    Hello all, first off I would like to give you a little background about myself and what brought me here.

    I have been involved in IM for the past 10 years on and off. When I first started I did article/affiliate marketing. Made some really good money right at the start for only being 20 years old. My second month I was up to $100/day and after a couple more months I was up to $150/day. Unfortunately I turned 21 shortly there after and decided a social life was more important than making money, worst decision of my life.

    Since then I've been in and out of the game trying different stuff and failing for the most part or barely breaking even. The last thing I tried last year was Massplanner Facebook group posting. It was a miserable failure, invested about $500 in MP, accounts, proxies, etc. and didnt make a dollar.

    While I was trying the Facebook group posting I stumbled upon many IG threads here and it somewhat inspired me temporarily. Bought some IG accounts and set them up in MP, let them run on follow and then lost interest.

    Now I'm back and ready to give it another go. I had originally wanted to start this journey to help keep me inspired but as of this morning I have a greater reason, I'll explain later. To display the trials and tribulations of success. In order to become successful you'll have to overcome many obstacles and learn things you never would of thought to think about. So, let's get down to the real information.

    STRATEGY

    Use Massplanner to automate IG follow/unfollow (This will be the only tasks completed for IG)
    Discover 5 niches
    Implement 10 money making techniques (Email list, PPI, CPA, PPD, Etc.)
    Achieve a goal of $.50/day/account or better
    200+ active IG accounts
    Complete strategy in 3 months time from todays date.

    Now some of you may be thinking I'm doing a lot more than is needed but did you notice the thread title? Journey #1, I'm going to be as committed to this as possible to become successful. It's been a dream for years and I'm tired of my current situation. This is not where I planned to be at the age of 30. So, I have 2 journeys planned after this. I will do what it takes to make these first 2 journeys a success. The 3rd is kind of far fetched but I'm going to give it my best and I think it will determine who I am as a person and potential businessman.

    Completed As Of Now

    Setup Webtropia VPS
    Installed Massplanner on VPS
    Bought 30 proxies from BuyProxies
    Found a vendor for aged IG accounts and bought 10
    Setup and edited 10 accounts in Massplanner
    Set follow tool at low numbers to warm the accounts

    Currently the accounts have been running for about 24 hours and its already saddening. This is why I started to lose interest in Facebook group posting. 4 of my 10 accounts are already disabled, not in verification, they are gone. $14 gone in less than a day for something I'm assuming is an issue from the vendor. I noticed it immediately when I opened the account information file after purchase, the 4 accounts that have been disabled were formatted differently than the other 6 that are still active. As I'm typing this I'm talking to the vendor over Skype, so maybe I'll have an answer before I'm done typing this lol.

    As of this morning I had wanted to start working on niche selection and setting up websites after I got off work but the mood has changed some. Now I'm trying to figure out if I want to work things out with this vendor or find a new one which kind of sets me back to 0. I still have 6 active accounts so guess ill try to do the original plan for today.

    Estimated Investment

    One time
    -$100 Massplanner - Think I spent about $100 when I got it last year for all the modules
    -$875 Aged IG Accounts - Currently paying $3.5 for 1-2 year old accounts. $3.5 x 250 = $875
    -$70 Domains - Going to run 3 accounts/domain. $1 or less x 70 domains = $70 (I know it's recurring but wouldn't expect most to make it into renewal)

    = $1,045

    Recurring
    -$30 Massplanner - $10/month
    -$100 Proxies - 30 for $25/month. I should have all accounts setup by end of month 2.
    -$57 VPS - $19.xx/month 6 Core 8g ram 250g ssd VPS

    = $187

    Total investment - ~$1,250

    This number is derived from some shortcomings also. Only want to run 200 accounts but wouldn't be surprised if I have to buy 250+. Using 3 accounts per proxy with 90 proxies is also over kill but the additional proxies will be used soon enough. 70 domains is a bit much but the nature of this is I will lose some.

    Estimated Income

    ~$5,000

    Ready to make this happen, wish me luck...

    I got a few questions :
    What settings are you using in MP for 1-2y aged account ?
    Do you post pictures or just mass follow with link in bio ?

    How do you estimate your income is $ 5,000?

    What products you sell, or lead what?

    I tried affiliate, and found some nice niche, but slow, probably because my technique is not perfect

    It's going to be a lot of different things. My main goal is to build an email list. Also going to be doing CPA, PPI, and affiliate marketing.

    I use the basic settings file from the MP Facebook group page.
    No posts, only using follow for traffic and link in bio.

    Just looking at the account information file that was sent to me by the vendor you can tell something is different. It's like 2 different people setup the accounts I bought.

    I estimated at $5,000 due to the minimum income generated by the time I'm running this journey. $.50/day/account x 200 accounts x 90 days. But it's a progressive algorithm because not all accounts are setup yet and it was just a guess in the dark based on some math. I should have 1 full month of income before the end of my journey, so that's $3,000 and hopefully I can make around $2,000 in the first two months while I'm doing research and development.

    So, I got some good news yesterday from my vendor about the accounts. They replaced the 4 that I lost at no charge. Think it's because when I first bought I said I would be needing 250+ accounts within the next two months. Who wouldn't want to miss out on that business lol.

    Didn't get much else accomplished yesterday. Today I setup the 4 new accounts in MP and I'm about to start working on niche/offer selection and hoping to register some domains today.

    Told my vendor yesterday that if these accounts stay good I will be buying 20 more accounts in 2 days, which will be tomorrow.

    Once I have these 30 accounts setup, I'll let them run for one week to warm them up and get them closer to a daily follow limit that will allow some decent results from testing. These 30 accounts will be the basis of my research and development. Going to delegate groups of 6 accounts to 5 different offers/niches. During this week wait period I'll be building websites and working on an email campaign. I'm guessing for the first month I'll analyze data and tweak bios and landing pages for the best CTR.

    At the end of the first month I should know what my main focus should be and how to allocate further account distribution for month two in the scaling stage.

    20 more accounts added, up to a total of 30 now.

    Working on offer selection and building an email campaign.

    All accounts are setup on MP with a progressive daily following. This time next week I'll be adding bios to see what can come of all this.

    I'll update with progress every couple of days.

    Thanks for following.
