    How to Earn Money on Instagram

    There are a few methods that you can make money using Instagram, and I’m going to cover them in today’s article


    This can be a huge moneymaker if done right. There are a lot of ways you can make it happen. There are accounts in dog/cats niche that sell $100/hr per shoutout, and these accounts have 500k+ followers. You can be put in a waiting list because there are too many people purchasing shoutouts, so they don’t want to lose connections with their followers too.

    For a 100k followers account you can charge $10/hr shoutout. 10 people today that is 100$ day. There are plenty of websites that offer buy/sell shoutouts.

    Here are few:


    This works great for Youtube but can be done with Instagram as well. You need to have a website like your account or similar, and if you have over 30k followers you can easily make 500$ a month with them telling them to click the link in bio for your article that has Google Adsense on it. This can be hard work but can be done. Letting your followers know to click on the link in bio in the caption and you have can have great success driving 500 people daily on a post.


    I have had a lot of success doing this back in the early days when not a lot of people were doing this. Started with Fileice then transferred with CPAGrip and OGads for mobile traffic. I’ve made posts regarding this, you can read my CPAGrip review here and you can read my OGAds review here if you decide to give them a go. This is a really good method to make money, especially with Instagram there a lot of people that do this and make a bank. You can ask your followers to complete an offer like email submit or install a game app and in reward, you can give them an ebook something like how to teach their dog to not bark.

    Usually, there are low payout offers (email submit or installing a game) somewhere around 0.50-1.50$ per install, but if 100 followers of your account want to teach the dog to not bark, boom you made 100$. There are also other offers like pin-submit that work really well and these are high paying offers for some countries like France, Belgium, Swiss, Germany and so on. On these offers, you can make 10-30$ if your visitor completes an offer.

    Also, I need to mention, Instagram and Facebook don’t love this kind of offers so always use a website and telling your followers to click here or have a button that will redirect them to the offer. Your account may be in danger if you use to redirect them directly to the offer.

    Affiliate Marketing

    This can be done similarly like CPA, have a website or Weebly site that you can use to redirect to the offer. You can find plenty of affiliate offers on ClickBank, you can make a video review on some product and upload on Instagram and let your followers click the link in bio to check it out!

    Sell Products

    One of my favorites. Having a niche website with hungry traffic is the best. I have a Shopify store made and I have an Instagram account with over 100k+ followers that grows daily. I post the product video or image on my Instagram and let my followers go to the link in the bio to purchase it after they purchase it I order the product from AliExpress and send it to their address. Works like a charm. You need 5 people to purchase to 15$ product, you order it from AliExpress for 2$, and that day you made 65$ in profits.

    I have had made an article on how to make money with Shopify, you can read it here.


    You can become an influencer by joining Snap Fluance. This is a service that will connect you to a brand. This is for bigger Instagram accounts with a bigger following. Mobile Media Lab is another service that can connect you with brands, I’ve seen a claim that if you have over 200k followers you can potentially make up to $7000 month.

    Valuable username

    If you have brandable or highly valuable username someone might contact you and offers to buy it. There are plenty of people that make usernames like that and hold on them and sell them later on for a few thousand dollars.


    There are phenomenal tips on how to start making money on Instagram, if you already have a following and never done anything to monetize it, there are ways above that you can use and scale it and make a great income for yourself. Can be a huge moneymaker if you have a large following, selling shoutouts is maybe one of the best ways for a large following, I’m already building 100s of Instagram Accounts.
