Here are 7 Free Tips for accelerating growth with Instagram Marketing
1. Define your Audience
You cannot appeal to every viewer on the world wide web. You will want to figure out who you want your audience to be. This will help you create content that will draw them in, and keep their attention. This is important for algorithms and ad sponsoring. Once you know your market, you will be able to direct valuable marketing content directly at your desired audience.
2. Optimize your Profile
You need to make an amazing first impression with your bio on Instagram. You will have very little space to wow viewers and get them hooked on your brand. You will want to make sure that they know why they should follow you, make it count because space is limited even with the additional fields to tell about your brand. These include your name, username, contact info, and a few other things.
3. Look to Your Competitors
Stalk your competitor's pages and see what they are doing, how they are appealing to their audience. You will want to see what sets them apart for you, and what their followers are like. Follow them and see what they do daily, what their content is and the hashtags that they may be using to attract more views.
4. Ask Yourself if You Would Be Interested in Your Feed
It is going to take work on your part to gain a following and keep people interested. You will need to keep creating interesting content to post daily, and possibly several times a day. You will want to create posts that show quality by creating unique angles, images, and specific content. This is going to take time, research and setting up the scene.
5. Use Paid Ads
Instagram has rapidly grown and is continuing to grow at a rapid rate. It has more users than any other social media platform. This is creating an amazing basis to find a large audience. You can have assurance by using their paid ads to reach a large audience quickly. Without paid advertising, your audience will be limited to your followers, meaning that your new posts, and updates will not reach beyond your followers. Hashtags work but not as well as paid ads.
6. Respond to Comments and Direct Messages
Keeping responses to comments limited to meaningful comments and direct messages quick and meaningful will be essential to your success. You don't want to feed into negativity and give people something bad to spread around. Keep your responses polite and meaningful will show your audience that you are professional and serious about your business.
7. Use Hashtags Wisely
Using hashtags will help you gain discoverability. You will not want to flood your posts with hashtags, and you will want to limit your hashtags so that you don't look like a spambot. It is important that you use relevant hashtags that will help keep followers from blocking your hashtags. Keep hashtags directly related to your content, and niche.
