Thanks for your fast reply! I noticed you mentioned bringing down the cost per shoutout by agreeing to pay for multiple, do you pay them in advance for this? How do you feel about it? I mean you're pretty much stuck if after a few shoutouts you realise their followers aren't producing any sales.

Yes, I am always pay in advance, People who get advance payment for 8-10 shouts, can negotiate as much as possible. That's what I am always looking for.

I always get engagement and sales if everything according to me. I mean better traffic, good bounce rate etc. If I still not getting sales from particular account within 2-3 shouts then I mark red flag on that account and use trackable link in their bio for ex. goo.gl to track how many hits he / she sending me. Then I decide I will continue further shoutouts or not

Thank you

Great stuff. I'm currently gathering a list of IG accounts I want to contact. Your info in this thread and the replies to my questions helped a lot. Yes I was pretty impressed by your low bounce rate and good average session. Congratulations and best of luck for the future!

Very cool and congrats on the sales!

Some questions if you may :)
- How many visitors you get from a normal $20 shutout on IG? (Roughly)
- You pay $20 for a shutout where the number of the followers are how many + average engagement on their posts?
- How do you actually advertise? I mean do you run a giveaway, tag your IG username on a post description or what? Can you show an example?

Thank you very much :)

why not do FB ads - it works so much more efficiently and potentially reach far more people per $ spend.
I've spend $50 yesterday on Facebook ads with probably a good targeting and main traffic from top tier countries which drove about 200 unique visitors yet 0 sales.

I had a store about 6 months ago and it generated daily 15 sales with FB ads but now it's not really working. But I'll need to test more and more...

Hello Asif,

My name is Anup and i am from Assam, India. I have gone through your posts and i feel they are really helpful and inspiring. I am very new to this ecommerce thing and have started a new general store couple of months back. I am still in the learning phase and wish to learn a lot about the Instagram Shoutouts.
I have read about this in few blogs but i want to learn from someone who has done it and who has got results. Also, you have mentioned in your posts that you have successfully created few accounts within the price range of $3-$10, which is exactly i am looking for.
Please share your thoughts and insight knowledge about Instagram Shoutouts with me and i will be really grateful for your help. You can send me an email to anup.ecom30@gmail.com or you can also whatsapp me @ 80118 18290.

Thanks in advance
Regards
Anup
