    Hi friends, yes, it's another IG with OGads journey thread. I'm pretty new to social marketing and blackhat SEO so this thread is a way for me to note down what I've learned, keep track of my schedule and for any experts to give me critiques on my techniques and strategies.

    A bit about myself, I'm 25, living in Singapore and I also run a YouTube channel for gaming. My day job is a boring office job so I have a lot of time to read and learn about blackhat SEO.

    I started following @Cryogenesis methods about a week ago but I kept reading and not taking the plunge. This week, I took a plunge and started off.



    Day 1: Bought 10 fresh non-PVA accounts from 123accs.com. Good support, replaced a banned account within half an hour of reporting it to the seller. He didn't have stock for older accounts so moving forward, I will be looking for older accounts. I will be focusing on 2 niche and in turn, 5 accounts for each niche

    Day 2: Bought Massplanner Instagram Edition. Bought 10 semi-dedicated proxies. Not sure if these would be good enough. Fired up Massplanner and loaded my accounts and proxies in and made sure I saw that sweet "VALID" displayed.

    Day 3: Signed up for the free Amazon 1 year VPS. I plan to do up to 50 accounts and if everything goes well, I'll be looking to upgrade my VPS. Migrated my Massplanner there and tested it. Started off liking some "likeforfollow" posts. I started with like 30-50 posts in hopes of gaining some followers but these bastards don't follow at all, gained maybe 2-3 followers out of my 10 accounts. But I'm guessing it's because my profiles are empty.

    Day 4: Rest

    (Current) Day 5: Start following followers of my target accounts, maximum 50. Create Wordpress blogs as pre-landers. Buy domains for my niches.



    Moving Forward: I will start gathering profile pictures for my niches. I will profile and bio my accounts on Day 6 and ramp up the following. I'll start off with following 100-150 then 150-200 a day and so on.



    If you have any tips or advice, feel free to post them here. I'll be updating this thread a few times a week.

    :)

    When you buy non PVA ig accounts it doesn't immediately ask for phone verification? Also, why not use followliker so you don't have to pay monthly for MP? You can get 50 proxies for $30 a month from proxy millions in the marketplace btw

    I got hit on like half of them when I tried following so I guess I should have done a bit more research on this. Nonetheless, I managed to use textnow.com to verify them and recorded their numbers.

    I'm starting small and low so I'm trying to keep my cost down, hence not buying followliker and 50 proxies. Moving forward, I will consider these.


    Thanks for your advice and thanks to everyone who replied for your support.

    I see, I actually have some accounts alive that I use to auto follow and I'm getting away with using no proxies. So I probably would've held off on proxies until I made some profit.

    I didn't know you could use textnow to verify IG accounts, I've been thinking of getting back into instagram, if I did I'd buy aged 6 month+ accounts for $2 each, that way I can start mass following on them without warming them up

    Good luck mate, i hope you meet your success! Btw if u're going to spam avoid posting, it increases chances of ban, also of people reporting your accs

    Thanks all I'll keep it in mind. I'm just going to follow accounts targeted at niche so I'm not going to post anything.

    I do have a question, I'm in the middle of profiling my accounts, I've changed the usernames and description to better fit my niche. The question is, can I use the same pictures over 5 accounts? Assuming I grab a picture of an iPhone 7 and add some text to it in photoshop then upload it to 5 accounts as profile pics, will Instagram detect this? Or should I slightly change them (maybe slightly different shades or colours for the text?).

    @pyro77 No, IG will detect same pic used across multiple accounts in a suspicious way and might ban you
    You'll have to change the md5 hash of the image, look "hash manager" it's a simple software that does it or anything similar

    I'm going for one domain to a pre-lander than to the landing page of my niche, so I'll be using 2 landing pages, 10 web 2.0s and 10 domains. If that makes sense.

    What if I save them as different files and alter them slightly?

    idk about editing it, but the safest practice is to gather few images, make copies and change names and md5 hash then upload to ig

    My followers/followings. Am I doing ok? I feel the follow backs are kinda low. I've updated the bio (short description, no links yet) and usd generic pictures of the niche for the profile pic.
