So, how much should you charge for a post? There’s no hard rule, but the general consensus is $5-$10 CPM (cost per thousand) for Instagram. For Instagram that means you’ll charge $5-$10 for every 1,000 followers, So someone with 10,000 followers would charge $50-$100, whilst someone with 1 million followers would charge $5,000-$10,000 per Instagram post. Which end of the spectrum your Instagram rate falls on depends on a lot of factors – your engagement, the quality of photo you’re producing, how competitive you want to be. Personally, if you’ve got good engagement (most brands look for at least 2-4%) and you’re producing high-quality photos, then I think you can and should charge closer to $10 CPM.
My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.

Conducting a Webstagram search is an excellent way to find popular relevant hashtags for your business in a fraction of the time it would take to do so if you were searching them out yourself directly from Instagram. You can tailor your search simply by entering relevant keywords to your business into the search bar at the top of the page. The platform is free and easy to use, so it is totally worth doing a quick Webstagram search as you try to identify key information relevant to your Instagram marketing strategy. When you do a Webstagram search, the site generates a list of the most popular related hashtags and users on Instagram, and from there, you can both find the best tags to include on your photos as well as potential influencers.
On the other hand this experiment could be helpful if taken with a large grain of salt – I can see how this can inspire marketing ideas for consumer /lifestyle brands. I’ll be looking into some of the things you mentioned for a consumer client of mine who’s demographic is perfectly in the Instagram space. Minus the bikini models though – that’s just not my style 😉
Fragen-Sticker: Mittels der vor kurzem ausgerollten Fragen-Sticker können Follower dir Fragen stellen. Das vorgegebene Frageformat lautet: „Stelle mir eine Frage“. Dieses kannst du natürlich abwandeln und spezifizieren. Natürlich kannst du dir diese Option auch anderweitig zu Nutze machen, die Funktion umdrehen und eine Frage an deine Abonnenten stellen. Das Engagement ist dir gesichert.

On the one hand I have to agree with some of previous commenters who failed to see a clear objective of this experiment. Was it to show how Instagram can help ALL types of businesses because to me the tactics you used seemed best suited to lifestyle/consumer brands not so much professional services. Also, as a female, and long-time reader of your blog, I was a little disappointed at the sexist overtones of some of your tactics – I don’t see how bikini clad models have to do with entrepreneurship or your brand in general.
Hi Stef, so sorry to hear you still haven’t gotten your money back. Ugh how frustrating! After the fact I’ve heard several not-so-great accounts of Modern Thrive so I am definitely much more careful now. I’ve reported her as well to the Consumer Protection Agency and to Instagram, but I’m not sure it’s helped. At least in terms of content, I’ve now covered everything I would have covered during the workshop and lots more in these three posts. It’s the least I can do!
If you're running a business and you want to generate more sales, you should take a course workshop! This Instagram course will teach you a proven system for turning your followers into customers. This is great for: Coaches / Bloggers / Artists / Consultants / Product Sellers / Designers / Online Course Creators / even a lawyer. You'll get 100% refund if you don't see results in 14 days.
The approach you choose should also depend on how much you’re willing to spend. A larger budget allows you to partner with larger influencers who can get you as much exposure as possible. However, influencer marketing is known to be expensive. Another option is to target micro-influencers in your niche who don’t have millions of followers but have thousands of highly engaged followers.

Da Megachats häufig den Link-Verkürzer von Google nutzt, konnten wir einen Blick auf die Klickzahlen werfen. Denn der Account-Betreiber hat vergessen, die Statistik für die Öffentlichkeit zu sperren. Das Hinzufügen des Befehls #analytics in die URL genügt, um Zugriff auf die Daten zu erhalten. Das Ergebnis: An guten Tagen klicken gut und gerne 4.000 Follower auf den Affiliate-Link, an sehr guten auch mal 20.000. Besonders das Versprechen von kostenloser Musik scheint viele anzuziehen, den Deezer-Link klicken deutlich mehr Nutzer, als die zu den Spiele-Apps. Megachat nutzt als Affiliate Netzwerk den recht neuen Player Sharepop. Das Unternehmen wurde erst 2014 gegründet und firmiert unter dem Dach der SADH Internet GmbH, bei der Tim Koschella, Co-Founder des Erfolgs-Startups Hitfox, Managing Director ist. Sharepop bietet Influencern auf Facebook, Youtube, Twitter und Instagram eine Affiliate-Lösung an. Megachats bekommt für jede Installation einen Betrag zwischen einem und fünf Euro, je nach beworbener App. Ausgezahlt wird erst einmal in virtuellen „Coins“ (100 Coins sind ein Euro), ab 5000 Coins (50 Euro) können sich die Affiliates das Geld über Paypal auszahlen lassen.
