    In my last Instagram thread, I briefly touched upon the subject of Private Engagement groups and how building up an authoritative network can lead to massive, self-sustainable growth as well as increased and more consistent earnings.

    I'm a big lover of planning things out well and keeping detailed notes, which is why I keep detailed niche plans for all of my accounts. Now, while I would like to think that - one day - I'll have my hand in every niche out there, I really don't have the time or the money to focus on them all currently, which is why I decided to share my ideas.

    It's worth noting that I don't have accounts in every single one of these niches, however, I do know the "main" niche well enough to know that there is interest there.

    Fashion:

    Nowadays, young adults and teenagers are constantly seeking the latest and greatest fashion accessories and advice and Instagram is one of the places they go to stay updated. As a teen myself, it's very easy to spot up-and-coming trends that are starting to gain traction, which helps me to ride the wave.

    Fashion accounts are incredibly easy to monetize with various sponsorship opportunities, re-selling possibilities, and eCommerce stores, especially when you interlink accounts in this sort of network. I've found fashion brands to focus a lot on Social Media Marketing, which makes brand outreach easy and effective.

    Sports:

    I've never understood the fixation, personally, but there's no denying that people get very, very passionate about their favorite teams and clubs, which is good news for us! There are too many good sport niches out there to show in my graphic, but I've listed some ideas below.

    [​IMG]

    Luxury/ Travel:

    People like to see other's success and motivate themselves, which is why the Luxury niche is so easy to grow in. This is by far my fastest growing niche and there are literally millions of high-quality pictures out there.

    I've found the "Money" sub-niche (Literally posting pictures of stacks upon stacks of cash) to be the fastest growing out of them all, but they all grow well.

    I feel that travel ties really well in with Luxury as it draws in the same people looking for a glimpse into another life. Building up Country and City-specific accounts and then following people who posted to that Geo-Location is also another great way to build up accounts with great engagement as people often feel passionate about their local area.

    Urban Exploring and Drone accounts also fit really well into this niche as they give people the adrenaline buzz and a perspective on cities that people don't normally see.

    Technology:

    As a massive technology fan myself, I love keeping up-to-date with the latest technology news, which is what first got me into the tech niche. Just like with sports, there are a lot of people who are really passionate about the whole Console vs PC debate and the Xbox vs Playstation one, so creating a "Versus" Style account can work really well.

    Now, I know these plans aren't perfect. They work well as a visual representation of my thoughts, but I understand some of you may want to alter them or expand on them. I made them all using https://www.draw.io/ and have uploaded the files so that you can easily import them and pick up where I left off.

    When scheduling posting I put something like "Photo sent in by x" "See @x for more" "Brought to you by @x" etc. in my pictures' captions.

    It's also a good idea to mix it up a bit and shout out other accounts. This makes it less obvious for Instagram.

    Thanks man :) I've been setting up some Profile Picture templates and bio ideas as well recently, is that something you would be interested in seeing?

    I am instagram newbie. How do you manage such amount of accounts? Is instagram proper for men's items? I think about traffic source for eCommerce.
    How about competitivness in fashion niche? Necklace, rings and so on.

    You do great job! Thank you.

    Thanks for these graphs! It really explain how you get a good number on smaller account that are supertargeted and then you send these people to your money pages where you monitize. And after you can sell these small accounts because the followers you were interested in follow your big page already :) Good post again.

    @hasa1015 great post, qs for u

    1) are these strictly instagram accounts or does each one have parallel twitter/pinterest and/or individual websites as well
    2) would be great if you could talk more about your setup/planning for one of the niche accounts. ie # of posts per day, hashtag strategy, captions, where u get the image from/ideas etc.

    thanks!

    Ive been working on perfecting my own private network for the last few months and im on a slightly different train of thought, my goal is too absolutely dominate one niche and exploiting that as much as I can and when the time is right launch websites dedicated to specific sub-niches within that main niche.


    Reading through this and the last thread you made on the subject I see that we have both come to the same conclusions and same ideas on how to run things, pretty neat.
    Enjoyed your thread.


    looking at these webs i can't help but think that you are generalizing your niches just a tad too much, Unless those arrows dont necessarily mean that they will point traffic from smaller accounts to your larger mains.
    for example in the sports webs you won't be pushing racing, snow and rugby traffic to one or a few very general sports accounts.
    hell under 'racing' nascar and f1 would have quite a small amount of fan overlap.

    Maybe its just how these graphs are set up. lol

    I manage them all with MassPlanner. Have a look at another one of my threads, https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/100-000-instagram-followers-a-day-blueprint-to-success.913728/, that explains it.

    Yeah. It's good because you can sell off all of your "small" accounts and make some serious profit while keeping your main account.

    Thanks :)

    I only really deal with Instagram marketing and prefer to keep it all on one platform, but if you have the time I would highly recommend that you branch out. If people like the content on Instagram, the chances are that they'll like it on another platform.

    The graphs are just general niche ideas, nothing specific.

    My actual cross-posting is much more specific and interlinks a ton of accounts, growing them all as much as I can.

    Well I already run hundreds of accounts in various niche , if you can make a tut on how to make a cool logo for IG in 5 mins it would be awesome. For bio , I think I got how to make good bio by just watching others but would like to see how you spin them too

    Nice planning. I've got something similar arranged but with a particular style/aesthetic rather than a subniche. I'm also planning on using online stores to monetize, but I've run into the problem of branding: do I have one main brand and feed the other accounts into the main, or do I set up a brand for each page? Would love to discuss with you about this, PM me?

    @hasa1015 thanks for this post, im currently developing my own network right now im at 20 acc, hopefully finish 20more acc by tomorrow and end up with 100acc by the end of the month, these post of your help me a lot.

    It would be great if you make a more detailed post how to grow each acc faster, i mean by how to properly target hashtags the proper way and Follow/unfollow method (setting, how to find active acc to follow their follower etc)

    so for example, I have a football news website, centered on the majors football leagues, we have 1 facebook pages centered on the main league of my country, and 1 for international leagues, plus another for highlights, do you think would be good to have fanpages centered around players? 1 for each major players? we haven't tried until now, with the other pages especially the international leagues one we get blocked from fb time to time, for copyrights inf. I worry that with the players may be the same, here Facebook is the main social media used, all the others social together may be are less that 5%, so also we use them not really much.

    I have now scraped about 5k images and I can surely use 3k for im IG accounts. I would like to use 5 in the exact same niche since it's a big audience in this niche.
    Should I use all my 3k pictures on all of the 5 accounts or should I split them to 600 "unique" images for each account?

    If I could use them for all should I post the same images on all my 5 accounts at the same day or should I randomize this if it's possible with massplanner? (Now I have only a few accounts and each account has it's own image folder or repost)

    you dont even need too use those images if you set the auto-reposted up properly. but yeah if you are going to use the same images make sure they post a at different times to be safe.

    I don't want to use the auto repost on this 5 accounts because I have some nice pictures and most of my "competior" use watermark on their images.
    I need to take a look at massplanner how to setup something like this.
