    Hi guys,

    After reading a lot here in the Forum i have been inspired to start my Instagram Journey!

    Journey Scope:

    I have started with 30 accounts but 2 accounts were banned (due to some newbie mistakes!) at this point i am going to learn in the coming months about the success or failure of my journey, based on that i will scale it up or quit. I am believing if everything goes well i will scale it up to 100 accounts. I will test the waters for 3 months and then will choose accordingly.

    Journey Goals:

    31th: January 2016: 100k Followers (Globally)
    29th: February 16: 200k Followers (Globally)
    31th: March 2016: 300k Followers (Globally)

    In 31th March i will make a deep analysis in my IG Journey and then will make the best decision.

    Instagram Niches:

    I have tried to focus in some of the niches that i am more used to work with and if the Journey continues after march i will add more accounts only on these niches so i can do shoutouts with the main accounts so the smaller ones can grow faster.

    I am using the following Niches:

    FITNESS (6 accounts)
    DIY (2 accounts)
    WEIGHTLOSS (2 accounts)
    HOT GIRLS (5 accounts)
    HEALTH (1 account)
    FASHION (3 accounts)
    LUXURY (4 accounts)
    SPECIFIC PRODUCT (2 accounts)
    BEAUTY (3 accounts)

    Tools/Services used:

    1) Dedicated Server:

    I have already 1 server lying around for multiple projects based in VMware, so i have build 1 VPS with 8GB RAM/50GB DISK/4 Vcores.
    So far i am managing all the accounts like a charm using very low resources.

    I am using OVH since its the cheapest , very reliable (as long as you know how to manage the servers) and has a huge bandwidth (unlimited traffic). I am working with them with dedicated servers for more then 3 years so they are reliable.

    2) Proxies:

    My mindset here is very precise, if i am going to handle this journey as business model, i will need to have a strong business.So buying crappy proxies is not one of my ideas and that´s why i did an exhaustive analysis about the best proxies and probably hired one of the best services: SSL Private Proxies. I know there are many others but this was my decision and i believe so far it was a very good one.

    3) Software:

    As stated earlier my mindset is to have the best solution, that is the most robust and cost effective. So i understand many use Follow Liker but it lacks a lot in many sections if you want a specific product to cover everything i need. So i figured out MassPlanner is better not because it follows better then FL, but because i can accomplish all the tasks i require with a single software, PLUS the fact it comes also with access to manage different social networks, its a bit out of scope but since i have the possibility i also started using for Pinterest (just a few accounts).

    So i am using Mass Planner mainly for:

    - Follow/Unfollow
    - Publishing
    - Edit profiles
    - DM management

    I also decided to use this software because being a monthly subscription i feel more comfortable the authors will continue to update the bot. So far on every 2-3 days the bot receives updates and the support is Stelar. So i have subscribed the IG Version.

    Monetization:

    I have defined that i will only start monetizing lightly when i reach 10k-20k per account, because below that i will make pennies and will destroy the engagement ratio.

    I will monetize as follows:

    a) Shoutouts after reaching 10k-20k , but i will tend to be very selective in terms of the sponsored posts to be highly targeted to my audience and to my niche.

    b) When i reach 50k i will start 1 authority website per niche that should be huge. I have built one just to test it since start, but due to the fact being very time consuming or expensive i will need to have a big followers base to make it worth. The one i have built has around 50 articles mainly informational, guides, how-to, etc with a ratio of 5-10% of links for very specific products or CPA offers. In terms of dimension each article varies from 800 words up to 5000. So i am talking about premium authority sites, not crappy ones.

    c) When i reach 50k - 100k i will also analyze if it will worth or not to start selling accounts, the selling accounts model will be used to support the maintenance costs of Proxies , server, etc. So i am aiming to sell 2-3 accounts on every 6 months as long the value per account is great. If this model grows then i will be continuously building new accounts to cover the sold ones.

    Updates:

    I will try to update the status in a weekly Basis and will try to answer questions as regularly as i can.


    Below is the first update:

    About the banning:

    1 account was banned after starting following at 500 followers per day >>> my bad :) i should warmed the account first.
    1 Account was banned due to the fact one of the top accounts where i got the majority of the content reported me.

    So lesson learned :)

    About the settings, check the picture below.

    Good luck on your journey. I'm keen to know how the fashion / luxury is going as I'm struggling manually right now and want to use a bot but need to know safe settings etc.

    take a look if your account has not been suspended and requires to be password reset. MP does not inform you if the account requires to password reset. It only informs you if your account needs to be PVA

    I had one account with that issue in the beginning of my journey and when i browsed the account it required me to do a password reset.

    maybe that´s the issue.

    Luxury and Fashion don´t have a great Followers return rate, the worst one about 20% and the best one 30%, i have noticed that you need to choose the pictures really well, because decent pictures will sux in terms of followers following you. Another thing is about the sub-niche that you use, in Luxury i have 1 account that is quite generic and the remaining ones are focused in a specific topic , so the generic one get more followers then the others. Time will tell wich one will get more engagement ratio (likes and comments per picture).

    About fashion its really tricky because you need to get awesome pictures and for what i have seen IG does not have outstanding Fashion pictures and that´s why the following ratio in not that great.

    Another thing that i have found its about the Beauty niche, i have picked a very specific sub-niche that has a huge following ratio (>50%) that can be only compared with the hot girls niche. So you need to analyze a lot and start trying in specific sub-niches and i am quite sure that some of them are gold mines :)

    THe majority of the pictures i do research a lot inside IG and use 4kStogram to download the pictures from the accounts that i have short listed, then i do a manual check where i do remove the lousy ones and keep only the best pictures.

    In some cases i found some niches that require pictures from other sources, so i use Pinterest and Flickr, here the procedure is 100% manual so it takes quite time.

    but in the end i want to offer great value to my followers, that´s why i don´t mind to spent 1-2 days gathering pictures , that way i normally gather enough pictures for 3-4 months. Since i have multiple accounts in the same niche i share the same picture sets in a specific campaign to multiple destinations, where i don´t use the same pictures for different accounts.

    Keep up the great work, OP. I have 26 accounts running myself on MP, so I will definitely be following this thread.

    You can also use Scrapebox to scrape images from Google Images. Send me a PM and I'll scrape 1000 in your niche free of charge.

    Just some extra information, a few days ago i was searching for a good analytics of instagram where it could identify my audience so i can in the future to sell shoutouts or even specific offer to my exact audience, but if i cannot understand my audience i will never be able to send them the best offer.
    I found a premium service (that i am not affiliated with) that you can identify about everything about your accounts.

    This solution only be useful if you are doing shoutouts or offering CPA offers, giveaways where you will have a good ROI because its not cheap, but is a great tool to help people.

    i have gathered a demo account and will post a few screenshots so you can take a look about the detail of it.

    Its called demographics pro and can be used to Instagram and Twitter.

    Below are some screenshots
