    I am curious how anyone knows what to charge?

    My accounts are creeping their way up to 15k followers each and I think It's time to start doing a few shouts here and there.
    What are the general prices for different amounts of followers, such as:
    Shout price at 15k followers
    Shout price at 30k followers
    Shout price at 60k followers

    etc, etc. Is there any way I can get an idea of what people normally charge, or is there a rule of thumb?

    depends on niche + level of engagement. Do you get 10 likes on every picture? 1000 likes?

    my opinion is doing these on a 15k account is a sure fire way to lose a ton of fans...guaranteed.

    It depends on the engagement not on the followers, and 15k followers is way too soon to start selling shoutouts

    Saying "dont do it" really doesn't help with what I'm asking at all..

    Try starting with a low price and see if people buys shoutouts from you, then you can start increasing the price

    It has a lot to do with the followers.

    But to answer op's question I would say about
    15k gets 1k likes per pic- $20
    30k gets 2k likes per pic- $30
    60k gets 3k likes per pic- $50

    You can always ask for more or less...

    Contact people within your niche and see what kind of prices they charge.

    I will give you some real examples to answer your question
    acc: auto.u##### 350k followers avg. 6k likes niche: cars - 12$/SoutOut for a product
    acc: must##### 110k followers avg. 4.5k likes niche: cars - 8$/SoutOut for a product
    my acc : ###### 65k followers avg 5k likes niche cars - 10$/ SoutOut for other accs.

    So your account with 15k followers will be worthless if you have less then 2k likes per pic but that ofc depends on your niche

    Ya there are huge price differences between all the niches, I wouldn't expect too many people to be interested in buying shouts from a 15k page though.
