Hey guys, i have 2 separate questions about the same thing.
I recently grew an IG account to 10k in 4 months and have a really good following that is surprisingly transferring quite well onto our online platform/website outside of instagram. We basically make blogs, create podcasts and other media and also feature creatives within our community.
My question is about making money with it, I plan on charging for people to feature their work on the site in future, but also want to make money with ads/traffic.
I applied to adsense but got refused and their reasoning was a bunch of extreme things that my site doesn’t host, but one that did was copyright. I have my IG feed on my site also, is this a form of copyright and not allowing me to put ads on there?
If not does anyone have any idea why id be getting declined?
My second question:
Other than adsense, where i believe i only get money IF people click on an ad, what other ways could i make money by driving traffic to the site etc?
This is all new to me and am really keen to learn so any insight would be great from you guys
