A typical influencer post includes the creation of content (Instagram post or an Instagram story) that will include the promotion of the brand or their products. As an influencer, that’s why it is very important for you to know your audience.

This is also a way to earn money. In a survey of 5,000 influencers, around 40% said they charged $200 to $400 per post.

As we all know that Instagram is what for? For (posting mainly) photos. If you take HD-quality photos, then there is a chance that people may be willing to pay for your best images. Think about how many people do willingly purchase images online.

To a large extent, this totally depends on your photography skills. The more you work on these, along with editing and composition, the greater the chance that you will be able to earn some money from your images.

Your photos will look good when your photos aren’t in the shape of a square. Post photos in horizontal or vertical. You can also promote your photography portfolio on Instagram using suitable hashtags.

Sell your Instagram account:

As I also mention earlier that a huge follower base is really very important for you. It takes a lot of time, patience and hard-working. You can sell your Instagram account to those who are impatience, lazy and have no time to build a follower base on their own. If you are selling an account which has followers in million then you will get a really huge amount of money, but getting a follower in million is not a baby’s game.

You can also provide your YouTube channel link or your YouTube video to your Instagram bio, so that your Instagram audience can also become your YouTube audience by subscribing and watching your YouTube video. In this, you can also earn from Instagram and many successful YouTubers are using the reverse process i.e. at first getting an audience on YouTube, and then getting audiences on Instagram.
