Instagram remains one of the most popular social media apps, and despite rivals like TikTok, it’s standing strong.In fact, in the fourth quarter of 2021, Instagram app installs beat its former all-time high by ten percent. The platform’s active user numbers are equally impressive. Instagram can now boast 500 million active daily users. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
If the sustained growth of Instagram wasn’t enough to convince you that it’s a great platform to make money on, maybe the comments of Mark Zuckerberg can convince you. At the company’s first Creator Week in June 2021, he said of Instagram: “Our goal is to be the best platform for creators like you to make a living,”
1.Publish Sponsored Posts and Earn From Advertised Products
Who hasn’t heard of Instagram influencers? Using influencers is perhaps one of the easiest ways to position yourself well and start making money from the social media giant.Influencer marketing is on its rise, according to Social Toaster: 92% of individuals trust word-of-mouth recommendations, 76% of people say that they’re more likely to trust content shared by common people than brands, and 82% of customers want to get referrals from friends before making a purchasing decision.
Again, it isn’t viable for people with a few hundred followers. As I stressed earlier, you need a minimum following of about 3,000 followers and a high engagement rate.
To start building followers, all you have to do is post pictures of your interests. Ideally, these images show your personality, helping you establish a glamorous personal brand. If you’re interested, I have a whole blog showing you how I build followers on Instagram.
Sure, you can follow a planned marketing strategy, but Instagram followers love it when you’re true to your authentic self. As you share pictures and build your influence organically, relevant brands are likely to come knocking, rather than the other way round.
Once you satisfy these criteria, here’s a simplistic version of how to make money on Instagram;
you create a sponsored Instagram post, say a photo or video
you include a branded hashtag, mention, or link to promote a brand
you share it with your audience
The brands pays you
2. Promote Affiliate Offers
Affiliate marketing is similar to sponsored posts. The difference is that you only get paid if people buy the product or service you’re promoting, rather than receive payment for your post. Instead, you earn a commission if people purchase the product or service you’re promoting.
There are positives and negatives to both approaches, and your success often depends on your audience.No matter how many followers you have, you can insert a clickable link in your Instagram bio.Instagram followers pay close attention to Instagram posts, so using captions to tell about affiliate marketing links is a great way to grab the attention.
While sponsored posts deliver you a guaranteed income, you could make a lot more by promoting the right affiliate offer; Weigh up the pros and cons of both methods before deciding which works for you, or just experiment over time.
To do this, look into joining affiliate networks like Shareasale, Clickbank, Awin, and Impact. You can also join individual affiliate programs right from a company’s website or by searching: “COMPANY + affiliate program.”Thus, it’s better to write a call to action, inviting your readers to click on the link in your bio. One note is that it’s important to disclose affiliate links since you get a commission on each sale.
3. Start an Instagram Shop
An Instagram Shop lets you integrate your e-commerce store with your Instagram profile. This is the only way you can promote your products directly to Instagram followers through your posts, Stories, the Explore tab, and the Shop tab on your profile.
Once, there were large amounts of friction for e-commerce store owners wanting to sell through Instagram, but not anymore. Instagram Shopping completely removes friction, letting customers easily check out products in the app and then head to your store at the click of a button.
4.Sell Physical and Digital Products.
Over the last few years, Instagram has turned into a strong sales generator for the right eCommerce store.Since people actually do use Instagram to discover and buy products, they rolled out more business account features like in-app checkout, the shop button, product tags, and shoppable stickers to make the shopping process easier.You can get started with Square Online for free and just pay transaction fees. Then you can upgrade to a paid plan when you’re ready to build a website with your own custom domain.

If you broadcast live on Instagram, Badges are a fantastic way for your followers to show their support. Think of them as tips your audience can give you when you broadcast.

Or you can make a weekly badges with different price.But that only required a good amount of followers let say at least 1 million.If you do not have that kind of followers that will not work.On the other hand if you have less followers then you have to wait long to get 1-10 million followers to make that work.
