    So today I made an IG account labeled royalkushpics, and I intend to grow this page big enough to sell shoutouts from companies and things like that, as well as cpa if at all possible (don't really know the numbers for that)

    But anyways, would it also be a good idea to make a blog and just post the same content on it and run AdSense? I don't think there's any money to be made on youtube with weed pictures so that's the only other way I can think of it.

    What do you guys think?

    Update: After one day's work I'm at 108 followers, all real and I've gotten a couple of shoutouts. Going well so far.

    Well I figured I'd update my progress since no one replied hahaha, I'm at 120 and I recently purchased 1,000 for pretty cheap. This should give my page "1.1k", making it look more official hopefully and the follows will pour in! Not really sure where to make my money from there though, kinda just having fun interacting right now.

    Good work mate. I'm not into ig but I think you'll still need quite a bit more followers before any real money can be made. What are you doin for followers besides paying for them?

    I've been using my 3 days of instapress wisely, liking a bunch of peoples pics and I'm also offering free shoutouts for now, in return for a shoutout back! This has helped me be seen to way more followers as accounts with 3k have shouted me out before, gotta start somewhere!

    Hahaha damn, nice! I've gotten 50 already this morning and that feels like a win, until I realize how much further I have to go on this journey. I like it so far though!

    You can do Adsense however they're not available in all the countries. Only in countries that legalized weed. Or you can always sell with Teespring and design weed,bob marley,kush etc theme clothes.

    That's not a bad idea, I was also thinking about making a community almost of lower follower accounts that want to be a part of something to "help them get recognized" and create like a "#RoyalKushFam" where people basically submit to me and give me free content. I think it could help grow the page a lot.

    At the close of our second day, We gained (+180) for the day, up from (+100) we did on our first day, almost doubled the growth rate! Should be breaking 300 by noon.

    Nice work, just keep at it. If you continue at this rate and the gain is exponential, then you're definitely on the right track.

    Be careful buying followers, im not sure if IG are banning but they did start to remove fake followers from accounts recently, i cant find the thread now but some people lost like 80% of their followers. Waste of money.

    Update: Took a couple days off basically, only posting 2 pictures, and still gained 200 followers, I'm at about 525 right now and expanding everyday. When should I start to try to monetize?

    Good luck bro! Started my IG journey yesterday as well in the luxury niche. How do you setup the shoutouts with other accounts? Does it get you more followers than with follow/unfollow?

    Up to 1550 followers now, I normally just comment on their pics and ask to feature them on my page. Monetization should begin soon.
