    Hi there, i would like to get some advices for the next questions:

    Lets say i have 1 million total followers in instagram - there are 10 accounts in different niches from traveling to hot girls. Each account has about 100k followers

    Question 1: How much can i earn daily/weekly/monthly ? Of course i know that it depend on activity, niche and etc, but by the way - what is real minimum profit ?

    Question 2: What is the best way to monetize it - shootout/CPA marketing or collaboration with brands or something else ?


    Thanks for reading :)

    You can make anywhere from 0 up to 10 000$, no one can tell you exactly, it's based on your followers engagement, followers country, sex, account quality, account age...

    Monetization is also different for different niches.

    Of course, but he's not asking for *certain income*. He wants to get a general idea from what other people experienced. I'm so sick of these smart ass posts.

    Asking a hypothetical question to a hypothetical situation? There are sooo many variables to account for, these are the hardest questions to ask and literally any answer can be considered correct.

    There is no exact amount. Depends to whom so sell a shout out too. And last time I used insta I was able to add links above my picture ? Cuz if it's so then that's a lot of moneys over there ;)

    The reason of creating this thread is to get some info/advices from people who already monetize its instagram traffic and understand what is the average income i can get with certain conditions - in this example 1kk followers) Thats all

    Im pretty sure no one can say the exact amount, thats why I'm asking for average.
    Lets say 100$ 1000$ or 10k$ i guess you understand.
    Because average amount from 0 to infinity doesn't make me more knowing

    What you are asking doesn't really have an answer without more (and VERY specific) information. The best thing you can do is go read, about all the journeys out there, the methods and come up with your guesstimation of which niche is best for you and what the average is. I know a couple friends that got me into it and thought they were killin it with 150k followers selling $300-400 a month in shoutouts and such. Then I get on these boards and read, and have seen people with less followers making more money via different methods.

    There is no average and things change all the time, what we tell you now can literally be turned upside down within the next 30 to 60 days. You just have to get out there and test it bud.

    Well, i can only tell you how much i made with 100-150k new followers every day and that was around $250-$300 per day, i think the highest i earned was around $400/day. These were untargeted, but active accs, the most recent followers of the top 100 accs.
    Monetization: CPA, more precisely iPhone 5 email submit.
    The total number of followers wasn't really interesting for me, for what i was doing the really interesting measure was the new followers i was getting and the new people who came into contact with my content, because not everyone becomes a follower of yours, who sees, interacts with your content.
    The way i operated got my accs banned pretty fast, but i didn't care, i just used 50 new, blank accs every day. I was doing this for a few months. If you're curious of my total number of followers, when i stopped doing it, that was around 1,5 million spreading among 700, maybe 800 accs.

    I could have done better, maybe, maybe not. Your case is different though, you have authority accs, i'm not sure about your daily follower growth and how active your accs are and a lot depends on your monetization, so i guess you can't really draw conclusions from my example. If the accs weren't monetized until now and the followers are active, you can expect a nice sum at first for sure, which may tank after some time especially without follower growth, particularly if you're selling/promoting something what people only buy/fill out once.

    If i would own authority accs, it's sure as hell, that i wouldn't spam them with SOs, i wouldn't do CPA either, i would try to find actually useful, problem-solving niche-specific products/services and sell that to them without actually selling it. Maybe try non-shitty affiliate products with revenue sharing, so instead of the quick profit, you will have a life time money maker.

    Great thank for so large and detailed answer.

    I guess i should say that my question was about niches accs - not spamming which makes ton of mentions, comments DM or something else. Spamming makes a good profit but frequency of bunning makes me crazy and thats why i moved to niches accounts.

    Of course i do not want to "kill" my accounts using shitty CPA products - i already have some experience at another social network where i destroyed my traffic using products like that and as result got absolutely non active auditory.

    Once again thanks for sharing :)

    This is interesting. Why you gave up?
    Did you used cheap proxies? I guess 2usd proxies would cut your profits big time with 700-800 accs. Did you used any specific bot?

    This wasn't yesterday, but 3 years ago.

    Proxy cost wasn't too big, i haven't used cheap proxies, but i didn't need too many either. I only used 200 accs at any given time, 5 per proxy, when a proxy got blacklisted, i just replaced it, that 700-800 accs was the total amount of accs when i quit, which survived. The magic trick was mass following with instadominate, there was a loophole in ig, so in a matter of a minute or two you were able to follow the max limit of 7.5k, sometimes it was that fast, that ig couldn't limit you at 7.5k, but you went over 8k lol. So i was following 375k new users every day. Accs died fast, needless to say, but i wasn't in for the long run with them. I just used a new batch of 50 accs every day.

    Proxy cost was around $60 per month, i got xgram for free, which had an account creator (there was no need for PVAs or even email verify back then), instadominate was ~$50 (one time fee), i used free domains and blogger, no other costs, so the ROI was pretty good, we can say that i think.

    Btw using blogger not only was a wise choice financially, but it was convenient as hell. When ig banned an acc, most of the time the blogger blog was banned too, i have 200 of them, so when one got banned, there was no need to redo everything from scratch, the only thing which was needed is to rename the blog and it was good for ig again. You can build pretty nice and simple landing pages on blogger by editing the html, you can modify it to the point, when you won't be able to recognize, that it's actually a blogger blog. You can do georedirects too.

    Why did i quit? Mainly because xgram, then instadominate went down and partly because i got tired of it. It involved a bit of manual work, it was repetitive and i wasn't really good at automating things back then, now i could do practically all of those tasks with imacros. Also spring came and i said fuck it, i worked enough throughout winter and i just quit. :)

    That's quite a nice story, maybe a smart move was if you tried to make a few autority accounts along with your method.

    Also, the money you were making should been enough to enabled you to hire some guys to set up a few custom scripts so you can make some automation. freelancer dot com was ok for this kind of stuff.

    Yes, i could have done that. I was in touch with the dev of instadominate and i was thinking about hiring him to make a new bot from scratch, but i just didn't.
    Another thing i forgot above, that the CPA network (AdvertMarketing) i worked closely with was shut down by the FTC, because of SMS spam scandal (i wasn't involved in that one lol). The company was ordered to pay $4.2 million in fine, however i think the judgement was suspended and i'm not sure, if they needed to pay it after all. My aff manager/the owner needed to pay $15k, another guy too.

    Good ol' days, when the popular page of ig was flooded with gibberish comment spam. :D
