    Hi, so I've noticed everyone posting how instagram ad are imminent. I recently started my own instagram journey and am at about 1000 followers no bots or anything. I myself have seen my account go from 100likes to 50-60. I'm in this for the money, and was planning on selling shootouts in the near future. Now do you guys suggest and keep going or switch to somethings else? Thank you

    You're literally at 10% of the bare minimum(10k followers) to see any results. So it's up to you. Do you wanna give up and move on to something or get to 10k followers,try monetizing and then decide?

    And yes,there's always gonna be money in Instagram.

    With my fashion accounts the engagement drops. with my animal accounts (and one account I made of my friend's dog) the ratio is amazing. I think it depends of MANY things and the solution is to never give up always think why some accounts work and others don't.

    It also depends on your niche and the quality of your photos.

    I'm at 4250 followers. All manual. I'm getting 3-600 likes per post. Averages out to about 9%. My engagement has never been higher. If you put the time in and post good pics...people will follow and engage.

    I agree, Instagram is where the attention is, an accounts success is based 100% on the quality of the person executing.

    There are "Instagram brand's" making seven figures a month, with no other marketing push.
