5 Golden Tips
Here are some Golden Tips you can keep in mind if you’re also keen on a speedy rise on Instagram:
Golden Tip 1:
When you’re developing your own posting strategy, remember: if you’re looking at 3 pictures in a row on Instagram, the picture you post first is going to be the one that lands up on the right hand side.
Bear in mind that most people read from left to right, so if you’re telling a story in 3 posts, you actually start by posting the end of the story. Make sense?
In my mind this is a design flaw in Instagram, unless you’re used to reading Hebrew or Arabic. ;)
Golden Tip 2:
Connect, connect , connect… especially with influencers and Moms doing what you’re doing…
I went through the list of collaborators on my Pinterest board, Mompreneurs Unite and searched for them on Instagram. These are all Mom Entrepreneurs I’ve already connected with on Pinterest. Why not build the relationship with them on Instagram where we can engage more?
Golden Tip 3:
So far I’ve taken no heed of the “don’t follow more people than follow you” rule.
I might have to look at that at a later stage, if it becomes a “thing” but my process is working for me at the moment. Plus I hand-picked each and every one of the people I’m following so I’m not going to let them go that easily.
Recently I installed a handy app on my android phone that allows me to see who I'm following who isn't following me. It's called "Instafollow".
Golden Tip 4:
A great way to ensure that your organic website traffic also joins you on social media is to install the Milotree Pop Up. I’m using the free version and it’s working perfectly for me.
Golden Tip 5:
Another little trick I learnt that helps me on Instagram is how to re-order posts. If you’re using wordpress and would like to highlight a particular post that you posted ages ago, simply install the Post Types Order Plug-in. With this plug-in you can very simply re-order your posts so that the one you’re highlighting appears first on your home page.
