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 🙂
