    Hi guys.
    I know lots of people ask the same question. But I think mine is a little different.
    I absolutely love Instagram. I guess I could say it’s my hobby.

    So far I’ve been featured on «suggested users» list. I got +17k followers in 6 days and I’m still getting around 2-3k new followers per day.

    I know it’s not much but in perspective is there a way to monetize personal account? Not some «tattooed guys» or «hot babes» page.

    Thanks in advance!

    This is a bit tough but this is in my honest opinion if i was in your position. I would build another instagram account that's a hobby of yours. If you like workingout/fitness might as well set up an account and direct your new followers to it. Now with the new followers pouring into your new account set up a site such as a fitness site or sell them a product. There's so many ways you can do this

    clothes! if your photos get enough likes, start emailing clothing pages on instagram with big followings and trying to spark out a deal. all you would have to do is take a pic in their shirt and then post a selfie

    I have a furniture store and just with 1.3k followers making a 12k mounth. I just add my competitors costumers. My i on my limited 7.500, them i findinf a bot to unfolow all.
    You can sell something or offer to advertise for $50 each advertise, you can put bot to auto comment, advertise for $50 and make a lot of for day.
    How you get this amount of followers per day. What bot you use, if want buy a good one, just dont decide yet.

    You setup a capture page, direct a niche to your funnel and if they don't buy right away based on your sales video then you follow up with them with email

    i would suggest contacting companies that follow your niche of photography, often times they will pay you money or gift you their items for promotion. that is by far the cleaniest/classiest way to monitize your instagram account. (i am assuming you care about your brand image here)

    if you do not care about the brand image of your instagram account,
    you can offer shoutouts for people and they can pay you through paypal. i have seen that a lot.

    hope this helps,

    -Abbey

    If you look good then definitely contact small clothing lines and ask them if they can work out a deal so you can get free clothes in exchange for promotion of their product. You can also look into doing youtube if you have a large enough following and generate some side cash. Then create a blog about your daily activities and interesting topics/stories you want to share with you audience.

    What do you usually post on instagram? Why do you get so many followers. Maybe you can share what you do?
