    Do they usually just naturally start contacting you as your account grows, and then you inform them that you sell shoutouts at x price for y time, or do you put something like "*Selling shoutouts* in your bio? How do you guys do it?

    Put your kik and/or email in your bio and say its for "business inquiries "

    People will contact you.

    ^ that or contact business account with a simple message like: "Hello @username, if you are looking for a promoted post we offer it right now". Or just find websites where you can sell shoutouts.

    Like asap1 suggested,put up something like "Contact us at email.com for Business Enquiries" or "DM for Business Enquiries".
    I've also used a Shoutout site where people buy shouts on your accounts. Here - http://shoutcart.com/

    The fees are a bit high but you'll get a lot of interested parties and there is a minimum amount($20) to withdraw funds to your PayPal.
    Good luck. :)

    You can always make an image post linking to Fiverr (or others) with your username... In all honesty putting it into your bio is a passive way as mentioned above, but you can even grow into shoutout platforms and let that build up too.

    Instagram has many third party sites that enable further monetization with your brand accounts so look into that.

    You should also add some kind of contact in each of your captions if you really want to sell shoutouts.

    Just put a "business only" contact method in your bio, kik is by far the easiest.
