How to make money on Instagram

Making real money on Instagram can be a tough act. People sometimes asked me on Twitter and on other channels, "can I really make money on Instagram?". Beforehand I reluctantly said no. But then an idea sparked my mind.
Loads of people want to make money over this rapidly expanding photo sharing application, so why isn't there an app or a platform which can help juice some cash out of it? I did some quick market research (aka few Google searches). For my surprise I didn't find a single website that sufficiently filled this gap. Of course then I checked out some Google Trends relating to the topic. Everything seemed positive.

So I built a platform where people who have a large number of followers on Instagram can actually make money.
And here we come to it. Let me introduce Sponsorgram.

Sponsorgram connects Instagram influencers with awesome brands.

The point is that there are tons of companies who would love to advertise on Instagram but they can't yet because Instagram doesn't let them yet (source here).
And there are loads of users who would love to make a little cash on Instagram.

The idea is to connect these brands with these users to create a platform where companies can reach out to users who are willing to partner up to do incredible sponsorships which are hugely lucrative for both sides.

An Instagram sponsorship can be a simple product showcase (ex. a photo of a morning run while wearing Nike shoes ) or a link to the companies profile (ex. a link to the travel agency who is sponsoring you while you are on holiday). The possibilities are endless.

So go ahead and apply for early access here.
