    Hi everyone, i officially started my instagram project today, and decided to start this thread to keep me motivated and goal oriented, and hopefully give other noobies like me a sense of how the process works and maybe enough motivation for them to follow my steps and take action.

    What i did so far:
    • get approved on ogads
    • bought 10 instagram pva accounts from accs123 (7 $)
    • bought 10 semidedicated proxies from buyproxies (10$)
    • bought masplanner (still in the trial period atm but 20$ in 3 days)
    i know i can probably go with more than one account per proxy, but i wanted to start safe so that i don't lose motivation with the bans.

    At the moment the instagram accounts are in the process of warming up, 3 of the accounts got phone verification 2 or 3 hours after i bought them, i used textnow to verify them, and everything is running smooth, here are the massplanner settings i'm using right now to warm up the accounts (if you have experience with this, i'm open to suggestions as this is my first try with instagram)

    [​IMG]

    i still haven't put any bio or profile pictures or link nor have i changed the usernames on the accounts (for maximum safety), i was planning on waiting 4 days for them to warm up before i do that, but i'm not sure if that's the way to go, here too i would like to know what you think.

    my affiliate manager said that the semidedicated proxies from buyproxies would do the trick, so i wen with that

    and i'm not planning on posting on the accounts, i will only be following people, because from the few journeys i read, it's the best option, and probably the safest one too.

    I mean you should download a program called HTTrack Website Copier to Rip the landing pages you wil use from OG ads and then upload them to your own domain. not smart to just use the url OG ads gives you and shorten it with bitly

    your setup should be Shortener (bit.ly,goo.gl,etc.) --> Pre lander - this could be done with free resources like (weebly,blogger, etc.) --> Main LP (which will be og ads LP but hosted on your own domain)

    The setup above is good enough to get you past IG's spiders/crawlers .. there are even better ways to get past IG but this is the simplest and cheapest way

    thank you for the advice, that seems like a safe bet as their domain names must get flagged quickly.

    Thank you, that's helpfull. I will try that when my accounts are all warmed up and i buy more of them.
    Do you have any advice for bio/profile picture/link/username? do you change them as soon as you buy or create the accounts? or do you wait for them to warm up a little bit to be safe?

    Yes. If you run accounts for long-term business and bought them from someone else you should do the following:

    - Change IG name and password
    - Buy new emails
    - Login to these emails and change EVERYTHING (password, security question, contact email)
    - Change instagram emails to the new ones
    - remove phone number (if you bought pva accs).

    This needs to be done because some account sellers have a script that simply resteals your account in 1-4 weeks and resells them again.
    Also NEVER do more than 1 "big change" on your instagram account in 24h (so don't go change everything, start following ppl, add bio image etc. at once).
    The best way to be safe is that you put in a link to bio at least 7 days after the warm up of your accounts. This way you don't get accounts banned so fast.

    i wasn't aware of that, i will secure my accounts as soon as possible, and thank you for the rule of thumb hopefully it will help keep the ban rate at a low level.

    I saw many people doing mistakes like that, maybe i should open a new thread writing down the ACTUALLY best way to reduce ban ratio? (only 1.5 months ago everything were much easier on ig).

    thank you

    UPDATE #1
    - 10 Accounts are still getting warmed up, they should be ready for this weekend.
    - "Stole" a landing page to test a certain niche, set it up in my own domain, with ogads content locker.
    - Found a tracking website that offers a free version with 1 custom tracking domain, which is really cool.

    I haven't had much time yet to set web 2.0 prelanders, I need some direction for this, do you make it look legit and all with a nice prelanding page? or do you just minimize the page and put a continue button and that's it?
