One of the most popular questions asked online: How much money Instagram models make?
After much research and interviews with models that I managed to talk with, here are some figures to give you an idea how much money do these models make.
Keep in mind, the amount money each model makes varies depending on popularity, demographics etc. So, I’d recommend to take these figures more like guidelines so you can have some idea about the subject; and not rule of thumb.
Less than 10,000 followers
“Micro” influencers are considered to be from 6,000 to 10,000 followers. Based on a recent survey, these accounts could possibly make up to, an average, $88.00 per post.
Less than 100,000 followers
Influencers with 50,000 to 80,000 followers can potentially get around $200.00 per post, but the price point changes based on the advertiser(s).
An interview with Vox revealed that, ViralNation, an influencer agency (Pewdiepie one of their influencers), told the news outlet that micro influencers who have around 10,000-50,000 followers can make up to thousands of dollars now.
Less than 500,000 followers
Accounts of this stature (around 250,000-500,000 followers) have nailed that ‘game’ of Instagram influencing, with potential earnings averaging at $670.00 per post.
1 million or more followers
Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 per post.
Influencers at this level get paid handsomely – they’re getting into region where they can charge $100,000. Some of the more popular ones can even get $250,000 for a post!
These are especially true if the content is on Youtube and the influencer is in the gaming industry.

You feel you have the right idea. You know your company can make the difference in the market. Somewhow, you just can’t make that journey to success. You lack the productivity due to little to no motivation.
In today’s article, I’m sharing with you the 15 ways that can help to boost you productivity level.
1. Wake up Early (Hear Me Out)
This is the ‘early bird gets the worm’ saying. Many successful people swear by it. My personal favorite would be Mark Wahlberg’s schedule. He wakes up around 2 to 3am and start his day with workouts, and work afterwards. In a nutshell, he gets a lot of things done as people just about to get off bed.
There are numerous studies that point out how your work rate improves tremendously since your brain is fresh in the morning able to perform tasks at optimal level – making it the most ideal time to get many important things done early on.
However, I do also know successful people who get up later. If you’re a night owl, then trying to wake up early means you’re going against your body’s natural rhythm. Some even shared that night time is perfect as most inspiration comes around the hour. No one can argue if it’s the truth. Do whatever that works best for you.
However, I don’t recommend this since it causes a lot of setbacks to your body as multiple clinical researches have found that lack of ‘night’ sleep could potentially lead to a number of chronic diseases.
2. Stay away from distractions when you first wake-up.
You open your eyes first thing in the morning and instinctively grab your phone. This is a mistake according to brain performance expert Jim Kwik, you shouldn’t look at your phone for the first hour of the day.
The main reason is that your brain is highly suggestible during this time. As a result, this trains our minds to become distracted because of the release of dopamine we get from our electronic devices. Your productivity also takes a hit for the rest of the day because we want to keep experiencing those good feelings. So, instead of getting to work, we stay glued to our phones.
3. Eat breakfast.
No surprise here. You need fuel to give you the energy to power through the day. Of course, you shouldn’t devour a doughnut and wash it down with a sugary drink.
Think healthier options that involve high protein like eggs or protein shakes. Add in berries, raisins, avocados into green smoothies too and not to forget a boring cup of coffee.
On top of the energy you’ll receive, these types of foods are good for your brain by improving your concentration and memory.
If breakfast is not your thing, like Elon Musk, be sure to take a heavy brunch or lunch like he does when you get the chance to help fuel you to work for the rest of the day.
If you exercise when you first wake-up, even before eating breakfast, you can overcome your grogginess. This will make it so much easier to start your day early rather than taking things slowly – which is a big ‘no’.
Remember, physical activity doesn’t just improve your overall health. Any manner of exercise will help you de-stress and clear your head.
5. Meditation and stillness.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve struggled with anxiety. If you’ve ever dealt with this, then you know it can sometimes be almost impossible to be present. It can also make falling asleep a chore or start your day with dread.
