    Hi guys just wondering, is it still worth trying to grow an account to a large following kn the hopes of selling shoutouts. I am currently in the luxury niche with about 4k followers. Looking for advice, is it worth being persistant and trying to grow or should i look for other methods of earning like blogging. My goal is to be making atleast $1k within a year ,via selling shoutouts , do you guys think it's achievable.

    Yeah, on a serious note: If you type "blackhatworld" into Google, the first suggestion is "blackhatworld instagram", and that should tell you something.

    Takes time and effort, but once you have a good network of 500k+ followers or so, should rack in some decent $$$

    its definatlly worth it, but selling shoutouts in the luxury niche? i doubt that you'll make any good money from it. I think there is just too much competition for cheap shoutouts in that niche.

    Try with CPA, earning money with shoutouts and you'll looking for 1000$ in a year - almost impossible.

    I think its worth it. Pretty simple to understand but just takes alot of time to build up. I started my instagram journey here today too.

    shoutsouts are losing popularity, think of something else to sell with instagram.

    If you want steady income dont do shoutouts.
    think of a niche whereby you can sell related products that people will buy.

    Its' well and ALIVE!

    If I were you i wouldn't do any spamming with cpa though.. if your going to do cpa it would be better to build a email list or lists and then have a nice follow up sequence promoting some type of trial offer, or MMO cpa offer. This works very well... aside from that

    - Ecom
    - shoutouts/promo
    - affiliate marketing

    theres really tons of ways and you cna get creative based on your accounts niche, for luxury iv'e seen tons of accounts do promo for businesses trying to promote watches, shoes, luxury phone cases, etc. so making money from shoutouts is definitely a possibility. You should try and build 10-20 accounts in different niches and spread things out and test a few different methods with each account.

    Luxury is a dead niche for people who have no network. I would never recommend someone to get into that niche when they start out.

    Started one today as well though, this niche was not in my portfolio yet. Lot of buddies in my network run luxury as well, so I would benefit from that. Target for end 2017 is at least 300k+.

    Good luck.
