Are you curious about how to Implement an SEO strategy into your Instagram account? Or how to increase your social media growth using SEO tactics? Then read on we will show you how to apply an SEO strategy into your Instagram account. Today we are going to be setting up your Instagram profile for success by implementing social media SEO Strategy and Tactics. Todays tools for success you will need are: 1. You’re laptop or phone handy with your Instagram account. 2. Internet access. Let’s get started! Defining your Instagram goals: “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” T Robbins.   In order to achieve success, we must define the goals that you are working towards accomplishing. Here are three questions to help you define your objectives for your social media strategy: 1. Are you trying to establish a brand? Or are you a brand? 2. Are you trying to or do you currently sell products? 3. Are you working towards becoming an influencer? If you are establishing a brand do you have a link to your website in the bio? If you are selling products is your Instagram account shoppable? Becoming an influencer? Do you have a blog or a means of capturing leads from your account? All of these goals have different call to actions. Ponder what your goals are and how your account can serve you better.

If so incorporate it into your profile. Give users a reason to increase their trust in your recommendations. 3. Where are you located? This is great to note because other influencers and brands will want to collaborate with other users in the same geographic location. You will also find that when people develop a relationship with your online profile users will feel more connected if you are in a similar geographic location. 4. How can you be reached? This is really important I know so many business users that do not have their contact details on Instagram. If you want to make sales or close brand deals you need to provide a way for users

Follow Friday; Gain Friends and Followers

January 7, 2019
Follow Friday, or Mom Crush Monday, is not as exclusive as it seems. Follow Friday…you’ve seen them everywhere; the gorgeous foursquare grid of mamas and their smiling cherubs. It seems like all these other mommies literally know everyone on Instagram, have they always been besties? No, no they haven’t. If you are wondering how to get the most followers on instagram! Then Follow Fridays is a great method. If you sit back in awe and wonder every time a “Follow Friday” rolls around and that one mom has another set of gorgeous women to parade in front of you while you on the other hand have never had a single woman to put on parade, don’t feel bad mama, we’ve all been there. (No seriously we have.) Everyone seems to think that these groups magically come together as a bunch of moms who have known each other forever, could give personal testimony to each other’s amazing moming skills, aaaaaaaand would probably even take a bullet for the lady pictured next to her. But because I’m here to shed some light on all things “Social Media Motherhood” let’s just burst that bubble right now. Most these women don’t know each other. We’re not on first name basis, we’re not besties in real life, we’ve never met before, and we’re probably not even following each other. There, I said it. Are you happy now? Shocked? Don’t be. Follow Fridays or Mom Crush Monday’s are a great way to reach out, meet new mommies, but also (potentially) gain some new followers. Let’s not even pretend that we’re all doing this because we just love each other so much. Follow Friday and Mom Crush Monday’s really are a great way to grow your network of mommy ‘friends’ but at the end of the day let’s just be honest and admit that they’re really about the hope of gaining a few new followers. Speaking of followers…How many will you gain? Well, that right there is the hard part friends. You may gain a couple hundred, or you may not get a single one. I’ve had both. It is especially hard to gage how much traffic you receive from Follow Friday’s once your page gets a little bigger and you start receiving regular followers daily; how many actually come from a Follow Friday no one really knows. But again, it can be a great way to make some new friends and reach a different audience. So, let’s get down to the actual business of it. How to Arrange a Follow Friday: Step 1) Ask 4 moms. Step 2) You’re done! Ha ha okay it’s a little more work than that, but in essence that’s it. Usually I message 4 moms to start (if I’m arranging the group), and then as you hear back with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ you can begin to ask more to fill the necessary spot. Also, there is no rules as to how many moms you can feature. 4 or 6 is typical (meaning there are 5 or 7 moms in the group;

Buy Instagram likes & reach top posts.

