First of all a bit of background - I have a 65K Instagram account in the Meditation/Mindfulness niche. I believe, looking at other similar accounts that I am the biggest account in this niche that isn't run by bots aside from the big 2, Calm and Headspace. At first I was just posting quotes but recently I have been offering a lot more value like Meditations, Q&A's, Polls etc so my engagement and relationship with my followers is pretty good. I regularly receive DM's from people asking for advice, recommendations and thanking me for helping them with my posts. I think people see me as a brand now rather than just a page. I watermark all of my photos to help this.
I have made $2K approx from shoutouts and was offered a 75% commission on a new app but unfortunately I did not make any money from offering it. My original plan was to open a Shopify Dropshipping Store + Blog Mix but I am worried about the returns process and the long delivery times. I am also concerned it would not resonate well with my followers.
I know there is a lot more money to be made out of my account but I am at a bit of a loss which the next best step forward should be.
Any further suggestions would be appreciated
Update: I am now sitting at 120K and still am unsure what to do with it. Please read latest post
