    It's in the bodybuilding niche, I compiled a pretty professional looking cold email and contacted about 20 supplement companies but none answered in about a week.
    I tried to join Shoutcart when I had 30k followers and got denied by for 'not meeting standards' even though I hovered around 15% engagement at 30k at the time. I gain about 2k-3k followers a week so I'm ok waiting till 60k or something if I have to.

    Where can I go to monetize this account? I currently use it to grow my email list which I will monetize down the line, around 1000 subscribers currently. But I want to monetize my account directly with paid shoutouts and I keep hitting a brick wall, anyone got help?

    It's only about 1000 people, is that really big enough to start sending offers?

    Ok, I'll start looking around for some affiliate networks- any personal recommendations? Amazon payouts are way too low imo.

    Hit up commission junction for offers in your niche. And check offervault.

    Definitely keep on contacting the big brands but most likely they would go for bigger accounts. So before 200K, aim for small medium sized business in this niche.
    Affiliate networks on CPA or CPL could be interesting and keep the content and your followers growing.

    Think outside the box as well as who would need such products. Not necessarily gym lovers but health, well being and motivation niches....
