Instagram is HOT!
There are over 400 million people from around the world on Instagram. 49% of users login daily. 28% of users login multiple times a day. And on average 70 million images are posted daily. So if you think your ideal customer or client isn’t just waiting for your picture to show up on their feed, you are dead wrong!
Last year I started marketing on Instagram. And now it accounts for about 90% of my leads and sales for my business.
I have created what I call the 5-5-5 Instagram Engagement Formula.
Here it is: Grab yourself a timer… Spend 5 minutes going through your followers and engaging on their pictures.
Simply like 3 images and leave 1 relevant comment (and be sure to tag their username by using @username so they get a notification) for each follower.
Just be random. Think of this step as a warm up. Plus the benefit is, if they haven’t checked out your profile recently they will.
Spend the next 5 minutes by doing a search for a hashtag your ideal client or customer would use in their post. Then quickly scroll down the results and click like for each image. You will be shocked how many images you can like in 5 minutes.
Finally, spend the last 5 minutes by doing a search for a different hashtag your ideal client or customer would use in their posts. Then like 3 of their images and leave 1 relevant comment (with their username acknowledged) on people you do not follow.
They will see this, check out your profile, interact on your images and follow you.
Simple right? If you have more time, you can always repeat.
If you do this daily, (it only takes 15 minutes) you’ll be amazed how quickly your following and engagement will go up on each post. If you liked this tip, and want more let’s connect!!! Follow me on Instagram at http://Instagram.com/RobinSmith2007
