How To Make Money Online Using Instagram

The majority of us use it and we spend a great deal of time taking Instagram worthy photographs to share. For most of us the action of repeatedly checking the app is more frequent. With such frequency comes the thought of a business endeavor. We come across all kinds of pages and often wonder how such endeavor can be achieved. Lucky for you I have quite a bit of experience using Instagram and have turned it not only into a self promotion subject but also a money making one. Below, I will share the top ideas and methods of using this social network as a paycheck.

We have come across many pages promoting certain products and businesses. That leads us to wonder, "How do these mere actions bring profit?"

Business Promotion

If you have a business or store, Instagram can be used as an advertising application which makes it very easy to reach an audience and therefore a potential clientele. First start by creating a whole account based on your business and giving it a very professional look. Then, proceed by adding content in the form of creative photographs of your business. Caption such photos in a creative manner and afterwards, add a comment of yours including hashtags which describe the photo. Try to include a fairly good amount of hashtags but make sure not to overdo it to avoid a non-professional look. Follow and like content in order to gain followers. When reaching high amounts of followers and exposure, you will have created a reputation as an established business and purchases will come flowing with little work.

Self Promotion

This method is pretty spot on and easy. If you’re an aspiring model, singer, writer, actress or artist, it is incredibly beneficial to get your name and story heard and create a base of fans as well as supporters in the form of followers. With exposure come job offerings which will generate income and potentially fame.

Affiliate Groups

If you have a fairly popular account, you can turn it into a money making machine. By joining groups which you will advertise for and post their content for a percentage of sale proceedings, you can make money in a very quick and easy manner. Look around and you will find plenty of them such as FitTea, Weight loss wraps and etc.


This method will only generate money if you are an immensely popular user. If you capture the eye of advertisers, you can very well be paid simply for sharing content or even speaking of the company. Just follow the story of Jessica Vanessa; the twerking formal kindergarten teacher making six figures in six seconds using Instagram.

Account Sales

If you’re fairly good at capturing the attention of followers or using your own account to deliver followers to a new account, you can be bringing profit by simply selling your account after reaching a certain amount of followers. Many social media companies do not have time to reach an audience or get exposure and look for already famous accounts to establish their footprint. Keep in mind, such account sales need to have real and active followers. If you play your cards right, you could very well be making passive income.

Blogging Traffic

If you have a blog or site, you know how important it is to have visitors in order to generate profit from any clicks on advertisement. Without having a social media presence, reaching blog traffic is painfully hard. Therefore, if you have worked hard on reaching an audience on Instagram, you can easily share your blog and watch your traffic go up.

Overall, there are many unique and creative ways to make money using Instagram and these were just some of the most popular methods. It is very important to keep your focus on one method at a time in order to perfect it. While the beginning phases will be hard, the final outcome will be worth it and it is very important not to give up.
