    I've seen some threads here and there are people who are selling shoutouts at 15K followers. I already have 26k followers/1,500-2,500 likes on average in a high quality account and decent niche but I haven't had any brands in that niche approach me to buy shoutouts. I wonder what should I do next? Do i need to contact the brands in my niche already or just continue to build my followers? Thanks guys would appreciate your inputs. Or if you could lead me to a viber/kik group that sells shoutouts/accounts, that'd be awesome!

    You can direct message some account asking if they want to buy a shoutout

    I have worked with startups/ brands that use influencer marketing so I can help. What is your niche?

    Simple tips: find brands who sell a product that fits your target audience, reach out to them via email/ contact info in their bio and give them a offer they can't refuse. If 1 promotion is usually $10 offer them 5 for $25-30.

    I hope that if i can help the community through my experience, people will help me with my thread :)

    If the niche he operates in is fashion/ clothing I would estimate $1-3k per month is easily achievable with those numbers (very high interaction rate).

    Hey mate, I wish you success. But I was half joking, because selling is not allowed outside of the marketplace. Anyway, good luck.

    nto allowed to sell here, but you could ask people if they want shoutouts.
    or there are websites but they take part of your commission

    All you have to do is write 'send direct message for a feature' in your bio.
    You will get inboxes everyday. Have a generic message in your notes and copy and paste same answer to any photo submission you thing will be good on your page.

    The note should something like 'due to large number of daily requests a small fee of '?' will guarantee yourself a posting' this will ensure serious contenders will have their work posted to a large audience'

    Out if 10 people
    5 don't answer back
    2 say no thankyou politely
    2 laugh at you and tell you to fuck off so yout block the c#nts
    1 is happy to pay.

    If you have good number of followers which can provide you better engagements then I must say your next step would be MONETIZATION.

    Did you build the account solely for Monetization? If yes, then you can do any of the following:

    1. Contact accounts selling shout-outs, saying that they can connect you (it rarely works since some people are greedy, but NOT every one. Someone will be willing to help you out.

    2. Contain the product/producers themselves and give them reasonable price.

    Goodluck

    - go to accounts in your niche that already sell promos. Monitor the brands that they post, contact the brands by DM or email asking if you can send them your shout-out rates
    - browse hashtags to find suitable clients (for fashion you could check #boutique), DM or email them

    there are 2 tools in this section very useful, look for them.

    With one of it you scrape for hashtag or by a list of followers. With the other you scrape data from that accounts.
    Extract data like: KIK, WeChat, Whatsapp, Email and blast them with messages. Find KIK, WeChat, Whatsapp panels (I don't know if they exist) and send bulk messages, email them using free services for create newsletter (no, I don't care about nothing) I import emails, write few sentences and send them.

    Finger crossed and wait for your reply. Have a nice day man and I wish you good luck!
