Hello BHW, Firstly I'm sorry for the bad English you are about to witness as it's not my native language, Now Let's come to the point. --- 1- I started my Instagram's account in August 2015 now I have 137k+ followers. 2- When my account was at 70k I was looking to sell it...cause I didn't make any money from it plus I had to pay college fees too..( But I didn't sell it ...THANKS TO GOD!) 3- Many people gave advice of using bots, but I didn't use, cause you can't beat the beauty of original and unique! (hard work do pay off) How I monetized my account and what mistakes I made in past: - I used to read the Instagram journey of people and was like WOW people earning 50$ a day that's quite an enough amount for a students like us. So I also used same methods ( but it didn't work in my case) reason I think that are ...every account is different, and you've got to try new things with new methods ( don't copy past other) take ideas from them but apply your mind and strategies too. - So here what I did I bought my specified niche products from sites like aliexpress and sell it through Spreesy store on Instagram it took time but I started getting orders in weeks now Get 2-3 orders per week ( I know it's very less but it will increase cause at some point I was broke now I have something in my pocket) Now My goal is to get 5 Orders per day... in next 2months It's a slow journey but definitely worth it...now people msg me daily to buy my account with great prices but finally it paid off my hard work in it. - IF YOU GOT SOME TIPS FOR ME PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE IT WITH ME! ANY QUESTIONS JUST SHOOT ( except asking my niche). PS - Sorry for BAD ENGLISH!
