    Hello Black Hat World!!

    I'm a newbie here in this business of making money on the internet and after several hours of reading here's my plan:
    (sorry for my bad english, i'm from South America)

    PLAN

    • Grow a few (10) instagram accounts that I already have (Some of them are 1 YEAR OLD already)
    • Post photos free of Copyright taken from websites like Pixabay
    • Gain followers Up to 20k/30k/50k/100k using a BOT (maybe INSTAGRESS / Massplanner)
    • (willing to invest some $ at the begining in bots or whatever before start making money)
    • Later i want to sell SHOUTOUTS to make MONEY.
    • I DO NOT want to sell the accounts so I want avoid at all costs getting BANNED.
    WHAT I'VE DONE SO FAR:

    • Created 10 Gmail Accounts and verified Them with 2 different phone numbers (5 accounts for each number)
    • Created 10 IG Accounts (One for each Gmail Account)
    • 5 of the IG Accounts are Grown manually to 700 Followers each (this happened almost 1 year ago and i haven't touched the accounts since then)
    • The Other 5 Accounts are BRAND NEW!

    NICHES

    The Old IG Accs:

    • 3 Hot Ladies
    • 1 Music (Album Covers)
    • 1 OCD (Obsessive Compulsive...ordered objetcs and stuff)
    The New Accs:

    • 1 Food
    • 1 Landscapes
    • 1 Music
    • 2 Not Specified yet (Maybe Fitness or Animals)
    QUESTIONS

    1. Eventually i will need to Verify my IG Accounts and i have 2 different Phone Lines. It's Okey to Verify 5 accounts per Phone Number?

    2. Do i need to buy Proxies?? (remember that i have only 10 accounts and 2 phone numbers, so the accounts will be verified)

    3. Wich BOT Do you Guys reccomend?
    Thinking about INSTAGRESS (Expensive) or Massplanner (Cheaper)
    PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU RECCOMEND OTHER BOTS!!
    I Want a BOT That accept payments via PAYPAL (Dont want to compromise my card information)

    4. WHAT NICHES WILL WORK BETTER FOR MY PLAN?
    I'm willing to change some niches if needed (like the ones with HOT LADIES)

    5. It's better to have all different niches?

    6. Can i manage my accounts by an Android Emulator like Bluestacks? or i will have problems with IG? (Remember that i DO NOT want to get banned)

    THNX EVERYBODY!!

    Sorry for the long post :p

    1. No, it is recommended to verify 1 IG account per phone number for the safest option.

    2. Yes, you should buy proxies if you are going to be running 10 accounts.

    3. Massplanner is the easiest for new people, but I recommend going for GramDominator, as it is quite cheap ($5/month) and is suitable for you until you start earning money.

    4. Your niches are fine. The OCD one is quite nice in my opinon.

    5. This doesn't really matter, but yea, don't stick to just one niche.

    6. If you don't want to get banned, use a bot and proxies. Use a tool to upload pics. Don't login to all accounts on your phone, that's account suicide.

    Proxies help simulate you accessing and using the accounts from another location. This will help you use bypass Instagram's 3 acc per network policy and make you seem like a new user using new accounts with proxies.

    The best option would of course to have both PVA* accounts and proxies, but what you can do to save money is to get 3 accounts (it's really pushing it) per proxy. So technically, you would need 4 proxies to hold your 10 accounts, but if you keep one to grow manually, you can just have 3.

    No, you do not need a VPS to use a proxy. A VPS is basically a virtual private server, in simpler terms, a PC on the cloud that runs 24/7. If you don't want to keep your own PC running with the bot of your choice 24/7, then consider getting a VPS or one for free from aws.amazon.com.
