I'll start by saying that this is my first post aside from my introduction (I am trying to follow all guidelines). Beginning these past few days, I took a deep look into the content on this site and I am absolutely hooked. I am writing post because after a few days of reading, I have come up with a plan that I'm fairly confident of and now it's time to chase it. On top of that there is a statistic claiming that those who write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them, sharing with friends increases that number to 72%. Here's my idea. As the title suggests, I want a SEO business. Being a beginner just one or two clients would be even enough for now. What got me set on this idea was a submission by Taktical (Sorry newbie here, can't link, here is the title: How I built my offline SEO/Social Media empire earning $15,000 a month in three months!!!). For anybody interested, go read through and you'll get an idea of what I'm chasing. Since this is my first attempt, I will be starting with a social media medium I am fairly familiar with - Instagram. I chose it because of it's easy navigation, quick follower acquisition, relevantly simple userbase, and most importantly can be access through my phone so I am always capable of checking up on things if I need to. Here is the plan I have in my head. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Step one - Create a few accounts Fairly simple step. Bunch of registrations, verifications, etc. I am particularly interested in creating a no-fail type of page, something like puppies, memes, funny pics, you get the idea. Step two - Like macro/bot So a while back Instagram had a little update. Originally pictures were all in a 1:1 resolution which made using a like macro EXTREMELY easy. At this point, all aspect ratios are different and using a simple record and repeat macro won't work. I have looked into a software such as Ubot but haven't had success as the software is pretty outdated and isn't even able to load the page. Any suggestions would really be valuable but I can do more digging. Step three - Follow/unfollow bot This one is easy. All the information is neatly presented, set up a recorded macro, nothing to worry about. Step four - Finding content Another easy step. Honestly Reddit is going to be my source for 99% of the content and if anything, it's not difficult to get creative. I should really consider automating this process as well but we'll see. Step five - Rinse and repeat My goal is around 5k followers on each account. I'm imagining that with these tactics and with a bit of luck, it should be that difficult to get a bunch of kids/ dumb teenagers to be following my accounts. Being entirely honest this is a terrible tactic to market in my opinion. But in my instance marketing towards my followers isn't the picture but rather at the big boys with a lot of cash that I'll be ready to sign into contracts any day. Step six - Figure out the rest I can't say that I have this figured out till the very end yet. I can pretend that I do but the reality is that this is all a huge learning process with a lot of potential. With that being said, I have something to keep me occupied for now and if I start running out of things to do, other mediums exist and can all totally be automated just like this one. But remember that Taktical's post is where I want to end up. Anyways, I hope for those reading that at least one person sees some light in me. I'll be working really hard these next couple of days and I'm really glad that just reading has started to convert into actions. I'll definitely update soon with details on the progress. If anyone want's to throw out some ideas/suggestions like for the like bot situation, I would be extremely grateful. Thank you BHW and thanks for reading!
