Seriously, this article will make you smile a lot… writing it made me smile, and laugh a bit.
Alright, let’s start with the most popular hashtags, they are:
You should use them to get more followers and… no I couldn’t, I just could not pull off this sarcastic joke, I tried though LOL.
Using hashtags won’t help much, neither will using filters, posting at the right time, or any other basic stuff like that.
You could play with them for fun and possibly get some more eyeballs, but you can’t solely rely on the basics to get more followers and likes.
What you need to kick ass on Instagram is the following:
I’ve talked about the power of jealousy marketing (called lifestyle marketing by most) and how Instagram is all about it, and this time I wanted to give you an action plan to make you popular on the social network.
But first, I want to ask you a question:
What kind of pictures do you like to see on Instagram (or anywhere else)?
Nice nature pics?
There is a pretty huge chance you like any of those categories, and even if you don’t, the rest of the world does and wants too see such pictures. Instagram is basically all about posting what others don’t or can’t have, or want to have.
I know cause I paid a lot of cash to learn what I’m sharing. I don’t use Instagram almost at all, but when it became popular I had to give it a try, so I’ve done a lot of stuff on there and can tell you what works the best.
Don’t really want to post my pics as I don’t like showing off, plus everything was a test (I have deleted most pics), but jets, cash, cars and exotic locations work better than pretty much anything else.
People just love those types of pictures.
I want to tell you one more thing here before I take you to the action plan:
Instagram is not used by too many entrepreneurs, it’s mostly used by wannabe marketers and kids trying to see cool pics. If you are thinking about posting more serious stuff, maybe Instagram is not the right place, or you could mix it up…
…just don’t think Instagram is the social network to build your serious brand, It’s just a place to get more traffic (not that quality but still traffic) and show off.
Now to the action plan:
1 Hire someone to promote you, or buy an already built account
You should be ready to lose a lot of followers if you a buy an account and change its name, so the first option might be a better choice.
Here’s the guy to go to if you want a head start – Branden Hampton, or you could search Google and find someone else.
Buying an account is not a bad option either, although you will lose people, you will still have an already marketed account ready to be monetized.
I know you probably wanted to see how to get off the ground for free, and I’ll show you some gangsta free marketing techniques too, but you should know free is not a cool option, it’s most often related to a lot of spending time to try and test, a lot of frustration and not too great results.
I don’t like free and never have, and don’t recommend you try anything free, but I know what it is to be on a tight budget, so don’t worry, I got you.
2 Free Contests
Contests are the only free thing worth doing (there has to be more, but I can’t think of anything else right now, maybe cause I hate free LOL), people love free stuff.
Post pictures of you sitting in your office surrounded by all the gifts you are about to give away, ask winners to take pics with your stuff and post them and just get creative here…
…and to take the game even further, you can hire models to promote your contests on their channels. You know hot chicks get a lot of attention, and when they promote a contest, that’s just magic LOL.
You will kill it with this method.
I know several people who have done this (I have too) and all of them believe this is among the the best ways (if not the best way) to build an Instagram following.
You don’t even need anything else to be huge on Instagram, yet I’ll tell you more, cause I promised you a huge smile… and I’ll do my best to deliver.
3 Jets, Cash, Cars and Boobs.
I already told you people love cars and jets, but if you have boobs, you’ll grow you Instagram following fast, real friggin fast LOL…
…don’t say I’m bad, you wanted the truth, right?
Well, boobs and ass is what everybody wants… even women.
Now, I want to tell you again I don’t like showing off (and I really don’t like faking) and don’t do it, but it works like a charm, it just does and you can use it for traffic… like most marketers.
You can rent cars, houses, or copy some cool pics from anywhere and post them, and people will like and share them, or maybe they will comment, as Instagramers prefer commenting rather than liking… if you don’t have boobs, hire someone that has.
That’s what you need to do to kick ass on Instagram, hashtags and proper timing could make a small difference, but Lifestyle marketing is what really works, which is why I told you about that bimmer that made me a millionaire at 22… and I did not even know what I was doing LOL.
