All that aside your brand’s image is everything, and if your brand doesn’t have multiple thousands of followers who you can offer deals to and a competitor does, they will sell more than you because of it.
We will be speaking about how to grow on Instagram, how to use it for your business, and lastly why you should start growing today!
Step One: Find Pages Like Yours
To start building your page on Instagram you need to start by finding successful accounts like yours. You can use popular accounts, locations, and hashtags to start targeting in on who is your ideal following. Start by going to the search tab on Instagram and searching for pages related to your brand’s niche.
Only targeting similar interests will improve the overall results you achieve from our methods later on. To start to aim for accounts that have at least 1,000 followers or more to get a decent pool of users. If possible it is best practice to get accounts with 5,000+ followers to get optimal results.
Source as many Instagram accounts, hashtags, and locations that you can possibly find locally then expand your search to local cities and states, then keep going. The more accounts you can find the better, this will directly help you grow on Instagram later on.
Once you have around at least 20-30 pages find the 5-15 accounts and hashtags that get the highest engagement rates and have the most followers. These will be used for targeting and reaching out to the followers of these pages to help grow your brand’s image.
Step Two: Get Their Attention
The number one proven way to begin growing on Instagram is by using the algorithm to your advantage.
It is a fact that Instagram accounts who engage more with their followers and other pages will receive higher engagement rates and followers.
This is because Instagram appreciates that your account is apart of its community and will reward you for it.
Engage with and follow each user who interacts or follows your target accounts, locations, and hashtags as much as possible.
You are engaging with these accounts to help expand your current networks and get more people on board with your brand. This can be a massive task for a single person to do and hiring a team for just your social media doesn’t make financial sense.
Most people on average spend around 2-4 hours per day using Instagram for their business.
Spending this much time on Instagram isn’t the easiest thing to do with all the other responsibilities as a business owner.
The worst part is even if you could only do it for this amount of time every day it could take you very long to grow or make sales.
If you are looking for a solution to this problem, Spinlead can help!
We use custom software to run these operations 24/7 so your brand can grow on Instagram and outreach as much as possible per day.
This gives you more time to focus on important tasks like creating content or making more sales. Not only is this more effective due to the fact its running day and night 24/7, but the cost per month is dramatically less than paying someone to come in person to do the same.
The more time your social media profile is on outreach mode the better so you can interact with thousands of users per day and grow your brand awareness. This is one of the cheapest ways to get your brand more awareness compared to running paid advertising campaigns on Facebook or YouTube.
Step Three: Gain Brand Awarenes
Now that you have liked and followed their page they will get a notification. Once they see your notification they will head over to your page and see what you have to offer. Because your targeting was selective to only pages within your niche some of those followers will stay and follow your page.
This process is repeated thousands of times within your target pages per day to increase the amount of local active followers you have at your disposal.
The best way nowadays to promote your brand’s image is through platforms like Instagram due to how visual it is.
If you can get thousands of followers who know your brand, what offers you currently have, and where they can sign up then you will have a direct advantage over your competitor who doesn’t have the same following.
The more you do this over the period of the month the more results you will see from Instagram.
Again it can be extremely hard to constantly outreach so if you are struggling to keep this up then scroll down to start using our Instagram growth service.
Step Four: Utilize Your Organic Growth
Now that you are getting hundreds of active followers per day you can start targeting them through many different methods.
The best way to start making extra sales and revenue once your following has been established is by creating custom offers for your following. This is a very simple and extremely effective way of converting your social following to more revenue for your business.
Because your Instagram has grown to thousands of followers you will now be able to send them direct messages promoting your business/service. This can be very powerful and personal if the messages sent are done correctly. These alone will bring in a massive return for your efforts.
More importantly, however, would be to post custom offers that help promote any discounts or deals you currently have going on. This getting seen by thousands of people per day will make sure you stay competitive and ahead of the competition in 2019 by growing your Instagram page.
By sending out direct messages you will not only be able to make more revenue from the platform but you will also be able to engage with your new followers.
The more engaged they are the more likely they are to keep engaging with your Instagram page long term.
Be sure to always message your new followers and you will consistently grow and make more revenue from Instagram.
Bonus Tips And Statistics
When you post on Instagram it is important to bring engagement to get the most out of your post. Here are a few ways you can improve the amount of engagement your Instagram posts get!
Even though Instagram lets you use up to 30 hashtags research has shown that 11 is the optimal amount. From our personal experience on Instagram, we agree and use between 5-15 hashtags per post depending on the day and time.
To speak about the optimal time to post it seems to be different for most brands as every brand has a different demographic. Even with that fact being stated here are the best times according to The Expert Voice.
- Sunday: 5:00 p.m.
- Monday: 7:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m.
