With over 200 million users and soon going to be having over 400 million users it’s no surprise that affiliate marketing through Instagram has been gaining momentum. There are many ways to market online through social networks but one of the most effective ways is through advertising it. It can also be a source of passive income for those who have the patience and dedication to build a successful business. There are 5 ways to market online using Instagram.

Affiliate Marketing

The first way to market with Instagram is to promote your affiliate products. This is very easy to do as it only takes a few minutes of your time to post a promotional image of your products to be shown on the main page. Once people start noticing you affiliate products displayed on your page they will see the link and follow to your site to check out what you have to offer. Every time a purchase is made through your images, you will earn a commission which is based on the total amount you have earned from the sales. So if you have lots of images promoting a wide range of products you can make quite a tidy sum of money.

Facebook Ads

The second way to promote products through Instagram is through the use of Facebook Ads. You can set up an ad within the privacy settings of Facebook to display relevant product ads. When someone clicks on one of the ads you will earn commissions on the sale. For each sale, you will be paid a fixed amount or a percentage of the sale depending on the product the affiliate has promoted.

Add link

The third way is through the use of the link provided on the top left-hand corner of the page. Whenever someone clicks on this link, the user will be taken back to the affiliate website where they can find the product they have clicked on an ad. To earn commissions on sales you should provide good quality content in the comments section of your page or in your emails. This will help the user keep returning to your site for more content and help establish a good affiliate relationship with them.

Review system

The fourth way is through the review system. If you can write reviews about certain products or services then by adding the affiliate link to your review, you can promote more products or change the affiliate link to another product you like. Make sure you write unbiased reviews. By doing this you can earn more sales.

Purchase product

The fifth way is the direct purchase of products from the affiliate. Whenever you finish a survey or any form of engagement with a user and want to buy that user something, you can click on the link provided on that engagement or send a message requesting for the purchase. This will automatically add the affiliate product to your page so you can promote more products. Also, you earn a commission on every product you purchase.


Lastly, you can promote other affiliate products and earn commissions on each purchase they make. Again you make a referral fee when referring customers to an affiliate. All you have to do is send them a message requesting a discount code for their next purchase. When they enter the discount code, your affiliate account will be credited and you can make additional purchases from their account.

You can see that it’s not hard to make money through this marketing method. There are only five ways to do it but these are the basic methods. However, you don’t have to do these five things exclusively. You can use some or all of them. But, it’s important to keep an open line of communication between you and your Instagram followers.
