    Hello

    I have decided to build Instagram empire and earn some $$$ with shoutouts. The account is pretty new with 1.5k followers at the moment, and I'm getting daily 150+ new followers. Instagram is health niche related. I'm using free roboinsta google chrome addon bot.

    So i have some questions for you guys... How you calculate how much is shoutout worth based on followers and when is the proper time to start selling shoutouts and where?

    I'm planning to build at least 50k followers before I start giving shoutouts. What do you think?

    Thank you for you answers.

    Followers STATS 28.2.2017--->1494

    First, congrats on starting out.

    Second, what to charge for shouts? Depends.

    Depends on the type of followers you have. What's your niche? Travel, luxury, cars/whips, watches, menswear, womenswear, memes, pets, babes, etc?
    We've noticed that Memes, babes, watches, luxury, cars/whips followers are cheap mofos, or teenagers with a closed door and a nighttable drawer full of vaseline and toilet paper.

    Now, the rest of the niches are a catch-22. If you create your own content, some will buy or want to buy what you use and/or wear. If you just copy paste viral stuff, you won't get much other than a few clicking on a link. So, no real money unless you have 100K+ real followers.

    So, until then, if someone is willing to pay you, even if it's $10; take it.

    Now, when you get to 50K+, hey, you and I both know your engagement will not generate any valuable traffic to anyone paying for a shout. So, again, take what you can.

    Are you only using roboinsta to grow your account? I'm new as well and my growth is only around 80 a day. But I am more conservative with follows (450 a day). Would be interested in knowing how you grow your new account, and how your method differs from mine.

    Try to engage with real users instead of getting followers from roboinsta. Real followers will create real values.

    I know someone with only 65k followers that making arround $30 USD a day. It depends on your niche. People won't buy shout outs if their niche is soccer. And your niche models.

    Try to make 1 more account, 2 niches. grow both to 50k+ And you will make solid money. Try to find people that doing the same as you do. So you guys can shout out each other for free. Upload like 2-3 times a day. with nice time amount between the posts.


    Wish you luck

    Under 5% engagement is low. Find out why.

    Check to make sure you aint getting followed by bots and fake users. Remember when you sell shoutouts, your clients want a return on their money. If they see that your page aint generating no dollar bills for them, they arent coming back. The numbers dont lie.
