Every morning my girlfriend mediates for 10 minutes whilst I do my instagram marketing routine, it works perfectly so i thought id share it. I do this every day whenever i have some free time to slowly increase my engagement and create new connections. I don’t know much about instagram but went from getting 70-80 likes a post to now getting a maximum of 800.
Bare in mind my content has got a lot better but still, a lot of it is due to this!
Engage current followers
I spend the first few minutes just scrolling down my timeline and liking/commenting on any posts that i enjoy - all the people im following are from F/UF so most are either already following me, or targeting enough that i want them as a follower.
Go to your notifications and see any new followers - go to their page and like/comment or sometimes send them a dm thanking for the follow if they’re a cool page
Look through as many stories as you care to do and engage with them using the emojis that show up - super easy and gets people talking
Find new people
I go into my list of hashtags and go through a few and engage with the first 9 on the featured page and also the first 9 on the recently posted (as some on the featured are very old)
Side tip - MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW ALL THE HASHTAGS YOU USE - they show up in your normal feed so its super easy to engage if you’re doing it quickly without much attention!
I do a little F/UF - usually find an account in my niche with good engagement (the better ER of the account the better follow back ratio) and interact/follow 10-15 people that have a cool page - don’t bother following low quality/wrong niche accounts as you want your followers to be as specific as possible!
When i make a post i sit down and spend 10 minutes or so doing it, making sure i tag all the relevant people i want to see it (usually fashion brands for me) / use relevant hashtags / make sure everything is spelt correctly etc
I then interact with posts in the hashtags im going to use before my post, then post it and do the same after to create a bit of traction at the start
Another good tip is to go into your last post and like all the comments that people have left - this will send them a little notification and hopefully they’ll check out your profile and see your new post!
Hashtag research - I didn’t pay much attention as it sounded confusing but decided to dive into it and it pays off a lot. Haven’t gone viral or had tons of traffic from them but it definitely helps! I use a website called flick but will not go into detail on how to use it.
I kind of just rambled a bit so may tidy this up/add things i have forgot in the future!
Trying to give back to the community and get level 2 so i hope you enjoy
Yep his content is super high quality and crazy growth… inspiring. My photography is also great quality (its my job) but i don’t have the time to create extra content as im usually shooting for clients etc
but with that being said im definitely going to try it now we all have some free time and see what happens!
Exactly, this is the time where you can experiment. Hustle how much you can. I forgot to say to you, you can also start an Youtube channel and promote it on TT. Make long-form videos if you are confortable, BTS, getting clients, finding locations, shooting people.
