If you are looking to create an extra stream of income online with little or no capital should consider starting a Page Management Business on Instagram.
Instagram is a social media platform where over one billion users connect and share content. Because it takes time to create and place content on the social media platform, individuals, celebrities and businesses usually hire people to do it for them.
So if you naturally love spending time on Instagram, you can actually get paid for doing so.
Instagram Page Managers are specialized Social Media Professionals. They create and post content as well as formulate marketing strategies for products and businesses on social media. They also communicate with and attend to potential and current customers on Instagram. They can be fully employed by one business or they can choose to work for multiple clients as a freelancer.
Yes! Instagram Page Managers can work from home! In fact, working from home gives them more flexibility and freedom because they can work from any location and manage multiple business pages. The people who do this are also known as Instagram Virtual Assistants (IGVAs).
