    Recently I started following some funny Vine accounts on Instagram that ranged in the few millions of followers. I noticed they had their business email and Kik in the bio, obviously for shoutouts and stuff. I contacted a few of them and asked how much they charge
    for shoutouts. One of them told me they charge 60/hour, another 65/hour, and the rest were around 90-100/hour. Knowing how much they could make from posting multiple shoutouts a day, how hard would it be to build up an account like their's?

    Wtf? Why would they charge by the hour, that doesn't even make sense. It should be $60 / 65 / 90 per shoutout.

    It's hard and not easy, takes loads of time and dedication. Bots will help to make it easier but it will still take time.

    That's what I don't understand as well, why there's a trend of charging for shoutouts per hour or several hours. I guess some of these people just do this to make more money and keep their feed "clean", that's it.

    It will take you years to reach a few million followers, even by using bots

    They charge for hours because they don't want these posts to permanently ruin their feed.
    Also, they can easily sell multiple posts a day like this, but with permanent posts it looks really spammy if they post 4-5 pics a day.

    I used to own the giant vine channels (Buzzvines, Bestvines, etc.) on youtube before selling them. I know most people say go ahead! Its never too late. But honestly, for vines, I wouldn't get into them unless you have some cash to invest and grow your accounts on IG. At the same time I started my yt channels I did FB too. The thing is, I got millions of views within weeks on YT, while all in all on facebook my page got 25,000 likes. Why? (Sure maybe my advertising of the page sucked and it could've been better, butttt..) It wouldn't have reached the same success as my channels. Simply because there were like 20 big facebook pages already while on youtube I was one of the first. For instagram, I mean, theres giant vine pages right now and it's really a small niche. It's pretty specific, since mostly for vines you'll only have people wanting to watch either comedy vines, action vines, celeb, or something cringe/weird.

    Anyways, let's skip over all of that. I'm not telling you don't do it, but if you want to, you must realize you will never get the followers as fast as they did and you'll require much persistence. Those vine pages got their millions in a relatively short time, probably when vines were the big thing. Now they're growing just because they're so massive. Sure you can reach a million followers, but like someone else pointed out, it'll take years. Best thing to do? Look for something else that's viral right now. Heck, even the charlie charlie posts on IG when they were popular for like a day last week got a few accounts decent followers. I saw a new account get like 20-30k just because it went slightly viral. There's tons of small things like that every week on IG. Good luck with whatever you do. And also, I tried paying for shoutouts in the past but it doesn't get you much followers. It works.. yes, but it's overpriced by about 10x-15x.

    Couldn't have said any better myself.

    @OP, an account with 100k followers is enough to make you money in the "funny video" niche.

    I have a couple that are making some decent coin.
