In the past year, Instagram has become a real force to be reckoned with in the marketing world.
Fill out your bio with all the right information – This includes your contact information, what you post about and where you’re from. Add in a few keywords and a couple of hashtags.
Post regularly – To grow follower numbers, make sure you are publishing one quality photo every day.
Take good photos – Make sure your images are of the best quality with attractive effects.
Use relevant hashtags – Familiarise yourself with the best ones to do with your field of interest and make sure you are including them in every single post.
Engage with your followers – Make time every single day to engage with your followers or anyone involved in your industry by commenting on and liking images. People will be drawn to check out your account and, hopefully, join your loyal rank of followers.
Now it’s time to start making money.
Affiliate Marketing – With Instagram, you post attractive images highlighting their products and drive sales through your affiliate URL (this should be provided by your affiliate).
Create Sponsored Posts (Find Sponsors!) – In a nutshell, a piece of sponsored content on Instagram is a photo or video that highlights a product or a brand. These posts are accompanied by captions that may include branded hashtags, @mentions, or links. However, it’s important that any brands or products you promote are a good fit for your own personal image on Instagram.
Sell Your Photos – If you’re a professional (or amateur but keen!) photographer, Instagram is a great way to advertise and sell your shots to either individuals or agencies. Add a watermark to your snaps and use the captions to list all selling details in a concise manner. Use appropriate hashtags and get a conversation going with influential photography agencies.
