    How many follows do you need before you should start monetising? I have nearly 5k followers and want to start selling shout outs is it too soon if not how much should I charge?

    For shoutouts, yes, too early to do that. Unless, of course, there are some people who are already willing to pay you for a shoutout. :p

    You need to buy shout outs now, selling is far away.

    Got a long way to go before you will be in the fortunate position to profit from shoutouts buddy. Keep at it.

    More then followers, its about how much engagement you generating on your posts.. People buy shoutouts based on that..

    I've bought shout outs before and I got a very bad return on my money do people really advise this? I usually get 180-300 comments and just a hand full of likes on each post.

    You are a long ways away my friend. I would say another 3-6 months of growth

    I think you need to get more follows with more good engagement will be the perfect time to make an entry.

    I'm at 8k and i'm selling shoutouts for $2 for 2 hours. I've made $8 in a month. It's not much and you won't be making many sales. Also it might not be worth it if the shoutouts you post will cause a lot of people to unfollow you.

    I use Shoutcart. It works well if you know how to sell your account to the potential buyers.

    Depends what you consider decent money. I just made $30 from my 8k account today because a guy reached out to me looking to promote his brand with 2 posts every week. If you actively look for opportunities and focus on maintaining high quality on your posts you will be able to make money. On the other hand, don't focus too much on the money for now. Focus on growing your audience and the money will come later. PM me if you have any more questions
