    I've been around these forums for a while now as you can see by the join date and months before I even joined.

    I'm 24 currently and have been doing freelance webdesign for friends of friends and family friends, ect. off and on. I've done maybe 10 websites or so in the past few years. Not much money, just some extra income. I've always wanted to take it a step further, but never did. But now is the time.

    I quit my 8-5 salary job and will concentrate on this full time. Planning on doing both an offline method and an online method. Online method is going to be Instagram - get thousands of followers, sell shoutouts and eventually start directing them to my website that will have items in the niche for them to buy.

    I figured I would keep a journey thread here to help keep me more motivated as that's one thing I have a hard time being. So...

    Today I bought the Instagram bot FollowLiker for $97.99 and set it up along with two Instagram accounts, the bot is currently running. Had to buy some poxies also to run, so that was another $10 for 10 proxies.

    It's 11pm currently, so calling it a night. I have a total of 3 Instagrams, all of which are totally different niches. It's interesting to find which ones are easier to gain followers on.

    Obviously no money yet, but have the following on the accounts:

    Account 1: 117 followers (Started yesterday)
    Account 2: 8 Followers
    Account 3: 8 Followers

    It'll be next week before I start with the offline method. I'm starting to ponder Amazon and Adsense again... just have to make sure I don't bite off more than I can chew.

    Good luck OP!

    You quit your job? It must be nice! I wish I could screw around on the computer all day. ��

    I'm assuming you have a great family that supports you?

    On your journey: I know next to nothing about Instagram. If you could go into some details about exactly what you are doing that would be great.

    It's more on the fact that my bills are currently lower. Since I just graduated college a year ago, I never got my own place so still living with roommates instead of paying full rent or mortgage by myself. Also was able to graduate with no student debt, so don't have that lingering over my head each month. I still pay for everything myself, but my monthly expenses will never be cheaper than what they are now, so figured this is the best time.

    If you go to the Instagram page here on BHW, there is a wealth of knowledge. Basically if you can get to over 10k followered (100k+ in some niches), you can start redirecting followers to pages that can make you money and also other Instagrammers who are trying to get followers will pay for a 'shoutout' on your page.

    _______________________

    Little update. I took a short break over the weekend to have a party with my roommate who just graduated college. So didn't do a whole lot. I currently have the following:

    Account 1: 148 Followers
    Account 2: 53 Followers
    Account 3: 85 Followers

    Also tried something with Amazon and have curreently made $12.67 over the weekend. Will update the totals of spent and earned at the end of the day.

    Good Luck Op and remember what everyone says on here do not give up , keep trying even if you fail figure out why you failed and make changes to the method and then when you start to make money scale it up .

    Thanks guys.

    Update for today (11pm). Just kept going with the Instagram bot trying to get as many follower's as possible. Was hoping to be higher than my current numbers, but not too bad. I am seeing about 60-75% of my likes are non-followers though, so trying to figure out how to convert them. Worked a little on Amazon, but they only update their numbers once a day, so hopefully we'll see some progress with that in the morning.

    Account 1: 151 Followers
    Account 2: 67 Followers
    Account 3: 123 Followers

    Had to make a 5 hour round trip yesterday to pick up my wallet I left visiting somewhere.. that was fun, so was exhausted when I got home. Wasn't able to do any IM, so hammering it out today. My Instagram accounts are still growing; it's interesting to see which niche is easier to get followers' with. Also still made a decent amount from Amazon from previous marketing days. I went to bed and have a great idea on how to grow it more, so excited to start that today. Anywho, the numbers from this morning:

    Account 1: 160 Followers
    Account 2: 79 Followers
    Account 3: 165 Followers

    Spent the day working on my idea on how to monetize my Amazon channel. We'll find out tomorrow how it work.
    Also created another Instagram page. Wanting to do one more tomorrow. Looking to create one or two sites from some domains I have with either Adsense or Amazon tomorrow also. Hoping to see good results from the work I put in today for Amazon in the morning.

    Updated..

    I've been watching this thread since you started it, and it's one of my favorite journeys on here. It's very motivational (for me at least) to go all in. You've quit your job, and it looks like it's going pretty well, but the idea is terrifying for me. By the way, what is your goal as far as net profit per day? How much do you expect to be able to make with Instagram?
    I love the thread though, so keep it up! :clap2:

    Good read so far, looking forward to more updates. I haven't messed around with instagram so I'm very interested to see how that works.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the post. Goal is make $100 net each day, so it'll be around $36,000 a year. Not a whole lot, but if I can make that steady, it'll obviously just keep growing. As I mentioned before, I'm just 24 and have roommates still, so I don't need $100,000 to live off from in the next year thankfully.

    You can make money through Instagram by sending your followers to your website(s) and either selling them products, or running a contest where the requirement is filling out a survey (one of those sites that gives a referral for filling surveys). Also businesses and other Instagram accounts pay for "shoutouts" to advertise themselves. There's money to made, but it takes a lot of followers.

    It appears the Amazon monetized work a little. Had 11 items shipped and 17 items ordered yesterday. Here are my stats:

    Account 1: 164 Followers
    Account 2: 102 Followers
    Account 3: 241 Followers
    Account 4: 19 Followers

    Well yesterday was semi-successful day. Was excited to check out my Amazon earnings and hit $20.53 yesterday. Not too bad, but hopefully it'll keep growing.
    Instagram kept growing, but a long long ways to go before I expect even a $1 from it.

    Planning on getting a site or two up today with either Amazon and Adsense, or both.

    Numbers:

    Account 1: 168 Followers
    Account 2: 128 Followers
    Account 3: 302 Followers
    Account 4: 51 Followers

    I'm trying to get my followers up on Instagram so I can start making easy money daily, but currently I'm doing Amazon affiliate ads, which is where the money is coming from.

    A viral story website? If you can get it to take off, they are a lucrative type website, but a lot of work.
