Have you ever considered making money by selling your Instagram pictures? Most likely not, since the pictures most users post are usually either selfies or pictures of their delicious lunch.
According to a recent article by Forbes, Instagram user Daniel Arnold changed this trend completely by selling his pictures for one day. In return, he made an impressive total of $15,000. And before we tell you just exactly how he did that, check out his amazing photography on his Instagram page.
In his post, Arnold wrote,
Hello, I just turned 34 this second. For one day only I am selling 4×6 prints of whatever you want from my Instagram archive for $150 each. I swear I will never sell anything this cheap again. If you’re interested, send a screenshot of the photo(s) of your choice to email@example.com (one d) and I will send a paypal invoice, followed by a signed print. Easy peasy. Happy my birthday. I love you truly.
And although many viewers could have laughed at his post, many users took advantage of the offer and Arnold received massive amounts of requests. One customer was even willing to pay him one thousand dollars for each photo that held over one thousand likes.
On top of all this, a couple years ago Arnold was actually named the best photographer on Instagram by Gawker. It looks like he may still be holding the “best photographer” title after this $15,000 stunt.
