    Hello community,

    I am starting a new Instagram account to sell t-shirts. I want a large following but I'm not quite sure what is the best way to do this. I read in a lot of places that you don't want to always post your product, you want a lot of viral stuff and then slip your product in there. That may work if I was only selling cat shirts but I sell anything and everything, from pro trump to anti trump to vulgar to cute kid tees. I'm all over the map because I already sell a little bit of everything. Social media is the next logical step to expand my business.

    What would you do?

    a) Make one account and just post t-shirts on models and whatnot. All kinds of designs and just use different hashtags relevant to each post

    b) Make one account and post all kinds of random viral stuff and slip random shirts. (this seems odd to me)

    c) Make 15 different accounts, one for each subject and post viral content on each and slip my shirts in between. Each account would point to my site anyway.

    d) Something else that I haven't thought about.

    I feel like multiple accounts seems like a good idea but the time I'd need to spend managing it all seems crazy.

    Thank you.

    If you're legitimately running a t-shirt business with a filled schedule, I'd recommend hiring someone to do this for you. In general, you'd want to run a cats page to sell a cat tee. However, there is tons of learning for you to do before you even start a page. Doesn't seem like you were researching in the right place either.

    C. The most hard, but the only one I see working. What you have is like a whole mall. With different stores, but everything in one website, you can make an IG for the mall, but the logical way is to go for one IG/store.

    You can work on multiple accounts that would direct to your main website. This will eat your time, really, so you would need to hire someone to help you out. You need time and energy in more important things than monitoring all 15 IGs.

    I would do 1 main account who represents your "brand" with a good name, and then I would make 2-3 "viral accounts" in the t-shirt niche. All automated with Jarvee and you are good to go!

    I would make an account by theme, it seems to me the best depending on the outside look that will carry the followers.
