Can you Make money from Instagram?
Many people are still wondering how this dude can make money from Instagram. Unfortunately, many of us still think that Instagram is only for fun and timepass only, but let me clarify something, people are making thousands of dollars every month from Instagram only.
Celebrities, Instagram models, and other social media Influencers print their money from platforms like Instagram and there are many ways to make money from Instagram.
Some of the most followed celebrities like Ronaldo, Virat Kohli, and Messi The Rock make more than millions per post on Instagram.
Instagram was not paying anything to the creators, but since they launched the reel feature, they started paying influencers from the creator fund.
Instagram is pushing reel very hard to compete with other short video-creating platforms like YouTube shorts and TikTok, so Instagram is encouraging influencers to create more and more videos so they can grab more and more audience on their platform.
Their creator fund program pays creators regularly based on their reach and engagements, the more views your reels get the more money you can make, still they are not paying as much as long-form videos, not even close.
On the other hand, creating short videos is much easier than long-form videos. you can pick any trading topic and create a short video in less than 5 minutes. There are also high chances of your reel getting viral which gives a high boost to the account growth and audience reach.
The secondary way of making money on Instagram is through paid promotions, once you have a decent number of followers you can start promoting brands and people on your account, it can be Instagram stories, posts, and story mentions.
You can start an Instagram account with a selected niche and grow it, start to accept promotions, an average account with followers 100k-200k can make $100-300 per promotion, it also depends on your niche certain categories have higher promotional rates than other categories like clothing, Business, and Beauty products have high promotion rates.
To get promotions you can directly message the brands or to get more professional, create a template and e-mail them, if they are interested they will contact you. don’t get upset when you don’t get the reply emails, this process takes time. you can also hire someone to do this task and pay him some commission.
This is the easiest way to make money on Instagram. But there is a problem with this method, getting promotions is really hard when you don’t have a decent amount of followers and account engagement.
