    Hey guys, hope everything is going well.

    I was hoping someone could help me make the right decision for my Instagram account.
    My account has 27k+ real followers and the niche is self/personal-development, motivation, inspiration, books, spirituality, philosophy and a little bit of fitness. (The page is growing with ~100 per day)

    First I started selling t-shirts through Spreadshirt and those kind of websites but it just wasn't worth it made like 200$ in a a couple of months. (Nice but I guess not my thing.)

    After this I started a forum focused on personal development and such and it's not really active although it's getting 750+ page views a day. (I'm probably keeping it and going to get vBulletin so it might get more popular.)

    I came up with the idea to do some affiliate marketing with a site like Amazon and I could promote/recommend books I like.

    I guess my question is. Would it be worth it? Promoting books through Amazon?
    I don't want to spam my followers with something that isn't going to work you know.

    Hoping anyone has some advice and maybe other ideas.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    27K is not much if you want to convert it. Try, try and try. Keep growing it, and eventually, sell your own products that you made out of your niche interest.

    So you say skip the small money-making and go for 100k followers and try to make big business.

    You should grow your followers more to get something to truly convert.

    What about starting "Book Of The Week" club? or something?

    each week you read a book, and then you write a review about it and promote it via amazon link?

    Or you can just look at the reviews people wrote, and re-write it and voila!

    27k isn't that much when it comes to inspirational/motivation niche. A lot of it is garbage traffic IMO which is why you would need 100k-500k followers to make money.
