I depend on the internet for my business. So do many others. Since I sell products, I found that I can use social media to boost my brand and sell more. I simply get social with it in a business fashion and boost brand awareness using Instagram. You can do the same thing.
It all starts with having an account. Get that set up and pay attention to your profile. I personally keep my profile very brief and to the point. I include a call to action there so I can potentially get followers to sign up to my email list. That is where the gold really is.
First, you have to get people’s attention. In order to do that, you need to use vividly clear and colorful photos for your posts. Make them emotionally evocative so you really grab that attention. I keep the emotional charge positive and provocative so I can get people interested.
You can actually get automatic Instagram likes if you buy them from a service. While that may seem a little contrived, it is something that is often done by many users. I use this tactic when I have posts that I know are good but they are not getting much attention.
If you buy likes and followers, you can add those to your posts. It makes them appear more popular than they actually are. People are going to be more drawn to them that way, seeing that they are already liked and followed. That actually makes folks more comfortable and interested.
I use captions in a smart way. I make them witty, with clear calls to action so I can get people to interact. When they do and followers comment, I make it a point to respond. That is about engaging your followers so they know you are the real deal and will pay attention to them too.
I keep my captions brief and let the image do the talking. Over time, I found this works better than long captions. After all, Instagram is all about the images, not so much the words. When you have strong images, they mostly speak for themselves.
If I need to get a lot of automatic likes, I just buy them and apply them to the posts I think they need to go on. It does boost the numbers of real followers over time. Just be judicious with this, as it does not need to be the only way you gain more likes and followers.
Post often but do not post too often. I find that once a day is good with no more than two posts in a day. That will keep people interested and following but it will not overwhelm them. Remember, they are also looking at other posts and following other users. I know I am not the only one. Keep that in mind.
Be smart with your posts and make them worth sharing. If you do that, you will gain a good following over time.
