Blogging necessarily costs some money. In some cases a very good amount and in some cases a few dollars, but when you take a look in social media sites like Facebook, Tumblr, Linkedin, Pinterest, and all other microblogging sites people are making lots of money even in 6-7 figures using them without spending a single penny, Cuz they are absolutely free to use.

So, the question is,  how people are making that huge amount of money by using these sites?

Now, on all social media sites, you can communicate and convince people to take action on your given links that's where the money comes. ( like I did this post you can see several links in it)
But on Instagram, we can only use just one single link in our profile bio, not in our posts and that makes Instagram really insane to do blogging on it.

Starting a blog on Instagram definitely has perks. You don't need to create and manage a website, you don't need to buy hosting and domain, or creating lengthy content.

But there are some downsides to starting a blog on Instagram. You cannot use google analytics or any other detailed analytics, you just have Instagram Insights which not that much detailed than any other analytic out there.

In order to start a blog on Instagram, we have some basic requirements. First, we have to decide our aim from this and income streams. how we're gonna make money from the blog? and then how we're gonna do that all stuff simply.

Making Money From Blog

I'm not talking about a WordPress blog, I'm talking about the Instagram blog. How you can monetize your Instagram blog?

Monetization is a must. In our normal websites and blogs, we have different options to monetize it. We have Adsense, we have Affiliate marketing options, we have Sponsored Posts, Selling, Promoting, and all other stuff.

But with the Instagram blog, we have a few options depending on your niche. Here I'm giving you some money-making sources that normal people use on the Instagram blog. You can choose the suitable one for your blog.
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Sponsorships
  • Selling your own products (digital or physical)
  • Paid posts
Okay, now let's start our main topic step by step

Step 1. Set-Up Your Instagram Business Account

Definitely, the First step you have to sign up and set up your Instagram business account. 
First of all, go to Instagram.com or download the Instagram app on your smartphone. Complete all signup processes, choose your user name related to your brand or your targeted keyword or simply choose a name for your blog.

Once you have your Instagram account, now it’s time to switch over to a business account. Having an Instagram business account has many benefits that we will talk about here.

Switching your account into a business profile requires a Facebook page, If you haven't created a Facebook business page then first you have to set-up a Facebook page.

To start, head over to your profile and click on the gear icon to access your account settings.

Congratulations! your business profile is now created successfully.

Step 2. Decide Your Niche

So, the next step is all about choosing your niche, What are you're going to make content around.

Do what you are passionate about. Write about what you know. These are the most common advice that we often get from experts. But unfortunately, it's not enough. You have to find something better and profitable to start it.

If you have chosen a niche with too much competition, Your blog will get beaten down by high authority websites. You can survive if you are extremely lucky, but if you have decided to blog on a smaller niche that has no demand, your blog will barely make an impact.

You must have to balance these all things. You have to balance profitability, competition, demand, and your own skills or interests only then you can make a blog around that niche.

In order to find your blogging niche, you have to focus on these things first.


  • Pick a topic that you enjoy talking about. (what's that something, when you start talking about it feels great to you and you don't wanna stop that conversation)
  • Make sure it's profitable. 
  • Try to find a niche that has less competition

Step 3. Set-up Your Bio and Profile Picture

You have an Instagram Business profile and you have your niche to start now is the third step to set-up your profile pic and your Bio.

The first thing is your profile picture, your profile picture must tell something about you or about your niche. It must represent your profile content. If you have a personal brand, Consultant business, One-on-one business or a service or freelance business then Human faces work very well for you.
But if you have another brand then you can use your logo but your logo must be very friendly in circle cropping.

If you have a high verticle logo then you must have to redesign it in a circle image. You can make any logo design for your profile but your profile picture theme must describe your account content.

After adding a profile picture to your account now you have to add your bio. Your Instagram bio is your most important part, it's your website, it's your call to action, it's your money-making place. You can't let it common. you have to stand out from any other account in your competition and you have to add a compelling bio so people can't stop themselves to click on your call to action.

In your bio section, you must add your professions and if you have any other big social following also highlight it, or simply tell something about your brand. What your brand does? or what your brand is about. (you can also add your targeted keywords in your bio section) Then at the ending add a call to action and also a link to your landing page or any other place where you want your audience to go and you generate income or lead.

Step 4. Use Instagram Stories, Featured Stories And live Streams to Grow Your Audience

Never stop growing. Take advantage of every single feature that Instagram gives you. Instagram has lots of features like stories, live, Ig TV, Featured Stories and many other features. Everyone has their own benefit and limitation. but overall every feature out there is to help you to reach more people.

Stories

Instagram stories are kinda fun. With Instagram stories, you can't just share your content with your followers now you can share your content with a large audience who are watching Instagram stories.

Make sure to use Instagram stories constantly. It will help you to grow your reach.

IGTV

First, I want to highlight some IGTV features then we talk about what types of benefits we can achieve from this.

Your brand, Business or blog will be more popular with IGTV and I think this place is so important for small bloggers and businesses because it gives you a great opportunity to get the countless response from internet users.

IGTV is a great way to create longer versions of Instagram stories and you can create longer videos but there isn't an expectation that the videos are as polished and professional as people expect from YouTube. Instagram is definitely trending and you can use IGTV  for these purposes.


  • Behind The Scenes video content (setting up or attending an event, working in the garden, shopping for an upcoming new recipe, waiting at the airport for travel, etc... depending on your niche of blog/business)
  • Daily check-in updates
  • Talk about progress on a goal or task 
  • Answer FAQs and QnAs

Live

Personally, I love Instagram live and also use this weekly basis. You can go live on Instagram for up to an hour. Not just that you can even host an Instagram live and bring on a guest, and when you do, your guest's audience gets a notification that they joined your live stream.

Consistently doing an Instagram live show will help you to grow your audience read quickly.

Hash Tags

Take a look at what hashtags are currently being used by your competition, personal profiles, or personal inspiration and quickly get an idea to generate better hashtags.

Create a list of what hashtags they're using in their photos. And go further into what other influencers in your industry are hashtagging.

Most social media platforms allow hashtag searching, like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook can provide the most popular and relatable hashtags to check out. In this way, you can be found for certain tags and you can take advantage of it.

Step 5. Help and Collaborate

Be there for helping others to improve and gain something valuable, not just be there for promoting stuff. Help others to journies and problems, make them feel great. And off course they will appreciate your effort and they will promote you to their following.

Find some accounts related to your brand and reach them. Influence, engage with them, and whenever it's possible, collaborate with them.
