    :cool: Hey guys,

    I have seen a lot of new people but even old members in here asking about how much they should charge per shoutout.
    I am not some sort of a specialist in the Instagram business, but I believe that this is something that I should address and answer.

    Some people here make charts and tables, where they put e.g. 20K = 10$, 30K = 17$ per shoutout, etc.
    This is just not correct.

    There are many factors and variables that play role in how much you will ask for and you need to keep that in mind.
    It all depends on whom you are offering it to, whether he knows a lot about Instagram and the average prices for shoutouts,
    if you are persuasive and have good communication skills, etc.

    When I joined some of the Shoutout groups in here, there were prices for a 80k account such as 15$, which is a fairly normal price for us BHW members that know the value of an Instagram shoutout and know what to expect from it.

    But let me give you an example of how I made my first money on Instagram.
    My account had 2k followers and I didn't know basically anything about the average prices of shoutouts, which actually turned out to be my benefit!

    I offered a shoutout to a random girl on my page for 20$!
    20$ for a 2K account!!! (all the BHW members know how overpriced this is..)
    and she paid for it in within an hour. :cow04:

    I have always charged my customers a lot of money and I do it until today.
    They usually don't know the norms and average prices and you should make an advantage out of that!

    Hope that helps!
    If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to PM me :)

    Finding and targeting your customers is a crucial part of the business, so it is important to develop that skill :)

    you'll make a good politician one day with answers like this lol

    you could have answered: "on instagram" which is full of with bored teenage girls, who don't have better thing to do than comparing their e-vagina 24/7, of course everyone wants to be the first, so they aren't hesitant to throw daddies money at you for providing shoutout service and because they're young and gullible, they don't know the actual rates, so they can end up paying irrealistic prices
    i guess if you use the right keywords when searching for "victims" or even if you don't, it's a numbers game, the more DM you send with your offer, the more chance that you will make a sale, but if you don't want to message people out of the blue, it would involve a bit of manual work though, because most of the time you can find out the victim's financial situation just by looking at the pics, so you'll know what to expect and you can make your offer accordingly

    Great job OP!

    If there's a certain "place" where you get these types of clients, be sure to milk it as much as you can!

    I could answer the way you suggested, but I believe that is obvious and the user would not recieve any value from that reply.
    I try to provide useful information instead of irrelevant made up description of a customer.

    I scrape my customers manually instead of sending a crazy amount of DM's to random people.
    Target your customers manually to make sure it full-fill your criterias for a potential customer/client.

    One question: If I understood it, you send out your offers in DM manually, by targeting manually, but how many DMs can you send within 24h for example? I'm not asking for an exact number, but some guidance. Oh and is it safe to DM people manually from my phone while FL is resting (I usually stop it for 4-5 hours a day)?

    Thanks for the infromative post btw :)

    I do not DM people on daily basis (I am fairly lazy, haha), but when I do it takes approximately 2 minutes to find the user, copy and paste the message and send it. It takes a bit longer but it is worth it, believe me! :) if your account is resting, do not even DM, just let it rest and don't make any activity on it, so it is overall less suspicious!

    That depends on how many DM's you send. If you send 2000 DM's within an hours, sure you will be banned.
    You need to be cautious and have patience, mainly in the beginning! :)

    I find many people like these also. Instagram is full of stupid vain, vapid, narcissistic attention whoring girls.

    we disagree then, obvious or not, it seems he didn't know the answer, that's why he asked and you answered him with empty phrases - hence my metaphor - now how is your answer supposed to help him exactly? but it's just more like a rhetorical question, because it's your thread and it's not among my plans to derail it

    Whether she's a rich idiot or not, she purchased the shoutout from me, so I am more than delighted in any case!

    You should be happy to have them, haha. They are your customers!

    I've been around for almost two years and never read anything on these shoutout groups in BHW! Links please? :)

    Even $15 for an 80k account is still ridiculous in my opinion. It can all depend on what you're selling but I used to have a 10k Twitter account promoting adult cams and would be lucky to get 1 free signup per tweet.

    Usually if you are in a very profitable niche you can manage to pull about .50 USD for a shoutout per 15,000 followers.

    To your request this rate is for a 1 hour period and make sure all activity is natural and then remove it per your request.
