🤔 How to Sell on Instagram Without an Ecom Shop
Or, how 9 entrepreneurs sell on Instagram…without an ecom shop. (Thanks, Neil)
Instagram should be one big red dot on your radar.
Or because Neil Patel generated $332,640 in three months.
Also, because it’s not that hard too. Afterall, you don’t need to spend the time building out a store when you can be building out an Instagram page instead.
Here are the first 3 of 9 ways you can start selling on IG:
1. Notify People that Your Instagram is Shoppable, like Artifacia
You need to let your followers know your feed’s shoppable and it can be as simple as posting an image.
2. Sell on Instagram by Allowing Users to Pay via WhatsApp and BK Store
Traditional posts require you to link back to an ecommerce store or some other form of a shop URL.
Well, now you can just get people to pay on WhatsApp – that’s what BK store does.
3. Upload a Gallery of Product Images, like Nordstrom
If you don’t want your product images lost in the crowd you can use a tool like Like2Buy.
What does it do?
Simple. It’s just a link in bio solution where “your fans can browse your shoppable Instagram feed, read your stories, make a purchase or take any action you wish.”
Or in other words – it’s an Instagram storefront. A replacement for your Shopify store, in a sense.
See how Nordstrom does it, just add a link in your bio.

🏎️ Lexus Made a Car Just for Gamers
Everyone’s trying to get to hold a piece of the gamer market and Lexus built this one “Gamers’ IS” in a partnership with Twitch.
The Toyota-owned luxury brand revealed a modified version of the IS 350 F Sport sedan dressed up with gamer-friendly features.
- A custom-built gaming PC in the trunk
- High-def curved monitor in the passenger seat
- Retarctable keyboard and mouse platform
- But wait, there’s more! 3D-printed game controller
To build the gaming car, Lexus worked with a popular Twitch streamer who goes by the name Fuslie.
She hosted a livestream that drew more than 554,000 unique viewers who voted on features to include in the car, like a gaming-themed exterior wrap and a “Neon Tokyo” interior style which Lexus describes as “an electrified, neuroon-exploding Japanese pop art aesthetic.”
Some 20 people were involved in making this project happen – concept artists, designers, 3D modelers, electrical and structural engineers, metal fabricators, craftsmen, artists, custom upholsterers and computer technicians.

FEATURED STM THREAD:
The Wild Boars Return To STM!
Big news this week! We crossed the 50.000 threads mark on STM and the one carrying this symbolic number has been started by one of the most popular forum members Timotej a.k.a. “wakeboarder”.
Timotej has started several great threads on the forum, each one of them packed with valuable information and the latest one is no exception. Many of you remember his “wild boar liquidator” follow along, where he introduced a simple product made by his father: a wild boar attractant for hunters.
What started as a side-product of his father’s hobby, turned into a multi-million dollar operation, just two short years later. And it all started on STM, where Timotej came to ask for help.
Using his own words:
“Two years ago I opened a follow along Wild Boar Liquidator & wakeboard JV and at the beginning I definitely didn’t think the project would become so big.
I’m confident to say that Black Fire is one of the fastest, if not the fastest growing hunting brand in Europe. At the moment we’re doing low-mid six figures a month and I believe this is just the beginning.”
Want to know what they did, how they did it and what helped them the most to score some really high profile business clients? It’s all in the thread!
Stay tuned for the next edition of MRKTRS WKLY.
