    Hello!
    This is my first journey thread.

    I presently make about $50 a day on Fiverr and I would like to make another $50 a day with another venture so I could make about $100 total. That's $36,500 a year! A decent salary to work from home from :)

    Okay so before I lay down my plan on how I will use Instagram and a Content Locker to make $50 a day, please note I cannot spill all the nitty gritty details on my plan. For obvious reasons, this risk copycats, saboteurs, etc. I also will try to answer as many questions in here as I can. For every post I make updating my journey, I will try to update the OP (if possible) to links to my updates in the thread. If I reach my goal, I will reveal exactly what I did, exactly what I offered, etc.

    THE PLAN

    - I will create a website designed extremely well, with an attractive, persuasive, and legit looking landing page.
    - I will register a domain that's relevant, legit looking, and easy to share. I DO NOT care about ranking this site or keyword. Instagram will be my medium to promote my site. Example "freeSOMETHINGoffer.com" "freeSOMETHING.org"
    - I will offer the visitors SOMETHING. To access this free SOMETHING, I will ask the users to fill out of survey or complete an offer (Content locker). I will choose a content locker where the content will be slightly visible in the background behind the list of offers. This looks more legit and helps convert more!
    - I will be upfront on the site. I will have a "How it works" kind of section on the landing page explaining that filling out these surveys or completing these offers keeps this SOMETHING free"
    - I will create an Instagram account with freeSOMETHING in the username. With an appropriate profile picture and photos.
    - I will use an Instagram bot to search popular tags, and post photos using those tags. The photos I post will be a splash image showing the SOMETHING and how to get it free.
    - I will search for relevant tags to my SOMETHING and have the bot post comments to promote.
    - I will buy followers to make my account look very popular. I will offer shoutouts to everyone who shares the photo on their feed. I may also make it a requirement to get free SOMETHING along with content locker.
    - I may use a social locker.

    TOOLS

    Themeforest - to purchase a great looking landing page then customize it
    Content locker plugin - still undecided which network and plugin to use (ideally mobile optimized, like "download this app to complete offer")
    Ultimate Niche Finder - to find appropriate keywords to use and domain and competition, even though I dont care about ranking
    Instagram bots - xGramBot and Instaget Pro
    Proxies - So I don't get banned from Instagram
    1 main Instagram account (username freeSOMETHING) + 10 promoter accounts (real looking people)
    Fiverr:
    Purchase followers/likes/comments - I will use addmefast, fiverr plus a private seller connection I have
    Purchase testimonials - Pay people to take pictures with SOMETHING, or make videos, claiming they got it free with my site! Photos I buy will also be used on Instagram by promoter account claiming they got it free
    Namecheap + Dreamhost - to purchase domain and hosting

    THAT'S IT!

    Wish me luck, I'm going to register the domain and build the site. I hope to be back with updates in a few days.

    I'm not into content locking and all that jazz but do you really think people are going to do survey's on a phone since instagram is pretty all mobile? Not bashing or anything, just want to hear your opinion

    I don't consider this bashing! I need outside perspectives and opinions!! Especially criticism.
    Anyways, if there's one thing I learned at BHW, it's never be surprised the lengths most people will go to get something free!
    Plus, I think it'd be easier to fulfill an offer on a phone than on a browser. Mobile offers are usually very simple, like download this hotels.com app or enter your phone number to receive a free ringtone. Much better than regular offers which require a credit card or lengthy survey completion.

    January 5 update.

    - Bought my domain -$10 (I already have hosting, so that's "free")
    - Bought FollowLiker Bot for Instagram and Twitter - $180
    - Bought Wordpress template - $35
    - Bought 4 Fiverr gigs, purchased testimonials - $20
    TOTAL INVESTMENT: $245

    Pretty hefty, but the bots will come in handy for other projects and future ones so I consider it a longterm investment.

    I setup the website and used AdWorkMedia to content lock.
    I've already had the bots running today for Instagram and Twitter and I've had one Lead today! A whopping $0.85!
    I'm using a content locking gateway.

    That's it for now! I'll be back with more soon!

    Got another conversion, $0.95. This is my first time trying content locking but I think I'm converting very well so far. I've had 7 leads and 2 clicks. Pretty good ratio if I can get good traffic. Although, the sample size is small.

    I got the Fiverr images, these will certainly help me convert, as it makes my site look legit.
    I'm using them to have people take pictures with the thing they got for free using my site. Of course, they must go through the content locker first to get access to this free thing.

    I've had the FollowLiker bots run for Instagram and Twitter. I've been replying to tweets relevant to my niche and then commenting on photos on Instagram in my niche.

    Hello coreyvf,

    How is your experiement doing so far after one month of operation?
    Also, how is your experience with FollowLike's Instagram Module? Do you have any issues/bugs/trouble with uploading images to Instagram with it? I'm asking because, this has been an issue with both Instagram bots, considering Instagram is really stricked about having people uploading photos from their mobile phone.

    Example of issues are: your photos do not appear in a tag search, when using a tag that's clearly attached to your photo. Thus, your photos are not coming up when someone performs a search. All this because the photo was not uploaded using a mobile phone. That's specially truth if you use popular tags.

    Also, do you keep track of the number of people clicking your website url link from your Instagram profile bio? If yes, what kind of results have you been able to see?

    As for the 10 promoter accounts, how are you using them exactly?

    thanks.
