    I have gone through many adventures throughout my stay on this forum such as amazon affiliate sites, dropshipping through fb and reddit, and much more. As my primary purpose of my recent dropshipping site was to squeeze as much money as possible, so that I can have money to throw away on different methods I want to try out, it's time to put that plan into place.

    Plan for this journey

    First of all, I won't be doing any regular updates, as those just add to my stress level since I have stuff to do everyday and I don't want this to be on top of it.

    However, I will update it with statistics, followers, sales, etc as frequently as I can to show my growth.

    Plan:

    - Get 50 accounts instagram accounts (will be purchasing 1-7 year aged ones with proxy PVA)
    - Build up a Shopify dropshipping store in the niche of my accounts
    - Once accounts get up to 5k, I'll make one promotional post of my dropshipping site like I would do with an influencer
    - Once accounts get up to 10k, another one, etc.
    - 10 accounts per niche, one store per niche. (I will be using 60 day Shopify trials)
    * Am using google cloud free VPS for the bot.

    So basically, instead of the regular OGAds + Instagram spam method, I will be trying to create a network of Instagram accounts where I can have a steady flow of sales instead of having risk of the accounts getting banned.

    I would also rather making sales of $30+ with profits of $20 or more instead of a measly $1 or so commission from my followers.

    I can also accept shoutouts from other pages and earn money through that way as well, so there is a lot of alternatives I can take with this method.

    Current Progress

    I am using GramDominator and since I have over a year in experience with it :p I know how it works. I am currently testing one account that I was provided with from the seller, to ensure that I can get reach my 600-900 follows per day without getting limited like how I am doing with some of my other accounts.

    I am currently reaching around 6k followers/month with one account of mine following 600/900 per day, so if I'm able to scale to 50 accounts and everything goes as planned (I know it won't), then I will be getting around 300k followers per month in total.

    Final Words

    Whether this works or not, I will still have satisfied my curiosity, as I have always wanted to try instagram botting on a bigger scale.

    I got some questions if you dont mind,
    -Will you be posting duplicate content on your accounts in the same niche?
    -Will the content be re-posted/scraped from other accounts?
    -How will you plan on managing 5 shopify stores and their orders?

    Truthfully, I am not a fan of dropshipping in that type of way. I believe there's too many loopholes with that whole process. The quality of the products might be an issues and the long wait times can discourage a person from buying. If they do buy and not read your shipping FAQ, they will complain via your emails asking why is the product taking soo long to come etc and a list of other issues (refunds and such). Don't get me wrong, people have been successful with it but everyone can't pull it off.

    Your customer service skills has to be on point when buyers approach you with questions (about their purchases). If a buyer wasn't a refund, don't hesitate to give one if one customer does give you a headache overall.

    - No, I won't be posting duplicate content.
    - Yes, I will be reposting from other popular accounts.
    - It's pretty easy, orders are automated through Oberlo.

    Thanks!

    It'll be better to ask the seller instead of me. @Valar Instagramis

    Eh, I both agree and disagree. I first started with Reddit customers who are even harder to deal with than Instagram customers. Didn't have a single charge back, had to give refund back to one customer though. But that was 1 out of the 300 orders I had, so no big deal.

    I will have one official Instagram for the website and will shout out from my 10 other accounts towards the one main account. I am opening multiple trials by using a link I have and creating multiple accounts.

    I will be posting 1-3 reposts everyday.

    :D

    Thanks

    Will do.

    Thanks

    Nice, how many accounts did you use?

    Thanks.

    How many followers did the account have?
