Did you know there are actually thousands of ways you can make money from the Internet? And, if you are wondering how in the world are some people able to make serious money with just a few clicks of a button on the web, then this article is for you.
Emma from the popular travel blog, LuxuryBackpacking.net is making thousands of dollars using only her Instagram account. Her travel blog has an impressive 58,000 followers. Emma was able to figure out how to make her Instagram her revenue generating asset.
Today, Emma is working on turning her blog into another money-making tool. You see, she’s making real money through Instagram while traveling around the world – full time!
Cool right? So, how did she do it?
First, let’s get to know a bit of her background. Emma is originally from London, and she’s now studying Business at University in Sydney. At just 20 years old, she has traveled to 45 countries, and she has no plans to stop there. She believes that not all those who travel are rich and the blog she shares with her partner, aims to let people know how to travel the world for less.
According to Emma, she started with an Instagram account – Luxurybackpacking, in 2015. In just a year, she had almost 50,000 followers. Inspired by that, she started a blog in October 2016.
Emma shared that her monthly revenue averages at $2,000 to $3,000 a month, with the majority of their income coming from sponsored Instagram posts. Amazing, isn’t it? When asked how she discovered she could make money with Instagram, she said their followers grew significantly after they started posting high-quality photos from their travels. Their ultimate goal was to inspire others to travel the world in luxury for less, and in turn, that helped them earn money on Instagram. They have even started making money just a few months after they first started.
Emma’s favourite part about running an online business is the feeling she gets after knowing she has helped others achieve their lifelong travel dreams. This young online entrepreneur also believes that the key to success is perseverance.
While there are already a lot of Instagrammers out there, Emma believes that the quality of the photos they regularly post on their Instagram account sets them apart from everyone else. She always takes the time to think through what to post next. Her other secret? Engaging with the other bloggers and the followers of their travel niche.
But, like most entrepreneurs, Emma had her fair share of failure too. She recently spent a significant amount of money for a Facebook ad which turned out to be a huge flop. From that experience, she learned the importance of doing careful research prior to investing in the social media.
At present, Emma is writing an E-course on how to be prolific on Instagram and earn a solid income. She hopes to release it a couple of months from now. In the end, she has a piece of advice for solo travelers. She said they should never be afraid to travel on their own.
