Then a few days ago as we talked on the phone she says "Hey Dad, I've got 25,000 followers on instagram now" ... Say WHAT? 25,000?
I'm not quite sure how she did it. She explained that over a fairly short period of time she had 2,000 followers. Then 3,000, then 4,000. And somewhere in there people started sending her messages asking her if they could send her free samples of their shirts, pants, etc and if she liked them would she wear them and mention them on her posts.
She did. Like I said, now she has over 25,000 subscribers. So she was asking me "Can I actually make money from this somehow?"
Knowing her Dad is a "marketing guy", a "computer" guy and he used to buy and sell real estate, she was expecting no-less than a brilliant answer from me on this.
My answer was "I don't have a clue (yes, she looked very surprised at that answer) ... so I continued "but I'll find out".
I really don't know anything at all about instagram (I should, yes). My 1st thoughts were that she might want to create a facebook page and a youtube channel to refer all those followers because I believe she could make money there. But again, I admit I am totally clueless about instagram.
