    Hey guys, I wanted to start my Instagram money making log on here for you guys to follow, be motivated, and to encourage me to reach my goal of making $100 a day.

    I currently have one instagram account rightnow (not going to reveal niche till later) with 29k followers and very good engagement. I'm used followliker for several months to build up to this level.

    The Game Plan:

    My plan is to start sending out mass DM's to people asking them if they want a shout out. I will be charging $20 for a 24 hour shout out and $50 for a permanent shout out.

    I just started doing this 2 days ago and made $10 on day 1 and $35 on day 2. I plan on tracking how much I make every day, and then taking the weekly average to see how much I make per day. My ultimate goal is to get to the $100 a day level. Let's go!

    That's amazing, keep us posted.

    You look into selling offers for messages on one of those third party sites to expand your reach and attain multiple shoutout request streams?

    A few shoutouts a day, I feel like you are definitely going to lose some quality followers man. Do you have more than one account?

    Shoutouts are okay but you can certainly make a lot more if you monetize your account with the right offer (cb or cpa).

    Good luck though!

    I tried researching a bit of CPA and signed up with a CPA site. I have friends who I told to fill out the surveys, just to see if they worked, and they were prompted to spend a dollar or so in order to collect points and retrieve the product.

    ------------------------------

    What I've noticed from doing this is that a lot of people do not even see the DM I send them, and from the ones that do, a good amount of them respond with "thanks for the offer, but I'm not willing to pay money for a shout out". So I think it really is just a matter of luck and a numbers game to find the people who want a shout out and willing to pay for one at the desired price. Better luck tomorow.

    Cool concept man, I have a handful of IG accounts with around 30k followers in various niches.

    Confused how you made $10 and $35 if you are only selling shoutouts for $20 and $50 though :p

    Have you tried monetizing them?

    The $10 and $35 are because they were negotiated prices. I sold 2 shout outs the first day for $5 and, on the 2nd day I sold 1 for $20, one for $10, and one for $5

    Hi
    What do you mean by "sign up for third party"?

    There are websites out there that are specifically for shouting out people on Instagram, for example buysellshoutouts. This is good because people who are actively searching to get a shout out will automatically come to you rather than you finding them. But they have like a minimum requirement of followers you need to have in order to become a seller

    Had a VERY successful day today. I sold $70 worth of shout outs today and have people that want to buy it throughout this week :) I really hope that I can keep this thing consistent. Making $100 a day from this would be amazing.

    Earnings today: $70

    Selling shoutouts everyday?? You will lose followers and your engagement will go down. And one more thing never sell a permanent shoutout!!!
