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.
