What's up guys, Biffer here.

Not too long ago I knew nothing about IM whatsoever, and this forum is where I started off, learned the basics and got hooked on internet money. I'm deciding to do a journey thread to keep me slightly accountable to achieving my goals, and to hopefully motivate & educate some users here.

I recently opened an AMA thread which was prematurely closed, so I thought this would be a better idea.

PLEASE DO NOT PM ME ASKING FOR ANY SERVICES WHATSOEVER

Anyway, I am a 24 year old from the UK, I have been using Instagram for 3 years now. My agency is at ~$10,000/month currently and I plan to raise this to a minimum of $50k/month before 2019 is closed.


A little bit about me and my history:

- Started IM with lots of random methods (local SEO - i had no idea about this, porn reupload etc)
- Found Instagram spam and got hooked after getting my first payment from OGAds
- Got sick of spamming IG and constant PV's / bans stressed me to the max every day :mad:
- Realised I knew a lot about IG, how to build an audience and how to monetise
- Started approaching clients to manage their IG, and slowly transitioned from spamming to client work
- Fast forward 18 months and my agency is at a comfortable $10k/month, I have made good systems for everything and know what is needed to scale and what issues I will likely face


I will update here every so often with my progress and any big milestones towards my goal, there may be periods of inactivity as I do not spend much time here, mainly focusing on my work day to day.

I realize there are many details I have not included here, so anything you would like me to cover feel free to ask below (not in PMs please).

Thanks man, saw your like on the AMA thread. Means a lot to get a comment from you, and in my whole IM journey no one made as much of an impact on me as you did, I tip my hat to you sir.

Will be following this!

I'm just under 100 clients, varying price ranges though.

What's your average customer lifetime value? how long do your clients stay with you on average?

which niche did you find most successful?

how much time do you invest in the sales process for a new client? (calls, demo account set-up, follow-ups etc)

Wow, thats quite a lot! What sort of proxies do you use to run that many accounts?
Mobile proxies, 1-1

Following once again?
Once again, long story but other thread was closed.....

Good questions.
Still figuring out customer LTV, as I have not been generating them cold as yet. Consequently, most of the clients I have gained are still with me currently. I need to work this out soon and as I scale. Clients stay with me for at least 3-6 months in general, however like I said; these are people who have interacted with me and I feel that impacts how long they stay. When I am scaling I am not going to interact personally with each customer and I feel that will have a big impact with LTV.

E-commerce, wannabe influencers and restaurants.

Minimal now, in general I receive referrals from existing clients and there is next to 0 sales needed. At the beginning I used to spend probably 15 mins doing custom audit emails and then a 15/30 minute call.

Can you give description of what the service entails for a given price point?
Sure, attracting 100’s of real, relevant followers who can be remarketed to for life. These will often turn into customers, leads, clients or whatever you need. All for $99/m.

Is it 10k profit or 10k revenue?
$10k/ full profit or the revenue?
How much you getting after all the expenses like for running ads etc?
Just over $10k/m revenue, ~80% profit with running costs and a VA to manage client accounts.
I’m not running paid ads for any clients currently.


Thank you all for your questions

Hey dude,

glad to see you did open a new thread.

So you mentioned in your previous thread, that you did manage to avoid taxes for quite a while (if i got that right).
Could you please elaborate on that a little more in detail?

thx

Hey, saw your AMA thread but it was closed for some reason? Anyways, I wanted to ask something that nobody had asked yet, but how do you deal with the legalities with your clients? Do you just give them a standard service agreement template document? Thanks!

Are you cold calling clients to build your base or IM/IG DM?

Great thread, will follow.

When you said "do not PM asking for services," did you mean that you're not taking clients from BHW whatsoever, or just that you didn't want people begging for free stuff?

When running the mother/child structure, do you link to the mother account in the bios of child accounts? If so, have you experienced any trouble with IG in doing so? How many mother/child operations do you run compared to standard f/uf?
