    Good morning guys.
    A few days ago I hit the small goal of 10k followers, it took me a long time to build it up, at the time I didn't even consider making money from IG until I saw many people making money, so I thought maybe I can do the same.
    Since coming to BlackHatWorld and reading some threads about focusing on your Niche and how its worked for so many other members.
    So here it goes.
    I have an IG account with around 10.2k real followers @mysterykidx, I post trippy and psychedelic images, with original quotes or articles that I write myself, than the Idea hit me, let me get in contact with a friend of mine who sell's wholesale t shirts and he was more than willing to help me out with his crazy designs that fits perfectly in to my Instagram account.
    Made a post about my idea and had very positive feedback from a few members, giving me some fuel to get on the move.
    In the next couple of days I will create a website where the T shirts will be displayed.
    Will start off with 3-5 t shirts limited amount around 10-20 each (Don't have money for more), making them special, focusing on quality and not quantity.
    Once I build it up will add additional t shirts.
    This also gave me the idea of creating an EBAY shop and just let it run as an extra.
    The week before the site is up and T shirts are up for sale, will do a contest of the t shirts "Comment your size and have the chance to win this t shirt in your size" building up momentum and engagement.
    There will be 3-5 contests done, depending on the number I choose to go with after choosing the designs from my wholesale's friend.
    Another friend of mine has a quality following base on a gaming site called twitch, he will also help promote the t shirts, its going to help.
    With time build up the Facebook page and see if this idea blooms.
    I think this could work, I am sharing it with you guys to know your opinion and tips for I am just a beginner in this area.
    Thank you guys
    One love
    MKX ;)

    Your 'interesting' niche is a statement niche.

    So you could promote t-shirts or anything statement related... even coffee mugs with trippy images, or accesories, as bracelets or rubber bands.

    No matter what you choose, you could even develop this account into a sort of fashion brand.

    Great monetization strategy.

    How much net profit are you looking at per shirt? You may want to go with a dropship t-shirt company like mentioned in previous posts. You also have to take into account that while T-Shirts are great, they don't sell to every consumer. You may want to launch immediately with an entire product line up (mugs, shirts, posters, cheap jewelry, etc ) while the "juice" is flowing on your IG.

    Sounds like it will work, start with a smaller stock of shirts though. You don't want to be stuck with hundreds of bucks in unmovable shirts should it be a flop.

    Sounds like a great idea mate! I started a account in the luxury / fashion niche and went from 0 to 10k in 25 days!

    I got an account in the same niche and I'm currently at 15k followers - took me 32 days to be exact. I did a few shoutouts from my big 95k account and the rest is only manually uploading pictures, follow/unfollow, so.. no bots or tools used!

    It sounds like a good plan.

    As other member said, you can sell more things apart from the t-shirts, however I think that starting with one product to test the monetization strategy is good.

    Focus on learning from the community that you have created and run rests to understand what they would be willing to buy from you!

    Good luck!

    Yep, start small and test everything. Do not start with too many products. Start with one product line and slowly look to build on it.

    But first of all, decided on that first product and stick with it for a period of time.

    They take a lot of % at TeeSpring.
    Building the website as we speak and creating a shop on EBAY.
    Thanks for the advice!

    That is true!
    I will start with T- Shirts and if it goes smoothly in the next couple of months will be able to add more products, as you say maybe even build it into a brand.
