    Hello again everybody. I've made a journey thread before but it slowly died out and the method faded real quick.
    I'm back again to share with you my newest journey with instagram.


    --------------------------------------------------------------[​IMG]


    Here are some cliff notes to show you how I got where I am today:

    - Late October 2012 - Read this thread (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...am-script-methods-motherload-information.html) and started my own little IG campaign.

    - Late October 2012 - Got Botstagram and about 50 accounts

    - Late October 2012 - Started promoting an iphone email submit offer with little to no success. I think I was making like $1-3/day.

    - Late November 2012 - I added a small twist to my method and basically tripled my income :) Now at $3-9/day.

    - Early December 2012 - Had two $15/days.

    - Early December 2012 - Then BAM! IG made some HUGE changes. About all my accounts were banned. Botstagram quit working
    and it was almost impossible to spam comments. Back to $0/days :(

    - Early December 2012 - I purchased Instadominate, some more accounts, and also invested in some proxies. I decided to run the
    same method I was before since my conversion rate was about 12%. This method didn't last and was very soon saturated. Still making
    practically nothing.

    - Mid December 2012 - Instadominate got shut down and there will no longer be any updates. Although some features are still working,
    it is rumored that the bot will die out and be patched very soon. Luckily for me, I have access to a private bot (please do not pm me about
    this bot. I will not share it with you :0)

    - Late December 2012 to Present - With access to this new bot, I broke out the whiteboard, did some brainstorming and got a new method
    up and running. This new method proved to be much better than my last. Here are my numbers so far in January.

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    - Jan 02 - clicks 11 conversions 2 earnings $3.20
    - Jan 03 - clicks 39 conversions 6 earnings $8.25
    - Jan 04 - clicks 77 conversions 12 earnings $17.85
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Jan 05 - After this, the main offer I was promoting got shut down and is no longer available. I switched offers and have had almost no luck
    so far. I have recently applied to 3 more networks since my current networks aren't providing me with the offers I want/need to promote.
    While waiting for my approval,I decided to try out a new method not using CPA. I quickly setup a website and started sending
    my IG traffic there.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Jan 05 - Unique visitors: 56 Earnings: $9.10 (not bad for first day eh? :))
    Jan 06 - Unique visitors: 98 Earnings: $16.25

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    So that is where I'm at so far. I am still waiting to hear from the other networks so I can start doing
    my CPA method again. And I also have this potential golden nugget that's starting to take off :). I am
    very eager to see which method is more profitable and can't wait to run both of them at once. Thank
    you guys for reading my journey so far. I will try and answer any questions you guys have without giving
    away my methods of course. Oh... and $50/day is the first GOAL!

    So today I woke up to 3 emails. All from the CPA networks I applied to. Approved to all 3! Unfortunately one of the networks
    didn't have the type of offers I want to promote. The next network has them but I have to apply (which I did
    and am awaiting approval). And the last network still wants to talk to me over phone or skype which I will do
    in the next day or so.

    So still not being able to do my cpa method, I ran my other method instead. Today's earnings were pretty good
    considering I wasn't liking/following all day - which led to a low uv count for today.


    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Jan 07 - Unique visitors: 55 | Earnings: $16.25
    --------------------------------------------------------------



    I just bought some more IG accounts and some more proxies. Tomorrow I am going to DOUBLE
    the amount of accounts I'm using and I will like/follow all day. Hopefully this DOUBLES my $$$ earnings :) .

    I wont tell you my networks directly. I have seen some people get banned from their networks by posting them
    here if they don't allow IG traffic. I will share this link (http://www.mobilecpanetworks.org/) with you though which
    has a decent list of mobile cpa networks. If you guys are thinking of applying, I recommend making it really clear in
    your application that you will ONLY send them mobile traffic. Also be sure that your network accepts IG traffic (or do
    sum good fake refers). A lot of networks don't allow it and will ban you if that is your traffic source.

    So today didn't go as well as planned. Had some bot issues in the beginning and am still
    not sure if they're working properly or not. I'll do some more tests tomorrow and get
    things straightened out. Anyway here are today's numbers:

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Jan 08 - Unique visitors: 75 | Earnings: $14.82

    Hey Everyone! GREAT NEWS!!!!! I REACHED MY FIRST GOAL!! :)

    I got accepted to one of the cpa offers on one of my new networks this morning.
    I decided to split test bothmethods for today to see how it goes. Well it went
    SPECTACULAR! FOR BOTH METHODS! Here is today's incredible numbers:





    CPA METHOD
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Jan 09 - Clicks: 55 | Conversions: 13 | Earnings: $31.45
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    OTHER METHOD
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Jan 09 - Unique visitors: 72 | Earnings: $18.71
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    TODAYS EARNINGS: $50.16





    To be honest, I am a little skeptical with this new network. I'm not sure if they are going to see my really high CR and just instaban me?
    I've heard this happens to some people though. Before I SUPER scale this - I am going to ride it out and see if I get a check first :) . In the
    meantime, I will continue to send them traffic with the same amount of accounts as I used today. Thank you all for reading! Goodnight!

    There are many methods of getting traffic from instagram. The main methods are obviously just mass liking/following 24/7. If you can mix in some commenting, pic uploading and other twists, getting CONVERTING traffic is pretty easy.

    I am using a a mixture of instadominate(no longer being updated) and a private bot at the moment. :)

    well, good luck with your venture, but that EPC will raise eyebrows
    if i were you, i'd ask my AM, if ig traffic is ok with them or not
    why waist your traffic, if it's a no go with them?
    i won't list them here, but there are networks mentioned on the forum which can take ig traffic for sure

    Hey everyone.

    As you may know, my bots quit working and were no longer being updated. So all my campaigns eventually died out.
    I took the last couple months getting the bot situation squared away. After some time I'm finally ready to start up again.
    It seems as if my cpa method is really saturated by now.

    I am going to continue with both methods and will post an update in the next few days. Happy Easter. Christ has RISEN!
