    earning with instagram and ogads hasnt been working for me the way i was expecting. I hope you can read this short post and give me your advice on where to go next.

    I have been trying to earn with instagram like many others, but i have experienced some trouble earning with ogads. I have failed to get more than 3 clicks in a day on my Ogads stats.

    I am running 7 Instagram accs (was running 15 but a few got banned)
    all accs follow 500 a day
    follow sources are relative keywords and friends of followers using MP

    my landing page set up looks like this: Weebly page with CTA button --> Ogads landing page

    I have been running these accs for about a week now.

    Average stats are 2000 following and 250 followers

    4 accs in beats by dre giveaway niche
    3 accs in bath bomb niche

    I have tried everything i can think of to increase my earnings, but the most i have earned in a single day has yet to exceed 45 cents.

    I can see how many clicks i get to my landing pages from weebly. The beats landing page has 6 UV's and the bath bombs page has 0 views.

    The only reason i can think of for my low earnings is that the niches are over saturated. What do you guys think i should do from here? Im clearly gaining followers but not clicks.

    Because you only have 250 followers? You won't earn much with that.

    Run more accounts if you are autorunning but be warned that instagram ads are dying.

    Simply put, you do not have enough followers to earn any money.

    How much money can you make off instagram? Don't you need to have thousands of quality followers?

    You should be making at least $0.5/account. It is obvious you are not getting enough clicks from IG.

    Possible reasons are:
    1. Bad targeting. Change people you follow. Do not follow people by keywords.
    2. Bad username, bad copy writing, not clear CTA in your bio
    3. Both of the above

    Try to test more niches, with 7 accounts you can try 7 niches. When you find the winner, target it with all your accounts, forget about the others.

    Do not follow people by keywords means that I shouldnt follow them by hashtags right? Like #beats #drdre etc..
    What means CTA in bio?

    Yes, following people by hashtags will not give you clear targeting. Find few competitors and follow their followers. When you find the right one, stick to it.

    CTA in bio: your call to action in bio is not clear enough, or it is poorly written. Work on that. Your username, profile pic, text in your bio must be in line with what you are promoting.

    Instagram is getting extremely saturated due to all these journey threads and I bet that most of you guys who do that use the same landing pages, same text and what not. Try to change something, look out for a new niche or something.

    You only have 250 followers. This is nothing. You MUST be patient, keep working/Seeding... You said that this took just a week. Do what the others above have suggested. And three months later analyze.

    All people here that claim that he hasnt enough followers: You dont need followers for this method. If im understanding right, hes using the OGads IG method where you put a link in bio and you follow targeted people, they will look on your profile, see the link, and click it if they are interested. You dont need followers for this, because they wont click the link a second time cause they get nothing after completing the CPI offer. But more followers lets the account seem more legit, so it will maybe result in higher conversion rates.

    I have just over 10m likes of very viral pages on Facebook, monetised one page for the first time about 5 weeks ago and I've made just over $35k already. Will only get bigger once i upscale across all the pages.

    I'm moving into the Instagram field and have some knowledge on monetising. PM me your Skype and let's talk. Maybe we can JV with cross-promotion across my network.
