Can You Make Money On Instagram?

Absolutely, it is possible to earn money on Instagram since, according to CBInsights, it is one of the best venues for influencers and content creators to monetize their work and gain new followers.

The platform also makes an effort to assist creators in making money from their influence there.

According to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, paid online events, fan memberships, badges, and planned independent news products remained free for creators until 2023 in order to assist more creators in making a life on their platforms.

How Much Money Can You Make on Instagram?

The majority of the time, your Instagram following determines how much money you can make. For instance, if you want to make money on Instagram by becoming a social media influencer, you’ll need at least 1,000 followers.

But, your following count is less important to your ability to make money if you want to create an Instagram shop.

The second aspect of making money on social media is based on different engagement metrics on your social media platform. Divide the number of likes and comments received for every post by the total number of followers you have to determine your engagement rate.

Ideally, it would be best to have a 3% engagement rate when requesting brand sponsorship.

Prioritize developing an engaged group over growing a sizable, inactive following because businesses prefer you to have a highly engaged audience over those.

How Much Do Nano Influencers Make?

The typical Instagram user, or nano-influencer, has between 1000 and 10,000 followers.

This tier frequently focuses on a certain niche and has an established and active community. As a nano-influencer, you need to maintain building your follower base in order to enhance your Instagram revenue.

According to Plato, the typical Instagram nano-influencer can charge up to $88 for each post. This implies that as your account expands, there is a chance for you to make even more.

How Much Do Micro Influencers Make?

Micro-Influencers are mostly users who have 10,000–50,000 followers.

A micro-influencer can earn $114 for each video post and $43 per Instagram story, according to research by Search Engine Journal.

How Much Do Macro Influencers Make?

According to Influencer Marketing Hub, Macro Influencers have 500,000-1,000,000 followers on Instagram.

Because of their huge following and engagement rate, they can charge anywhere between $5000 – $10,000 per post.

How Much Do Mega Influencers Make?

But, influencers who have millions of followers can receive $10,000 for each post. Mega influencers have an annual income range of a few hundred thousand to several million dollars.

Kylie Jenner, for instance, apparently gets paid $1 million for each Instagram post. Because of this, if an influencer does well, they commonly earn six figures or more annually.

How Many Followers Do You Need on Instagram to Make Money?

This is a tricky question to answer, mainly since there isn’t a set rule specifying how many subscribers your Instagram account needs to have to generate income from it.

Several Instagram monetization services, such as “Badges,” Instagram’s tipping option for IG Live, demand that producers have at least 10,000 followers.

However, many of these programs have a minimum age requirement of 18, are prohibited in certain international locations, and demand that users register their accounts as businesses or creators on the app.

The amount of money you make from sponsored posts, affiliate links, and product sales depends on your specialty, the volume of engagements you can produce, and your negotiating skills with potential sponsors.
