    Hello everybody, I'm new here and i've passed like almost each thread in the first couple of pages. one of the most interesting things I've seen lately :)
    so I am familiar with instagram, but not a regular user.

    I would really appreciate if you can help me to get things right, here is the situation: I'm an office worker, and I'm also a student - so I don't got time for other jobs.

    I know passive income won't make me rich, but I think it's better than nothing because I would really appreciate any support now.

    There are 2 paths I considered :
    1) to set up a shop in instagram (as an agent, sell products which aren't mine).
    2) to gain follows and activity from users.

    I'm sorry if I'm asking rude questions:

    1) you know what's the average income from each path? and how much time he spends on it? (and the stats of that income? [like followers, likes, and such?])
    because if it's not so passive maybe I can't afford spending time on it.​

    2) If I'm looking for a great passive income what should I choose between the two? I've read that being product agent doesn't take so much time.
    but I'm wondering if it's worth my time. maybe the other path is much more worth it money/time wise.

    2) About the follows gaining and activity from users -
    What is there to sell? I've read about shouts, CPI (Still can't imagine someone install software from instagram page) , but what more?
    and as I asked above how much money I can make from each? can you guys put some details about the average income from it and what are the way of making money from a strong active page?

    3) As a guy who barely used instagram, can you guide me about the baby steps?
    like what tools you recommend (like the ones with the lower probability of getting me banned.),
    what to do, what NOT to do.

    Any help would be much appreciated !
    Have a nice week :)

    If you don't have time for IG, don't get into it. If you really want to earn something from IG you'll have to invest either quite some money (by buying for instance an account with a great amount of followers) or create an authority account yourself, which takes quite some time and effort, especially content wise and engagement wise.

    There are definitely other ways for making some quick money on the Internet.

    To earn something off of Instagram, you have to invest time, especially in the beginning. Once you get things sorted you can have many things running on autopilot, but especially the start ain't that easy.

    Hey, thank you for your reply !
    I've figured it won't be easy, especially in the start, I've thought to get into this with a friend that has more free time.

    If you are experienced, can you please quote the first post and answer my questions?
    Thanks !

    BTW: which other ways to make money ? haha

    It is impossible to know how much method x y or z will earn you. This has everything to do with the quality of your profile, the engagement of your profile, and last but not least the amount of work you are willing to put in, and how creative you are in finding methods to monetize.

    This isn't the answer you wanted, but you're asking impossible questions to answer.

    I advise you to find a niche, grow your page, and stick with it. While growing, find ways to monetize your page.

    Please remember IG is not a fast way to riches, but in my honest opinion it is one of the most 'easiest' way to make money online. It just takes a lot of time, dedication, and some creativity. Compared to other ways of online marketing, such as SEO, it is way easier. But all online methods take a LOT of time, especially if you're not an experienced and rich old schooler like some.

    Thank you !:thumb:
    Sorry, didn't know it was impossible question, but still would be happy to hear examples haha just so I would get the big picture.

    I think I will stick with it, not because of the money, I find it so interesting so I think the dedication will come easily.

    I found so many instagram bots in my research, any experienced user would like to put out his tips for the newbi?
    tools, what settings the use, what to be carful of, what should I do... well you know the rest :p

    Thanks again !

    90% of people are not doing this to get rich, they are doing it to have a nice and passive income

    why dont u start with the manual method of growing followers in a particular niche and from there you can monetize your selling whatever products u chose to resell, since you would be dealing with just a few accounts... its takes dedication and patience to achieve that...
    there are different monetization techniques on IG, that determines how much u earn on average...
    Good luck OP

    don, just out of curiosity - could you just name a few of these monetisation options?
    I´m in the process of growing my just-for-the-fun-of-it account and thought about putting shoutouts up on fiverr. beneath spamming it with offers (don´t want to attract heat) and selling follow/likes - what else is there?
