    Hello all! Marketing semi noob here looking to meet some fellow internet entrepreneurs.

    Attempting to learn something new and valuable everyday, but not sure which direction to head.

    I own and manage a few instagram accounts with ranging from 5-15k followers and i want to find good ways to monetize them.

    Right now Im only using shopify and dropshipping a couple physical products but it hasn't been doing as well as i want it to so im openly looking for new ideas.

    I am also friends with a couple huge influencers that have a few hundred thousand followers so im actively looking for offers to promote or build around them.

    Feel free to send me a message & thanks for having me here!

    Can you match the Niche of your accounts with some CPA or CPI offers through PeerFly or OGAds? If so, build a webpage on a domain you own, as a passthrough to a affiliate link created landing page. Use a url shortner and promote the link to your domain passthrough web address. This way when IG scans your link it finds no affiliate content. Now, promote that url shortened link and watch affiliate sales come in. Some put the link in their profile page. Just be careful and read through as much info on here to keep from being banned.

    Thanks for the input! I am really new to CPA and CPI so PeerFly & OGAds will be something ill look into asap.

    I own plenty of domains, can you elaborate on creating a passthrough?

    I can't just redirect my domain to the affiliate link somehow?

    Thanks again!

    If you already have a physical product I would personally stick with that - margins must be better than with cpa I'm guessing.

    Maybe you need some split testing to optimise your site and also to scale up what you are already doing to drive traffic.

    Also as well as the social side you could work on some SEO techniques to promote your shopify store as well.

    Yup FB ads will be good I'm sure.
    Well work on your on page SEO, get some unique product descriptions added if you haven't already. And start posting in forums, do some guest posting etc - basically any way you can promote your site directly.
