How to earn with Instagram in-stream video ads
When you monetise content on Instagram, you are giving brands the ability to promote themselves within the videos you create.
How much you earn will be based on the number of views your video generates (aka monetisable plays).
You’ll get 55% of the ad revenue generated per view that will be paid monthly. Once ads have been enabled, new monetisation metrics can be found in Insights.
In just a few taps, you can turn on monetisation and start earning on your Instagram videos.
Step 1: Go to your “Account settings”. From here, tap “Creator”, then “In-stream video ads”.
Step 2: Tap “Get Started”, read and agree to the terms, toggle to “Allow monetisation” on your existing Instagram videos, then tap “Continue” to finish.
Set up direct deposit
To set up direct deposit, you’ll need your SSN or EIN number and bank or PayPal information handy. Make sure that you first enter your payout info during onboarding. You can also change your info in “Settings”.
