Hello guys ! I'm new here, have been reading some threads here and there and have noticed that the instagram journeys are relatively successful if you take your time and not put the accounts to 50k follow/day after a week Well, what brought me to the IM, my education has nothing to do with IM nor with computers. I'm a freshly graduated 23 y o civil engineer. But before i was always looking for computers stuff, first i wanted to be a hacker, then wanted to own a website for buzz videos, then wanted to make mobile apps, but each journey ended as soon as the exam session started. And now that i graduated, no job found so far ( i'm kind of happy cuz it let me discover the IM world ! lol ), i took my time to read through and choose the right method for me. But why the last iPhone Plus? Well it was a random kind of possible to reach target. I have been to one store here and they said an iPhone 7 Plus 128Go costs like $1100 ( i'm not in the US ). I said yeah maybe get one, and as everybody was going "XXXX journey to $$/day", i needed to change lol. Maybe after getting the iPhone i'll set the new goal as an iphone/month . Then why Instagram ? Well, quick answer : because Massplanner ! I'm a newbie in IM. This can be automated, means i can fixe all the settings and let the accounts grow while i do something else My tight budget allows me to do this. What i am planning on doing : I have bought a 1 month plan Massplanner, for now it is running only 1 account with no proxy as i haven't yet bought proxies I will grow account that i will make manually ( following this method , thank you @Cryogenesis ), will go easy on it, like real easy : Setting a profil picture + 5 pictures the first day and following like 40-50 users, next day nothing Adding pictures : adding a picture everyday for 1 week, 2/day for a week, i increase 1/day/week until i get to 4/5 posts/day, i should keep skiping some days. Following 100/day and increasing 10 day, how much i should set as a max follow/day ? Liking 100/day and increasing 15/day, how much i should set as a max likes/day ? Buying Proxies ! Well as i am on a tight budget, i thought of going for the proxymillion as they offer 25 proxies for 19 bucks. Have seen most guys using SSLprivateproxies and Highproxies. So it's 25 from Proxymillion or 5 from SSLproIivateproxies. I will have 3 accounts/proxy in case i get 5 proxies I will have 1/2 accounts / proxy in case i get the 25. To monetize the accounts, i really don't know what i'll do for now, i'm thinking of CPA Offers/Advertising items from my shopify store/Shoutouts. Any suggestions ? As the accounts niches will be decided depending on the way i'll monetize them. What i have done so far : Set 1 account in massplanner, i had already started warming it up manually on my phone for a frew days, and now it has 135 followers/ 404 followings. It was running the whole day, didn't get an increase in the followers, but will let that run for more. So i'd love to hear your massplanner settings! Here are mine : Follow Likes Have found some accounts for scrapping the content, and will change the MD5 of all of the pictures/videos before setting them in the folders. I know this journey - with tight budget - will be a kind of long. I think i wil be able to pay for the massplanner&proxies fees every month. I'll keep updating everyday so i don't get bored. The question are in orange Sami.
