How to make money with instagram and affiliate marketing

Hey, Thanh here. In this post you will see a powerful method to make money with free traffic: How to make money with Instagram and affiliate marketing


If you are looking for a way to make money online, then Instagram is for you.

(There are at least 17 ways to make money with it)

Or, if you want to drive more traffic, getting leads, and sales in any online industry, then Instagram is also for you. Instagram traffic is super hot and once you deploy this method, you can easily bank up to $380.00 per day and beyond. (Though this included some sales with my email marketing)

First, let me remind you of affiliate marketing’s definition: “Affiliate marketing is one of the oldest forms of marketing wherein you refer someone to any online product and when that person buys the product based on your recommendation, you receive a commission.”

This commission varies from $1 to $10,000 or more per sale depending on what product you are promoting.

Internet marketers who have been into online marketing for years are familiar with affiliate marketing, and also with the fact that it is the most lucrative way to earn money online.

In online marketing, basically you will grab your affiliate links of the product from online market places and drive as many targeted visitors [in another word – traffic] as possible to those links. The companies will track your sales and send payouts based on your stats.

I assume that people who request for this file already have certain knowledge of internet marketing. If you have been here for a while, you must realize the #1 thing most people are struggling for is how to get traffic to their links.

And Instagram would be a great way for it. Look at these stats.

Instagram is the world fastest growing social network. In 2017 Instagram:

  • Has over 600 million monthly users and 400 million daily users
  • 2 million new users in the past 12 months
  • Engagement levels are 52 times greater than on facebook and 127 time higher than Twitter

With the huge updates Instagram has made in 2017, there has never been a better time to be a part of it and no wonder why 90% of the world’s top brands are on it making millions.

So now do you see the power of instagram. It would be the trend that most of big online marketers are jumping on now. Are you ready to grab a part of the pie?

The idea of making money on instagram with affiliate marketing is pretty simple.

Instagram allows you to put your website/affiliate link (only 1 link) in your bio. Then you grow your account by getting more targeted followers. If the followers see your bio and they are interested in, they will click on it and if it an eye-catchy page with an irresistible offer, they will leave their emails (you will capture leads) or if it’s a sale page, they will buy and you get the commission!

There are some elements that help you to gain success with this method:

  1. Create an optimized Instagram profile: An attractive bio
  2. Use A Highly Converting Offer To Make $$$
  3. Drive as many followers to your accounts as possible.

Let’s go into details.

  1. Create an optimized Instagram profile

Have an attractive bio

What is a bio?

Ever heard the saying first impressions count? It’s 100% true. If your instagram profile sucks then people are going to leave it just as quickly as they land on it. Which means you’ll lose out on a ton of money.

But, don’t worry. I’m about to show you how to bank with your bio to make maximum dollars.

Your Instagram bio is situated below your name, follower, following, and post count.

An account bio is like this:

Basically, it is a short description about yourself. In business, we can put a short description of our business. Let’s take a look at the elements of a money making instagram profile and make sure your page is set up to make big commissions…

  • Username
  • Profile Photo  (in black and white would be more professional). You can make it or hire someone on   to design.
  • Description + Call To Action
  • Link w/ Affiliate Offer

Your bio is how you will drive tons of free traffic to whatever affiliate offer you promote.

How to set up an bio

Follow these steps:

Step 1: Download Instagram app from google play/apple store

Step 2: Create a free account (email or mobile phone number required)

Step 3: Tab on the icon in the bottom right on your phone screen.

Step 4: Tab on Edit profile

Then an option tabs will appear. It allows you to:

Invite friends from facebook, find friends, edit profile, change password, logout …

Step 5: Fill in your name, your bio then save it by touch the blue tick on the top right corner. Create a bio that reflects what you are about, your type of lifestyle, look at the example profile below that I use for one of my new instagram profiles… include a call to action like in the picture below, this is telling your views to click your link and get leads/sales…

P/s: the website link could be your affiliate link (use to shorten it) but I higher recommend you use a website link of your capture page. It’s the basic online marketing principle.

NOTE 1: Use A Highly Converting Offer To Make $$$

Choose a niche and a product to start promoting. If you don’t promote any company, you can promote products from some free affiliate market places:


Just a minute ago in the previous part, remember I recommend you to put the link of the capture page on your bio?

The main purpose of it is to capture the email of the prospects so that you can send them follow-up emails via email marketing. This is still one of the most effective methods you should use.

You should use to build a capture page. Clickfunnels is super easy to use and it’s a really really nice company in this marketing online space. Builderall is another option with only $9.9/mo with all marketing tools you need. Or if you don’t like monthly free subscription and you have a wordpress site, you can consider using Igloo.

For email marketing, you can use either (30 days free)

Make sure you check the spam score carefully to minimize the chance your emails landing at spam folder.

How about a good product? Here are some traits:

  1. Have distinctive/unique traits to write catchy tittle. Visitors will have only 5 seconds to decide to leave their emails on your page or not. It’s better to give a bait that is relevant to your offers so that it would be easier for composing email follow-up sequence.
  2. It works. Definitely. If you promote something that does not work, you are wasting your time and ruin your brand.
  3. In high demand. The product sells itself. Especially if you do affiliate marketing, you don’t own the products.

In case you are working on CPA affiliate marketing (CPA model is the easier way to make money with I believe as you can make commission just by people signing in the form, taking some action required without they purchasing anything), EEC is a good one to try (I make good money with it by promoting on Instagram). You can see more detail here.

Tips: I sometimes find softwares to promote. It works extremely well for me.

Only this tip can help you earn lots of money. 🙂

NOTE 2: Drive as many followers to your accounts as possible.
