    I have a 75k follower Instagram account in the fitness niche, and I'm listed on most major markets. I still get very little of my income from shoutouts, with only the occasional DM for a purchase or sale from a shoutout marketplace.

    Right now I'm mostly focused on selling personal training through my Instagram account, so I haven't been able to focus on finding brands to sell shoutouts to and expand that part of the the business.

    How can I fix the abysmal amount of shoutouts I'm selling? I have 75k followers but only grossing $30/mo in shoutouts. How can I find people who want to buy shoutouts?

    I would say just be patient and let the businesses come to you. Make good connections and you'll get repeat buyers and they will be more likely to tell their friends.

    What is the username of the account? Feel free to PM me, I have several IG pages as well and one in the fitness niche

    It's @gym.desire, it has OK engagement, nothing crazy but not bad.

    I just recently added a "DM me for business" thing in my description, so we'll see.

    No idea actually, at the time I had even higher engagement than I do now (6% or something), and when I emailed them they just gave me a copy pasted response. Really not sure what happened there, but I've heard similar stories from others about Shoutcart.

    In your IG page bio, leave your e-mail address. Something like , "For shotouts e-mail us at..." . This works effectively.

    you need to get more followers, work on growing your page first. 75k is quite small for shout outs. the bigger the better and youl get more people asking
