Creative Ways To Earn Money On Instagram

In the past year, Instagram has become a real force to be reckoned with in the marketing world.
Well, now is the perfect time to cash in on its growing popularity. If you’re prepared to put in the time and commitment, you can easily find yourself in a position where you can start making serious money from your Instagram account. There are a few simple ways you can increase your amount of followers whilst building a professional look for your account.

Fill out your bio with all the right information – This includes your contact information, what you post about and where you’re from. Add in a few keywords and a couple of hashtags.

Post regularly – To grow follower numbers, make sure you are publishing one quality photo every day.

Take good photos – Make sure your images are of the best quality with attractive effects.

Use relevant hashtags – Familiarise yourself with the best ones to do with your field of interest and make sure you are including them in every single post.

Engage with your followers – Make time every single day to engage with your followers or anyone involved in your industry by commenting on and liking images. People will be drawn to check out your account and, hopefully, join your loyal rank of followers.

Now it’s time to start making money.

Affiliate Marketing – With Instagram, you post attractive images highlighting their products and drive sales through your affiliate URL (this should be provided by your affiliate).

Create Sponsored Posts (Find Sponsors!) – In a nutshell, a piece of sponsored content on Instagram is a photo or video that highlights a product or a brand. These posts are accompanied by captions that may include branded hashtags, @mentions, or links. However, it’s important that any brands or products you promote are a good fit for your own personal image on Instagram.

Sell Your Photos – If you’re a professional (or amateur but keen!) photographer, Instagram is a great way to advertise and sell your shots to either individuals or agencies. Add a watermark to your snaps and use the captions to list all selling details in a concise manner. Use appropriate hashtags and get a conversation going with influential photography agencies.

Promote Your Business, Products Or Services – Here are some creative ways to promote your products or services

  • Behind the scenes – Behind the scenes is appealing and adds a certain realness to what you’re doing and people love that.
  • Your customers’ photos – Get customers to share their images of your products. This is a proven successful method of selling and would make a great addition to your account. You can also market your services through Instagram with snazzy infographics and exclusive offers.

Sell Your Instagram Account – You can actually sell your Instagram account if (for whatever reason) you can no longer manage it.
