    Hello, I need some ideas or maybe some hands on help monetizing this sucker, it is in the auto/car niche. Id consider even changing the niche if it meant to be more lucrative.

    Ive attempted to monetize via a shopify store, had a lazy business partner didnt work well, would try again, but would need to actual help me and not be lazy,

    Id love to be able to sell shoutouts, I was taking to the owner of a instagram account that had like 3.5 mill followers and he said he was charging $150 a shoutouts an hour, he said he does about 12 hours worth of shoutouts in a day, he is considering raising his prices also since the demand is so high.

    He also has a website in his bio and makes a ton with adsense on his site and is promoting his youtube channel also.

    SO basically one source of traffic turned into a bunch of income steams,

    My account is relatively small at just 40k

    I have all real followers but the engagement is bad, I keep going on and off with the posting, at one time i was getting 700 likes a pic around the 12k followers mark, took time off which was a big mistake and i lost a tons of engagement, posted for about 2 months straigh again before taking a break,

    Well i accumulated about 40k followers and i get about 300 likes a pics currently, i jsut started posting again,

    Id be open minded in selling the account also, but not for free, it would have to be for $400-$500 atleast.

    I can get my account to grow anywhere from 500-1500 followers a day using my bot and my settings, So growing isnt the problem it is simply monetizing,

    I havent tried cpa, i just dont know much about it i heard great things about ogimobi but ahvent tried it, I dont know how it works really and i dont really want to spam my account but i dont really care at this point as long as im making some money with it,

    I started another account in the luxury niche, i grew it to about 4k followers in a few weeks, using lenient settings on my bot, I was getting 100 likes a pic now its down to about 30-40 as i took time off which killed engagement also.


    I just need some extra money, id be open minded to helping someone grow their instagram account with my bot also, i made some ads on craigslist but never got a response. If you are stuck and having trouble growing your account, I ccan get you atleatst 500 followers a day.



    Please help me, if you have anything to offer plase PM me lets see if we can make something happen.

    Hey! I'm interested to see where this goes. I also have an Instagram account in the automotive niche. I actually decided to finally make an account here on bhw just so I could follow this thread. I've been looking at ways to monetize my account in the future, although it's not quite as big as yours yet. Any info would be great. Thanks!

    I realize. Haha what I meant was that I'm interested to see what ideas others may have for monetizing an Instagram account besides selling shootouts.

    there are countless such threads man...i myself have some instagram accounts but one simply can not monetize it when it's not big enough. today one of my account touched 100k and i haven't made a penny from it yet. I am only getting DMs from chicks who just want a free shout out :D

    If you don't have CPA offers in reserve to keep up with demand and are in relevancy towards general auto niches there is always a way to sell part repairs or even accessories from Amazon, CJ, eBay (Affiliate Account) or Amazon's vehicle sales subsidiary.

    It might take a bit of volume, but coupon codes always have easier ways to be used to generate a sale.

    In all means don't avoid CPA, but simply mix affiliate networks, CPA, direct shoutout sales as well as other means to diversify and get a better understanding in the future of Instagram.

    Keep growing and sell shoutouts. Low engagement hurts however
