I've enjoyed reading through Ewok's journal with Instagram. Massplanner really isn't that expensive and and I linked with a ref so you can help CN out if you wanna sign up. You can run this on a PC, but its way easier to just use a VPS. Right now I'm starting out with a free VPS through AWS. AWS will give you a low tier free one for a full year, no charge, no cc needed. Its not incredibly powerful, but to start I"m just going to use a handful of accounts. I'll move on to a new VPS when I need to.
10 paid proxies - $10 per month
13 non PVA email verified Instagram accounts - $5
Brand accounts: 1 insta, 1 twitter, 1 pinterest - Free
6 months of unlimited Mass Planner - $84
VPS - Free
Plan of Action
I'm going to use Mass Planner to grow the brand accounts slowly. No risking ban, low daily limits, etc. Looking to build a social presence for a brand and bring in some traffic as well.
The other accounts will be in unique niches. I'll be using these to test out profitability in different niches. I want to try out some different ideas, different offers, different tactics, and different methods. There is a good chance I'll completely fail with all of them, but I might also hit some gold. If these don't work out well, I'll just buy some more accounts and go a generic route.
Massplanner installed on VPS.
Accounts logged in and verified to be working on proxies. Right now, I have brand accounts using the AWS IP (no proxy), and 1-2 accounts per proxy (10 proxies and 13 accounts). I'll probably just treat them the same and see if ban rates seem to correlate or not.
Brainstorming 13 different niches.
Going to let the accounts rest for 1 or 2 days with minimal following of a handful on each account.
