How to Sell on Instagram

a step by step guide to selling on instagram

Added August 2016: This course was created in 2014, but people still buy it today because the information is still very relevant with Instagram continuing to be one of the most popular social media platforms out there. I am excited to be able to offer it on this platform which is much more user friendly than hosting it on my own website. If you previously purchased this course before I moved it, please feel free to contact me to gain access.

This course was inspired by a post I wrote with tips for selling on Instagram in 2012. I was flooded with comments and emails asking for more info, specifically, more detailed help on getting started. I've put together this course to walk you step by step from start to finish.

Instagram is a highly visual social media platform that, while not created for the purpose, makes a great place to sell. Whether you're hoping to make a little extra holiday money selling preloved clothing from your closet or you want to start selling your handmade goods, in the How to Sell on Instagram eCourse I outline step-by-step how to get started.

I started selling on Instagram several years ago. I had nice clothes that I loved, but wasn't wearing and didn't want to sell for fifty cents at a yard sale. I signed up for a new Instagram account dedicated to selling and sold quite a bit of my clothing there for much more than I'd get locally. I even used Instagram as a platform to raise money for vet bills when my dog got very sick by selling off clothing and vintage items I had collected over the years. The support and community present on Instagram is beyond amazing and if you use it right, it's one of the best platforms for small-scale community selling.

Included in the course are 9 sections outlining the different steps to get started, downloads and my favorite tips and resources.

The eCourse is broken down into several sections:

  1. Intro + Why You Should Sell on Instagram
  2. Preparing to Sell
  3. Taking Photos That Help You Sell
  4. Posting Your Items
  5. Price & Shipping Calculation
  6. All About Paypal
  7. Packing & Shipping
  8. Marketing Your Instagram Shop
  9. FAQ, Tips & Resources

I also included some digital downloads to help you get started:

  • Sell on Instagram Checklist
  • Listing Planner Sheets
  • Several graphics you can use for your own instagram shop

I make sure to cover every aspect of selling on Instagram as well as a lot of tips to online selling in general from paypal to packing and shipping. Included is a video showing how I edit my product photos in less than 1 minute using my iPhone, how I measure clothing, exactly how to set up your Instagram profile so it's eye catching and informative, how to send money requests and invoices in paypal and much, much more!

If you're thinking about selling on Instagram this eCourse will help walk you through the steps to get started quickly and with confidence!
