    Hey guys, I'm starting an Instagram Journey very soon and I've been wondering how the shoutout market was for accounts with 100k+ followers.

    1. Do you DM or email customers directly to ask them if they want a shoutout or do customers contact you?

    2. Do you have enough demand to do shoutouts every day?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I don't want to buy shoutouts, I'll have a few large accounts in a few months so I wanted to know how much money can be made.

    most big accounts (business ones) that offer shoutouts have kik in their bio, so kik them
    or else DM them
    dont spend too much on shoutouts.. they don't gain as much as you hope, unless you have very unique content.
    also don't buy shoutouts based on followers, buy it based on engagement

    This is a great advice. I'd also say if you have the budget don't spend it on s/o but buy an established account with good engagement - you will spend a bit more maybe initially but you are straight in the game

    Also, your comment got me thinking, how much is an account with 100k followers and great engagement (15%) worth?

    i have a 102K page and i just sell shoutout for $10 for 24 hours, i get like 1,600-2,000 likes per photo and i only sell shoutouts like once very 2 weeks, make money from other things, shoutouts don't get you anything unless you run some stupid, "relatable teen posts" accounts that 14 year olds will want shoutouts to their personal pages on, i sell shirts and am making like $600-$800 a week and i'm 18

    We just launched ShoutoutZoo which is designed to help you sell more shoutouts.... in your experience do you have a good number of people asking to do shoutouts for your account?

    Regarding your question, the value of a 100k account and it's monthly profit highly depends on niche, engagement and what you do to make money. So a 100k account could make from zero to a couple of thousand $ a month in case it's in a profitable niche and the owner knows exactly what to do. However most 100k accounts make less than 1k (source: my experience).

    There's one exception: If you are a beauty blogger or something similar to this on Instagram, you can make pretty good money with a 100k account. That's because these accounts are significantly more authentic, so followers are more likely to actually buy the stuff the blogger wears/promotes, compared to a random ad picture on a fashion account.
