    Hey guys, so I've been on this forum for awhile now. I wanted to try and venture off into the Instagram CPA world. So I'll get to the basics:

    1. Instagress setup completely related to my niche. Profile name, pics, and soon to be landing page.
    2. Started using Instagress for their trial. Instagress is so simple to utilize and get going, it is working fantastic. Ever since I tweaked the settings it ran for about 16 hours straight no probs.
    3. Stat wise: It's been going for about 35 hours in total. I just ran it 16 hours, no problems at all. Didn't write any stats down unfortunately but here they are:

    - Following: 791
    - Followers: 126
    - Average of 50-60 likes per photo
    - It comments just fine.

    Anyways, so far I really like Instagress. But I've seen some more recent posts that were negative towards the Instagram market itself. I have read these in the past and clearly wanted to stay away from my next target but it's really fucked me sometimes. Same with FL, it's cheaper than Instagress. But there's a lot of downsides lately it seems? Any knowledge on this? I know it's hard to pinpoint any specific answers considering they are all opinions, but it's better to gain knowledge from experienced users than just search Google for a 'decent' answer.

    PS - Do y'all feel like marketing with IG is going to start becoming more difficult?

    Depends on what your goals are. Starting from zero and spamming CPA offers on hundreds of accounts is becoming harder everyday, Instagram is really changing a lot right now. If you have a couple of big accounts you can still post a CPA offer targeted to your niche every now and then, but right now botting is almost only profitable if you're trying to grow a few accounts to sell shoutouts later. Selling shoutouts will most likely never die.

    It looks like Instagram has been cracking down on people botting lately. :x

    I just made the jump to FL today. Future plans would be to sell shout outs, drive traffic to gaming twitch/YouTube, Amazon affiliate links, personal merchandise, and maybe some other stuff if I think of it.

    Yeah, let me know how it is thamanz1... I've just been torn between all these reviews. I plan to build up my IG and send traffic from there to my actual blog, but once a week I plan on doing "giveaways" through CPA. That's where it's troublesome to me because I would like to have about 10k-20k organic followers that are related to my niche so that I've built trust up basically. I just don't know how exactly or when exactly IG decides to watch accounts.

    But if it all works out, I'll post a story about it.

    Try that method they guy was talking about on the front page with 1000 followers. I followed that and got a solid amount of people but I was too aggressive and got locked out, that is why I mentioned to just like a few recent pics of the people that liked the photo of your niche..

    Cannot relate to the people saying that botting dies slowly. If you have enough accounts you are very fine with FL.

    Difficult = less competition. ;)

    Those who take the time and persevere against IG's obstacles will reap tons of profits. ;)

    Can you find the link to that? Haven't been able to locate it. And here are some instagress results after running for about 45 mins before I originally published this post...
