If your business is on par with cooking, travel, or eCommerce, you can post awesome and breathtaking sceneries to captivate your readers into purchasing your product or services.
It’s about time to let go of long-based articles and start propagating your content in other mediums. We recommend you create stunning images, infographics, gifs, and videos to promote your brand.
3. Hashtags In Comments
Don’t forget the power of hashtags. If you’re going to post or publish something, incorporate hashtags with them. Hashtags are a powerful tool to help readers find you quicker. We recommend you used popular hashtags since many followers are already using that. And if a new user decided to check the hashtags if they want to discover new things, your posts will pop up right away, making it easier for the readers to see what you’re up to.
4. Marketing Campaigns For Contests
Another great way of attracting your Instagram followers is a contest. Users love contests as they all wanted to get something without paying anything in return. You can easily gain more followers, likes, shares, and posts as your followers are likely to join your contest just to get something they want. We recommend you used the products that sell well (or highly in demand) as your marketing price as users will more likely to participate.
Aside from that, this is also the perfect opportunity for you to utilize the connection you have with other influencers in your field of expertise. Kindly ask them to promote your contest to their followers. If you’re already close with an influencer, then you might be in luck as they will most likely volunteer to promote it to their followers without requesting for any payments.
While other influencers would exchange the exposure for something in return. In most cases, to test your product. Whatever it is, learn how to compromise and seal some deals as long as it’s good for your business and both parties are contented with the terms laid out.
