    Hey BHW, thenwhat here. Been on the forums for quite some time now and finally want to make another journey public because this journey is something out of my comfort zone. All of the other journeys that I have tried doing were all whitehat and never came out to my liking. (I honestly would spend hours at work reading similar journeys that would make me doubt my journey :oops:)

    Before I get into my journey/method I'd like to give a little background info as to why I'm doing it.

    I live in Hawai'i and the cost of living here is pretty high. I have a daughter to support and I'm working 45-50hrs a week; I like to count commute time as working (5 hours). Anyways, my goal is to own my own house and have the freedom to be with my daughter (and girlfriend) when I want to and when they want me; no schedules to deal with, full control of my life.

    My goal is to make $1000/day but I know this will take some time so one step at a time.

    As for my method, I'd like to categorize is as grayhat. Maybe more on the blackhat side lol.
    I also tried botting two accounts but both are soft banned and got one of my other domains blocked.

    Method:

    1. Sign up for OGAds / Get approved
    2. Create one Instagram account
    3. Bot using safe settings (Using Followliker of course)
    4. Buy hosting, create a website landing page with a social locker
      • (-$60 for hosting / $25 for plugin)
    5. Redirect visitor to OGAds landing page
    6. Hope they convert
    7. Cry if they don't / Celebrate if they do
    8. Hope a friend of theirs that saw their share via social locker (Organic traffic)
    9. Repeat steps 3 to 5 :p
    10. Choose another niche and repeat steps #2-10
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Problems I'm facing

    1. I have a trip coming up, can't spend too much ($500 to maybe $750 budget)
    2. Had to create a fresh account for Instagram, other two accounts that are soft banned were the last of my aged accounts (3 years old :()
      • Will setting up my account on the same IP as other accounts that got soft banned on affect my new account?
      • Question: If I wanted to, how would I set up 100+ accounts? I know I need proxies, more domains and a good computer/vps but would I have to manually log into each account and set it up accordingly? Or would I have to use a vpn and log into a few accounts for each connection?
    3. PLEASE let me know if there's a cheaper way to create a custom landing page with a social locker OR let me know if I should drop the social locker completely and just buy multiple domains. What do you think?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Income and Expenses

    Income: $4.60 (Actually started this journey on 7-15-16)

    One-time Expenses:

    Other concerns: How should I go about with adding my link to my profile?

    Good Luck and do not forget to keep up updated! So you are only using one account for whole journey?

    Negative, I will be scaling up with different niches. I do however, plan on doing one Instagram account per domain.

    UPDATE:
    1. Today I set up a new Instagram page for my first niche, slowly starting to build it up and next week I will add a link.
    2. Also forgot I had another project sitting, same project (OGAds + Instagram) decided to apply for a landing page that matches this niche.
    Niche #1: 47 Followers / Following 6 **Will only be following pages within the same niche
    Niche #2: 8004 Followers / Following 3746 **Will only be sending likes and slowly unfollowing

    Income (7-18-16):
    (Just started running the bot for Niche #2 an hour ago)

    4 clicks / 3 conversions: $1.05

    Income: $5.65

    One-time Expenses: $85

    Profit: -$79.35

    My niche #2 is converting fairly well, this one links directly to my landing page versus my niche #1 where I have them go through a social locker.

    My overall conversion rate dropped. I'll give niche #1 a week, if the shares don't rack up from the social locker and help conversions I might return the hosting and keep the domain and link it directly to my landing page.

    Niche #1: 25% conversion rate
    Niche #2: 66.67% conversion rate

    Conversions are on point. Once you grow more you will profit a bucket load
