    I'm like many of you (I guess) , I try many things online to make money but leave them quick after a few days or a week. This time I'm giving content locking another shot, I tried before but stopped after a couple of days, lets see if I can make it work this time.
    This journey thread is pretty much to keeps me motivated and focused, probably won't work will see :)
    I'll be pretty detailed here because it's no secret how content locking works, there's no mysteries - you lock something that people want up and make them do a quick action in order to get it.
    Here we go :

    The goal - $30 a day with Instagram. The network I'm using pays about 50 cents per action so it comes down to about 60 a day. I don't know if I can get that many with only 1 IG account but will see.
    The tools to achieve this :
    - 1 IG account, about a month old
    - FollowLiker bot
    - domain
    - OGmobi account for monetizing

    What I'm going to do is basic content locking. I have a working hack (it doesn't have to be working but mine is) for a somewhat popular game and will make people download a free app in order to be able to see it. It's not exactly a hack to be precise, but more of a bug in the game, when they run out of lives they can use my "hack" and keep playing.

    The IG account was used for another project before and the last few days I was pretty much unfollowing people and only liking posts in the new niche and commenting but from my phone, not from FL. Here are the starting stats:
    FL 2.28.png

    The money part - since Insta is pretty much all mobile users, making them download an app is better as a content lock than a survey. The network I'll use is OGmobi, the owner is a member here and seems like a good fit. So for the 3 days or so I'm trying this the results ain't bad for the amount of work done - made 80 cents the first day, about $2 yesterday and this is so far today:
    OGmobi 2.28.jpg
    I'll make a few more comments from my phone tonight and start all FollowLiker fully automated tomorrow.

    The domain : bought a domain which has a variation of the name of the game I have a hack for - example if the game was ( unfortunately It's not) "Subway Surfers" the domain would have to be something like subwaycheats/dot/com , or for ClashofClans - clancheats/dot/com . Actually since i'm not going to rank this domain if it's .com or .net or .info or whatever doesn't' matter - as long as its niche relevant it's OK and will make people click on it.

    The set up : the domain is in my account's bio, I'm not going to post it in the comments because i think it doesn't work and might get the account flagged (correct me if I'm wrong please) . I have a simple short sales pitch in the account - something like "For unlimited lives" and an arrow pointing down to it . The domain as of now is redirected from the domain register to the mobile locker directly - no landing page and no hosting. OGmobi lets you put about 100-200 characters explanation on top of their locker page and so far this info about what they will get seems to be enough to doing the trick.

    The plan : I did all the "hard" work so far already and from now on it's pretty much up to FollowLiker. I'll set it up to follow 300-500 a day, like 500-700 and make 50-100 comments. I have 15 images on the account so that's enough. I'm not really looking for growing the account and gaining followers, all I want is people's attention for a few seconds and maybe if they want to click the link in the bio and unlock the hack.

    Expenses so far :
    $8 for the domain
    FollowLiker - I had it from before, it was about $80 package deal with the Twitter bot

    Income: $6


    That's pretty much it, any question - post below.

    Hey Swedish bro:)Thanks for the good wishes, I know 1 account might not do it but if i see good results scaling up is the easiest part - IG accounts are cheap and so are proxies. What I'm after is fully automated passive income from now on. The images in the account are in, I'm not going to post anything from now on, the domain is all set, the short presale text seems to be working, so yeah - set-and-forget is what I'm looking for.

    Hey Dante12, good luck in your journey! I'm trying to do something similar to you but I'll be doing it on twitter not instagram. I have an account with 398k followers in the adult niche, all real followers. I'm thinking of doing giveaways, real giveaways, but what I'm thinking of doing is having setting up a website with those offers and surveys that people complete and you get paid. Then linking people to my site with the surveys and have them complete one in order to enter the give away. Do you think this could be a good idea? Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, you just seem to know what you're doing and I would like to get some feedback from you on this. Thanks!

    Goodluck. I am doing something like that. I think its very very hard to make that with one account but its possible if you go viral. Now i am using 3 accounts and im making 6$ on avarage. I am going to make 10 more accounts tomorrow. I am not getting much because the accs dont go viral. I just buy like 1000 followers for 1$ to look legit and get some free 100 likes per post. There is a awesome reseller here on bhw who is giving unlimited review copies for social media services so thats a free 100followers or likes a day

    Hey MadWildder, real giveaway sounds good, much better for long term profits if that's what you are after. People have been doing fake giveaways for years but real is better:)
    So from what i know and I'm no content locking expert is for mobile traffic you better off with OGmobi because the user has to download only an app - much easier to convert than a survey . I don't know about your traffic but my Twitter traffic is 60% + mobile , if that's your case I would go with OGmobi locker URL and in the "desktop traffic" will put my other regular locker with the survey, look at this screenshot , hope that makes it clear:
    ogMOBI EXPLAINED.png

    this way mobile users see the app lock and the desktop users see the survey. As to what company to use for the desktop survey lock - i hear good things about CPAlead and CPAgrip but can't really say who's better.
    Let me know if you have other questions

    Hey Dante, if I do these giveaways they will be real giveaways. Since my account is adult, I'm thinking of giving away like some playboy posters, calenders, magazines, stuff like that and also money. If things go really well, I could also giveaway website subscriptions, like a month subscription to Playboy or some other adult paid site. I wouldn't have trouble getting people to see my give away because I have 398k followers. Plus I have friends that have bigger account than me, and they're always willing to help me.

    I'm not sure how many of my followers are coming from mobile devices, how can I check this? Does twitter analytics show this information?

    That OGMobi site looks good, gonna do some research on it. Also gonna look into CPAlead and CPAgrip, thanks! Do you know if they accept adult traffic?

    Hey Blue, thanks. I think 1 account won't be enough probably. Main reason is the nihe is extremely small, when I do a search in IG for hashtags about this game it gives like a few thousand only. So that "market" is really small and have to get after a bigger one . Final stats for today - $4.2 earned , not bad. The bot made 300+ likes and i made about 15 comments manually, and no follows today

    Not bad, you are doing great! :)

    I guess you are going to need more accounts yet it is possible to earn $30 with only one account, you just need to think outside the box. Maybe you can share more cracked apps than just one and this way you have more people to target. :)

    Good luck!

    Good luck, if you can get some good results with only 1 account you should set up more accounts. Can you talk more about the settings your are going to use? You plan to run comments, follows and likes? You plan to higher the settings when the account gets older?

    Today's settings:

    300 follows
    350 likes
    400 unfollows ( still have to get rid of the followers that i had before)
    no comments today from FL , maybe later from my phone if I remember

    Midday stats - 13 clicks, 2 conversions , 60 cents made. Slow start of the day but so far I'm usually getting conversions in the evening so will see.

    And yes, I'll increase the follows/likes/comments in a few days, the account is over 30 days old so I think it can handle it. But than again - who really knows:) I see people here claim they do 1000+ follows a day and don't get banned and people who do 200 get canned, IG is weird

    Small update - nothing much to report, with all the IG temporary bans I'm just laying low for a few days with FL. Only making 5-10 comments a day manually, those seem to work best anyway since you can add a personal touch and don't be spammy. Those comments are making $1-2 a day which for the work done ain't bad.
    Will update in a few days when insta stops being such a b*tch and loosen up
