How do you get a shout out to someone's page?

Shout outs are not like guest posts.|
The person that you are approaching to do a shout out is not posting on your Instagram ... they are posting on THEIR Instagram page.
It's basically a paid image post on popular Instagram account that fits your target audience.
You piggyback on the pages' traffic and your picture will be seen, liked and commented by thousands of users within your niche.
To get a shout out prepared for posting by the popular page, you want to take the following steps:
Step 1. Find a popular page in your target niche willing to do shoutouts - there are certain indicators (they say things like "contact for business opportunities" or have a KiK account listed, etc.).
Step 2. Reach out to the seller to negotiate a price for the shout out ($50 to $300 are typical for a 3 hour slot depending on how many followers the page has), and arrange for the day and time they will post your content.
Step 3. Prepare a 640px by 640px image (or 15 second video). Regardless of which you choose, write a creative caption that will engage and convert followers, getting them to tag their friends and share the image (contests, questions and hot topics are good places to start).
