Instagram is a popular social media platform and it has over 10 billion active users worldwide.
Growing on Instagram is a not challenging task because if your content is amazing you will make a handsome income.
Some people make millions through Instagram and some fail to create a good amount of followers. You need to be active & consistent, posting single story or post would not be enough.
At-least 3 to 4 stories or posts must be shared in the initial phase, and you can even create attractive short videos. Along with this, use trending hashtags to reach more people.

If you have amazing content Pinterest will show best results to its users.
The major advantage of Pinterest is that it allows you to insert clickable links, so it becomes easier for you to place your affiliate link on your boards.

In my opinion, Medium is a platform that can drive huge traffic on your affiliate link and its major merit is you don’t have to work on SEO for your blogs, from day one Medium starts working on your posts to rank higher on search engines.
