    Many methods I have been seeing recently are about using OGAds links in instagram bio for money, well I'm here to tell you why that is not a good idea.

    Instagram ads are dying horribly, when I owned a 150k instagram I was only making a couple bucks from ads in bio, and it's because almost everyone does this method.

    Spending $750 on an account to make $7 is the definition of pointless, hell, it would be easier to do some cash for apps bullshit and you'd profit more.

    Some instagram bots still work for ads but my experience with them is horrible, I had an average 4% conversion rate with all my links.

    Now if you have a method you'd like to try on instagram go right ahead! I'm not trying to stop you.

    I'm just advising you, don't invest all your money into instagram. ​

    Maybe it depends on your niche? i have no idea but i think you need to do more and more even deep and deep research before jumping into business venture.

    I tried OGads IG journey but i think would be better to try other method like what you said a lot of members doing it already.

    you joined today and i have to believe you ? or i have to believe in my earnings from IG
    if you failed in earning from ig+ogads it does not mean that it is not worth ))
    you just have to change your strategy
    and IG+OGADS is definitely worth trying!

    there is no other strategy its just different nitches yes i have tried and ofc i made some money but for the time you invest in my opinion its not worth the money.. making account ban remake account look for different nitches. i tried other money making methods and they work much better after investing the time i did with instgram

    I saw many people banking good money with that method. I just tried it out and got ban on 2 accounts as soon as I place a link in my bio. Not every method works for everyone. Just because you lost money, doesn't mean others are losing as well.

    Hmmm, when I see accounts that try to use CPA it's normally a simple insta-unfollow, I don't know why or who would stay followed to these types of accounts..
    I don't wanna try it as I'm busy with other stuff anyway, making bank with other methods :D

    what ? )) yes there are lots of different strategies and you have to test them to find out with works with your niche. for example - mentioning, dm-ing, simply following, commenting and etc. and yes, you also have to find niche which works for you

    you mentioned that it's not worth investing your time, but why not ? investing 3/4 hours a day in this method is not worth ? i invest 3 hours in this method and 4+ hours in pinterest+adsense method. both works now, but i failed over and over again for few months but after that i figured out what worked for me and now this time is worth investing in this ))

    Bro i'm not saying it don't work i made 100+ with it but its just a waste of time finding the right nitch strategies and so on. If you tried another method with that time you would already be banking js and you would get more money out of it.

    This basic supply and demand factor. OGads payment rates to publisher are dropping. Look at their CPI rates for those who are currently using them. When the network is new, they tend to pay more to attract publisher. Now that they have more publishers, there is no need to pay such high rates as supply out stripe demand and the network focuses more on pleasing advertiser by offering lower ad cost.

    On instagram, the climate has changed dramatically due to heavy abuses and spamming. The one that make good money now are the proxy seller, account seller, bot seller (Followliker, Massplanner,etc). The method used have to be modified as you can no longer just through link on your bio and expect conversion.Try to take a look at how coca cola promote their instagram account and pick up a few tricks from there.

    You suck at it. Don't ask others to stop doing it just because you didn't make any dough.
