That the social network of Instagram is in fashion is something that does not surprise anyone. Moreover, we would dare to say that it is fashionable since its creation back in 2010 becoming the fastest growing social network reaching the incredible number of 500 million active users per month.
WHAT IS INSTRAGRAM?
Social photography network created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in 2010 for 1 billion dollars and bought by Facebook in 2012.
It allows its users to upload images and videos with multiple photographic effects such as filters, gifs, etc. to later share those images on the same platform or on other social networks with all your followers.
HOW CAN I EARN MONEY WITH INSTAGRAM?
To start earning followers and, with that, start monetizing, it is essential to have one that falls in love. Although it seems logical there are still many profiles that have their data unfilled or that neglect their profile picture. Choose a good description that defines you or your business. Includes links and, if you are a company, convert your profile to company to get more benefit.
- Share quality images
I know it may be obvious but … My Mother, the photos that some people hang! Photographs are the soul of this social network so you’ll have to work if you want to succeed.

3. Use hashtags
Use hasgtags to reach not only more people but also more target audiences.
4.Invest in advertising
The price of advertising on Instagram is cheaper than many people think. The CPC ranges between 0.05 and 0.15 cents so it will be much cheaper to advertise here than in other networks known as Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.
Instagram Stories are short videos that disappear within 24 hours of their publication. Why can this be beneficial for your monetary strategy? Because when editing your Instagram Stories you can put both “location stories” and “hashtag stories”. That is, geolocalize your business, very important especially in local businesses, and put the so used in all social networks, hashtags.
6. Include links
Did you know that links can be included in the photos? Yes, but only if you reach a certain number of followers … Nothing more and nothing less than … 10,000 !!
