How my Girlfriend made $74.70 (£60) on Instagram yesterday

Hey Forum Fam,

I thought I would share a quick case study for you that you may be able to tweak and do your own version of to make some extra cash during quarantine.

So this strategy is something my girlfriend and I tested the other day and it worked pretty well so we are going to roll it out more regularly and scale it.

We did this in the beauty niche but it can work in almost any market if you figure out an angle.

The strategy is VERY simple. What we did was create a paid Instagram live.

We came up with a topic to teach that we knew her audience would like and charged them £10 to get access to the 1 hour Instagram Live.

For those that paid we created a new private Instagram account and added them to it then hosted the live and delivered what we promised on that account.

I recorded the hour long live so that we can sell the content later.

We then deleted everyone from that account and will repeat the process again when they pay for the next class.

We did this on a very small personal account but now that we have proved that the concept works we will do it on a bigger account that we own.

If you're creative you could partner with an account that has your target audience, reach out to people one by one, pay to advertise in other accounts stories etc.

The possibilities are endless.

I hope this gets your creative juices flowing, let me know what you think and if you have any questions.

Stay Rebellious,

Jouvan Johnson

    so much work for little money, building profile + making promotion + 1 hour live + preparation before the live +++++ so not worth it on my humble view point (unless you stay in a country where money don`t worth a lot) ...

      That is your opinion but as I said this was tested on a small account, we have an account of almost 100,000 engaged real followers to roll it out on, this was an idea to get people thinking and could work for people who already have an Instagram following (or those who are creative and partner with already established accounts).

      If it's not for you, post something that may help others and keep it moving lol.

      This will easily be an extra $1000+ per month for about 2 hours work a week.

      In my humble and accurate opinion that is worth it. For us anyway, as an extra income in addition to the other things we already do.

    Hmm... paid live on IG and Facebook. That's something Mark can easily implement and cash on.

    If this thing gets more people to practice it, it could become a thing.

    Let us know how it worked on the big account!

      Yeah I thought about it working on Facebook too in private groups. You could contact multiple group owners in your niche and give them all an affiliate link to promote you live event, they make 50% of everything and you don't even have to have an audience to start, all you need is the content.

      I may actually do this!

  • Some folks don't even make a dollar online for their promotional efforts. Well done to you and your lady Mr. Johnson.

    I enjoy reading about successful case studies. Yours is quite similar to inviting your audience to a paid webinar or podcast. You just capitalizing on much trendier platforms.

    You could also host your recording of your live on YouTube, keep the video private, then only once you prospects pay you, you send them the video link via a password protected blogger platform. I've seen the lazy coach use a similar funnel.

      This is very similar to what we plan to do. We recorded the Live and are going to upload it to Gumroad (Give access to those that were on live) and sell the recording at a higher price to those that didn't purchase the live event.

    Well. I have to admit that it is a very good way to make money. I had no idea that I could use instagram to make such money. I willl give it a try. Thanks for sharing. The oroblem wuth instagram is that there are not a lot of people in it. The peiple tha are there depend on specific things of which in most cases it is usually about betering their looks if I am not worng. It may not be as successful for me because I have no expertise in that area. How about you try a gaming version and tell us how it went. I can definetly do that kind. Facebook also has the adsnse now and epople get paid when users watch their videos. It is certainly much easirer on facebooik than instagram.
