    Hi all,

    im new in this forum and just lurked a bit before signing up. Has been very helpful so far! Great forum!

    I have a fashion related instagram account which is very popular with around 350k REAL followers (every pic pop page)
    They love all the pics and i am doing some promotions for other shops here and there but i am feeling that i dont get the maximum potential out of this.

    Maybe somebody of you experienced IM guys has an idea how to increase my profit ???

    What will you do with such an account ?? I dont want to piss off my followers, so no spamming/ free ipad surveys ...

    SUggestions welcomed!

    Cheers
    Tony

    you should probably think about selling it ... if they are all real followers could go for a decent price... its a lot hard to monetize instagram then it is other social platforms.

    Do not sell it like someone suggested, just a stupid idea.
    Keep the account, keep allowing it to grow until you find a method that works for you. Once you do then the cash will keep rolling in, a lot more than what anyone can offer you.

    It's better to use the search function here on BHW and find out few methods that can help you earn from your followers.

    Here are two methods which are confirmed working methods:
    (don't know what happens in your case but these methods are working ones)

    1. Method 1
    2. Method 2

    My suggestion is that you earn daily from your followers, than selling them out and earn once!

    maybe you should start a legit fashion blog.
    watermark your photos and monetize with adsense.
    if i had a big account, i would definitely setup a nice site for my niche.
    no CPA, much too spammy and it risks your account too much.

    I'd suggest that you'd start your own online shop / shops. Filled either with amazon products or products from dropshippers. Promoting the products of your shop / shops amongst such a huge audience should be more profitable. EmpireQualitys idea of creating a fashion Blog or several related Blogs to which you send your Instagram traffic is certainly an excellent idea! Besides monetizing these Blogs with Adsense you could again promote your shop / shops on these blogs.

    Yes, selling "shoutouts" for $5 on places like Fiverr or the Fiverr clones would work well

    *Yawn* another "how do I monetize my 500k follower instagram account"

    The last person tried to sell it to me for $4,500... I countered $500 and he accepted.

    Do you think I'll be wiring the money across?? LOL

    no offense, but maybe the worst suggestion of the thread so far

    do you know why? (i think you know why, because you're doing instagram longer than me)
    on instagram the followers are highly responsive not like on twitter
    people usually sell a tweet on a 100k+ twitter account for $5, if you're lucky you can earn your money back with that tweet, but most likely you won't

    with a shoutout on a 350k instagram account with real followers, you would give your customers something which is much more valuable than just five bucks

    i also don't think if OP would like to loose his account because of spamming

    I can help you out. I've already dealt with a 250k+ followers account and been successful at it. My skype ID is the same as my BHW one.

    that's why it would be called spamming, to advertise other people's accounts, spammy websites 24/7
    it's just not a good idea on an account like this with so much potential
    a shoutout on a 350k account is a waste for only $5, maybe on a 5k account, but i wouldn't do that either
    fiverr is not the way to go imho
