    Hey all !
    Two month ago I wanted to enter the IG world and I started an account in the fitness niche. Now my account has 54.5k followers with an engagement of 1k-3k likes per pics. It also gains an average of 500 followers orgnically every day. For monetizing I really have no idea :confused: . Everything I tested was a failure :(.

    Finally, I know that I'm very far from my goal and it would be very hard to achieve it, but I keep faith :eek:
    I'll try to update everyday !

    PS: Sorry for my english !:p
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 16

    For a 2 month old account, your statistics are very impressive.

    Best of luck on your journey!

    I tested a teespring campaign but i only sold 1 tee. I also tried to open a shopify store but costumers are always canceling there orders when they reach the checkout step , and I don't know why :(

    Best of luck, 1 million followers on 1 account is quite a bit.

    Have you tried to contact companies and brands (on IG) within your niche and sell shoutouts?

    Maybe you could offer an e-book or as Lessar said some programs for your fitness followers.

    You can always drive them to your website and capture emails to use in future...

    Fitness niche seems to be one of the best since its very popular, grows fast and has big monetization potential. Good luck and well done.
