Each of us knows Instagram. It is an American photo and video-sharing social networking service. If you’ve ever wondered if it could be used to make money, be sure to read on. This article was created in collaboration with For the Love of Diabetes, who was able to create an Instagram account with more than 60,000 followers in less than 70 days. Do you think that’s not possible? We’ll tell you how you can do it too.
When is the right time to create your Instagram account?
”Don’t wait for the Right Time. Just do it and make The Time Right.”Meghna
It will never be the right time. Everyone can create an Instagram account, but do you want to spend your free time? For the love of diabetes told me that he adds 8-10 posts a day. Don’t expect it will be easy, and followers will come.
The First 1000 followers take a lot of time. That’s because you are new, and not many people are exposed to your posts. When you achieve this number algorithm will start to help you. Then more people will see your post, and you’ll gain more followers.
It takes a few days or weeks until you get the first 1000 followers. Don’t give up. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

How to choose an Instagram niche?
Find something in your life that sets you apart from others. Don’t try to be the same as everyone else just because it makes them money. You will see many people on Instagram who make a lot of money this way, but ask yourself: Is it what you want to do?
”Never start a business just to make money. Start a business to make a difference.”Marie Forleo
Take the example of For the love of diabetes. Have you ever thought that this niche can reach so many followers in such a short time? His strategy was not to find a way how to make money as soon as possible. He was looking for a way to help people with the same problem.
As he said: ”I just do what I am best at, being empathetic. Replying to direct messages, being interested in people, helping people, and promoting their work.”
Don’t be pushed by your problems. A problem is a chance for you to do your best.
Don’t you know how to manage your Instagram account and create posts?
Each of us had to learn everything he knew. You don’t have to study graphics or marketing at University to be successful on Instagram. If you don’t know something, don’t take it as a problem but as an opportunity to learn new things. Start and see how everyone appreciates a bit of sunshine in their life.
Nothing will make you as happy as helping someone without expectations. Show everyone around you that this world can be a nice place if we treat each other with respect and help each other.

What will you get by building an Instagram account?
You will encounter many problems and people who will help you solve them. Remember, you are never alone. Every problem has a solution. Sometimes it just takes a long time to find the solution, even if it is right in front of your nose.
If you do what you enjoy, people will find a way to you. Wherever are people, there is also a way to make some money. That’s why most people start building businesses. But don’t forget why you started. Don’t let money become more important than the people you want to help.
I am grateful to For the Love of Diabetes, who helped me create this article, and I hope he inspired you. Stop complaining and use your problem to help people with their problems. I will be thankful if you support his idea and follow him on Instagram: For the love of diabetes
