Instagram for Business

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is Instagram and how do I use it to market my business?

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. – Wikipedia

Instagram marketing is hot…hot…hot right now!

If you are not using Instagram marketing for your business you are truly missing out.

Did you know that Instagram has more interactions than FaceBook?  Oh and by the way Instagram does not limit who can see your content.

Instagram has grown faster than any other social site to date.  There are 300 Million Instagrammers!  Promoting products is key to this visual social site.

Want to know what to do next?

Here are 4 tips to get you started with Instagram marketing:

1.  Make sure to use your real name when signing up for an Instagram account.  You want people to be able to easily find you and your business.

2.  Have a nice professional picture in your profile.  Remember this is where you will have your first connection with a potential follower and you want to make a good impression.

3.  Create a bio that shows what you are about.  I used a hashtag (#) in my bio so if people are searching for #NetworkMarketing they can easily find me :)  Now you only have 150 characters so get to the point fast.  You also want to create a Call To Action in your bio so people know what to do.

4.  Put the link in your bio that you want your ideal customer to visit.  I use a capture page here to build my list :)

How To Create A Lead Magnet

 

 So what is a Lead Magnet?

A lead magnet is usually put on a capture page to entice your customers to solve a problem or issue that they have. You may want to give away a free eBook to help solve their problem or just to educate them.

In this way you will be exchanging some valuable information to them for their email address. You always want to lead with value!

How to go about creating the Lead Magnet:

The first step in creating a great lead sucking magnet is to identify who your ideal customer (also known as Avatar) is that you want to attract. I go into detail in this blog post “Have You Identified Your Ideal Customer Yet?”.  If you would like to review that and learn how it’s done.

Once you have identified your Avatar then you will know what types of problems they are having and address those on your capture page. You will usually find that there will be more that one issue they are having.

Only use one problem at a time. If you use more than one problem, it will be confusing to your potential customers.

 

Here is an example of a lead magnet that I created for my online marketing consulting business.

Been Spending More Online Than You Make? (Click on title to take a look)

Do you see the problem I am solving? (hint, the title). I am giving away access to my Integrity Networker Online Training site for free and step-by-step instructions for multiple streams of income in exchange for their name and email address.

Here is another example of a great lead magnet:

Frustrated Because There Is So Much To Learn? (Click on title to take a look)

Yep, the problem right in the title again! In this short video I empathize with the frustration of trying to learn all the marketing methods while trying to get your business up and running. How overwhelming it can become. I also talk about what information you will get if you opt in.

 

These are just a couple of examples of a Lead Magnet that converts like crazy for me. Take the time to identify your customer and then help them. It’s just that easy!

Attraction Marketing Formula

What is Attraction Marketing?

I get asked this often. When people ask me what I do…. I explain that I teach “attraction marketing” methods that I have learned and still use over the years.

Almost 10 years ago I started looking around online on how I might be able to make some money online. I had left my corporate job and was way too young to qualify for retirement.

So…

I started looking around online for a way to make money. There was plenty of information online back then (but not as much crap as now!).

I happened across a product by Mike Dillard called “Magnetic Sponsoring” and immediately purchased it.

OMG!

It was life changing for me. It really helped me understand all the things I was doing wrong. I haven’t made a cold call since J People call me!

If you would like to read a review that I wrote a few years ago just go here: “Magnetic Sponsoring [Review]” .

Now with that said, Mike is in the process of re-releasing an updated version on Amazon that I believe will be out sometime in the next couple of months.

My point in telling you this background story is that as most people in the network marketing industry have heard the term “attraction marketing” and many use this method to build their business today. Because it flat out works!

And the good news is (drum roll)…

The newest edition of Attraction Marketing Formula by Ferny Ceballos is released!!

I have gotten my hands on an advanced copy and I am here to tell you that it is awesome.

Each chapter is a step by step process to really expand your business now. Ferny has used this as a manual to build his No Excuses business. Many of his students have gone on to make at least 6 figure incomes.

There are a few months left in this calendar year. Take advantage of this wonderful resource to finishing this year with a bang and position your success for 2015.

If you are still struggling to make it online, or just getting started, or just want to see a step by step guide – grab your copy right here, right now of theAttraction Marketing Formula”.
