    I have a motorcycle instagram and I was thinking about selling some decals as a way to monetize my followers, but I only have around 5k followers.

    I was wondering if I should wait for more or if I should try monetizing this niche a different way.

    Thanks.

    How much do motorbike decals cost?

    You could definitely make some sales at 5k but don't push it. If you're not making sales then I would back off and try again when you have grown a bit.

    To be honest, I would wait until you hit 20k before trying to sell stuff.

    Maybe just add the link and mention in the bio that you sell it, don't do any pictures posts yet

    ultimately it depends on the personalities of your followers. if you have 5k but they are very active in liking/commenting on your posts, then definitely say go for it. i have an account that's in a pretty specific niche but it's filled with middle aged moms with money to spend, so i was able to monetize since around 1k followers and i've grown to 26k so far.

    if you want to consider other options besides decals, i'm sure you can start a blog and talk about motorcycle related things on it, and then you can fill it with affiliate links or CPA offers while directing traffic from insta to your site.

    hope i was able to help
