Hey Everyone, before I begin to explain my journey I just want to thank every single one of my BHW Brothers and Sisters for helping me become the IM I am today. I have been lurking for sometime and I find myself here on BHW more than any other site. This journey is going to be continuously updated and hopefully will motivate newbies to get into social media. The Run Down: I will be creating and growing 5 Instagram accounts. Although, compared to most who generally do not continuously update their ventures. I hope I can keep this Journey updated for over a year. So one can truly see in this day and age of Facebookstagam how much one can grown an instagram account. My Ingredients - Windows VPS (specs 1GB RAM, 1 vCore CPU, 20GB SAS storage) - 5 PVA instagram accounts - 5 Virgin Private Instagram Proxies - Followliker - Instagram massplanner Recipe 1) The first thing I did was set up my PVA accounts with my proxies on massplanner. (edited bio, Username, Pro pic) 2) Loaded my accounts up into followliker. Word of advice when adding proxies to followliker. Put them in this form -> 192.xx.xxx.xxort#:AdminW 3) I got pictures 4-6 pics per account uploaded with the helps of followliker. 4) Found accounts in my niche so I can follow their followers 5) I believe I am going to follow roughly 200 people a day per account.. ONLY FOLLOW.. liking, commenting is a bit to riskay for myself Oh yes, I forgot.. I also put followliker on my vps. Alright people here is what I am going to do. I am going to continue to follow on all the accounts until I reach say 3,500 following. I also may look into purchasing fake followers. Just to increase my follow back rate. (popular person follows, why not follow them back. ) GOALS 1) Reach 3.5k real followers on each account in one months time. I believe it is very achievable. 2) Upload rich content daily (1-2 pics) to continue interaction with followers. This helps with the snowball effect as I like to call it. Once you get to a certain number of followers. It only takes engaging post to easily gain more. 3) Keep all the accounts in good health. MY STATS (1/16/16) Account 1 | Followers 249 | Following 462 | Account 2 | Followers 252 | Following 405 | Account 3 | Followers 0 | Following 1 | Account 4 | Followers 0 | Following 1 | Account 5 | Followers 0 | Following 1 | The point of this thread/journey is for me to help people get into Instagram and to answer general questions here. I have managed Instagram accounts from 50k-750k. Although I sold off my Instagram Real Estate months ago to fund my eBay iPhone venture. Always remember the first step to IM is taking initiative and action.
