    I'm not really a 'top' member here but I though I would throw out how I made money with instagram. It's long and doesn't really rake in the most amount of cash but I was happy with it since it actually worked. I don't use this because I went a bit over the top and got a few of my accounts banned.

    I'll get straight into it, before I start though if you think this whole scheme is stupid, well, it made money, so I wouldn't say it's that bad haha, probably not as good as other methods though.

    First I started off making a shoutout account, if there is one thing I have learnt with having 70,000 followers on my personal account is that people love shoutouts and they will follow you like a sheep to get one.

    So I started this account and created a few logos with cooltext, I also did some work in photoshop, created a nice little 250x250 logo, and some other posts that I would soon upload.

    I simply used an instagram bot, now I use instaget pro, which is slowly starting to fail now which is partly why I got banned haha, ever since they introduced damn captchas on instagram

    I set the bot on a continuous follow, going to 7500 to 0 to 7500, I would aim for about 100 followers an hour, which worked well, I also added about 6k fakes to the account just to improve legitimacy to new followers, I guess this isn't necessary if you don't know how to do that.

    I would search for shoutout tags such as #shoutout (obviously haha,) and use the comment bot to post those spammy comments, such as 'nice pic, if you want a shoutout you should follow us! -username-' worked very nice.

    As I started to get a lot more followers I promoted the page by asking people to share the page, which causes a train I guess, one person does it > more > more > more people share it.

    I wrote in the description that I would not give regular shoutouts until 20k followers, just to give a reason as to why I wasn't actually shouting people out haha, instagrammers hate shoutouts but they always beg for one!

    I created a website with a paypal link and included it in the profile description, for £5 you could buy an instant shoutout, as I was only shouting a couple of people a day to prevent spamming people, at least i was actually shouting people out instead of those pages that just promote each other, ergh... (bestfacts)

    Simples!
    Give it a try haha, I would like to see if it would still work now. Not saying this is amazing or anything just throwing it out there into the world if anyone wants to make use of it.

    I've got a 9k account which is making about 20-30usd a day from shoutouts promoting fashion brands.

    And a 53k account for my own clothing label, I think it's made about only 2000usd in 5 months.

    Nice, how were you able to automate the actual shoutout process, or did you just fulfill it yourself within a 24 hour window?
