Instagram just announced a NEW shopping feature it is currently testing! Instagram has been on fire with new features this month which I continue to test and explore while highlighting how these new features will generate more money for my Wolf Millionaire students and I.
This NEW Instagram shopping feature will allow business accounts to sell their products with simple in image 1 click pop ups that lead their followers to their e-commerce checkout page. Finally! This is yet another killer feature that highlights how powerful of a money making Social Network Instagram over it’s closest competition SnapChat, if you even consider SnapChat to be a true competitor which it is not. This new feature has me extremely excited about the direction that Instagram is heading, and all I continue to see is more money opportunities for Influencers, Brands & users with large Instagram followers (fan pages, niche pages and personal pages!)

November has been a super hot month for Instagram who also just introduced Instagram Stories Mentions which is a serious game changer for making even more money with Instagram. Just when many people thought that because Instagram was changing their algorithm and handing out less likes and daily follower growth…. BAM…. they slam us with some new features that will only continue to help those following my strategies make more money!

Instagram is currently testing their exciting new shopping feature with 20 select retail brands who can now post images to their Instagram feed and provide real time in image clickable links that users can click to directly purchase their products. Users will now see a clickable “Tap To View Products” that a business can now set which has information about any products and allows users to click through to a retailers website to purchase an item.
This new Instagram shopping feature (Instagram Business Blog Post) will allow existing users to shop for products directly from retailers Instagram posts! Instagram product marketing with influencers is already an extremely large money making marketplace which has built up it’s own community of influencers and content makers. Instagram is now trying to finally facilitate connecting retail brands to sell their products even easier to Instagram users. There is no doubt that once Instagram sees the success of this shopping feature, that they will roll this out to everyone with an Instagram Business Account!
This just spells WIN WIN WIN for anyone in any niche selling anything! I AM PUMPED!
Starting next week, 20 selected big retail partners will be able to fully test out this brand new feature. These retail brands— including Warby Parker, J.Crew, and Levi’s to name a few. This new feature will only be available in the US first.
The new feature will overlay a “Tap Here To View Products” call-to-action button on the product photos posted by the retail brands.
When users tap on the Instagram shopping picture that has products, they will be shown the names of the products and their prices. It is very similar to have current users tap to see which individuals are tagged in your beautiful Family, Vacation or Christmas office photos. However with this new feature you will be able to click through to purchase the products without having to leave Instagram!
“The Instagram Shopping feature makes Instagram better for people because when you get inspired, it’s not a satisfying experience if you can’t take action and learn and explore further. It brings more depth and experience to what they are doing on the platform,” Squires said. INCREDIBLE!
For the time being, the retailers who are trialling this feature is not expected to pay to use this feature, however Instagram is adding an advertising element to it. Especially to induce retailers to push their product photos to users who are not following their accounts.
Other features may come in the future that may include a “save product for later” function and the new services will later expand to more brands in more geographies.
Instagram said they are not going to be taking an affiliate fee from sales of products just yet (keyword is “yet”).
Instagram Shopping Feature: Make More Money
I can totally see them opening this up so that ALL Instagram users like my students and myself can take advantage of Affiliate Marketing for selling clothes, books, toys, car parts…!! Can you imagine if I can post pictures of all these modified cars, then link in the photo to all the aftermarket parts on the car, or students can link to Amazon Affiliate Marketplace listings that they are posting pictures of… Then have all these Instagram users click through and explore, some buying through your links, and BAM, we am now making a commission on that SALE?!?!? I am going to call it out right here, I think this is something we can expect to see on Instagram in 2017! Just remember you read it here first 🙂
This is where I had always hoped that Instagram would innovate towards because it’s been done with other niche apps but not on a social network with 500+ million users!
