    Hi guys,

    I have a 10k IG account and I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to monetize it. Thing is it's in the 420 niche, and Instagram is known to be harsh concerning that...

    I've seen similar accounts promoting business pages without any problems and I'm thinking of going down that path.

    Have a good one,

    Try creating a simple website and drop ship grinders and other related items that are sold on amazon. If it can be sold on amazon then I am sure it is okay for you to sell the same items on your own website without having to worry about ig.

    You can reach out to local pot shops and ask them if they would like to advertise on your IG account. You can charge them 10$ to begin with.

    I was thinking of doing something along those lines as I really want to get more into affiliate marketing. Do you think I should set up a new IG page with a website link in bio and post ads on my other account? Or is it OK to put an e-commerce link on an IG page even if it isn't an official business page.

    Thanks for your insights, guys!

    Sell shoutouts. Buy shoutouts for more growth, not really a large Instagram at 10k, grow it some more.

    Buy weed from dispenseries and sell them with a markup or better yet grow your own and sell it.

    Lol just kidding, best would be to sell shoutouts to small businesses or sell cool products related to smoking, pipes, bongs, etc

    A good strategy for getting more sales within a particular niche is: DO WHAT WORKS!

    Look around your niche (Explore the tags, look at the top tags and the users who post those pics/videos)
    Make a list of the top players in your niche, the ones that get tons of likes and grow daily. Those are the ones likely to be also getting paid to post to their accounts. I know there are tons of "alternative" model type chicks that do deals with a lot of mom-and-pop 420 brands.. Make a list of those, Start DMing and offering to promote their page, product, service.

    Just look at the market/landscape, Identify key accounts/users and key brands that deal with them. Rub elbows

    Sorry for the late reply, I would take the time to set up a legit website that even you would buy from. Does not have to have 100s of products available to buy, it can just have 1. There are website themes out there that specialize in selling just one unique product. Remember a lot of times people will spend a bit more if the product looks good and your website looks good (its all about trust). Make the website as modern as possible and brand it. Shopify can really help.

    Dropship from aliexpress on your website using your own link on one ig account. Create some more ig accounts to help push your website more.
