    Hey hey, it's your boy Kiwi.

    You might remember me from my first appearance here at BHW almost a year ago with this thread, where you could follow my journey as a newbie in IM as I was learning how to grow an Instagram Account and how to monetize it. It took me a whole bunch of trial and error until I 8 months later made my first dollar from IG and even my first dollar online... EVER. It was a great step for me, and as soon as I saw my first dollars in my bank account my mindset changed and my horizon broadened.

    IN THIS THREAD YOU CAN FOLLOW MY JOURNEY THROUGH MY...

    • Dropshipping Adventure with Shopify, solely marketed with IG.
      • How I develop it and dip my toe into the Facebook Water...
    • My CPI Adventure with IG + OGAds
    • How I use FollowLiker to grow my accounts
      • What settings I use and how that works etc.
    Let's get this party started with some data, because everyone loves data, right? As I mentioned in the description I both have a Shopify Store and work with CPI through OGAds. Both are fairly new, the Shopify Store a month old and the OGAds account 4 days old.

    On Shopify I have just paid off all the expenses and at the moment I'm +$42.
    The IG account (Account 1) that I'm marketing with has 17.3k followers at this very moment.

    On OGAds I've just reached the +$10 mark.
    The IG account (Account 2) for this niche has ~280 followers.

    This gives me a total income of: $52

    My keyword at this moment is SCALE SCALE SCALE. I got 2 great opportunities which both can be scaled a lot, so now it's time to spend my time wisely and grow my businesses right.

    I hope this too becomes a great read for you guys, and I'll do my best to make it as filled with great and valuable content as possible.


    Lez go.

    Update

    Hi peeps. I've just submitted this thread. It's pretty late and I'd really like to get my workout done before heading to bed, but I'd also like to share some information about the IG + OGAds thingy I've got running. :p

    1. First I applied for the OGAds membership.
      It was an easy form where I basically just described my idea of IG + CPI.
    2. While waiting for the approval I picked my niche...
    3. ...picked one of my old IG-accounts and pimped it up to match the niche that I'd chosen...
      The reason why it is important to go for older accounts is because they don't get banned that easy. I'll share my FL settings with you in just a second, and I'm assured that most of you will start writing about how dangerous those settings are... But more about that later.
    4. Then I created a landing page...
      At this point I got approved by OGAds
    5. So I created a content locker and prioritized CPI, locked the LP...
    6. and placed it in the Bio of the IG Account.
    7. Last but not least I placed the IG Account into FollowLiker and started the follow/like process.

      These are my FL Settings:
      general.png heroesofthestore_4.png heroesofthestore_5.png heroesofthestore_7.png
    I wish I could explain to you why this really works, but I don't really know for sure. The accounts are old and I've warmed them up by running on slow settings at first and then sped things up as time went.


    Cheers,
    - Kiwi

    good luck with it, take it easy with the ig account till you reach 20-30k and they're a few months old then you can go more aggressive, keep to it and it will work ;)

    You are so welcome man! If you've just started out I recommend you to start slower with maybe 400-600 follows instead and then, just as a slinky, you first move the cap higher (400-800) and then you follow along with the other end (600-800). Rinse and repeat until you reach your prefered rate :)


    Thank you man! I'll do my best to keep the posts coming :)

    Cheers!

    UPDATE

    Sunny day today. Competed in a Beach Volleyball Tournament and ended up taking home the bronze medal. Sadly there was only prize money for the winner :p Took all day, and therefore I haven't had time doing something else.

    Still just as great to get home to this:

    leaving me with 2 more dollars to the bank account while messing around at the beach ;)

    Total income: $54

    Looks good with some results, but those settings are sooooo risky, 8-14 delay is way too short and your limits are too high!

    I know right?? But in some magic way I've never encountered any ban what so ever? I have no clue why this works, but it does.

    If I should lower them just for the sake of being careful, what do you consider good settings that are as high as they can get and still stay safe?

    I mean, depending on age and authority of account, I stay between 400-750 follows/day, 400 for newer accs and 750 for accounts atleast 6+ months old.
    Also, delays should be much higher, 60+ secs is safe.

    UPDATE

    Yet another day without any work on neither the CPA or the Online Store. I got a temporary graphic design job at an ice cream kiosk and spent my day working with designing menus and such. Earned a good amount, but won't include it in the IM Income.

    Just checked OGAds, and still the 1 Account that I have promoting offers is doing a hell of a job:
    upload_2016-7-22_0-22-51.png

    I'm going to keep doing this and see how solid it can become, and then I'll create a new IG Account and duplicate for x2 the earnings!



    Total income: $57.70
