    Sup blackhat! My name is Sam and this will be my first journey to starting my own business.

    A little about me, I am a business economics student in my 3rd year at a UC. I'm a hard worker and always fantasize about selling off a business and using the money to buy a bit of real estate and retire early. I am not a materialistic kind of guy and not looking to drive some expensive car. I just want to do what I want when I want.

    I am incredibly new to IM and have not had much success yet but that hasn't stop me one bit. Please be easy on me and if you have anything to say like giving some advice or asking a question go ahead and say it. I accept all.

    Lets get back to business.

    I want to use social media accounts from across all platforms to drive traffic to a future business idea or ideas that I have been thinking about. At the moment I am using just instagram but I will eventually expand into twitter, pinterest, and fb as time goes by.

    Right now, I have 9 instagram accounts following and unfollowing all in the same niche. I have also just ordered a android phone and some sim cards to create more accounts. I am not entirely confident that these accounts will stay alive because of my prior poor account creation skills but I hope for the best and if anything were to happen I will just buy or create more when I get my phone.

    I am using 5 virgin ig proxies and massplanner ig edition to manage the account actions. I also have a vps.

    These are my current stats for the 9 ig accounts:

    # of Followers
    Account 1: 410
    Account 2: 614
    Account 3: 324
    Account 4: 416
    Account 5: 25
    Account 6: 24
    Account 7: 43
    Account 8: 1486
    Account 9: 337
    Below are my mass planner follow settings. I can always use some advice when it comes to following/unfollowing.

    Screen Shot 2016-02-19 at 6.07.20 PM.jpg

    In the future I plan on buying 5 more virgin proxies and creating up to 30 accounts. I know that some accounts are larger than others and I could follow more but I just want to take it slow. I will steadily increase all of the settings as time goes by. I am no need to rush.

    Goal: Create 9 twitter accounts and upload profile pics and cover.

    Lastly, I just want to say thank you to everyone on blackhat that takes time out of their day to post such incredibly useful content. I would not be where I am without you guys. This community is beyond wonderful!

    - Sam

    hi best of luck with your journey,

    how many sims can the phone hold at once, ive seen a duel sim before I was just on ebay looking for one that could handle more than 2 sims, would be handy.

    how do you find virgin proxies, can you recommend a supplier? also how can you trust they are virgin and not recycled,

    thanks, gluck!

    Hey thank you!

    The phone I ordered to my knowledge can only hold one sim at a time. I went with a pretty popular supplier that justchillin recommend: sslprivateproxies . com
    Check to see if there are any coupons online before buying cause that will save you a lot of money as the months go by. Make sure to buy instagram proxies on the site.

    Hope it helps!

    These are Chinese Phones which can hold 4 SIM cards but using same phone would give same device ID to all accounts. That might be bad if they decide to check all accounts related to that device ID in a spam situation. I heard some company in India has launched a smart phone for $7 or something.

    You can make 10 Twitter accounts using one SIM if you want but that would kinda too risky. I have tried this for my account which I grow manually without doing any spam. I haven't had a problem.

    I was under the impression that you can change the device id on a android phone though?

    Progress Update: I have successfully found twitter accounts to follow and have added the twitter accounts to my campaign. At the moment I have about a week worth of pictures ready to go.

    Across all accounts I am follow around 100 people a day. In a few days I will increase that to 200 follows a day. Engagement at the moment is good! I am going to look for some videos now to help increase the engagement.

    I hope this helps anyone who is looking for some help! Btw, if you think my follow settings could use some improvement please advise! I love helpful criticism. I always want to improve. :)

    I'm trying some Twitter stuff too. I think you could get away with following a lot more people.

    I think I'm following somewhere from 150 to 450 per day and my settings are pretty conservative.

    Once I get enough followers across all of my social networks I plan on opening up an ecommerce store or stores that is related to my niche. I think that by pursing this direction I can build a true business. I am working with a close friend of mine in real life to help develop the non-social media/internet side of the future business.
