Earnings through advertising
If you already have an Instagram account with live subscribers, and their number is more than 100 thousand people, it gives you the opportunity to place ads in your posts. For this, it is important that your profile is popular and your followers are active. If your account is not popular enough, you will need some means to promote it. Of course, there are some free methods, but don’t expect instant results from them.
In fact, there may be far fewer subscribers, just the earnings will also be less.

At the end of 2016, Instagram introduced a feature called shopping tags, through which retailers can tag products in their photos and users can buy them directly from the app. Initially, this feature for making money was only available to users in the United States, but every year the list of countries is expanding.
