by Kanika Ahuja Digital Marketer
Instagram is a social media platform owned by Facebook, Inc. It was launched in October 2010 exclusively on iOS and created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger,. It is one of the most popular ways of making connection among youth.

How do People Earn Money through Instagram?

Instagram is one of the profitable social media platform right now! If you aren’t taking advantage of Instagram to build your business, then you are not a good Digital Marketer.

At Digital Technology Institute - Best Institute for Digital Marketing in Delhi provides various ways to monetize your account (the only thing you need is your creativity).


The Easiest way to monetize your Instagram account is by receiving money from PayPal in exchange for advertising. We call these shoutouts.

Affiliate Marketing:

Promoting someone else’s offer. Click bank or Maxbounty are some of the big Affiliate Marketing channels to get promotions. As the middle man, you get a cut of the sale. **You must direct user to a landing page as Instagram doesn’t like it when your link takes someone to an affiliate offer**.

Lead Generation:

“The money is in the list”. If you have someone’s email, that means you can contact them again & again and try to sell them whatever you like (physical products, affiliate offers, software, etc). Usually, back-end selling works best with this which means you offer value to them and building trust as upfront selling seems to be rather ineffective compared to back-end selling on social media.


Influencer marketing is a Million Dollar business on instagram. Nearly 52% of pictures are of products on insta too. There is no any doubt that selling physical products is VERY profitable on Instagram. Literally, Instagram (& Facebook) are responsible for building the Shopify/drop shipping boom to what it is today.

Growth Packages/ Instagram Consulting:

Have a big account? People want to know how, and they will pay your for it! And a lot of money at that! If you all want to know about my opinion then I would say Instagram consulting for businesses and brands is the most profitable way to monetize Instagram.

Brand Deals:

Instagramr with huge following can be sponsored and paid by Brands to promote their products.

Flipping Accounts:

The average 100,000 follower account can go for between $1,000 - $5,000 depending on the activity of the page, niche, and other factors. Even now, there are many people who don’t know what these pages are worth, so you have a lot of sharks going out there and targeting foreigners who don’t know what their accounts are worth. Buy on the low, sell on the high!


Instagram is a platform which is like and used by various celebrity also. The plus point of Instagram is that it is mobile friendly. It is not just a medium anymore to connect with somebody, it is more than that.
