    Hello dear people,

    so, i got an Instagram Bot, written by me, made out of iMacros, Batch and Java script. It has a friendly user interface, to use with iMacros, so it's not a normal iMacros script.
    I wanted to sell it, however i don't think that there will be many sold copies since the market is strong dominated.

    What would you suggest me to do with it, or how to monetize it?
    I know there is PPI, but i was looking for alternatives, since after the first installation, the reputation decreases due the installed malware that comes with the software.

    And yes it is an .exe file.

    Thanks for every advice.

    Are you still using it yourself? Why do you want to sell it?

    Instagram is hot at the moment so why not try to make it into an application and sell it on BHW? I think there are a lot of people looking for IG bots atm :)

    If it was only for myself, i wouldnt have added java and batch, i only needed iMacros for that ;)

    "Everybody" on BHW is already using followliker, and they are happy with it, so i dont see a chance ;)

    Well Followliker is +- 100$ and everybody is missing an option to target based on coordinates + range. If you can make that happen and set your price to 79$ you're set ;)

    What if you make it free only if the customer likes, shares and comments on 3 of your social media profiles. Then they can download the .exe file, monetize it that way ?

    Share to download is an old hat, however good for SEO but not to monetize it. In addition i don't have (except Instagram) any social accounts.

    You can mix InstallMonetizer into it, but if you'd alternatives try setting up a .bat and bundle it in there to open up a few windows or links.

    There is also donation as an option as well as putting .html redirects in the zip file for those who'll click on them and be taken to where you want them to go. (With Hosting or related affiliate links inside.)

    So it will still be PPI or some kind of CPA... However there has to be many people to download them, to get some money together.. I'm not talking here about 4 figures, but maybe between 2-3 figures..

    Give a free version and let them pay for the pro version.

    Already done that, but i need to limit the free version strongly, since the pro version is made out of 4 levels, and if i share 1 level, they already dont need the rest 3 (not a game, level is here the feature)
