    ive seen a few hints of this but not researched it yet just starting, is this a proper thing? ebay has a 'partner network' whereby you earn commissions of items that are sold via my promotions and amazon has the same thing (so thats of course legit) but what about promoting via mass IG accounts?

    I have 60+ accounts now that im using for a project but they dont use websites, so im thinking of signing up and promoting certain products though those accounts to get more use + $$ out of them, is this a thing? are other making some cash with this method?

    im also working on Ogads with another set of accounts, but the niche of the accounts i'd use for this doesnt really mesh well with OGads.

    Thanks!

    note: reading up on this further and searching through this forum. (should have read up more before i started writing this, but whatever here i am writing this and you are still reading this.... hi ...ok i'll stop rambling)

    I think there are a few challenges to master to make this idea successfull.
    When I remeber this right amazon affiliate requires you to have some sort of website or blog where you have to link to and from there you link to amazon. So direct linking amazon aff link in IG may be a problem (not quite sure about this). Also cloaking is a problem for amazon so no hidden promotion of the products on IG.
    Some say that they prefer ebay aff. as the second chance (in case they get banned at amazon).
    I think you will also have to think about the IG niche vs. wide range ob products on amazon problem. And find a satisfining way to get enough people click on your bio link...

    i'd actually prefer to do it with ebay since they cater better to my niche, just need to find out if i need to set up a store and if i am aloud to post links via IG and on mass.

    The link posting on IG won't be a problem since you are offering legit products on a trusted page.
    I find it always a bit annoying that IG still won't allow links in the pic description.

    Maybe keep it lower? 2 to 1 would be safer for sure

    Instagram does not open the bio link externally in safari or chrome yes? It is now opened internally within the app, making earning via affiliates tough

    I think only a minority uses IG on chrome, mainly through the app itself

    yes of course, but one is even more safer. there are plenty of others running 5 accounts to one proxy, but it also depends on how you run the accounts. 3 to 1 is fine if you know what youre doing and can accept the risk.
