    Hi guys, I'm a long time lurker. My end goal is to sell shoutouts but I've been considering a different strategy and would love it if you guys could critique it, so fire away! Basically the strategy would be to use links (in the bio) on IG accounts to a niche site (product reviews, comparisons etc) with amazon affiliate links on it.

    One of the IG accounts would be the same as the domain of the niche site, and probably generate most of the traffic to the site. The others would be used to drive traffic to this IG account, as well as some to the actual site (again, all using links in the bios of the accounts). For example: a website and IG account called "brilliantbeardoils" and 4 more beard related IG accounts which drive traffic to this account and the site.

    The major problem I foresee is low conversions.

    TLDR: Do you think it's realistic to use a few IG accounts to direct traffic (which converts) to a niche site with amazon affiliate links?

    This is the exact idea I've had. Got my niche sorted and just purchased a month on mass planner and just finished setting up Instagram on it, it's on around 120 followers and 300 following at the minute ( started it manually ). How is yours getting along? And do you have any tips etc - going to set up a couple more Instagram pages but wasn't sure whether I should create them in the same niche and send to same site.... Or get a new domain setup a new Wordpress site ( basically copy the old one and just put new info on..) and new Instagram for that aswell... And again 2 or 3 more times? Any info is appreciated!!! And hope yours is going okay ;):)
