    Hello all, long time lurker checking in.

    I have read about methods on this site for a long time but upon recently graduating college and having some time on my hands, I finally decided to put them to use.

    Yesterday I created 5 IG accounts and a high converting landing page that leads to OGads offers hosted on a Digital Ocean VPS (5/month plan) with a free .tk domain. My accounts are following/liking/and posting images with 1000's of potential random captions based on an instagram-API project I found on github and a modified instabot.py as has been mentioned here before. These scripts are running and restarting via cron jobs to account for crashes on a raspberry pi. Any time an account needs phone verification, an email is immediately sent with the IP of the account so I can take care of it (will be used when I start using proxies tomorrow).

    So far: 5 conversions on OGads ($1.32) after the accounts have been running for about 16 hours.

    Plans for improvement: SCALE, SCALE, SCALE! I have been researching private proxy sources and am looking for one that allows me to upscale progressively as I go (add and pay for a new proxy only when I need it). I will also be looking into different niches, implementing different landing pages, and looking for the best tags to follow for the most responsive users and followers.

    I am also working on a script that imports account data from my accounts into excel for analytic purposes.

    I will update you guys as I go along. Thanks for the great community here and keep working!

    I just had one laying around from a university project and decided it'd be the cheapest way to host my scripts 24/7 considering it barely uses any power. I had used an Amazon EC2 Linux instance in the past but didn't find it as stable
