    Between me and a mate we've got over 2.5 million followers over several accounts.

    The account's are all different niches: sports, tattoos, art, funny videos, cctv, cars and models.

    Got an app being made but won't be ready for a few months.

    Anyone got any ideas on how we can try and monetize all the pages?

    Sell it as marketing.
    If they are real followers you can sell ads

    You can start by selling shoutouts.
    And then monetise it with a website, an app or simply with CPA.

    Great reiteration of the above posts igerslike..

    OP - Your best shot for long term is to drive people off your ig channel and convert on merchandise or run affiliate deals with companies. You can do the above but its only recommended as a short term solution. Most people in your situation develop their your own 'ad network' with their channels as the target demographics or they build a site with CPA/CPM like LleixG recommended. For example: sports may be a great affiliate play and models may be a good CPM play. However, the choice is up to you.

    REMINDER TO ALL:

    This is not a Marketplace thread, so please do not entice the OP
    into selling anything. You will get him into trouble for selling outside
    of our Marketplace.

    Thank You . . .

    Do you have a similar audience on Facebook or Twitter, or is it solely IG?

    Just found this one , not sure if its legit and im not either affiliate or trying to make marketing , but try out brandnew.io , there are several more web-sites like that , where you pickup your niche and they will pay you per marketing campaigns.

    You can alternate affiliate offers. Redirect domains (alternate those too since IG redflags domains that direct to AO's)

    Try sites as fiverr, add your kik / business mail in your bio on all the accounts and sell s/o's untill your app is ready, when it is ready make sure you are not posting to many advertisements, it will scare your followers away and the accounts will bleed followers, nevertheless you are in a good spot if all your followers are real. You should not lower the quality of your page by those affiliate programs posts, go for the long run and you'll see it will pay off, you can make a website aswell.

    Hope this helped

    Thanks for the replies guys! Just to clarify we're not selling shoutouts and we don't intend to sell any and all PM's I've received requesting this have been ignored.


    We've got a few sites for a few of the pages with Adsense & ads from Crakrevenue but the RPM on Adsense is around £0.90 - £1 and the traffic isn't converting too well with Crak.



    Cheers man, I'll have a look into that.

    I make apps and specialize in monetizing them. In my experience, social media has been the best way to promote them if done correctly. I have worked on a few successful apps but they cost me a good amount as I have no social media influence. I am looking for people who own large social media accounts that they can leverage in promoting the apps as well as using their promos/shoutouts/retweets/etc with other large account owners so that we can split the profits of these apps.

    I would love to be apart of a nice, long term partnership!

    PM if interested. Thanks!

    If you have the same with Twitter you can use a webmaster program like a Adult program, and add with a tool like hootsuite a setup to each day send one code link to get sales.

    With that amount of followers you can do a lot.
    How many UVs a day do you think you would get to your aff link?

    Try mobile content lockers out as the conversion rate is just great.
