    Hi all,

    I'm about to dive into the IG realm of IM, and I've read quite a bit about it here. I'm not looking for a churn and burn OGAds style campaign though. I'm going to grow 5 accounts by automating with MassPlanner, but seeking some advice:

    Since I'm only going to use 5 accounts (the max allowed by instagram) should I even worry about proxies at all? I'll be botting as naturally as possible, and if they get hit with phone verification I can easily do that. I figure if I end up wanting more accounts I can just proxy those out.

    Thoughts?

    If you don't post on all those 5 accounts at the same time, I shouldn't worry that much.

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah I'll be posting at different times for sure per account. I need to look over the features in MassPlanner when I get home though to see if I can control the accounts following/liking individually. I don't want them doing anything at the same time.

    What is your endgame? Selling shoutouts at high follower count? A product?

    I currently only have one account, but since instagram has that limit, if I were you I wouldn't worry much about proxies.

    I'll eventually push related products. Maybe shoutouts but I kind of feel like those devalue the account a bit. Will need to read more on that before doing anything, but I'll have plenty of time while I wait for the accounts to grow.

    Focus on the accounts growth first, and then on monetize the account. Focus on getting your first 10k followers and try to learn something from it.

    My account reached 100k followers today and I haven't monetized it yet. I'll start working on it in the next days but first I need a plan (although I already know what I'll try) :)

    How long did it take you and you spend money on it? Buying shoutouts and such?

    Around 2 months and using my own method. If everything goes well I'll reach 200k by the end of this month.

    That's the plan. All I want at first is to establish a brand for each account. I'm in it for the marathon...not a quick buck. I don't want to push poor offers out there either. I have a good plan for monetizing via products, but I know that's not something in the near future.

    Just standard creation. Instagram allows you to make an account and then add 4 more within its own options.

    Hey

    If your only growing 5 accounts to start off you'll be fine without proxies tbh, just make sure you stay a little lower on the limits though because even though instagram allows 5 accounts per device that doesn't mean they are thinking all 5 accounts on one device will be following,liking, etc. in the hundreds daily.

    Overall you will be fine 5 accounts is a good way to start and tbh building niche authority accounts is the best route to go with Instagram for the Long term!

    Thanks man I appreciate the reply. Yeah I know I'll need to be a bit careful. I'll probably start with two at first so I can focus on following/liking/commenting and quality posts. Once I get them going and queued up for content I'll probably start more from there.

    As mentioned above, you don't really need proxies to use the 5 accounts you're planning to work on in the long term. Just be a little careful, stay under the radar, do NOT follow/unfollow too much and you would be good to go.
