    I'm currently growing only one account but I plan on starting a few more. But I must first choose the niches for them.

    So there are some niches I'm interested in but they aren't very big. For example, I thought of creating an account of a specific movie which is very popular and there are many big accounts in the niche (none over 500k tho) but it's nothing compared to the size of fun/food/etc.

    Now what I wanna know is: Do "generic" niches get more shoutout requests than specific niches?

    I plan on profitting only with shoutouts since I read a lot of people are getting banned when using CPA.

    Generic Niches will probably get more shoutouts due to them being more popular of course, but then you also need to take in to account the amount of competition you'll already be facing with some people having much more experience than you. It's a LOT (I mean, a LOT) more work, but yes, the top generic niches get many more shoutout requests than specific niches. It's all about building credibility and beating the competition which is of course easier if there are fewer people as compared to the over populated general niches.
    Hope this helps.

    Generic ones actually aren't very effective for promoting anything in the tangible realm (physical goods).. They're better for driving massive amounts of traffic (younger demo) through things like clickbait and CPA.

    If you're going to be within an interests niche like cars, fitness or fashion, those are the ones which will have more actual brands related to those niches that will find value in your shoutouts.

    Hope this helps

    shoutout works if you have good CPA offer. as just random test will not give you good ROI.
