    Hi Everyone,

    Let's get straight into it:


    Who am I?
    I'm a 26 year old guy from Australia that graduated Uni in 2012 and started IM in 2014 as a result of a full time job that I absolutely hated.

    I quit that job at the beginning of the year after realising that I was no longer happy (which is the most important thing for me) and used my affiliate earnings from IG as a safety net while I searched for a new one.

    I decided to create this journey so that my mistakes (yes, there will be many to learn from) are publicly announced and hopefully I can get some input from the awesome people that inhabit BHW.


    What I do currently:
    I now have a different full time day job (Mon-Fri) and I absolutely love it.
    I am still selling affiliate products to my IG followers where I have built a following of over 700k.


    Why I'm not just scaling my current methods:
    Because this takes too much of my time. Like I said, I have a great full time job and unlike most people, I actually enjoy going to it every day. Having this job means that I don't have the time required to correctly manage my affiliate income streams any further then what I currently am.

    Instead, my aim for this journey is to make it as "set and forget" as possible with only the occasional intervention when required (PV, link changes etc).


    Tools/Resources that I will be using:
    - Followliker Instagram Edition.
    - My own sim cards.
    - My own domains.
    - 4k Stogram.
    - JustChillin's MD5 Changer.
    - Private Proxies.
    - My own picture sorter + caption generator.


    My Niche:
    This is private. Simply because I don't want to share it. Please be respectful of this :).
    (P.S. For those that are struggling to find a niche, it really isn't hard. I have found over the last 2 years that you can make money on IG using literally almost any niche. Think of something that you like, guaranteed others will like it too).


    My Method:
    You can view the base concept of my method here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/method-make-easy-50-day-using-instagram.874297/

    Shoutout to Cryogenesis for this one.

    Note: I have a few of my own twists that I'm hoping will separate me from the hundreds of people that are probably now trying this. This includes not using OGAds for this particular journey (Don't worry OGAds, I still love you and I do use you in my other campaigns).

    Goals for this week:
    - Purchase Non-PVA accounts.
    - Setup Web 2.0 prelanders.
    - Scrape/Sort pictures into pools of images (I don't want to be uploading the same pics on separate accounts).
    - Scrape comments and associate them with each image as captions.
    - Begin warming up accounts.

    I plan to start slow until I am confident with my niche choice, account survival etc.

    Feel free to ask any questions or leave some advice. Thanks for reading along!

    How much you pay for proxy, how many per account, and from where do you buy ?
    How many instagram accs you use ? For start you use aged accounts or new accs ? (where do you buy)

    Keep it up !

    I haven't purchased yet but here is the plan:
    - I have always used SSL Private Proxy and never had any problems. (Yes they are expensive but worth it imo).
    - I will use 1 account per proxy.
    - Thinking about getting accounts from accs123 and will be starting with 5 to test.
    - Will be buying aged accounts.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    I think many of us can relate to this.

    I've started a similar journey a few days ago but with MP.
    Can you give more details on the set and forget part ? How will you bring traffic if the acc are inactive ?

    Good luck!

    Goodluck with your journey mate. Hopefully we can learn a few things from each other.

    By set and forget I simply mean that I want to prepare the accounts in followliker with photo sources/captions and settings that allow me to add it to Followliker, hit start, and forget about it while it follows/likes; rather than constantly preparing photos, captions, changing settings etc.

    Previous methods that I have used involve interacting with followers, choosing high quality trending photos etc.

    Thanks guys.

    After doing some research it is becoming more and more likely that i will be creating the accounts myself. That way they can be created on my proxies and avoid the initial proxy change flag.

    Anybody had experience with this? Is it worth creating them myself?

    UPDATE 1: PREPPING THE OVEN
    Achievements:
    - Purchased 5 Non-PVA accounts from accs123 (Started with just 5 so that I can prove to myself that I can keep them alive + monetize them effectively before fully investing).
    - Purchased 10 Private Proxies (smallest package that squid offered).
    - Purchased 5 Sim Cards.

    I started one account in Followliker and it immediately asked me to verify the account via email. Luckily Followliker has come a long way and I can use the "Open In Browser" option to do this quickly.

    While I was in there I decided to Phone verify the account also - worked like a charm!

    Going to run the 1 account for tonight with extremely low settings. If it survives overnight then I will start the the other 4 tomorrow.

    Goals for tonight:
    - Scrape images + comments for all accounts.
    - Change MD5 of all images.
    - Prepare BIOs for all accounts.
    - Keep accounts alive.

    Investment/Profit:
    Accounts: $6
    Proxies: $16.50
    Sims: $5

    Total: $27.50
    Profit: -$27.50

    UPDATE 2: VERIFIED AND PROFILED
    Achievements:
    - Purchased 5 more Non-PVA accounts from accs123.
    - Purchased 5 more Sim Cards.
    - Email, Phone Verified and Profiled all 10 accounts. I can do this in about ~5 minutes/account so adding 10 accounts per hour is achievable.

    All accounts are now warming up in Follow Liker and I have had 0 issues so far. I'm interested to see what happens once I start adding links.

    I have also spent a fair bit of time researching legitimate niches (no fake stuff like free followers, game hacks etc). I want to deliver value to those that complete an offer to avoid reports.

    I have one niche that I have already created a web 2.0 pre-lander for. Will copy this a few times and adjust it slightly to avoid Instagram linking the HTML.

    Still to do:
    - Scrape Images + change MD5.
    - Create 10 separate web 2.0s and come up with 2 more niches (going to try to have 3 accounts per niche to begin split testing).

    Investment/Profit:
    Accounts: $12
    Proxies: $16.50
    Sims: $10

    Total: $38.50
    Profit: -$38.50
