    Hey guys, Just wanted to post a thread and get any tips or maybe connect with people that are successfully earning from instagram.
    I will also keep you all up to date with any methods that work for me, what makes me the most money and the best ways i grow my accounts.

    My Story: I got into instagram around a year ago, made/bought some accounts and was simply building them up but due to work/life situations i really never put as much time into it as i wanted to. A lot of the accounts were just on idle for long periods of time which killed the activity. Currently these are the rough stats of my accounts:



    • Comedy: 70k+ Followers / 2k+ Likes / 100+ Comments
    • Luxury/fitness/travel inspo etc: 50k+ Followers / 200+ Likes / Some Comments (This account had fake followers, not sure how many were fake but the main reason for the bad ratio is that it was changed niche many times. Just started posting again)
    • Vegan targeted fitness/health: 9k+ Followers / 150+ Likes / Some Comments
    • Female Fashion: 24k+ Followers / 200+ Likes / Some Comments
    • Fitness inspo: 4k+ Followers / 50+ Likes / Some Comments
    • Luxury/Wealth Inspo: 8k+ Followers / 120+ Likes / Some Comments
    • **I also have over 30 spam accounts with 100-400 followers each**
    My Experiences: Note: I use Followliker and Igerslike
    • Cpa - I experimented with cpa content locking. I targeted clash of clans hack and iphone giveaway. I didn't make much money with this, in my experience it seemed to be a lot of work/maintenance that isn't really worth the return. But after reading up on threads i feel like I'm wrong and maybe i targeted niches that are flooded or i just needed to scale up more.
    • Shoutouts - I never sold shoutouts
    • E-commerce - I setup a few online stores with drop-shipping suppliers. Best for me was female bags/shoes. But the biggest issue was shipping times and concern of item quality. Hard to discuss any complaints with customer about quality when you didn't actually see the shipped item yourself so it was begining to be more hassle the more sales i made.

    Thread Purpose: I want to focus and put in the effort to get a good side income from instagram. I have more time now and especially the next few weeks i have off so i want to get started and make this happen. So i will first start focusing on the accounts activity and build them up again. Im also really interested in hearing from peoples experiences even if you would just give me your opinion of what you do in my position. for example, focus on cpa, shoutouts etc and reason why. Below i will list the specific questions i have about each method

    Cpa- Im interested to know the amount of accounts needed when trying to maintain steady cpa earnings if you aren't using a main niche focused account. I want to try and setup and automate many accounts under the cpa offer to simply follow/like with followliker. But from past experiences it wasn't even worth the time so any tips/information would be great. Even if you can just say what you are earning to help show me it is possible :)

    Shoutouts - I understand that shoutouts are a main monetising method for instagram. Right now i think my only account possible for this is my comedy one since its activity is not too bad. 70k+ Followers / 2k+ Likes / 100+ Comments. My questions are, other than shoutout sites/fiver etc how do you get shoutouts. I will put info in my bio, but do you simply contact potential customers? what has been the most effective method for getting customers for you? and whats your experience with trying to get shoutouts for a comedy page?

    I understand many people don't share this type of info but i thought it was worth a shot.
    Also if you have an enquires/ideas you think we could work on together then feel free to dm me. I'm open to all suggestions :)

    I look forward to keeping you all up to date on my methods and hopefully we can all benefit from this experience.

    I ever made many instagram accounts. But now instagram is too strict they block all of my accounts. I wonder how some people can create many instagram accounts without getting ban .

    In my opinion you should grow all your accounts a lot before even thinking about monetizing. 200 likes is going to lead you nowhere. Even the comedy one which is 2K likes, it's a niche rather hard to monetize so to get money you have to get really big or offer something different.

    Thank you for the feedback, i agree i feel like comedy pages have to be very active in order to be good for monetising. And the rest of my accounts are very poor activity. Ill be getting shoutouts and even trying mentions on some accounts to help get activity back.

    If you want to earn money without doing a shit do it like all the people here say and grow your accounts until 100000k. If you reach it they'll tell you to grow until 1000000000k. Really I cant take it anymore.
    Of course there will somewhen be the point where you get more mails than you can answer, but thats the lazy ass version of making money.

    If you have time as you said. Sit down and think about ways how to monetize it. I can forsure you I'd be making good cash with that comedy acc... its possible without any doubt. There are allways people that pay too much for shoutouts. But noone of these will come to you and ask for one. You need to think of a way to successfully approach them. If you dont know how... think about it, try, fail and repeat until the fail turns into money.

    I know how hard is to be patient, to wait for that (in)famous number of followers...
    What is more important are likes, but oh well. Anyways, find a way to be patient. Good luck! :)

    It's really not that hard. You just need some time and patience to burn through accounts. Once you get enough data (limits on accounts), you'll know how to make IG accounts on the fly.
