    Hi guys! :) I've got a fitness account with 42k followers currently. I'm growing super fast honestly (5k+/week) and i was wondering if any of you had any ideas on how i could start to monetize the page? I was thinking about going for shoutouts+having a partnership with some kind of brand and promoting their products. However as of now, I haven't been able to sell 1 shoutout thus far and I've tried to contact a few companies (also tried Rachels monetization method she posted here), but with no success so far. By the way I get around 1500-2500 likes per picture depending on the days and what not. Any ideas would be great! Thanks everyone :)

    i think you should just try promoting cpa offers, most are pretty easy to convert.

    have you tried joining shoutout networks rather than contacting brands yourself, there are a few around, including mine (in the signature)

    Make sure you have your business email in bio for people to contact you for promotions.
    Usually start seeing people interested in shoutouts at 100k+.

    Check for pages in your same niche that aren't too big (like 100-200K) and see who they get paid to sponsor and then email the people who bought promotion.

    Man. My account is only at 8k and that's after I bought 1k followers lol. I'm trying to keep my following numbers low. I'd love to hear any advice you can offer to experience that kind of growth.

    Well personally it took me around 3 months to grow that kind of following. I never used any kind of bots. I typically post 2-3 pictures a day Max with 4-5h intervals between each so people don't get too annoyed. And I follow in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (around 1000-1500 people per day). I usually go on higher accounts in the same niche and follow the people who liked their most recent picture. I don't follow more than 150 per hour. Then for the rest of the week I unfollow 100 people per hour for a maximum of 1.5k people per day. If you do it every day and don't stop you'll see some nice growth, just don't give up, it may take some time.

    My account has 2 weeks and I go another 50 people per hour and got a warning on my screen. I'm afraid of getting my account banned or Blocked. What should I do?

    Go slowly, I mean if you find instagram I'd giving you a warning at 50 per hour try to go at 40 per hour or 35, once it's been a while and you haven't gotten any warnings, increase it slightly every few hours to see if you've got new limits. There's no universal limit that everyone has to follow, everyone seems to have different limits based on the account age and other factors. I've been temporarily banned half a dozen times and my account is still going strong, so don't be afraid to test the limits and if you ever do get banned well It sucks but at least you learned something. Goodluck
