Hustle at Home: IGTV
If you’ve been under a rock you may not have heard about Instagram adding a new feature called IGTV (Instagram TV.) Or maybe I spend too much time scrolling social when I should be doing something with the kids…?
Instagram TV allows you to create your own channel (just like YouTube) except the videos that you upload are in vertical format, meaning the video is meant to be viewed on a cell phone without the viewer having to turn the device sideways.
Hallelujah…I’m not much of a YouTube user because I can’t stand having to turn my phone to get a good look at the video.
As soon as I saw this new feature, my next thought was….”How to make money with IGTV?
Before I get to how to make money with IGTV (from home of course!), check to see if you have the feature yet. If you don’t have the IGTV feature yet, try updating your app and if that doesn’t work, just go download it!

If you love something enough, you were probably gonna tell a friend about it anyway….why not get paid to do that and have a little fun by creating a channel just for reviews. Make money doing this by writing into these brands with some ideas on how you can showcase their item on your channel. If they are interested in your ideas, you can ask them for a sponsorship fee to cover the cost of you making that IGTV video!
That’s still a thing, huh? Yup and affiliate marketing is strong as hell out here in the online hustle streets!IGTV and #AffiliateMarketing are a match made in heaven. #wahm #bossmom #mombossClick To Tweet
Most brands have an affiliate program that you can easily join and get your own special links that people can order from and you’ll get a cut of the sales. Make a list of all the products/services you know, love and would’ve raved about anyway and then search the internet to see if they’re business has an affiliate program. Searching ‘BRAND NAME + affiliate program” usually does the trick!
Those are the first three ideas that popped up in my head when I thought about how to make money with IGTV. I’m sure there will be plenty more in the weeks to come as we all warm up to the new changes.
