In today’s world, there are kids on Instagram making more money than people with full time jobs in London. That’s how powerful social media can be – if you know how to use it right. If you have an instagram account with a decent amount of followers, then you’re pretty much sitting on a gold mine. If have roughly 5k followers or more, then you can easily make money through your own account. If you don’t have that many followers, I’d suggest you click here to read my blog on how to grow your instagram page. Today I’m going to share 3 methods for beginners which you can use today to turn your instagram profile into a cash stream.
- Sell Shoutouts
There will always be someone with less followers than you. If you grow your page to a decent size (anywhere from 1k upwards) people will certainly be willing to pay you to promote their page. Obviously the more followers you have, the more you can charge for a shoutout, so bare that in mind when deciding on prices for your clients. I’d suggest advertising shoutouts with a reasonable price on your story, because in most cases someone will dm you asking more about it. However the most successful method I have found is using Shoutcart.com. Here you can not only buy cheap shoutouts from pages with millions of followers, but you can also sell your own shoutouts too.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Set up a website and start blogging. Blogs are a great way of connecting with your audience on a more personal level. You can sign up to many affiliate schemes, the most popular being Amazon’s, for free. All you have to do is create an account, and then for any product on Amazon you will be given a link that is specific to you. Review this product, paste the links in your blogs, and then Amazon will pay you commissions if your audience buy the product through your link. Easy money!
Shopify is turning ordinary people into millionaires. This method is slightly more long-winded, but can make a lot of money if done well. Shopify is a website you can use to set up your own online shop. In many cases you don’t even need to handle the actual products – that’s all done for you. Choose your product you would like to sell and get going. The most effective way I have seen people promote their Shopify stores is through instagram. Simply post about it on your story, on your feed or even just put a link in your bio to your store. As your page grows, more and more people will visit your store, and eventually more and more people will buy your products…
