Whether you’re a celebrity, an influencer or just some average guy like me with highly engaged Instagram followers, you could be making an easy six figure incomes simply by posting photos of a subject you are passionate about to Instagram in your spare time.  You’re already spending several hours a day on Instagram. Why not turn your play time into money making time?

You might have recently read that Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne, and Gigi Hadid, are currently valued between $125,000 and $300,000 for a single Instagram Post. Other models such as Karlie Kloss, Behati Prinsloo, and Miranda Kerr can earn between $25,000 to $50,000 for a single post across their social media feeds according to D’Marie Archive, who has created an algorithm using 56 metrics to create valuations based on the social power of a model or influencer.


Looking at the various social network followers of these Top Influencers above it’s apparent that most of this valuation is derived from their Instagram following, given Facebook & Twitter Followers pale in comparison to their still exploding Instagram profiles.

While the potential to compete and earn five to six Figures PER POST is definitely easier when you have celebrity status, it’s not impossible to go from an unknown to Insta-Famous and make upwards of six to seven figures. It’s all so simple, people like Kayla Itsines, Laci Kay SomersAmanda Lee & Alexa Jean Brown were all individuals who were more or less unknown before Instagram and are now making millions even with a quarter of the engagement and followers of celebrities. Each of them have leveraged their motivational fitness, glamour or post pregnancy body transformations into self-promotional careers by incorporating sports and nutrition brands in their photos.

You are probably asking how? Well it is just as simple as it seems, just share high quality photos and express your love for something you feel passionate about to audiences that can relate and are willing to learn. You do not have to be famous or beautiful to gain a following and make money on Instagram; just don’t expect it to happen overnight. Social media is a long game that requires a little patience. With every post, week, month and year your personal brand has the opportunity to percolate and resonate with like minded or interested followers.


If you are personally representing yourself on Instagram and have grown a large following you might want to look into various Influencer Marketing Communities for inspiration, photography ideas and see how much others are commanding for their posts.  These communities allow you to list your personal Instagram profile in various verticals where major brands shop for Influencers to work with to promote their brands!


You don’t need to have millions of followers to become an Influencer Marketer on Instagram, just a nice following with great engagement.  I have seen people with 10,000 followers make over $100 per post to promote new shoes, clothing and alcohol! Checkout,, and to name a few of the top communities helping Influencers to connect with brands and make money.


I am not a celebrity, musician or individual influencer. During the last 2 years I have posted over 10,000 photos on Instagram and as a result know what works and doesn’t work.  In less than 2 years I’ve gone from 1 account with 700 followers to more than 28 accounts commanding 14+ million engaged followers in the Automotive niche. My network of self grown accounts is growing at over 1 million follower per month and I’ve been making a healthy 6 figure income for over a year. Life is pretty sweet when you get paid to post photos of your passions or hobbies to Instagram in your spare time from anywhere in the world.

Anyone can leverage their passions, hobbies and knowledge like I have and create one or more Instagram fan pages for their favourite brands (in any niche), grow followers organically and earn money following my simple step-by-step instructions.

The formula is simple. Create an Instagram account, post killer high quality unique content (content is still king), utilize my simple step-by-step strategies to attract new engaged followers, then sell advertising, shout outs or products (yours or other peoples).


Checkout @hangtensports brand new Instagram account created by one of my latest students following nothing more than my FREE . In a little over 2 weeks the account has almost hit 10,000 followers with less than 20 photos posted. You might even recognize some of the photos from the Explore/Discovery page of Instagram. Scroll through the photos, read the comments, checkout who liked the photos, all real people without any “fake followers”.  This student manually curated and posted these vibrant action shots from accounts that he follows out of his own interest. He did not use a “bot” program to follow/unfollow or comment on others accounts (as you can see he only follows 100 some people).  The engagements on his recent photos are insane (some 50%-70% of his following) because he leveraged several of my simple strategies which I outline in my FREE 20 Page Instagram Guide which walks you through all the basic principles and concepts of Instagram!
