. I don't know if the bans are temporary or permanent but I am not receiving any conversation in the form of email, neither am I getting to reinstate any of my accounts. So currently just sitting back and keeping a close watch on the developments while my next batch (of 120+ accounts) is getting warmed up.

    Anyone facing similar problems or having survived from such mess are requested to share there experience.

    Good luck on your journey OP.

    I am currently testing things myself. My problems are niches and conversions. Can't seem to find something that converts constantly to be worth scaling up.
    The good thing tho is I've hadn't had ban issues. It's been two weeks since I'm experimenting and only one account got hit, and that is the one I was testing more aggressive settings with it in MP. I use 6 months accounts, shared proxies from 2 different providers, 1 account per proxy. All accounts require pva and i do it online or with real sim card.

    Good luck OP, I have 20 accounts running and no problems with bans. How do you PVA your accounts?
    This may have something to do with your bans

    Where did you buy your proxies from? Buyproxies or some other provider?
    Hope you will let us know :)

    Yes, using 6 month old accounts is probably the thing that you are doing right. Most of the accounts I used were below 1 month old and some were as young as 2 weeks. I have also faced similar situation in getting clicks and conversions during the short time my accounts with links were alive. All I can say about that is, don't try to complicate the settings in Massplanner, use as much clickbait words you can in the bio and that will solve some of your problems.
    Thanks man and good luck to you too! I used smspva for my PV and yes I also think that may be the reason. But I also used non-aged accounts which is why the fatality rate is so high. I have no access to having large scale sim cards to help me verify and I could not find another smspva kind of service online.
    I did not buy proxies. I used custom made proxies developed by my partner which are basically datacenter IPs from VPS providers. I am sure proxies did not play any part in the banning spree as I have tried single accounts per IP as well as 3 accounts per IP and most of them got hit.

    Do you need to have followers before you will get clicks. Or is it enough to post your website, and do you put your website in the Website Url of massplanner?

    Mmmmm Thank you very much. I must recognize that I tried It, but my results were not good enough hahaha (I had only a few "clicks per account": 10 or 15). Although, when I tried targetting Spain and other countries, I discovered that my clicks increased a lot: 40-45 per account (15-17 conversions, but only 1,50$:(:(). Maybe that's because here, niches are not saturated or the public I was targetting was great, IDK. Do you recommend me start targetting again US? (Although having more than 4-5 conversions per account is almost impossible, I would make more money)
    Anyway, thank you and good luck to all ;);)
