    Hello there friends, in the past few years i've been making a regular income from Instagram mainly from my "little network" of accounts. Right now i have 3 accounts with a total of 400k+ followers and i make about $700 / month with them by selling shoutouts / ads. For those who are wondering, it took me 7 months to get to 400k followers no Bots just a phone and about an hour a day for doing follow / unfollow and posting.
    Important note : I will not count the money i'm doing with these accounts since this is a different project.



    About this Journey
    For this journey i will start with 5 accounts in different niches and i'll use MassPlanner to managing them. In the long run i will add more and more accounts to my network but will just use this 6 initial accounts to test different niches.
    I'll do everything i can to hit my goal of 1000$ / month.

    How i will make money :
    • Shoutout / Promotions
    • Affiliate Marketing / CPA
    • Selling accounts
    • Grow instagram accounts for other people
    What i have :
    • Massplanner - $100 -for follow / unfollow (i will post photos manually)
    • 6 Proxies - 6 x $3,5 - I'm using instagram proxies from highproxies, 1 per account
    • Vps - free - Right now i'm using a free vps from Amazon but i need to upgrade asap. (need suggestions for a good vps for massplanner not too expensive) .
    • 5 aged Instagram accounts (2 years ) - 5 x 5$
    ACCOUNTS
    [​IMG]


    The first account in the cars niche is the only account that is not aged so i have to be a little more careful with that one. Some accounts are a few hours old others are 3 days old.
    Right now i have a pretty absurd engagement, the secret for that is : Quality posts.


    Notes : Right now i'm looking for a good quality vps to run up to 50-70 accounts with no problem with a reasonable price so i need a little help with that
    If you have any suggestions for new niches i would love to ear your opinion or if you want me to grow an account on a specific niche for you just send me a pm.


    Sorry for my bad english

    To find the best content to post i recommend you to spend a good time searching for accounts on your niche with the best engagement. From those accounts just take the posts with more likes. Since you are in the cars niche i can pm you some good accounts to take posts from.

    Update

    [​IMG]

    Cars - Didn't used the bot for this account today, just organic growth. Had to lower the settings on this account since this is a fresh account.

    Cars 2 - " Hey ! That's pretty good " . Nice growth and nice engagement . Just perfect

    Fashion - Not that bad for a fashion account. Fashion is probably one of the most difficult niches to build but i can guarantee you that will be worth it.

    Pets / Fitness - Nothing to say here, just an average day.

    Tech - It's pretty hard to get content for this niche because you'll have to get a good photo and write a good caption but this account / niche is amazing because with only 600 followers i already got a company contacting me to make a review of their product ( wireless speakers )


    -----

    Today i was debating with my self about scaling up this project. I don't know if i should just invest my own money into this or just wait until this gets self-financed.
    What i have to spend to get 20 more accounts :
    • Massplanner Unlimited multi accounts - 70$
    • Massplanner Poster - 35$
    • 20 accounts (2 years old) - 100$
    • 20 proxies - 70$ / month
    • Vps - about 30$ / month
    So thats pretty much 200$ in one time and 100$/month.
    I guess you can tell that i'm expending too much money on accounts and proxies because i can just get some 6 month old accounts for 2$ or use normal proxies 3 accs / proxy , but i'm on instagram for too long and i know what i have to do to have almost 0% chance of getting banned. Anyway I will think about this a little more

    Impressive journey, great selection of niche accounts!

    Would you care to add me on Kik, as I have some resources that are very useful to us as influencers?
