    Shoutouts are very unlikely with this niche although you could approach various people like owners of websites and blogs or authors of books in the same niche (activist/conspiracy/truth seeking) and see if they would be interested in paying you for a feature on your page. I would probably wait until you reach at least 50k though. Then there is always CPA... In my opinion, there are far better niches for monetization purposes.

    I have to agree with anthonynyc. Are you asking for a list of business that pay you to promote on Instagram? I can list a few if that's what you need.

    iight well alot of my followers are into health also, just throwing that out there, maybe i should start a new account with the health niche and then shout myself out and buy shoutouts from others on the new ig for health and then monetize that one

    The health (I assume you mean "health" as in fitness-related health, not like medicine) niche is certainly a better one in terms of monetization options. Lots of possibilities to make money there, especially by selling shoutouts to all these wannabe "fitness models," other health-related pages, and, most importantly, various smaller and medium sized brands that sell all kinds of health products. The ONE major problem is see with this is that the health/fitness niche is way over-saturated. There are tons of very large accounts out there and it's VERY difficult to compete with them. That doesn't mean it can't be done although it will likely take a while before you can monetize that sort of page simply because of the sheer number of large and medium size accounts that already exists. Unless you have 30-50k+ followers, I don't think anyone will bother paying YOU for a shoutout when there are so many other options. It will also be difficult to post quality content, again simply because everyone else is already posting the same content over and over and people are sick of seeing the same pictures posted by literally every single health/fitness page they follow.

    Your accounts are made for long term business and not to sell shoutouts at the moment.
    Buy a domain and create a website such as a blog and fill it with good content.
    Money will come later...

    Also try looking into CB.

    I've promoted CB health products on IG before and I had decent results. Test both direct links and LP's though. I had different results when I tested them.
