In 2017, I started growing my Instagram blog and acquired over 500,000 followers in 4 years. The only promotion method I used was ordering ads from other bloggers. And even considering the fact that advertising was cheaper back in 2017, my endeavor required a pretty big chunk of change. It’s hard to recoup the costs, especially when you’re on maternity leave and have no full-time job.
To expand my audience and earnings, I created a Telegram channel in 2021, where I started promoting goods by posting affiliate links. But I couldn’t get more than 300 followers, so I turned to ConvertSocial, where my manager suggested some free promotion methods. Together, we came up with a development strategy, and in less than three months, over 10,000 people had subscribed to my Telegram channel.
Today, all my social media accounts deal with discounts and promo codes. I have tried my hand in various verticals over the past 5 years, but this one is the most versatile and profitable for me.
