I promised to share a tool which helps to build a massive following in Instagram in no time, but also in fact to find and engage with some actually relevant audiences.
It’s an automation tool which to my opinion eases the first introduction and sort of “opens the door”. Just make no mistake: you need to be personally involved from the point on where you get a response, otherwise this tool is in fact a complete waste of your money.
I’ve had an Instagram account for quite some time. A few weeks ago I found out that I can have multiple so I created the second profile for @NeatHomeBiz. It’s the one you find from the right margin, and if you want to follow me, I’d be delighted!
Next I bumped into this service, which I tested for a few days doing what everyone does: shooting mosquitos with a shogun.
You know what I got? Mosquitos.
But I admit that I was fooled by people who were talking about “targeting”. It just wasn’t the kind of targeting I had in mind, until I realized there really is another way.
So I started to run an experiment with this service and only after a few hours I knew I really like it a lot! It really does allow me to find people I really want to connect with, and communicate with them.
If they want to follow me – great! If not, whatever. Because here’s a big secret (familiar from for instance sports training):
Mosquitos don’t exactly make a business for a lot of people. In the internet marketing niche I’d say it’s not making a business for anyone. People do.
Pick Your #Tags
In Instagram the most popular tags are #follow4follow, #followme and #follow. You can get tons of followers just by adding one of those to your photo. Those followers use a bot like Instagress, so most likely they never even saw your image in person, but yes, they add quantity and may make you seem very popular.
Instagress finds you people to follow and automatically drops off comments and likes based on the tags you’ve chosen. It’s totally up to you what kind of comments you’re using.
It gives you some suggestions, such as Cool, Nice and Sweet, which in fact apply to pretty much anything published there, but lead to absolutely nothing. That’s the mosquito tactic.
If you want some interaction, you rather need to spark conversation by asking questions. To make them even remotely relevant I would tell you to keep your tags to a very minimum (one to three), but add a large variety of questions. I’ve also added CTA’s like “follow” to my comments. Those seem to work ok, “invitations” not so much.
The important step No #2 is to go back and continue the conversation if someone replies your question. It’s a very clear indicator that there’s in fact someone who shares your interest.
That’s the way Instagress has found me people I’m actually following because they share something of real value to me – the magic word of online marketing. It has also found me people who tag dog poo with #happy and #selfie tags.
It has a free 3-day trial, so if you’re audience is there you might as well give it a try.
