Let me first start by saying I have been lurking on this forum for years and tried many methods to make easy money. I have failed at pretty much every one except Amazon Kindle, which I put in around 20 hours of writing and it's been passive making over 100 a month for several years. That's the only success I've had out of everything I've tried. Anyway I usually don't try anything with social media because I'm just bad at it, but I can think of endless possibilities using Instagram. I know they've been rolling out the ads and stuff for a while so if my first plan to make money via shoutouts fails due to ads, I can use the following for other means like taking them to a CPA, or even better. At the very least I think I could have several fallbacks and if all else fails I will just keep growing it until I find something that does work. So I am starting off noob style. I hated Instagram before, never used the thing, but I started using it the last few days with one purpose in mind, to grow it and make money eventually. My goal is simply $20 a day. It may not seem like a lot but considering I have failed at everything else I will consider it a success if I can reach that. I'm hoping to also be able to start that after 50k followers, or in 5 months. I am thinking around 200 followers a day once things get ramped up. In the first 2 weeks I am going to keep it low at 100 a day and increase from there. I know at this rate I am looking at 20-20k in 5 months but I also know that the number of people following will increase as the account grows. I am going to work on 1 account to start, and add maybe 1 or 2 as things progress. I am also trying in the food area of things. I'm sure there are better niches but I also feel like I want to post content that I actually care about so that it isn't some automated mess. So here goes. My account is 3 days old and I have been following manually for the last 2 days. Not really much just loading up my phone and following a few followers of several other people in my niche. That yielded me around 30 follows back. Today I started to automate it a bit and am now up to 75. I will stop at 100 and take things slow over the next few days. I think first week I will maybe make 50 a day. I am going to post once a day and see how things progress. I am also hashtagging in my posts to gain more exposure. I gained around 10 likes on one photo from 75 people and another 10. I really do want to try to get some decent engagement as things progress. I think at 10k if I get close to 300 likes I will be happy. I see people selling shoutouts all the time on 100k accounts and their engagement is only 2-3k. So I will start this day off as day 1, since it's day 1 of my journey. I also can't stand seeing the dead journeys on here. People going 3-4 months, getting to 20-30k from nothing and then never posting again. I do plan to follow this through long term because there is absolutely no reason why having 100k+ of people to connect with won't turn into some form of money. If I make at least $20 a day from that 100k then success!!! Day 1 Follows: 75 Any tips on what settings to run in follow liker? So as not to get hit with a ban hammer. Also is it safe to use the same IP to run up to 2-3 accounts before using proxies? Just some questions if I want to introduce more accounts in future.
