Remember when we had Myspace?…Then Facebook was the big thing, and rightfully so. All the marketers, businesses, entrepreneurs, and digital ceo’s migrated to Facebook and it proved to be a breeding ground for driving traffic, expanding your customer base and getting mass amounts of sales on a daily basis! I will admit that to this day, Facebook usually provides me a net profit of about $1,000 per day. Yet in June of 2016 I finally made a break through with Instagram and quickly realized that it was the way of the future, that it could produce far more income than any other social media platform in existence. And 4 months after speaking those words I had quit my job because Instagram was making me THAT much money! It’s safe to say that although Facebook was and still is providing me an average of $1,000 per day Instagram actually enabled me to average $1,300 consistently. That’s a 30% increase!
But How And Why Does It Work?
Here are the basic facts: Facebook was 14 years old in 2017, Instagram wasn’t even 8. Facebook had 1.29B active monthly users in 2017, Instagram was already 1B. Facebook’s growth is 24% less than Instagram’s since 2014. Facebook is 80% less engaging than Instagram (1K followers on Instagram is more effective in business than 5K friends on Facebook).
Think about the last time your Facebook post (without paying for it) had more than say 500 likes or 2,000 views (if it was a video). I actually would have to deliberatly screw up my Instagram to avoid getting less than thousands of views, likes, or for that matter clicks to my website…
And that brings me to my next point. We are all taught that in order to succeed at making money online that we have to buy traffic to direct to our product. The industry standard is that you have to pay a dollar per click or if you are going to a guy like Igor Kheifets you end up paying closer to $1.75 per click. Why would I do that when I can literally get thousands of targeted followers on Instagram without the follow/unfollow method, be going viral every single day putting my content in front of ONLY people who actually care about what I am doing, and most importantly be able to drive thousands of targeted clicks to my offers every single week COMPLETELY FREE?…why would I pay for a solo ad? Why would I ever spend another dime on traffic?…get where I am going with this?…
But It Doesn’t End There…
Here is another misconception about making money online. And that is this; you have to recruit and convince other people to buy some sort of bullshit system and after getting enough good marketers on your team you will have a sustainable business in 2 to 5 years. Traffic is one thing, everyone needs traffic, but Instagram is so much more than that. One of my biggest money makers is simply growing viral Instagram accounts and selling (yes there is more to it than that but the concept is pretty basic). Of course you have to actually know how the algorithm works, but that is what we do. Did you know there are actually 17 different ways to monetize Instagram to the effect of 5 figures per month? Another question; out of Instagram’s 1B active monthly users do you know what percentage know how to properly monetize it?….LESS THAN 1%. So hopefully you are starting to connect the dots. 97% of people fail at making money online; this is a simple fact. Why? There are 4 reasons; bad product, bad mentorship, they give up too soon, and/or they don’t believe in themselves. Now the first 2 usually go hand in hand and are usually accompanied by saturation. Saturation is a MEGA reason why you will fail at making money online; no one wants to try your system, they just tried the same damn thing last week, they have been told the same thing by everyone.
So what do you do when you discover an opportunity to build life skills where there are currently over 1,000,000,000 and less than 1% of them know how to make money? You listen, that is what you do, you hop on that wave and you surf it for as long as you can.
To explain this better, I actually want to invite you to my free webinar where you get to spend about an hour with me and learn the basics, the advanced, and everywhere in between. You will learn how a 23 year old kid like myself was able to leave a 6 figure per year job to start making 5 figures per month on Instagram. You don’t have to fail any longer, and if you are looking for that solution or simply for that extra push your business needs (even if you don’t currently have a business), THIS IS FOR YOU.
