It's been awhile since I've posted a method. It's not another magical method when someone bluff about making thousands. A similar method was previously posted, I'm just adding some twists and a touch of a spoonfeed to it... The only thing I can promise you here is - you will only make profits IF you will put some work and figure out what works the best for you. Make sure this topic is for educational purpose only.

Long story short, let's get to the basics.

Things needed:

- Instagram account. Just profile it, put few pictures, follows/followers not to look fake in general. You can use your personal Instagram, it doesn't really matter, just try to avoid blank accounts since they look fake.

- Instagram cloaker. Any cloaker that works with Instagram. It's needed to hide your CPA campaign from Instagram crawlers/spiders. Otherwise your domain will get flagged in minutes. AdvertSafe 2.0 works nicely. Also, you can get a free trial to make sure this method fits you in general. So basically no investment is needed to start with.

Just to mention I'm in no way affiliated with AdvertSafe 2.0 and you can use anything you like. It will work the same.

- Domain and hosting. Grab one on Namecheap.com or any other registrar you like. For domain name you can choose anything that fits your niche. For example I'm going to promote Sweepstakes (free giveaways such as iPhone X and other PPL sweeps offers) so I will pick something like freeprize.xyz (.xyz is only a 1$~ so you can save some money here too, it doesn't really matter if it's .xyz or .com since it will be only used for redirect)

- CPA offer or a smart link. I like smart links better because they have a combination of hundreds of different offers for your niche and plenty of countries & devices supported. So this way you don't need your own tracker and loads of hours wasted to create & optimize a smart link of your own.

Basic idea/what I'm going to do here?

1) I'm going to promote sweepstakes smart link from iMonetizeit (there is an official thread on the Blackhatworld.com). It's a combination of "get free iPhone X" and similar offers such as "free Amazon gift cards", etc. I bet you've seen these in the past. If not, it looks something like this:

If you don't feel comfortable with this type of CPA offers, try to apply your own twist and change the niche to e-commerce or product sales. What I simply know, sweepstakes and giveaways are as old as the internet, it was profitable back in the day and it will probably always be.

2) Since I have chosen my niche (sweepstakes) I'm going to create a cloaked .php file to avoid Instagram flagging my campaign (since it's CPA/affiliate link they block all of them, in general, it has nothing to do with the network or the landing page). In this example, I'm using AdvertSafe (once again this just example and you can use any service of your choice)

Once I have my campaign ready, just generate it, download .php file upload and upload to your hosting, root folder.

3) So the campaign is ready now and I need to get some traffic to start it rolling. I'm going to buy stories posts from big Instagram accounts (I prefer accounts with 1 million or more followers. Also check their videos and photos activities to make sure that account looks healthy and it's not loaded with fake followers). I like story posts because they have a "swipe up" links, that means if the user will swipe up, Instagram will instantly load your offer on the browser.

You can write down something like "memes" or any other niche in search and keep sending DMs/PMs to the owners of these pages with your business proposal. Your sample message may look like this:

"Hey, I really like your page and I would like to advertise on it. I have a really cool website for the giveaways and I would like to buy a story post with a swipe-up link. How much would it cost me? I will be waiting for your reply, thanks!

Write this down to as many pages as you like to negotiate a nice offer that seems fair to you. Just don't spam like crazy or you may get temp blocks - work smart. Here is an example of reply I've received. This page has 1 million+ followers which seems organic and active. This guy is offering me a 24 hours story post on his page for 30$ which will probably reach around 100k views/impressions (based on him). Seems like a nice deal to me since I will be getting around 2$ per free lead/registration. So this way I would only need 16 people to register or 16 leads, in general, to make this campaign profitable. Considering 100,000~ views I will get it seems reasonable.

4) Once we will negotiate the deal, I will need to send him a creative + my website URL/domain to make my story post live.

A quick tip - ask your story to be posted 5-6 PM US time. This way you will get a better reach.

What else do you need to know?

The Instagram story dimensions are 1080px by 1920px. What this means is that your video or photo will have to be 1080 pixels wide and 1920 pixels in height. Also known as an aspect ratio of 9:16. If you are really not good as a designer, you can always hire someone on Fiverr.com to create 1 creative for you. Or you can simply buy a mockup on https://graphicriver.net/search/instagram story

Here is the sample of the story post creative I'm going to use:

5) PROFIT??? ;)

So that's it. Some pages may perform worse than the other, so you have to find out what works the best for you. Also if you feel more comfortable with some other niches like dating/adult dating you can apply the same method with a twist, targeting babes pages and dating smart link, offers.

Enjoy your easy earnings!
 
Solid,but the problem comes when they ask you what are you publishing. I tried it with fornite but thye dont accept these kind of shotouts.

Im sure this works but you need to know someone who agrees to do it!

I think everyone is dead tired of these "fake game hacks". Sweepstakes are probably no better, but they look more official and I had some luck getting my campaigns live with no issues. Also you may try to create your own pre-lander, though, I was trying to keep this idea as simple as possible :)

Yeah you are right. These "Official Giveaways" have like x3 chance of get accepted.

Although I didn't try, I believe you can get some nice results with app installs (non-incent since they pay way more) and some e-commerce offers too.

Whats the thing about using a cloacker if isnt link in bio just link i shotout lol
Once anyone will make the very first click on your domain/redirect to CPA offer, your domain will be instantly flagged by Instagram crawlers so a second person will see a pop-up message that this URL may be unsafe - that's because of an affiliate link in general. If you will use the cloaker it will redirect Instagram spiders to a safe page so it will not get flagged and you will be able to use it for some time. Hope the explanation is good enough ;)

Safe page - is what Instagram crawlers will see, it can even be Google.com
Offer page - is what people will actually see

Please make sure, I'm explaining how you can use a cloaker, a someone else service from BHW marketplace I'm not affiliated with. And not how to "trick" Instagram in this case :)
Cloaking can be applied to any network, not Instagram specifically.

Nice purchase! I suggest using a smart link VS Ogads. Why? Because with smart links, you're promoting a NON INCENTIVE CPA offers. What means your payout will be slightly higher - and you will simply make more money. You don't need incentive offers for that, and Ogads only have ones for incentive traffic. Although Ogads is a cool network, use whatever you like better! ;)

Based on your experience, out of 100k impressions how many people will typically sign up?