The Instagram shopping feature is just one more amazing money making feature for me. You see when I saw this Instagram Money Making Opportunity 2+ years ago, before I started to grow dozens of accounts from my couch, I envisioned all the ways that they could really open up their platform to connect consumers and retailers while making money and rewarding content creators, Influencers and Instagram account owners in every niche stay happy and making money! This Instagram shopping feature was one of them as I was seeing it done with Houzz.com and I thought that an inspirational shopping app for interior design applied to a social network would just be killer!!
Thats why there still so much opportunity to get on Instagram to follow your passions and grow a following using my strategies. You have to honestly trust me that following my strategies to grow your following WILL PAY OFF if you put in the effort and just focus on growing your account for 6-8 months! There is so much opportunity out there, so many niches that haven’t been tapped properly because the people with accounts in those small under developed niches aren’t following my InstaWealth Growth System Strategies!
It’s all slowly coming together, one might almost think that I am the Instagram Oracle, given how many predictions (6 if we are counting) I have made in the last 12 months that have come true with respect to all the changes that Instagram has made so far this year!
MY 6 INSTAGRAM PREDICTIONS SO FAR THIS YEAR!
(that have all come true in the last 10 months….)
1. I predicted Instagram revoking API access from 3rd party apps like CrowdFire/LikestaGram that automated FOLLOW/UNFOLLOW & LIKES/COMMENTS which had been the cornerstone strategy for OTHERS pretending to teach Instagram strategies (LOL)
2. I predicted Instagram Stories functionality while evaluating Snapchat vs Instagram and teaching my students that they should be leveraging their Instagram account to grow their SnapChat accounts in my InstaWealth Growth System.
3. I predicted the Instagram Save Drafts functionality after seeing it being beta tested on one of my accounts (and also provided a valuable save drafts hack/shortcut before it was even released).
4. I predicted FAKE FOLLOWERS & FAKE LIKES on many large Instagram accounts months before Instagram Deletes FRAUD Accounts on September 3rd, 2016. Make sure you check that post out which will show you the proof, some accounts lost 400,000+ followers overnight! I love exposing fake accounts on Instagram as they ALL deserve to be called out for ripping off students and clients with their shady operations.
5. I predicted this major shift in Instagram growth we are experiencing this year. You won’t want to miss how my students and I getting around this major Instagram change. It’s so easy if you follow all my step-by-step instructions!
6. I predicted that Instagram would implement a “BOOST / PROMOTE” function to promote your posts by paying Instagram Directly in my InstaWealth Growth System videos which I launched December 2015!.
NOT BAD right!?!? I guess you can say I know WTF I am talking about when it comes to EVERYTHING INSTAGRAM!
My McLaren Facebook Campus Visit
This summer I also made a special visit to Facebook to tour their campus & meeting some new contacts while in California with my BRAND NEW McLaren that purchased this year, all with the money I make from Instagram. It’s mind blowing to think I lost my job for the first time ever 3 years ago at the age of 35 and today I own a brand new McLaren and a brand new solid gold Rolex all from the money I make on Instagram. If an old guy like me can make money on Instagram, then there are ZERO excuses that you smart younger generations can’t do the same, if NOT OUT DO ME! GET TO WORK IF YOU REALLY WANT IT! JOIN ME!
It was fun to see the massive Facebook campus, not to mention have Facebook “Valet” my car, it was the nicest car in the parking lots next some Porsche 911 Turbos, and a couple Audi R8’s. Facebook campus is locked the F down like Fort Knox, they didn’t exactly like or approve of me snapping photos while driving around, however I couldn’t help to get out in black ops style and snap this “complimentary valet parking” sign at Facebook, it was pretty damn cool 🙂
Bravo Instagram (or should we say Facebook), you’re continue to kill it by innovating Instagram faster than your competition, while providing us with more and more ways to monetize your app! This new Instagram Shopping feature is just incredible and we all can’t really wait until you roll it out for all of us!

What you will see is a bunch of posers acting like they’ve figured out Instagram, made money or are making sick money on Instagram, claiming to be Influencers you’ve never heard of while doing nothing to prove or show they are actually making money. Most of these people have bought their accounts or paid for fake followers along the way to make it look like they have a million followers.
Why is this? It’s because they are trying to sell you someone’s bullshit money making scam and they get paid when a SUCKER buys their “Money Making System”. You’ve seen these URL’s they usually read to the tune of”www.GET-PAID-LIKE+NAME.com”…. LOL…… They are not making $10,000 a week or month as a “side hustle”, using Instagram, all they are doing is trying to sound successful. DON’T FALL FOR IT!
