Instagram is the most used Social Media in 2019, the simplicity of the App just makes it everyone’s Favourite.
Making Money Online has always been something that almost everyone would like to try out, and it can be done on Instagram.
Yes, there are people out there who make over 6-Figures in income through Instagram with their secret marketing techniques.
Also, just a reminder to follow me @thepriyamraj on Instagram for some Money Making advises.
Here are 5 secret ways to make money on today’s most popular Social Media Platform, Instagram.
BuyMeACoffee.com is a website through which you can receive donations from your Followers/Fans/Supporters in a Special Way
People can buy a specific amount of Coffees for you which can be priced by you ($1-$5 per coffee)
There are two ways you can earn through this Website:
- Signing up to the website and sharing your Support URL
- Locking a content with a “CoffeeLink” and then asking people to buy you a Coffee for unlocking the content.
The 2nd way is useful if you sell digital things (like eBooks) online.
Signing up on this website does not require any verification or approval, it’s Instant for everyone.
You’ll need a PayPal Account to receive the Donations.
You can sign up, create a link and then put it on your Instagram Bio.
2. Promoting Other People’s Content
Promoting on Instagram on any other social media is the most common way of earning through your Page.
The only downside to this method is that you’ll need followers, maybe even a lot of them.
After that, write something like “DM for Paid Promos” on your Bio.
You can charge people anywhere around $3 to $50 per post/story depending on your audience size.
Also, you must have seen posts with “Paid Partnership with ….” labelled on the top of it
You might get sponsorships if you have a lot of audiences, try contacting brands with email for the same.
3. Reselling Stuff
Reselling or Dropshipping is a whole new topic but I’ll try to make it as simple as possible for you
Basically, you can resell anything from a specific niche if it’s not copyrighted
I’ll try to make it more simple, reselling on Instagram does not require you to have a Website or an Inventory
Let’s say you have a page that is based on Fashion
then, you can go to Aliexpress and find $5 Glasses that look Good and then sell them for $10 on Instagram
It’s legal as long as that specific product is not copyrighted (like Marvel Action Figures)
You can also use Facebook/Instagram Ads for more results.
This method can make the most money if you’re fully focused.
The best advice would be to focus on a specific niche.
Search for YouTube for “Dropshipping with Facebook Ads” if you’re more interested in this method.
4. Selling Artwork
This one is for all my artist friends out there.
If your Instagram page is full of Artworks by you then you can offer people for custom artworks for a specific price.
It could be anything like a Sketch or Logo Design.
5. Paid Courses/eBooks
If you’re good in a specific skill (like SEO), you can make an eBook or a series of videos that teaches that skill.
After that, you can sell it to your audience.
Again, you can use BuyMeACoffee for this.
The only downside to this method is that 90% of the Influencers today are selling Courses and eBooks and people are prone to avoid them
That’s why I’ve written something special in my Bio which definitely gets some attention.
