    It is common to see many journeys saying with 20k ~ 50k followers people are already earning at least $ 50 a day, THIS IS FAKE.


    I have accounts from different niches, with more than 30k followers and mean what I do is 1 shoutout a week, even sending DM for people


    Do not go thinking that it will make money, because if you do not have at least 500k followers your profit will be null.

    Shoutouts are not the only way to monetize and engagement is more important than total followers.

    how many likes are you getting per pic average?

    That you do not know how to effectively utilize the resources you have does not mean that others dont.

    Just because YOU can't doesn't mean others can't as well. Maybe, just maybe, someone spent more time, did better optimization, or maybe just got lucky? I mean honestly, this thread is trash.

    I don't believe that they are fake. But there are some really misleading guide/success story threads created purely for promotional purposes.

    Like that guy who seeks 500$ in return of FL bot with his settings setup, and his great tips for growth, common give me a break, what can you tell me, that I dont know when we are talking about platform that gives you only few actions to perform (follow/unfollow, like, comment, hash tags).

    It's all about hard work, testing and marketing common sense.

    Oh... I had 2 accounts running 24/7 making me well over $100/day.
    Once they reached the follow limit I switched accounts and reached the same amount of money using the brand new accounts.
    You might just suck at monetizing your followers? If so, just throw in a CPA iPhone 6 offer, that seems to convert well overall.

    Stop blaming others and improve yourself instead. :)

    (Sorry for the bragging, not intentional, just wanted to get my point out clearly.)

    My method was churn & burn, I couldn't be bothered spending days unfollowing not making any money. If you want to read the thread that I got the method from - here it is! On page 4 you can see both the result of the first day but also about 3 months later when I reported how it went.

    Maybe OP is talking about more long-term accounts, I personally have no experience with them.

    Maybe you need to learn how to make money. Maybe your method of getting clients just sucks. Don't say its fake just because you cant do it. Maybe if you change your attitude and believe it can be done then maybe you will fulfill what others have.

    It was pretty clear from his post they had achieved the follow limits. This can easily be an internal figure he's created for himself, or can be recognized when revenue declines beyond a certain point. It's likely his system is tight, and he easily recognizes when it's time to start working on the next set of accounts. Many people are very satisfied to have a model generating $100+/day, and do whatever it takes to sustain their profits - even if that means giving up some accounts from time to time. Or maybe they got banned. What was done was easily repeated with similar results. That's what matters in the end - that others are doing what OP is not. I think OP should look for reasons to improve his/her models, tighten things up, or re-evaluate the whole setup because one can/should definitely be doing more shoutouts than indicated based on those volume levels. Of course monetizing with CPA can add more money to the bottom line as could externally harvesting the leads, segmenting them, and marketing back to them via email. OP is boxed in. Crawl out of the box.

    hahaha what a waste of thread! i have a friend that has an account with 22k followers and make more then $50
    and he doesn't sell any shoutouts.. Its easy to make a profit and make it work for a long term..just think out side the box and
    it can work out!

    of course, I know of to make money on instagram.


    But I'm saying in shoutouts, maybe I was not very clear.
    IS VERY HARD, someone want to buy shoutouts, and already changed several times my approach the person.

    Hmm.. thanks btw, and do you mean to say that if I have 500,000 followers, I will earn $1 ???

    That's still is a huge potential income for me... may be 10 years hence! Because at present I have ONLY zero IG followers. Hmm... Hmm...

    You have made IG lose a great member (me of course) though, and for that IG will not be pleased with you. lol
    :)
