    I have a Instagram page based on Japanese cars with 8,000 followers and I average 400 likes per post, I was contacted by someone that wanted me to advertise their product for them and they asked "What is your term for posting, how long will it be on the page, how many posts do we get"
    I have no idea what my advertising is worth so can someone help me out here?

    8k followers isn't that much and you are kinda lucky someone actually contacted you for a business offer..I would probably say 5$ for 24h given you only have that much followers..I might be wrong though !

    $10 for each 1000 likes you average. For a 24-hour post that is.

    I own a JDM car page as well (Japanese cars) I have 120,000+ real followers and i charge $10 a post for 24 hours, most other guys in my follower range charge the same or even $8, i'm surprised someone is hitting you up to advertise on an 8K page, i'd charge like $.50-$1 to be brutally honest but in the begging just say you charge $10 and see what they say, just try to milk them out of whatever you can, remember, you're in control, they want their product on YOUR page

    Why not discuss price together and come to one that makes it fair or both you and buyer, don't totally rip him off, then he will never come back.
    Try to get a reasonable price so if it works good, he will be a returning customer, also discuss multiple posts, instead of just one post.

    The quality of engagement and conversion of sale for your visitors will determine the pricing you can ask. How likely are they going to buy something from an advertiser that posts? We don't want to pay for stupid likes and comments, we (advertisers) like to pay for hard cash opportunities. If I had that niche covered my clients wouldn't offer you anything more than $1 unless your traffic converted into sales. Good luck finding the uniformed people that are willing to drop you money on your account.

    I think you can charge anywhere from $10-20 per post. I would recommend to follow people on Instagram that would be interested in advertising with you. Eventually they will figure you out and contact you.

    I think I will charge $5 for 24 hours and if he becomes a returning customer I will leave it at that price until I reach around 20k followers
