    Hi Fastlaners!
    ===================================================
    Introduction:
    I'm Andrea, 20 y/o from Italy.
    I have a 9to5 (actually 8.30 to 6) job that basically steals me the whole day. In the evening I hit the gym and then read / study / meet with friends.

    Introduction 2:
    I feel like a small fish in a shark acquarium!! Lot of you are making XX,XXX $ per month.
    Mine is just a small success story :smile2:
    Please understand that it's my first experience as an online entrepreneur :praise:
    ===================================================

    On August 2016, I realized the power of Instagram and figured out how many people were creating new / growing their Instagram accounts in order to start making money from it.

    "In a gold cave, don't be a miner, sell shovels"

    What could i give them? What is the shovel of an instagrammer?
    Of course an Instagram automation service.

    But there are a lot of Automation services! So let's go deeper...

    The majority of people who start an IG "business" account is simply looking to make some easy money, and has no desire to learn how to use an Automation Service or to test any engagement strategy.
    They are like a businessman who just uses the "open the gate at the morning" marketing strategy.

    So why don't I give them an Automated Automation Service where I personally analyze your market and set up the best strategy for you while you don't lift a finger?

    And that is where I started.

    What did I do?

    - Created two IG accounts to bring some free traffic (0$);

    - Bought a domain and hosting with wordpress (30$) ;

    - Bought an Instagram Automation Software (100$)

    - Used my Lifetime license for Divi (wordpress theme) at ElegantThemes ( NO AFF LINK) (0$)

    - Build the website by myself (+WooCommerce, + email marketing service) (One weekend)

    -Started posting on Instagram and bringing some traffic to the website. (1 hr to schedule every weekend)

    Total spent = 130$ .

    And these are my results. (It's a Woocommerce report)

    [​IMG]

    I'm proud, because this is a 90% passive income. All i have to do is analyzing the account and setting up the system at the best.

    It's a small success, but I have to start somewhere.

    As you can see, I haven't improved a lot during these months, so today I started using Google Adwords with a 100$ budget (20$/day).
    I got 9 new trial requests!

    This is my Analytics Report:

    [​IMG]

    I want to scale it!



    PS. Sorry for any grammatical error, my bad english:happy:

    No sales on the first session. Is it normal or am I doing anything wrong?

    Thank you!
    Basically I'm providing a service of Instagram Automation.
    Other companies sell you the product and then you personally have to find the best settings for your account.
    The value I add is that i find the best settings for you.
    One of my customers is getting +300 followers daily. That means +1000 after 4 days!

    Yes, I use FL at the moment, but I will pay a developer soon (when i can afford it).

    This is the Analytics report for today.

    [​IMG]

    It's just incredibleAlmost five hundred users, got a total amount of 103 requests today...
    I can't handle more users, so I won't renew the Adwords campaign for a while.

    Now it's time to convert the trials into customers.

    Per aspera ad astra.

    Are you able to please post your FL settings? I'd really appreciate it and I'm sure plenty of others would too.

    Great action, and great thread so far.

    A quick piece of advice: pay for an insider's membership and ask one of the mods to move the thread there. Your business is very easy to replicate and very low barrier to entry. If you're going to post a step by step of how you're operating here, then you'll be welcoming unwanted competition.

    On the inside that risk is lower because a) most people that pay the membership fee are already working on their own projects; and b) there's a barrier for everyone that comes on sites like thefastlaneforum looking for ideas to steal.

    And if you don't want to move the thread to the inside, then I recommend you use less detail.

    Not that I'm aware of so don't go giving any sensitive information away. Just send a message to the mods requesting this thread be moved to the inside once you get an insider account. I'm also a FL user so look forward to seeing you there. Great work so far.

    16 ended trials and 2 new customers at the moment. 12%.

    I will let you know the final result at the end of all these trials! When it's over, I'll resume my AdWords campaign and get another wave of trials!

    Hi Razor!
    I'm sorry i haven't posted an update, but actually there's not any significant one.

    Got 4 customers thanks to the campaign, 60$ (excluding recurring revenue).
    I've spent 25€ myself and 75€ as a bonus.
    = Made about 35$.


    And yes, I haven't signed up for insider yet, because my business is still small, It barely covers the cost at the moment!

    They're growing slow these days! I'm at a +50 average per day :/
