    Considering hitting up instagram to see if i can make any money. If i decide to go through with it ill be buying a years copy to xGram. Just looking to make as much as i can which what i have available, is instagram still profitable or should i look else where?

    Thanks in advance

    Still very much profitable, you just can't spam like you could in the beginning. Alot of updates have been going on lately bro, but if you know how to build accounts carefully then go for it :)

    Also watch out for what words get your comments ghosted, stuff like: Money, free, Ipod/pad/phone. All the normal that raise flags ;)

    If you plan to try spamming badly, by just trying to blast crap comments such as "make money here", don't expect to make much.

    If you are creative, come up with your own ideas, comments, and use different CPA offers that are not exhausted yet, instagram is still very profitable.

    Im one of thous people that go for quality over quantity. Much rather work on an account over the next month that i can continue post CPA links to every now and then which will last me than making thousands of accounts and spamming. xGram looks like it would be a huge help so i may just have to give it ago and see how things work out.

    Cheers for the advice

    Edit: Just had a thought. Ill be needing proxies correct? How much should i expect to spend on them monthly if i work with a few accounts.

    do some of your own testing, nothing will replace some good trial and error personal results

    I started out with 10 proxy's and made 5 accounts per proxy, I'd go for fully private proxy's as shared ones tend to get banned rather quick.

    Yeah marketing via Instagram is hot right now and by no means does that mean it is saturated. There are plenty of strategies you can use but the best are your own! Create twists on some of the methods shared on BHW and surely you will be earning money. ;-)

    i agree. pinterest traffic is definitely amazing if you know what you are doing.
    although i am not marketing on instagram, i do know how powerful it can be.
    i will be starting my instagram ventures soon though....
    the key to any marketing is to get creative and come up with your own methods.
    be a leader, not a follower. symbolically and social network wise haha

    Did plan on buying a new HDD for my PC but i know reinvesting that money into to say xGram would be the better option, hopefully ill be able to double even triple what i put in.
    Guess ill give it ago and see how things work out.

    Cheers for all the comments!

    It will take some time to build a thriving campaign, but you can definitely make a lot of money. There is a xGram Skype chat to get help and share ideas, and some people are getting dozens of clicks per minute (or seconds) at peak hours.

    There's a link in my signature to my xGram toolkit as well. It has everything you need as a companion to xGram, and it's free to use. There is also a link to a preferred proxy provider so you can estimate proxy costs.

    The usual rule of thumb is to manage up to 5 accounts on one proxy, but only make 1-2 accounts per day on a proxy.

    Cheers for that Azthizay! Bookmarked the page for later use.
    How many accounts would you recommend i make? I was thinking of building up between 5-10 Accounts which id work on over time, instead of spamming them id send out a few links each day. Would that be the better option?

    You could build 5-10 accounts, but you wouldn't get very far. You could have 5-10 main accounts that you personally work on, share quality content, etc.

    But the point of the bot is to have so many accounts that you can do mass promotion without hitting any Instagram rate limits. So you could make 400-1000 accounts and use those to promote your 5-10 main accounts, to start. Then build up from there.
