    I am running 3 accounts in mens fashion. They have followers btw 50K to 100K with all real followers and decent engagement(3%-8%). I wonder how large they need to grow to have income to support my life......

    anyone have experience?

    For anyone to answer this question, you need to clarify:
    • How much do you need?
    • How will you monetise?

    Honestly, I'm starting to move away from IG. I don't think there is first world money it, especially after the recent changes. They are pretty much blocking anyone from having reach.

    There are other forums besides this one, and everyone is talking about how their likes and reach has been cut in half. It's pretty obvious what is going on.

    Oddly, it's forcing me to try a spam approach, as real accounts are just not getting traction anymore. The only real money left may be in churn and burn accounts that push a specific high paying offer.

    This is a pointless thread. If you need help scaling to make more money go spend the time and explorer the social network > instagram tab.

    It all depends in what way you're able to monetize those followers, how good the followers are (as in, what's the engagement? anything under 2% is relatively shit for most niches, 2-4% is good, 5%+ is great, and 10%+ is amazing), and how fast the accounts are growing. Also how much money you need to survive. Let's just say the bare necessities, you need $1,500. You can easily achieve that, since your engagement falls under the good/great category, meaning that out of for example 200-250K+ followers if on average 5% of them are active, 10,000-12,500 are probably going to see your image and like it if it's really good. But ads usually do eh so let's cut the numbers in half. Let's work with the lower figure of 5,000. If you throw the 5,000 people a link to a landing page, and only 10% of them end up going through and out of that only 1% converts.. but it's a good CPA offer or maybe your own product that pays you $30 per conversion, congrats, you just made $50. If you really needed to, you could promote that every 3 days in order to switch off, and you'd make $1,500. Are there products and offers that do $30 per conversion? Of course. It can go all the way up to a couple hundred dollars per conversion. Are the numbers I gave realistic, it depends. It's a numbers game. There's so many variables. Is it possible? Most certainly. I've had days where I'd make $500 for 5 minutes of work throwing traffic at a landing page. I had a network of less than 200,000. Not every day was like that though. But if you can't achieve good numbers, no worries. Just grow your accounts more and make some new ones!

    I am so sure that with the current status of the accounts, you can be able to monetize them. However, you will not immediately make a huge amount of money. There is patience that is needed at this. Start looking for companies and organizations that need IG shoutouts, you will for sure make some cash from the small contracts you will have with them.

    Yes. I indeed want to do clothing deals. I am making socks. Actually I have 4th acc (brand acc) making own content in dress shoes 26K follower with 6% to 20% engagement. I started to pre sell socks which would deliver in 2 months for one week and I only have 1 sales....I use other 3 interest accs to drive traffic but they are all donot work well. my content is not highly relevant to my products so ppl donot go to my site. I wish I had money to make shoes then I would probably have good sales. But it seems I have many ways to monetize my 4 accounts. Just need some time to test ..

    My engagement is actually better than before. New algorithms needs really good content matching with followers' interest to grow. But I realized IG is difficult to drive traffic to site even the engagement is good.

    i have not started to monetize myself the accounts but ig is not self running. the main problem it the impossibility to make links with the post.
    to make 1500 you must be a good marketer.

    You would actually be better with a blog. At the blog you have so much more control. You can capture email addresses, advertise, etc.
