    Just wondering whether I should start one. Apart from shoutouts, I can't think of any other good way to make money from it. Any experienced suggestions?

    Check how the big accounts on the niche are monetising it to get ideas. And every niche can be profitable if you know how to monetise it

    Even i too do not know what exactly is foodporn but if it exists then I suggest you to check more accounts and see how they are getting their followers and from where.

    I checked one (love_food) and all their caption says is: 'Tag your best friends'. There's tons of pics like this and not so many that have shoutouts :/ maybe not the best niche?

    Foodporn are accounts that post pics of food that looks extremely good (the porn of food)

    You could for example start a website related to food where you make reviews or a youtube channel showing how to make good food, etc...
    There are tons of ways to monetise it, just think out of the box

    what do you mean by that? it definitely relates to food :), LleixG already gave the explanation though, just check out the pics posted under the #foodporn hashtag and you'll get an idea

    So, I asked Google "What is FoodPorn" And the response was..

    According To Wikipedia: Food porn is a glamourized spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, blogs cooking shows or other visual media, foods boasting a high fat and calorie content, exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex. Food porn often takes the form of food photography and styling that presents food provocatively, in a similar way to glamour photography or pornographic photography.

    Foodporn is just accounts for food. Get over it. It's just like any of the other "popular" niches. Yes, it's easy to earn from it when you get big but it's pretty saturated. There's over 50 accounts that have at least 100-200K followers in that. @foodpostss is another pretty giant one in that niche.

    Yes. A great way to monetize it is free food gift card offers from CPA networks. I've done this one before with instagram, but you need to be careful with your tags because you can get autobanned if you make it look like you're advertising porn lmao.

    That pic is totally killer. Looks exactly like my favorite food. I think there is money to be made in this niche, or there wouldn't be so many big players. That said ... those guys will be your competition if you are intending to drive traffic from Instagram. You need to develop good strategies. As was suggested - there is a lot to be learned from reverse engineering the existing big wigs. You can see how they monetize ... what kinds of pics they post ... the hashtags they use ... etc... Dig deep and develop a good plan. Then take action, and you could be making decent money.
