I hope he sells you a ''limited time special offer'' for coaching via email.Want to give me some of that?
Thanks for offering your expertise.In the past I have also used a lot of different bots. IGCompanion is properly not the one with the most functionalities but I feel the most secure with it since it does not use a reversed engineered api to access my accounts. Other than that I will not continue talking about igcompanion anymore because there seem to be people that think this thread is about selling anything. And it definitely is not about that.
Congratulations, glad to have been a tiny piece to your puzzle.
This is interesting, good thinking.In the past I have always had a single >official< account for the corresponding brand.
While that is a good idea, such an account does not have as much potential in reaching new customers than having multiple accounts in a more generic niche.
Experience shows that advertising to the same amount of total followers (one time a single brand account, other multiple accounts where the followers have interest in the topic, not the brand necessarily) differs drastically. With the described approach in this thread the conversation rate increases by 60% +
Hi MJ!Thanks for offering your expertise.
That said, your blueprint in TLDR is this:
1) Create good content daily (outsourced to Fiverr)
2) Use bot to simulate engagement.
3) Collect money via your real business which is real commerce?
Is that correct?
I always ask the question of what kind of content would I want to see for a specific niche?This is interesting, good thinking.
Normally, you can only put one link in your bio but with this you can redirect visitors to your main account.
What content would you post in your generic accounts (before you accepted promotional requests from other brands) ?
I love this idea of brutalism. I guess it is too late now to use this for another city account now ... Do you have any ideas on how i can take this technique of brutalism into the beauty niche?I started visiting different cities lately and enjoyed visiting various of places. So I created 4 accounts for specific cities in Europe and Australia. On those I post content of places that people should definitely NOT visit because of a given reason.
In my opinion you can easily set yourself apart on instagram if you produce content that is different, because these days everyone is publishing the same kind of content on Instagram and people are getting sick of it.I love this idea of brutalism.

I have actually done an experiment just about a month ago:From my experience, Instagram is catching on to accounts that do follow/unfollow and punishing them through shadowbans. No big accounts that I know on Instagram even do follow/unfollow since it's way too risky and most of the followers you get are spam. Instead most high growth pages I know post highly engaging content and then use DM groups (large Influencers engage on your content) to land on the explore page and grow that way. I have tried both methods and the explore page + DM groups have worked way better in my experience. Are you doing anything with the explore page and DM groups or just the botted automation?
After about 5-10k I DM tons of accounts in the same niche doing shoutouts for shoutouts. However, not for all accounts since this process eats time. If you can afford it definitely try to buy shoutouts from accounts with high following (> 1M) and see how it works for you.Are you doing anything with the explore page and DM groups or just the botted automation?
Yes, although the description is very simplified. Important parts are to implement the idea of brutalism into the niche accounts to separate yourself from the other accounts. When reaching a certain amount of followers trade shoutouts with similar accounts, keep the quality of your content high and go insane with engagement on potential customers/followers, and while doing all of that direct the funnel to your commerce websites.So let's say my niche is Menswear Clothing.
You would create multiple accounts in this niche and grow them to a point where people would look at them regularly for inspiration, you would run a bunch of them and simply put the link of your shop in the bio and making post of the brand to promote it ?
Thank you!It´s very subtle, but what I get by reading between the lines is making very general content for a niche(which logically can get a huge following fast) and then market the brand through it.
Creating content only with the brand itself is slower, because it doesn´t have that content/mass market potential. This is why personal branding might be slower than the general market approach.
Everything else is just putting in the work.
Congrats on your success @Jinn Sola
I have not posted links because in the blueprint I stated that I use IG automation aka botting.Apologies if I missed links to your Instagram accounts, I couldn't find links. Can you post a few again?
Also, sorry if asking a similar question to before: are you 80 accounts all under the one niche umbrella? So, do you have a connection that migrates your followers to other accounts... like a franchise model?
Thank you, I take this as a compliment!After reading all these and messaging OP, I'm going to say he could very well be the real deal and not DamienPros v2 (which is what I thought previously).
This guy really seems to know what he is doing.
It's not so much his botting tactics but his content marketing philosophy.
Btw, since DM groups are known to be under IG's radar, would you say Telegram groups are better? I'm currently in a private group where there's all mainly big accounts liking each other every 30 mins. I haven't tried it yet although I'm in the group.
Stay away from Mercedes and directly go for Lambo, do it like MJSpeaking of making a business out of IG, I got to know this guy previously, who runs an IG repost page on cars and makeup. Showed me the pic of his Mercedes Benz which he brought from the earnings. On his makeup IG page, he directs all the chicks there to his site where he sells dropshipped makeup kits. Neat huh?
So you're saying to use the niche accounts to direct the visitors directly to your site?I have tried of using the main brand account as a middleman between niche accounts and websites but that does not work as well. Actually it works a lot worst
I would say as long as the username fits the niche it's alright.Have you found that your chosen username impacts activity and followers?
For photo editing my VAs and I use photo fox (iPhone app) because it's simple, fast and you can get great results (see examples on their instagram account).What tools and/or programs do you use to edit/upload photos? Lets say for example that I find a picture of a car on google images that I want to share with my followers. Do you just screenshot it, or save it down and edit before uploading to Instagram? Any tools/tricks for photography selection and posting high quality photos?
Yes exactly! People are lazy. The less clicks needed to get gratification, the more users will gratify themselves with your products.So you're saying to use the niche accounts to direct the visitors directly to your site?
Niche account ---> website to get sales
Niche account ---> Brand account (website link in bio) ---> website to get sales
That's too slow. Download Regrann app and install on your phone. When it's in, each time you see a pic or video you like, click the 3-dots in the IG post and tap Copy Link. The app takes over the rest lol.Let's say for example that I find a picture of a car on google images that I want to share with my followers.

By taking fan favorite brands/products and posting why people SHOULDN'T use them.I love this idea of brutalism. I guess it is too late now to use this for another city account now ... Do you have any ideas on how i can take this technique of brutalism into the beauty niche?
Somehow I feel like the beauty niche is over-saturated already. Lately I notice the growth of my follower base stagnating on Instagram and i dont know what to do about it anymore.By taking fan favorite brands/products and posting why people SHOULDN'T use them.
In America some of the most popular brands (on Instagram) would be Anastasia Beverly Hills, Huda Beauty, Too Faced, Kylie Cosmetics, KKW Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury, etc. etc. etc.
These brands have a culture and community of people who swear by the products just because they love the brand. Watch the bad reviews on Youtube to see what popular beauty influencers have to say about the products.
(Usually poor color pay off, fading pigmentation, too chalky/dry, etc. etc. etc).
I do hope this helps you Spohiee!
