    I was just wondering if there are people here who actually gain a good deal of money by monetizing instagram. I was making about 20-30 bucks daily about two years a go, but I never reached my goals of making 100 bucks a day. And then instagram got stricter on massliking/following etc. so I quit cause the bots I used back then were no longer as powerful as they used to be. But Recently I was thinking of starting the instagram business again, then I looked at a few journeys just for a little inspiration and noticed that basically everyone who started a journey on instagram here abandoned it again quickly before reaching their goal and the ones who were able to gather lots of followers were not really that successfull moneywise. So I am just curious if starting to monetize instagram is still worth it these days, and if there is indeed anyone here who still makes really good cash with instagram (let's just say more than 100$ a day) or knows that it's possible?

    Sure it's still doable to get a lot of cash on IG but you need to either have a well thought account in a specific niche or a big account in a big niche to get cash.
    Anyway IG is still a gold mine if you know how to exploit it.

    Yes there are people making good money from IG, you would be to! But you quit
    when you should have never given up. Quitting should never be an option.

    yeah thanks for the catchphrase life lesson. clichéd motivational platitudes are always helpful... I did not necessarily quit because instead of IG I am using pinterest these days and for me the traffic there is so much better than what I ever got on instagram. Also with the new limits botting has become really tedious on instagram in contrast to how rapid it used to be. And judging by the IG journeys here, basically everyone, and even the most motivated and organized people quit at some point. So I assume while there is high potential, it must be very hard to get started on IG these days (Except when you already have an older viral account or buy a big one in a good niche). But thanks for answering anyway! I just wanted to get some insight beforehand, because I was about to buy a very expensive IG bot I saw, and I am not a friend of making rash investment decisions.

    Well if what you're doing with Pinterest works for you, just scale it up ! Use what works for you. ;)

    Interesting, you say the same thing in all your posts. If you're going to sell something you should do a better job at it. I mean you are in a marketing forum so..... if you want me to teach you how to make $50k a month, then skype me. In case you're wondering if it took awhile to build up that income then my answer is no. I made $1k my first week of doing it.

    Images are excellent forms of marketing as they draw in users to webpages. If you attract users correctly with the images of whatever you are trying to promote(doing an action, inspiring yearning for something, selling a product, selling images) then I would say IG makes it pretty easy to reach the younger audience in a setting where they are comfortable && ready to be influenced. Allot of it is creativity and confidence.

    Could I ask what your skype is(I know I'm not forrest8 but am interested in what you said)

    Hey man, I was being sarcastic.

    Anyone who posts these type of messages on bhw should always be avoided. Especially if it's coming from a new member.
