The cost of an actual Instagram post has long been debated by marketing pros and anyone in the business, but the guys over at Influencer Marketing Hub have come up with the Instagram Money Calculator to help us figure it out. Spoiler alert: if you’ve got a lot of followers, then you can make a lot of money.
The only way to make money on Instagram is to get a brand to pay you directly to post about their product (unlike other ways YouTube and websites monetise by including ads alongside or before their content), but even so it can still be pretty lucrative.
Check this diagram out, which is using Beyonce’s Instagram account for the stats:
Man. Like Beyonce needs any more money, she can literally earn what I would earn in about ten years just by putting up a goddamn Instagram post that probably takes her about 30 seconds. Hell, she probably has someone to do all the filters and post it for her too – why would she waste her time doing something banal and menial like that? Life is unfair.
