If you're going to start investing your time in Instagram for the start of 2019, hopefully this thread makes that process a lot less painful. These threads are (IMHO) the most helpful Instagram threads from 2018! I was hoping to make a top 10 post, but unfortunately there weren't that many threads that made the cut, plus I figured it was better to stick to threads that you'd actually read rather than posting 10 mediocre ones that you'd probably just skim. These threads are all jam packed with incredible content and I highly recommend you read every word if you're looking to jump start your Instagram success for 2019: 1. The Ultimate Guide to Instagram Marketing in 2018 This is a great high level guide on getting started with Instagram. It's filled with helpful diagrams and links to other resources that will aide you along the way. It includes everything from "picking a niche" to "monetization". This is a solid place to start if you're just getting into Instagram marketing. 2. [Guide] How to Bot on Instagram and Make Money @PolarPo created a great guide here. It's super helpful in thinking through your options for getting accounts set up, understanding what proxies to use, how to go about botting, etc. By the end of this thread you should have a solid overview of all of the terms that are discussed here in the Instagram section and be well on your way to getting started building up accounts on Instagram. 3. [METHOD] Using Hashtags for INSANE Automated Growth on Instagram This is a fantastic walkthrough by @Christian Lowe that will help you get an understanding of how to do hashtag research, scrape posts, and schedule posts. By the time you get to this post you'll most likely be itching for a tutorial on how to actually go about implementing the stuff that's been talked about so far - he doesn't disappoint! If you haven't done hashtag research or walked through scheduling posts this is a great guide to check out as well! 4. Instagram journey to 50,000 accounts botting Walk with @proxified through his journey as he continues throughout the year and answers nearly every question one could have about botting on Instagram. This is IMHO the best Instagram journey of 2018 (and potentially ever) so it made the list here. It's certainly worth flipping through the pages, though it may take you some time to make it through all 82... Cheers!
