    Hey,

    I have an account with 80k followers in the supercars niche with around 4k likes on average, which I think is pretty solid, but nobody contacts me for advertising which seems weird to me. Can anyone suggest me a solid and attractive bio? Thanks

    Do you own the images, or are they just repostings of other accounts?

    Brands want the image maker, not the copiers. So, if you have contact information on your Bio, but are not getting contacted, I'd assume you just repost someone else's images. Brands, will cut the middle man and go directly to the source if that is the case.

    Now, you'll get likes from regular people, but if you want to make money....

    Now, don't get me wrong, there are many accounts that just repost and get hired by brands. But, these are the ones with millions of followers and 10K-30K+ likes per post.

    I find pages with twice as many followers that I can tell are monetizing, and follow a similar lead in the bio. It's also good to ask people to turn on post notifications imo :p

    I am starting to think that the supercars niche is absolutely dead unless you are like 500k + ... I am not expecting to make $2000 by sitting on my ass all day with an 80k account, but honestly I think for an account of that size grown fully manually for 11 months and currently with around 4k likes on average per post... I think i should be making AT LEAST something? I've had one shoutout done for the past 40 days for $10 lol. Am I doing something wrong or? I guess I should start reaching out to people, no clue honestly. I have heard that other niches like fashion kill it, but I think with my size I should be doing fine and I am predicting to hit 100k in the next 35 days.

    I think it's also where you're advertising.. I manage a family members page in a women's niche not automobiles tho.. she has 63k roughly and she makes about $300 a week.
    It's not about followers it's about engagement truly.. the other thing is advertising. She lists Shoutouts on her eBay and also takes out simple ads in the paper and well as signed up to a few social influencer networks, and she also grows her account through a handful of engagement groups so her photos show up on the front page search feed sometimes which helps alot.

    This is just a couple things that can helps, also the search bar here is how I found some amazing tricks.. it won't happen overnight but you can double and triple your growth with the right tools and mindset ;)

    That's inspiring AF! Great job... Well as I said my page is at 81k followers grown manually for about 11 months and my engagement is between 3.5k - 5k per photo of course with some going over 7-8k. The only thing I've done is post my e-mail in the bio and above that I've written - Promotion/Ads on DM or E-mail. I guess I will start getting the ball rolling at about 100k, but i don't know. My photos seem to be doing even better now I just posted a photo 2 hours ago and it's at 2.3k likes at the moment and 13 comments. (i don't use telegram or engagement groups as i said it's all natural growth and engagement)

    have you listed your site with any shoutout selling websites? you can't expect to just sell shoutouts just because you have an account on instagram, you have to market yourself and let people know that you're willing to sell shoutouts!
