Hi, I am starting my instagram journey today. The plan is to get a decent following and then promote accounts via shoutouts for money to hopefully lead to £100 a day. Will try other methods of monetisation but for now stick with that. I have been in IM since I've been a member when I joined which is 2 years. I made £43 yesterday due to an eBay method I found posting cheap software keys and charging a highly inflated rate, but this wasnt for me as I can't track progress and growth isn't consistent. Althougy that was the ONLY money I've made in two years. I've bought domains, created social media accounts but have never taken action as I dont know how. So I'm deciding to get an instagram following and monetise shoutouts hopefully doing a few a day to get up to that mark. Stats so far: Following 1000 (temp block for following a lot, wears off in an hour) As of now, 127 followers. So just over a 10% conversion so far. I may have to start my own shoutout account to promote as I dont have the capital to buy them. Please stay with me for the journey and watch as a noob learns the ways of IM on his first effort. Any advice and appreciation is greatly appreciated and I am happy to answer any questions. My reason for this journey: I am a student in the united kingdom, I go to quite a low ranking university with very high costs of £9k a year plus accommodation and food costs which totals at around £18k per year. I will be in debt by the time I leave university, but hopefully I can make enough money online and continue to monetise online to make a career for myself to then not have to work to pay off debts. Target 1: 1000 followers by 24th July 2016. Update: Within 20 minutes I have gained another 32 followers. It's definitely coming fast and Im now sitting at 159 after two hours work. Should I definitely monetise with shoutouts or do you think something else?
