|Section 1: Welcome Message- Instagram Growth Hacking Course Overview|
|Section 2: Capture the Data- Installing Free Link Tracking for Measuring Effectiveness|
In this lesson, I cover how you can easily set up link tracking by creating a free custom URL to use in your Instagram Profile.
The free service I use is www.clickmeter.com , but you can use any link tracking system that you are familiar with. I have absolutely zero affiliation with ClickMeter.com, I just use their product because it is free.
1) Go to Clickmeter.com and register for an account.
2) Setup a new campaign- name it something meaningful.
3) Create a new tracking link
4) Give the Vanity URL a meaningful name. Example: instead of 34.gs/fapoiwn23r435 (Random and Untrustworthy) go with the name of your instagram account, or website, such as http://34.gs/styleandpose
5) Save the Link
6) Copy and paste that link into your Instagram Profile (under website)
Viola- now anytime someone clicks on your profile URL to check out your website or blog, you can track that activity from within clickmeter.com's dashboard.
Why are we doing this? The point of creating a tracking link is because we want to measure the impact and "LIFT" of our marketing activities. So if we are going to be spending time building up our followers, we want to make sure that we are targeting the right types of followers that are actually Clicking Through to our Website in order to make a purchase. Let's say that once you have my system for growing your instagram account setup, that after one month you notice a growth in followers, but barely any clicks to your website. At that point, you would want to begin making some adjustments to the types of users that you follow, posts that you like, and comments that you make. Perhaps you start testing out different types of users or target a new set of hashtags. Then you can measure the impact of that change over the next 90 days. Rinse and repeat until you find the right audience.
|Section 3: Hashtag Method & Google Boolean Search Hack|
In this section, there are two main lectures that cover "White Hat" methods for "Growth Hacking" our Instagram Followers. Both of these methods are 100% effective, however, they can be quite time consuming. But, the purpose of going over these manual methods is to get into the right state of mind for the next section when we cover Instagram Growth Automation.
In this lesson, i cover the ways that hashtags are currently used on Instagram, both as a means to properly label your content and posts, as well as hashtags that your potential customers might be using. The point is that Hashtags are a powerful way to get into the mind of the consumer, as you know they are searching or defining a moment very specifically.
So for example, I am working with a client styleandpose.com that sells bridesmaid dresses. The goal for them is to obviously sell more bridesmaid dresses. Thankfully they have some decent lifestyle product photography, and they are uploading that content to Instagram regularly. However, you are only fighting half the battle of discovery when you include all of the relevant hashtags on your pics. That will help with exposure for when other people are searching Instagram by Hashtags. But that isn't the whole story. Building your Instagram following also requires OutBound Marketing efforts, and that means seeking out the people you would want as followers and then engaging with them: Liking their photos, commenting, and following. Therefore, one of the best ways to find potential customers for styleandpose.com is to target Newly Engaged women. In this lesson, I demonstrate what the Instagram Hashtag method means by looking up posts with the hashtag
The reason that I chose this hashtag is that we know that it was likely posted by a woman that has just recently got engaged, which means they are likely entering into the planning process for their wedding and "AHA" they are going to need "Bridesmaid Dresses". Throughout the lesson I give tips on which posts to look for specifically, and then I clicked through to show some examples of the types of comments to make, and even followed a few of the accounts. The goal is not to come across spammy or salesy, rather we want to simply spark conversation and get that person to click through to our Instagram Proflie, and "BOOM" now we have them in our Marketing Funnel.
Feel free to message me, and I can help you brainstorm some ideas for potential keywords that your customers may be using on Instagram.
In this lecture, I cover my favorite hack, the Google Boolean Search method. Google is really good for search, in case you hadn't noticed. But what you probably didn't realize is that the search capabilities go much further than simply typing in a few keywords.
Here we go over how to properly enter targeted Boolean searches in order to find the exact Instagram Accounts that are most likely to serve our needs, like Bloggers, Influencers, and potential customers. Because in order to grow our following, we need to align ourselves with all types of people that are willing to share our brand.
Now Boolean just references the terms AND, OR, and NOT, but with this method I typically just use the " + " (AND) operator in my searches. However, the others can be used should you find that the result set that you are working with is much too large and you need to get more specific.
The main point is this, here is what needs to be typed into Google
site:instagram.com (this works for any domain actually, so twitter.com or zappos.com) What you are telling google is that I want you to only search for pages on this domain. Also, you can add other identifiers like "beauty" or "email" into the search( site:instagram.com "beauty" AND "email") to pull in any pages on instagram that have beauty and email on the page.
inurl:blog Including this along with your "site:" search allows you to pull back results of pages on the target domain that are also targeting your desired keyword like "blog" in this example.
So you could see these both together in the same search: site:instagram.com inurl:blog
|Section 4: Instagram Growth Automation- Turning on the Traffic Machine|
This lecture covers how to setup and use automation software for 24/7 Instagram growth.
I am not affiliated with this company in any way. It does cost money to use, they have different packages available, I pay $9.99 per 30 days.
*Disclaimer- Instagram does not condone the use of third party software as outlined in their terms of service. However this program and their algorithms make this 99% safe to use. I use it, I recommend my clients use it, because frankly this is exactly what your competitors are doing right now to eat your lunch and grow their instagram accounts. I just want to make sure that anybody that wants to get into this does so with both eyes open. If your account were to get flagged somehow, it runs the risk of account suspension for instance.
Recommendation- if you are uncomfortable signing up for the product you can try two things- 1) The program offers a 3 day free trial. 2) Use a different instagram account with a handle that you wouldn't mind losing.
Now, go crush it.
