    Hey guys, when I look at some of your messages on instagram, I mostly see things like "hey guys look how I made $$$$ in a few days from home >>> @myafflink"

    That's just sucks, and that's the better way for Insta to ban you, or make them notice that their network is more and more spammed.

    So try to be more subtil, it shouldn't be too difficult for imaginative guys like you, and would help us spamming instagram on the long term without being flagged :)

    Cheers

    The thing is people dont think!
    They dont want to go longterm and they spam the shit out of instagram!
    Andy they dont thing about how to promote and they only do it on popular page images and on popular hashtags!
    What everyones doing basically!
    0 gain and 0 profit most of the times and 100% disaster :mad:

    OP feel free to suggest better ways, instead of just complaining, because unless they find a better alternative, they will keep doing that

    It's fun to make money, but it's also fun to get creative and the reward is greater when you know you have single handedly master minded a $$$ or $$$$ a day method. You have to go beyond surface level. Study your audience @ http://quantcast.com/instagram.com and serve them something they actually care about.

    unfortunately, your post on 1 of many marketing forums isn't going to inspire anyone to change their ways. this is how spam protection for a website starts, its natural and it will always work this way. people start with the easiest, mass spam, dirty tactics then once those are patched up (a few) people begin to innovate and others copy them.

    imagine if everyone listened to you.. that simple, spammy method would all of a sudden start generating the few people who are left doing it most of the money you gave away. why would anyone stop making money when what they're doing is working.

    Thing is, as long as this type of unthoughtful spam still works, people won't stop. However, if you are a bit more creative with your approach of spamming the CTR increases :)

    That's what I am talking. I understand everyone have his own way of doing that, but that is just retarded. You are doing short term and making worst for everyone and for your self. Cause soon or later they will bring new restriction. Think on long term, but site with content and spam to content, cause users will really like it and can go viral, and you will not be marked as classic spammer with affiliate links. U just need traffic to your website, then u can make money on hundred ways.

    I stopped too! LOL at this no one is gonna stop if they are making money. I agree with this thread but it is pointless cause the people doing the careless spamming will be gone as soon as IG updates and then the rest of us will Cake!
