Was thinking, seeing people struggling, having blocks, ACs, issues, contemplating closing their businesses… how many people will continue doing IG automation by the end of the year… last 5-ish months have been pretty brutal.

I’ll be one of the last roaches left. Saved all my money during the good times. Been doing this since 2013. Will always find a way to provide value for clients. It’s more expensive and time consuming than ever before, but if you’ve ever worked a corporate job then you know this is still way easier and more profitable. The margins are still insane.
Great to read someone with common sense Even tho my income skyrocketed compared to my last job as a web designer, I still do not spend more. Which helped me starting new projects that were otherwise not possible or made it possible to survive times when big projects die off.
Honestly, are you a “botter” or are you a marketer? If you can’t find a way to transfer your knowledge of Instagram marketing (or social media marketing in general) into another area then I don’t know what to say…
100%, I agree! In fact, I was one of these people- I was looking for something to spend my time doing because my lack of decisiveness was making it impossible for me to do anything else.
I guess my point is, if Instagram messing around with everything is the reason for you ending your entrepreneurship endeavours, then entrepreneurship probably isn’t something you’re cut out for (which is 100% okay).
I’m only speaking from experience- I’ve been at this for around 4 years now and I know how brutal it can be to have things collapse (it’s happened to me multiple times) but the thing is, I’m still here, because I enjoy entrepreneurship as a whole.
