I own an Instagram account that I started in high school that has since accrued roughly 55k followers. It is a gaming / tech news based Instagram account. Although I have been mostly inactive the last few years, I posted recently just to see if I still have consistent engagement and traffic. People are still engaging with regular posts and any stories I post and it got me thinking that someone could still utilize the traffic of this account. I wanted to figure out a way to make money off this account being that its just basically sitting there and I’m not using it. If I started focusing on the account more again, how would I go about trying to make ad revenue from it? I’ve explore the option of selling the account but where would I go to do that and how do I begin to put a value on it? Any advice is appreciated.
Affiliate marketing would be a good option, especially within that niche. You could do stories with a swipe up link or static posts directing people to purchase through your bio link. It’s more difficult to get accepted into affiliate programs without a domain but it can be done.
