    I have 2 ig accounts both with 700+ followers. It's not enough to sell shoutouts. How can I monetize them?

    I would do something like, donate to animal foundation or something like that.
    Then in bio put something like: Click here and help needed dogs > adf ly link
    Or maybe, promote affiliate product for dogs/cats.

    Just google affiliate program for dogs/cats and do some little research.
    Thanks.

    700 followers? You have to crawl before you walk. Trying to make money off of your followers when you have no real influence is a big turn off for your followers. Start monetizing at 5k!

    Easiest way for pet accounts to monetize is to sell shoutouts for personal pet pages. I have been selling shoutouts on a growing "dog account" for a little while and its provided enough to cover a few operational costs.

    If you have under 1000 followers your best bet is to just drop ship products. If can create convincing enough posts & content you may get lucky and get a few sales. But at this point your main focus should be on growing your account and increasing engagement.

    contact the owners of cat and dog webpages, there is lots of amazon affiliates with sites that would pay for regular shoutouts.

    What are you usually posting? Do you have enough material to grow this to a few thousand followers? If so I'd work on that instead of monetizing now.
