    Although, my question for everyone is, how much are Instagram accounts worth??

    I want to discuss the monetary value of an Instagram account based on niche, number of followers, engagement, and overall brandability of an account.

    Also, generally how much do you guys get when you sell an account (like per thousand of followers) any recent sales? Post them here. Obviously every situation is different, but I just thought it would be nice to get a general idea of the market as of today.

    You can't value an account based on a couple of numbers. In the business world you would call this goodwill. For me personally I would never sell any of my accounts unless they stop leading to sales/shoutouts. You could sell them for an amount that is equal to your sales of the next X months.

    Some like to value accounts, roughly $0.01 per follower, given that it's active and real followers.
    And you have average - good engagement.

    Now if your account makes 20k account makes $200/month it wouldn't make sense to sell it for $200..
    That would be a different story and that account would be worth $1k+
