Instagram is undoubtedly, one of the fastest growing platform for internet marketing. Due to its massive popularity and huge user-base, it has become one of the prime promotional platform for any opportunity seeking marketer. With the advent of automation bots like Followliker, Mass Planner etc, Instagram promotion has become more and more automated and hassle free. However, there is a obnoxious obstacle in the path of Instagram marketing and that is the creation of Instagram accounts. Being a mobile social platform, Instagram strictly allowed registrations only from mobile devices, which made it quite hard for people to mass produce accounts. Since Instagram logs IP and device ID, it is quite difficult to create multiple accounts without getting them all flagged and banned. In this guide, I will share some tips and methods to make your Instagram accounts as ban-proof as possible. But, there is no guarantee that your accounts will never get banned, but these methods will definitely reduce the chance.

1. Unique IP/Private Proxies: It is impossible to get unique IPs nowadays due to the limitations of IPv4 variations and until the full fledged use of IPv6 starts, we will always face unique IP scarcity. However, even though you cannot obtain completely unique IPs, it is still possible to obtain IPs, which have been less likely used on Instagram. If you are planning to seriously start your promotion on Instagram, I strongly recommend you to invest on private proxies. There is always a possibility that the private proxies have been previously used on IG but the chances are usually slim, as oppose to using default IP or public proxies. Many people recommends 5 ~ 10 accounts per proxy, but I will strongly oppose this suggestion. I personally advise you to create only 1 account per proxy and if it's too low, you can create a maximum of 3 accounts using the same proxy. However, if you take the later approach, be sure to create the accounts at an interval of 24 hours or more. There is always a chance that someone has used the proxy to promote their own marketing before and using the same IP might get your accounts banned, but you will have to take that risk as there are no better (or at least cheaper) alternatives present, as of now.

2. Unique Device ID: Each mobile device has a unique device ID and when you create an account on Instagram, they register that ID in their database. If too many accounts were created using the same ID, all of them risk a chance of chain ban. If you think you can fool Instagram by using some kind of simulator/emulator (e.g. BlueStack), then you are quite wrong. Instagram can easily detect (in most cases) whether you are using a "fake" mobile device to register an account and in most cases they will automatically flag these accounts which will get auto banned if anyone report them. The only workaround of this problem is to purchase multiple mobile devices, purchase bulk accounts from freelancers (not suggested, since you do not know whether variable IDs where used to make these accounts) or purchase any program which can generate unique ID and create accounts using them. To avoid getting banned, try not to create more than 3 accounts from the same device.

3. Account Age: This is a crucial factor for IG marketing and many people seems to overlook this. The age of the account plays a vital role in safeguarding it from bans. A random newly created accounts will always have the system's pointy eye over it and if violation of ToS occurs or spamming is done, it won't be long when the ban-hammer strikes. To avoid this, it is suggested to promote in aged accounts which are at least a month old. You are free to create multiple accounts, post a bunch of "natural" pictures and keep them in the closet for a couple of months before indulging them in your marketing campaigns. 1 month or 30 days is the minimum suggested age but I personally recommend to age all accounts for 3+ months.

4. Natural Look: It is a common sense but still many marketers fails to realize this rudimentary yet extremely important factor. Since you will mainly be using IG accounts for the promotion of affiliate products and you will be using automation tools, which violate their ToS/policy, it is best to initially make them look as natural as possible. Give them a proper human name (not something like "hay day h@ck for you"), add a proper natural bio (non promotion related), add no website if possible. The profile picture is entirely up to you. Now, to make them look natural, you need to follow multiple celebrities, famous people, photographers or any public figures and post natural pictures and write human comments on some of the pictures, shared by other people. You can do this when the accounts are aging. Once you have gained a handful of organic followers and made Instagram believe that you are a "good guy", you are free to change your account details and wear off your mask. This step ensures that you are not in Instagram's radar from the start.

5. Limiting Daily Followers/Post/Likes: Once you start your promotion, remember to configure your automation tool to follow a maximum of 100 ~ 150 people per day and post 2 ~ 4 pictures daily over random intervals and throughout the day. Rushing towards growth will only give you a quick ban. Play it slow. Remember, slow & steady, wins the race!

Now, none of these methods will make you immune to ban since you are already violating Instagram's rules by automating and promoting niche affiliate contents; but these tips and some common sense will surely extend the life of your accounts.

I hope you liked this guide. Have fun and good luck on your Instagram endeavor!

Anything above 200 ~ 250 followers a day is suspicious. Play it slow and steady.

Hey, thanks for the information, will be useful.

I have a question. After filling out your profile, at which point I can add a description of BIO.

Suppose that the creation of the profile hacks and other niches BH. Make-up fits the profile of the BIO something that always comes up telephone verification. I do it too early? I should have to wait some time or just verify your phone.

Where to write the address of the page? The BIO or in the address of the page?

Firstly, once you are done with creation, let your account age for a few weeks or a month. Do some natural organic usage and then once its aged enough, add the description, bio. Your website link should be in your profile's website field. I strongly recommend linking to one of your article site's article, which will then point the user towards the LP. Linking directly to LP might cause insta ban/pv. Phone verification can be done at any time.
