    Hey, since last year I read a lot about what's going on Instagram so decide to give a try.


    I begin in November very slow, just trying few things, a little shy, testing Followliker, testing proxies, buying followers (screwing up some accounts).

    And now I decide to launch my journey. Will be very difficult for me to update this because I already have website that makes money, and I don't have any assistant, so basically will have 2 business managed just by me. I can't just leave my current websites since is my current income.


    My Goals:

    1. Have 1 Million followers in 6 months, all interested in 1 niche.
    2. Hit the 7 Million followers in 12 months after I hit the 1 Million mark.
    3. After 7 Million Goal I have another goal that is bigger but won't reveal it until I hit the 7million mark.

    Why 7 Millions?:
    Cause is the current population of my country, so I want to say: A whole country follows me.


    My Plan:
    1. Create 24 Instagram account, with High Quality Content. Every account is a variant of my Main Niche.
    2. Spend money on content creation tools to feed these Instagrams
    3. Make money before hit the 1 Million mark and invest this money on growing quickly this accounts.
    4. My biggest account is the General Niche, the other new accounts will be variants of the niche. Example: Main Niche: @Fitness, Other accounts subniches: @build_muscles @lose_weight @diet_no_exersice @lose_weight_for_adults @transformationphotos (this are just examples, I won't reveal my niche)
    5. Will track closely my competence
    .


    Monetize?:
    I Plan to sell my own product, which I don't have right now. No cpa, no affiliates, no shoutouts.

    Where I learn most of the things:
    Justchillin journey is the best


    What I bought:
    -Followliker of Ig
    -Account created with IGlikers
    -Cheap android phone <<not necessary but I manage 4 accounts there
    -5 Private Proxies from SSL Private Proxy


    AS I said I already begin this journey on November with personal accounts that already had (3 accounts), but I decide to expand this past April with the proxies and the new accounts.

    So This are my current stats:

    I begin April with this: 186k Followers

    I begin May with this: 262k Followers

    Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 1.22.13 PM.png

    Those empty spaces are accounts that I created but doesn't have any content (I'm working with a developer to create a content creating tool), so that means 262k followers on 12 active accounts. And 6 accounts empty accounts that I will begin this next week, and still have space for 6 accounts to complete my 24 accounts.

    I'm gaining 2-2.5k followers a day.
    My main account is gaining 1k daily followers and right now have 150k followers. And the rest 11 accounts are making another 1k followers in total so If I put to work the other 12 accounts and grow in the same pace I will gain around 5k daily followers which is perfect to hit my 1million mark in 6 months.


    I'll use another methods to growth my accounts like tumblrs, pinterest and twitter pointing to instagram and youtube videos, but I don't have a plan right now because is a lot of work and I need to automate everything and need to figure it out..

    My rules are: If the task is extremely easy I do it myself, If not, I search a programmer, and if a developer can't do it, my last option is to pay an assistant.

    I will try to update this every 2 weeks.


    Last thing:
    My grammar sucks. Sorry.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 4

    That's a huuuge number. I'm still trying to crack the 100k mark, the only problem is I have so many projects on my plate... Good Luck!

    I begin on November 2 accounts, I'm not sure why 1 of them start to gain 1k new followers and the other one is still on 150.

    I have some theories:
    -My main account is named with exact same keyword+little variant (example: FitnessWebsite)
    -The niche isn't so saturated on ig.
    -1 Big account from a Television Network started to follow me, and their likes helped me.


    Thanks to all.

    This is sooo wired and spammy. I can't believe you are even considering selling anything. All your followers are fake. Making me laugh. What product are you even talking about? You have no clue about product development. You will be out of business before you "blink your eye"...

    What I find useful when comes to things like Instagram is you have to stick with it and give time. You can not expect magic in a day. So be patience and contribute.

    OK, This is my first update sorry that I'm a little late.

    I have some troubles, so I started this journey I little slower than expected BUT nonetheless I had pretty satisfying results.

    So first of all my issues were:

    1. The developer take way too long to build me a tool.
    2. My other websites, Non IG related, require a bit more effort than normal since I have new clients. (Not big money in fact, the pressure was more about being responsible with current contracts)
    3. A fucking stormy relationship with my wife

    But finally FUCK the excuses.

    Here is my results:

    UPDATE #1

    [​IMG]

    Followers:
    Start with : 262k
    #1 Update : 301k
    -
    Diference: +39k

    Emails:
    1,858

    Earnings $:
    $931.08

    Spent:
    Developer: $100

    ---

    So here is my explanation:

    -The developer build me a tool to create content, is very customized for my needs. The content creation, includes scrape content for other accounts, scrape content from given websites, use my own cvs files to create content. This will help me to create QUALITY content, because using the follow/follow back technique is a waste of time if you don't have good content.

    -The developer last more than expected, so that why I still manage only 12 accounts, I'll begin to open more accounts since I already have the tool ready.

    - I promote some affiliate shit with a funnel that first capture their email, that's why I have collected 1,858. (I PROMOTE IT ONLY USING 1 ACCOUNT.) The other accounts still are virgins in sales.

    - I will reinvest the earnings on Instagram stuff, maybe shoutouts, more software.

    - In 4 accounts, I have created their own profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and some Tumblrs. I'm using IFTTT to do that work. In this past days some recipes of IFTTT stop working because IG change its API. So I have to figure out this.


    I've gained 39k new followers on 18 days with 12 accounts. That's 2,166k per day on average. and 180 followers per account.

    That's cool, cause my current goal is 1 Million on 6 months. So if I active 12 more accounts at that pace will be roughly 4k new followers a day, 120k a month.


    So Hope to bring you more huge news in the next update.