Meditating hasn’t wholly erased my anxiety. But it has made an enormous difference. It has helped calm me down and return my focus to what’s going on right now. Best of all? You can meditate whenever and wherever you like, whether if that’s right before bed, first thing when you wake, or when taking a break at work.
Practice meditating with good breathing techniques – it helps.
6. Make your bed.
I think my mom would love this entry, even though I don’t believe that I was a messy kid growing up. Anyway, making your bed is a great way to begin your day productively.
Frankly, I wasn’t really an achiever in making my bed. It was until I found I have sensitive skin that forced me to make it a habit. Turns out, bacteria are accummulated in bed if not care for it. I started making bed after knowing this and went the extra mile to spray the bed sheet and pillows with special antiseptic to kill bacteria that irritated my skin.
The importance of making bed is crucial as it sets your mindset to a winning mentality. During his 2014 commencement speech at the University of Texas, US Admiral William H. McRaven said:
“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.”
7. Recite affirmations.
Initially, I was someone can be seen as reserved. I don’t talk much back then. I just had own priorities to work on. This was something I knew had to work on since building a great business requires you to network with people.
This was where I found out about affirmations. Simple affirmations like “Today will be the best day” can make all the difference in the world. They help you focus on what you want to achieve. These affirmations release ‘positive thought’ neurons’ that can help you build you winning mindset.
Except for taking care of your health, reading is the best thing you can do for yourself. It helps you develop new ideas and perspectives. It helps reduce stress, expands your knowledge, and improves brain function such as memory, focus, and concentration.
If you’ve done enough research about Warren Buffett, or the late Steve Jobs, you’d know how much these people love to read. Truth is, no matter how smart or successful you are, you should never stop learning.
When I started running my businesses, reading got me to stay up to date with latest development in my industry. The business I was in changes frequently, so there was a lot of adapting to do from time to time. This is where reading helped me to remain competitive.
9. Schedule your time.
Mark Cuban once said how he’s not bothered much by ROI (Return On Investment) but more concerned about his ROT (Return On Time). This is an indication of how important time is. It is obvious that unlike, money, you can’t make back the time invested – unless it’s worth the effort. This is why scheduling your time is essential.
If you don’t schedule your time, then you’re going to wander aimlessly and having no direction is the last thing you want whilst running your business. Sure. You know that certain things need to get done. But, which ones are your priorities?
When exactly are you going to cross them off your to-do-list? Are there deadlines that you must adhere to? Creating a schedule helps you answer these questions and plan accordingly.
10. Pare down your decisions.
We all have a limited amount of brainpower. If you spend too much energy making low-level decisions, then you’ll experience decision fatigue. You won’t be as productive when you’re mentally drained.
Look at Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Ma, Bill Gates and so many successful people – what do they have in common other than great work ethics? They don’t get bogged down with looking rich. As long as they have proper attire on, they are good to go. Their priorities are ‘parked’ elsewhere.
I suggest that every night, you layout your wardrobe and prep your meals for tomorrow. Or, you could do this for the entire week on a Sunday. The idea here is to reserve your energy and willpower for what truly matters.
11. Put pen to paper.
There’s a routine called Morning Pages practiced by people ranging from journalist Oliver Burkeman and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss.
The idea is that when you first wake, write 750 words to clear your head. For me, this is the time I’d normally write down (or go through) my to-do list for the day. It will keep me focused on getting those tasks done for the day.
And science has also found that handwriting can spark creativity and help us learn.
12. Focus on yourself.
With so much going on in your life, it’s easy to neglect your own self-care and priorities. Over time, you’ll get burned out. No matter how amazing of a person you are, everyone needs time to rest, play, and learn. If you don’t put yourself in your schedule, then it will get filled with other time requests.
13. Practice gratitude.
It’s been found that those who spend five minutes writing down what they’re grateful for have increased their sense of well-being by 10 percent.
And, as you know, when you’re a better mood, you’re more productive.
You can also pray – thanking everything you have and have accomplished if you’re the religious type.
14. Socialize with your teammates.
Socializing with people have been found to have positive effects to your general happiness, and healthier lifestyle.
