The Most Profitable Methods To Make Money On Instagram

Many new Instagram users want to know how to make money after seeing the Kim Kardashians worldwide. Bloomberg says that you can expect to earn the following as an Instagram influencer. Even though there is no sure way to make money on Instagram, influencer marketing is one of the more reliable ways.

How does influencer marketing work?

Advertisers pay regular Instagram users to write sponsored posts about their products or services. It is very popular because it works so well. Influencer marketing turns the relationship between a business and a customer into a friendship.

Consider the three statistics listed below:

70% of millennial shoppers decide what to buy based on what their friends say.

30% of clients are more likely to buy a product if a blogger who is not a celebrity recommends it.

Instagram is a site for connecting with people. When you follow someone on Instagram, you start thinking of them as friends. So, if the individual you're following starts talking about and showing you the latest skincare product they're utilizing, you're much more likely to listen to people than to the person who made the product.

There are two things you need to do to get paid advertising on your Instagram page:

  • Gain a large number of followers (5K+)
  • Build up a large group of people interested in your topic and what you have to say.

So, here's how you can reach these two goals while making money as an Instagram influencer:

Find a niche

From the start, you need the plan to get your Instagram account to a point where it can make you money. What kind of page you make will depend on how you answer this question. For example, if you want a company such as Nike or Adidas to notice you, you can make a page about fitness.

Analyze your competitors:

  • What do other Instagram profiles that are successful like yours do? You mean sites that have sponsors already, right?
  • The goal of a competition study isn't to copy your competitors' exact strategies but to learn from their big ideas and use them in your work.

Here's an example:

  • What sorts of things do they put out?
  • How frequently do they post?
  • What time do they post?
  • How do you write their bio?
  • What do their posts' captions say?

If a strategy worked for a different person and got people to the point where they could write endorsed articles, it should also work for you.

Develop content that your audience desires to visit:

To develop your audience, you must make content that people interested in your topic will like. For example, if you like fitness, what kind of content would you need to see on an Instagram profile to want to follow it?

Several brief examples of this type of writing are:

  • Pre- and post-workout smoothies with recipes and photos of them in action at the gym (squats, deadlifts, etc.), exercise tutorials
  • Before-and-after pictures of clients you've trained; motivational quotes from well-known people in the fitness industry;

If you can't believe anything to compose about, you could also look at your competitors' blogs to see what other people in your field are writing.

Research your hashtags:

Even if you have the best stuff in the world, it doesn't do much good if no one sees it. Using the right hashtags in your instructions ensures that the kind of people you want to follow see your content. For example, if you post about fitness but don't use fitness-related hashtags, it will be hard for people in the Insta fitness community to find your content.

And while using popular, broad hashtags such as #fitness is a good start, if you don't add smaller, more specific hashtags that are more relevant to your posts, your posts will be drowned out by the thousands of other posts that use #fitness.

For example, if you upload a picture showing how to squat properly, you could use a small hashtag like #squatforlife and a larger hashtag like #fitness. This way, in addition to the general traffic generated by #fitness, you're showing your articles to a much smaller, more specific group of fitness fans likelier to like your position on doing a good squat.

Hootsuite says that the most interaction happened when about nine hashtags were used. Use a mix of popular hashtags that cover a wide range of topics and less popular, more specific ones. If you use the right hashtags and post the right content, advertisers will see that the people who follow you are the same people they want to reach.

Here are four simple ways to find the best hashtags for your particular niche:

  • Do a keyword search for your area of expertise.
  • Write down the most common words that come up because of your search.
  • Choose a popular hashtag and write down any other hashtags that go with it.
  • Rep with all the main hashtags and then all the hashtags that go with them.

After doing this, you ought to have a long list of pertinent hashtags to help you reach the people you want to reach.

Engage the right people:

Hashtags are one way that people can find each other. Engaging with people in your community is another thing you can do. Neil Patel found that he got about six new followers for every 100 likes he got. Use the hashtags you learned about during your research to start talking to people who use them.

This way, when you start getting followers because of your participation, you can be sure they will likely fit your demographic. If you don't have much time, you can use a service such as TagScout to automate this process and start communicating with your intended audience through Likes, remarks, and direct messages.

Contact the Sponsors

If you follow the steps below correctly, you should contact sponsors 8 out of 10 times. This company got in touch with me through my page about fitness clothes. Even though my page had only been up for five months, it had just over 1,000 followers. But it might be better to talk to sponsors directly in similar situations.

This doesn't have to start with a simple message asking for sponsorship. This might look like a last-ditch effort. Here are some things you can do if your ideal sponsor doesn't come to you even though you've worked hard to build a big audience of people who would be interested in them.

If you haven't already, start leaving comments and answering questions below the posts of your ideal sponsor if you haven't already. If your ideal sponsor sells things, buy one, discuss the incident on social media, and tag the sponsor in the post. You can move up to DMs when you have done enough of these duties.

One instance of an explicit message you could send to your potential sponsor is as follows:

  • You can send DMs to each potential sponsor separately, of course.
  • Still, you can save time and energy by using a forum like TagScout to send thousands of DMs daily automatically.

When these sponsors look at your page, they'll see the following:

  • You give them content related to their brand; their followers are a great fit for their target audience.
  • You've already bought their products and said nice things about them, which makes it easier for them to support you.


Even though the above tips won't turn your Instagram page into a money-making machine overnight, they will allow you to generate money to post to the platform with time and effort.
