    I have an account with just over 100k followers getting 6k-10k likes on my pictures. I've only really sold 2 shootouts and they were both for a company promoting a project so I charged them $150 US ($180 for me) for each one.

    Someone just asked me to feature their cat (my niche) and was willing to pay. Usually when people ask I just do it for free if I like the picture, so I was obviously not going to charge them $150 for that. Instead I asked for $15 and they agreed but now I feel like that was not the best decision to make.

    If the shoutout I'm selling is just a picture in the niche and not promoting a business or product, how much do you think is reasonable for me to charge?

    I use a shoutout in my niche that has 101K followers and they get about 8-12K likes per photo. He charges $20 per shout and of course the photos have to be good or he will choose the photo to do the shout.
    Yesterday I was looking for S/O in fashion niche and emailed several people, one girl has 900K followers (I'm sure a ton are fake) but she gets 25K likes averaging each photo posted. She chargest $75

    Other people are really greedy and charge like $120 for their '760k' followers but they're only getting like 5k likes per image (obviously a sh*t load of fakes) and she wants to charge $120 which is a complete ripoff and only an idiot would pay that...

    If you can get 50 bucks per shoutout than you are way good . Otherwise 100k is not that much anyways

    wow thank you so much! So I didn't charge too low ok good. I guess the $150 ones I sold still make sense as I'm promoting their product and they make a ton of money off of it. So for product shoutouts $150 is good and for just normal pictures $15-20 is good.

    Sounds good thanks! Maybe I'll try $25 next time. But yea still gonna keep $150 for products.

    You have a 100k account which gets 6k-10k likes, I think 15$ is pretty low, you should maybe up your price a little bit. :)

    Btw, do not deal with befitbabez, he's a scammer and 12 yrs old from Israel.

    True but I feel bad since I usually feature people's pictures for free if they ask and I like it. Maybe I'll just try $25 and stick to $150-175 for product promotion. Also thank you for the warning, I was actually contemplating buying accounts from him but definitely not anymore. :)

    I haven't started selling shouts yet, but this question always crosses my mind. I am currently at 93k followers and I average around 3-3.5k likes per posts. How much do you guys reckon I should charge for product shouts and normal shouts when I reach 100k and start promotions? Thanks!

    $150 per shoutout to those companies? damn you finessed them lmao. nice.

    a 100k getting up to 10k likes is really good. i keep my prices low and i get 8-14k likes per pic and i charge $14 for an hour but you could probably go up to $20 for an hour. (this is only to people in my niche or related)

    to companies and brands that have nothing to do with my account and might piss my followers off, i charge a lot more.

    $10 per 1k average likes per photo

    If you're getting 5000 likes per photo on average $50

    25k likes = $250

    Make sense?
