    Hello everyone :p

    As you can see on the thread title I'm going to start my first Instagram journey (well my first journey ever).
    I've been reading on the forum for a long time, but I never got in action, so here I am.

    What I'm planning to do
    • Grow some IG accounts using my own IG BOT
    • Once I have some decent grown accounts (if I reach it) I'll have to look for the best way to monetize them.

    What I already did
    • Got 4 accounts (I had one that I've been using it to test my bot when finished coding it, and the other 3 are +3 months old)
    • Configured my settings for the bot (max. follows/unfollows/likes... and working time plan, when to follow/unfollow)
    • My IG Bot need always a PC working so I bought a Windows VPS

    What I have to do next
    • I'll keep adding accounts periodically based on what niche is working better for me

    Here are the accounts right now

    Account 1 -
    387 Followers
    Account 2 - 83 Followers
    Account 3 - 12 Followers
    Account 4 - 7 Followers

    TOTAL: 489 Followers

    Right now I don't expect too much, I'm motivitated and I'll keep with the journey for a long time and see if it works and see if get something out of that.

    I will try to update the thread every day for you to follow it if you wish to and for me to keep tracking how's going.

    If you have any questions and suggestions (for a newbie like me) feel free to post them or message me.

     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    UPDATE 1

    ACCOUNTS


    Account 1 - 400 Followers
    Account 2 - 128 Followers
    Account 3 - 39 Followers
    Account 4 - BANNED (I don't know why.. I'll replace it today and add one more account)

    TOTAL: 567 Followers

    What I have to improve/do
    • I have to improve and write the best hastags for the posts
    • Organize and schudle the accounts posts
    • Add more accounts and keep testing different IGBot settings

    COMMENTS

    Well I don't know if it's the first day, but I got less followers than I expected to earn, I'll improve every day to try to beat the day before.

    Feel free to ask any question or contribute with a suggestion, I'll appreciate it. :)

    UPDATE 2 (Today was unfollow day, so the accounts were almost all the time unfollowing.)

    ACCOUNTS

    Account 1 - 402 Followers
    Account 2 - 135 Followers
    Account
    3 - 46 Followers
    Account 4 - BANNED
    Account 5 - 10 Followers (NEW)
    Account 6 - 2 Followers (Last Added NEW)

    TOTAL: 613 Followers



    What I have to improve/do
    • Look to improve my Bot setting, some accounts are reaching the max. intereactions too fast.

    COMMENTS

    As I mentioned before today was unfollow day, and the accounts were all the time unfollowing, I've added 2 new accounts in different niches.
    Also I started looking for offers on OGAds to start planning how Im going to monetize them, but for the moment (and i think it's normal), the accounts are growing slow but they have a pretty nice engagement rates (likes, comments..) for the followers they have.

    Feel free to ask any question or contribute with a suggestion, I'll appreciate it. :)

    UPDATE 3

    ACCOUNTS

    Account 1 - 405 Followers (I don't know what is happening with this account, but it stoped growing..)
    Account
    2 - 165 Followers
    Account 3 - 71 Followers
    Account 4 - BANNED
    Account 5 - 56 Followers
    Account 6 - 20 Followers

    TOTAL: 717 Followers


    What I have to improve/do
    • Look what is happening with the account number 1, and add 1or2 new accounts.
    COMMENTS

    Well today was the best day so far, I'm happy for the accounts that are growing everyday, but I'm a little bit confused about Account 1 and Account 6, this two accounts are growing slowly, maybe it's the niche, or maybe the hastags I'm use are not the best and im not targeting correctly, I'll check it soon.

    Feel free to ask any question or contribute with a suggestion, I'll appreciate it. :)

    Hey, Thanks for making this journey. It is motivating for me.

    I have some questions if you could answer?

    1. Where do you buy the accounts from?

    2. Where do you buy proxies from? (Dedicated/Semi)?

    3. What monetization method are you going to use?

    4. How do you scale your account? I mean, How do you increase your traffic/followers?

    Thanks.

    UPDATE 4

    ACCOUNTS


    Account 1 - 420 Followers (It seems that is starting to grow again)
    Account 2 - 190 Followers
    Account 3 - 88 Followers
    Account 4 - BANNED
    Account 5 - 69 Followers
    Account 6 - 41 Followers (It seems that is starting to grow a little bit too)
    TOTAL: 808 Followers

    COMMENTS

    The accounts stayed for one day without botting, due to prevent bans or blocks, tomorrow is going to be unfollow day, I hope to arrive to 1000 Total FW on the next day or 2 days.

    Feel free to ask any question or contribute with a suggestion, I'll appreciate it. :)

    Oh sorry I forgot about it :S

    1. Where do you buy the accounts from?

    1. I had my own accounts. I created them few months ago, so my accounts are just +3 months old aprox.

    2. Where do you buy proxies from? (Dedicated/Semi)?
    2. I bought the proxies on buyproxies.io, not for anything special, it was not my first time buying proxies there and they have a pretty nice customer service.

    3. What monetization method are you going to use?
    3. I'm planing tu use OGAds, but it's not 100% sure, I have to think about it.

    4. How do you scale your account? I mean, How do you increase your traffic/followers?
    4. I'm using my own Instagram Bot, the accounts follow/unfollow, Like, and Comment users posts and profiles based on the account niche using hastags, and other users followers.

    Hope it helped, and sorry for the late reply :)

    Thanks for the reply back mate. I understand that you forgot but no worries.

    1. Are you sure about buyproxies.io but people says buy from buyproxies.org. Both of them are same or different company?

    2. What is your Skype mate?