This certainly does not mean you should be socializing with people all the time – that’s time wasting.
Instead, schedule your time to allow yourself to kick back, relax and meet people to socialize.
Try working in a coworking space or catching up with a friend or colleague for lunch. And, worst-case scenario, schedule a conference call with your team.
15. Set hard time limits on certain activities.
This idea is similar to ‘Shooting for the moon. If you missed it, you’ll at least land on one of the stars.’ If you need a grade B, work like you’re an A student. If you need $1 million, work like you’re worth $10 million.
This may sound overwhelmingly difficult at first. However, by constantly setting up tough tasks – your mind and body will get attuned to such conditions. At the end of it, what you thought was impossible, was actually do-able.
If you’ve experienced long enough time as an entrepreneur, you’ve learned that there is no one cure for every disease.
In this case, some methods work perfectly for you while others don’t. Every entrepreneur and his or her business is different. So you need to mix and match what works best for you.
You’ve put in the effort. And you have yet to see the result. You become fearful and your mind starts to wonder “Am I gonna make it?”. Don’t worry, in today’s video, I’m gonna share with you the 7 major signs you’re going to be successful.
1.) You hate average.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
You don’t want to be average, and you believe that you are made for greatness; to achieve great things. You believe anything less is not an option for you.
This is where the importance of ‘mind over matter’ is emphasized. You want to do great things. You want to serve in a great way. You want to take care of those who are important to you.
This mentality will play essential role to make you a success. It will drive your will to become a master of what you want to achieve in.
Below are some of the qualities you need to focus on in order to beat ‘average’:
Willing to sacrifice short term to achieve long term success
Master self discipline
Specific skills related to your industry
2.) You practice discipline and self-control.
“Discipline is the bridge between goals and successes.”
I know I’ve listed these earlier but I’d like to talk a little in depth about it.
It’s obvious one of the basics of being an entrepreneur is to master self discipline and self control. Everybody wants to buy things right now, but nobody is willing to take a look at the bigger picture and take actions.
Being your own boss, there is no one to tell you to work. No one is there to appraise your performance. You only answer to yourself. This sounds great, but could potentially become a trap if you do not have the discipline and control over yourself.
Without these qualities, you tend to procrastinate, you become lazy, you take things for granted; and above all, you neglect mountains of responsibilities. Let’s not ignore that while being a boss is great, with it, comes a lot of responsibilities.
Practice self-control and discipline on a regular basis. Become better at it. Remember, sacrifice today so you can live a better life tomorrow!
3.) Failure doesn’t scare you.
“Failure is not the opposite of success. It’s part of success.”
Jack Ma comes into mind whenever I write or talk about failures. The Alibaba founder once said he sent multiple applications to Harvard only to be rejected. He did it purposely because he wanted to learn to overcome fear of failure.
This is one of the best way to practice facing your failure – in my opinion. What better way to learn handling failure other than facing rejection by one of the best institution in the world.
The people who are not scared of failure are the ones who become massively successful. On the other hand, people who take the ‘safe’ route becomes another average individual.
Also, failure is not permanent. It should not scare you out of action. Mark Cuban once said “All it takes is to become right once and you’ve made it.”
4.) You wake up early.
“If you don’t develop the habit of waking up early than others, you won’t be able to change the world.”
Our brain functions the best after waking up. Surveys have indicated our brains work at optimal capacity as soon you open those eyes in the morning.
Since our brains work best during this time, it’s best to get most things done within the hours. Starting your day early increases your productivity level – and every entrepreneur knows the importance of it.
Some even vouch that it’s easier to work during these hours too since it tends to be very quiet enabling them to work without much distractions.
Even if you’re not getting up at 5AM now, at least you have the awareness that getting up early is a powerful tool for your success.
5.) You surround yourself with great people.
“If you hang around nine people who are down, you will be the 10th one, if you hang around nine people who are broke, you will be the 10th one.”
We can’t control our family, where we grow up, or what we’re born into. But we can control who we spend our time with.
Successful people understand the influence of their peers. Who they spend most of their time with can some what determines who they’ll become in the future.
