Instagram is hot. Vanity got the best of us and we all want to post our lives online to brag about how great we are even if we are not. Instagram is also great for business because you can promote it easily and attract a lot of followers who can become your customers.
There are a lot of bloggers, business people or famous people making a lot of money with their Instagram accounts. But you are not one of them. Here’s what nobody tells you about becoming rich on Instagram.
“You will not get rich on Instagram because you are not famous and you are not a big company and most of all because you are only copying photos from the internet and post it on your account. You are one of the millions of useless subscribers on Instagram who wants to become famous and make money plagiarizing. Congratulations, you just became an Instagram victim.
If you are not like the person I just described and you ‘re using your Instagram for posting your own and personal photos to share it with your friends, congratulations, you may not be an Instagram victim.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Instagram and I use it. I own two accounts, a personal one, and one for my business, but I am not wasting money on it.
As far as I am concerned, there are three types of Instagram owners and two simple ways to waste money on Instagram.
The 3 types of Instagram owners
I call them that way because they are plagiarizing and this is how you have to call them. These guys or girls are simply copying photos from the internet and they use different softwares to follow, then unfollow, so they can create a fake account thinking some companies will contact them and offer them money to post some of their products. They are wasting money buying fake followers and they end up doing nothing with those accounts.
2. Real users doing real work
Instagram was founded as a platform for photographers who travel or capture interesting stuff. The internet is a way to connect with people, where users around the world can share their experiences and enrich their knowledge. There are also famous and successful bloggers who are writing or selling different stuff who have great success on Instagram because they are original, creative, and they have something new to promote each week.
3. Amateur users
There are a lot of amateur users who are simply posting moments of their lives not looking for success, not looking to become rich or to impress someone. They are posting photos from their day to day lives. These users are harmless and they will never become Instagram victims.
BONUS USERS; I will call them “shitty users”. I will do that because they have shitty businesses and they are trying to attract customers using fake photos and posting fake messages just to increase their accounts and make people buy their shit.
The 2 ways you can waste money using Instagram
These 2 ways are being used by plagiarists and shitty users. Being a plagiarist or a shitty user on Instagram will make you spend some money in these two ways:
- Instagram ads. This tool is great for the real users, but when you are not such a user you’ll waste a lot of money trying to promote fake content; people will never react.
- Fake followers. There are some online tools which can help you add thousands of followers to your account for a few bucks. These users will help you increase your ego. It will not help your account at all. I know I said a few buck, but once you see your number of followers growing you will go mad and start spending money to get fake followers constantly. You will think this is the real deal. But it’s not.
Instagram is maybe one of the greatest inventions of the modern era. It’s an amazing tool for real users and real businesses which are actually doing something. Also, globe trotters are very happy this app was invented because they make a lot of money posting unique photos.
If you want to add Instagram to your business this may be a great idea, but only if you are a real developer and you are not hunting for fast and fake ways to become rich. Think about Instagram as a helping tool for your business, not a business itself. Create a business, a blog, travel or start taking original photos; make unique videos and then choose Instagram to reach the world.
Instagram is even better than Facebook these days because you have direct contact with people around the world through images. Be smart and make the right choice for you and for your business or passion. Don’t become a victim and don’t waste money promoting something fake. Promote yourself or your business because this will be original and this is what people want to see.
