Tip #1. Stop stressing out about what you’re posting
This is the most important thing. If you can’t get this through your head and change your mindset, you’re not going to do well. Everyone’s like oh my God the lighting has to be perfect, I’ve gotta have makeup on.
Who cares? Just post! What you think will do well may not do well and unless you get that out of your head that everything isn’t going to be perfect. The moment you think it all has to be perfect, nothing is going to happen, you’re barely going to post.
But the moment you’re okay with posting whatever, you’ll post six, seven, eight different things and you’ll find out what’s working.
Tip #2. Stop posting the stuff that’s not working.
You’re in a rut. in which you keep posting the same type of stuff, it’s not getting traction, but yet you keep posting it.
If the same stuff isn’t working to grow your follower count you shouldn’t post it.
Tip #3. Start posting videos.
We found that whether it’s a story or you’re just posting on your wall or in your feed, a video always does better than text. It creates way more engagement.
Stop posting just text based images. You can still do them every once in a while, but videos are the key both in your stories and in your feed.
And what you’ll find is the more videos you post, the better off you’re going to end up doing. Instagram and Facebook, Facebook which is Instagram’s parent company, they’re all about videos these days.
If you go on any fan page you see someone post a video versus someone posting an image, you’ll notice that the video gets way more traction. It’s because Facebook prefers videos right now and so does Instagram because they’re trying to crush every other video platform out there.
For that reason you need to be posting videos.
Tip #4. Get creative.
I did an image on my Instagram telling people double tap this if you’re going to hit your goals or crush your goals in 2019. Did extremely well. Why did it do so well? It’s because I got creative and you can do the same thing.
Doing clever things like telling people to double tap if they’re going to achieve this or do that or telling people to comment below, that’ll boost your engagement and spread your content out so more people start seeing it.
Tip #5. Care about your audience.
Instagram is a social network. Why aren’t you responding to every single comment?
That shows you care. Why should someone follow you if you’re too lazy to respond to their comments?
So care about your audience. If you don’t care you shouldn’t be on the social web.
Tip #6. Post more frequently.
When it comes to images or on your main feed, post at least once every three hours. Ideally you shouldn’t be posting every hour, every two roughly once every three hours is the right amount.
You can even do once every six hours, that’s fine but one every three to six hours is a sweet spot.
When it comes to stories, you should be pushing out at least nine stories a day. I know that sounds crazy but if you do that you’re going to get way more engagement.
Tip #7. It’s all about the micro content.
What I mean by micro content is everyone’s trying to like stage their photo shoots, their Instagram videos all this kind of stuff. Just be yourself!
Bust out your phone, talk for 20-30 minutes and chop that up into little bite size clips and put that over your Instagram over time. You give a speech at a conference, chop that up and put that on Instagram live or six or seven times.
Take the big piece of content that you have, again chop it up and put that all over Instagram. People love micro content and when you’re creating it try to be realistic and be more like your real self, not the Instagram or the Photoshop version of yourself.
People want to connect with humans, they don’t want to connect with other perfect people they can’t relate to.
