Daniel Arnold, a photographer on Instagram, has earned more than $15 thousand dollars in a day. His Instagram stream has more than 1,300 photos and he has some 22,000 followers on Instagram. But he was living a very miserable life and prior to this idea, he had just $90 in his bank account.
He posted a message on Instagram on the even of his 34th birthday where he offered to sell some of his photos at $150 each. Here is the message he posted on Instagram:
Hello, I just turned 34 this second. For one day only I am selling 4×6 prints of whatever you want from my Instagram archive for $150 each. I swear I will never sell anything this cheap again. If you’re interested, send a screenshot of the photo(s) of your choice to firstname.lastname@example.org (one d) and I will send a paypal invoice, followed by a signed print. Easy peasy. Happy my birthday. I love you
And the response to this message and offer of selling his pictures was overwhelming and he got requests for $15,000. In fact he was offered $1,000 upfront by a buyer to send him all his pictures that had received more than 1,000 likes.
Originally he offered to sell only for one day but Arnold is considering fulfilling all the order that came after that time too because he says: “I’ve been eating toast three meals a day all February.”
