Funny, just did something similar, although it was a previously deactivated photography page one type to another, both involving models. It’s been losing followers with pretty bad engagement ever since, even with some of the same photos being posted from the previous page that they were all followers of.
It’s been rough, I’d say starting fresh would be a better idea, but I’m still figuring out what will happen or work with this first. I guess it’s more of an experiment than anything else.
One thought with using the old one as a shoutout page, if it’s been inactive/bleeding when you wiped it, engagement may be terrible (don’t know how yours is) which could be really hard to use for shouting your other account out. Assuming it doesn’t pick up eventually.
I agree with what is said above !
You can use the babe page for shoutouts to generate trafic.
But deleting everything and posting your pics (that are a little bit more normal) would set you on a bad course for engagement and growth in general
You made the good choice !
An account on such topic will grow fast for sure
