    Hey guys.
    I have an account that just hit 10k followers @mysterykidx, it took me a year to build it up with real followers using Instagress and posting at least 2/4 pictures a day. Each picture hits around 100/200 likes and a few comments.
    I am wondering if I can start making some money from it? any tips you more experienced members could give me? I would really appreciate the help.
    Kind regards
    MKX ;)

    congratulation for the 10k, try now to make s4s to grow faster, try selling products related to your page.
    when you grow more you can sell shoutouts

    just checked your account and youre still about 12 followers away from gaining 10k lol.

    you have a odd niche there so I doubt places like shoutcart are good ways to gain some money from it. you can try selling stuff related or contacting people that sell stuff related to your niche. dont expect to be making alot of cash just yet though

    Interesting content but low engagement.
    Better work on it.

    Try to go with powerlikes and bigger accounts - you also can search on BHW for Telegram groups for powerlikes - I believe if you enter in search : telegram group powerlike you will find something

    Best to grow a further 9 too, having 100k followers for the same effort as 10k seems kind of silly!

    10k in a year is very slow growth... might want to try new methods and ideas outside the box to grow.
    I average grow 3-4k/month on brand new accounts and that's with normal niches, with other nsfw niches can grow 5-10k/month

    With your niche, I feel like your best bet is to contact psychedelic/420 pages/groups on facebook & clothing/420 based twitter accounts and offer them some sort of partnership and see if you can do a JV.

    Alternatively, you can also open up a Amazon shop, and post your shirts & products that are relatable on your IG account.

    You beat me to it! I'm glad I read the whole thread first before replying but OP this is probably your best bet. I'd create a spreadsheet of IG accounts in this niche along with their email addresses if it's in bio and email them one by one with some sort of proposal or way for partnership.

    If these pages are larger than yours, ask and see how much a shout out from them would be but if you go this route, monitor their engagement first on their posts for a week or so to make sure their engagement isn't botted. It's easy to spot spam and generic comments if you do it this way.

    Im going to sell t shirts related to the NICHE of my instagram.
    Will create a website and facebook page as well.
    Made a post asking my followers what they thought of the idea, they loved it!
    Many saying they would buy a t shirt.
    It took a long time to build up the base but it was worth it.
    Maybe this can actually work.
    Thanks for the advice buddy

    Yeah, I just posted a picture or two a day and let Instagress do the rest.
    Now im a lot more active, hitting around 100 followers a day is that a good number?
    A lot more motivated now that I know I can make some money with it.
    Thanks!

    Got a friend who can get me awesome t shirts from Thailand at wholesale price.
    In the next couple of weeks will have the first t shirts to sell.
    Going to only put up 3 designs at a time, keeping it simple at first.
    Creating a website and facebook page aswell.
    10K followers in a year could be 50k, slowly but steady it seems possible to make a living through IG.
    Thanks for the tips!

    Check out Instagress its a platform that comments, likes, follows and unfollows for you.
    All you have to do is set up hashtags etc.
    That is the only program I used.
    Good luck man!

    I got a wholesale friend who can help me out with the t shirts.
    Going to build a website and facebook page.
    The Instagram page is growing by the day and had magical feedback from many of my followers.
    This could work. Now I need to sit down and organize everything.
    Step by step, I just had the idea yesterday, registered on this forum and thought maybe there is a way I can utilize my IG account, and you guys opened my mind to the possibilites.
    Thank you for that ;)

    Over 10k now.
    Yeah, will focus on selling t shirts related to the Niche!
    Something is better than nothing, even if it starts off only selling a few.
    Its all about getting started and patience

    I just let the program running and posted everyday.
    Now I feel more motivated, engaging more with the followers etc.
    Hopefully in a year from now will be at around 50k followers?
