Although you want to pick a niche that has a wide audience, you also need to be specific and target a specific niche market. For example, If you take the Fitness niche (which is huge), the term and niche ‘Fitness’ is too broad. So, you should really aim to go 3 levels deep in this niche.
Men’s Diet For Fitness
Targeting a specific audience such as ‘Men’s diet for fitness’ allows you to really home in on a group of people, who will see you as an authoritative figure in that area.
The thing you will want to do, is start to build a following. One of the easiest ways to build a following on Instagram, is by reposting valuable content, that other people want to engage with. Go over to Instagram and take a look at what content people are posting. You want to use the correct Tags, so for instance, using hashtags that are related to your niche,such as #mensfitnessdiet,#dietforfitenss,#fitnessfood, would be ideal. These Hashtags, would allow you to start showing up in people’s Instagram feeds and as a result, help you grow your followers.
There are many different ways in which you can make money from your Instagram channel but one of the easiest ways, is from Affiliate offers. One of the best Affiliate networks to start using as an Affiliate, is Clickbank.

Amazon is also another really good network to become Affiliated with but the commissions are generally much lower, around 4%.
Whatever product you decide to promote on Instagram, you will need to get your Affiliate link in from of people, so they click on it. A good way to do this, is to message people who have viewed your posts or videos. Get in touch with them and say something like:
“Hi, I see you like the video. If you’re interested in learning more waysto…(related to your product), this is the product that is helping a lot of people and I recommend it too.”

How Many Followers To Make Money On Instagram
There is a misconception about how many followers you need, before you can start making money from Instagram. Some people say you need 50000 – 100000 followers but this isn’t the case. If you are wanting to make money from ‘Shout Outs’, then yes you would probably need to have a large number of followers but if you are Direct Messaging your Followers and keeping in contact with them, then there is no real reason why you can’t start making good money with as little as 1000 Followers.
