    Ok, this is my first journey thread at BHW and let me mention I am not a pro, and actually not even close to being a pro. I will share a bit about my background here. I have been into IM from about 10 years now. Its been like 9 years since I have been at BHW though I wasn't much active here until now but finally I thought its time to payback to the community from what I have learnt here.

    I started my IM journey with SEO and gradually moved to SEM and made $xxx,xxx annually for a couple of years with it doing greyhat/whitehat SEM and running an agency. I have had some bad time in past few years when I health issues most of the time and now I am over with all the health issues but at the same time me know-to about SEM is outdated too. Finally I have taken up instagram accounts as my full time career for next 1 year where I will be working on creating and running 50,000 IG accounts. Yes its not 500, not 5000 but 50,000 IG accounts. There are people who're even doing 500,000 accounts successfully.

    While doing the same I will be sharing most part of my journey here. If in case anyone is onto a similar journey and seeks help, I will try to answer all your questions and for indepth conversation feel free to reply to this thread with your query.

    I started my journey for IG about 2 months ago and have been working 16 hours a day rigorously to understand how IG works. In the meantime I have created 100's of accounts and got them suspended.

    ACCOUNTS

    I have been creating my IG accounts manually by myself but in near future I plan to either source them from a vendor or will hire a freelancer to build a good account creation bot for me. I did try the bots already out there but they din't work well for me since I have my own way of creating accounts so they don't end up getting suspended right after creation or with action blocks.

    PV

    I already have multiple private cheap sources for Phone verification but I am always looking out for more options. Until few days ago I have been get all my phone verifications done from smspva and getsmscode.

    PROXIES

    Earlier I have been working on shared proxies but finally on dedicated proxies each from different subnets so from past 2 weeks I have about 125 accounts working day and night with no issues at all. No more follow blocks/no shadowbans, no bans, no suspensions.

    BOT

    For the botting part by far I have tested three tools

    1.) Followliker - I loved most things about this bot except two, it doesn't have inbuilt phone verification module and its flc feature is not effective since it does follows, likes and comments seperately. These are the most important features for me atleast.

    2.) GMT2 - I have been using this tool from past 2 weeks and I love almost everything about it. The only issue I face is that it crashes couple of times a day but the support team is working with me all the time to fix the issue and I highly appreciate that, also the same thing makes me love this tool even more.

    3.) Jarvee - No complaints against jarvee except one - I cannot use it for farming IG, its just not for farming. Reason - Price.

    MILESTONES

    My goal here is to achieve 50,000 accounts in next 1 year with atleast $0.1 per account everyday. Many people might say why not $1 or $0.50 or $3 like others, the answer is i don't want to set expectations high from each account for now. Since I am going to work on bulk, I feel its enough to stick with setting low expectations and getting higher gains.

    Milestone 1 - 1000 accounts by May 30, 2018
    Milestone 2 - 5000 accounts by July 30, 2018
    Milestone 3 - 25,000 accounts by September 30, 2018
    Milestone 4 - 50,000 accounts by December 30, 2018

    SERVER

    Currently I am using t2.large from aws with 2 vCPU and 8GB RAM. This configuration is enough for handling about 1000 accounts since I will be running about 200 threads with 12 hour time window. 500 accounts from 12AM-12PM and 500 from 12PM-12AM. Already tested working with 125 threads simultaneously and it works seamlessly with under 10% CPU usage and under 20% RAM usage.

    DOMAINS

    I am still testing multiple methods of using free/paid domains and will keep posting about updates.

    MONETIZATION

    Coming on to my journey, I will be monetizing these accounts using various methods while testing them and selecting the shortlisted ones which will include

    1.) Selling SMM panel services
    2.) CPA offers
    3.) Affiliate sales
    4.) My own eCommerce/dropshipping stores
    5.) Creating paid engagement groups
    6.) Selling mass shoutouts

    There might be more that I will be trying which I can't recall as of now. But I will keep them posted here.


    Currently I have 125 accounts running with about 20,000 followers in TOTAL. All these accounts have been running from only 2 weeks except few of them which are about 1-2 months old. I am currently not monetizing either of the accounts since I plan to monetize them once they're atleast 1 month old and have gained some more audience.

    Will keep the thread updated with the progress, feel free to ask questions if my journey relates to you, also I am open for criticism, and guidance from the experts.

    Very optimist, but still doable.
    Wish you all the best! I will follow this thread carefully.

    Good luck bro!
    How you will be getting content for that much accounts? You will be doing manually, you will be paying someone or you will be using some kind of bot?

    Would like to know which people are doing 500,000 accounts successfully.

    Also Jarvee and other bots can't handle that amount of load. You need something proper

    Thank you for sharing that information.
    You said that followliker doesn't have an inbuilt phone verification module. Do you know any software that offer this feature?

    Thanks alot man. :)

    I won't be creating content for them all, 1000 accounts for each niche, I will scrape mass content and randomize for all the accounts. will be changing their metadata and filename to ensure content looks unique to IG.

    As of now I am paying approximately 10c/proxy.

    Well, the one who inspired me for this journey have about 600,000 accounts. Can't mention name for obvious reasons. And i am sure there must be more people doing it.

    I am not going to use 1 bot for all accounts. 1 bot 1 server - 1000 accounts.

    Gram Multi Tool 2 and Jarvee both does.

    I am struggling to understand how the software can do a phone verification? Is it able to do it with virtual numbers only?

    yes, sms verifications are done using virtual numbers only. If you are using real sim cards, you need hardware as well as custom software to get the phone verification part automated, which is going to be quite expensive process.

    Well not really, I once tried facedominator by the same team and i found it was quite buggy.

    I doubt 2core 8gb ram could handle 1000 accounts. But, it might be different case if you using super light bot. So, Im gonna watch this.

    Good luck!

    Well I am already using 125 threads simultaneousely and Earlier I have already tested 200 threads too. I am not going to run 1000 threads for sure. It will be 200 threads at a time and 500 accounts each divided into 2 parts 12AM-12PM and 12PM-12AM.

    It's me again... :)

    Forgot to ask - how are your going to use those accounts to reach targeted people exactly?
    At least in the beginning.

    Are you going to do standard F/U, commenting, liking or some specific combinations of few actions?
    At this moment, my biggest issue is probably that most of the people I follow don't even check out my bio. There is about 5-10% follow backs, but I don't care about that.
    Just want them to check out a bio.

    I am using traditional f/u/l with botting.

    Not everyone is going to checkout your bio but only a fraction of them. There are multiple ways of directing them towards you bio, when your account have turned atleast 1month old, start direct messaging with a thanks note and a link to your website. You can start asking your audience to checkout your bio for your offer after every 2-3 posts or shoutouts, keeping under 25% is the safe bet I believe.

    In the end, for 500k accounts, how much it will cost you? Also where are you getting 10 cents proxies?
