    I posted a thread in the Making Money section requesting help to monetise a 28.8k Instagram. I went from 28.9k in less than 30minutes soon after.

    My account is currently: 30,109 followers.
    After reaching 29.2k followers I decided to buy followliker.

    So my goal right now is to reach 35k by Friday, all i'm doing is scraping users and following them. I have varied the tasks day by day, sometimes doing comments and likes, other times using comments, likes and followers at once although each task is normally shuffled (i'm trying not to create a pattern).

    FollowLiker custom settings for today are:

    Here are my stats from 19-21st (still on going for today):

    NOTE: 19-09-2015 was only run for around 30minutes as I later had to rush out to the hospital and didn't leave it running.


    I will try to keep the updates as regular as possible, my girlfriend just gave birth to our daughter so i'm spending 95% of my time at the hospital so can only update once every two days at the moment maybe.

    The plan is to monetise this the best way possible, but not until I am reaching 50k+ followers.
    My options are:
    • Adsense (daily posts related to my niche)
    • Shoutouts
    • CPA (not really considering this)
    • Store (selling niche related products)

    I have had great success working with Instagram store owners, some of which reaching $XX,XXX so it's definitely high on my options list right now.
    I would love to make my journey worth reading and making it possible for others to do the same.

    That is unrelated, I do Web design for them and sometimes have a % of the store, by taking an upfront design fee plus a certain % by month.

    Congrats on having a daughter, and don't you think your delay per follow is a bit too low and number of follows per day a bit too high? Might put your account at risk. Also, you should buy a cheap VPS as you're running just one account and use followliker on it 24/7.

    Subscribed. This is so interesting to read, both about your daughter (congratulations!!) and your exploding journey! Have you ever considered liking and commenting as well? Why only following? Have any trouble occurred with those high settings?

    Thanks in advance! Have a wonderful day!

    I found a little trick with the limits on Instagram!

    but no, if I do it manually via mobile I'll reach a limit or temp ban but if I do it via followliker, I get no such thing regardless of my settings, those settings above are as high as ever! - tomorrow they will be different as I like to be unpredictable.

    Around 1.8k on average, but I get a lot of comments too! All tagging friends and what not so that's helping with growth too, although it's not as effective as followliker.

    Thank you, it's been a busy day or two with the birth but it's done with and things are moving forward today and she's all healthy and mum is getting better too, but she don't approve of the time I spend trying to build this account lol.

    I have considered likes and comments, I tend not to do as much but I have done if you check my stats. Right now im playing with settings and how they are right now are working good, im changing everything daily to avoid being predictive.

    thank you! I thought that too but it's been about 36hours, no temp ban or limits although there is a trick with insta's limit. As of now the settings are being varied so I can try to find what's good and what's bad, but this has worked the best so far.

    UPDATE: today, I have reached 300 followers due to being in hospital looking after my family and not leaving the BOT running for reasons such as not knowing when im heading home and 2-3 days same setting might raise questions.

    tomorrow, I'm looking at least 1k follower gain.

    ill keep you informed, sorry about the short update.

    I just got to congratulate you again! This is amazing, so happy for you! Now you've got 2 babies that you have to care of and see them both grow rapidly hand in hand! Hope your daughter becomes as entrepreneurial as you. Would've been a great father-daughter activity whenever mum's not around ;)

    Good luck bro, I use higher limits using mobile.

    Do update us if you do get temp banned using those settings above. Would be interesting to know how long you can run with those settings using your method.

    Thank you, I don't believe money is motivation so right now its more of an hobby that I do throughout the day. I believe everything good will come in due time so I'm just holding out with Instagram for now, my girls will have everything they need.

    I have owned it since 19th, if you'd care to share your settings that would be great, i'd appreciate it a ton. My automation is 30sec - 1:30, I'm not very patient when it comes to seeing figure rise.

    Thank you, I will reply to your PM asap.

    Thank you, the plan is to stay persistent even while times are difficult, dig deep and keep on going.

    Thank you for your kind words, will update again tomorrow!

    ----

    Having a baby the first ever night is proving difficult, I don't think i'll be sleeping so why not try and grow the acc some more???

    UPDATE 24/09/15:

    Well the plan was to reach 35k followers by tomorrow, although with whats happened and my baby girl being born it's not possible unless I was to receive 4,400 followers tonight. The Wi-Fi at the hospital was unreliable and wasn't doing justice with the bot, so now i'm home (discharged last night) I can get the ball rolling again.

    Today's list:
    - I'm going to be sticking with the settings above.
    - Hopefully reach another 500-1000 followers.

    I'll post back later today with updates and statistics.
