Was reading an article about Instagram influencers – it included their work flow and business model.
Overall an interesting read – it gave me a thumbnail of something I don’t do. (It’s good to know about what’s going on in your general environment without getting too bogged down.)
What struck me was the honesty.
Toward the end of the article it mentioned how it takes approximately 100,000 followers to be established as a real business.
And then it said it takes about two years to achieve that benchmark.
Of course this finding is variable. If you’re famous you can get that in a week. If you’re ugly might take a little bit longer.
Anyway those are real numbers. If you want to make Instagram a business you’d be wise to follow those thumbnails. You might be able make some money with somewhat fewer followers, or it might take you a little longer to get to 100,000.
The point is Instagram marketing is like all marketing. It’s not magic. It’s based on numbers.
In the paid version of Timeless Profit Principles I talk a little bit more about numbers and formulas that make a marketing business work.
While a lot of people actually shy away from thinking in realistic terms in regard to their marketing efforts, I believe you’ll find that it is a great relief.
When you approach your passion project with an awareness of the numbers that turn it into a business you will be more capable of doing the simple everyday things that make it profitable.
