    Thanks for the share yet this information is already shared in another threads. What isn't shared is monetizing methods, and almost everyone goes for shoutouts. What about CPA, affiliate marketing, CPC networks, etc? Do they work? Do we have another alternatives?

    It would be nice if someone created a guide only about monetizing instagram and not about growing accounts but seems like I need to try it by myself and discover what works.

    You call that "low settings" and you can't even spell "monetize"

    What a freaking expert, don't follow his settings guys, your account will be gone in a day.

    What types of comments do you post on peoples pictures? Do you ask them to follow you?

    I doubt you can follow 2500 per day without getting 24h bans

    Does your bot uses public or private API? I follow over 2000 with no problems ..
    I go with 600-800 on new accounts for the first days

    Pretty generic guide but some people really do need you to really take them through the process step by agonizing step... so this may be useful for some people. The only thing i would avoid, as mentioned by others, is that you are advising people to follow WAY too many at accounts at one time. I would suggest that new accounts should not follow more than 500+/- a day. If you are planning to follow more than that... invest in aged accounts.

    The simplest explanation to monetize IG traffic with CPA offers is by picking an offer within your niche and building a presell page around it.

    I usually comment something like:

    Nice!
    Like It!

    but my comment settings are bad :) I wouldnt ask people to follow me tho, might be good but a bit needy for my part :)

    I Might have been a little hard on the settings.

    My main point with this guide was to make people realize that having quality bio, pictures and regulary posting is really important. And also to have a good start you need a lot of pictures on the account. This is a basic guide :) Will change the settings in my post :)

    I personally think that there is more money in doing shoutouts than CPA, CPC etc. You need a lot of followers to monetize from that :)

    Well as Brad suggested its probably better to air on the safe side when using a bot to follow/comment/like.

    Other than that its a good post by OP and it will be beneficial to a lot of members

    That's pretty vague. That's the same as saying create a youtube account, choose a niche, upload videos with PPD link and wait for money. But yeah, I got the idea, that's what I'm doing right now.

    How you post your pictures? You use Follow Liker or post by phone. I have 44 accounts running just post 1 picture a day from follow liker. Is hard setup it to post more them 1 picture a day, because my automation take 10 minutes, the interval betwenn pictures posted, because it i post just 1 photo a day. My setting is like the same as you, but i dont comment, i just do like, follow and share. Because comment have a high risky of get reported.

    I Don't have that many accounts so i post manually with phone. I just pause the bot for a while, then i post a picture then i start the bot again :) I only do this with 5 accounts at the time because i feel that i can make just as much money on those five if i focus hard on them, rather then having 50 accounts which i wouldnt be able to manage. I haven't gotten any bans or complaints on any of my accounts. Ever :)
