    Hi welcome to my journey thread. I've been following BHW for a long time and have been reading all kind of threads. I started my IG journey already like a 2 months ago and I thought this would be the perfect time to open my journey thread as I believe it'll motivate me to work even harder. Reading all the journey threads about Instagram really Inspired me.

    So here it goes I'll break down my journey into few parts.

    Right now I have 11 accounts, I'll add more as I go
    Accounts Followers
    1 6,921
    2 1,820
    3 1,759
    4 461
    5 1,088
    6 1,151
    7 1,994
    8 322
    9 146
    10 218
    11 35


    What I've done so far
    - I have bought FL unlimited license
    - Bought 5 Proxies
    - Created accounts in several Niches
    - Bought PVA accounts (but most asked to Re PV them, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone instead by your own numbers or use your family, friends, relatives and etc)
    - Found accounts to scrape users from
    - Found accounts to download pictures from
    - Set FL to Share Picture in most of my accounts

    I wanted to buy IGERSLIKE license but I heard it has been buggy lately.

    Followliker Settings

    - I follow people until I reach 7.5k then unfollow them
    - 700-800 follows per day with 55-65 seconds delay
    - I do FLC on some of my accounts not all!

    My Plan on Monetizing this accounts

    - Open an E-commerce site (Later when my accounts get popular
    - Do Affiliate Marketing
    - Run Adsense site
    - Sell Shoutouts (I wouldn't do it unless I really need some $$$)

    Note: I won't do all of these methods altogether, I'll test it out each of them and see which one works best for me.

    My Goals
    - Reach at least 100k followers on some of my accounts by June, 2016
    - Earn at least $50/day by February (My Birthday Month :D )
    - None of my accounts should get banned (cuz I'm staying well within the limits)

    Please suggest any way I could improve my journey or any other method of monetizing

    I'll try updating this thread once a week.

    If you have any question regarding this journey please ask here.

    Sounds good, I am in an instagram journey too but because i am VERY broke i am just going with 1 account right now and its going wonderfully at them moment. I have a few questions.

    Do you plan on doing S4S soon and if yes how would you find accounts in the similar follower range?

    Have you been botting these accounts since 2 months? I am doing one account manually and second week finishes in 5 hours and i already have almost 3000 followers (would probably have them by the end of 5 hours at 3k)

    Also good luck on your journey i will be following this :)

    Goodluck OP, but don't be mad if accounts get banned.. They won't be safe just because you're botting within the limits haha, instagram won't care, they ban you for botting / spamming.

    Reminds me of JustChillin's journey.. And mine...

    I'll try doing S4S once my accounts reach 10k followers (Hopefully Soon), I honestly don't know about any specific tool that would find similar follower range accounts, so I guess I'll do manual search I know it will be time consuming. I'll also drop my kik ids on bio!
    I started botting like a month ago, I was doing it manually before.

    Good luck with your plan, keep us updated :)
    Im new to IM and Instagram is the first I want to try my luck with. A few questions about the setup (sorry, these might be really nooby):

    Are you using a VPN or just proxies?

    Are you running FL on a VPS or on your computer?

    How do you manage to get different phone numbers to verify your accounts if needed?

    It's been a okay week, I need to do something to increase my follow back ratio. Also I was unfollowing on some accounts so should have had more gains. I will start monetizing this accounts from next month.

    BTW any suggestions for improving followback ratio? like should I scrape users from hashtags or people who liked a particular picture?
