Instagram Success Tips

Instagram is one of the social platforms that you need to be leveraging for your business. This guide is a compilation of instagram hints and tips to help you build your instagram followers ethically.
We are building our Training Profits Instagram account with an initial target of 2000 – 3000 followers over the next few months.
I have spent the last month heavily researching how to ethically build your Instagram account without using any blackhat techniques that might get you banned. That means there is no automatically adding followers or buying followers or anything dodgy like that. Let’s get started!

Strategies for Instagram success:

  1. Use Hootsuite to schedule automatic posting (up to 30 posts on free account)
  2. When you post, use hashtags with between 200k-800k posts. Use up to 30 hashtags per post, or 10 per story. To check post count of a hashtag, Search for the hashtag, click Tags and you will see how many posts under the hashtag
  3. Check out http://hashtagify.me or http://instavast.com (free) for hashtag ideas. Save these to Notes in your phone for easy cut and past for future posts
  4. Post at 2am and 6am ASDT. (Australian time. Check timezones here
    https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html )
  5. Use Captivate app to follow people who liked a post in your niche / hashtag
  6. Use Followers app to unfollow people who don’t follow you back (after following 5000 people) You can follow up to 7000 people
  7. Once you get some of your posts on explore page, post 10 times a day (or as much as you can)
  8. Post a Story at least once every 24 hours. Simply share somebody else’s post or story (and tag them, also add a main hashtag). Click the paper plane icon, add your @ mention and hashtag #, then click Send To. Click Share next to your story, then click Add to highlights, choose your highlight (or add a new one) and click Done
  9. Your Instagram Page will take off between 2k – 5k followers.
  10. Once you have over 5000 followers, monetise your account:
    1. Shoutcart to sell shout outs on your Instagram page
    2. Dropship from AliExpress
    3. Sell merchandise (merch)
    4. Naturebacks on instagram is a good example of selling merch
  11. Post more videos (1 minute long). For videos, click cover when posting and choose the best cover
  12. Post slideshows, select multiple images icon when posting, then choose all images for slideshow
  13. Post viral content to try and get on explore page. For ideas, go to influencer’s pages in your category and look for stand out posts in terms of likes and comments
  14. Try the occasional spelling error to get more engagement
  15. Engage and collaborate with pages in your niche. E.g paid promos, shout outs etc. Every follower / number is a real human being
  16. Create engaging emotional content
  17. Use Instagram stories, Instagram live and Instagram tv
  18. Use Instagram DM (direct messages). DM people that commented and thank them
  19. Build a loyal strong community
  20. Use When to post app to find best times to post
  21. Create all new posts as a story also
  22. Comment for engagement E.g ask question. At least 4 word response
  23. Heart comments on relevant posts
  24. Have longer form micro blog like captions
  25. Rotate hash tags
  26. Post question posts
