3. SELL YOUR OWN PHOTOS OR SELL YOUR PHOTOS ON THINGS:
Someone might get famous on Twitter by telling 140-character jokes, but Instagram is a photo-sharing app at its core. And photos are assets that can be licensed, printed, and sold in a variety of ways.
If photography is what got you into the Instagram game in the first place, you can list your photos in marketplaces where brands and publishers might license them or you can print your logo or favourite saying on things. Services like;
However, you can also sell your photos as prints and on other physical products using a similar methods described in the last section.

you can also sell the photos that you take, or sell your brand or photos on things.
4. BECOME A BRAND AMBASSADOR:
One of the most profitable methods of making money on Instagram is to become a brand ambassador – or as the industry calls them Instagram “influencers”.
As a brand ambassador, you simply team up with companies to promote brands and products through your Instagram posts, hashtags, and captions. You can reach out to brands you like and want to work with directly.
But an easier option is to apply to some networks that bring influencers and brands together.
Fortunately, there are plenty of them, including:
In order to become a brand ambassador, you need to have a big following, which companies want to leverage.
For example, if you want to join SocialGlory, you must have at least 5,000 followers.
And, to join InstaBrand, you must have at least 10,000 followers and over 1,000 likes per post.
The amount brands are willing to pay varies. Some will pay you a flat fee per post, some will pay you for likes, and others will just send you free stuff to promote. It’s estimated that brands spend more than $1 billion dollars on sponsoring content on Instagram.
Becoming a brand influencer is pretty tough – you must have at least 5,000 to 10,000 followers. And, your posts must get around, on average 1,000 likes.
3.START SELLING ON YOUR OWN STORE:
In terms of time investment, this tactic requires the most by far.
However, this can also net you the biggest returns.
Here’s the basic process that you’ll follow for this tactic.
- Open an online store
- Create an Instagram account that’s built around your niche
- Feature your products on your Instagram account

you can create your store using this site:
Here’s what I love about the Internet.
It’s created an immense amount of opportunities for those who are clever enough to use the right resources to their advantage.
For instance, there are on-demand printing companies like Zazzle that allow you to design and sell your own clothing, hats, bags, stickers, etc. with absolutely no investment and zero overhead costs.
