I know you have been wondering how to crack this Instagram business code and join thousands of Nigerians already making some good bucks off the photo-sharing app. I am going to cut through the chase and give you some practical steps and businesses if well executed will set you on the road to financial emancipation.
1. Sell Wigs on Instagram.
You don’t have to know how to make wigs, all you need is to do is to assemble some good hands to make the wigs for you or simply look for makers who sell in bulk. Remember your wigs have to be very neat, light and of a good quality. Pay attention to the wig caps used in making the wigs and the colours that sell faster. Next, rock the wigs or get your friends to wear the wigs and then take quality pictures of them. Upload selected pictures on Instagram with the right hashtags. Pay close attention to the hashtags you use. The right hashtags will expose your products to the right people and even reach a wider audience.
2. Sell female, male clothing, shoes and bags
If you are very good at sourcing the kind of clothing and shoes women love to wear, you are on your way to making some cool money. Men are not left out as well. However, you have to be strategic with your approach to this business. There are a lot of things you can sell here but not everything sells. For instance, you can choose to target corporate ladies and guys or party goers or just male and female underwear. Carry out some market survey to find out what is in demand most of the time especially across seasons. Now that the hard part has been sorted; next is to get some models or your good looking friends to model the outfits. Select only the best pictures and upload. As usual, make good use of hashtags. Don’t forget that buying cheaper and selling at margin is the ultimate goal here. Just like everything in life consistency, dedication and hardwork are key ingredients in making it to the top.
3. Sell Perfumes.
What you need in this business is your capital and finding some good sources of supply. However, remember to first define your niche because that will determine the quality of perfumes to stock. Go for some good designers and other good quality perfumes that are not necessarily very expensive.
4. Market your skills
Can you cook, sew, dance, write, tell good stories, sing, act, tell good jokes,play any musical instrument with some dexterity? Whatever it is that you can do very well, Instagram is one platform you can maximize to your financial advantage. Remember the key thing here is packaging. Embrace excellence and honesty in everything you do. You can’t be haphazard in your approach to Instagram marketing and expect to make a kill.
Another key point is logistics. You may begin this business by going to deliver the goods yourself to your customers but at some point, you are going to need the services of some logistics companies to ensure prompt delivery. That on it’s on brings it’s kind of challenges but you will surmount them when you get there.
All the best. See you at the top