December 27, 2018
Looking to buy Instagram likes? Can it benefit your brand? Our article below addresses the benefits and opportunities that buying Instagram likes can have on your account.   What are Instagram likes? “why does it matter?” Good questions. Instagram is a different social media platform when it comes to social media engagement and post performance. One of the things I love most about the platform is that you don’t have to follow someone to like their post! You may be wondering how is that possible? How would you come across the post in the first place? Well there are several ways. You can: Follow via interest segments with #Hashtags. Discover users through the explore feed. Get noticed in the top 9 posts. ‘Likes’ matter because they’re often the first contact between your business and a new follower. This also helps determine how engaging and popular your post is. Posts that have a high level of engagement are deemed more likeable by Instagram and your chances increase to be featured in the explore page or on the top 9 posts. Yay! Benefits of buying Instagram likes. Buying Instagram likes can dramatically increase the engagement level per post. This deems you’re content as popular and increases your chances of ranking on the explore page and top posts. The Explore page What is it? Curated topics and personalised content that Instagram believes you will adore. This formula is based on your previous engagement patterns and popular content. Wired calls it, “the most honest place on the internet.” Why use it? Free publicity and brand advertising to your target audience! Placing high on the Explore tab can get you new followers and a steady flow of traffic. Woo! How to get on it Instagram uses these criteria to place content in the Explore tab: Content similar to what users engaged with Posts with high engagement Media from accounts similar to accounts the user already follows What does this mean? Keep your content to your niche. Don’t jump topics and have engaged posts. How to improve your chances Boost posts with powerlikes: This will give your posts an instant boost of likes in a timely manner. Instagram ranks not only the engagement of your post but how quickly it gets there too! Know your audience. Like: your target customer, their interests, and who they follow. Keep your content on track with the same theme and interests. Don’t switch from food blogging to fashion in a heart beat. Listen closely. Notice which posts of yours are most engaging to your audience. Curate similar content. Use hashtags. Use hashtags that are obtainable for you to reach the top 9 posts. What do bought Instagram likes look like? While not all likes are created equal they do in fact look the same. You can buy dead likes from accounts that are simply shells. This will not help your brand at all and possibly create brand damage as Instagram will downgrade your posts. Powerlikes are from real highly engaged accounts that have a high level of

Buy real Instagram followers – How to guide of growing your Instagram account

November 26, 2018
There are a lot of users out there that want to buy real Instagram followers. Why? When you buy real Instagram followers, you  boost your Instagram account. You’re not only validating the authenticity of your page, you are also opening doors to infinite reach. Not all Instagram followers are created equal We all want to increase our following so that we can grow a larger audience but not all followers are created equal. There are so many Instagram agencies out there where you can buy cheap followers. The problem with these Instagram followers is that will not engage with your account and they simply drop off. These types of accounts are damaging to your personal account because it lowers your engagement score and shows Instagram that users are not engaged with your content. OUCH! This means your post will not rank as well. Consequently, Instagram recently released a PR statement about reducing inauthentic activity on Instagram. Reducing Inauthentic Activity on Instagram Posted on November 19, 2018 Recently, we’ve seen accounts use third-party apps to artificially grow their audience. Every day people come to Instagram to have real experiences, including genuine interactions. It is our responsibility to ensure these experiences aren’t disrupted by inauthentic activity. Starting today, we will begin removing inauthentic likes, follows and comments from accounts that use third-party apps to boost their popularity. We’ve built machine learning tools to help identify accounts that use these services and remove the inauthentic activity. This type of behavior is bad for the community, and third-party apps that generate inauthentic likes, follows and comments violate our Community Guidelines and Terms of Use. What Instagram is doing about inauthentic activity We’re taking a number of steps to limit this kind of unwelcome behavior. Accounts we identify using these services will receive an in-app message alerting them that we have removed the inauthentic likes, follows and comments given by their account to others. We ask them to secure their account by changing their password. People who use these types of apps share their username and password, and their accounts are sometimes used by third-party apps for inauthentic likes, follows and comments. Not only does this introduce bad behavior into the Instagram community, it also makes these accounts less secure. Third party apps We also know some people may have unknowingly shared their login credentials with a third-party app. If you receive an in-app message, simply change your password to revoke their access to your account. These new measures will be ongoing, and accounts that continue to use third-party apps to grow their audience may see their Instagram experience impacted. Since the early days of Instagram, we have auto-detected and removed fake accounts to protect our community. Today’s update is just another step in keeping Instagram a vibrant community where people connect and share in authentic ways. We’ll have more updates in the coming weeks on additional measures we’re taking to tackle inauthentic activity on Instagram. What does this mean for you? It means that if you are buying cheap

