If you haven't heard already, Instagram is one of the best places for businesses, entrepreneurs, and marketers to get super targeted traffic for any niche!
And as with any other platform, the developers around the world come to help us get our social media marketing game on.
Here are 5 Instagram Tools these developers bestowed upon us to level up our game:
Automated DMs. I literally have thousands of twitter direct messages saying something like "Thanks for following me. As a token of my appreciation here's a Free PDF about _____".
Nobody wants your Free PDF lead magnet!
In their defense, I'm pretty sure that's the default message when you sign up for an automated DM service, but these are the users... these are the examples of why social media automation gets a bad rap.
Social Rank is an awesome tool for stepping your Instagame up!
It's the easiest way to identify, organize, and manage your followers on Instagram ( it also works on twitter as well btw ). Now you may think... that's cool... but what does that actually mean?
Don't worry, I got you covered! The best way to use Social Rank to level up your Instagram game is to use it to find the best Insta Collaboration Opportunities.
If I could start my entrepreneur journey all over again, I think there's a few things that I would have done differently to make sure it would go a bit smoother. I decided on bootstrapping for many reasons, and I still would do it again, but looking back, I realized how important and beneficial some resources are.
One specifically comes to mind.
For awhile now I've been thinking that being an entrepreneur and being content where I am... are total polar opposites.
I mean... an entrepreneur needs to be hungry, always looking to improve and to grow. Especially in the beginning stages, I was never fully satisfied with the amount of work I put in a single day, and that fueled me to work even harder and longer the next day.
And when I did start seeing some success... yeah having several customers is great... but I needed more to build up cash to expand, or to grow my ad budget, or to pay for some servers for the next project.
And even businesses that are super successful, becoming stagnant can breed room for an "Uber" to completely take over the market essentially over night.
So... how can you be always looking to grow and stay hungry... how can you be an entrepreneur... and be content and happy at the same time?
Instagram is amazing! I love it! As a consumer, as a producer, and especially as a digital marketer.
For a long time I had doubts that Instagram could drive traffic as much as the other big name Social Networks... especially since there is only one available spot to have a clickable link ( The infamous Link in Bio )...
Motivation, Habits, and Discipline. Three very different takes on how to help get us to where we want to be.
I've implemented all three in some form or fashion over the years and all have merit... as well as pitfalls.
Let me explain:
Are you a blogger and looking for more exposure for your content?
You've come to the right place. Here are 4 awesome tools you can start using today to promote your stuff!
As social media automation goes, I'm pretty baller! I've been using apps & tools to schedule my social posts for quite awhile, but the discovery of looping/recycling/rescheduling my evergreen social media posts has been the ultimate time saver!
There are some amazing tools to recycle your evergreen content on social media like
But nothing has come along to help us repost our evergreen photos to Instagram!
You might have noticed that I don't have any Publish dates on my blog... And if you didn't, you do now!
You also might be wondering why I even bother. Well... The main reason I hide the publish date on my blog is because I mostly craft evergreen content, content that can stay relevant for months and even years in the future.
When my content is evergreen, I can share it and re-share it... and then re-share it some more, getting more value, more views, and more email captures with just this single piece of content.
Now that's awesome!
BUT!.... the problem is, people inherently have a bias against older content. Which is why it is important for me to hide the publish date, so people don't have an issues with the content at all.
