Making it on Instagram largely depends on the niche you choose. If you don’t get this right the first time all your efforts will be for close to nothing. Not only does your niche has to be attractive to lots of people. You also need to find some way to monetize it, as with fame comes money but if your followers have no way to spend it, well I suppose you are getting my point already so let’s take a look at the most popular and profitable niches to promote your brand/self on Instagram.
Health & Fitness
People love to see healthy, fun-loving people, and men like to show off their body on the beach. So regardless of you being male or female you can make a lot of money in this niche and attract hundreds of thousands of followers. Nothing is too crazy here. In terms of monetization, you have so many products to choose from that I don’t even know where to start. If you’re really that clueless how about some diet pills?
Beauty & Fashion
This one works exceptionally well for the ladies, though if you’re male the modern men will follow you as well. You can test thousands of beauty products and wear unlimited pieces of clothes. That’s what most clothing companies do by the way, send out free clothes to famous people on Instagram simply to get their brand out there and all you have to do is make a photo and share it with the world. Your wardrobe will never run dry if you become active in this niche.
Travel & Holidays
Don’t we just love to browse through Instagram for hours at end to check out the latest holiday destinations? I know I do, I can literally spend all day on Instagram checking out the Bahamas, Seychelles, the Cote D’Azur, and what not. Stunning photos excite me and it does the same for millions of others. If you’re on a tight budget you might not want to join the travel niche as people do expect you to travel of course, and not just in and around your city 😉
This works exceptionally well for a male audience, think of the Redbull races and what not. Or to keep it a little closer to home you can show off your biking skills, or perhaps snowboarding, skateboarding, kiting, whatever really. Each sport has their own unique audience so do something with that.
