Instagram is a popular social networking platform that found its sweet spot in today’s society with its simplicity and massive appeal. It is the perfect combination of business ideas, vanity, socializing, and publicity.

Owned by Facebook, Instagram has over 300 million active users each day. With so many active users per day on a single platform, it gives you an opportunity to use the platform to promote your hustle. It allows you to communicate your business offerings to a particular niche of your choice.

In this post, we’ll talk about how to make money from your Instagram account…so let’s start!

Start Accumulating Followers

Followers are key to attaining success on Instagram. The more followers you have, the higher are your chances of getting your business venture promoted. Follow these steps to get followers for your Insta handle:

Find a post that you like and follow the Instagrammer who created the post. This gives you a chance that this Instagrammer might follow you back  as well

Daily activity on Instagram is essential

Engage your followers by giving them small challenges and offering them giveaways as a reward. Make it fun and engaging. Try to incorporate your business ideas and ask your followers what they think about it

Find out at what time of the day you usually get the most likes. This is the perfect time for you to share photos and video clips in the future. If you want to be a freedompreneur, having a strong follower base is essential

Ask questions and encourage conversation with your followers. For example, “What do you think about …?”

Use local hashtags to highlight location-based activities such as #LondonMarathon, #tourDe FranceParis or the #NewYorkFashionweek

Let other Instagrammers talk about you and tag other profiles in your posts

Photos with good lighting are appealing.

Use your Instagram for Advertising

Partnering up with other companies and brands will give you a chance to earn money from your popular Instagram handle. As an entrepreneur, you will find it easier to promote your business on Instagram because your brand is exposed to millions around the world.

If you get a sponsor, the chance of earning money from your account is like cherry on the top! Ask brands to pay for a post (product placement) on your profile. This strategy can be very lucrative, depending on how many followers your Instagram account has. For example, you have a clothing brand.

You can contact a social media influencer to model your outfits for a fee that you both agree on. Once the deal’s done, you will have a chance to promote your business and earn decent revenue. 

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing and Instagram are a winning combination. If you’re an entrepreneur looking to earn from your Instagram account, all you need to do is sign up for an affiliate program like Amazon for instance. Post a photo with a product that you would like to recommend. In the caption section, paste Amazon’s product link to redirect followers to the main site where they can purchase the product. Amazon will pay you a commission based on the number of sales and hits they’ve had from your Instagram handle.

The power of social media can help you live a life you’ve always dreamed of. Be a freedompreneur and have the freedom to work when you want from anywhere in the world.
