A while ago, I posted this (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ion-niche-account-need-monetizing-advice.html), looking for advice on how much to charge for a sponsored post on a fashion niche IG account with over 170K followers, 6.5K average likes and over 160 comments on average (per post). As mentioned in the thread (link above), I had a large number of emails from brands that I hadn't responded to - simply because I didn't know how to determine the cost-per-post on a fashion niche page like mine. The general consensus was that I could get away with an asking price of $100. So, I logged into my gmail account and responded to about 20 requests (I have over 200 requests). My asking price was $100. Seven of those brands (mainly app developers looking to promote their fashion apps) got back to me, confirming their interest and requesting my PayPal details. Four brands counter-offered me between $75 and $85 per post. A couple asked if I could post two sponsored photos in return for my $100 asking price, and the rest haven't gotten back to me yet. At this point, I realized my IG's potential, and, thanks to BHW user 'WonderKid', I grew some balls and responded to about five more emails, with an asking price of $150. I have heard back from two of those clients with a 'go-ahead', and the rest counter-offered $100 per post. I have never made a single penny off of IM, and this past couple of weeks alone, I've been able to earn about $900. Considering that I don't have to spam my audience with five shitty sponsored posts a day to make that much, I think the outcome is amazing. I am also particularly happy that a few clients have been so overwhelmed with the response from advertising with me, that they have made arrangements to advertise again. I am also excited beyond words that these are just the result of responding to only 10% of brand requests in my inbox. I hope the others would prove to be just as fruitful. To everyone who've helped me out with tips, and to all those long, detailed, PMs full of IM life lessons, I am extremely thankful. And to everyone else wondering what their asking price should be, I hope this serves as an example of what to expect. Brands are allocating budgets exclusively for Instagram Influencer campaigns, and they are paying big. Don't hesitate to ask for more. P.S. Next up on my journey to quitting my full-time job, would be to launch my own fashion website. I have absolutely no experience in running a website (but I have worked for a fashion magazine and know my way around what works in terms of content), and zero idea on how best to monetize (adsense, affiliate, etc.), but I am reading up. Plus, there is BHW. Thank you always! Oh, and my 170K IG just turned 180K today!
