    Hey Guys,
    I know there are tons of other Instagram Journeys here, but im doing this for 2 reasons:
    1.)
    There might actually be some people that still enjoying reading more and more Instagram Journeys.:D
    2.) To motivate me. When im writing down what i have done and what i want to do its easier for me to actually do it and also i can see my progress way better.
    I have read a lot in here, finally decided to sign up and share my Journey with you guys. I hope i can inspire & help some people with this. So thank you!


    So a little bit to myself:
    I am 21, from Germany and studying at the moment. A pretty typical way of education... but if i am honest that is not what i want.
    My dream would be to make this whole IM stuff for a living.
    I know its a looooong way to get that far that you can do it for a living. But that would be my ultimate goal.

    How will i make money:
    It will be another Instagram + OGAds Journey.
    I read a lot of other journeys and i also read that OGAds is starting to "die" cause of the offers that get
    capped way to fast (causing a bad CVR), but nevertheless i want to give it a try.

    Strategy:
    I will go as safe as possible.
    That means 1 Proxy and 1 Number per Account. The costs will be a little bit higher, but it will hopefully pay out regarding to how long the accounts stay alive and make profit.
    As most of you guys i will go like: Instagram Profile - Pre Lander - Landing Page.
    I will use OGAds LP´s at the start but will work on own LP´s as the ones from OGAds are used & known too much...

    Road till now:
    I signed in & got approved from OGAds.
    I bought the Instagram Edition of Massplanner.
    I bought 10 dedicated Proxies.
    I bought 20 aged, non-PVA Accounts.
    I bought 20 Sim-Cards.

    What will happen next:
    I will set up the 10 Accounts with 10 proxies and start setting them up.
    I will warm them up about a week with low follow settings.
    After monetizing and testing I will buy another 10 Proxies and set up the other accounts.

    Questions? Feel free to ask me anything you would like to know! I´m glad if i can give this forum a little bit back by answering your questions as this forum taught me a lot!​

    Hey, good luck with your journey mate!
    Proxies are from Actproxy. They are very cheap and i wanted to test them.
    Accounts are from accs123.
    Sim Cards are from ebay. As i said im from germany and you can order them here for about 1€ per sim card.

    UPDATE
    Finally my Proxies arrived and i did set up all 10 accounts to Massplanner.
    As expected all needed Email - Verification. Successfully verified them all.
    3 of them need Phone Verification, so i need to wait till tomorrow for my sim cards to arrive.
    Also set up the follow settings but wont start following today straight away. Will start tomorrow with warming them up.

    Yes, it will depend on my targeting. Lets say you are in the niche free fifa coins, what you wanna do then is target people which are playing fifa and maybe want free coins.
    Those people (if you target them right) will follow you back when they see you follow them. So it all comes down to the right targeting.
    No problem ;) Yes. I will definitely set up a niche related profil picture, name and bio. I will try to make them look in a normal way without using scamming words like "free"... I was doing CPI in the past and got many accounts banned... I did many things wrong back then. Had 3 accounts per proxy and also 2-3 accounts per number. All messed up. So i want to start all over again and do it right this time.
    Thank you buddy, all the best for your journey as well! :)

    UPDATE
    As i said i already did CPI with OGAds in the past.
    But i forgot to mention that i have still running some accounts from that time with proxies from buyproxies.
    I do not really count them as i am expecting them to get banned soon, so i just use them for testing purpose.
    I finally realized that my links to my LP are flagged. I set them up on 6 accounts (1link per account) and they all got instantly phone verification.

    Maybe you can help me here: Im using Wix to create my LP´s. The way how free domains from Wix work is:
    http://"youraccountname".wixsite.com/"yourchoice"
    So every link is the same except for the last "/" part.
    When i now notice that the links are flagged does that mean that all links which starts with my account name are flagged?
    Or are just the "/"- parts flagged?

    EDIT: Somehow i manged to successfully verify 5 of them. 1 got banned after verification.
    Used my old numbers which were laying here and im really surprised that it worked.
    Then these links might not be flagged. o_O

    UPDATE
    As the accounts that i expected to get banned didnt get banned im now counting them for next updates.
    Ive set them up and put in links as they are already warmed up. So that means that i have now:

    -10 running Accounts
    -16 Accounts warming up

    Screenshot.png

    Still 10 hours left today, but nevertheless these earnings are damn low for 10 running accounts. I think its cause im using OGAds LP´s on them.
    I will set up my own LP´s which i finished over the last days on the ones that are warming up now and hope they´ll convert better.

    If everything goes as planned next update will be in about 4-5 days, when i start to use my accounts that are warming up atm.

    UPDATE
    What the fuck is going on?!....

    Running Accounts: 15
    Warming up : 8
    Follow blocked: 3

    As i said i was doing IG+OGAds for a little while before i started this journey.
    Back then i had like 10 accounts running in one niche and had about $3-4 daily earnings. Then almost all of them got banned.
    Now i am also running 10 accounts in that niche,
    but i only get about 2-4 conversions a day...I cant explain why that is happening since i am doing almost everything the same.

    The only thing thats different is that my account back then (before they got banned) had about 2-3k followers. Mine now have about 700. Everything else is almost the same!
    But that cant be the reason that i have this huge decrease in earnings...

    I set up 8 accounts for testing purpose. 4 accounts in one niche and the other 4 in another niche.
    These niches dont seem to work. Today was my first day with these niches and i got .... 0 clicks.
    This is bringing my motivation a huge step down.

    I signed up to CPAGrip and will do a little research with that and maybe start using CPAGirp.

    Hello, i sent you a pm!

    great journey, hope you will succeed :)

    1 more question that i did not ask you about in the pm, why dont anyone that does this method post images and also get higher engagement, will this not draw higher clicks to your og lockers?
