As of January 2020 Instagram has 500 million active daily users. That’s the 3rd largest platform in the world. Not counting chat apps. I’m going to show you how I make money on Instagram with only 100 followers.
The best place to make money online is through social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. Why? All the free traffic!
Just like a cars salesman, if you get a bad a vibe or they seem too pushy you are going to walk. It will likely leave a bad taste in your mouth as well. The same is true with selling on social media. You need to get people to know, like and trust you and sell with out selling.
How I Make Money on Instagram
Here’s the truth; you actually don’t need an Instagram profile at all. If you have one with a large following that’s great. However, if you are just starting out, the best way to make money on Instagram is by contacting Instagram influencers.
Instagram Influencers typically leave their email in their profile to do business. If not, you can always direct message them. It’s best to stick in the 100,000 follower range. That is where you’ll likely get a good deal to promote your product or service.
An influencer with 500,000 will likely charge a lot more.
How To Find Influencers
To find an influencer in your niche check relevant hash tags that relate. It’s important to find a profile that has great engagement. Not just likes but comments as well.
The influencer will post your advertisement on their story for 24 hours. Payment is negotiable, but a good start is between $0.50-$1.00 per swipe up. If someone actually swipes up that just proves they are a warm lead that is interested in your offer.
If your offer is taking them to an affiliate product it is important to not take them directly to your affiliate link. This is crucial for a couple reasons. One Instagram is not a huge fan of affiliate links. Two, that warm lead may not be ready to buy.
This is where a bridge page comes in. This is a one page website that collects email addresses. Having the email is vital to promoting future offers and closing the sale on the initial offer. If you don’t have a bridge page, no worries. Builderall has them for free along with email marketing. See an example bridge page HERE.
If you don’t have an offer to promote, a good place to start is Click Bank. It is free to join and there is no requirements. I suggest finding a low ticket product that has higher ticket up-sells. Someone on Instagram is more likely to purchase a $10 item as opposed to a $50 item. This is why getting their email is imperative. The money is in the list and the follow up.
