Every single social media app can be monetized. All it takes is brainstorming and thinking strategically.
Yes, you are correct to say that Instagram doesn’t have a monetization feature like Facebook. For some unknown reason, Mark Zuckerberg has refused to allow Instagram monetization(like the way he did for FB), but this isn’t stopping the brilliant ones.
While others are using Instagram as nothing other than a social app, there are intelligent individuals using Instagram to make good money.
Any one can make money on Instagram, and interestingly there are different ways to actually earn money using the platform. In this article, I shall unveil about three different brilliant methods you can use to earn from Instagram.
1. Sell Via Instagram Ads
“Does Instagram Have a Marketplace Like Facebook?” Actually, the answer to the question is no. But you can still make Instagram your personal marketplace for selling all kinds of products to thousands and millions of customers.
Pretty easy. With the ability to run ads on the app, you can be able to reach anyone and everyone. And if your issue is that you don’t have a product of your own to sell, well you don’t need to worry about that. Ever heard of reselling?
All you simply need, is find a seller who sells at cheap rates. Then advertise his products via IG ads, but sell the products by adding slightly to the price.
This is a brilliant way many folks use to make money on Instagram. It wasn’t just discovered. Many people have been doing it for years, and they earn big from this.
Before getting started, do well to research on how to run Instagram ads like a professional.
2. Allow Sponsored Posting on your Timeline
Do you get lots of likes and comments on your Instagram posts? Is your Instagram post engagements increasing all the time?
If yes, then you can make money on Instagram by allowing sponsored posting on your timeline.
Sponsored posting means getting paid to make a post for someone, but on your own handle.
People(especially brands) are ready to pay you if you have lots of followers on Instagram. The point of this is to raise an awareness to your followers that they have a product or service to offer.
So if you have lots of followers and/or lots of engagements on Instagram, then make it known that you accept sponsored posts.
This will allow you earn more money via your Instagram account.
3. Be a Instagram Brand Influencer/Ambassador
Another smart and easy way to make money on Instagram is by becoming a brand influencer or ambassador.
No, you do not necessarily need to be a celebrity before you can become and influencer.
Simply reach out to brands and let them know that you can be their influencers on Instagram. Ensure you are getting followers on your Instagram account too.
There are many other brilliant ways to earn money from Instagram as well. And you can freely hop online to do some research on it.
