ProfitsGram Review: How To Make Money From Instagram?

In this ProfitsGram Review, I'm going to walk you through step-by-step on what you should expect from this product and reveal to you whether it's really possible to make good money from Instagram by sharing photos.

ProfitsGram, also known as InstaProfitGram, claims to be a tool that can help you easily monetize your Instagram account and make up to $750 per week or even $200 per day.

I'm pretty skeptical about this product so I've purchased it myself and let me just offer you my honest first-hand experience and advice in this review...

ProfitsGram LIVE Video Walkthrough

Below is a video I did to walk you through what you're going to see before and after you purchase this product. Like I've said, I've purchased this product myself and this video recorded down my first-hand experience with ProfitsGram.

How to Make Money from ProfitsGram?


I've searched for many ProfitGram Reviews online and none of the reviewers seem to have purchased the product themselves. All the reviews are not really revealing the truth and are just blindly promoting it as an affiliate.

Today, I would like to reveal to you all the pros and cons about this product from my first-hand experience.

ProfitsGram is not related to Instagram at all. Mr. Trevor is just using "Instagram" as a way to promote his product.

ProfitsGram is simply an eBook (46 pages) teaching people how to make money by selling your own photos on another platform called "Twenty20".

This is a Stock Photography website which allows customers to purchase stock images and mobile photographers to sell their photos as "Royalty-Free Images" online.

This screenshot from the ProfitsGram Table of Content shows that it's all about how to utilize Twenty20, not IG!

As a seller on Twenty20, you'll get paid different percentage of commissions depending on the different plans and licenses.

What you need to do is just to setup a seller account and upload high quality images from your smartphone. All the images you upload will be vet by their team and will be available for sale very quickly.

That's ​basically what you'll be doing and how you're going to make money if you follow what ProfitsGram tells you.

As you can see, this has nothing related to Instagram. Mr. Trevor simply uses the name of "Instagram" as a way to promote this eBook because he assumed all Instagram users are passionate mobile photographers who like to take quality photos from their phone and upload them for sale.

Pros & Cons

The Good

1. Detailed Guidance on Photo Selling

ProfitsGram is an indeed thorough and detailed eBook on how to sell your photos online. It has quite a lot of information on the legal issues about online photo selling and many tips to help you better monetize your photos.

So, the advantage of this has nothing to do with making money on Instagram. What you'll learn is all about Twenty20 and the right way to sell photos there.​

2. 100% Money-Back Guarantee

ProfitsGram has a 100% Money Back Guarantee in 100 Days where you can get a full refund if you're not satisfied within 100 days.

This is pretty good because this shows that they are confident about their eBook.

The Bad

1. Has Nothing Directly Related to Instagram

​You would have known by now, ProfitsGram is simply using the name of "Instagram" to promote and sell their eBook. It has nothing related to Instagram.

What I feel is that they failed to deliver what they promised​ about "making money from your IG account". Seeing from this perspective, it is a scam.

In fact, ​it did explicitly mentioned that this eBook is all about making money from Twenty20, not Instagram:

2. Not Worth the Price

The cost of this eBook is USD$37.

It may seem quite affordable to most people because it's not something that costs a few hundred bucks.

However, after I've read through the whole eBook, I feel the value that it delivered does not worth $37.

Despite it has a thorough guide on selling photos online, all these information can be quite easily found online for free. There is also a "seller's guide" within the Twenty20 platform where you can learn more information about this topic.

So, this eBook doesn't worth the money in my opinion.​

3. Not a Good Long Term Full-Time Income

I believe you can really make some money by selling photos on Twenty20. However, what I feel about the platform is that it's quite competitive so it's not easy to make money.

You can make some good money if you're a very passionate mobile photographer who put a lot of time and effort into this. If not, you may just be earning a few bucks here and there.​ It's definitely not a good long-term money making method in my opinion.

Is ProfitsGram a Scam?

Judging from the fact that this product is totally misleading, I would consider it as a scam. It just creates a false hope and doesn't deliver to what it originally promised.

You can check out Twenty20 by yourself without this $37 guide.

Anyway, selling photos online will hardly make you rich or even earn any money.

Unless you're a super passionate and committed photographer, you'll not be earning anything much. It's just a waste of time. 

How I Make a Living Online...

Affiliate Marketing is my top recommended business model for anyone to make money online.

The reason is simple...

  • You don't have to recruit anyone to make money like what people usually do in MLM
  • You're building your own passive income stream for your financial freedom
  • It's Free to get started

In fact, with affiliate marketing...

I've personally created a 4-Figure Monthly Passive Income Stream and become financially independent at just 21 years old without any College degree or working experience!

Through my own hard work, I went from a broke restaurant waiter to living my dream laptop lifestyle in less than a year's time...

You’ve really done a great job by posting this review. I loved the way you represented it. Good job. keep it up !

