    Somehow I got it in my head that controlling 1000 Instagram accounts would yield me some special powers :)

    Now is there anyone on here actually running 1000 or more accounts for a reasonable cost per month?

    I don't want to be spending $1000 dollars a month just yet :)

    1000 is a lot of trouble ..... you need around 250 insta proxies for that and a lot of time.

    the price is 79 on proxy million not a 1000 you mentioned

    you can but even if its all automated that's still a lot of work and money invested not just on proxy's but more as well.

    I have 100 that Im building and its super tough I even hired a VA and still find that it takes lots of time. SO building 1000 is almost possible but not plausible. 1 high engagement IG is worth 20-50-100 that yield no engagement ( food for thought )

    It's not just the proxy costs. You'd need 1k accs, phone numbers too, if not PVAs. If you use a webtool, there will be monthly costs. If you want to run a standalone tool, you'd need to buy the tool, what you can't really run on your machine, so you'll need a VPS, which can take the load of 1k accs. If you want to monetize, more than likely you would need domains, that $1k is not really far-fetched, if you add up everything, it might not be enough even. Sure thing when you have everything set up (and your accs/domains don't get banned), the monthly costs decrease, but until then running 1k accs requires quite a bit of investment.

    not to rain on your parade, but if you consider managing 1000 accounts an achievement, you are off to a wrong start.
    if you can start with 5 accounts, and consistently make $5/day, then you think about upping the ante.

    I must say @txholdem is right. Use a single account - test test test, find out what works best, optimize and squeeze out as much juice as possible.
    After you've cracked it down , time to scale up and go big :

    1. PVA accs
    2.Proxies
    3.Automation Software
    4.Custom Landing page
    5. Auto responders ( if you want to, or if the offer allows you to )
    6.VPS ideally.
    7. LOTS OF TIME to setup :) - then set and forget! ( kinda :D )

    I just ballparked the 1k figure, I assumed there was someone else with a crazy thought and did just that.

    my angle is not so much earning from one IG account, but the power to give 1000 follows/likes/whatevers in an instant

    many are selling close to 100k IG likes/followers. some on the forum talked about 1000s of PV PER DAY.
    if you think 1000 accounts is 'power', think again :)

    About 1k accounts should be doable, using the right tools and experience, it does take alot of time to manage and grow them though.

    Currently managing ~300, gonna increase it up to 500-600.

    The biggest guy I know handled over 2k.
    I personally never had more than 700, costs are somewhere to $400-500 per month

    EDIT: Don't get on things like this if you dont have a serious budget, otherwise you will lose all your money.
    @txholdem is right with what he said :)

    Believe it or not but i will have salesthread on bhw soon for instant ig like.

    I dont think proxies are matter. You can see instagress. They have lot of clients but im sure they only use like 1-2k proxies max.

    you bunch of negative nancys. I used to run a thousand accounts at a time. Did it for years. You don't need 250 proxies! You need like a thousand. Once you are at that level, you are getting mad proxies in the same subnet, they are gettng wise to you, and entire ranges will be left useless. You will wake up one day and find that your army of 1,000 accounts is now a small rag tag band of 73 accounts. You will have that day over and over, sometimes after two weeks, sometimes not for 3 months. But one thing is for sure, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE THOSE DAYS. Just try really really hard not to kill yourself when it does happen, I know it seems like the easier alternative to rebuilding that once mighty nation of instagram accounts, but they must be restored to glory, otherwise you cannot sit on your ass and make money doing nothing anymore. So sayeth the prophecy.
