    Hello Fellow BlackHatters,

    I hope everyone had a good weekend. I am now at a little over 100k followers across 30+ accounts (all in the same niche) and am gaining 6k followers a day. As such, I think it is time to start thinking about how to monetize. The idea that I've had for a while is to set up a shopify store and sell tshirts / items related to my niche. The issue that I am running into is how best to utilize the 30 accounts without being banned. Posting the website link in the bio of each account is way to risky and will almost definitely result in a ban so I have to think outside the box. Currently I'm thinking of the following options:

    1. Use the 30 accounts to give shoutouts to the 1 main account - I am thinking of posting on 6 of the accounts a day, three in the morning three at night, (I post one picture in the morning and 1 at night on every account) giving a shoutout to the main account brand instagram page. Do you think putting the link in the post would be to risky? I feel this method is probably the safest, but I will not be fully utilizing the accounts as it basically equates to each account giving a shout out once a week.

    2. Redirect links - this is probably the riskiest of the options. I am thinking of putting the link of the store in the bio of all the accounts using redirect links. I feel that instagram would probably detect this very quickly, but I would love to hear anyone's feedback on this method.

    3. Any other ideas people have?

    Thanks for all the help. Gaining 6k followers a day, if I could even convert 3-5 sales a day from this traffic I would be extremely happy.

    Thanks,
    King

    Anyone? This is definitely the most important part of the journey (also the most difficult).

    haha if only it were this easy. I'm beginning to think shouting out to the main account will probably be the only way to utilize these accounts. But I'm going to make some tester accounts and see if anything happens

    Bumping as I'm in the same boat.
    I have 30 accounts in semi related niches.

    I'm using followliker so it might be a bit harder to funnel traffic as I can't log on manually on a phone to tag the main account in pictures. Only mention is a comment

    This shouldn't really be a problem. Just put the link in the bio of the one brand IG, and direct all users to that IG page using @links in the captions. Do this over a course of time.. Then slowly add the link to the bio of your largest supporting accounts. Don't rush anything. Just make it genuine and organic feeling.

    May I ask what is your niche? This could help determine what course of action to take for monetization

    Thanks Steve,

    So I guess I'll just put the @link in the caption of say 10 photos a day (5 in the morning 5 at night) and hope that drives traffic to the real site. I will also slowly add the link to the bio of supporting accounts as well. Does anyone else have more feedback?

    Thanks
