It’s often a bit hard to connect your blog with your Instagram profile because the one possible location where you can add up your link is in your Bio box (and the worst part for me is, my theme even doesn’t support that… :P). But I’m sure you’re ready to face any possible difficulty that comes in your way to promote your blog, just like this. But what to do when you’re all set to do anything to bang on your blog at Instagram? You don’t know what to do next? How to proceed? C*ap!
But don’t worry, because I’ve got something for you today! In this article, I’ll be mentioning some sure-shot strategies that are surely going to help you increase your blog’s productivity with instagram!
Let your readers know about you on Instagram (through the author bio)
The first step you gotta take while planning to maximize your business through Social Media is this. You can simply add up a link to your Instagram profile on your author bio. And not only in the author bio but in giveaways, special events, the thing you share on other social media platforms. Ask your readers to connect with you in a professional way. Let them know what you are sharing on Instagram. This will help you in 2 ways:
- One; the way you’re connecting with your readers will improve your productivity!
- Two; you’ll be able to make more contacts via Instagram
Give a teaser of what you’re gonna share next
That can be your next article, a new project, a new life experience, or whatever else. Create a tempting image of what’s coming next with your blog’s logo and URL, (if you’ll shorten it, I’d be much better!) Give a short hint about your next thing and then, ask your readers to let their views upon it! Start a conversation over it and then experience the brainstorming results of your branding.
In a study by the official Forrestor blog, they declared Instagram as the best platform to engage with readers saying, “Instagram delivered brands 58 times more engagement per follower than Facebook, and 120 times more engagement per follower than Twitter.” Instagram is clearly the place to start a conversation, and it’s awesome!
Show what YOU are
People on Instagram are keen to know about different people. If you’re indulged in internet marketing, then no matter if it’s Instagram, you gotta show what you are on each and every possible way to make loyal and converting contacts. Share your livelihood’s personal experiences, photos, etc.
Tell them what happened with you the other day, and by all this, link up your blog over it in such a nice and friendly manner that it doens’t appear to be link spamming. “A peek into your “private” world should always be kept at a professional level unless you’re a lifestyle blogger or talk about subjects that it makes sense,” says Peg Fitzpatrick!
Track your success with a Bitly link
The only possible way to track your success with Instagram posts is to use a Bit.ly link or another link shortener of your choice to track the clicks. Using a link shortener also allows you to customize your link to something that relates to your blog topic or the name of your blog post.
Create a short video teaser
Now this actually seems to be quite weird but if actually works! For this, you can use Flipgram or iMovie. Taking out time to create a special video containing value for your instagram followers will pay off, I assure you!
Various studies have proved that videos engage the best during the night time. So get set go, prepare a KICKASS video, wait till the day sets off, upload it, and enjoy!
Wrapping it up…
So here I ended, with my mind twisted and toughed to give you out more suggestion but my laziness, stopping me only at the 5 most important of them. Okk..so joke’s apart, I’ve finally concluded with my share today and as I ALWAYS say in the end, would love to know your experience and blah, blah, blah…. (man…I suck at giving conclusions)
