    HI guys,
    I just have an eye opener, I think one of the best way to make money on instagram is to sell accounts.
    What do you think?
    Have you ever sold one?
    i've sold one for 9K dollars.
    Cheers

    Yes, it is obviously a great but while you are growing your account you can do shoutouts and use the money you make off it to buy more shoutouts or pay for expenses then you can sell it after high growth.

    Tip: micro niche buyers will pay more for an account

    Best way is to do shoutouts until you sell it ;)

    Instagram has too many scammers. Best bet is to build up accounts and sell. But the whole buy low/sell high business model doesn't work.

    A really small but profitible niche that people would be interesting in like cycling accident attorneys ($100+ CPC keyword)

    That would be close to a micro niche, you would need to go a bit smaller like cat print bracelets

    In my honest opinion, selling your account loses the potential business you could have made from monetiziation.

    I agree but if you're producing multiple accounts at once, time spent managing the monetization might be better spent just building accounts to sell? I'm going to be selling some accounts at some point in the next month and I'm fully aware that whoever buys them from me is going to make more money than I sell them for but I'm alright with that.

    Monetization and selling accounts are both money spinners if you're good at them.

    Shoutout is an engagement killer, hate it.Shoutout is an engagement killer, hate it.
    It's not about buying an account then resell it, it's about growing one then sell it.

    Had around 200k followers with an average of 11K likes.
    BTW: an account in the fitness girl niche , getting 115k+ followers every month. HOW much for it?

    As others have said, do shoutouts while growing the account but not to many. If you have a few accounts you can shoutout your own accounts. I've sold a few accounts for $1-2k, but $9k is crazy man. Good job.

    when you see how hard it is to grow account, if you have a good one and you sell it for 1K,it's a dumb move, in my opinion.
