Getting Instagram followers for a Small Business, Startup or Crowdfunding venture
Jordan explains how your new business can sell via instagram.
Instagram is a unique and powerful photo-sharing app. Remember its core selling point is GREAT PHOTOS.
4 great types of content
1. Personal (taking train to work, sunny day, beach)
2. Adverts (should be clear, photo based and sized 612 x 612 pixels)
3. Competition! Share to win with a dedicated hashtag over a week works great.
4. Sharing customer/product shots
Do add as many people as you like, choose relevant people via hashtags. When I started i was adding 100 per hour!! Then manually 'culling' people who didn't follow back
DO manage your followers, make sure you are not following too many people who dont follow you back with the great (free) Crowdfire app http://www.crowdfireapp.com/
Do inject personality, sass, jazz... let us know the real you!
Dont share low quality photos
Dont use too may filters /hdr
Don't auto-share to twitter, tumblr, facebook. Each platform has a 'sweet spot' for content. Focus on providing targeted content for each platform.
Do enjoy posting! Make friends!
