    Hello guys,
    I would really like to get some help from you. I have instagram in quotes/motivational nitche and i have 46k followers, get 1300/1400/1500 likes per post & i post daily. Account is 1year and 2 months old. I was trying to make some money with adsenes & instagram but couldn't pass 2$ per day. So i thought i should try doing shoutouts. Usualy i do 3-4 shoutouts, but that is nothing i guess. Now what is my question, how should I find people to do shoutouts for them? (bad English, but i guess you got point :D ) I tried to post it on ebay, but ebay removed my offer 2 days later. Any suggestions? I saw lot of smart people here, guess you can help me with my problem. Thank you!

    1.Selling quality shout outs through Fiverr and SEOclerks.
    2. Create a site relating to to your niche and use adsense and earn

    I feel like most people that would want shout outs in that category would be writers? Unless I'm misunderstanding and you just have motivational posts in general. You could create a gig on fiverr and have special packages that people could buy for more to upgrade...such as keep the photo up for longer, post more than 1 photo for them yada yada.

    Grow it more. My advice is don't try to monetize it yet. Monetizing too early sometimes results in lower engagement if you fail and do it with spammy methods. The easiest thing to do is put an email in your bio and say it's for business only. When you grow large, you won't need to do anything but check your email. People will eventually send you offers. You want to be in a position of control. You want to be so large that you not only care for offers, but you want the best offers you can get. You need to bargain for the best prices. I'm guessing for that niche, since there's a couple over 1M in that.. a good position to be in is at least 100K+. A very good number would be 250K+. At that point, you can make your own site AND do shoutouts once every 2 days probably for at least $10-15 if not much more, AND maybe sell quote related merch. Make more accounts in the same niche and when you hit 6 figures in followers, shout them out and let them grow to at least 50K as well. Do not focus on the money for now. In the long-term, there will be a point in time where people will come up to you and they'll be willing to pay insane amounts of cash for you to help them grow their page/business/etc. If you would grow the page 10x, 460K with at least 2% engagement could be worth even 5 figures.

    You really do provide some of the best insights! I read your journey and you posted saying you were going to stop visiting soon, please don't! The instagram section needs you.

    On a srs note, a quick question, when you set up support accounts, do you just link to your main account in the bio and each post? Also do you post the same pics each time or different?

    Thanks

    try fiverr, forums, make sure any visitor can contact you though your description on ig. Also those $2 per day might be cause of the site not because of the traffic, how much traffic do you get? maybe you can work on the site and increase your earnings. Keep growing the account at the same time , that will increase the amount gained as well.
