    Hi,

    My fashion niche Instagram account just recently hit 32K followers. I get an average of 1400 likes and about 50 comments per post. Demographic: Majority Europe/US
    I could really use some advice from those who have experience in IM on how I could make money from the account.
    My website (carrying the same name as the IG account) is currently being developed, but for the time-being, I'd like to know what my options are and how I can benefit financially from an IG account like this.
    I'd like to hear from anyone who's had experience in monetizing via instagram. It would also be greatly appreciated if you could let me know what to expect on a daily basis, based on the options you recommend.
    I have looked into selling shoutouts, but I realized followers aren't necessarily delighted about those, so I'd like to hear about CPC...etc. Best methods. Where best to sign-up. Companies to work with (if any).

    P.S. You may need to know that I am a beginner, and this is my first attempt at monetizing in IM. Any advice?

    THANK YOU!

    in my country, selling the product combined with selling shootout is trending now, for an account with 30-50k followers shootout rate about 5$ (6hours -12 hours posting time)

    IG is really more for building a brand/following that leads people back to your site. So your best bet is to get your website up and running ASAP and start using IG to get people back to your website.

    I'd suggest to build some content around Amazon's merchandise, so you can make money via Amazon Affiliates plus Adsense. Unless you run your own shop, it is hard to beat AS+Amazon. $5 shout outs? In some niches 2 adsense clicks would make more. With 32K followers don't expect to get rich, though.

    Sell shoutouts. Don't be like me. I deleted mine (personal reasons), and now I wish I had it still.

    Im in the same position as the OP. I have a 48K niche Fishing/Outdoors account with 2-3K average likes per pic and gaining over 1K followers every 5 days. Every single user following me is in my niche which is amazing.
    What makes my account unique is the fact that it is my personal account. I haven't come across a larger personal account in the same niche area.

    I'll be watching this thread as I am a noob when it comes to monitizing money.

    Easy way= develop the site + write contents
    Monetize with Adsense + Amazon + CPA (related offers)

    Better Way= do all of above + sign up with PPV and also use retargeting ads with banners
    Build your list = from ur sitelink take ur visitors to a squeeze page + use a popup on home page for visitors to enter email to subscribe

    hope that helps ;)
