The world’s popular photo-sharing app, Instagram, is getting exciting. Whether you are working on your personal account or growing an e-commerce site, Instagram can bring in more people into your world to increase engagement, build a massive brand following and rocket your chances for a sale. Like any social media network, Instagram has proven how strong it is to build massive followers and to help establish brand visibility and awareness most especially for e-commerce businesses. If used effectively, this visual advertising channel can make your brand stand out from the rest of the competition.
Here is the list of clever ways to build a huge audience and monetize Instagram:
- Hashtags (#)
A maximum of 30 hashtags per post is allowed on Instagram. The right hashtags can make it easier for people to find your photos and expose it to a large and targeted audience. Research and record hashtags relevant to your business brands just like the way you do keyword research for a blog content. Engage your current audience and entice new ones with interesting and compelling photos of your brand. Don’t forget, sharing images related to your business brand can draw in more audience too!
Images can be fun with filters. Not only that, choosing the right filter can drive more views and engagement compared to unfiltered ones. With the right photos and choice of filters, Instagram will lead you to long-term engagement, likes, new interested followers and multiplied sales.
- Post consistently at the Right Time
Instagram accounts with an average of a 2-3 post a day tend to have the highest number of fans. The key? Post often on the best times of the day and the best days of the week to get the best results. Posts that are shared on a regular basis tend to pick up good engagement and have a tendency to appear on top of your follower’s feeds.
