    Okay, here's the deal: I don't have my own website, I don't have my own products, and I'm not affiliated with any programs that use pay-per-click or whatever the acronyms may be.


    Right now, I have 16.5 active Instagram followers in a basketball niche. I get anywhere from 1k-2.5k likes per picture and around 50-150 comments. I usually gain anywhere from 500-1500 followers per week so my audience is always growing.


    I put an adf (dot) ly link in the bio to see how many clicks it would get in 24 hours; It got 86.
    So my question is this: What type of link can I put in my bio in order to make money off my Instagram account? What affiliate programs do you know of? Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Thanks for the read.

    Well im guessing it would have to be something related to basketball ... So you could ether just share some amazon products ( not sure if amazon links are allowed there ) or just some links that redirect to amazon. That way they either buy the product or they will still have your affiliate cookie for the next 24 hours so anything teh buy you get a % of :)

    Are there any other programs besides Amazon? It's not very easy to put their link in the website field for instagram...

    I'd honsetly wait until the account got over 50K followers.
    Then i'd start a website with ads and so on.

    Sorry to hi-jack your thread Unforgiving, but I have some similar questions (hopefully you'll gain some information too).

    I have an Insta account that's related to a certain niche, it has 30,000 real followers. So far I haven't used it to make any money, but I'm in the process of creating a niche/authority website that is related to the niche. The website will have Adsense and a lot of qulaity articles.

    I'm interested in hearing from people who promote their 'money sites' in their Instagram bio. How many followers do you have and how many people are clicking on the link in your bio, per day?

    Thanks :)

    Did you get 86 clicks on one account in 24 hours? Also did you tell them to check it out, because people need to be told what to do? Although you got 86 clicks, that doesnt mean 86 people are going to buy whatever affiliate product you are offering. Depending on how relevant the product is you may have conversions ranging from a fraction of a percent to maybe around 5%

    What that means is that if you had a targeted offer that was converting at 3% for every 100 people that clicked the link 3 people would most likely buy it.

    Its hard to say with so little information.

    There is an option to shorten the amazon associates link when making it. this might help you put it in your IG acct page

    how about make a wordpress site and put a bunch of amazon associate products on the site (basketball related)
    register your domain and have it have something to do with basketball or even be the name of your profile.
    amazon associate links are great because you get a % of anything they buy from amazon if they used your link