How to become an Instagram Brand Ambassador

November 19, 2018
Sick of working on individual jobs for brands? Looking for a steady stream of income as an influencer? Then perhaps you should consider becoming an instagram brand ambassador! What’s a brand ambassador? A brand ambassador (also known as a corporate ambassador) is a person who is hired by a brand to represent them in a positive light. The aim of hiring the brand ambassador is to increase brand awareness, brand favorability and generate sales. Brand ambassadors are required to embody the corporate identity of the brand in appearance, demeanor, values and ethics. What can a brand ambassador do for you? Brand Ambassadors can: Widen your reach – Ambassadors in your niche already serve a large audience of people who are interested in the same things. By coordinating with them you’ll be able to reach a much wider range of people who have not yet heard of your product or service. Humanize your brand – Consumers are able to relate more with a human face than a faceless brand is. Being able to connect a face with a brand allows people to relate more, especially when authenticity comes into question. Increase your presence online – You’re not able to promote your brand 24/7 around the globe, so having people out there releasing content when you aren’t is invaluable. Ambassadors will be able to give you that extra boost in different time zones, languages, and markets. A great example of a local ambassador program is LuLu Lemon. They employ local brand ambassadors in the Yoga and fitness fields to embody their products. LuLu Lemon Ambassadors are generally leading instructors in the area. This gives them a large influence over fitness consumers in the local area. How to become brand ambassador In order to become a successful brand ambassador you will need to learn how to sell yourself! 1. Sell Yourself. This can be uncomfortable for some people. A brand will be looking for someone who best represents its values and personality. You need to let the brand know what makes you a good fit. How can you do this? You need to make sure that the content you are creating organically fits with the brands you are pitching. Olivia Rink always has her hair on point! If you go through her feed you will see that she has multiple reoccurring posts about Kerastase.  She never has a hair out of place and that long blonde main we would all die for. This makes her the perfect ambassador for the brand. If you are a loyal supporter of a brand — such as being a past customer or an engaged follower who likes and shares the brand’s posts on a regular basis — you’ll be sure to score some bonus points. If you look at Aliviadandrea her account is all about fitness, health and flexibility. Alivia is a Nike partner and you can see how her feed authentically represents Nikes health and fitness values.  2. Get a media kit. Part of selling yourself is having a killer media kit that you can send to brands. This is your

The Instagram Story Viewer – How the algorithm works

November 13, 2018
Are you wondering how to get your brand on the top of the Instagram Story Viewer list? Or perhaps you wonder why your personal viewer is ranked a certain way. Today, I’m going to tell you exactly how and why Instagram places your story viewers in the order that it does. Over the past year Instagram has made many algorithm changed to improve the user experience. Allowing a tailored feed based on the users likes, interactions and engagement.  This meant removing the timely posts in our feed to popular posts. Here is how Instagram ranks the people viewing your Instagram stories: (Above is is stellar IG story creation by J. Crew) The people who appear at the top of your viewers list are the people who you interact with the most, not the other way around.   As you can see in the top right hand corner I LOVE lucky leo dancewear. It has more to do with your activity than your followers activity. The algorithm is curating a personalized feed by recognizing who you’re interacting with the most. This tells Instagram that this is the content you are most interested in therefor that is what will show up first on your Instagram Story Viewer? Why? They want to keep you on the platform for as long as they can. The instagram story viewer curation algorithm works on: Instagram accounts that you comment on the most Users stories that you view regularly People you DM The profiles you view most frequently Your feed is based on your activity, not theirs. Tips to increase Instagram Story views Tell a story! Seems simple right?  Just like a movie your story should tell a sequence of events for users to follow along with. Exciting stories that keep us coming back for more have a plot structure. You need to give the user a reason to come back and view the rest of your story. What will your story reveal? Plot diagram thanks to Story Board That.   2. Post Often and in Peak Times. Posting frequently throughout the day keeps your story at the top of user’s feed and posting when your users are most active will ensure more views for your story. To see the best times for you to post check out the analytics on your Instagram account. You will need to have a business profile in order to have this feature enabled. The insights are worth it! If you are still struggling with engagement you should check out: How I got 20k followers in 1 year and how you can too How I use hashtags to go viral on Instagram 3. Engage with others! Social media is about being social! Mention you’re followers or tag influencers. Post get 56% more engagement when they tag others! Just make sure it is relevant. There is nothing worse than being spam tagged all the time. Here is an example of Kapten and Son promoting a giveaways on Instagram stories with Bublebar. 4. Give a Behind the Scene story.
