Do you work backwards with monetisation before creating accounts?

    ...or do you decide that you like the niche and grow it and think that you will worry about monetisation once your account becomes big?

    I did the latter for a couple of accounts and I've just tried to switch them into sub-niches of the 2 main niches I am now in. They don't get as much engagement but there is no point in growing and wasting my time in an account I have no interest in trying to monetise.

    Most like to monetize after account is grown, but that does not mean grow an account totally clueless.
    Requires you to research and have some plans, and maybe test different methods to monetize.

    That's the exact question that has me searching the forum this evening, regarding some twitter accounts I recently started, and 100 more that I'll start as soon as I can figure out what my end game is going to be.

    I'm new at all of this. I never expected for a second that any measure of success would come easily, just like everything in the offline world worth doing.

    But I've got to admit that for a second or two, when I read this thread title, and it resonated so closely with my own immediate concern, I thought that maybe, just maybe the stars and planets had aligned in such a way as to provide me with some sort of cosmic "reach around". That would've really hit the spot tonight.

    Almost everyone thinks about monetisation once the account is big. But you'll have better results if you have already a monetisation in mind for a niche

    I don't understand why most people don't have a goal in mind from the start, reverse engineer what you want to achieve.
