Ways To Grow on An Instagram Account
- Use Hashtags: Using hashtags such as #feetnation is a great way to get your content shown in the Instagram search. When someone types in the hashtags that are used in your post it’s a good chance your photos might show up. As of right now, I use between 25 to 30 hashtags. Currently, on Instagram, the max hashtags you can use per post is 30.
- Update Your Bio: Make sure to let visitors know who you are and what you do. By putting who you are and what you do in your bio it will help give the visitors more information about you and your page. It can also help build trust and building trust will help you get more sales.
- Use Professional Images: Instagram is a visual platform so the images and the quality of the images that you post matter. If you post up low- quality photos then most people will pass on your profile. So, make sure to post up high-quality images. If you aren’t sure where to find images of feet check out Canva and Pexels.
- Stay Consistent: One of the ways I grew my Instagram profile to over 14k followers is by staying consistent on the platform. Make sure to post every day if you can because it helps get your content shown in the Instagram feed more often. If you can’t post every day try to at least post every other day in the beginning.
- Connect With Others In Your Niche: Another great way to grow a profile on Instagram is by connecting with others in your niche. You can do this by searching through different hashtags that you are using and going directly to profiles of some members that are using the same hashtags. Comment on some of their photos to start a conversation. This can open up the door to new sponsorships and partnerships in your niche.

Tips On How To Be Successful When You Sell Feet Pics
1. Do Research
Be sure to research every platform when you are ready to sell feet pics. Like most industries, there are some scammers out there so make sure to look up the websites and companies on the Better Business Bureau website.
Look through the reviews of the companies to make sure they are legit. Remember if something seems too good to be true it probably is. To protect yourself make sure to read all reviews of each platform.
2. Take High-Quality Photos
The photos that you take can help grow this side hustle and take it to the next level. You can either take the photos yourself or hire a professional photographer.
If you take the photos yourself make sure to use a high-quality cell phone such as an iPhone or Android phone with a nice background. You can also use a top-notch camera and invest in some photography equipment.
3. Brand Your Photos
When you put your photos online make sure to brand them with your watermark. This will help prevent people from stealing your photos online.
4. Don’t Sell Photos Until You Receive Payment
Make sure to always receive payment before you send your photos online. If someone wants a sample photo you can send in one with a huge watermark over the photo. This will help prevent people from stealing your photos online.
5. Create Business Accounts
When you start to sell your feet pics online make sure to create business accounts on all social media platforms and use a business email account to communicate with customers.
One of the best platforms to use to collect payment is PayPal. Platforms such as Cashapp and Venmo make it easier for scammers to take your money and make it harder for you to request a refund. To protect yourself, set up a business account on all your platforms to add some level of protection for you and your business.
6. Stay Anonymous
Even though taking photos of your feet and selling them is a creative and legit side hustle, I still think it’s a great idea to remain anonymous if you don’t want people to know who you are. This will help keep your identity safe from scammers.
