How You Can Use Your Instagram Following to Make Money
Instagram has over one billion active users, which makes this social media site the fastest-growing platform. As Instagram is growing, it has evolved into a powerful marketing tool that businesses and influencers use to reach their potential customers and target audiences.
If you want to earn from Instagram, you need to develop a proper strategy to use this social media platform. Here are some helpful strategies that you can follow and begin making money:
Become an Influencer
Social media influencers earn money by recommending different products or services on their profile. As Instagram is based on images, you can consider this as an ideal place to advertise B2C products. There are many options and categories that you can go for if you want to earn as an influencer on Instagram. The high earning categories are food, video games, DIY, fashion, beauty, and sports.
Furthermore, people are more attracted to influencer marketing. So, if your following is sizable and you have the ability to post engaging content and images, you can partner with various brands.
Become a Brand Ambassador
You can be a brand ambassador after finding success in influencing. When a company or brand wants you to be a partner in a campaign and want you to post multiple posts, you are their brand ambassador. This means that you are representing their brand through your social media platform.
You can possibly become an ambassador if you have a large following. Brands want people to see their advertisement, and if your profile is eligible for that, you can be a brand ambassador.
Open an E-Commerce Store
Instagram is a great way to sell your products. If you do not have enough of a budget to create your own website, you can still earn through this platform. You only have to buy Instagram followers and likes to increase your target audience. Instagram offers multiple tools for direct sales. This way, you can advertise any product or service you want.
You can even become a teacher influence and sell classroom printable, organizational tools, and other products related to teaching. Teacher influencers are earning more than $50,000 every year, just through Instagram. So you just need to decide the product or service you are going to provide and advertise on your Instagram Business Account. You can even convert your personal account to a business account.
Advertising Your Freelance Service
You can also advertise your freelance job on Instagram, such as pet walking, house cleaning, photography, or writing. For that, you need to post your services on Instagram and attract potential clients. For instance, if you are a photographer and you want people to hire you for photography sessions, you can post your work on Instagram. You can turn your profile into a catalog to attract clients.
Even writers can highlight their work on Instagram, and there are multiple applications for that, such as Canva, which allows you to share your posts from your writing.
