    Hello my friends,

    First of all, I'm crystalwater. I am 18 years old and living in the Netherlands.

    Exactly 1 year ago I started 25 Instagram accounts. All about a different subject (for example: Ferraris, Porsches, Bentleys, ships, planes, healthy food, epic food, fitness and a lot more). Actually, I tried to build at least 1 account in every niche I could think of at that moment, except the funny/comedy niches. At this time I had zero knowledge about this stuff. So I reached to a forum member and asked if he could help me, he did and learned me everything he knew :)

    I was just experimenting at this time, I wanted to see how my accounts could grow and I really liked it. I made minimal 1 all-nighter every week and most of the other days I only slept as little as possible (which I still do) because I want to grow my shit (right now I'm building 30 more accounts in a really profitable niche which I have discovered overtime).

    But last year, after like 3 months, I started to think how to monetize my accounts. I decided that I want to try to sell handmade bracelets. I made a really cool concept about this which will (in my eyes) definitely gonna work. My parents, family, and friends think that I'm really stupid but I just don't give a fuck because I'm 100% sure this is gonna work. I did my research you know :).

    First of all, my accounts got a total of 800k followers with 10% engagement. I made for every single account at least 10 pictures with the bracelet around a wrist for that niche. So, for example: For the Ferrari account I just e-mailed took the train to some Ferrari dealerships and asked the people in the Ferrari dealerships if I could make some pictures with my bracelets around my wrist behind a Ferrari steering wheel... Mostly they said no because the cars are way to expensive and shit, but I just kept trying and trained almost my whole country to make for every account picture. I also have an account for Bentleys and Rolls-Royce. It was so F*cking hard to make pictures for this because these cars are expensive as hell and they didn't trust me or something :p But I just kept trying and now finally I got 10 pictures for every account. I absolutely loved to do this, because I had to force myself every time to do something impossible. I even went 1 time to a small airport and managed to get inside and make friends with the technical people. This was amazing because they opened some airplanes for me to make pictures!! Absolutely insane!!

    At this moment I'm building my website with wix.com (because I don't know shit about computers and this is really easy to use). When I'm done building this website I'm gonna start promoting my bracelets on every Instagram account I have. I want to post the 10 (promotional) pictures spread over 21 days and add a coupon code to receive a free extra strap by ordering (because they have exchangeable straps) (BTW I choose for this because I just don't want to fuck my accounts with shoutouts and other crap).

    I also have connected already some other Instagrammers with a few followers and asked if they want to promote my stuff if I give them a free bracelet. Some of them said yes, that's also really cool.

    Because I want to perfect everything it takes a lot of time... I'm working every day and night on my project. My parents are thinking that I go every day to school but I'm kicked off my school hahaha. I'm going every day to the library with my laptop to work :p Fuck school, it's bullshit. I don't want to live in this stupid system.

    But because of this, I didn't had any time to research facebook advertising. I've searched a bit on the forum but couldn't find some good stuff about advertising on facebook (except a post from somebody with 24 pdf files about some basic stuff in a mediafire file, I can't remember anymore who it was, but anyway, shout out to this guy). Does any of you guys maybe know some good tutorials or posts or guides or ebooks about advertising on facebook and maybe how to find a good targeted audience and shit? I want to know as much as possible :)

    Please don't bother me for my English. I'm not a native and I'm really really sleep deprived, way to tired to think of every sentence... Also never had an interest in school or something like video games (where most kids these days learn english from. I know a shawty from Ireland who is a native English speaker, she makes sure that my website and business e-mails are in correctly English ;)

    Looks like you got it all figured out! Wish the best of luck to you! Have you done any testing see if they sell, perhaps promote on one account and see if there is anything you can improve add or remove ready for the next 9 accounts :) anyway good luck!

    first thing ' YOU ARE CRAZY LIKE HELL"
    Nicely done . you have 800K sub, that cool, you can check out that how the big players on yout niche are earning money, check if you can do the similer or something batter
    1. amazon affiliate( amazon has penely of cool stuff and large quantity of regular stuff ) you can use that to earn a little
    2. sell photos . i knew you will have a lot and lot of.
    3 . you have IG base, it wil be easy for you to stand up a YT base, with that number of follower. Income from YT is regular, for long time .
    4 Promote other chennals , give shout out,you can start selling shout outs on shoutcart.
    5 promote stuff in your niche, find sponers related to your niche.
    6 promote click bank products .

    that all i can think of now. i am to insta , just got 2 channel with 100, 200 follower, i knew i am a bummber, i am planning to add more soon , as i stablize these channels.

    Hey! Sorry but I just don't like that kind of stuff. I am 100% sure that I can build this brand to something really really big. Get rich or die trying bro, I wish you the best with your accounts!

    This is just not right, you should not do this, you are mistaken hugely. You have only 18 years and you have no understanding of what is more important because you dont even have understanding of what is really what.
    You like it or not you are and will be part of this stupid system, either way.


    Try change this for your own sake.

    Follow @fitlife_fashion to get an idea how they market their bracelets on IG. You can just apply this to your other markets. Start at IG (for free) then expand into FB once you've started selling.
