    Just curious what are the difference btw accounts making original content and repost. For example, there is a men's fashion acc creating original content like the pic I attached here. meanwhile, there are some men's fashion accs posting similar content.(But they just repost and give original content owners credits) They both have similar followers (let's say 300K) and similar engagement (like 8K - 12K and comments 50 - 300) ....

    What are the difference btw those 2 types of accounts in,

    1, market price; (if both of them want to sell the account, are the prices different? how much the different is?)

    2, shout - out (business promotion) price. (How much is the difference?)

    3, conversion rate; (they both target the same audience. If both of them decide to sell online men's fashion products, are there any different btw those 2 accounts?)

    4, others; (If you have something I did not mentioned in mind)

    It pretty much is the same... 80% of accounts like that just grab content from sites like Tumblr, Pinterest, other Instagram accounts etc... no one care where you get the content as long as your audience is real and it is engaged with your post, they will pay the same for the shout out.

    Of course, there could be problems with the owners of the original content, that can claim their copyrights and get your account banned, but that's another story.

    Pintreast do that all day i think most bot also do that.

    It about getting followers and shoutouts.

    It just account duplication really .

    I suspect the better the picture or deal on the shoutout wins.

    1. I expect my private/original content to be worth $0 at any size. Since it's my private original content, no one else can make it if they bought my account. My repost accounts would be worth whatever the market price is.

    2. On my private original account I can get away with much higher prices to a much smaller audience, because I've established the account as an influencer in the niche, if I say go there for that service, people will actually do it - My customers are returning all the time, because they see the direct benefint when they get customers themself telling they saw their service on my account. A general reposting account you need to be HUGE to earn anything on shout outs.
