    Hi all,

    Welcome to my journey!

    Background: Manager/Engineer, photographer in my normal day to day life. I have been searching and learning about IG automation for over a year now. I have grown 2 accounts close to 20k followers in this period. I have been using jarvee and my home proxies to grow these.

    I have tested proxies (MPP) and the success rate was not great for me, however i was aggressive with my settings. Anyway around 6 out of 20 accounts are alive but nearly all have post blocks.

    Why: My passion is photography and not my job. I believe Instagram can allow me to follow my passion if i get enough follows.

    Target: I am trying to achieve at least 100 accounts with 20k followers. This is my minimum. I am hopping then to do ecommerce on all accounts or sell these. Aiming for 20k$/year minimum.

    My investment: Currently it is around 1700$/year (jarvee, proxies, starting accounts). However i will increase this if my success rate is good within a few months, i will be doing the child/mother method 500 accounts and growing up to an investment of 5000$/year.

    What i learned so far: many things to list, but some to highlight that might be unknown to many.
    1. Ipv4 proxies are nearly all the same and you just need to find a cheap provider that exchanges these quick after getting banned.
    2. You must find ways to be very efficient with your time. Try to automate everything. I will try to employ developers to automate some of my tasks that took me for ever.
    3. You will get banned... it's a given. You must learn to create many accounts quickly, learn to use jarvee and you can save a ton of time.
    4. Even if you have a lot of money to invest you won't have enough time to do all the things you wanted, again efficiency and automation is key.
    Now: currently i have set up 150 accounts on jarvee on ipv4 proxies. All warming up. I am slowly changing account names, and profile details.
    One account was banned, it was a strange one because i couldn't log into it, i thought it was hacked or something, 1 day later it was blocked.

    I have scrapped multiple travel photographs photos and will be posting these with random but relevant spintext. (I haven't tested these yet, still warming accounts).


    I will be posting periodically. I want to keep track of my mistakes and learn with others.

    Good luck man!
    Maybe you'd be interested in creating 30-50 child accounts to your photography profile and share the progress with us? or you want to test this method first and then apply it to your personal profile?

    I just need to make sure everything is set up smooth on the current 150 accounts. (Still need to upload some posts and captions and i need to change some profile details to make it looks more inviting).

    Once all done with 150 accounts, I will be creating ig accounts and warming these up for a 2-4 months, while i do this i will probably buy 500 accounts and make them the child accounts at once with ipv6 proxies each. I wish i had more time but my day job takes most of my time and i work on this when i get home and weekends.

    I will do the child method to my photography/personal IG (which is already growing fast because the photos are very good with stories behind it). I don't know maybe you are right i need to test it first before risking my photography account.

    UPDATE

    Over the last few days i have added phone numbers (my simcards) to nearly all the accounts. Everything was smooth except i noticed a ban and investigated it...

    I made one biiiig mistake somehow i set Jarvee to increase follow per operation by 10/day... i was at 100 follow/operation!!! ON NEARLY ALL THE ACCOUNTS

    At this point i expected all accounts to get banned... but lucky for me only lost 3 accounts. I have now replaced these 3 accounts and IPs.

    Maybe i will lose more accounts because of this. Silly mistake. :anyway:



    I have added 40,000 posts to the campaign with each it's own unique caption, this should be enough for 2 years if i post every second day.

    Ouch.

    You always have to double-check the checking procedure of the checks and double-checks.

    Jokes aside, here's some hope you won't get any more bans for this.

    UPDATE


    So far all the accounts are growing nicely, split into 4 categories with different f/uf aggression. The most aggressive is at 650 follows a day. Since i started just over a month ago i lost about 10% of the accounts. This is verg good considering i made some big mistakes and i was warming up. In the last 10 days i didn't lose any accounts.

    In the last 2 weeks i have improved on all of my accounts
    • Added gmail emails
    • Nice bio to each one
    • Added sources and deleted poor follow sources
    • Started doing logos, but realised this takes waaay too long (20min/logo minimum) so i will just do this slowly, would be good to find a logo generator.

    I changed a few plans. Instead of creating 500 child accounts, i will grow 150 more main accounts. I just think i am good at it or at least i know a lot about it and will use this method for now. Also learned how to create accounts using my 4g phone. (Learned it on BHW)

    I have started researching my next batch of accounts. I will do all 150 in the luxury niche because this still relates to travel as well.

    I need to find good account names, buy more sim cards, download pictures and captions, change captions slightly.

    I will likely start running these next week. I will soon buy a new computer that can handle at least 500 accounts.

    Hi, it's interesting to read your thread as I going to create mine, but just a quick question, what proxies are you using to avoid PV? That seems to be a major problems after the new Instagram update.

    I wouldn't want to give away my provider just yet. But just so you know... i tested a few providers and all of them give out bans when starting out. My ban ratio was 10% in the first month for example.

    The important thing is to find providers that will replace your proxies immediately. Otherwise they are all pretty much the same, data center proxies...

    You get PVs probably because your aggression. Lower your settings and see what happens.

    Instead of 100, why not start with a realistic goal? I hope a year from now you're where you want to be but let's be real you're not going to get 100 accounts to 20k followers in the next month. However you could get 10 accounts to 20k.

    I am currently growing 150 accounts.

    I didn't say the next month. I said in one year, i have grown accounts to 20k already but not to this scale.
    It is super realistic and i am confident i will probably end up with much more accounts at 20k. I am planning to grow at least 1000 accounts to 20k by the end of next year.

    And no you can't get 10 accounts to 20k in a month each if that is what you mean, unless you do the child account method.