This is because, successful people has an aura that can be intriguing. If you spend more time with them, you tend to behave and become just like them.
You’ll start to have better attitude. You’ll improve your work ethics. You’ll start communicating better. You start reading similar books. You get the idea.
People who are a massive success know that you can only surround yourself with folks who want to be extraordinary. Eventually, you’ll try to ‘out-compete’ among yourselves and we all know how competition is good.
6.) You don’t complain.
“I think some people enjoy complaining as much as they enjoy doing nothing about it.”
Yes, entrepreneurs can be very critical – but some tend to deviate and starts to complain too much. Of course, being honest and truthful have its merits – but you need to be careful as there are setbacks too.
I used to be one, always complaining about life. Both of my parents diagnosed with chronic diseases at the same time – so I had to slow down my pursuit of success. You get the idea.
Long story-short, with time, I adapted. I still complain, but it always ends with searching for opportunities behind that complain.
Instead of just looking at the problem, I look at both the problem and the solution. This attitude completely changed the outlook of my life forever.
So, stop complaining too much. It’s a waste of time. Start looking for opportunities behind it. Execute!
7.) You are patient.
“Be in a rush to be patient. The only thing you should be rushing towards is greater patience.”
Patience is another key to becoming a massive success. Many people give up on their dreams simply because they are not willing to wait for it to happen.
Every successful entrepreneur knows that good things take time. It’s like a marathon, not a sprint. Success is not a get-rich quick scheme. It requires hardwork and countless amount of sacrifices for future gains. So, keep hustling and be patient.
In today’s article, I’m going to share with you the one skill which is important in order to become RICH.
Becoming RICH is a subjective matter as there are hundreds, if not thousands of ways to achieve it in these modern days. However, many would agree every success comes down to one important quality which is ‘Sacrifice’.
To put it simply, without ‘sacrifice’, ‘nothing’ can be ‘achieved’.
Without ‘sacrifice’, no ‘budget plan succeeds’.
Every ‘budget’ plan requires you to ‘cut down spending’.
So , say goodbye to those ‘expensive Starbucks’ drinks. Or to that delicious and healthy ‘Avocado toasts’.
Without ‘sacrifice’, no ‘investment’ can bear ‘profits’.
Every ‘investment’ begins with you having to ‘put aside money’ which you ‘don’t have access’ over a period of time.
Without ‘sacrifice’, no ‘self-discipline’ can be achieved too.
Every ‘self-discipline artist’ knows what it takes to achieve a ‘higher state’ of being able to ‘control’ self from ‘spending’ unnecessarily.
So, you’re probably wondering “How can one achieve a higher level of ‘sacrifice’?”
My short answer is to ‘Travel’.
When I say travel, not jet setting in ‘first class’ seats, or staying in a ‘5 star hotel’.
What I mean is to travel to isolated or remote areas where access to modern world is limited.
You see, the problem with human beings these days is not because we can’t live without technology.
That’s completely untrue.
Human beings have been living without much technology for most of our history. We have strive in wilderness back then, so why not today?
By exposing ourselves to such difficult conditions, we can learn to rely none other than ourselves. We learn that it takes some level of sacrifices to go through the day.
We start gather wood for fire & cooking. We gather water early in the morning to stay hydrated throughout the day. We even begin to forget the access to internet.
Guess what happens when you return? You’ll no longer see the benefits of owning things which are no longer essential to your survival. You’ve become accustom to it.
Personally, this is the best way to learn.
MY TWO CENT
While some argue this method is unnecessary. I argue, unless you’re a natural frugal person, I believe practical experience matters most and that some times, drastic actions are necessary to achieve higher level.
Once you’re accustom to a higher level of sacrifice, you’ll start living differently. You spend on things you only need & skip unnecessary spending without hesitation.
With such quality, any budget plan becomes easy to follow. And any investment becomes easier too as you are able to put more money into it.
That’s it from me. I hope you guys learn something from this. Let me know what you think in the comment below so we can start a healthy conversation about the topic.
