    As many of the newbies around here, I have been lurking and reading for a while now. I don't even remember how I stumbled onto this site but I'm so thankful I did. Can't find any other community that compares. With that said, I have read dozens of threads with methods on how to make money and everytime I want to do something I back off just because I feel like I couldn't do it or follow through with it or get accepted into a CPA, whatever the case may be something always kept me away.

    But then you stumble onto those threads where people post how much they are making and it just makes you feel like an ass for not even making the attempt right? Welp, I figured it's time for me to "take action" and what better then to start with this whole Instagram craze. I found a bot that has rave reviews on BHW and I'm hoping to scrape for proxies rather then buy them right off the bat since the bot itself is going to set me back (already broke, kind of why I find the need to take action now, 5 kids and a lovely wife means 7 mouths to feed!).

    It's a pretty basic approach I guess and I'm not trying to make 1000 in a month or anything, like you all say, it takes time and effort and just have to take it day by day. So I would like to set my goal to at least $100 in my first month in attempting this. Anywhoot, I just plan to use the bot, make a bunch of accounts, watermark all of the images and use clickbank for the offers.

    The only part I get stuck on is if I should use my own little bit.ly service to mask the affiliate url's rather then purchase separate domains to use as the watermark. It would be a small enough and easy enough url to put in vs. an actual domain so I don't see why not, but then again would I put in a bit.ly url from an image? I don't know maybe someone has feedback on that?

    I hope to update this thread as more serious updates occur, it's more or less a personal thread to monitor my own successes or failures and to give me the motivation to keep going, because I don't think I'll ever take the plunge. I just keep reading about different methods and my mind is all over the place.

    I can't wait to hear any feedback, comments and even criticism. I welcome and thank all of those who post any sort of responses.

    Off to purchase the bot and scrape some proxies for now... Let's see how this works out....

    I would recommend you purchase a domain, or at least use a free one(co.cc) - It makes your link look more legit. You will also need to cloak your links to avoid ghosting, which bit.ly cannot do. Try different methods of promoting, find the one that makes YOU money and scale it up BIGTIME! Make sure to add your own twist when promoting on instagram, that will give you the best results.

    I'm having the same issue with the CPA which is why I'm trying my luck with click bank. I'm just hoping it converts well on IG...

    No. Not promoting any CPA offers. Using it to redirect traffic to my fan page where I get likes. Also, Redirecting traffic to my meme site.

    So with a very small scale operation so far, and about 10 mins of actual work I may have found a decent method that made me 3.50. I know it isn't much but this is my first time earning in IM, so I'm jumping around like a little school girl. Now to go keep tinkering around and get to the big guy status.

    I friggin love this place...

    Great news. Even $3 is mor than $0.

    Just a bit of a warning though; some networks do not accept traffic from Instagram. They will cut you off. Confirm with your network first.

    Keep it going!

    Just updating for my own logs I guess and to let people know who are doubting Instagram that yes it is possible to make money in time. I went from 3 a day to about 10.50 a day now on average and about to switch up methods. I know there are people out there making thousands per day but anyone who is new and feeling discouraged by not making anything a week into botting, set achievable goals for yourself and make them happen. It takes time. TBH All it takes is a few hours a day to tinker and test, you'll make a few bucks and get hooked and it'll go from there. Plus it's always a good feeling to be at work check your stats and see that the lunch you just bought was paid for. Of course eventually I want to make thousands per day and I won't give up until I do be it IG or something else, but this is a start. As they say, Rome was not built in a day.

    Take it slow and have fun! Thanks to knopper for posting an awesome method that's simple to implement, xgram guys and all their clients awesome community awesome people. And everyone else who shares ways to help newbies like myself begin their adventures into IM. With that said sorry to bump the thread just wanted to share.

    Have a great day everyone! Lets make some money!

    Ok so I have been using Botstagram for a few weeks and I currently have about 15 accounts with roughly 5k followers each. I am getting about 750 hits a day to my domain that I bought, that is redirecting to a mobile offer from offermobi. Just started with them and no conversions yet. I tried commissionjunction for a week and with over 4,000 clicks not 1 conversion?? What am I doing wrong here? Any help would be appreciated as I am trying to find something that works before I dump some $$$ and scale up big time

    Hey,

    Just because you drive in the traffic doesn't mean that it'll convert. You have to offer them something of value - people don't just give up their emails or money for nothing valuable in return.

    Ask yourself this: "If I was a customer visiting this page, that would cause me to give away my contact info, or more importantly, MY MONEY to this website?"

    You'll find that once you learn this, it's easier to make money with less traffic.

    Btw, I'm working under the assumption that you're using targeted traffic techniques, because if you're going after broad users, then that may be another reason why you're not converting.

    Hope that helps!
