    INTRODUCTION

    Hey there!

    This is not my first journey, all the others have been disappointing since I never finished them. Let's see if this one is different. That's why I'm putting a low goal to reach so I don't get unmotivated and give up.

    I'm still testing Instagram, how it works, trying to use their API, etc.

    GOAL

    I started using Instagram yesterday and my goal is to earn at least $1/day using CPA offers (app installs - OGmobi).

    NICHE

    I'm testing a niche and if after a week I don't get the desired results, I'll change my niche. This testing phase will end at 8 March, 2015.

    METHOD

    My strategy/method will be the following: I'll create a main account. With that account I will follow others, like photos and comment. None of those actions will go higher than 100 because I don't want my main account to be banned.

    I'll create other accounts and these will behave differently. They will only comment on other's photos and tag my main account like "This account is giving free oranges, go check its profile @username". I'll try to spin my comments so they don't get ghosted, banned or whatever. I won't use these accounts to follow, only comment and like photos maybe.

    AUTOMATE ACCOUNTS/SCALE UP

    I'll use Instagram API to automate things as I create more accounts. I'll do this with all accounts but not with my main account. I'll automate the comment posting and maybe likes too.

    Let's do this!!!

    If I reach this low amount, I'll create another journey with a higher goal. :)

    This is like an experiment. ;)

    Yeah, I want to bot/automate comments and likes using Instagram API. If you don't know what an API is, google it.

    UPDATE TIME!!!

    [​IMG]

    ➤ Not bad for my second day! :) Let's see if I can get a conversion today...
    ➤ Impressions are still low because the account is still new.
    ➤ I used addmefast to get some followers and have a good start, 100 of them, so more than half of my followers are fake/inactive users. Won't be using addmefast again since I don't need it.
    ➤ I'll try to create 5 accounts per day and if possible even more. I'll create all accounts by hand, confirm them with phone, put profile picture, etc.

    oh sorry, I don't want to steal your niche :), I just want to know you're doing bh or wh niche. I want to start monetizing on instagram by using wh niche but do not know where to start :(
    I just search for some hashtag like arianagrande and saw some guys use clash of clans and hack niche. It like scamming people :p

    I guess my niche is a bh niche yet I'm giving my followers what they are looking for.

    I also had that trouble of finding a niche. After some time thinking I already got 4 ideas, one of them I'm using right now. I wouldn't know, for example, how to monetize a cars page. Not with CPA I suppose, maybe with a website and adsense.

    There is always the choice of selling shoutouts yet I don't have any experience with that (yet).

    Update time!

    [​IMG]

    ➤ Yesterday I didn't work on my account (no followers, no posts, etc).
    ➤ Even without any work I had one lead which is quite strange since I didn't promote my account. lol
    ➤ I created 5 accounts which took me a long time. I'll try to create 5 more today.
    ➤ Those 5 accounts are ready to comment (email verified, phone verified, profile with image and name).
    ➤ Lost a few followers, yet I don't mind.
    ➤ I also worked on Instagram API to discover at the end of the day that I can't comment with it. This is taken from the API page: "The ability to POST a comment on a media object is restricted to applications that offer business services and not consumer facing apps." Fortunately, I already found a way to use Instagram API indirectly so I am able to post, like, follow, etc without any problems. :)
    ➤ Today I'll put the new accounts in action, and each of them will make some comments. I want to see if, by commenting, my followers will increase, so I won't follow anyone neither like posts with my main account today.

    Satelite accounts? What do you mean?

    I'm also curious to see how far I can go. :)

    Well, since you are new, perhaps you need to have 15 posts to open a thread in this section. That's the requirement to send private messages so I assume it is related.

    Even though the financial goal of this journey is more than just small the concept is interesting.

    Good Luck!

    ➤ Yesterday I didn't have much time to dedicate to my journey so I didn't earn nothing. Today's the first day of this month and I want to dedicate 100% in order to reach my goal till the end of the month. :)
    ➤ Since yesterday I didn't create more accounts, today I need to create at least 10 more.
    ➤ I'll start using the other accounts today to comment.

    I think you should invest on a Instagram bot! Good luck!
