One of the questions I’m asked the most about Instagram is “where do I start”? And I get it. It can feel intimidating, overwhelming and just plain confusing when you’re starting out on a new social media platform. And even more so when you’re working out how to use it effectively for your business.
Today, I’m sharing how I would grow my Instagram if I were starting from scratch – including what I’d focus on and forget – some of these might surprise you!
1. Get yourself on video.
It’s the QUICKEST way to build connection with your audience – and position yourself as the expert you are! Instagram makes it EASY – filters 😉, Stories, Live, Instagram TV. The tools are waiting for you – use them!
2. Search relevant hashtags and engage.
When I started my business in #ballarat, I built relationships with others and attracted new clients purely by genuinely engaging with the posts and accounts using that hashtag!
3. Give ridiculous value.
Don’t just post to tick a box. Share content that people can’t help but tell a friend about. Forget about watching that follower number and get to work on actually creating content worth following!
