    Hi,

    I currently have 5 sites that get from 200 to 1000 visits per day each (through an automatic advertisement of posts on Reddit), while all focus on specific niches. They are all Blogspot unfortunately, but I am thinking of transferring them when I see at least a little bit of profit.

    I am an Amazon Affiliate, where even though I get clicks, I don't get any sales. :(

    I also have twenty Instagram accounts that automatically upload a new pic every two days. Every pic gets about 300-700 likes. All from real followers.

    If anyone has any idea, how I can improve or monetize properly, just drop a message here.

    Get this moved to the Making Money forum...

    ... but to answer your question, you have a traffic quality problem. Your traffic, which you say comes form "automatic advertisement of posts on Reddit" and Instagram is not targeted enough to get sales at those volumes.

    Either go after mass generic traffic or learn how to attract qualified traffic through SEO or better ad placement. You'll also need to look at your content to see why it's not converting.

    You targeted the wrong niche.

    Use it for promotion like shoutouts (above 10k followers) or sell it at a reasonable price to reinvest in IG game

    I don't know. Can I use my friend's AdSense account to save time on the process of applying for an account? I heard that it takes a day or two...
    My content is original, so I don't think I can have any problem.

    Try using CPA Offers instead of amazon affilaite; you may have more success there

    It's movie reviews(i didn't expect too much from this), homestead (which I thought will bring me affiliate sales), one about self-improvement, one about creative writing, - and one more that i don't want to share its subject here.


    How can I find people that would be interested in shoutouts? Will they simply come organically? or do I have to do something

    SORRY, GUYS. Huge noob here.

    Adsense can take weeks. This past year at least they have tightened up approval.

    Sign up for online portals like shoutcart or people would ask for the same if you can get your page grown to a noticeable level. 50k is pretty decent to get regular requests