    Jerry Huang - February 11, 2018

    Thank you Rimpy! Glad you like it 🙂

Stefan Vogt - August 21, 2017

Hi Mr. Huang
I am glad to have read this review. I too saw the recommendation for the program on Facebook. I now know that I did not act wrong by ignoring the post. To use the brand Instagram for their own product is quite misleading.
By the way. did you get your refund?
Thanks for the eye opener and have a great time.

    Jerry Huang - August 21, 2017

    Hey Stefan,
    Glad that your instinct was right and didn’t fall into the trap.

    I’ve already requested for a refund and I’m still waiting for their response. Will update the post when I get the refund.

    Thanks for reading 🙂

Hello Jerry,
Thanks for sharing this. You have done a really great job with this review by breaking it all down and making it so easy for your readers to read and understand. Your readers will definitely find your post very helpful. Thanks again for sharing!

    Jerry Huang - August 21, 2017

    Hey Norman,
    Thanks for your encouraging words. It’s my pleasure to help people 🙂

MERRY - August 20, 2017

Hi Jerry,
Thank you for your honest review. You have saved a few people some wasted money I am sure. I saw an article recently that had popped up for Instagram and photos. I think anyone who is good with a camera or iPhone or Galaxy could indeed make some money. Not a lot perhaps but some for sure.

Pixabay is another place where you can sell your photos but for the most part they are free. If you love the picture you can buy the creator a coffee which is how they earn.

Overall, much appreciated and so many people do exactly as what Mr. Dawson did – use a ‘tricky’ way to get your attention.
Awesome site you have too!

    Jerry Huang - August 20, 2017

    Hi Merry,
    Thanks for sharing about Pixabay. I often use that website with Pexels to find free stock images but I’ve never thought of being a photographer with them.

    I think the difference between Pixabay/Pexels and Twenty20 is that Pixabay & Pexels require professional photographers with professional cameras, while Twenty20 welcome a lot of mobile photographers to participate. That’s from my own experience.

    Anyway, thanks for reading and I’m glad you like it!

Thank you Jerry for this warning about the non use of Instagram in your review. 

I don’t use Instagram but may have considered it by reading the beginning. I have to say that I am glad I kept reading your post as it made me more aware of what Profits Gram actually is. 

I think the concept of the idea is good. If you like taking photos and you are good at it, this may be a good opportunity. However, as you’ve pointed out that it is not worth buying the book where you can find all the information online.

    Jerry Huang - August 20, 2017

    Hi Cheryl,

    Glad that you find this helpful. Twenty20 can really be a good place for passionate photographers to make some money despite the photography market is quite saturate and competitive. There’s no harm to try it out. Plus, it’s free!

    Anyway, if you want to try it out, I recommend you to just do some research online about the legal issues of selling photos online and also on what to look out for. I’m sure there are also a lot of guides online to help you best monetize your photos. So, there’s really no point to purchase this product.

Warren - August 19, 2017

Great review on a program that can make you a little money. I don’t think anyone will make a lot of money on this because the photograph market is hugely competitive….always has been. I’m sure we all have some photos we’re proud of and can sell, but not enough to sustain a steady income. Plus I like your estimation that $37 is a lot of money to pay for this information. You can probably get everything online for free.

    Jerry Huang - August 20, 2017

    Hi Warren,

    You’re right that the photograph market is competitive. You can make a few bucks on Twenty20 but it’s only possible for you to make good income if you’re a really passionate and dedicated photographer. In that case, there should be a lot more other ways to make money as a professional photographer.

Marios Tofarides - August 19, 2017


This is the first time I hear about this eBook. The review is thorough and I appreciate your sincerity.
There are two good things I learnt from this review:
1. I will not buy this ebook
2. I became aware of the Twenty20 platform. I can use that myself, or suggest it to photography enthusiasts 🙂


    Jerry Huang - August 19, 2017

    Hey Marios,

    Glad that this benefits you. I only came to know about Twenty20 from actually purchasing and reviewing ProfitsGram as well. Twenty20 is really a good platform to demonstrate your interest and hone your skills in photography. It is recommended for anyone who likes to take photos 🙂

Dave - August 19, 2017

Hey Jerry,

I had a friend who recommend the ebook to me telling that it would do a good job for me as I love Instagram.

But after reading this ebook, I realized that, just as you say, the value of the book is not worth $37. Are there any other similar programs that could be helpful to me?

    Jerry Huang - August 19, 2017

    Hi Dave,

    I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate as the best platform for you to make money online. But if you’re referring to programs that utilize Instagram, I don’t have any recommendation for now. 

steve - August 19, 2017

Nice article and great info. I appreciate your detailed review of the product.

Brandon - August 19, 2017

I’m glad I stumbled across your thorough review, Jerry. Someone tried to sell me this garbage product through email and straight away I thought it was a scam. Your article has saved me a lot of time and money, so I thank you for that. I better send my friend to this page as well because I think he got the same email. Thanks for your knowledge into all of this.

    Jerry Huang - August 19, 2017

    Hey Brandon,
    I’m really glad that this helps you and your friend a lot. Thanks for reading 🙂
