    Would be great if you could tell us about the niche you are targeting.

    No one (at least me) is going to "give" you the method/approach that will make/earn money. It will require some work on your part which includes doing your research and testing various methods to see what works best for you. There's good money to be made on Instagram though it will take some work, effort and creativity.

    Even I don't see how one can make money off Instagram, but a quick google says you can use services like Snapfluence and Amazon affiliate in conjuncture with Instagram and make $$$

    What's you niche? The're plenty of ways you can "try" to make money with Instagram, but that would depend on the niche your audience is following.

    Start posting quality content.
    Then once you reach 20-30K you can sell posts and shoutouts for around 5-10 usd.

    Also use a bot to gain more followers, and try to do S4S with big accounts in the same niche.

    Other then that, you could start a website that is niche related and put ads there.

    EDIT: And on the website you could have PPS offers.

    I want to keep that private.
    But i can tell you it is in the adult niche, the website is a tube site.

    I would say buy a domain related to your Instagram niche and hosting for it. Maybe monetize it with Adsense or another way and link it in your Instagram description. That way your followers and any new people will visit your website and you will get cash money. This is just one of the things that I recommend doing along side your other ways of monetizing it.
