Have you heard about Instagram? Chances are, you already have an account there. But, do you know Instagram can be used to make money while working at home?
Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately on the app, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr.
Currently Instagram has 400 million active users a month — which means there’s a huge opportunity to leverage this platform for moneymaking opportunities. The best part is that you can do so while working at home.
How to make money on Instagram while working at home
Instagram can be a great tool to generate an online income while working at home. I have complied a list of companies that compensate Instagram users to promote their products and services.
Hypemarket is a new platform that just came to my attention. What I love about this one is that the brands include a lot of small businesses and Etsy store owners. A lot of the offers here are going to be for free goods only.
Mobile Media Lab has made the connection for some highly successful brand campaigns; Origins, Canon, Tommy Hilfiger. They are specifically looking for those with a large audience over 10,000.
Fashion PR Girl keeps a database of fashion-centric Instagrammers. One thing I really like about this site is that they educate brands on the process and best practices. It can sometimes be a struggle for bloggers and social media influencers when they are approached by a brand wanting to run a campaign but they don’t know how it works, what to expect and what’s needed from them. I’m excited to learn more about this one. You can sign up as an Influencer here.
Hello Society is a large influencer network that has worked with brands like Coach, Hasbro, P&G and more. High quality campaigns here. They are looking for Influencers in fashion, travel, home décor, lifestyle, food, fitness and more. Their main focus is Pinterest, but their campaigns stretch across other platforms as well.
Dash Hudson is a highly regarded Instagram Influence Network. They only accept around 1% of those who apply. They are looking for those with at least 10,000 followers.
Popular Pays currently has gigs available from 125+ brands including Nike, McDonalds, Google, Uber, Jim Beam & more. According to the company, most paid gigs require a minimum following of 5,000 to 10,000. Unfortunately, this one is only available to iOS users.
You should always be on the hunt for your own advertisers. Connect with your favorite brands on Instagram and Twitter. Offer Instagram campaigns in your media kit.
Always to your success!
