    Hi there guys.
    I own a small Instagram account in the Fitness/Girls/Luxury niche with over 10 000 followers (growing every day, it's two months old). Yesterday, I tried to add the account to shoutcart and received a message that due to high volume the website doesn't accept accounts in Fitness/Girls niche anymore... :(
    I created over 50 accounts in the last three years and my strategy was always to add them on shoutcart when they reach around 10k followers so I can monetize them with shoutouts. I also have three accounts on buysellshoutouts, but they require over 50 000 followers, so it's not an option for my newest accounts.
    Any ideas how can i sell shoutouts? Landing pages and ogads are not an option anymore, they ban my accounts way too easy nowadays.

    Of course. I tried nearly everything possible with OGAds and Crakrevenue in 2014/2015. Nowadays, the result will be worse (Networks are more strict these days and conversions are way down due to mass spam from users). Shoutouts are the only way I can be successful on IG and now I don't know how to find new clients since I can't use shoutcart anymore. Maybe I'll switch niches in the future, we will see.

    "Shoutouts are the only way I can be successful on Instagram" is 100% incorrect. Just relax, take a step back and think of these pages as a business, not as pages to make a few quick bucks with shoutouts.

    Fyi, shoutouts will make you next to nothing at this point.

    10k will make you peanuts in shoutouts and drop your engagement at the same time. You're better off growing the account more and looking at your options once you get enough engagement to make shoutouts valuable.
