    It's possible.

    You need a female profile though, if you catch my drift.

    Some people are earning in Instagram. Since Facebook already owns it, it already has several upgrades and features. If photography is your hobby, you can sell your photos in several approved platforms like Plusgram and Stockphotopants. If you are also selling stuffs that require pictures, you can also post them on Instagram. A lot of online shops post photos of their products like dresses and shoes on Instagram and will provide a link to their Facebook page where people can see other products.

    Well there is one way that i can think.
    Many businesses only think of going on Instagram to start marketing. But they usually don't start because they need a lot of followers. And obviously not many people are on instagram. But if you can get a lot of people on your instagram, you can sell your account to some business. you can offer them ready customers for marketing.

    since you can upload photos on instagram, so you can just make pictures and upload them on instgram. Get as many followers for yourself, which would be helpful for you obviously. but you should also have a facebook page to promote your business. And from facebook you can get your customers to come on instagram aswell.

    I won't go into too much detail but there's a simple method that goes something like this:

    1) Choose a popular niche (fitness/hot chicks/animals etc..)
    2) Acquire A LOT of real followers - this can take time, or if you've got money to spend then you can speed up this process.
    3) Make a website (a simple landing page will do) offering "shout outs" for a price
    4) Let others know about your service via your Instagram Profile, and network with other users wanting shout outs for their accounts.

    You can make some good money by selling shout outs for other peoples Instagram accounts wanting to gain more followers...

    Think of it like Solo Ads

    Second affmack. There's no easy way if you have no followers. The easy way is to go with clickbait. But that's just lame, so try doing it with some authenticity.

    Most of the people that in SOME way earn money from instagram don't earn it directly from the website. For example "jeffstaple" uses instagram to promote his clothing line and shop. Instagram is very much a promotional tool, not so much a money-making one.

    Sure. In case you use it the right way, Instagram can be a great platform for your business promotion. Before you start using Instagram for your biz, make a plan of your promotion activities there. Here are the points to consider:

    1) Get REAL followers. Use hashtags, follow people first, post your Instagram pics in other social networks, make Instagram Web profile, etc. - get as many real fans (who may potentially be interested in your products) as possible.

    2) Note that Instagram is all about life. That's why in order to have an impact and gain a following there, you need to be as authentic as possible. Focus on creating an Instagram profile which brings out emotion in those that view your photos.

    Be original.
    Don't bring just pics of your products. Fill your Instagram board with any interesting stuff that is related to your industry/sphere/niche. Show your followers what is behind the curtains of your company. Etc.

    Look at Instagram as a canvas where you can draw your favorite emotions, your company products, events, etc.

    3) Make your followers feel special and interact with them: 'like' their pics, leave comments on their photos, etc.You can also post a pic with a question to your followers, organize a contest for them, etc..

    These 3 simple tips will help you get more out of Instagram community and use it for boosting your sales.

      This is a very interesting question I have had in mind for a long time. What do you think - is it possible to use Instagram for promoting services that are not "sexy" if you can say so, like financial services?

        That's absolutely yes.
        first of all, make you financial services 'sexy' or 'funny'

      You can definitely make money with instagram!

      You need to have a good amount of followers first though. I reccomend using a social exchange site like likes2.me (I made this site) or others like addmefast.com.

      Next, once you have about 10k or more followers (50k to 100k would be ideal, but may take some time) you should start selling gigs on fiverr.com. These gigs could be a shoutout to someone who purchased your gig. You could also provide a contact email in your description on instagram for business owners to contact you, so you can make a business deal, selling shout outs.

      Hope this helped

    Instagram is also powerful social media website, you make earn only by sharing your services products to others and get visitors to make money.

      Not exactly, ppl don't want to connect with products, they're looking to interact, have fun and see real people doing interesting things. That's way cool photos are so popular

    You can earn money on Instagram if you are selling goods such as clothes, shoes, accessories or make-ups. I saw a lot of online sellers are using that social media account to target their prospect consumer.

    Instagram is popular and many people are using it. That's why for some businesses (especially the small ones) they use it as an alternative. Sunglasses, weight loss products, dress, shoes, swimsuits etc. are the perfect example of products that can sell through instagram.

    In my opinion, trafic equals money.

    If you instagram account has many trafic (fans), you can simple make money by embed the advertise in you post.
    Am I right?
