On every forum I'm a member of there are a few members that are making large amounts (>$20,000) with Instagram. I'm not very active when it comes to social media (neither business wise nor personal), but I do know that it isn't possible to post links in Instagram descriptions. I do however know that it is possible to add links in the "About" section and that some owners get paid through promoted posts (selling on eBay, forums, etc). So my question is, how do these big earners make an income off Instagram? For the record: I'm not asking to get into the business, I'm just extremely curios as I've seen it around so many times.
