I think i miss the follow and unfolow idea..
I started this about 2 months ago with not alot of effort because I have other income streams I focus on, but I can say it works forsure, I got a small network of only about 7.5k followers, all real, and all with little effort.
Won't you get your accounts in trouble for taking others content pictures and repost it?
also, what is the niche of your friends accounts, are they all shout out accounts?
Ohhits that easy? Okay
Forgrt these gigs with their fake accounts. Waste of time
I wonder the same...hopefully he can reply to this.
Just imagine you build an accountfor months and have allready 50k followers and its gone. .....
I have an IG with 9.2K followers, and I get my posts mostly from other people on IG. Of course, I give them credit.
The biggest pages in my niche have hundreds of thousands to millions of followers, all the content they have is from other people on IG as well.
It's safe to say that you have nothing to worry about as long as you give credit. You can put "DM me if you want your post taken down", something along those lines, if you are really worried.
Let's analyze someone who's making some decent money
What do I dislike? Post quality. I think they could clean up their account with higher quality pictures
Additionally, their captions aren't great
What are they doing well?
^Here's one of their posts. This is recycled content (seen the picture a million times). This is how you should be posting pictures
You take, and post as your original content: No promoting other blogs or giving credit to other blogs
If other blogs want your promotion they need to pay to get it. Otherwise you can't do this
^Monetization = Shout out
Also, click the link in their bio. Full on E-Commerce store. By far my favorite way to make money on IG
TLDR: As long as you are adding value your account + not doing anything that will get your account flagged (buying mentions, botting aggressively, etc)
Your account will not get banned
Awesome to hear that you're taking action. Keep growing/ start monetizing at 100k followers. What's awesome about being at 10k is you should start snowballing soon (picking up more and more followers faster and faster)
Sell shout outs or monetize with CPA
Amazing advice Euphorix, he's the man to take advice from. Good luck to all you guys trying it out!
Were do you sell your shoutouts?
Solid writeup.. Thanks for sharing..
Thanks OP for such a clear and easy to follow instructions for a solid method as it seems. Already doing the first steps of it.
Btw, it is allowed to have up to 5 IG accounts by one person. There is even an option in IG (profile settings) "add account". It's not very convenient to switch between accs since you will have to log out and log in again every time you want to use a different account.
@Euphorix, could you clarify on captions - what kind of captions to put on pictures?
Just started this today, Have around 35 posts now. Gonna reach 100 today then start the shoutout account as I don't have the capital to invest right now.
A person just followed me who is obviously something similar. 3.5k followers 1.5kfollowing but has only 10 more posts than me and has been doing it since june whereas I have today. Any clues as to what theyre doing?
The quantity of posts doesn't really matter especially at the beginning. With your top 35 posts you pretty much can stop posting new stuff and just keep following new people every hour and you will be growing as before. The other thing is that it is better to post regularly to keep your followers engages from the start. So in future when you will have a lot of followers, you will be getting high amount of likes to your posts which will increase your position in selling shoutouts.
I was worried about reposting other people's stuff, considering that I was "borrowing" pics from world top brands. So I googled on this matter and found interesting article.
You can google "Instagram Reinforces Ban On Nudity And Sharing Other People’s Photos" - its article on Techcrunch.
Long story short, based on what is said in the article, IG will do nothing about it until the owner of the photo will spot you took his photo and claim his rights. Only then IG will get involved. But it's better to read the article.
Hey! I Have just one question. Will there be any copyright issues or our instagram account can be blocked for reporting content? Like you have mentioned we can post pictures from other accounts.
Amazing Guide! Thanks.
This may or may not have been posted on BHW but another potential decent way to get followers that doesn't require AS much effort is to first find a bunch of semi large (I'd say 100k+) blogs in your niche - follow them, then wait a few hours and then re-follow them. I've noticed from following a few thousand people within the last couple of days that a bunch of people I'm already following have been popping up on the follower's list of the big boi blogs in my niche. Checked out their counts and most of them seem to have a pretty decent follower ratio. So it seems that they're taking advantage of people using the follow4follow method. I've just started using this method so I'll post back with updates.
