    Hello!
    Been lurking around for a long time, started many projects, but can never stay consistent enough to see any results.

    I'll keep this short.
    I have a passion for bodybuilding, and I was playing with the thought of starting a personal IG fitness account. I'd be able to possibly make money in the long run, aswell as feeding my passion.
    But maybe starting a blog /w amazon affiliate would be the better option?
    Any other suggestions?

    I would really, really appreciate your opinions!

    If it is a hobby past time you enjoy, it's easier to be motivated to write/produce content for your sites and social media channels.

    Look for health/fitness affiliate offers, not just Amazon.

    On eBay UK there are over 600,000 items, eBay affiliate is often overlooked, another alternative to Amazon

    So maybe start with a blog, then build socials?

    That is exactly what i was thinking :)
    Ah yes, i see. I will look into that. Do you suggest that I try building a brand? I was thinking of creating the blog very personalized. As in writing about my experiences as I go, and also informative articles. Does that sound OK?
    Also, is it bad to create a domain from scratch? Im not very experienced in buying expired ones.

    I wouldn't bother with Amazon. Not that it's not worth it but if you want 3-5% affiliate commissions, go ahead. For Instagram fitness, the money is in the sponsorship's. Get yourself recognised, create crazy lifting videos like Bradley Martyn with hot girls involved, offer free advice on workout form and best exercises for mass etc and build a following.

    You can then sell shoutouts from big companies or if you're big enough, you can get sponsorship's.

    Maybe im better off starting my IM journey with something else then. I will never be able to create these kinds of videos/pictures. Im just your everyday gym bro, not a beast like Bradley.
